Maya today, 18th March

Well, we have had our baby girl three weeks now and can see how she’s grown.

The above were taken by our neighbour on March 9th.
These are today’s

Today has seen her introduced to two new tastes.
This is her enjoying her first piece of toast

The other was Tabasco, something we do not want her to enjoy as it’s a deterrent to chewing where she shouldn’t, like in the car, door stops, or furniture legs. Barney had a thing about wallpaper and stripped the walls twice, so when we re-papered, we mixed tabasco with the wallpaper paste, and he left it alone whereas Maggie was an angel and didn’t do such things!
She was not impressed, so we’re pleased about that.
She’s growing up fast!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I love her ears lol

  4. Good morning Maya should have her growth by 6 months after she that she filled out. I get my doggy fix by following Maya process. Stay safe!

  5. I couldn’t resist her either. I bet she gets away with stuff.

    • We let her get away with some stuff, but not all. It can be a battle of wills and I’ve lost it twice with her mainly because I’ve been tired and she won’t settle. However, after each sleep it’s a new day so not carried over. We can’t fully remember Barney or Maggie’s behaviour this young, but that’s 1995 and 2005 respectively!!

    She IS growing! I hope the Tabasco works… Ranger loved yogurt – which we let him lick out the remains of the carton. He also was enamored of pumpkin pie which was NOT on the menu except when he managed to snag it from the counter….

    • The tabasco deterred her yesterday so we shall dab a few drops on the plastic on our next trip.
      Maya likes the yogurt pot too, as did Maggie and Barney before her.

    She is so adorable, Di! That face is just beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. She has grown fast!

    • and still growing Jane. We can expect her to double in size, but we’re not worried. I’ve had shepherds before, but never one from a puppy.
      At 5 months now, she’s bigger and heavier than Maggie ever was!

      • I’m sure she’ll be sweet tempered though. Finbar topped 30kg and the strength in those back legs was phenomenal. 30kg of pure muscle, not a gramme of fat and hardly any fur! I’m not sure I could manage a galgo puppy. They’re like the adults on speed. Maya looks like the kind of dog who will learn to fit in with people and what they expect. You should have an easier life!

      • We hope so. Her temperament is wonderful. She loves people and always wants to play with the other dogs. She just gets too excited and being so big (currently 21kg) she could do some serious damage to a little one. We’ve seen her Dad in action and he’s spectacular. He’s a trained protection/security dog and goes to shows and displays.
        Our next job is to replace the gates for higher ones!
