Maize Turns “9”

Livee X Blue 2/28/2012

At age nine, our beautiful, fun and loving Maizie really enjoys her naps—but she is still full of playful puppy energy!  She has a set schedule of when and where she likes to do things.  She can tell time and wants to eat promptly at 7:00 am and 4:30 pm.  She has an expected after-breakfast ritual of getting peanut butter in the 4 sections of her big black Kong bone.  She runs upstairs to find it—and races back down the stairs into the kitchen and drops it on the floor at our feet for service!  Then after that ritual, she expects to shake paws for 2 Quaker Oatmeal Squares and 3 blueberries!  (How did she ever teach us that?!)  She loves to cuddle after breakfast and some days becomes very vocal—almost singing and silly.  She leaves us promptly if she sees a spot where the sun may be shining in on the floor (or on the guest room bed–formerly taboo, but won us over eventually!)  


Squirrel spotting and chasing is her pastime at home.  She sounds ferocious as she protects our backyard from them—but she wouldn’t know what to do if she got one!  She has come nearly nose-to-nose with some on her walks—which becomes a stare-down contest!  She gets a little dish of baby carrots every evening during our dinner meal—doled out one by one–as she lies politely and patiently on her fleece.  Have you ever heard of a dog who asks for a lick of toothpaste every evening at bedtime when she sees me brushing my teeth?! Another ritual!!  Maizie is a happy, healthy girl who brings smiles, laughs and joy to our lives every single day.

Mmmm…carrots and popcorn birthday treats!  Why do you make me wear this silly hat every year?  Actual “Maizie Socks!” (gift from our kids!)

P.S.  Maizie loves packages because they often contain new toys for her!  This one came from Chewy for her birthday!  She can’t keep soft toys though….they turn into multiple pieces very quickly!

We rejoice in the nine years — remembering her being a paper shredder and so much more. Thanks for remembering us and for taking such great care of Maizie.
