Maggie made us laugh with her rhinocerous like canter. She would throw herself on her back mid stride and roll around with feet flailing in the air. She wiped her eyes and mouth on my suit pants and sneezed in our faces. All of these things just made us love her more.
Approximately four to five weeks ago, she was found to have several egg sized tumors in her lungs. She became a very picky eater but she still loved to go outside and run around in typical Maggie fashion. I took this as a good sign but one day she just seemed to be in pain and I promised that I would never let her suffer. After all the love she had given to me and Jonas, I had to offer her the same respect and let her go with dignity. On November 20th, 2009, we said good-bye to our baby one last time. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I would give anything to have her back in my lap. Despite the pain, and through the tears, I am eternally grateful to Crystal, boxer rescue and especially to Maggie for the very best friend a girl could have. She will forever be in my heart. I love you dearly my angel Maggie.
