and the run the following Spring that finished her NATCH-S
and she did some APDT Rally Obedience as a Tripawd earning:
RL1, RL2, RL3,RLVX2 and
APDT Awards Of Excellence-LV, L1, L2, L3
and she competed in Wag It Games as a Tripawd earning:
WAG2S Heart Dog, WAG2O Heart Dog, WAG1SNIFF Heart Dog
Maggie was the inspiration for the “Heart Dog Program” in Wag It Games!
And of course, it wasn’t just about competing – when I watch these, it
makes me really realize how sick and weak she was at the end…
Tried to do a few little “normal” things with Maggie this summer – her Dog Ball training was never finished…
My girl being as strong as she could be with her continued weakness due to the kidney disease…
I will go on, I’ll find the strength, life measures quality, not its length. One long embrace before you leave, share one last look, before I grieve. There are others, that much is true, but they be they, and they aren’t you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought, will remember well all you’ve taught.
Your place I’ll hold, you will be missed, the coat I stroked, the nose I kissed,. And as you journey to your final rest, take with you this…..I loved you best.
Maggie was diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma on her left knee. She had amputation done on October 20, 2009. Four days after surgery she had a low grade fever and was off her food for two weeks! Trying times.. I am grateful and so pleased with how she is progressing now.
