Another Summer....another season
As usual I have been so busy I have not been able to return to Maroo's blog to update or add any new information....but as luck would have it, today I was inspired to do so. Well lets just say right off the bat that Maroo is doing awesome! He has pretty much left his old life behind him and has joined the ranks of the North Star group of Tibetan Terriers with proper status :) He has remained well liked by all of my dogs from day one...but instead of the pity in their eyes for him it has changed to admiration! His antics are always something to talk about at the end of the day by his human counterparts, me included....Antics like chasing his tail in the yard until he finally collapses on the ground and begins to role on his back! Another game he enjoys is riding the backs of the larger dogs like a circus pony...and with amazement they allow it! No fighting and no attitudes when it comes to Maroo and the others....they love him and he adores each and every one them! He finds his most enjoyment with the younger guys, "Aiden" and "Tara" just 10 months old themselves.. because of the similar size between them...he enjoys joining in with them on "running games" Oh they can run and run until the cows come home....and would run with them once the "Moo Machines" hit the barn too...LOL~ At night he settles in with the sophistication of a Champion Pekingese...on top of a pillow like a Prince among Princes...never demanding and always quick to lick the hand that feeds him....kisses come with ease from Maroo and he kisses often! You can always find him in the evening above your head on the sofa...wagging his tail to sleep, thinking I am sure of the day's activities behind him...falling softly off to that place where all dogs go in sleep...and me wondering at times, what is he dreaming about? Yes life for Maroo had become so much better I have almost forgotten how he was in those early days....running and hiding from anything that he did not feel safe from....leaving the other dogs at the fence to bark at strangers passing by....but now he is the front runner at that same fence, barking and barking and barking....oh how I love that sound.
