one year ago today.

One year ago today we said a very sad good-bye to our sweet Maggie. I can still recall so many details of that day, and saying my tearful good-bye to her in the car. If I let myself, I can be transported back to that day to the point of feeling it all over again. Tears and all. I read my posts from that day and the following Monday and was almost in tears. She now takes her place by the back door, in the form of a rock. Yes, a memorial rock with her ashes inside. Max calls it the Maggie Rock. This also (almost) marks the six months that we've had sweet Sammy Sue in our lives. The six months without a dog in the house, while cleaner and easier, were much lonelier. Eric and I would both agree that Sammy is Maggie Jr. - just as sweet as sweet can be. 
She is gone, but she is not forgotten.

your pets never leave you. I still can remember my childhood pets with fondness bc they mark chapters of my life.
Hugs for you while you miss your Maggie.

That photo says it all. I have nothing really to add or say other than I can't losing such a beloved pet. I know a heart doesn't recover fully or quickly from that. (((hugs)))
