A Tribute to Mama's Best Friend, Maguiness
Today I lost a long time friend........a co-pilot, a playmate, a greeter at the door, a drool maker, a pillow for my kids, a watch guard of our home and everyone in it, a member of our family that was with me before this family was even created.........my dog, Maguiess.
Things are pretty raw for me today. It is a sad day. I can't even bear that feeling of coming home again and not seeing her waiting for me at the door.....tail wagging. Oh that little stump of a tail.....I loved that little tail.
I wanted to share with you all a look at some of our memories of her. She was a crazy dog. A silly girl who was ALWAYS in some sort of trouble. The stories we will have about her are plentiful and full of happiness. She was an angel around the kids and full of patience even in times that I had none left in me. She was stubborn and determined and a love. We did have our struggles with her and her health has been on the decline slowly. I am just glad that she isn't suffering and that she can rest easy now.
She was given to me as a gift by my husband (who was my boyfriend then) 9 years ago for Valentine's Day. She pounced in the door with a red balloon tied around her tummy. Her big eyes, and soft droopy ears will be remembered forever. Her gentleness.....
Good bye, my girl......my "Maggie Mae" as I like to call you. Rest in Peace.
Here are some memories, in no particular order but in our hearts for sure.
