Do you remember when Noah and his sissies got a new sissy named Gertie?
Barney and Storm's mom, Linda, made Gertie!
Our mom saw Gertie and fell in love with her and she wrote to Linda and asked her if she could make us a mini-Maggie!
What is so unique about these doggies is that Linda takes our own dog fur and spins it into the wool so that my new sister, Margaret, is a part of me forever and ever and we think that's pretty special!

Margaret arrived all the way from England this past Saturday!
Mom and Linda had been calling her mini-Maggie for weeks and we knew that we didn't want it to stay that way so we figured Margaret, the un-nickname of Maggie, would be just perfect seeing as she's just perfect! Do you see that blotch on her tail that Mitch is looking at? I have one too!
We're meeting each other for the very first time! Mom couldn't wait to sniff Margaret to see if she smelled just like me! Well, it's not exact - there is a slight perfumie smell to her but she does have a certain "doggie" smell about her that mom is thrilled with!I just love your bandana, Margaret! Maybe we could share?Linda told us early on that we had to save our fur when mom groomed us and we had to keep the tan separate from the black. We did what she asked and mailed her a box of our fur and we have to be honest - some of Mitch's fur was mixed with mine so Margaret actually has both of us in her!
Of course you can nap with me, Margaret!
I love having you as my sissy! I think we're going to be best of friends!
So until next time.................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Your new sister is beautiful, just like you Maggie! I'm glad that you like her and she has the added benefit that she won't steal any of your toys!

Your friend,

That is just the coolest thing - how sweet is Margaret!
Now for goodness sake be gentle Maggie & Mitch, remember Margaret is new and doesn't want to be thrown about or be part of a tug of war just yet!
love you lots

Margaret is sooooo cute and much bigger than we expected! You can have a great snuggle with her, Maggie! Our mom would like to use our furs for needle felting, but she says it's too hard to separate the black from the tan. We offered to do it for her, but she doesn't seem to want doggis slobber all over the furs!

Ours mums is drouling again, at this rate we will use the flashy thingy on her and enter her in a competition, its great and really nots so little, just right for cuddling. Mums tryed trapping out hair in needle felting buts it came out, shes not quite sure why when it never comes out of anything else and she goes around with a constant suply of hair on her cloths.
