Maka (January 2004 – February 2015)
Dear Family, Friends and Readers,
One week ago, I was given word that Maka, has gone missing.
Maka is what my mother calls a, “rescue dog”. Back in 2004, my sister was driving home late at night. Something ran in front of her car and she stopped to check. As she opened her door, a young dog jumped on her, cold and scared, it was, “hugging” my sister. My sister took the dog home, took it to the humane society and posted missing dog ads to see if the owner would recognize their dog. After 30 days, there was no word so we claimed him.
He was given the name Maka because he has an unusual pair of eyes. Maka is Hawaiian for eyes. When you shine a light in his eyes, one is red, one is blue. Maka was very active, he loved to play tetherball and escape from the fence.
Maka, however, was very sickly. He has had many surgeries to address sists that appeared around his neck and legs. As my living situation changed for a month, I was not home to see his health deteriorate. So when I was told that there was a possibility that he ran away to die, it wasn’t something that I could consider A lot of effort has been made to look for him. Including getting the Humane Society involved in our bulletins. How fitting since when we first found him, we posted everywhere to find his owner.
Because some time has past, I am ready to accept that he is gone and to me.. presumed dead. Maka was a very special dog to me. He slept on my bed with me for many years, even when he and I couldn’t fit comfortably. When I made a website, I was told to name it something that relates to me, so I named it Maka Boy. Because I made videos, and already had a website, I named my productions, Maka Boy Media Productions. When I started a businesses, I named it Maka Boy Services.
To me and my family, Maka was a source of joy that brought my family happiness for over ten years. Now that he is gone, his memory will live on by the means of this website and media productions and for now, my business.
All I can say now is thank you Maka, for protecting us, for loving us, and for bringing us happiness for all these years. You will be dearly missed. Good bye.
