Even though she was an older golden retriever she always acted like a puppy. She loved hunting with my dad and she was very upset when he had to retire her last year due to her age and health (she just couldn't take the cold water anymore).
My dad will miss her company, her cheerful disposition when he arrived home and her running to meet him at his truck, their morning walks to get the newspaper, peanut butter and graham cracker snack time, even her annoying habit of running off when you weren't looking to go eat the neighbors scraps.
Maggie you will be greatly missed and never replaced. Thanks for putting up with Lola's annoying puppy antics and I'm glad you got to sniff Ethan at Thanksgiving. I hope there's lots of yummy food for you to eat in doggie heaven!
