A Decade Ago

September 7th, 2016 · 9 Comments · Uncategorized

10 years ago today I was waiting for the call from the surgeon to let me know that Maggie was alright.  A week earlier my vet had looked at the lump in Mag’s knee and said the word…amputation. Referrals, consultations, second opinions. Surgeons and oncologists.  Input from family and friends.  “It’s just a dog”, “It […]

One Year Later

June 2nd, 2011 · 10 Comments · Uncategorized

Somehow a year has passed since I had to let Tri-Pug Maggie go, I can’t believe it. Sometimes it seems like so long ago, and at other times it seems like just yesterday she was sitting on my lap. It has been a tough year for family and friends- illnesses and injuries in two, three […]

Meeting New Friends

February 13th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

The Nor Cal Tripawds crew finally got together again on Saturday February 12th at the dog park in Mill Valley California.  It was a spectacular day- clear, sunny and unseasonably warm.   It has been several months since we have been able to meet up, and this time we got to welcome two new tripawds.  […]

Moving Forward

October 2nd, 2010 · 11 Comments · Uncategorized

Today marks four months since Maggie passed.  The odd thing is that I didn’t even think about it until I was writing a post to another person who is grieving the recent passing of their dog.  I take that as a sign that I am moving forward.  I still think of Mag everyday, it’s impossible […]

The Mag Tag

September 3rd, 2010 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Here we are, 3 months without Maggie, and they have at times been very difficult months for me.  Not because she is gone, but because life sometimes just deals you and your family and friends some tough cards.  I miss her every day- but I have been fortunate enough to find a way to apply […]

Dog Heaven

I got a package in the mail today from Maggie’s Oncology Vet Hospital,  called Bay Area Veterinary Specialists or BAVS.  Mag had her amp surgery there and our Oncologist is there, Dr. Cecile Siedlecki. I opened the package and found this book: It is a book written to help children understand and cope with the […]

The Pug Girls

June 23rd, 2010 · 8 Comments · Uncategorized

Today Tani turns 10, the first birthday she will celebrate without her big sister.  We reached the end of the Pug Girls era when I  let Mag go 3 weeks ago today. On Maggie’s 11th birthday in March I started a post with pictures of Mag’s puppy hood called ‘Maggie- the early years‘  which took […]

Learning Tani

June 16th, 2010 · 11 Comments · Uncategorized

This is Maggie’s little sister Tani: Tani is almost 10 years old, and is missing her big sister. We said good bye to Maggie two weeks ago and marked the occasion with a trip to the vet.  Just routine stuff, we got a little behind on Tani’s vaccinations over the past three months. I am […]

Normal

June 8th, 2010 · 13 Comments · Uncategorized

Periodically over the years during one dog crisis or another I found myself wishing that things would just get back to normal.  But what is normal? It wasn’t until the morning after I let Maggie go that I realized how involved and time consuming our normal had become.  That morning it took me just 10 […]

Missing Maggie

June 7th, 2010 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Now I have decided that a separate page is not the place to post about missing Maggie, I will do it here on her main page.  Here is what I wrote a couple of days ago: I let Maggie go three days ago on Wednesday June 2, 2010.  I have been thinking about updating her […]
