This rug you see... yeah- she chewed sections of the green part up! I think she still has some puppy in her.

New Family Member...
Don't get too excited... its another dog! Now that we have a house and a backyard we wanted to get a "big" dog. I had been going to the SPCA to search out for a Golden Retriever that needed rescuing. I didn't have any luck. After a few months of looking and finding no golden's, I was walking out of the shelter and overheard a conversation. An elderly couple had found a dog on the highway, she was almost hit by a car so they snatched her up. They put an ad in the paper trying to find her home, or any home for that matter. After 3 days they brought her into the SPCA, but the lady at the front desk said the SPCA was full and they could not take any more dogs at this time. The couple seemed upset because they were unable to keep her or find her a home. They didn't want to put her down, so has soon as I heard "put down" I yelled out "I'll take her!" The SPCA worker seemed shocked and said "Wow, what great timing." So I took her home and she has become a great addition to our family. She is sooo sweet and just wants to cuddle all the time. However... we just got grass in our backyard after months of dealing with dirt, and shes a digger! I have giant holes all over my backyard. So if anyone knows how to handle that - I'd love some advice. But she's so beautiful and sweet I can't part with her. We named her Maggie and its weird how you can tell that she is grateful to have a home. Dogs are so great, aren't they?
