So, with out further ado...
Meet Maggie Mae
Maggie is a miniature schnauzer and will be eight years old on October 23. It is very hard for me to believe that almost 8 years have come and gone since she picked me to be her mom. Her real name is Margaret Mary. Yes. I have a German protestant dog with an Irish Catholic name.
I've heard it said that as animal lovers we have one or two pets who our souls connect with. Maggie is definitely that pet for me. We've been through everything together. She helped heal my heart after a stupid boy broke it. She was there with her soft fur for me to cry into, kisses to remind me that I was loved and a super fast tail wag to remind me that it was time to be happy again and that life really is beautiful.
Maggie is one of the sweetest dogs I've ever met. She loves nothing more than to cuddle on your lap and get her belly rubbed. Other than "Paw!", "Other Paw!" and "Sit!" she knows two commands "Give Momma kisses!" and "Give Momma Hugs!". I have friends who call her the anti-schnauzer because of her sweet nature. However, she does like to bark a lot and we often call her Barky von Schnauzer.
Ok actually I take that back, she might love food more than cuddling and is constantly trying to snake the other dogs food. But other than that, really she loves snuggling with her Momma best!
