The First Day

I was cleaning out my phone's camera to keep the gods in the icloud happy when I ran across the first two photos of Macy Blue. I wished I had kept the photo of her from online...but it disappeared before I thought of it. I never thought I would share these...they are horrible photos. But last night, I was hiking with Sue and her mom and we were watching Macy eat grass in the about forty yards away.

My hiking buddy said, "She so cute! She's so LITTLE!"

I nodded my agreement and my friend added, "It's a good thing they didn't have a height chart in the cells at Doggy Jail, or you might would've left her there!" 

It's true. I didn't want a dog this small. She was standing on her hind legs beckoning me over and when I stepped toward her, she dropped to the ground. And I stopped in my tracks! OH! She's so small!!! Do I want a dog that small???

She jumped back up to see what was keeping me and I just knew - I want HER!


It's been a lovely five months getting to know this baby...her quirks, her fears, her unjustified confidence leading the pack down a trail. The song she sings at 2 am. Her passion need for coffee and kale. Her joy at having friends and sudden jealousy when I pet her friends. Her growing fondness for certain humans...

She looks so different from that first day with staples in her neck and wounds on her ear. Her coat was dull and gray and blowing out by the handful.  Now, she's shiny and beautiful. Her coat and skin are so healthy. She's loving her long walks and good food and scraps from my plate. 

We've come a long way since that first day. What fun it is to be seeing my world through new eyes again!
