      Our time to say goodbye

      With love in our hearts, DH and I have made the decision that it's time to say goodbye to Maddie. After 14.5 wonderful years, she is growing very tired and it's time for her to cross the Bridge and play with Ben and Brooks and Magic and all her friends here from the Lab board that we have told her about.

      I talked at length to the vet from Cornell this evening and she is making the arrangements there. It will be either Thursday or Friday. Maddie has been part of a Lab DNA study since 2009 and we will be taking her back to complete the circle, so she can help other Labs and people. It is still so very hard, but this makes it a bit easier knowing that she will live on in the research that they are doing on so many diseases.

      She has been getting weaker and weaker in the back end and has no appetite. And she continues to lose weight. We know that we don't see the spark of a Lab much any longer and we've vowed to help her a day earlier rather than a day later.

      I'm sure there is another pup in the future, but we'll be helping Hailey through the next couple months and remembering all the great moments from the past 14.5 years with Doobie-Do. I will miss her so, so much.

      So very sorry you and your family (two-legged and four-legged) are going through this difficult time.
      May memories of happier days bring you comfort.
