10-year-old Maggie came to our home from ABR last December as the dog with three names. Maggie aka Mandy aka Birdie is now happily answering to the jingle of her harness as we prepare for a walk.

We shake our heads in disbelief that she could really be 10 because her energy level is off the charts. She likes to wear us out as you can tell by the happy smile on her face and the relaxed posture of my husband in this photo from about 5 miles into a hike on a Gunpowder Falls trail in suburban Baltimore, MD.
