Maceo, a Chocolate Lab/Doberman mix, was old and failing. After several surgeries and courses of chemotherapy for his extensive mast cell tumors, it was time for him to be sedated and spend his final days with the children. He was there before they came into the family, and he welcomed and protected them.
As usual, he always found a place to rest near them.
Our granddaughters and Maceo were best pals. Now it was their turn to care for him.
He is so weak and in distress. Nieta covers him up.
Now he seems to be more comfortable, lying next to her favorite stuffed animal, “Baa.” Only Maceo could separate her from Baa.
Shh! Maceo is sleeping.
He had to be put down a few days later.
