so tiny... remember (Maggie 2)
Am a part-time librarian and graphic artist. Also spend the day watching my youngest granddaughter who just turned 4. Married to my best friend (that always sounds so trite but it is true), have 4 grown children and 6 grandchildren. Love camping, bike riding, reading, knitting, crocheting, crafts, computers and scrap booking. We just lost our Brittany Maggie who was such a joy.
The next page in my Maggie book is photos of when she is really tiny. I have about 6 other pages I have done of her when she was super small that I will include after this one.
Maggie was born January 1, 2001. As the runt of the litter. Her littermates kept crowding her out and as the pups got a little bigger they picked on her a lot. Jody, the lady we got her from, made sure she got enough to eat and protected her from her siblings. It really affected her because she never liked other dogs until she got to know them really well. She was fine with Keisha, Dylan and Sage, but pretty much every other dog was no friend of hers.
We picked her up when she was 6 weeks old. She was so scared riding in the truck and even though I was holding her close, she wimpered all the way home. It took quite a while and a lot of rides to get her used to going in the car. She did learn to love it and would be so happy to hear “Want to go for a car ride, Maggie?”
She was really easy to housebreak. She was almost there when we got her and in a few short weeks she was completely “potty trained”. It was February and the ground was covered with snow when we got her. As Spring came & the snow melted she would run and find a patch of snow to potty on. We had quite a time convincing her that it was OK to go potty on the grass.
Right from the beginning she and I had a rapport that was amazing. She loved to snuggle and would sit with me just about as long as I could hold her. My kids were all grown up when she came to live with us and she was our empty-nest baby. She was
such a cheerful little thing and so smart and good. She learned things so quickly and knew what was expected of her, even though she sometimes wouldn’t do it our way.
