Magnolia Dumplin' 2002-2012

We had hoped that we had more months with Maggie, but the medication didn't seem to work for her and months became weeks. This morning, Maggie ended her journey with us by her side.  We at least had time for everyone to say goodbye.

She was there each time we brought a new child home from the hospital and she accepted each of them as part of her pack. They loved her fiercely in return. She's been a companion and a part of the family for 10 years and it's going to be hard to adjust to life without her.

We'll miss you, darling girl. You'll never know how much.

Baby Liam and Maggie

Liam's first Halloween; Maggie ashamed.

What *IS* this thing I'm wearing, Ma?!

A boy and his dog.

She always did love burrowing in blankets.

Ms. Flippy Ear

Maggie and her toy crocodile. It was the only toy she never managed to fully destroy.

Jamie always wanted to help feed Maggie.

Maggie is ashamed of her doggie Snuggie.


  1. I'm so, so sorry. We'll miss Maggie, too. *hugs*

  2. Lovely photography! I'm sorry for your loss. *HUGS*

  3. Oh, sure, make me cry, why don'cha.

    So sorry for your loss, dear. Hugs to the whole clan.

  4. I am so sorry for the Maggie. The photographs are showing your love and intimacy for him....
