In Memory of Madison (16-10)

On May 20th, Madison was brought into GRRIN’s care after a long trip from Istanbul, Turkey, to Omaha. Everyone she met loved her, including her wonderful foster mom, Betty, and her caseworker, Pam. After a few months in foster care, Madison had a forever family picked out but her health started to suddenly decline. Betty and Pam worked tirelessly to take her to medical appointments for tests and hopefully a positive outcome. Unfortunately, Madison was diagnosed with late-stage leukemia in August; a few weeks later, on September 10th, she crossed the Rainbow Bridge in the loving arms of her new GRRIN family. After living on the streets of Turkey, she had over three months of luxury and comfort with Betty and her Golden Doodle, Rudy. Please check back for a story written by Pam and Betty. In the meantime, Betty shared with GRRIN volunteers some of the great things about Madison:

  • LOVED tennis balls (one got her out of the tall grass in Chicago) and she collected them in the yard (NEVER brought them back into the house!)
  • Was mercilessly teased by the squirrels in the backyard
  • Could be a bit bossy; ‘requesting’ balls to be thrown
  • Rode beautifully in the car
  • Loved to be outside and just hang in the yard
  • Was a good buddy to Rudy (even if, as a GoldenDoodle, he’s only half Golden!)
