Welcome, Kelly! Maggie's New Mom!!!
« on: October 31, 2008, 06:10:54 am »
wow, what kind words :)   This is Kelly, new and happy owner of Miss Maggie Mae.  I finally logged on today to find a plethera of information and links..a little overwhelming at first, but I'm happy Stella told me about BPO.
Maggie is doing fabulous!  We couldn't be happier.  As soon as we get a working camera (both digitals have died in the past week!) I'll post some pics of her :)  She is very well behaved and adjusting better than we expected.  She seems so comfortable here even after just 6 days.  She's getting very playful, which is nice to see :) 
Again, thanks for the support!
Miss Maggie Mae, 3

Well we were without a camera for the longest time, so I apologize I didn't post any pics until now! Maggie is doing well, still some issues we haven't quite worked out. We had her spayed a few weeks after we brought her home and she recovered from that well.
She's still gets REALLY hyper when daddy (sometimes me now)comes home, still growls once in a while (although this has gotten loads better), and she seems to pee in the house a lot.  I can't tell if it's a nervous pee (I have seen her do that), but other times when she doesn't want to go outside (cold!), she'll pee just when you're trying to get her out the door!  Can dogs have an overactive bladder, or is this a behaviour problem?  Even with those few things, we love her to death and couldn't be happier.  Thanks for all the kind words!

She is a looker! No suggestions to help with the peeing problem, but I would sure put up with it to have a beautiful girl like that ;) Haha

My Maggie has an incontinent problem and takes pills for them to help her hold her bladder. She's been on them for about 2 years now I believe and she'll be on them for the rest of her life but they have her tremendously, she used to pee in her sleep. Maybe ask your vet about that?
