“MARDI”

MEADOWLAKE MARDI GRAS

IN MEMORY OF OUR PRECIOUS MARDI

Mardi became ill and weak very quickly in late Dec. 2015.  She deteriorated rapidly and within 3-4 weeks she left us to cross the Rainbow Bridge.  They saw a tumor in her abdomen that was depleting her red blood cells.  She left an emptiness in our hearts, but will always be special in our thoughts.

“Mardi” was our very first Border Terrier.  After doing several months of research to find a small dog that would live harmoniously with our Labs, I contacted Meadowlake Terriers in Illinois and was placed on a waiting list.

Several months after that, I got the call and we drove down and picked up Meadowlake Mardi Gras, at 9 weeks old.

Mardi turned out to be everything we could have wished for, and more.

Show Quality and a good breeding prospect, along with being a great companion. Mardi quickly earned her Show Championship and went on to produce 3 lovely litters of puppies.

She produced large litters and was a wonderful Mama.  Mardi retired in 2010 to just lounge around, and be treated like the Queen that she is!  She will live out her life at Rushwind where she belongs.
