Oh my dear friend, it has been a crazy day today and I am much later posting than I had intended! But here we are again, another year and another anniversary -- another opportunity to remember and honor sweet Maggie. How fast the days and months -- and years -- seem to fly by. Quicker and quicker for me, it seems.

I hope this day finds you and the girls all three well. Although I know you will never stop missing Maggie, and that this day will always remain so bittersweet for you.

Sending you so many hugs, and I am lighting my candle for our babies. Just as always.

Jeanie, I am sending you my love and warm wishes, today and everyday.
Marianne

Hi Jeanie-

I am fairly new to this site, but I wanted to stop in and say hi. You posted you were in Indianapolis. I live in Broad Ripple. Small world.

Did you help develop this site? I got that feeling from reading Marianne's post. If so, thank you so much. This site is wonderful. I don't know what I would do without it.

Did you see a vet in the Indianapolis area? I have a general vet and IMS, but it is always good to know of others in case I ever need to change.

Sorry for the loss of your baby those years ago.

Hugs,

Ro and Chey

Oh, Marianne....my sweet friend....I was SO worried, when I didn't hear from you. I know you have had some issues with Peg and Luna, and I was hoping you just forgot and that nothing was wrong.

As always, it was a bittersweet day. I still light my tealight candle every night for my precious girl....and always will. I do still miss her so and wonder what my life would be like if she were still with me.

Jolly is fine, but Annabel is dealing with what we think (hope) is a bladder infection, so I had her back to the vet today. The antibiotic has cleared up her bladder based on an ultrasound, but she still has the symptoms of drinking and peeing excessively. We are waiting for more tests and hoping it is not something more sinister. She is only 4.....and I hope too young for some of the other possiblities.

Ro....I lived in Anderson, but now live in Nineveh....at Sweetwater Lake. It is south of Franklin and north of Columbus. At the time I had Maggie, I lived in Anderson. At the time, I took Maggie to Indianapolis Veterinary Specialists.....they have a new building now, but used to be at 82nd. Bash. Forgive my bluntness.....but HATE THEM!!!!! It was the most poorly run business I have ever seen and a total rip-off. So....I hope you are not going there.....I think they are now part of VCA....or something like that. I did have a good caring vet in Anderson who is now with Allisonville Animal hospital, I think....her name is Marcie Short.

Thank you Lyn for your kind words, too.

I hope all of your puppers are doing well. We were so limited by the medication, when my girl was sick.

Take care....all of you....and my dear Marianne....thank you for your friendship and always remembering my Maggie and me.

Love and hugs,
Jeanie

Jeanie, I am so relieved you checked back yesterday! I was so worried I had posted so late on Monday that you would think I had forgotten.

But here we are again, all together.

I am really sorry to hear that Annabel is worrying you a bit. You know, if ever you would like to talk over what's going on, you can start a new thread about her on our "Everything Else" forum. I've done that with Peg. And even though she's not a Cushpup, I've gotten some great suggestions (and support) about all her other issues. But hopefully, Annabel will soon be back to normal and all the worries will be gone.

Otherwise wishing you a wonderful holiday season. Like me with Barkis, I'm sure you have so many special memories of Maggie that transport you back across the years. If only we could have them back for just one hour! But we'll carry those memories with us always, and cherish them.

Once again, it is so good to see you, Jeanie!

Love, Marianne

Yes, I know about where you are. There are a few lakes down south, but I have definitely heard of Sweetwater.

Yikes......the IMS we see is part of VCA. It is now at 96th and Hague, right off of 69. My vet referred us there. The building is really nice, but I have only been going there for about a month now.

Ro,

Feel free to e-mail me at maggiesmomma@msn.com

I believe all of the previous vets from Indianapolis Veterinary specialists are no longer there, and maybe not even the same owners, so perhaps things have improved. I know that our specialist Dr. Jennifer Brinson has moved on.

I would be happy to tell you my experiences, if you would like.

Hugs to you and your Chewy,
Jeanie

My dear Jeanie...

Here we are together, on another one of our milestone mornings, and what a milestone this is . On this December 10th, it has been 10 years since our sweet Maggie earned her angel wings. And I know you still love her and miss her, just as though it was only yesterday. What a precious girl, now and forever!

I hope this December otherwise finds you and the girls well, though. I am especially hoping that little Annabel is now fit as a fiddle, with no worries for her mom!

My own little family is doing well, although the passing years continue to bring both joy and loss as new friendships continue to be made at the same time that other loved ones leave us. So much seems to change around us, and that is what makes our little traditions all the more special. So I am hoping you will be stopping by today! I will be lighting my candles and thinking of you and all the girls, and especially of Maggie and Barkis who are probably snuggled close together today -- and maybe sharing some stories of their own...

Many, many hugs to mark this decade of friendship ,
Marianne

Ohhh....my dear, sweet friend...thank you so much for your lovely post. This year, I actually almost forgot....I remembered late that night, before I went to sleep, but I was having internet problems, so couldn't post. Yesterday, I ran errands...and now today, I have had a chance to check out the forum and saw your wonderful words.

I guess that proves that time does "help" to heal all wounds. I am amazed it has been 10 years. So much has changed for me..not necessarily gotten better....just changed.

Both of my girls are very healthy right now. I have them on a commercially prepared raw diet and some supplements that are really working to improve their health. Jolly is 10 now, and the vet was amazed, as she looks and acts like a 2 year old. Annabel is an "old soul" at age 5, and other than licking her feet is doing very well. She is my snuggle bunny and she thinks it is her job to protect Jolly & me.

I do miss my Maggie and still light the candle every night. She was part of a very different life than the one I lead now. Uh oh....I'm getting teary ...so I will say in closing...thank you again for always remembering us. I agree, I think Maggie and Barkis probably spent the day together discussing us.

I hope you and your girls and family are doing well...."see" you on the 10th. of August.

Love and hugs,
Jeanie
