    Maggie is our 5-month-old border collie/Labrador mix puppy. We saved her from the doggie death chamber just before Christmas and we made room in our home and our hearts for her. But now, they assure me, she is terribly lonely.

    It doesn't matter that there are two adults, three children and three cats to keep her company. The only thing, they say, that will make her "un-lonely" is another puppy. And, alas, they've found the perfect one.
