The Blue Star

About a week ago when Samba and I were out late at night, she went sniffing around the yard and I looked up at the clear night sky. There just to the southeast of us was a bright blue star. It was beautiful and I watched it for a long time. The next night I looked up and there it was again shining with a bright blue glow. I didn't trust my eyes, so I went in and told Rob about it and asked him to come take a look. He confirmed that it was indeed blue.
I check for that star every evening now and when I heard yesterday that our friend Maggie had crossed the rainbow bridge, I knew that the blue star was there to guide her safely.
Now whenever I look up at our star, I smile because I see Maggie watching over us.

A bittersweet star, indeed. Another loss, tempered by the wonderful memories Maggie left with her family.

I saw a shooting star as I left the airport Saturday night. I found out later that Maggie must have been running by to visit my airedale buddy in the area.

We are really going to miss Maggie and we feel sad about her passing. We send our hugs to Mitch and her family, too.

A blue star for a very special pup. We keep her memories close to our hearts.
