Wow Christine! Your visit made my day, it’s so nice to see you here. What I would have given to see Annie watching and listening to Jerry. I’m sure Franklin was chiming in from up above!

Thank you for the lovely note. Yes we had a ball, and Jerry was with me every step of the way as usual 🙂

Nine years ago today TriPug Maggie crossed the bridge.  I can’t believe how much time has passed, it seems still like it just happened.  But now the memories are all good, she still inspires me everyday.

This picture was taken just 3 days before she crossed, that’s Mag in front and Tani behind her.  I had just put them in my truck after an outing at the park.

Multum in Parvo. 

The motto of the Pug and it means “a lot in a little”.  Sure sounds like Maggie!

Awwww wow Karen I just saw this. What a sweet picture. Has it really been that long?! 

Maggie has a big presence in a tiny package. It was such an honor to know her. She will always be a treasured part of this community.

Even as an Angel, Maggie still touches countless numbers of lives and makes them better.  So does her mama. Thinking of you. 9 years sounds like a long time but in reality it goes quickly!

Ditto Jerry and Jackie.

And as awful as it is that you had to be here, Maggie knew what she was doing when she brought you here.  All about “the greater good” and making something pawsitive out of something bad…stuff like that😎    Maggie’s story is one of hope, that’s  for sure. 

This site would not be as effective  as it is without  your input, knowledge and Pug humor!

Sweeet pictures 💖

Jerry Day continues  every moment of EVERY day here!  Lives extended, lives saved,  all because of Jerry and the hoomans he chose to be his  eternal partners.  Jerry’s purpose perfectly aligned with yours.  Of course, not a  coincidence at all!  

WE LOVE YOU JERRY!!!💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜

It’s been a year since we lost our dear Riley.  I miss her terribly, and I’m sure I always will.  She had a good quality of life after her amputation, and lived 19 months as a tripod.  In retrospect, it was the right decision for her.  Although her cancer never returned, realistically, fourteen years was a decent life span for a larger dog.  It just wasn’t enough.  Double that wouldn’t have been enough, though.  

I suppose that I will note the anniversary of losing her every year.  Does anybody ever forget?  This has been a very rough year.  Losing your second favorite person in the world – who wasn’t even a person – has been just as hard as I thought it would be.  There’s no getting over a loss of this magnitude, it just dulls a little.

I am grateful to this website for all the information and support provided when I need it .  Thanks to all.

Never forget.  It’s embedded in your heart as are our Angels.  I guess the way i look at it is… it was worth the ride.  Our heart furbabies will be there forever.  A love like that is something a lot don’t get to experience. 

Never forgotten. 

Happy Angelversary Riley💖💖💖

Nope, at least not fur us. There is a hole in our heart that can never be filled, but our gratitude for Jerry’s presence in our life is greater than our grief at this point in time. I think that’s probably a good goal over time.

I’m sorry about the bittersweet anniversary. It’s a tough one. (((hugs))))

Through your family here, Riley will ALWAYS be remembered.  Additionally we will ALWAYS celebrate  the various gifts of hope and inspawration  she graced us with.

Riley showed us that senior dawgs can still live a vital and happy life on three.  Of course, being so well .loved and so beautifully  cared for contributed to her joy and longevity.

Yes I deedy, we  learned a lot from Riley, and her hooman.  One thing I remembered  was your golden paste with tumeric amd sll rhe ways you helped to support Riley’s health.

I’m  glad you came back to help us celebrate  Riley with you.  She touched us all, and continues to do so.
