Likes:
Getting Penny. Chasing Penny. Herding Penny. Penny's toys. Penny.

Pet-Peeves:
Rainy weather that keeps her from running wildly outside.

Favorite Toy:
Penny. But, she's also a fan of big, oversized stuffed toys--her favorite is a Thomas the Train throw pillow four times the size of her head!

Favorite Food:
Pork necks--she's been known to steal them off the plate before her dinner is really served.

Favorite Walk:
The park--Maggie is a slide fiend!

Best Tricks:
She runs up and slides down children's play equipment slides joyously. It's pretty impressive in person.

Arrival Story:
We were looking to adopt a third dog after buying a larger home in April of 2010, but because of Penny's special needs, we had some very specific requirements, the most important being, it had to be an "easy" dog. After trolling rescue sites--our usual venues--and reading tragic tale after tragic tale, we finally found Maggie. At just 3 mos. old, she had been rescued from a Michigan kill shelter by a veterinarian. She'd been living with the veterinarian's family for a year, but the recognized her potential as an athlete and were reeling under time constraints that didn't accommodate Maggie's incredibly high energy. Maggie was spending 8+ hours each day in a crate and developing some bad habits due to her unspent energy by the time we contacted her owner about her. After several long emails and a few phone calls, we drove two states away to bring Maggie home, just a week after moving into our new house.

Forums Motto:
Get Penny.
