Sad Doggie Day

We put Maggie down Tuesday.  

She'd been a little under the weather and our vet had been keeping an eye on her. We figured she'd gotten into some bad food or water.  Then Tuesday morning her health changed drastically.  It turns out she had a huge cancer in her stomach that probably took over part of her liver.  It had grown so large and she lost so much blood there wasn't really anything we could do for her. 

We spent a while in the afternoon sun with her and then said goodbye to our funny, frumpy, patient dog.

Oh, Sara, I'm so sorry for you and Rosie and Theo and Bill. I know Maggie was an integral part of your family, a loved and lovely dog with infinite patience and a playful spirit. I will miss her, Meg will miss her, and I imagine just about everyone who came into her orbit will, too. Wishing you comfort and coziness.

OMG, I'm so, so sorry for your loss. :(

I will miss her. Rest peacefully, Maggie.

That's horrible news Sara, I'm so sorry. Maggie was such a sweet girl especially to us newcomers... :(
