My heart breaks for a Levittown family mourning the loss of their beloved dog, but you can help ease their pain and honor his memory, according to an obituary posted on LevittownNow.
It made me cry. The Maddocks family wrote an obituary for their recently deceased 15-year-old furry best friend Chaos Anthony Maddocks and it’s just heartbreaking.
You can feel their love for this dog and how much they are affected by his passing through their words, which reads (in part):
“Chaos was not just a dog, he was our family’s patriarch dog and his absence left an unbearable void. So, until we meet again, his paw prints will be deeply etched in our hearts. “
The obituary also reveals that Chaos worked for nine years at the Attleboro Nursing Home, helping patients, adoring to snuggle up and play with his furry best friend, the other dog in the Maddocks family, Diesel. You can read the entire piece here. Have a handkerchief handy.
However, you can easily help this family cope with their enormous loss, they said in the post.
The family’s request is simple. They would love to see a photo of your furry friend.
“If you’ve never had the privilege (of) meeting Chaos, please take a moment to treat your own furry baby with a special hug or treat, in honor of Chaos and please send photos to ChaosFurever @ gmail .com. “
They will randomly select a winner (at the latest) on February 18, which would have been Chao’s 16th birthday. The winner will receive a box of favorite Chaos toys and treats, so include a mailing address.
It is the sweetest. I have to admit that I never understood the deep love people seemed to have for their pets … until a year ago when my family brought home our very first puppy. So I fully understand now.
I send love to the Maddocks family. I’m so sorry for your loss and hope the community will come forward to support you with photos!
