You've Met Scout ...

Now it's Maggie's turn.


We tend to be a two-dog family but have spent the last 12 months or so with just one. That was until my husband met this speckled, freckled pup in a store parking lot. She was one of several being given away to good homes. Ours definitely counts in that category. When it comes to providing a good home to a dog, you could say that our dogs live as comfortably (if not more so) than we do.
When I first met her, my husband was quick to point out that little Maggie would be the smartest dog we've ever owned. "Part lab, part border collie," he said.

"She looks kind of like a bird dog to me," I replied.

"Hmmm," said my husband, "that's exactly what the vet's office called her."



According to the vet's assistant, Scout, our shepherd-hound, is really a "coonhound." And now Maggie is listed as a "bird dog." I guess the vet's assistant doesn't have quite the imagination needed to properly identify such fancy mixed-breed dogs.

Roban I would you to tell Maggie these words from me:

Maggie, you are a beautiful little girl. I'm so glad you found a loving home. I love your gorgeous face. Your coloring is magnificent.

Lots of hugs, kisses, tummy rubs, and bikkies.

Peggy

PS May you have many, many happy, healthy years together.

How fun to get a second dog! I know you will be great parents. We are a two dog family as well. Not to mention a cat and gerbil.

I followed your link from Nina's post today. Yes, that's a definite bird dog stance. What a beauty.

I just wrote a post yesterday about our family's dogs. Although we are usually a two-dog family, we have only one now.
