From her stay at Khamp Khyra
I'm going to let Mom take the keyboard again - we were akhtually building a difFURent post but the nice Amy Lady - Rocky's SUPREME reskhuer and foster mom - sent Mom an email she's been waiting to see since she had heard the news ten or so days ago -
You have already met Maggie's pups - Trisha, Jimmy/Seamus/, and Sweet Pea/Terry when I first shared Trisha and Jimmy's story as part of the transport
Sadly, Maggie passed away following complications with her spay - more about that after I share the incredible tribute Maggie's foster mom Lisa wrote for Maggie
Our Sweet Precious Maggie
One question every dog owner and every dog lover has to face one day is “How do you say the ultimate good-bye to the ultimate dog?” If anyone has the answer to this question please let me know because today I am trying to figure out how to say good-bye? A couple of weeks ago I went to Georgia to pick up a stray dog that had been living under an abandoned building with her 4 precious pups. I had no idea what type of dog this was going to be, was she going to be friendly, was she going to be okay with other dogs, was she going to be feral, that was just a few of the questions going through my mind as I started my state to state drive, the only thing I knew for sure was they called her Maggie. I had no idea that I was about to be BLESSED with the sweetest most incredible dog I could ever dream of sharing my life with. The first night was a rather stressful night for me as she was pulling and chewing on her outdoor dog run with great intensity. I went out to reassure her around 9 o’clock that night that everything would be okay, I promised her, if she would just hang with me for a few weeks that she would end up with a great home of her own, a family to love her and a life where she would never again have to worry where or if she would receive her next meal. I sat with her for a long while and it was like she truly understood what I was trying to tell her, she practically climbed right up in my lap and simply couldn’t get close enough; it was as if she tried to mold her body right into my chest. I can’t even begin to tell you the relief and joy I felt the next morning when I went out to check on her and she had decided to stay the night, she never pulled on her dog run again and she never acted like she wanted to be anywhere else except right next to me. We would take walks in the woods behind my house and I wouldn’t even have to hold her leash, she stayed right beside me, if I stopped to sit for a minute, she would just lie right at my feet and look at me with eyes of pure love. Everyone that met Maggie immediately fell in love with her, she just had this way about her, even though life had not always been good to her, she had this truly incredible trusting nature about her and she simply loved to be loved!! Maggie had this thing she would always do if you got anywhere around her, she would sit down, drop her head ever so slightly and put her paw out for you to shake it, this was done several times a night, she never got tired of shaking paws and giving hugs. I never got to fulfill the promise I made to Maggie that 1st night because today she is sharing those special paw shakes and Maggie hugs with those in heaven and we are left asking WHY? We lost her to a freak reaction to anesthesia during a simple medical procedure; I guess somebody had much better plans for her. Maggie was a very special girl that had a unique goodness about her that will never be forgotten. She will be greatly missed and loved forever, I feel honored to have gotten to shake her paw and share my life with her. Good-bye my precious girl and thanks for being the ULTIMATE DOG!!!
I would caution you do some research on ACEPROMAZINE before permitting anyone to prescribe and/or use it on your furry ones -
Sweet Maggie, we are the ones that God blessed by allowing each and every one of us who met you to share in your love, your grace, your peace and the dignity that you chose to have in your life. We are better for knowing you and Heaven is a happier, waggier, more lovely place because of your presence. There were greater things planned for you Maggie. We should all be so lucky.
Rest in love and peace my sweet girl. I dream of our next meeting.
