We lost our Sweet Girl – Maggie March 18, 2000 – July 7, 2011

My heart feels like someone reached in a ripped it out of my chest.  Today we lost our yellow lab, Maggie.  Over the past couple months she has not been herself.  We took her in today to have some x-rays taken.  A huge mass was found in her abdomen and x-rays also revealed that her hips were very, very bad.  Over the past couple days, she needed assistance even in walking.  It was time to let her go.

I’m sure she is running like the mad man she used to be, like she did before all her ailments, through the woods, with the biggest stick she can find, in her mouth. 

Run free my sweet baby girl..get those nasty squirrels.


  1. Always feel sad to read these kinds of things.
    This is heartbreaking.
    Maggie had a good life. You can take comfort in that.

  2. Having just lost two of our dogs a couple months ago I understand how you are feeling right now. I know the pain, the emptiness, the loneliness. You have a hole in your heart that feels unrepairable. It is so sad to lose our best of ever friends. Nothing I can say will ease your pain but know that we here at the Bayfield Bunch understand & are thinking of you in these sad times.

  3. So sad to hear about you losing Maggie. We've lost a few pups too and know what it feels like. The only remedy is time. After a while, even though it still hurts a bit, I realize what a great life our pets had with us and how lucky both of us were to have each other.

  4. So sorry to hear of your loss, now that we have a dog, I have some idea of how difficult your loss is.

  5. My heart goes out to you. It is so sad to lose a fur kid. I am thinking of you and know that Maggie will be in your hearts forever.

  6. We agree, it does feel like your heart has been ripped out! We lost our lab and we still feel lost without her. Your Maggie looked so much like our Pearl. I am so sorry!!

  7. So sad. Our Whiskey is 15 years old, so we know that her time is coming as well. Not looking forward to the day. Feeling for you.

  8. We lost our 11yr.old yellow lab Boomer in 2008 when being in Denver,CO. We thought we'd never be happy again, even though we are still having our, our dear sweetheart Molly. I never saw my wife crying so much and it hit me too. And yes it was cancer and it was spreading very aggressively.
    So we feel with you every inch of the way.
