My Sister Maggie

Mom thought it might be a good idea if I were to blog about the other furry, attention grabbing, snack gobbling and bone snatchers that I share my  home with.

Today, I thought I would introduce you to Maggie.  Maggie is a Pomeranian, that when soaking wet, weights in at a whopping 3 pounds.  


Her birthday is September 14, 2000.

~waggy tail~ I know you are never suppose to talk about a girls weight or age, but since I have already told you her weight, I also thought I would spill the beans about her age…Yep, she’s 11 and this year she will be 12!! ~waggy tail~


Maggie started losing her eye sight last year.  Although it is getting progressively worse this year, it has not slowed her down in the least!


I know she looks cute and adorable, but don’t let her looks or size fool you…


She can be quite mean…at least to me!! 

To the humans she is quite social and tilts her head to the side that seems to melt their hearts.  I don’t get it. 

She never is nice and kind to me and if I see her heads start to tilt, I am on a fast sprint to get away from her before I can see the glimmer on her teeth!!


That teddy bear looking face, that all finds adorable, hides little mean growls and  razor sharp teeth…she only reserve those for me!!  Grrr.  Are you seeing a pattern here?


She loves to go on trips with us…I don’t love it so much because she always tries to steal my spot in moms lap. 

Did I mention that I nicknamed her Walter??  She acts like an old man with all that growling at me!  I wish the above picture  had sound, cause you would know what I was talking about!


My favorite thing about her is when she sleeps!!  As long as I don’t step on her, things stay calm!

Oh, and stealing her snacks!  She is a slow eater and losing her eye sight, which is a win win for me!!  I can always sneak in and get an extra snack or two….it usually involves lots of growling and snipping on her part, but when snacks are involved, I can be mighty brave!


That's the ins and outs of Walter, aka Maggie!!

I really do like having a sister…I will even go there…and say I love her….kinda….

Even though she growls at me most days, I think she really does love me as well!!


I think!!


  1. Oh Higgins! I think underneath all that fur Maggie really does love you! I do love your nickname for her though!! BOL!

  2. Hi Higgins. Wow, Maggie is that old and she's kept herself in top shape.

    Dogs are really amazing in adjusting to disabilities. When people lose a leg, their life completely changes. A dog having a disability can still enjoy his/her life as if nothing had happened. Even though your sister is losing some of her sight, I'm not surprised she hasn't slowed down.

    Doggies are soooo awesome!

    Huggies and Cheese,


  3. 3 pounds?! Maggie is itty bitty compared to the "monster" on my couch! ;)

  4. Holy dog! My ear weights 3lbs. It was nice to meet Walter.

  5. I'm sure she does! She is so cute

  6. Aww that was sweet Higgies. I think Mag Pie loves you deep, deep, deep. deep, etc down ;)

  7. Hmmm. I think that puppy looks like it can put up a pretty good fight. Even if she is going blind. I always run away with my tail between my legs if a little one growls...I see your frustration.

  8. You are right, Maggie is adorable and probably also crabby. We know where you are coming from - right Dinah?
    We have to be nice to the little old ladies of this world, bet she loves you really Higgins!

  9. wow Higgins your sister is just 3lbs, my foster sister is 140lb. Big high five on the snack stealing, I love to do that too!


  10. Goose's comment is hilarious! Maggie is kind of cute...but we know sometimes that also means .... sneaky! Snack stealin! Great idea!

  11. Of course she loves you, your her baby bro! I love my brother, most of the time, hee hee ;)

    Chi kisses, Lilibell

  12. Oh yes, we know what you mean about the cute, vicious ones :)Tiny mouths pack some punch. You are sneaky too with stealing treats and all...Love it! Maybe I can try that out on my elderly cousin (evil) Tinkerbell.


  13. Higgins, we loved this post - the photographs were great and I have to say, I did have a few chuckles while reading your take on your sister! it was very witty. I would have a bit of a problem with sharing my space but I guess with the 'older ones' we have to be patient - even if they do use all their wily ways to get the two legged ones to think they are all cute and innocent!
