We plan on taking Mac's ashes and scattering them in places he enjoyed. The best thing I can say is that he was a loyal, playful, smart, and lovable companion and added so much to our lives since I first held him as a puppy. He loved to catch frisbees when he was healthy and in his prime. He was protective of our cats. He didn't bark a lot -- until his hearing started to get bad. His fur was soft and whenever we gave him a brushing, it seemed that there would be enough hair to make a sweater from. He traveled well, and loved to go camping with us, and follow on hikes. Everyone that knew him loved him, and I shall always have a piece of me that is missing with his absence. Adrienne was the one that usually brushed his fur, and as much as he seemed to not want to get it done, he resigned himself to it. Marjorie loved Mac, and this was very hard for her, too. There are many memories that I have from his 11 years with us, and those, along with the images I have of him won't leave me.
I decided to go through som old zip drives and see what old digital images I might have of Mac. I have some shot with one of my earliest digicams, The Logitech photoman - in monochrome in 1996. Then, another with an Apple Quicktake 200 in 1998. I'm actually surprised that I found them. They are not the best shots of him, but they are typical of the usual pet shots that one takes.
- Mac only a few months old... Logitech Photoman - 1996.
