Kim over at Homesteader's Heart hosts Show and Tell Saturdays! I haven't participated until now. How could I not since I just posted my WW about my pooch!?! The theme this weekend is my favorite furry friend! I though it only fitting to give a littls back ground on our girl Maya !
Maya is a shepard/sharpay mix! She is @ 2 years old now. We got her from Animal control. She was a stray that they had picked up. We fell in love with her the first time we saw her. She was scared to death! Her ears where laid back, and she crouched every where she walked. I can only imagine what she had been through. She was about 6 mo. old when we got her. In the kennel we couldn't tell what she was mixed with. She was so sweet. We had not had good luck with dogs in the past, so were a bit cautious to say the least, but we took a gamble and it paid off in a big way!! When we got her home and she settled in, she got more excited and comfortable. As soon as that happened, the ears popped up and out came those wrinkles on the forehead! We looked at each other and with out a doubt shouted... "Sharpay!" (can you tell we are HSM fans, I have no idea how to spell the dog breed!) We didn't have to potty train her either. I don't know if she was a stray long enough or what, but she refuses to go in the house. She will bark and whine till you get off your butt!! She is the sweetest dog you will ever meet! She loves the kids to death! She listens, lets the kids hang on her, and loves the baby!! She is very loyal! Careful, if you come over you may get licked to death!! Thanks Lord for our faithful friend!!
