Mack GH-714

mack-front-door mack-memorial macks4jane-copyMy name is Greg Corrigan. A few years ago (July 2011), I thought I might be able to do some good by offering my services to be a short term foster parent for a dog needing a home. When I was asked to go to Ellicott City, Maryland to pick up a 5 year old golden-doodle mix whose family could no longer keep him, I had no idea what the future would be. I brought “Mack” home. He refused to get out of the car for 6 hours. It took me days to teach him to walk OFF the leash (we have 27 acres here!).

But it wasn’t long before Mack opened up his heart and fell in love with this place, and me, and everyone I know. He is truly the most wonderful dog I have ever known.

Mack died in my arms on July 2, 2016, after a relatively short illness. As he was dying, he was still so happy just to be held. I told him how much I loved him and how grateful I was for all the goodness he brought into my life. I miss him terribly. In his honor, I took boxes of tennis balls and left them at dog parks in the area with Mack’s picture on and an explanation of why this gift was being left in his honor.

Thank you Goldheart for the “golden” treasure that remains in my heart…Mack is a joy that will remain a forever blessing to me.

Thank you so very much.
