About Me

Welcome to The Weiss House!

My name is Maggie and I live with my husband, Keenan, in Roanoke, Texas.  We have been married since September 2013 and have a lifetime to go. We have three precious fur kids, Bella, Lucy and Murphy.

Bella is our oldest at seven years old. She is a grey and white Shih-Tzu and only weighs twelve pounds. She may be little, she may be little but she is feisty! I got her for myself as a twenty first birthday present. I didn’t know until after I brought her home that I actually got her from a puppy mill breeder. Bella is a very strong determined pup. We love her to pieces and spoil her ever chance we get.

Lucy, our middle child, is a two year old black Labrador Retriever.  Keenan grew up with black labs so he wanted a puppy with a very specific look.  We found a great breeder who only has one litter a year. The mom and dad are family pets and live inside the house.  Lucy is my first large breed dog since being a toddler so it was an adjustment for me at first.  I do believe I’m now a large dog convert, I love my tiny Bella but I don’t think I will get another small breed dog.

Murphy, our youngest, is a Standard F1 English Cream Golden Doodle. Similar to Lucy, we found a small breeder who breeds their family dogs. A standard F1 English Cream Golden Doodle is pretty much a fancy way of saying a first generation mixed breed puppy. Murphy’s mom is an English Cream Golden Retriever, so she is nearly white in color instead of a golden color. Murphy’s dad is a standard poodle with a slight golden color.

If you can’t tell, my husband and my dogs are my whole world. Here you will find posts about our dogs, the therapy work they do, our journey in living an intentional life, and hopefully going tiny.
