Margaret of Scotland
Maggie was named for Margaret of Scotland, whose feast day falls in November -- the month that Maggie was brought to us as a gift (!) from a dear friend and former rector. We selected one of the three female saints with November feast days in the BCP calendar, choosing from Hilda, Margaret, or Elizabeth. Not long ago someone asked us, "Oh, you named her for the character in The Simpsons?" Not hardly.
I know I'm not the first to post on the birthday of a dog this summer. Dogs, after all, teach us much about unconditional love. Happy birthday, Maggie.
