Maggie May, Spike, Shelby

Mark, I could not pass this book by when I saw it in the bookstore. That face goes right to the heart. Being a pet lover who has loved and lost – this book tore me up. I had my Maggie May for 16 years 2 months. I lost her a little over 3 years ago and I miss her still. She was 6 weeks old when I brought her home. A tiny little blond curly ball. She was a cocker spaniel. My constant companion – my child. She went on vacation with my husband and me, went to family events, and followed me everywhere except to work. When she reached the point when she could not travel I was choosy who kept her, always worried about her. Losing her was devistating. My blessed dog . She gave me so much joy. I have been through illnesses and diseases with my pets, like congestive heart failure, cancer, AIDS, and currently my 6 year old Jack-Russell (Spike) is battling Lupus disease. But loving my cats and Spike and a 2 year old German Shorthair (Shelby) is nothing to what they give me. It’s unconditional love, it’s priceless. I got to page 85 in your book and I cried through every page to the end. I have been there. I have swore I cannot go through this again, yet I do. You hurt as deep as you love. It’s just the way we are made. It’s in our souls.
God bless You. Your family, and Pepsi, Griffen, and the eternally smiling Sprite. This book is a blessing to all of us who love our extended family of cats and dogs. We share your grief and understand. I am sharing this book with family and co-workers. Thank you so much for sharing Sprite and Pepsi with us.
