Big Chief

God was protecting Chief and HIS plan is always perfect.
No matter how hard we tried to get him adopted,
Chief was meant to spend the last nine weeks of his life with Madison and me.
I love the term Gentle Giant. Because of abuse by humans, he was fearful and defensive, but he responded to Love and learned to Trust. He became my Gentle Giant.,,”
He was greatly loved and our home is very quiet tonight without my precious guard dog.
How special to hear his snoring by my bed last night.
Every moment of life is SO precious.

Thank you MAGRR for your care and devotion to these precious Goldens .
So many more are waiting….

Deepest affection,
Yvonne (Chief’s Foster Mom)






In Loving Memory of MAGRR’s Chief.  We will see you at Rainbow Bridge. Foster Mom Yvonne Thomas & Madison

When tomorrow starts without me,
and I’m not here to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
filled with tears for me.

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry,
the way you did today,
while thinking of the many things
we didn’t get to say.

I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you,
and each time you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too.

When tomorrow starts without me,
don’t think we’re far apart,
for every time you think of me,
I’m right there in your heart

Chief came to MAGRR with a broken spirit because of the way he had previously been treated by humans.  We gave him love and the best medical care that we could, but it was not meant to be.  His medical issues were more than we knew and his little body just couldn’t overcome.  We at MAGRR find some comfort in knowing that he was loved these last weeks that he spent with his wonderful foster mom, Yvonne Thomas and her sweet Madison.   He knew love and had everything that he needed.  He will always be remembered by his MAGRR family.  Losing one in the program is always hard because we want to save them all.

Rest in Peace Big Chief
You were loved
