Pet of the Month

"🎶Wake up Maggie I think I got something to say to you! 🎶"*

And that is 'Why' Maggie you are The Why Not Travel Store's Pet Of The Month for March!!


Life started out bad for Maggie. At around 11 weeks old, and with her head and legs bound by duct tape, Maggie was thrown out of a truck. But at that point, her luck changed for the good because Maggie landed in her new forever home’s owner’s heart. She was in a bad way when she was thrown out, landing in the yard of a friend of her future mum's, so future mum decided just to keep her and get her well. 


It was a long, long time before she learned to trust other people and now she is known by almost everyone in Why, especially the snowbirds in the RV park next door, whom she now visits daily for loves, pets and treats. 

"🎶The morning sun, when it's in your face really shows your age
But that don't worry me none in my eyes, you're everything🎶"*

She is an elderly girl but she still gets around! Her daily routine now is long walks to The Why Not Travel Store in the morning for Buddy Biscuits, naps, long walks in the desert, naps, more walks to visit her snowbird friends at their happy hour retreat and getting fed treats, naps, waiting for the UPS driver to come with her treat (Man, who doesn't??​), more naps and then bed. 


When she gets away from Why while traveling with her mum in their RV, her favorite place to go is the Oregon Coast where she can run into the ocean and chase the seagulls. She doesn't care much to play with toys or balls anymore since she lost her companion dog 5 years ago but always loves meeting visiting dogs who she can walk with.


Congratulations Maggie!! You have earned the honorary title of the Why Not Travel Store’s Pet of the Month.  Your mum will receive a $50 gift certificate to the Why Not Travel Store.


Wait!! There's more!! Because Maggie was rescued, The Why Not Travel Store will be donating $100 to a local rescue operation that is still TBD. We will update the POTM page when that happens.


"🎶You stole my heart but I love you anyway!! 🎶"*
