Title: Maddie Moloney-Harmon 1/16/1998 - 4/13/2013
Post by: runningmadly on April 14, 2013, 09:27:23 AM
Goodbye, Maddie.
Our long journey together has come to an end.
Your path now takes you on a road I cannot follow.

Keep moving forward,
Onward and upward.
Don't look back
And don't look down-
Although, honestly, let's admit it:
Have you ever needed this advice from me before?

And hey up there, you Dogs of Elysium!
Make a hole in the crowd for a champion.
Set the bars at twelve inches and show her to the start line
Get ready to watch her run.

Ready, Maddie?

Go!

Maddie Moloney-Harmon
1/16/1998 - 4/13/2013

"You were my compass star
You were my measure
You were a pirate's map
Of buried treasure
If this is all correct
The last thing I'd expect
The prosecution rests
It's time that I confessed
I must have loved you"


(Sting, "Ghost Story", from Brand New Day)

Oh Tom, I am so sorry to read this.  Maddie was such a special girl.  I'll never forget "saving" her at the Toys for Tots trial.

Sorry to hear this.  Maddie was truly an amazing dog to watch - I only ever saw you two at Champs.  But think of the joyful reunion across that Bridge now - wow, they are having a GREAT time!
What a long and amazing life here on this path.  RIP, Maddie.

Tom and Pat, I am just so sad to hear about Maddie.  She was as great an agility dog as I have ever known, truly one of the really special ones.  I will always remember our many years of seeing you guys run at Champs.  Please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss.

Tom and Pat,
     Maddie is such a legend and Tom and Maddie are a team in agility and in life.  For us, we are so sad that she has left you and can no longer be at your side.  For us, she will always be there as a legend never dies, they live forever in our memories and our thoughts.
     Maddie was a great agility dog, but she was so much more than that....... she was your friend, part of your heart and a huge part of your daily life.  I am so sorry that you have lost your best friend and part of your heart that goes with her.
    The whole agility world is a smaller place when one of the GREATS leave us.  We are so blessed to have had such a huge number of years to gain memories of Maddie as a great dog and Tom with Maddie as a great team.

     Safe journey Maddie, we all love you.

Sharon

I didn't get the opportunity to watch Maddie & Tom run together, but the post above it so full of love and compassion I broke down in tears. What a loving epitaph. All I can say is - the price of a great dog is a broken heart at the end. So glad that Tom got to play with Maddie and have that special bond.

Dear Tom and Pat, we are so saddened to hear of Maddie's passing. We were fortunate for so many years at Champs to watch in awe and learn from your team. She was the queen of small dogs, the eternal Champion. Impossible to beat and wonderful to watch. Your relationship was amazing. She loved agility with you and it showed. No dog could ask for a better life than with you and Pat. All the travels, the adventures and the accomplishments together with you. We will remember and admire that sweet little girl. RIP Maddie. The others have big shoes to fill.

Tom and Pat,

Audrey and I share the feelings of all who have written about your loss of Maddie.  What a wonderful life she had with the two of you.  No dog could ask for more.  And the two of you could ask no more of a dog than what she gave you.  So sorry.

Tom & Pat,

I am so sad and sorry to hear the news of Maddie's passing.   So many of us know this pain and our hearts and tears go out to you.

The first thing that comes to mind of Team Maddie is what an amazing dog and what an inspirational team!   As Maddie and you broke every points and titles record you left us with so many great memories.  Maddie was pure excellence in the ring and loving every bit of it.  When it came to the championships Team Maddie was the champion of champions!  Many of us learned so much from you inspiring us to bring out the best in our own dogs.  I know well that Maddie was more than agility to you, she was your loving companion and a huge part of your being.

I miss the times that we got together....I'll never forget Maddie!   May those many great memories carry you through this tough time.

Leo & late Maya
