ABOUT MAGGIE-We decided to get a puppy and began scouring the local online market places in the beginning of July in 2005. We answered an ad that was advertising small, mixed breed pups, made an appointment and drove an hour north to Nordingrå to visit the puppies. The breeder had the puppies out in her yard in a small enclosure. The pups were 8 weeks old. She told us that the mother was a Papillon and that the father was a Yorkshire Terrier. Both parents were there. One of the puppies looked very much like a Chihuahua, as he was short-haired and black and tan colored. I questioned the owner, because the father of the puppies did not look like a pure bred Yorkie to me, but she insisted that he was.There were four puppies in the litter. One had been sold already. Beside the one that looked like a Chihuahua, there was Maggie and then another female that had the same features as Maggie, only she was all brown with a black stripe running down the middle of her back. We decided that we liked the coloring of little Maggie and her sweet disposition, so we happily bought her and took her home that day.I have heard of so many names of this mixed breed. They can be called Yorkipaps, Papiyorks or Yorkillons! Maggie has the Yorkie face with the Pap ears and coloring. So many people that meet her have said what a perfect combination of breeds she seems to be!One of the neat things about Maggie is that we will never forget her birthday. She was born on May 5, 2005, so it's 5/5/05! So I suppose you could say that her lucky number is 5!

We Should Pay Better Attention To What We Feed Our Dogs

I was just thinking about what I am feeding Maggie. She gets some small amounts of meat from me on ocassion and I buy her one of the 'higher end' dry dog foods on the market. I prefer the lamb and rice varieties as the rice is much better for a dog's system then corn is, which is the main ingredient in the cheaper brands. I found this really great info packet here It is 'The Complete Dog Nutrition Guide - Ebooks, Audios & Subscription'. It offers info on nutrition tips..brand name dog food ingredients..special diet info, recipes for homemade dog food..all about dog’ health related to nutrition. It is really great and I would highly recommend it to ANY dog owner who wants the best for their dog.
I have just finished buying a memory card to my digital camera so I can take more photos of Mags and will be loading them here real soon, so please come back and check them out. I would love some comments too! Cin
