Time is suddenly flying & our lil’ girl is a year old.

Mia took her time to warm up towards us. Initially all her communications to us were only through Magic. The only bonding we had, was through food. As a puppy she was quite a fuss-pot & if i happened to get strict with her, she would start howling in such a way that people would think i am ill-treating her or something. Slowly over a period of couple of months she started trusting more, her confidence improved dramatically & she became quite demonstrative in her affection. Now greetings from her each & every time comes with a lot of hugs & kisses. She talks to us through her eyes, with her head slanting & moving from side to side.
Strangers are welcomed with some nasty barking, however if she likes the look of things within 5 mts she would be bringing a ball or a tug & dropping it on their lap & saying come play with me.
She is naughty, in fact very naughty however surprisingly she listens. Even if she is 50 mtrs away from me & i call out Sit down Mia… she will sit.
It’s a pleasure to see her run….. she runs in such gay abandon, it looks as if she is almost flying & just watching her run gives us also a feeling of ‘high” & do i need to say that the happiest one to have a running companion is none other than Magic !!
I call her all sorts of names Maya, Lara, Micky, Bubbly…… actually it doesn’t matter, she responds to all, however i’ve a major regret. I’ve not been able to socialize her with other dogs & people. Anyway this post is for Mia & the joy she brought into our lives. I don’t want any mention of Magic here. However to get it out of my head, the point is that Magic’s growth was without doubt owed to his interactions with other doggies, lots of fights, unlimited play time, which developed into some memorable friendships with some exceptional canines & their exceptional human companions….. unfortunately Mia has missed out on all this.
Can i correct it for Mia ?
Unfortunately the answer is NO.
peace, love & yet another birthday to look forward to !!
