Canine Maggie Passes At 30

Shades of Rod Stewart belting out his Maggie hit song
Before thousands of female fans screaming with him they want to belong
Or the idiom that every dog has its day
Especially when a Kelpie in Australia  a canine Maggie longevity displays
After 30 years Maggie with her beloved human friend
Did not wake up from her comfy, doggie bed
So much for in this case the myth that a dog’s life compared to us is 7 to 1
But not the pain of losing a loved canine, no longer able to enjoy her dog run
If the 7 to 1 ratio would be the iron rule
Her owner would be 210 but probably a vegetated fool
Wives and business partners come and go
But to his or her human, eternal loyalty will alwaysbe bestowed
God must be a lover of dogs beyond compare
And with humans and their faults his favorite pets He no longer wants to share
