25 Dec

I wanted a dog for years. We searched for the perfect one at dog kennels, breeders, and more. When one of our friends said she had to give up her 1 year old golden retriever, we found it was the best opportunity to welcome a new member to our family.

She had the most gorgeous brown, almost red, coat. Maggie loved everyone she met. We always joked that if someone broke into our house, she’d probably greet them with a wagging tail and smile.

She absolutely loved the outdoors, and when it snowed she went crazy.

She was the perfect mix of an energetic, and playful dog–

but she was also so calm, sweet, and the perfect pillow.

Maggie never minded when we played games with her, and made her sit still for countless pictures. Her patience was impressive.

Maggie brought us so much joy over the past 8 years. She watched over us,

gave us love,

and never failed to make us laugh.

Thank you Maggie, for the best eight years and for all the love you gave to us. You always made guests feel welcome, and we felt safe knowing you were here. You are going to be missed so incredibly much, but we are happy to know you are in a better place and not in pain. You left us suddenly, but we knew it was the right time. We all love you so much and will see you again someday.

    Maggie, you will always be in my heart. I will never forget the countless times I went running with you. You pulled me up hills and you dragged me when I though I could not finish my run. You were my baby. I could close my eyes and still feel the softness of your beautiful fur.

    I remember when we would come through the front door, you always came to me first. You came to mama. You knew how much I loved you.

    Maggie, thank you for all the love you gave us. You were so precious.

    I will always remember you Maggie. All my love,

    Carmen, such a beautiful story! Makes me so sad when we lose one of our best friends. They are such a gift from God. I wish for you peace in knowing that she is in the most wonderful place waiting for you to join her someday.
    Love, gina

    I was soooo sad to hear of the sudden illness of your (and so many others) precious Maggie…she was such a beauty and such a loving watchful dog. I know she was a wise and beloved member of your special family. She will be greatly missed by all and her memory will stay fresh in our minds. She was a Barr through and through…yes…your baby! We love our dog “Wilson” so much, and I know that we would and will be sad the day he leaves our family…but we also know that Maggie will be waiting for him that eternal dog heaven above! WE are thinking about you all…much love to you.
    Becky and Jordan and family
