Wigglebutt. - March 1st 2009, 08:07 PM

I was eleven.
We moved to a new house in a new neighborhood, away from my best friends.
I hated it.
I was so alone and I wanted to move back so bad.
Then my mom introduced me to the neighbors across the street.
They were kind of old, normally I would have no interest in people like them.
But they had just adopted the cutest black Labrador puppy ever.
She was six weeks and the happiest puppy in the world.
When you went to pet her she licked your hand, arm, anything in reach.
And her tail shook back and forth with amazing speed, and she was so little that that movement would make her whole butt wiggle.
She would sit at my feet and wiggle her butt and lick my little fifth grader hands.
That's when I fell in love.
I was over at their house every day.
"Can I walk Maggie?"
They would just smile at me and go put her leash on and hand her over to me.
I'd just walk her to my house, right across the street.
And sit with her for hours.
Letting her little butt wiggle, and her big wet tongue slobber all over me.
She had the biggest paws I'd ever seen.
They looked disproportionate really.
She had such a little body, just a baby, and these huge feet.
My mom said she was gonna be a big dog.
I didn't believe her, she was my baby wigglebutt.
But she did get big.
It was harder and harder to walk her, she quickly outweighed me and could easily drag me anywhere she felt like.
But she never failed to be ecstatic when I came to the door.
She was my best friend.
When she got to be too much for my little sixth grade body, her owners suggested I take her to training classes, they would pay, I would get to take her, and I would still be able to walk her.
Perfect plan.
I took her every Thursday.
She was so smart.
She wasn't too interested in learning how to heel, or sit, or lay down for the trainer.
But she would for me.
I remember the trainer would yank her leash from me and be like, "No, like this. Maggie SIT."
And Maggie would stand there looking at me.
Ignoring the trainer.
Who would get frustrated and hand her back to me.
"Maggie," I would coax, "sit."
And she would.
Sit there, wagging her tail as I praised her.
One day we were learning the lay down command, and I got her to lay down, and while the trainer was talking she managed to rip open a bag of dog food and consume the pieces that fell on the floor.
She knew how to get what she wanted.
She wanted food, and she wanted me to be happy.
We graduated with flying colors from that training school.
And for years it was me and her.
People would always see us walking around the neighborhood.
It was often that I head, "Oh, there's Emma and Maggie. That dog is bigger than she is."
I didn't care.
She didn't care.
She was my baby wigglebutt.
One day, my mom said we had to move to California.
I hated her.
I didn't want to leave my school, my friends, my Maggie.
But I did.
I lived for two years here, without Maggie.
Always knowing that she was still there, waiting for me to come back.
...yesterday, I got an email.
Maggie got put down.
She was full of cancer and there was nothing they could do.
I cried for hours.
I'm gonna miss her so much.
My baby wigglebutt.

Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained

Remember happy?

Aww. I'm sorry. It's always hard when a pet dies. They become part of our family. They become a friend. She is in doggie heaven watching over you. One day you will see her again. Right now the only thing you can do is remember the good times you had. *hugs*

P.M me anytime you need or want to talk to me. God Bless.

I read this and it made me tear up. I feel so bad for you, Emma. I wish that you could have seen Maggie one last time. I also wish I had more words to say to you. I just want to stress how okay it is to cry over a pet and mourn the loss of a pet. She was still your friend, she was almost like family to you. This link could help you.

firstly, remember that maggie the wigglebutt will always stay beside you and want you to be happy. thats because you were the best owner she could have ever asked for. She was definitely proud to have her life been touched by you. remember that maggie would like you to be happy, and that she'll definitely want you to live life to the fullest

and besides that, always remember that her life is blessed in every possible way.. because YOU entered it. always remember that, and remember that maggie loves you deeply and the love she has for you is going to stay for good. she'll be watching over you

always ready to talk to.

Those who have went through more pain than everyone else, and want to protect anyone and everyone they know and care for from that pain, are stronger than everyone.

we come, we help, we stick and never leave. pm me anytimeee!
