Magnolia Annabelle Van Black

Today Maggy retrieved her final duck. And I can only imagine it was her favorite hunt yet. She was the lone retriever this morning. Two and a half hours into an exciting hunt she was retrieving a duck when she had a heart attack. Just thinking about our favorite fox red lab makes me cry. Her welcoming wag, continuous kisses and distructive tail will be memories we cherish always! Although I was only around for seven of her eleven years, I loved her like she was my own. For Wayne the loss has been particularly difficult. After all, for a duck hunter, a man's dog truly is his best friend. Maggy was buried at the cabin, her favorite place.
