Mama Mutt Monday Tuesday! (I meant to post this all day yesterday, and somehow did not get around to doing it!)
A few weeks ago, my sweet husband happened to mention that maybe, just maybe, we might be amenable to adopting another dog or a kitty. Once Mom leaves, we will only have one dog in the house- which will feel VERY empty after our current situation of two dogs, one cat, and one kitten (for a month while Aunt Jenny is here).
Within a hour of him mentioning the maybe I had downloaded the Pet Finder app for our i-Pad, looked at all the local shelters, and researched various breeds.
A few days later, Mom and I were running errands and decided to just stop by a local shelter- Animal Haven. Just to see if they had any kittens. A cat, after all, would be so much easier than a dog.
They did have some cats.
But, they also had this sweet 6 month old puppy.
She was found as a stray with her brother.
Her brother had just gotten adopted, and this sweet girl was lonely.
With a face likes this...
well, you can guess how this story ended.
Maggie is the sweetest dog! She pleasantly surprised us by being pretty much housebroken!
She is still a little shy around strangers, but getting better every day.
She plays. She cuddles. Her whole body wiggles when she sees us. She is the epitome of a dog who will do anything to please you. And, oh! do we love this sweet puppy!!!
She is also famous. Before she was adopted, she was in a photo shoot for People magazine with Cindy Williams (from Laverne and Shirley). Cindy Williams was doing a show in Kansas City where, at the end of each show, they would introduce a shelter dog from Animal Haven. People magazine covered the story... and, voila! This week's issue has her picture!
There's more to our experience adopting a pound puppy, but that will have to wait for another day. For now, I'd just like to say, I love the people at Animal Haven, and we adore our sweet puppy!
