    New Family Member

    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:

    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.

    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.

    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.
