It was with many tears and a heavy heart that we had to send our “Special Golden Girl Maya” to heaven. She waged a hard battle with a brain tumor, with her usual grace and dignity, she did her best until the end. The 19 months she was with us was all too short, but in that short time she brought more joy to us than most people can experience in a lifetime. Maya was a special girl and every time she had a seizure it broke our hearts for her. When it was determined it was a brain tumor and the probability that it would be benign was in her favor we thought we could make her life more comfortable. That was not to be. Just as she was one in a million, so was the fact that her tumor was rare and malignant. With Maya we had many wonderful times. We traveled cross country not once but twice and she was always happy to ride. Everyone who met her commented on the fact that she always looked like she was smiling, and she was. She loved to go to our property in the mountain just to walk around and enjoy the quiet and was happy to lounge in the shade. Though our hearts still ache, we rejoice for Maya and take comfort in the fact that she is now free from the earthly constraints of disease and is now running free, happy and healthy with her Golden brother Andy. Thank you GRRR for the gift of Maya Faith.
