1. How did you and Maxine find each other? After I lost my Australian Shepherd, Cody, and my kids were clamoring for a new dog, I told them absolutely not--I needed a long time to heal. Within weeks I was making clandestine visits to the local animal shelter. My husband still teases me about receiving my guilty phone call:
"Um, can you come see this really sweet dog?"
"At the animal shelter--I just happened to drive by--really--I didn't mean to!"
Loud laughter on the other end of the phone.
2. What makes Maxine's tail wag? Family, friends, visitors, food, play, walk, run...basically life!
3. What's your all-time favorite dog story? There are so many great dog stories, but I think I'll have to go with Farley Mowat's The Dog Who Wouldn't Be (smile-one of my favorites too!)
|Take me out, and I'll be good|
1. Sit and stare
3. Sigh, loudly and repeatedly
5. Look at door (message: "OUT, NOW!") next to my computer. Look at me. Look at door. Look at me. Repeat as needed.
6. Put snout under typing arm and flip hand off the keyboard, then smile and wag.
It's hard to keep saying no after all that effort.
