RIP my "best" friend

On the 04 December 1994 a tiny brindle staffie came into this world. Mac Fubar…………He slept in my bed for six years until I moved to Pretoria. He was “officially” my brother’s dog but he was a part of the family. When I was pregnant he slept next to my bump and when I went into labour he paced up and down the driveway with me stopping each time I did and staring up at me. This dog never left my side. When I brought baby T home my brother and my mother where there to take the baby and to make sure Mac wasn’t upset or offended or anything. He JUMPED off the floor straight into my arms he was that excited to see me and he loved T from that day onwards. He never left T’s side and he “BABYSAT” for me all the time,. They dug holes together, hunted in the garden lay on the floor watching TV and were best friends.

When my brother and I left he stayed with my parents and once he was the only dog left he moved into their queen sized bed and even deeper into their hearts. He was their baby he went everywhere with them and when they went out or away he had a “doggie sitter”.

He loved it when ALL HIS FAMILY was home for holidays and even opened his big heart to accept my two doggies and my cat!!! My brother’s three year old daughter was also taken in licked looked after and she loved him too!!..

He was adored this dog and this weekend he had to be put to sleep, he was on heart pills for the last six months and just short of his fourteenth birthday our amazing Mac past on. The entire family is in mourning and it is very hard for all of us to say goodbye.

I have tears in my eyes while I’m writing this and I haven slept since I heard the news!!

Rest in Peace my “best” friend I will NEVER forget you!!!
