RIP Maggie May

In happier times: all dressed up for Halloween


Well, we came home from our weekend trip, and the sitter told us that Maggie had been pretty lazy all weekend, and hadn’t moved since after she had eaten Sunday night. By this morning, she still hadn’t moved and wasn’t interested in getting up, even when we rattled her food dishes.

We tried to help her up, and found she’d lost function in all of her limbs. The brain tumor must have finally gotten to a point where she couldn’t do much of anything anymore. We knew it was time.

Kayla even nudged at her and pawed her, trying to encourage her to get up, but she didn’t have any better luck than we had.

With the help of our wonderfully compassionate vet, Tim Blocher, Maggie passed at about 9:00 this morning. She was eleven years old and leaves behind her sisters Kayla and Penny, and her brother Cooper. We will love her and honor her memory forever. Rest in peace, Maggie May. You were a very good dog.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog

  1. So sorry for your loss, I just found this site today and you have awesome posts!

    It hurts to lose your best friend, my Labrador was stolen just before Christmas. :( I’ll never forget him, but I cherish the time we had. I’m sure you’re family will be able to find joy in thinking of the good times, or simply that funny doggy smile and wagging tail. :)

  2. It hurts like the Dickens when one member of the family leaves us. The joy is in remembering the years you had with your Maggie.

  3. The reason dogs are so popular with people is because they wag their tails instead of their tongues.

  4. I am so, so sorry for you and your family (2-legged and 4-legged). Even as I write this, my 8 year old Leo (German Shepherd/Corgi mix), is curled up against me on the sofa. I look forward to receiving your e-mails everyday. All of your articles and videos touch me so deeply, and remind all of us what a precious gift dogs are to us. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family – and thank you again for sharing your love of God’s angels on earth.

  5. My heart and prayers go out to you, your family and your dogs. Losing a pet is never easy, but I know she thought the world of you and loved everyone with all she had. My happy memories and sunny days take the place of the emptiness and pain.

    My most sincere and heartfelt sympathies.

  6. When I read of another loss of a pet it really touches my heart. I have lost so many over the years, and you never stop missing them. I try to imagine them all playing together somewhere wonderful, like “heaven” and with my parents. Probably corny but it’s just a thought and a nice one at that.
