Born on the 4th of July!

DH is really getting into the blogging mentality. Yesterday he suggested a much better subject for the 4th of July than the one I had posted. Maggi, our 6-year-old "mongrel" dog, was born on the 4th of July and is of mixed breed. This is similar to the mixed ancestry of most Americans and certainly is parallel with the members in our own small family who can lay claim to African American, Belgian, Dutch, French, German, Irish, Italian, and Native American ancestors. Now that's truly USA!!

  4. Maggi looks beautiful. I personally think mongrels are the way to go! We have two mongrel cats. :-)

    I'm glad you're enjoying my Villigen blog. I've been thinking that I should send you some door photos, but I just haven't had time to organize my collection.

  5. Oops, I got confused about the doors blog. I see it mentioned when I visit you, so I thought you were the owner.

  6. Gosh, Kate, that is a fine looking dog. His coat is slick and shines and what a nice expression on his face. I really love dogs and this is my favorite kind. The mixed breed not only live longer, usually, but are better in other ways. This is my winner too.

  9. Well I liked yesterday's 4th July posting but I like this one BETTER! Gorgeous dog and great choice, especially with the neck-gear. Maggie is a absolutely beautiful dog and with such an intelligent look in her eyes.

  10. Maggi seems to be a very patriotic mongrel. She looks like a very happy soul -- she must have gotten some of the barbeque.

  18. What a cutie! I think that, from the intense stare that she's giving toward the left, that some sort of treat was supposed to be the reward for a good pose.

    You're right, we are a melting pot, just as they told us in history class.

  19. Maggie is a dear! You can tell there is a little bit of hero worship in whom ever she is looking at...that or they have a tasty treat all ready for her.
