Happy Tails for Maggie (formerly Misty)
August 13, 2011
It’s us – Maggie and Sudley (formerly Misty and Paisley/Lee). You can call us Mags and Suds though – that is what our friends call us – and heck, you guys are family!!! We wanted to drop you a note to fill you in on how lucky we are to find our forever home!!!
Maggie was a lucky girl and found her forever home in July 2006 – so she has been with Mom for five years now!!! Mom just put in Mags’ paperwork for LOL, so we are hoping she gets accepted. You certainly wouldn’t know Mags was 7 years old by her sassy and playful attitude though!! Well, Mom decided that Mags needed a companion – at least that is what Mom says. We think Mom just had so much extra love to give, that she wanted another Labbie around the house. But it is OK if Mom uses Maggie as the reason!!! Actually, Maggie wasn’t too thrilled at first when Sudley (a feisty 2.5 year old) joined the family in May 2011!! The day after Suds got here, Mags had that look to Mom like “Well, that lady who brought him left. Did she realize she forgot to take him with her? He is still here! When is he going home?” After a few more days though, Mags realized that Suds was HOME, and she has dealt with it pretty well!!! Suds is quite the snuggler, and with that really big tongue he has, well he gives some serious puppy kisses!!! The two of us play together, and Mom loves to see that. One thing Mom hates is that we try to chase the kitties in the house (they are old, so Mom worries) – so Mom has been working “No Chase” with us. Why do Moms have to take all the fun out of things – oh well, small price to pay for having a forever home with tons and tons of love!!!! We love to go for walks and chase the ball (Chuck-Its are the best, since Mom throws like a girl)!!! And we both settle quite nicely after playing!!!
Oh, Mom told us that we will be adding to our family!!! A couple months ago, a man came to the house for a couple weeks. He is really cool and spoiled us with lots of love and attention. He throws the ball way better than Mom does!!! Well, Mom said he is coming home from the desert very soon and his name is Dad!!!! She said Dad has to put in his LRR paperwork to make it official – but that he loves us just as much, if not more than, Mom does!!! How lucky are we????? We get to be adopted (which to us means they choose to love us, not have to love us) twice – without losing our forever home or our Mom!!!
Well, until next time!! We think we hear Mom calling us to go for a walk!! Take care and thanks so much for helping both of us find our forever home!!!

Hi LRR!!!!! This is Maggie, but you knew me as Misty. I hope you all are doing great and this weather hasn’t gotten you down. It makes it tough for me to get outside and walk, but Mom makes arrangements for me to go to Day Care a couple days a week, so I can run and play with my friends, and get my exercise!!! I just LOVE school (that is what Mom calls Day Care). My best friends there are a Great Dane named Greta and a Lab Mix named Sage.
I was reading the Happy Tails from the past few lucky dogs (get it - lucky dogs - I crack myself up sometimes) when Mom was at work - she doesn’t know I get on the computer and surf the doggie websites. Sounds like I am not the only LRR Alum that got LUCKY!!!!!
I rescued my Mom back in July of 2006 (I say that because Mom always asks to me “Who rescued who here?”), and although there has been some growing because of Mom’s cats she had previously, we are all one great and happy family. I can see quite a change in Mom since I have come into her life. My favorite thing when she comes home from work is to lick her face and take away all the cares of the day! She says I am the best at that since I can kiss away all her problems. Don’t tell the cats, but I know I am the center of Mom’s universe!!! The cats tolerate me, but I don’t understand why they don’t want to play with me - maybe because I am lots bigger than them. I have been really lucky with my Mom. She has taken me to classes to make me be a well-rounded and behaved young lady. We go to the park and play with the Chuck-It (which is a good thing since Mom throws like a girl). Sometimes we go over to Mom’s friends who have labbies (my cousins) for play dates, and this is where I go on the rare occasion Mom has to go out of town - it is so much better than a kennel or even the Pet Resort she took me to one time. My favorite treat Mom gives me is the frozen, stuffed Kong (mix a bit of peanut butter and plain yogurt, stuff the Kong, freeze it, and ta-da a treat to keep me busy). What I LOVE best about my Mom is that she LOVES me as much as I LOVE her and she tells me I am in my FOREVER HOME!!! How great is that!!!!
Well, she is due home from work anytime, so I better go take my place near the door and wait for her (she thinks I hang out by the door waiting for her - silly Mom). But I wanted to fill you in on my fantastic new life and say THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for taking such great care of me and for letting me go to just the right home for me!! I love you guys!!!
