Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Psalm 127:1

Well if you know our family at all or have followed our blog for any length of time, you know we are animal people and total suckers for a sweet furry face. So that will explain why we were heart broken to have had to put our sweet great dane Macy to sleep this past weekend. 
She really was the best dog and loved our girls so much. We used to joke that she thought they were her puppies. 
We were told about six months ago that they thought she had bone cancer in her foot and if that was the case she would maybe live at the longest six months...and that's exactly what she did. She fought hard for six months to stay active and even on bad days followed me and the girls around.
She never knew she weighed 190lbs. she was HUGE but thought she was a lap dog.  When Morgan was on her mission trip this summer she moped around for two weeks and then the minute she saw Morgan walk through the door she was like a puppy again. If Ryanne went for a run or to ride her bike Macy would sit at the end of the driveway and watch over her until she was safely back in the yard.
Saturday really was the worst day because we love her so much and she was a part of our family. Having pets is hard because we get really attached but we had a lot of good years to love on our Macy girl so that's what we are remembering.
