Maggie May



When someone who has been your best friend and constant companion is no longer here, it's very hard to continue your daily rituals without them. I had not realized how many little unimportant things had become automatic, and unnoticed in my day to day routines with Maggie. I guess when you are retired, like I am, and spend most of your waking hours working at home, the way I do, you simply don't realize how often you are having a conversation with the dog!  And so this past month, I found it very comforting to have those little conversations with her wonderful spirit. 

Rescued September, 2000 - September 27, 2010

So here's to Maggie, the good listener, the hard worker, our protector and old friend. We will miss you, but there's no way that we'll ever forget you.  You are the Dog!

Maggie loved you (I can see it in her eyes) and she loved life. How lucky that she chose you to live it with! Thanks for the beautiful photos and post.

A wonderful tribute to your beautiful dog...

Our Daisy is 13 and beginning to show signs of her age...we also rescued her, in 2002...she was around 5. She's been the best dog that either of us have ever had. I know how much your Maggie is missed, as I know how much I will miss our Daisy when she moves on...

Oh dear MJ<
I understand your word so good, we lost our dog in June and our life seems not the same. Yes its hard to loose your dog, take care and maybe after a long time , you find a place in your heart, never instead of your sweet beloved Maggie, but as an own individual, maybe when the t=ime is there, for now take care and I wish you all the strenght you need, You are not alone in this.

What a beautiful dog! I LOVE her name. Your post made me cry. Both photos really give the spirit and nature of her.

I understand. I have a young rescue, a little female terrier mix named Izzy. Her pic is on my blog, Mystical Journeys. I can't imagine her not in my life.

May God Bless you and bring healing, but oh how your life was enriched meeting and being best friends with her.
