Our Precious Magnolia

February 2, 2009 by  

You never know what to expect. Live each day to its fullest. Today, I answered the phone and heard my mother weaping. I could hardly make out what she was saying, but I knew something was drastically wrong. My mom took Maggie Moo, as I call her, to the vet for a routine teeth cleaning — the first time in her nearly 10 years on earth. It was the right thing to do… small dogs, especially, need their teeth cleaned. But Maggie suffered cardiac arrest during the procedure and they couldn’t revive her. Our Precious Magnolia, her given name, died today. She was a great dog, so cute. She will be missed greatly. I put together this video of pictures that my mom and I have taken of Maggie over the past few years as a tribute to her. She brought joy to my family, and I know she passed knowing how much she was loved.

My thoughts and prayers are with my mom and dad as we all cope with the loss of a four-legged family member. Our Precious Magnolia.
