We were worried for Maggie as she has had Gus with her since she left her birth brothers and mama. She appears to be fine. She paused and looked into Gus's empty kennel before going to her own on the first night. I wondered if she was looking for him. I am thankful that she has Lady and is not alone. We were not too worried about Lady as she is quite resilient and has endured much change in her life. Those two poodles were partners in crime and were quite close.
Maggie has been having knee problems for the past month and we will find out this Wednesday if surgery is in order. It has been a tough go for the past month and I have been spending lots of time at the vet's office.
I sometimes question the value of all of the LO's I create and albums I have. I have to say that I am feeling so thankful that I have such a great documentation of Gus's life with so many memories recorded. When I get in the new house and am unpacked, I plan on collecting all of my LO's of Gus and compiling them into albums as a remembrance of his life and the joy he brought us.
I'll leave you with a photo that Rob took of me and Gus having a little cuddle time before his appointment. He was a good boy and I am thankful to have had him as a constant companion for the past 7 years. But... all dogs go to heaven. (A favourite movie of my girls when they were little.) I know he had a good life.
