Pet-Peeves: Her bro, Orson. He is a pain to her, but she loves him anyway.
Favorite Toy: "Tiny Toys"- small enough for her to hold in her mouth without Orson rudely taking them from her!
Favorite Food: CHEESE!!!!!!!!!!! And, whatever the humans are having!
Favorite Walk: around our 30 acres in Northern Michigan
Best Tricks: She can yodel! She also hides toys, so Orson can't find them.
Arrival Story: Maven was a long-awaited for pup from a reputable breeder, after mourning the passing of my previous Rotties Max, Nazareth, and Vesta. I waited a whole year for her, and drove my co-workers at the animal hospital I work at crazy by carrying her collar and name tag around with me, jingling the tags, and she wasn't even conceived yet!
Bio: Maven was a crazy, wild, beastie of a pup, but after much training and socializing, she is the GREATEST Rottie ever! She is super sweet, and definately changed many peoples perceptions of what a Rottie was. She went to work at the vet's office for the first year with me, but when Orson came along, she had to stay at home. Bummer!! She made herself the official greeter there, and would stand at the counter on her hindlegs and yodel at the familiar people as they came in, and shake hands with them! She loves to have company, and loves to go for rides. Vacations are usually spent in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, in the woods.
In April of 2008, Maven completely tore her cruciate ligament in her left knee. She had a TPLO done on 4/18/08, and we are in the process of healing her up! She has a partial tear in the right, so we are doing our best to protect that one, and have her on a diet to lose some excess pounds. Right now her appetite isn't very big, but once she is further down the road to recovery, that is bound to change!! All of our Dogster friends have been fabulous, sending Rosettes, Stars, Prezzies and warm wishes. A couple have even gone above and beyond, by actually sending real gifts, like Chaz, Jack, Bubba, and Lucy from Yuma, AZ, and Satiba from Richmond, California. I am so happy we found Dogster, and all these wonderful pups and their peeps!!!!
OK, I have to admit that it isn't a surprise since I am on the board of administrators. But, I was voted by all my co-admins at Rotties Rule to be Ruler of the week! I was pretty shocked to see my name on the list we voted from, and I voted LAST for myself! Despite that, here I am! It really makes me happy, and I will do my best to be a Pawsome Ruler! Thanks RR admins, I loooooooove you too!!!!!!!
I received a lovely star from my sisser The Bunny, and this P Mail too~

All Hail Maven
oooh, I got Tag-Teamed! My new Pal Walker, AND my Sisser Jasmine both tagged me!
So, after I answer my questions, I will be getting 7 others! Look out , puppers! hehehee!!! Here are the rules:
Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged, need to post in their diary the rules and their 7 pawsome facts. Then choose some dogs to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to bark them a pmail that they have been tagged and to read your diary, or, send them a fun Rosette announcing they've been Tagged!
1. I am not quite so Strunchy as I look, I am just a serious faced girl, but I like to have fun too!
2. I loooooove to have mom blow the hairdryer on my bootae, and rub on me! It makes me wayyyy happy! Go figure, hehee!
3. If you sit in the recliner or on the sofa, you can plan on me being on top of you in a matter of seconds! I am a Lap Dog!
4. I can hear a cheese wrapper crinkle from 2.5 miles away, hehee!
5. I can eat anything twice as fast as my brudder, Obud!
6. I know allllll my toys by name, Mom will tell me to go get Orange or Pink Bobo, and I will go find it, no matter where it is!
7. I love my sweetie Dante!!!
I am going to tag......Sophie, Tess, D Day, Sadie Lady, Syd, Parker, and Thorn! (but if you've already been tagged, don't feel like you have to do it again :) )
Today is my fifth birthday, so mom started it out right, and gave me what we like to call "B&B", breakfast in bed! Then we came here to Dogster, as we always do, gotta see what all our pals have been up to during the night. Sheesh, you guys have been busy already! You other pups should come see our group, Rotties Rule- My sisser Bunny (aka Satiba) started up a birthday thread, and she and my Dante Dawg have added some really great songs to the Player on our page, Radio ROTI. All for meeeeee!!!!!!!! I am loving it!!!!!
AND I have already started getting some great prezzies, like a fabulous delicious Cake from my sisser Bunny, some fun and pretty Balloons from Bogey, Tucker, Dante, Parker, Baron and Sully, and my so-far-fave, a beautiful Golden Bone from my sweetie, Dante! You have great taste, my dear, especially since you chose me, hehehe!!! Kisses and hugs to all of you, I love love love them!!!!!!!
I can hardly wait to see what the rest of this day has in store for me. Yeah, I know I am gonna have to wear one of those stupid pointy hats, and have mom sticking her camera in my face, but as long as I get prezzies and cake, it will all be worth it!
If only mom didn't have to work, the day would be ideal, but she will be home soon, and then the fun will really start! I can hardly wait to see what my sisser sent me, that box has been tempting me for days!!!!
Love and licks to alllllll my Dogster pals and family!!!!!
