Maggie likes to get rest despite wanting to go for a walk almost every minute of everyday. I put these cool eye shades on her last week and although she thinks they are a little strange for a dog, she is most often happy to stay lying on the floor.
I feel very fortunate that I have a dog that is calm most times of the day. She gets excited when she sees her leash or when one of us come home from being away, but for the most part, she’s mellow and peaceful. For this reason, I enjoy bringing her with me to many destinations/appointments because I know that she’ll most likely just relax while I accomplish my tasks.
As I tell most people, “she chose me”. I got her from a friend of a friend whose family was getting divorced and no one could take her into their new homes. I was all set to get another dog from the shelter, but 24 hours before I was scheduled to go get that dog, Maggie appeared from her foster mother. They say that it’s important to identify the temperament of a dog before you choose them per Cesar Milan, but I didn’t have a choice in this situation. It was just pure luck. After just spending a few hours with her, I knew she was meant for me.
