Meet Maya

Maya is my English shepherd. She is four months old. She is my shadow.
Someday Maya will help me with the sheep.
She is sweet and loving and doesn’t leave my side if she can help it. She came to us last weekend from the grace of a CSA member, and for only being on the farm a week she is already one of the gang. I can’t believe how good she is and how well she responds to training. She has pretty much mastered SIT. Stay is another issue. Treats are unnecessary and end up being a distraction because she takes forever to eat them.

She is a little intimidated by the animals but we haven’t given her too much exposure yet, I want to get the basics down first like making sure she knows where she lives and SIT. She is very serious.

I adore Maya....and BIG NIGHT is one of my all time favorite flicks......I eat like a philistine but I love reading about food. Food descriptions in a novel make the book no matter what else is going on. I read restaurant reviews with no intention of ever going to the places reviewed, probably.

Can you read the first comment? What the heck does that say? It looks pretty, so I'm assuming it's a nice note.
