Maggie was a Golden Retriever who belonged to my girlfriend's roommate. This animal practiced love and devotion and loyalty to a degree that made me cry.When I was very sick, her expressions of kindness and warmth were incredible. And she had a great sense of humor --would steal anything not locked down, then taunt you with it. Now I am crying again, as she makes her journey.
I believe we will see all our beloved animal friends in the next world. Like us, they have a soul, and energy never dies, it just becomes something else.
See you then, sweet soul Maggie.
