Today I lost my Maggie Mae. I am completely devestated by this. We left her for one hour to see a friend in the hospital today. As you all know, she had heart disease and was 15 years old in October. I feel like my child died. When we came in the door, she was lying in her usual stop in the family room. I knew as soon as I saw her. My Husband was sobbing terribly while trying to revive her but we knew she was already gone. I wanted all of you to know how much I enjoyed this board and sharing stories about her. I also loved hearing all your stories. My Husband and I just can't stop crying. We could never have children so she was the "baby" we could'nt have. I don't think I can visit this board again. It's just too painful. I'm asking for all your prayers. I don't know how I'm going to get through this. I know I will need some kind of grief help. I just can't believe she is gone. We had 15 wonderful years with an incredible hound. I called her breeder this afternoon and she listened to me cry my heart out. Please keep my Husband and I in your prayers and say a special prayer for my Maggie Mae who now is in heaven.
