Arrival Story:
Maggie is Hawkeye's (gone over the Rainbow Bridge) daughter. My vet called and said that her best friend had a silver Mini and wanted to know what the stud fee would be to breed her with Hawkeye (a black mini as well!). I told her I just wanted a puppy. Was there when the puppies were born--they were all black...have no clue if she is one I first picked out--but at six weeks old, she picked me out!!

Maggie is very, very bright...she sits and watches TV and knows exactly what she is watching. She can be sound asleep in another part of the house, and if a commercial comes on that has a dog in it, she recognizes the music and just has to come and bark at it!!!! She doesn't like other dogs at all--is an ALPHA female, but, she loves her bud, Frasier....she says she adopted him, not us adopting him!

My Tail of Devotion for Lady Margaret Ann

My Dear Maggie:

You were my best friend, my confidant, my sanity. You wouldn't leave my side when I was ill or when I cried. You were born exactly three years after I lost my father. How he would have loved you!!! Your father put up with all those times you bugged him, hanging on to his beard, trying to get him to play, comforting him. Then, he had to leave, go to the Rainbow Bridge with all the other loved babies. You were lost--you'd never been alone before.

If there is such a thing as a mega alpha-dog--you were it. You challenged anything from a Yorkie to a Doberman! You did not play well with others--giving me a very difficult time in finding you a new brother or sister--no one was good enough for you, but you allowed Frasier, who no longer had a home, to come into your life and to comfort you. Then, Sundance needed a home, and you gladly welcomed him. How Frasier missed you when you were gone somewhere with me--sitting at the door until you came home.

You loved me so intensely--giving me love that no human, other than my father and mother, could give me. There was no other dog with more devotion for his/her owner than you. You loved and watched over my Mother--always making sure she knew you were there if she needed you.

God gives us such beautiful creatures to fill our lives--but it seems He just wants you to stay here for a very short time. He began calling you home a few weeks before your 13th birthday. I prayed everyday for Him not to take you; for you to get better--"Just a couple of more years, please!" I don't think He heard me. You became so ill, but you hung in there--walking that prissy walk, and bouncing around, 'til you just became so tired that you couldn't do anymore. It was time to let you go--you tried so hard to live--to no avail.

I could not be so selfish to keep someone who had given me so much! I saw you in pain, and I couldn't stand it anymore. I was with you to the end--I hope you knew how much I loved you, and that I was there until you crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.

How wonderful it must have been for you--seeing your father again--your sisters and brothers!!! No more pain, running and playing, sunning yourself. Your legs worked again--you were not ever hungry again--you could breathe with no pain, and you are waiting.

It was so hard--it is still very hard. I miss you so much, I still cry and cry and cry. I miss your little body in the bed with me--greeting me the minute I walked in the door. Why, why couldn't God have given us more time with you.

I don't know how, but you must have known that I was grieving myself to oblivion--never wanting another dog--to never experience the depth of pain that I felt!! Frasier missed you--he looked and looked and looked. He said goodbye to you when I placed your empty vessel in the ground. He was so depressed.

Knowing that, you seemed to guide me to Georgie! All he wanted was to get out of that cage. He didn't know what grass felt like--didn't know what it was to be loved!! He is so appreciative. I feel I would never have found him if you had not pushed me so!

Georgie is a delight. Even though he is not you, he has some of you in him--your spirit, his devilishness! He is doing well, and now Frasier is enduring what your father did when you were little--but Frasier is not complaining. Frasier is running and playing again, not all alone.

Thank you, Maggie, thank you God. I have known such unconditional love that I'm not sure I'll ever have again. You were 1 in a million--never to be duplicated.

Have fun with your father and your family--enjoy yourself--Frasier, Georgie, Sundance, and I will see you soon!!!! I hope you remember me as I will never, in my life, ever forget you.

I love you, and I miss you!!!!!
