Mackey hit the jackpot when he came into rescue in 2005 and was adopted by his foster family just in time for Christmas. He had a good life and made it through surgeries, an arthritic hip, mast cell disease, and metastatic carcinoma, but finally succumbed to kidney failure. His outlook was positive, with every day being a good day, another day to be entertaining, to eat, to go for a walk on the trails, to squeeze himself into small spaces. Farewell, dear Mackey.
