I would like to introduce myself to the "post your dog or cat" group. My name is MJ (short for Mary Jane) and this is my 12 year old Border Collie, Maggie May. Maggie has been part of our family now for ten years since we found her as a stray in Eastern Oregon. She is not only our good friend, but she takes care of the barn and the horses, and has been a great trail blazer and hiking partner. Our daily excursions have become somewhat modified due to her age, but as long as she still gets excited about the key words like walk, truck ride or hike we'll gladly get her out there to do a little sniffing. This photo taken on a hike last fall just north of our home in Mancos, Colorado.
