My extended Family

Today is Thursday 19th November.

I really don’t know how to start my post today as I am overwhelmed by emotion, and feeling particularly tearful today.

Many of you have read Jen’s tribute I reblogged yesterday and also Melanie’s which I reblogged the day before. The outpouring of love, support and mutual loss has been phenomenal, and I have never known anything like it.

So many of you have lost your fur babies this year, and I felt your loss for each and every one. I knew Maggie was loved, but I never appreciated until now just how much, or by how many.
She was a people magnet, hence her name Maggie, but that magnetism has stretched worldwide, in fact knew no borders, and I know there are many of you reading this who are feeling the pain and emptiness, as much as we are.

There are pictures and stories as well as poems in my blog about her. She is everywhere and I will continue to write about her. You’ll see her every time I ‘like’ one of your posts, or leave a comment. She was as much your dog by proxy as she was ours in reality.
And that is what family is all about. Thank you all.

Keep safe everyone

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    She was a delight to read about – especially since my dog had passed away several years ago…
