Maggie Crossed Over The Bridge

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 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

  5. We are so sorry for your loss, run free sweet Maggie...

  6. I'm so heartbroken to be hearing this. At least Maggie chose to leave on her own terms and not leave the decision to you. She is in a better place and no longer will have to fight the "S" monster. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Run free again, Sweetie.

  7. Oh, no! I'm so very sad you lost your sweet Maggie. How nice that she got to pass right there in your loving hug. Sending lots of healing vibes and warm thought to all of you. I'm so sorry.

  10. I am so very sorry. Maggie was the sweetest little dog and we will miss her adorable fluffy little face.
    She had a wonderful life with you all and always looked so happy.
    Run free little one.

I know you, your mom and your whole family must be feeling such a BIG loss for that special girl right now. All I can say is I am glad that it happened while everyone was home so Maggie could feel the love around her at the end.

  20. We are so sorry for the loss of your Maggie. It seems like so many furries are leaving lately. :( A warm hug, purrs and paw taps of comfort.

  21. I am so deeply sorry. This is my first visit but I hope to keep coming around. It is so hard to say goodbye to one who you love so much.

  22. Auntie Trice Momma is still so sad that we both had too loose Sisser's this month :'( Atleast they has each other at the bridge! I am sure Geejahwah met up with Magpie and they are playing and running free in puppy heaven and watching over us!!

  23. Dearest Higgie and your Mommy and Daddy,

    Our Mommy's comment got eaten up by blogger when she wrote it before and today while we were looking at past pics of Maggie she noticed it wasn't there.

    She lost her first dog Samantha at the age Maggie was in 2005 when she adopted Mona and became a volunteer for dachshund rescue. Mommy says she's sure they are the best of friends by now and are both watching us all from the bridge, pain free and happy along with Angel Weenie.

    You are all our thoughts and prayers.

    God bless..... Mommy's girls and Mommy too
