Maggie, my one and only schmoopie!
by Maggie's mom, Regina
Maggie was a healer and helped a lot of people in various ways, moreso then other humans could. While my grandmother was housebound, Maggie would spend many days by her side, bringing her companionship and also a sense of independence, since she was able to care for Maggie in a way that she couldn't do for herself. When my mother was going through a tough time, Maggie was always there for her and greeted her with a warm welcome, letting her know she was always a part of our household.
Maggie was a chronic spooner and hopped alongside many of my friends while they slept and kept them warm. She became my motivational coach and helped me train for a marathon, running with me every day for months on end. She helped others work through their grief when they too lost someone close to their hearts or simply felt alone in the world.
Over the past year I worked an excessive number of hours at work, which depleted me of energy and countless hours of my personal life. Despite my late hours Maggie was always at home, waiting patiently for me to arrive to go on our late hour walks followed by a little belly rubbing and ball playing.
I only wish that I didn't allow myself to be consumed by my career and made more time to take my pup out, doing the things she loved like swimming, hiking, or going around visiting family and friends. She was a true people dog and had the best personality in the world. Many hearts have sobbed and broken in her illness and final passing.
I'll forever miss my little munchkin, schmoops, Magpie....
