Maggie Mae
8/1/2005 - 6/23/2020Maggie Mae was in my life for 15 years. She was my first puppy. I am so happy I had the chance to love her for so long. Maggie Mae honestly is the reason why I kept going when I was dealing with depression. I knew I had to keep going for her. She was with me through some sad times but also there were so, so many happy times!
One of my favorite memories is just us snuggling on the couch together her sleeping either in front of me or snuggled behind my legs. I also remember waking up to her and she was completely up against my back and I would roll over and she would put her head on my neck. It was the best way to wake up. As a puppy she loved to go to the dog park and would just run and run. That is how I picture her now over the rainbow bridge just running and running. After Maggie would eat her food she would always go to the carpet and roll around on her back and be her frisky self. Her last year of her life she was not able to do that due to her arthritis in her hips. I know she is rolling around on her back now so happy. She also loved her grandma who helped take care of her when I was at work.

Making the decision to help her transition was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. But she loved me for so long and did so much for me I had to help her. She was in pain and did not have a quality of life. Maggie Mae did what she was supposed to do, she loved me and got me to a place in my life where I am doing so much better. She knew I was good so she could go.
I was so lucky in that I got to plan how she passed. I was able to take amazing pictures of her and I in the days leading up. I was able to hang up her puppy pictures and create a place in my home where she would be comfortable and not scared. The day I said goodbye she had a breakfast sandwich and ice cream. She also had bacon, hamburger, and chicken. While she was being given medicine, I got to read her a letter telling her how much I loved her. I got to hold her as she passed so peacefully.
The grief I felt was like no other. But the grief was so big because the love so, so big.
Dr. Kali was so amazing. She was full of love and so caring that I knew my Maggie was in good hands. Dr. Kali has the biggest heart and even though the day was so hard her presence of caring made it so much more peaceful. I will never forget her and how wonderful she was!!
