Her memory will live on by helping others
Miss Maggie was rescued by Evesham Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue (EGLR) from a miserable existence, she was close to death but her spirit, with the care she received from a very special fosterer gave her the strength to recover.
I fell in love with Miss Maggie from the moment I saw her, sadly she had less than 2 years with us .
Those 2 short years however changed our lives and hers.
Miss Maggie's Supper Box has been set up as a legacy to Miss Maggie and her partner in crime Mr Duskey.
The aim is to raise funds for Old Age Lurchers (OAL's) and sighthounds over the age of 8 who find themselves in a rescue.
Why is it called the supper box fund? - well, every night before bed Miss Maggie and Mr Duskey would always wait patiently for me to produce their supper box, this was a plastic box filled with their favourite treats. I do believe this was a favourite time of day for both of them, Maggie used to do an excited little jig on her wobbly legs at the mere mention of it.
As a tribute to these special rescued Lurchers their virtual supper box now sends treats, money to help with vet fees, coats, joint supplements etc to older sighthounds in rescue.
