Maggie’s new ride

One of my aunt’s is staying with me tonight, she lives in Chico and came down to have Thanksgiving with the family (21 people yesterday at my parent’s house!!).  She is recovering from a stroke suffered last spring.  I had a pretty invasive knee surgery last winter so we have been re-hab buddies.  Last spring we both set a goal to be able to walk farther than a ten year old, 3 legged pug!!  It took me six months but I finally was able to walk farther than Mag last summer.  It took my aunt a little longer- but she got there today!!

This afternoon we drove over to the park with the dogs.  My aunt still uses her walker on longer walks, and it allows her to do her other leg exercises during her stroll.  Well Maggie heard and saw the wheels and I think she thought it was her stroller!! So she kept sitting down by the wheels (which is how she tells me she wants to ride in the stroller).  So we put Maggie on the seat of the walker- and she was happy as can be.  My aunt pushed her all around the park and finally met the rehab goal of walking farther than a now 10.5 year old, 3 legged pug!

Of course I didn’t have my camera at the park, but we took a picture in the driveway when we got home.

Maggie was a little black pug born in 1999. On September 7, 2006 she lost her left rear leg to a mast cell tumor. Because of lymph node involvement Maggie went through a 6 month chemo regimen. She was given 6 to 9 months after her amp, but she beat mast cell cancer! In the winter of 2010 things started to slide; in the course of about 2 months she had 2 MCTs removed, was diagnosed with incontinence and kidney failure, and then the big blow- oral melanoma. She lived her carefree tri-pug life until she crossed over on June 2, 2010.
