Today is a day for sadness & remembrance. One of mine & mom's favorite blogs is The Long & Short of it All & today the sad news came that the hostess of this wonderful site, Maggie, has passed over the rainbow bridge. She leaves behind her brother (Joey) & dad and tons of admirers around the globe and she will definitely be missed. Mom & I are very sad to hear this news & just wanted to pay our respects to Maggie, below are some quotes mom found that express how we feel:
"You think dogs will not be in heaven? I tell you, they will be there long before any of us."(Robert Louis Stevenson)
"Not the least hard thing to bear when they go from us, these quiet friends, is that they carry away with them so many years of our own lives."(John Galsworthy)
"Dogs don't know about beginnings, and they don't speculate on matters that occurred before their time. Dogs also don't know — or at least don't accept — the concept of death. With no concept of beginnings or endings dogs probably don't know that for people having a dog as a life companion provides a streak of light between two eternities of darkness."(Stanley Coren )
"A person who has never owned a dog has missed a wonderful part of life."(Bob Barker)
Rest in peace sweet Maggie.
