Maggie's Last Day

Yep, today was the day we had to say our goodbyes to Miss Maggie! Mommy loved taking care of Maggie for the past month while she was waiting for her forever home to come along.

This morning it was our last breakfast together...."feeding time at the puggle zoo."

Oh boy a car ride! I look worried don't I....I knew it was going to be a sad drive! Mommy started crying before we even pulled out of the driveway! Thank goodness she brought an entire box of kleenex!

Well, here we are at the Pet Adoption Expo at the Tampa Fairgrounds! Both of us were so behaved Mommy could not believe it! There were a few dozen rescue organizations there and hundreds and hundreds of dogs that need homes! We got to sniff around and meet so many of them!

This is the last picture of us together before Mommy handed Maggie over to her new owner. It was nice to meet him and it reassured Mommy that Maggie is truly going to a wonderful home! He even showed us a picture of his puggle Jake! He is handsome just like me! I hope he likes Maggie!

Please send all of your best doggy vibes to Maggie and wish her well in her new home! She knows that if for whatever reason it doesn't work out, she has a place to come back to.
Mommy spent the rest of the day sobbing......not just because she is sad Maggie is gone, but because of the overwhelming numbers of dogs there that so desperately need a place to call home! And to think, that was just a mere fraction of the dogs from each rescue group! It is so unfair that dogs like me and all of my bloggy furiends have such wonderful caring homes, and so many never get that chance! With that being said, it is truly wonderful that Maggie now has that chance, that so many dogs will never have.
On that note.....time for more kleenex for Mommy!


CoCo said... were so wonderful to share your home with Maggie for a whole month! I'm sure she will miss you as much as you will miss her. Its too bad your family could not adopt her permanently. I'm sad too! I hope all the best for Maggie! You should be very proud of yourself for being a great buddy for the time being!

My mom gets sad too when she thinks of all the doggies out there that don't have someone to love them like she loves me. Mom tells me all the time that I've won the doggie lottery, and I think she's right.

Mom is thinking of fostering, but hasn't been able to convince Dad that this is such a good idea. Yet.

oh Bruschi, you looked so sad in the car.
my mommy is not good at staying good-bye either. Reading about how sad you and your mommy were makes her sad too. We feel like we know a lot about Maggie and she is my friend too.
