Let the tears flow

My Mom reads the oddest things and today on this especially sad day she remembered a passage from a book about a particular African tribe that believes when someone dies they are carried to the great resting place in a canoe and that everyone in the tribe must cry freely so that their tears become a river on which the canoe travels. Today our Dog with Blogs tribe must cry freely to help our dearest friend Miss Maggie on her travels to and across the rainbow bridge.

We thought a wonderful tribute to our dear friend would be to post about a particular memory (or post) about her that you remember. For us - we will always remember her entering our Pee-mail contest where we asked for doggies to send pics of themselves "checking" out pee-mail in their neighborhood. Miss Maggie took matters into her own paws though and decided it would be better to leave some pee-mail ! We loved it and Miss Maggie and Mitch actually won that contest and got their very own fire hydrant for their wonderful garden. We know that right now Miss Maggie is missing her Mom and Dad and her brother Mitch as much as they are missing her - but we also know she is running happily and checking all the pee-mail with so many of her dear friends right now in Rainbow land. Please stop by Maggie and Mitch's page and leave them some hugs and love.

In Memory of the Beautiful Maggie - our Pee-Mail Queen.



  1. Believe it or not, our mom is laughing through her tears.
    You guys are the best! You are such special friends. We have so many beautiful gifts from you throughout our house and garden. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    Mitch, angel Maggie and Sue

  2. Awwww...I remember that! Such a good girl Miss Maggie was. They are going to miss her terribly. So hard, but aren't we glad we have our dogs in our lives, even if it inevitably ends like this?

  3. Our hearts broke when we heard that beautiful Maggie has left us but we are sure she is running and playing happily at the Rainbow Bridge now.

    Our prayers and thoughts are with her family and Mitch too.

  4. We all have a very special spot in our hearts for sweet Maggie. We are very sad to see that she has crossed the bridge. Soft woos and gentle hugs to her family from all of us.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  5. So very sorry to hear about Maggie. Thinking of her family.

  6. Oh no, we didn't know about Maggie. We will visit right now - our human has tears to add to the river!
    We are sure Maggie will have many dog blog friends waiting for her at Rainbow Bridge.

  7. this was before our time in Blog Land, but it brought a big smile to our faces!

  8. I am so sad! I was just visiting their blog yesterday, trying to catch up for the week...oh so sad....

    Yes she is romping and playing over the rainbow bridge...knowing how loved she was will ease the goodbye to her loved ones at home.

  9. This brought a smile to our faces, through the tears. We havn't know Miss Maggie and Mitch long but we fell in love with them both the first time we met.

  10. Oh my, I was just on my way to Maggie and Mitch's blog. This is just heartbreaking even though I know that Maggie is running and playing just as she did as a little pup. I feel bad for her sweet Mitch and her family. Blessings to you to!


Thank you for woofing at us - we read each and every one of them
