Myra and I are very sorry to tell you that we had to euthanize Maggie, our 11 year old Rottweiler mix, on December 30th. Her adrenal cancer, which had been in remission for over 3 years, returned and quickly metastasized to her brain and internal organs. Maggie, as she was her whole life, was extraordinarily stoic and well-behaved to the end, even though she was gravely ill. As I laid on a comforter with her at the vet hospital yesterday, spending my final moments with her, I started to cry. As Maggie has always done, every time she has seen me cry, she raised her head off the comforter and licked my tears away. Despite being so sick she could barely walk, she still comforted me in the final moments of her life.|
We will love her forever, and miss her every day.
It's been one year, and I still wear her tag on a chain around my neck. I think about her every day, and I know she watches over me.
Not a day goes by that I don't think about this dog who rescued me. The hole in my heart is still very big. I love you, Maggie.
It's so hard to believe that you've been gone for 3 years. I still think about you every day, and I still wear your dog tag on a chain around my neck. Thank you for rescuing me.
Maggie is still so present with us, and now Gracie is very sick. We are praying, but it does not look good.
Gracie went to be with Maggie today. Gracie was the warmest, most loving, gentle soul. We grieve for her.
