Mafi, Galga Extraordinaire, Adopted 10/8/2002 - 3/16/16

Recommended Posts

It hit this morning, when I awakened, and the first thing I did was look toward her bed to be sure she was sleeping and safe. She wasn't there, and without thinking, I started to rise, thinking she might have gone downstairs to potty. She was very frail and unsteady, after having had several strokes and a very unsteady hind end which crumpled easily. But dignified and independent as she was, she insisted on doing it by herself.

 

I'd built a new ramp for her last fall in preparation for another rough winter. She was much more secure, and liked going up and down to the yard by herself. Thankfully it was the winter that never was, so, with mom running out to shovel snow as it accumulated, and sanding it when it got slippery, the ramp was her lifeline. How ironic it was, that the onset of spring brought on tougher times for her body, which just could not keep up with her spirit.

 

Mafi was not in her bed this morning, nor was she navigating downstairs or down the deck. She was transitioning from the Queen to Angel after her journey began last night with the help of our beloved vet, lying on the bed from which she reigned. Today was a very quiet day, her absence both silent and overbearing.

 

She was an enigma in many ways, and one day I'll be able to share thousands of amazing, funny and touching stories. Right now is time for contemplation and acceptance. But it's also time to relive the celebration of 10 years with Mafi.

 

Adopted 10/8/2002 - 3/16/2016. Please celebrate her life and her radiance. More of her story is on her video page.

Thank you all.

Jordan

I am very sorry for your loss, she was a very special girl. It hardly seems that ten years have gone by since you adopted her. Mafi was very lucky to have you as her guardian.
