How it Began
For more than twenty-five years I worked as an advertising, marketing and public relations executive. For most of those years, I owned my own firm. About ten years ago I felt it was time to move from the extremely fast pace of a full-service advertising and public relations firm to the position of a consultant with a home office. Not only was this a successful business move, but it also allowed me to spend time with my beloved Shelties, Maggie and Zoe.
In 2009, I lost Maggie to kidney disease; and it was devastating to me. After a few months of inconsolable sadness,
I felt that a puppy, which I had not had since my adult son was a little boy, might help ease the pain. Thus Lucy, a Merle Sheltie with one blue eye, came into our lives. Lucy, the puppy, was fun and challenging; and today, at five, she is a wonderful, loving companion.
With a no commute to work each day, more time became available to me. I decided to combine my love of dogs with my love of sewing, and Maggie and Me Design was born. The first creations were quilted handbags made as Christmas gifts, to which dog fashions were added. Subsequently, a line of doggie sports fashions were developed so that fans could put their dogs in their favorite team colors.
With a growing line of bags and other items for humans, as well as continually updated doggie fashions, we are prov-
iding quality accessories to those who appreciate having a one-of-a-kind and who treasure their dogs enough to dress them in a quality outerwear.
All Maggie and Me fashions are individually sewn by me. No mass production of look-alikes. If you don't see something you like, let us know what you would like (costume or other special item),
and chances are I can make it for you.

Zoe and Lucy
On August 16, 2015 our beloved Zoe died peacefully in her sleep at age 15. Within two weeks we had adopted Little Ricky as companion to Lucy. Little Ricky was found under a blueberry
bush in GA and shipped to RI for adoption at the East Greenwich Animal Protection League. We believe he is German Shepard and Airedale Terrier. He is extremely lovable, but, of
course, wild like all puppies. I am sharing our puppy kindergarten experience with you on Sandy's Snippets. Hope you enjoy it.
