Happy Trails Maggie

I've been trying to stay away from this old computer, and get a life. I don't know what else to say? ........ But Maggie deserves this post!
Maggie, (my mom's dog) passed away sometime between 9:30 last Thursday night and daylight Friday morning (7/29/07). We can only hope it was a peaceful death in her sleep. Her best buddy Lulu was at her her side all night and didn't even get out of their bed until mom went to rouse them that morning.

Mom said she took them out around 9:30 to potty, and then they crawled in their bed for the night. Then mom found Lulu snuggled up to Maggies cold little body the next morning.
Mom is handling it pretty well, except that Lulu is consantly searching the house for her little buddy. Mom said she wonders if Lulu is taking it harder than she is?

I always think of Rod Stewart's song "Maggie May" when I think of Maggie. Of course I would have to change a lot of the words to fit our Maggie!

My ex wife knew some old redneck farmer back in 2000 who had Maggie in a pen with about a dozen or more bulldogs, and said he was looking for a home for her.My mom already had Lulu back then and we asked her if Lulu needed a buddy?
We're not sure of Maggies age, but she wasn't no spring chicken. The vet thinks she was way over 10 years old at her last check up.

She was a happy and very friendly little gal and will be missed dearly!

Lulu is gonna borrow Rod's lyrics mixed with mine, and this is from Lulu to Maggie!

"Wake up maggie I think I got something to say to you
Its late september and I really should be back at obedience school
I know I keep you amused but I feel Im being used
Oh maggie I think I've pooped on the floor
You lured me away from home just so you could steal my bone
You stole my heart and thats what really hurt
The morning sun when its in your face really shows your age
But that dont worry me none in my eyes youre everything
I laughed at all of your jokes my love you didnt need to coax
Oh, maggie I think I've pooped on the floor
You lured me away from home, just so you could steal my bone
You stole my bone and thats a pain I can do without
All I needed was a friend to lend a guiding hand
But you turned into a humper and Mother what a humper, you wore me out
All you did was wreck my bed
And in the morning kick me in the head
Oh maggie I think I've pooped on the floor
You lured me away from home , and I don't want to be alone
You stole my heart I couldnt leave you if I tried"

Thanks Chrissy
You're the best.
That first pic was Maggie in her prime. The last pic was taken this past May and it was the last picture ever taken of her. You could really see her poor little aged face on that one. She was very camera shy in her old age.
