Our Sweet Little Maggie

Our sweet little Westie Maggie passed away last Tuesday, the 13th. (She'd been 15 1/2 today.)
Over the weekend Shutterfly photo had a free offer. Two 8 x 10's were one of the choices.
 So I just had to make up these collages. Several in the bottom photo were taken on her last night.
I never imagine just how heartbroken I'd feel . . . . .This is going to take some time . . . . . . .
The next morning when I turned on the car radio the first song that came on was Rod Stewart's "Maggie May". She was named after that song. I sent an email to the DJ, Maria Milito on the NY radio station Q 104.3 to tell her the connection to the song and said how much it meant to me to hear that song at that time. She emailed me back with a sweet reply and we've exchanged a few more emails since. 
Then 3 days later I'm on the Internet and click on this link about a "Kitchen of Your Dreams" since we had just recently gotten a proposal for a kitchen I figured I'd check it out.   Not only does this picture have a Westie in it but it's very much like the one from the showroom that I picked out from the contractor!
AND when I scrolled down the woman in the article is holding her dog, which is white, but clearly not a Westie. So it appears they just used a Westie when they staged the kitchen shot! 
(You know things like this have happened to me all my life.)
From a past posting:

There are other stories about her throughout the years on Hodgepodge.
