maggie

Friends and patrons of the Pet Museum,

Today I would like to pay tribute to a lovely little Cairn Terrier who has gone across the Rainbow Bridge. Maggie was 14 and the light of my friend Jill's life, but during this past week she began to falter, and Jill knew she had to let her go.

Here's a pageful of Maggie and her adventures. Here is Maggie and her partner in cairncrime Geordie's homepage.

Jill always wrote that if her dogs taught her one thing, it's:

"Do what you love, the muddy will follow."
Words I need to hear often. But then, Maggie always was one of the best therapists.

Please, would you send a loving thought to my friend and wish a sweet journey to Maggie?

Heartfelt thanks for your kind words about my Maggie. The tears still scald-- even as the days pass and I think I've run them dry. I wanted to post her eulogy on my (dormant) blog, but I'm just not ready.

Yesterday I received a beautiful box of her ashes which I cannot open.

Perhaps, like your Zozo, she will reassure me.
