Y'all......mom is being totally overwhelmed with life. There is no reason whats-so-ever fur her to not be bloggin' fur us EVERY DAY. She has list of excuses 87 miles long and fur the luv of Milk Bones we thinks day is all dumb!
Anyhoos...... Here is what Niles tinks of our dogatary and her lack of blogging skills....
Dat is his disapprovin' look....
and dis is me refusing to get out of da bed until she proves her bloggin' worth agains!
Plus, it's a tad chilly out of da covers! It's a win win fur me! BOL BOL BOL!!!
So what has we missed during moms unexplained departure from her dogatary duties?
Last night, a little after 10:00pm Maggie had her last seizure.
She went into it right after we went to bed and she was laying in between her daddy and myself.
It was different this time and we knew...so we held her and loved her while she crossed over Rainbow Bridge.
Our hearts are broken and we are sad but we rejoice with the fact that she is no longer suffering and that she lived the most amazing life that filled us with so much love and happiness.

Thank you all for the continued love, support and encouraging words during this every difficult couple of weeks. The love, prayers and many paw crosses for Maggie and for us have truly been felt and the words from the sweet comments have been such a comfort. -Higgins Mom
Maggie had a horrible seizure this morning, one dat she had trouble recovering from. About 20 minutes in, mom wrapped her in Niles' cozy blanket and rushed her to da dogter.
On da way to his office, she woke up and mom was happy, butts very concerned.
Dogter did some more blood work dat came back wiff good seizure numbers, butts she has fluid dat has built up around her heart, she has an very irregular heart beat and her blood pressure is high.
Maggie is now on two more medications to help her. Dogter said that if we can't get da seizures more under control, her heart fluid reduced and her blood pressure better dat she could have a seizure that she will not survive.
Dis is all very concerning to mom beclaws mom can't fix dis and she is feeling very helpless. We is all in wait and pray mode fur Maggie.
Da Good - - - Maggie's blood work showed improved numbers wiff her seizures
Da Bad - - - She is still having seizures (butts not as bad) and high blood pressure
Her Heart - - - Fluid build up and irregular heart beat
Dat is all we nose fur now!
Mom does say fur such a sick little doggie she is still a cutie!!!!
Sorry fur the lack of updates and total absence from Blogville. Mom has had a ruff week and we's all nose when moms have ruff weeks our bloggies suffer!
Maggie is still hanging in there. She has very good days and very bad days and mom said sometime she feel like she running a hospice center on Maggie's bad days and on Maggie's good days she is just a nurse fur a demanding patient.
We's has been mostly good so we's doesn't stress Mom out any more, but come on....there is just so many days in a row that we can behave, especially fur Niles and Zoe!!
Maggie goes back to da dogter on Friday so we's should nose more then!
Today, we is all snug in our beds beclaws last night it gots very cold and our house lost water and then da weather man said dat snow is coming in tonight, so we just may stay under the covers until it melts! BOL!!!
Our little Maggie was shown some improvements with her last big seizure being Saturday night, Yay!
She is still struggling to stand and walk and to be honest we are not sure if now that is the medications that she is currently on are side effect from having so many seizures in a small amount of time.
Right now were are just going hour by hour, doing what we can and monitoring her. We are very hopeful and pray that the coming week the medications will do what needs to be done and we can get her back to old self and rule out a brain tumor!
I wanted to thank y'all for the outpouring of love and positive messages that we have received! During this tough time we can count on our wonderful blogging friends to lift us up and know that we are being thought of, prayed for and encouraged in our time of sadness and helplessness!
Thank you so much!!
Hopefully Higgins will resume his regular blogging shenanigans tomorrow as Maggie continues to improve!!! :)
Yesterday, at da groomers after Maggie was waterboarded, and while da groomer was giving her a haircut, she had a seizure. After dad got her home, she had several more and woke up dis morning to one and several more befure mom and dad could get her to da dogter.
Da dogter stuck things where day should not be stucked and said dat her temperature was low. Then he did some blood work which showed her white blood count elevated, her kidney funshions low and said da she could either have a really bad infection in her brain or a brain tumor.
He put her on some medications and said dat the furst three days are key. If she continues to have seizures over da next two week it possibly is beclaws it's a brain tumor.
Mom is a nervous wreck and crying. Maggie doesn't feel good and me, the Mantastic Higgins and bratty Brother Niles, has been extra nice to Maggie. Zoe even let her get in her big bed without a fuss!
Please cross your paws fur Maggie and say a little prayer. She is so weak and beclaws of how many seizures she has had, she is very sore and can't stand very good on her on.
