Maggie 10 wonderful years

Just letting you know that we made a very tough decision last night to go ahead and let Maggie go. In some ways knowing about the cancer for the last 5 1/2 months was easier than letting one go in an emergency situation but in other ways it was terrible.

Maggie still played with her Cuz went pee and poop, barked at the construction worker at our window and laid on the floor with us just before we took her. Just like any other day in her life. Sadly her body just wouldn't let her eat and keep the food down. She had wasted away to nothing but throughout all of this, she has remained pain free and just our regular normal sweet Maggie. Yesterday she began vomiting everything up again. We had to force feed her for several days. It was time.

Once again, cancer has taken the life of a wonderful family member who we will always love.

This has been a roller coaster of emotions for us. She was with us for ten wonderful years. Always sweet, kind and loving even through this terrible disease. Words can't express the pain and loss we feel.
We'd like to thank everyone here for all of your help and suggestions when we needed fresh ideas. I know many of you have been through the same situations. It is never easy.
We'll always love you Maggie and hope and pray you are now cancer free. You've always worn an honorary halo because you have been such a good girl throughout your life. Now it is a real one.

Jesse, Oakley, and Xander's Mom
Sweet, gentle Maggie, in our hearts forever!
Our hearts are still broken Jazzi, we miss you so much!
In Loving Memory of Misty. We love you Misty Mist.
We'll never forget you Callie and Quebec.

Re: Maggie 10 wonderful years

Robbie, I'm sorry. Your family has been through the wringer these last few months, but through it all you have been faithful to your dear Maggie. She could have no better, no more loyal and dedicated companions with whom to share her life and her love.

You know that Maggie has been in my prayers for quite a while. You shall remain in mine. Please be gentle with yourselves. I wish there were something I could do or say. Know this: you are in my heart.
