Love Letter from Mac to Celtic"
human companion and I just came back from
nanny's and pops' this
morning. We spent the holiday weekend
there. Pops took me out for
walks and nanny kept rubbing me. I met a
little white dog yesterday.
She was nice but she wasn't you. I started
remembering when we first met.
The humans brought me into this room where
I saw you and a human.
You came right over to me. I could see
that you had an operation on your
leg but you still let me jump all over
you. It was love at first sight
for me. I was hoping that you would take
me home. Then the humans took
me away and I thought that you didn't like
me. They brushed me and then
they brought me back to you and I was so
happy as you were taking me to
your house! That night was kind of scary
but you kept coming over to me
and kissing me. You even let me play with
As time went on, we became inseparable.
You let me sleep next to you
and sit with you and every Friday when we
had to have our baths I would
hide and you would come and get me and I
knew that it wouldn't be so
bad. When the noise from the sky would
come you would let me sit next
to you and help me make it through the
awful sound. I wasn't so scared
when you were around. Since you have gone
I try to be brave so our
human companion doesn't get upset. I hate
to see her cry! Remember
how we would chase each other around the
house? Now, I don't want to
play anymore. Our human companion tries to
coax me into playing but
it's not the same as chasing and jumping
Then one day, our human companion started
crying. I knew you didn't
feel so good but I didn't know what was
wrong. She kept bringing us to
the doctor and he was always checking you
out. Then you went away for a
few days and I was miserable. Our human
companion was always crying. I
tried to comfort her like you always did
but she still cried. Then you
came home but you weren't better. You had
lost so much weight and you
didn't even want your treats! Remember how
I used to sit by my treat
and let you try to get it? As soon as you
got close enough, I would eat
it. I'm sorry now that I didn't give you
my treats. If you come back
to me, I'll let you have all the treats in
I miss you so much!
It's not the same anymore with you gone.
We went back to the doctor and he lifted
you onto the table. I didn't
like being there so I went outside. Our
human companion stayed with you
and then after a long time she came out
alone. You were not with her.
I waited for you at the front door when we
got home but you didn't come
back. Our human companion tried to tell me
what was wrong but I didn't
understand what she was saying.
Then she brought me to see you. It was a
nice room, they let me come
in. You were in a nice box on a table. I
knew the minute I walked into
the room that you were there! I started to
jump up and down, my Celtic
came back to me! Our human companion
lifted me up and let me kiss
you. You were sleeping and you had your
lovely bow in your hair. I was
so happy to see you but something was
Then I realized that you had left
Your ashes now sit on the entertainment
cabinet next to Vixon. I miss
you so much! I don't want another
companion in my life, I just want you
to come home to me.
Our human companion is always sad. She
gives me plenty of love and she
takes me nearly everywhere. I don't get
too lonely when she is at work
cause your stuff is still around the
house. I sleep on your bed and
think of you. The toys we played with are
still around the house so I
can play with them and remember you. When
she comes home at night, we
go to the park and on weekends we go to
the park in the mornings and in
the evenings. I like to hang out with her.
She lets me sit on her lap
whenever I want and she is always petting
and kissing me.
Don't worry my beloved Celtic, I will take
care of our human companion
for you the way you did. When she is sad
and lonely, I will go to he
I will make sure no one hurts her and I
will watch out for strangers.

Celtic, I know that you are watching over
us and I hope that when it is
my time, our human companion will have the
same strength and love to set
me free to join you. Then we will be

and know that you are
always in our hearts. Until we meet again
my beloved companion,
love you so!

in memory of Celtic and Mac

You are my friend, my partner, my confidante, my companion,
my baby, my life.
The devotion you showed me was immeasurable.
You patiently waited at the window till I came home
and greeted me with such enthusiasm.
Never venturing far from my side.
You always seemed to know when people needed your comfort
and you gave of yourself with an open
You are continuing your journey to a glorious new life

Samuel Butler wrote: "The great pleasure of a dog
is that you may make a fool of yourself with him
and not only will he not scold you but he will make a fool of himself too."
Mac, you proved the above statement
My heart will always have holes in it until I meet with you
That will be the time when we are re-united, never to be parted again.
Love never fades,
it transcends time and space,
as my love for you will.
