Dear Maggie

Dearest Maggie:

I assure you that your mummy appreciates that you are the queen dog. No, really, you are the QUEEN DOG. We get that.

You have been the QUEEN DOG since you walked into your lives almost 11 years ago, and you will be the QUEEN DOG for as long as you live with us.

It’s just, as much as you like being an only dog, you don’t do well as an only dog. You bark when we aren’t home and without some competition, you will leave your dinner until lunch the next day.

You need a buddy.

And, I will point out, your father lost his buddy when Delta died. As much as you are mine, she was his.

And you liked the dog you met last night. Yeah, you sniffed each other and then went your separate directions. She’s about as active as you are (not very) and she’s a lover, not a fighter like you.

She looks clever (and heaven help your father and I, having 2 clever dogs to stay ahead of). I think you will like her.

I know we will.

And really, since she is coming home at noon today, Maggie my love, you don’t have a lot of choice.

Really, it will be ok.

Much love, mummy.

(I will post pictures tomorrow)

    More dog, less jackass in your living room is a good thing.
