Maggie had been going downhill for awhile. She didn't have much energy, but still ate, drank, peed, pooped, and got real excited over people and food!!!

The vet told me she was getting old and her systems would eventually start shutting down.

The crazy thing was, we expected her to start getting vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite..all that kind of stuff, but it never happened.

The night before she passed away, she seemed OK, but tired. But when Cindy brought over her new beagle puppy, Maggie was extatic. She barked and pushed the other dogs out of the way and played with him. She seemed to feel fine.

The timing couldn't have been better. I was working for Dr. yoder and Dr. LeGrand that day which gave me a long lunch that started at about 11:15. Normally Iwould have just left for work by then. When I got home, I knew something was wrong because she wasn't waiting at the door for me. After a few minutes, I found her trembling under the couch.

All of a suddden, I became He-man. I threw the wrought iron coffee table across the room, and pulled apart the sectional couch and lept over it. It wasn't until I had been crouching there for a few mintes talking to her that I realized that I had the couch resting on my back.

I decided I needed to move her, so I picked her up and moved her to her bed. She laid there for about a half hour before she finally died. I was able to get ahold of Ryan, so he made it home in time to be with me, and we had her buried before I had to go back to work. I said a little prayer with her because I knew I had to go back to work. I prayed that it would all be over with before I had to leave. I just couldn't leave her there......And within about two or three minutes, it was all over with.

I cried like a baby......

She is soooooooooo cute in her picture, I just love both pics.

We are so Sorry your baby has passed.

I know it hurts to lose a pet who is really your baby My first EVER pet was Belle (a black cat).

This is after we had the girls they were about 5 and 6 at the time and Belle was MY baby, I cried so hard I just could help myself.

When we told the girls they asked “when can we get another pet”. Just like any other kid would do.

Now we have Sophie and she IS my baby. Brent hates it that I baby her, that why I tell him My girls aren't babies anymore so I baby Sophie.

I didn't think Maggie was that old. Poor little ol girl. At least she had a wonderful life once she came into your home. Sweet little baby girl.

Y'know, this don't make it any better fer ya, but, maybe GOD just had too many rats running around Heaven and needed help taking care of....
