Maggie was the smallest puppy in a litter of nine puppies! She turned out a very special pretty girl. Here parents Travis and Lori (South Carolina) love her very much and I am deeply thankful them for that!

Get in my BELLY!!!
I'm on a boat!
I hope things are going well. My wife's been after me to send you an update on our little Maggie. She's now just over 7 months old and an absolute joy. She loves to cuddle more than any dog I've ever had; especially when she's tired. She attends daycare with her Boston Terrier big sister, Dixie, 3 days per week, and is and excellent playmate with all the other dogs. Dixie is 12 years old and has developed several issues with her eyes, including cataracts. Maggie is proving to be a very helpful little sister, often times bumping Dixie in the right direction during walks and giving Dixie kisses several times a day. Maggie is tipping the scales at around 18 pounds and has only recently conquered the task of being able to jump up on the couch without assistance. I fear she will never be able to hop up on our rice bed, but that's ok. She is quite the rambunctious one, but not overly excited with visitors. We hope this continues to be the case as it is our hope to have her qualify for a program with the local hospital system so that she can visit children in the cancer ward a few days a week. We will be able to test her for proper temperament after she is one year old. So far, I think she will make a great candidate. We hope to have her spayed later this month. We're finishing up a round with the doggie optometrists at the University of Georgia for Dixie's eye issues on Friday, so after that we can get Maggie's spaying out of the way.
As far as entertainment, I don't think the Comedy Channel can hold a candle to Maggie. She is absolutely hysterical. From dumping her toys out all over the den floor, to chasing empty plastic bottles all over the house, to the noises she makes when a toy has gotten itself wedged under the couch, she is a hoot. I am attaching a picture taken at the end of January. As you can see, Maggie's made her self right at home with us.
Little mischievous Miss Ginger, red/fawn beauty, joined family of Travis and Lori and their fur kids-Maggie, the French Mademoiselle and Dixie, the Nobel Boston Terrier Citizen Madam. Thank you, guys! And God Bless your famiy!
Ginger is settling in nicely. She, Maggie and I spent the first night curled up in our guest bed. Ginger slept all the way through the night. Today, she started playing tug of war with her big sis, Maggie and cuddling up with her senior citizens sis, Dixie. I've got some video on my Facebook page. I'll try to load them on YouTube sometime this week. I'll send you the links when they're up.
***...And she moves like lightning. I had to lay on my stomach in the floor to snap this one. She also cackles like a Gremlin. So funny to see the differences and similarities between she and Maggie. We had to put Dixie to sleep about a week and a half ago. Thanks to Ginger and Maggie bonding, they've both transitioned well.
