Here's a pic of her doing her favorite activity:
You can't really see it in these pictures, but her tongue hangs out of the side of her mouth because she is missing some teeth on the left side... it's very comical but does her no harm...
Here's a pic of Maggie when she was first rescued about 5 months ago... poor thing was starving and infested, badly in need of medical care:
She could still stand a few pounds on her frame, but doesn't she look great? And she's so loving and sweet. She even 'purrs' when she's happy. She makes a grumbly noise, which we call her 'purr'.
Anyway, she's intrigued by the cats, but the interest isn't really mutual, so she has no playmates other than me and Joe. It's a shame she's aggressive with other dogs, as we are surrounded on all sides by houses with dogs, and it would be awesome if she could play with them. Perhaps with some training and aggression therapy, she might become more social with dogs.
She loves people though and has been friendly with everyone who's come over since we got her, even friends who smell of other dogs, like my friend Kathy who has 2 dogs of her own.
We start her training on Weds. afternoon this week with a trainer. Hopefully she will learn her basic commands as well as how to get along with other dogs.
Despite the new 'tasks' to be done like feeding, walking, playing and so forth, I have managed to get a little sewing done... but the operative word here is 'little.' Perhaps when I go on retreat next weekend, I will get more done.
My goals for next weekend:
- Finish the Woodland Creatures borders
- Put the borders on Woodland Creatures quilt
- Do the edge stitching on Marlyn's applique (friend finished making a top and realized she hadn't sewn down her appliques... asked me to do it for her... I'm such a sucker, lol)
- Sew my Saturday Sampler Block for LQS #1
- Applique and sew my Bertie's Year BOM block for April
Busy times coming up, with quilt runs in June and July and the Sisters show in Oregon in July too. I better take advantage of whatever sewing time I can get in April and May because my early summer months are pretty much shot for sewing time. How'd that happen so fast??? and it's not even half-way through spring yet... sigh
Anyway - today is my DH's birthday and I'm taking him to dinner... time to get off the computer and head out... Have a lovely weekend.
