Our sweet dear Maggie past away on Tuesday night. She had been sick for a while with lots of problems, but on Tuesday she seemed to be doing great. She started coughing and then breathing heavily after coming inside. It also sounded a little gurgley. After about a half hour she then started coughing up blood. Matt rushed her to the vet, but it was too late. Most likely she had a clot burst in her lungs or something like that. She is no longer in pain and that is what helps us to feel better.
We only had her for 2 years and 7 months, but it seemed so much longer! She was our first "baby" and she is missed terribly. I no longer have her to keep my feet warm at night, Matt doesn't have her pushing him off the bed at night, and Ruthie doesn't have Maggie to sit in the nursery on the rug as Ruthie sleeps. We don't have her rushing to the kitchen to "clean" the floor every time we drop any food and we don't have her to come home to barking as we pull into the drive way. It is so very sad. I realize she was a dog, but she was a member of our family and will be missed very very much. Here are some of our favorite pictures of Maggie over the last few years.
Here is our whole family- you can see Ruthie in the background on the right.
Here she is the past Christmas just chilling with me as I rested my pregnant body.

The day we got her- We went to just visit and see if we wanted her and we brought her home that day. This was while Maggie and I were sitting in the car while Matt went into Walmart to get her a bed and food.
