In Memoriam

While we are celebrating the start of our new venture, we are devastated by the sudden and unexpected loss of our golden retriever Maggie. She fell critically ill on Friday night and was gone by Saturday morning. This has been especially hard for Jay who got Maggie as a puppy. We all decided that the best way to honor her memory is to dedicate our opening day to Maggie Scott. She was a wonderful dog who loved to run through the woods and loved to go fishing with Jay. She went everywhere with us. We miss you girl.


  1. I'm so very sorry to hear of your loss. I can empathize. I've had both kinds of losses of my pets over the years: those that take longer and those that come suddenly. I think the sudden ones are worse because you have no time to get your head around it or to savor some last time together. I know you're very busy right now, but take time to grieve--and it will take as long as it takes. If and when you are ready, there are always animals looking for their forever home--and Maggie would probably want you to rescue someone else and pass along the sort of affection and caring you obviously had for her. My sincere condolences.

  2. Thanks, Billie. Yeah, we had no idea. She seemed so healthy until last Friday when she started laboring to breathe. We'll miss her and will likely bring another family member into our home someday. For now, we just are remembering all the great things she did.
