    A dog's life is all too short. Here is a place to post pictures or memories of old friends. Because sharing often helps.

    This is my Maggie when she was a little older than Maui is now at the Beach almost 13 years ago. We loved her so, love her still, miss her always and she remains in our hearts .....

    She looked a darling and you missing her so much brought tears to my eyes. She was so loved and would have had the perfect life; dogs' lives are so shorter than ours, but a dog's life well lived is worth the grief we have to suffer. xx

    Thank you all for your kind words. Someone once told me to know love is to also have known loss .... I think that is true. We will always love and miss Maggie .... she was one of a kind. When she left this world we received so many cards and visits from friends ..... everyone loved Maggie it seemed. We hesitated in getting another dog, but when I found the Breeder I eventually got Maui from, I was reading her blog and it seemed she had lost her beloved Indy just the day before we had to let Maggie go. An instant bond developed and I knew we had to go ahead. Maui is a sweetheart and somehow I think Maggie would approve. But, when Maggie left, she took a piece of our hearts, which only well loved dogs can do. Play happily over that Rainbow Bridge Mags .... we love you and miss you! :)

    Thank you for sharing your story about Maggie. You can tell she was a beautiful and beloved girl. :heart:

    Your story about how you found Maui is also inspirational... gives me hope I will eventually get out of my indecisive funk and find my special pup.

    It's been very comforting reading your lovely posts on this site.. Sometimes only a doggy person can understand the pain and overwhelming grief that come with losing a best furry friend.. My Rocky passed only yesterday, he was taken ill on Friday having ingested something poisonous.. We couldn't find out what it was which I think makes it all the harder to bare.. He was only 8 years old and the speed in which it took him was so horrendous.. I loved him so much.. At the moment when surrounded by all his things it feels very hard to imagine life without him around..

    My beloved Riddick has been gone two years.

    I miss him every single day. His name is still on the food list with the other dogs...
    I found a wonderful local artist who paints pet portraits, and when I saw her other work I knew a Riddick portrait inspired by the movie character he was named after, with his Doggles on his head, would be right up her alley.
    And I love it! She captured my baby boy so beautifully.
