Arrival Story:
Maxie spent her first years in one of Kansas' worst puppy mills, in conditions so horrible that the state finally shut it down in Fall'07. At that time Maxie was nursing two orphan Shih Tzu puppies- who knows how her last litter fared. The authorities turned the rescued bichons over to Small Paws and Maxie's life began. She was fostered by a wonderful family in Michigan. Our Small Paws adoption came through while we were in Canada with Charlie & LouLou. Her Dad didn't want to put this little girl through a scarey plane ride, so we drove all night - through thunder, lightning and tornadoes to her Michigan foster home. Yep, she's worth it.

4 months later, Maxie has just celebrated her first Christmas in her Forever Home. Her coat has come in thick & curly, covering the scars (yes, SCARS!) on her back. The scared little pup is blossoming into a diva. She LOVES going on walks-her tail up and wagging, she takes the lead and positively struts. She likes visiting with all the dogs in the neighborhood, and starts making a mewing sound as we approach their houses. She has her own agenda too-if she doesn't want to go, she plants her paws firmly on the ground and won't budge. She's very affectionate, waking us up with kisses. If she sees Charlie or LouLou getting attention, she muscles in on the action. She still has some timidity with strangers or sudden noise, but little Maxie continues to recover from that horrible Kansas puppy mill. Such courage in such a little pup.

Our pal Sunny Lee 's kitteh Bean went for a walk right before a snow and never came home. All of us are very worried and lending support but Ella definitely took it to the next level. Click catELLA for another look at the awesomeness that is Ella.

Bean, you better come home before we're all in Kitteh drag.

Oh, I almost forgot: the funniest thing in this sad lost Bean story is Dat Charlie my fluffy white brofur is now In LoooOOOOOOOVE with Ella. Seriously. Say it wif me pups: DELUSIONAL.

Yesterday, a very sweet friend of ours Shana went to The Bridge - suddenly, shockingly. She was just being a dog-curious, inquisitive, joining in the hunt and eating the spoils. In this case, it was a long-forgotten pill canister of migraine meds. They didn't even belong to Shana's guardian.

Things have a disconcerting habit of fading into the scenery. We set things down "just for a minute" and walk away and *poof* they're out of our consciousness. As a matter of fact, last night, a headache threatened after crying about this. I picked up a bottle of ibuprofen to take upstairs as we began the bedtime ritual. EVEN WITH THIS FRESH IN MY MIND, I unthinkingly set the bottle down on a table low enough for one of the pups to get into it. Thank goodness, I caught this on the third stair, turned around and picked up what could have been the next proverbial accident waiting to happen. So easy to do, so mindless.

Today I crawled around the house on all fours (not easy on these old knees, and god knows not a pretty sight) seeing things from a dog's eye view. A stray pencil, eyeglasses, an iPod, a just-delivered box of Valentine chocolates. So easy to miss, all potential for an ER Vet visit. Or worse.

Pups will be pups. It's up to us, their guardians, to keep them safe. In memory of sweet Shana and her grieving family, PLEASE take a look around and pick up after yourself. It only takes a moment.
