Maggie May 12-29-2004 to 5-11-2010

We decided last night after we got the call about Maggie's biopsies to let her go, she had suffered enough already.

She was down to 11 pounds from the 18 pounds she was just 1 1/2 months before. She had no quality of life, she just layed on the couch unmoving and stared at us.

I took her to the vet and held her in my arms as they injected her. She put her little head on my chest and went to sleep peacefully.

She's no longer in pain.

As she was a couple hours before crossing the bridge

As I will always remember her.

Oh, guys... I'm so very sorry! Tears are just rolling down my face. Maggie will be missed by all who knew her.

I've asked Tess and Zoe to greet her and make her feel welcome at the Bridge.

So very sorry - you and Maggie fought the good fight, you were very brave to let her go. My Daddles and Nakita will romp with her on the other side of the bridge.
Hugs to you, and to Lance.

I'm so sorry. But I am glad you decided to be with her as she went to sleep. I know how heartbreaking that is.

I'm so sorry. I know you tried so very hard and gave her every chance. I'm glad she's no longer in pain, but I know you all will miss her terribly.

I held happy when they put him to sleep. I'm sure he'll be there waiting for her so he has someone new to play with!

Oh QW, I'm so very very sorry about the loss of Maggie. There are no words to express the sorrow of her parting. Things will not be the same without her, but she is in peace.

Sending you all love and hugs and extra snuggles for Lance.

All week she has been on my mind. I've been meaning to come by and to check since your last post as I so wanted that miracle.

I'm so sorry. I always felt like I knew Maggie. My heart hurts for your entire family...
