Well we have had our new puppy, Maggie for a couple of months now. She seems to be working out quite well, which is amazing if you consider our past history with dogs. There was Harley, the beagle / sheepdog...don't ask. Gilbert, the dog who liked to eat Gavin. One of them had to go. The girls voted for Gavin, leaving that is. Nice sisters! Good thing I had the deciding vote. Buffy, the vanishing and reappearing dog. She was gone for like 3 months one winter, only to show back up all bald and crazy. Or was it really Buffy??? There is a convincing argument that she was an impostor. Then we had Oscar. A crazy little dog who liked to feed on the neighbor boy and last but not least Fred, the shelter dog. He was apparently abused and never house broke, and like to runs....all the time, everywhere! So yes, the track record on dogs is pretty discouraging. However, Maggie appears to be a winner.
Maggie, is an almost 4 months old Yorkie. She weighs about 3 pounds and is super cute. So far we have seen no crazy tendencies. She has some potty training issues...but she is still a baby. She absolutely loves our two cats. The feelings are unfortunately not mutual. (Cats are a whole other story...a possible future blog.)
So I think Maggie is gonna work out. Gavin would really like to change her name to Kevin. But I think we will stick with Maggie.
