Maggie’s Rose

It’s hard to believe that it’s almost a year since we lost Maggie.
It’s been a long year and we still miss her terribly.

These photos were taken in February 2019, just after her 14th birthday.  The one on the left is the one we had done on canvas and is hanging up in the lounge with Barney and Kizzy.

We bought a white Iceberg rose bush in her memory and were thrilled when it bloomed in its first year. It has continued to blossom all year and the other day we noticed yet another flurry of buds.
This morning when I pulled back the curtains, three roses were standing proud and I took these pictures this afternoon.
So beautiful, just like she was.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

  1. The roses are absolutely beautiful, and I can’t believe it’s been almost a year. Wow!

  2. I understand. The 20th was Rumpy’s birthday and I barely moved save to work.

    I used to buy rose bushes as memorial gifts for friends who lost family members… I stopped when I was told that “no one does that any more” I’m thinking I should start again….

    • We were given our pink Ancient Mariner as a house warming gift and the red In Loving Memory when my Mum died. Both were from boating friends. We bought Peace ourselves, and the white iceberg for Maggie because we liked it.

  6. maggie was surely cute

  7. She was a lovely, lovely dog. And she’ll be glad to see you again one day. ❤
