Maggie is doing great!!! She is still on [incontinence] meds, but it's really not a big deal...we're just greatful that they work...otherwise we'd be pulling up the carpets and I really like carpet ;-) She's really getting much stronger. She barely has that leg shake now...only when she's played a lot all day, then she gets it at night. She's made a lot of doggie friends here...they're young and like to run around a lot, so she gets a lot of exercise with them. She does so great off the leash. She's even gotten used to my command voice, so when she's in a distracting environment, she still listens 99% of the time. We did find out that we need to definitely have a 1 animal house though. She gets pretty jealous when other dogs come in our house. We found a stray in our yard one night and brought him in the basement for the night until we could find a place for him. Mags was pretty unhappy with him here. Luckily our friend down the street took the puppy in, so now Mags is happy again. This puppy is the only other dog we've introduced her to that I've seen her not get along with well. We can't decide if she was upset bc he was getting so much attention from us or if she doesn't like that he won't submit to her. Either way, as long as they both are on leash, they're fine together. We love her so much...when I was on vacation out of the country, I was more worried about her than Kyle. And Kyle is so crazy about her! She got a little scratch on her eye the other day and had some bleeding. I was on call, so he called one of the other docs around to come look at her to make sure she was was 1 am! He keeps saying he doesn't know what he's going to do when she's gone....he said he now understands why people want to clone their dogs...ha ha...we would never do this, but he used to always make fun of people who wanted to do it and now he gets it! Anyway, thank you so much for giving maggie to us. She is one of the best things that has happened in our lives. Talk to you soon. Hope things are going well. UPDATE: Maggie passed away on April 5th, 2009 from a sudden case of bloat, despite immediate emergency hospital care. We mourn her loss along with her family and wish them our best during this sad time.
