Mia & Khloe


I’d like to introduce you to my girls, Mia and Khloe, otherwise known as Trouble and Double Trouble. Only Kidding – well, maybe not. I do after all walk them almost everyday, pick up their you-know-what and clean their feet, so they don’t track dirt all over my house. This list could go on and on…

Khloe and Mia

What do I get in return from these two silky, little King Charles Spaniels – love. Endless and unconditional love. Whether I’m gone for ten days, or just ten minutes, they’re always at the door with wagging tails to greet me. They never leave my side and comfort me when I’m down. Keep me company when I’m alone and make me laugh when I’m sad. I guess I need them as much as they need me.

Khloe makes me laugh every time she sits

The grandchildren love them too…

  1. Very cute – all of them!

  2. Beautiful!! And I’m not going to show these images to my husband as he has frequently bee starting conversations that start with “if we had a dog…”. It’s not that I don’t want one, I just know that right now for our lifestyle it would be almost impossible to have one due to travels, long days at work etc.

  3. Gorgeous girls Maggie, we are lucky we get to share our lives with animals

    goodness, they are so cute! i want a puppy BUT i like my freedoms and lack of let dog in, let dog out. when i want a nap, i take a nap. when i want to go away, spur of the moment, i go. your two are super cute!!

  5. I was going to say how cute those doggies are–until I saw your grandchildren; they definitely win the cuteness contest! But they all look so lovable, Maggie. I like your agenda too, so funny, though there’s probably truth in that jest. Enjoy your day! ~ Lily

  6. My dog adores me because he views me as his meal ticket.

  7. Cuteness factor – off the charts for the children and the puppies!

    I love the sign and am going to get one of these for myself. Khloe is the best ‘sitter’ I’ve ever seen πŸ˜‰

  8. I knew you’d like the sign πŸ˜‰

  9. Precious babies! And man can I relate to you sign! That really made me laugh! lol. btw….I have the same rug that your pup is “basking” on….small world? πŸ˜‰

  11. Oh, Maggie, I’m so envious! They are absolutely adorable. So are your grandchildren. Khloe sitting *is* very funny. … Thanks for a post to warm my heart tonight. πŸ™‚

  12. They are too divine and I know just what you mean by double trouble – my girls too invented new versions of the twosome act! Despite that (which has become a little better as they get older, or is it that I know them better and am able to intervene before they’re up to too many tricks?) I do think it’s good to have two dogs together, they really do entertain each other, and keep each other company in ways they can’t get from us. Gorgeous pictures, Maggie πŸ™‚

  13. What a lovely, lovely post, Maggie! All your hard work definitely pays off. They look like wonderful companions. πŸ™‚

  14. Maggie, this is a great post. I loved the photos, and the pups are as cute as can be. I especially loved the ones with the kids and the pups. Adorable!

  15. Hallo,

    Sweet greetings, Summer

  16. The card was lovely… Thank you! xx

  17. LOVE!! Double the pleasure! And aren’t they just the best dogs for children? Yours are beautiful. xxx
