And so, now Maeve...
With this in mind, we welcome Maeve. She spent the first year of her life unwanted, discarded and wandering. Someone finally called animal control, but in rural Kentucky, controlling the stray dog population usually has a pretty grim outcome for the dogs. But someone was watching over Maeve, and rescue swooped in (www.stopthesuffering.org). Maeve's future prospects grew brighter. She came to Ohio in February and had a loving foster home with a lovely lady, and for the first time, she had a soft place to lie down at night and food that was given to her every day, and medical care, and baths, and loving attention. And then I saw her on Petfinder. I wasn't looking for a Great Pyrenees. I was looking for a Golden Retriever, but Maeve kept coming up. I even requested an application from another rescue for another dog, but there was a delay, and that dog disappeared from the online list, so I inquired about Maeve.....and now she's here. She can't be officially ours until next week, but we feel like she's ours already. I know she appreciates the soft beds and the regular food supply and the big yard and her new little buddy, Maggie, but the thing she likes best is love and attention, demonstrated by belly rubs, neck scratching, and head rubbing. She is relentless in her pursuit of affection, and once you start petting, she tries her hardest to never let you stop, and she is pretty irresistible. So, if you come by to visit her, be prepared to stay a while.
Welcome to the family, Maeve. We love you already.

I have had the great pleasure of meeting Maeve, who is sweet and docile and loving. What a terrific disposition she has! And she is also a great beauty of a dog. While I will sorely miss Teddy-boy the Golden Retriever forever, you couldn't have found a sweeter dog, Dana, than Maeve to welcome into your home. Maeve has won the super lotto of dog homes with you and your kind husband Art and sibling Maggie, which Maeve deserves after all she has been through thus far during her short life. She survived her rough beginnings with fortitude and grace, staying sweet-tempered and welcoming to strangers despite all she has been through to survive on her own. A win-win for all of you. I look forward to giving many pets to sweet Maeve in the future. Congratulations on the newest member of your family!
