So it has been a little over a year since we had to put Mercedes (my avatar) down, and we have decided for a couple of reasons that it is time to get another puppy. The first is so that our grandkids have a dog to grow up with, and second because our male is getting on in age so we want another dog ready to go when the time comes.
This is Maggie, she will be joining the family in two weeks when we get back from vacation:

Sorry to hear you had to put down your beloved pet. But the replacement sure is a good lookin pup. Hope you have many years of enjoyment with her.
I'm sure Mercedes would approve! Congratulations on your new little one!
It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
Cute puppy! Hope she turns out well for you.

I mentioned getting another dog. The wife's look said a thousand words.

Good looking pup. I have heard that getting a puppy can actually extend the life of an older dog.
Beautiful pup, congratulations.

That is a good looking dog. But something tells me that the ball turned into a field of stuffing and fabric fragments shortly after the picture was taken.
Good looking pup, congrats on the new member!
