Mama’s, Mags, Maggie, tuna noodle casseroleee’ or Piggy Dog…It didn’t
matter what we called her, she came. She was brought home on a wintery day
to our house from the local “zoo”-or so the pet shop called itself. On the
way home we found that the less than 1lb puppy was infested with fleas. We
didn’t care. We had begged and begged for this little thing for days and
when we finally got her, all we could do was love her, fleas and all. We had
Dobermans, not Poodle/Chihuahua mixes, but she fit in on the farm as well as
any of the other animals we brought home to love.

Maggie (properly named) appeared to us as one of the “Simpson’s” with her
wavy curls and spunky attitude. She took on the best, she would stare down
the cows, run around the hay fields, she even assisted with moving
irrigation pipes, and she had a sense of being “the protector” as our guard
dog (out ruling the Dobies). She would stand shoulder to shoulder or
shoulder to foot with the Dobermans in protecting us. Maggie loved Sebastian
or Sabby the cat and would have one on one wrestling matches, jumping around
to provoke him. One of the cats had kittens once, and Maggie took it upon
herself to carry them around. On accident she broke one of the kittens neck.
That little dog was so very sad. Maggie was a lover, she played to her
hearts content. The most enjoyable experience of Maggie was in the snow.
Maggie would bounce on all fours like the deer, root in the snow like a pig
in the mud and come “barking” at the door looking like a snowman. Snow balls
covering her 3-inch tall legs. Maggie was so many things that we could not
even express in a short paragraph all she was to us. Maggie was a wonderful
and specially made little addition to our family and lives. During the last
days of Maggie’s life she became a little senile and blind, and even in that
state, she would still bring out her best with things that excited her. She
was a joy, she was an absolute joy to have and we are at a loss with out
her. Maggie thank you for touching our lives for 16 plus years and allowing
us to experience such a wonderful little spirit. We will ALWAYS love you and
you will ALWAYS be remembered and missed. Love you forever and ever: Mom,
Dad, Ash, Lish, and Bea.
