I went up to Portland today to take a portrait of a friend and his pup. I first met Maggie about six years ago when she was nothing more than a tiny ball of fluff. A totally cute ball of fluff I might add.

In 2009, Maggie got her certification with Delta Society to become a therapy dog.

Now, every Monday Maggie goes to "work" with her dad as Pet Partners at Our House of Portland HIV/AIDS residential care facility.

According to her dad, she has quite the following and everyone looks forward to seeing her.

She is so darn cute. She posed and posed as I took close to a million pictures (at least I think that is what Alan and Maggie thought).

She rarely took her eyes off of Alan, he rocks her world. That little dog really loves her dad.

She was getting pretty tired of me snapping all of those pictures. I had to laugh as she acquired this cute little sneer at the end. She was gently telling me that she was certain I had captured her cuteness.

Woo hoo! It's time for the Pet Blog Hop.

Maggie is totally gorgeous. Beryl has a very similar little friend except he's kind of white and caramel. Such a cute little man who thinks Beryl is lovely too. Love the sneer;)

Maggie is adorable! Our girls have their own fan club at the nursing homes we visit, too. I can see why Maggie has hers!
