is about 34 lbs and about 18” from the floor to the top of her shoulder
2. For the times that she could not travel
with us, she has made the transition to the grandparents very nicely
3. If we are sitting on the couch watching
TV… Maggie will jump up to lay her head on one of us while we watch
4. Most days when the kids come home from
school, I will let her out to greet them. As she jumps on them and licks their face it looks like a Coca Cola commercial.
Every day is another Kodak moment
We also have 2 cats. As you might expect, they did not like Maggie when she arrived,
but they now sleep together on our bed
I have noted that some times she is a little fussy with small children, so I make sure
that I hold her if a small child approaches her. She has not bitten anyone, but she sometimes backs away suddenly from
walk her about 45-60 minutes every day… she truly loves walking around the neighborhood… I have tried running
with her… that has gone OK… but she prefers to walk… she is not a fast running dog
we are walking around the neighborhood, if Maggie sees another dog, she immediately will get down as low as possible with
her snout between her front paws. Then when the other dog gets close, many times she will roll over to allow the other
dog to sniff her. Most of the dog owners that I have talked to do not recall seeing a more submissive dog.
we are walking Maggie around the neighborhood, we regularly are stopped and people ask us what kind of dog we have.
I had one woman run out of her garage to ask me that question… I did not know the woman previously. We have referred
many people to your website.
10.She has only chewed up one pair of shoes, but if she does chew on something
that she should not be eating, and we walk up to her saying “Maggie”… she immediately rolls over on her
back in another submissive display… it really is difficult to get angry with her.
had dogs growing up, but for my wife, it is a whole new world. Every day when she comes home from work, Maggie is either
waiting for her at the door to the garage, or she runs through the house to greet her.
not like going to get her hair cut at the Pet Clips shop… but I suspect that most dogs dislike the haircuts
one odd quirk, she does not eat right away when we put food in her bowl… she lays down next to it for a while and then
eats… unless one of the cats tries to eat her food, and then she responds quickly.
does not bark much except at any delivery person in a uniform.
15.When no one is looking, Maggie silently
walks into my daughters’ room and finds a bin of her “Webkinz” plush toys and sniffs around to find just
the perfect one. She steals them, runs away, and is caught chewing on it behind the couch.
my daughter and Maggie will chase
each other up and down the stairs with one of her stuffed animal toys.
17.Or if one of us stops… looks at her for a few seconds.. gets
into the crouch position.. and then runs up the stairs… Maggie will almost always chase us into one of the bedrooms
also has developed an odd habit of turning over our waste baskets to look for treasure.
I will ask Maggie to help me wake up Blake or Taylor… she will run up to their door and patiently wait until I open
it… and then she will run and jump on their beds.. and then lick them until they get up
needs to go outside to do her business, she will come and get one of us.. or if we are on the main floor… she will
go sit by the sliding glass door and look at us until we let her out
21.She has far exceeded any expectations
that we had for our family pet. She is very friendly, and enjoys going with us everywhere.
