Friday Meanderings

Well, I screwed up and put up my Friday post on Tuesday.  That’s what I get for trying to use the iPad.

Anyhow, our sweet pooch Maggie passed away on Monday.  She was 18 years and 5 months old.  Up until two weeks ago she was still taking a 1 mile walk on most days of the week.  Then she just quit–wouldn’t go past the end of our road and that was just so she could check to see if her best doggie friend Gus was out. So we started taking her on bike or golf cart rides instead.

Maggie came to us when she was only six weeks old.  She traveled throughout the country–Terry often said that she flew more than most people!  After she started going deaf and blind, we drove with her since she couldn’t hear or see commands.

I could possibly write a whole book about her and our adventures but I thought I’d just throw some photos up of her.

Maggie liked the water this high. She could easily pull her own ball out of the water after she tossed it in.

She did not appreciate this Kodak moment with the Cooter at the Withlacoochee State Trail in Inverness.


Dogs in the Hood
Maggie REALLY didn’t like the grandkids at first. But then she figured out that once they start walking, they usually have snacks that they like to share! Besties!

Here’s Maggie in the “Thinking Rock” in Longmont.. She’s thinking as soon as she gets out of here she’s going to bite me.
