Maggie as a puppy : a reblog and tribute

We’ve gone through the photo box and found a lot of original snapshots so there is quite a selection for our canvas now.
Thank you all for caring. We were happy to share her with you all.


These were in the photo box.
Cue cute alert, and I make no apologies for it.

We brought Maggie home on Friday March 11th 2005. Hubby had collected me from work after I’d asked that morning if we could get another dog, even though it was just 6 days since we’d lost Barney so suddenly.
If we hadn’t had the satnav, we would never have found the farm which was way out in the sticks near Axminster.
She was one of 10 pups, 7 bitches and 3 dogs, and she picked me.

This is the first night on the sofa (we started of as we meant to go on, sigh) and the first picture of her:

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    She was adorable! It’s so nice when they pick you. You have a great husband, that’s the way my late husband was, always saying “yes” to more dogs! In fact, I didn’t always ask first! Border collies and crosses are the best!
