Here is a picture of my family's dog, Maggie, when she was just a pup. My sisters and I grew up with her and she is present in so many of our childhood memories. She loved eating all our "little girl" items, like our tubes of Lipsmacker chapstick, and our lacy little socks. And when I say "eat," I truly mean eat. She would just swallow them whole!
My parents had to have her put to sleep on Monday afternoon; she was almost 17 years old, and not doing well at all. I was lucky enough to be able to say goodbye to her that morning. We all loved her so very much and will miss her so greatly. It is so hard to say goodbye to beloved pets. We love you, Maggie!
