Name: Meggie Nickname: Megs Age: 4 weeks [Born Christmas Week] Breed: Burnese Mt. Dog Gender: Female Personality: Megs is really a joy to have here at IGS. She's so different from Des, a previously purchased Burmese from Godolphin. She can be really lazy sometimes, but when she's in the mood can be an energetic bundle. No matter her mood though, she's always a friendly dog that will simply relish in the prescence of your company. Beth even lets her sleep in her bed with her!
