We resued Maggie from a puppy rescue center called Heaven to Earth. Their mission is to save as many adoptable puppies as possible mostly from the Amish, farmers and puppy mills. I have been searching for puppies for a while before I came across this amazing rescue center. When I saw Maggie's face, I absolutely fell in love with her and told JP that we had to call. Since we decided we were going to get a dog when we got up to Pittsburgh, he agreed. It may have been sooner than anticipated, but everything happens for a reason. Once I called the shelter, they told me that we would get to see 3-5 puppies to see which one would be the best fit for us. We chose to see Maggie, Molly, Mason and Moose! Maggie was so lovable and friendly and was the most interested in us! Everything fit just right and we were able to take her home. She is a ton of fun and has a ton of personality. She LOVES the snow and is a little mischievous:
Maggie is a nine week old lab and German Shepherd mix and it looks like she is going to be pretty big! Her birthday is November 16th and will be expecting lots of treats and presents :) Her birthday is actually 2 days after our original anniversary. On November 14, 2006, JP and I officially started dating and on November 14, 2008, he got down on one knee and proposed. It's only fitting that Maggie's birthday is right around that date 2 years later. I'm looking forward to what November 14, 2012 has to offer!
Here are some more pictures of Maggie for your viewing pleasure:

My pretty little girl
Not the best picture of me since it's almost bedtime, but I wanted a picture with my pup!
Family picture! We're all wearing our fleeces!
She loves playing outside, but since she's so tiny and it's FREEZING here, we got her a little fleece coat to keep her warmer.
"What Mom? I'm not doing anything!" Like I said she's quite a handful and loves to get into things. She's very adventurous which worries me when we're outside, but she's just so much fun!
I hope everyone has a great weekend! JP and I plan on having the house completely in place by Sunday night. Then the after pictures will come! The place is really coming together so far. Next weekend I'll be in Houston for the Houston half marathon. I hope to see some of you while I'm there! Until next time...
With love and God bless,
Amy, JP and Maggie
