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 NordingrĂ¥ 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!

White House Puppy?

Well, there are only two days left until the Obamas move into the White House and we all have heard that he promised his daughters a dog when they moved into their new home. When asked what kind of dog he was going to get he replied 'Probably a mutt like me!'. So of course, everyone is wondering and waiting to see what kind of pooch gets to occupy the big house on Pennsylvania Avenue! Offers poured in from all across the US and around the world, offering puppies, making suggestions and on and on! I personally don't care if he gets a mixed breed or a pure bred. It's the family's choice. No one can make the choice for them, but it will be interesting to see what kind of dog they get, as it will be an instant celebrity! What do you think? Will it be a pure bred or a mutt?

  1. Thanks for coming to my blog and the nice comments about Lily- she's just the best dog ever- like yours- your puppy is really cute all the photos! And I hope Obama goes with a rescue or shelter dog- there are too many homeless dogs that need a great home. Nice site..

  2. Hello Cin!

    Thank you for the comment on my blog!

    Your little Maggie is very beautiful.

    I hope the Obamas get a dog with a nice temperament that matches their family's lifestyle. I agree with Shannon, and would be especially pleased if they got a shelter dog.
