Beautiful dog! I am sure he is a great companion. I wish Katie was a little less excitable. I would love to be able to do something like therapy work with her.

Magee is very handsome. He looks like my KC's dad, her mom had more white but the same head coloring.

I kind of thought that maybe he was named McGee for Tim McGee in NCIS (the TV show). Thanks for telling us about him. I hope you go back to Rally Obedience . . . I'd be happy to answer any questions you ever have about it.

I love cavaliers! I've never owned one, but I just have this image in my head that they are the sweetest snuggliest dogs. And it looks like McGee certainly fits that bill. Great pics on your sparkpage!

He is so sweet looking! What a cute puppy! I love that you have worked with him and that he is a therapy dog! That is a goal of mine one day... Thanks for sharing the sweet McGee with us!

He needs to rub off on my clyde, he is a growler. Always has been!

The power to change, the courage to do, the will and drive to be exceptional lies within me, and by leaving my fears, my doubts, and my excuses behind, I embrace all that lies within me.

Nice to meet you McGee. Sophie is right there with you on being a chow hound. She loves her food and has been eating Murphy's if I don't watch her.

McGee actually got his name from his breeder. She said that her mother always called her Fibber McGee from an old radio show. She just thought that McGee fit the name. After we met him, we decided that we liked the name and wouldn't change it. It is also very British/Scottish.

I have taken McGee through all the obedience classes and he is a certified therapy dog. Unfortunately, I have not done much with it except for having him be the motivator for second graders achieving their learning goals. He loved that......and the kids loved him! I also took him through 2 of the 3 Rally-Obedience classes and had planned on taking him through the advanced and on to competition. As most of you know, my husband became very ill and passed away and this goal kind of got away from me.....maybe someday.

McGee is a snuggler and he is always by my side. He follows me from room to room and is a great companion. We love to take walks. He gets very excited when meeting another dog on the trail and I have to make him sit and wait or he would pull me to get each dog. This is something I have to work on constantly with him as he is such a "greeter" and this could be very dangerous if he met up with a dog that wasn't as friendly. He has been growled at before and this scares me to death.

McGee is a chow-hound. I have to watch that he doesn't get too much food or treats. He would eat himself into oblivion if I let him. I have chosen to keep his coat natural except for his paws (hair between pads) and behind his ears. He needs to be brushed regularly to keep the mats away, but I want him to look like his breed and don't want to clip him short. He is very patient while I fuss with him....actually, I think he likes it.

He doesn't bark at all except when I get the vacuum cleaner out. Then it is a big game. I've never heard him growl, so I don't think it is in his "vocabulary". I would trust him with anyone.

So, there you have it..... friend and companion McGee! Thanks for all the attention. He gives you all a snuggle....he doesn't kiss!

McGee is just TOO handsome!

Tell us about him Jan - how did he get his name? How old is he? What does he love to do?

McGee wants everyone to know that he is so happy to be team mascot. There is nothing shy about him. He wants to love and be loved!

Ohmygosh! How precious! You just want to give him a head kiss & cuddle him. I can see how he'd be a wonderful therapy dog. They were called "comfort spaniels" for a reason. Mine is more into seeking comfort though--softest pillows, spots on bed.

McGee is a great name!

McGee...Owned by JANHIM. What a doll! By the way. You should check out the picture of McGee with Jan's Granddaughter on her spark page. One of the nicest pictures I have ever seen.

A dog wags his tail with his heart.

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.
