We are doing the reintroduction thing about my beautiful sweet Maggie. Sweet describes this girl, especially when it comes to other animals. She surrogate mothered my pot belly pig Sir Nigel of Truffles and has cats and dogs all wanting to cuddle with her where ever she lays, which is a pain if it is on my lap, is in the house! LOL Maggie barks fiercely at strangers that come in the yard or house and is an excellent watch dog. She responds to me when I say it OK. Little Maggie, all 25 pounds of her, was given to me when she was 10 months old from a breeder in Florida who had initially intended to keep her with the mother dog, then "thought 2 dogs was too much trouble." One of those deals. Maggie had some real dumb name, totally undignified, don't even remember it or want to. She was on her way to the pound, a kill shelter. I knew this woman at the hospital I worked at and told her I would come and see her. I immediately fell in love with her. She was very playful and has incredible eyes with black eyeliner around them. Look like party girl eyes. You know the morning after the eye makeup smeared. Took her home, got her spayed and her shots. Taught her how to swim, we had a pool then and cuddled her. I only had one cat at that time. Now we have 3 dogs and 4 cats in the house. Maggie and 2 cats are in my room. Kari my daughter has 2 cats sleep with her, and Kelly, English Springer Spaniel, another rescue story 8 years old, likes to sleep on the couch in the Family room. It all works out. Piggy of course has his crate in the living room and like Maggie loves everyone.

Maggie has epilepsy, which we treat with Phenobarbital to control her seizures, and a chronic eye condition in her left eye which must be treated with Pred Forte 1% eyedrops. She eats Iams Lamb and Rice dry dog food and gets Vit E for her coat. For treats, she likes fresh veggies and fruit, probably because piggy get them.
