The temps have hit the 60s. I know it may not last quite yet, but Maizie and I took full advantage of it by taking a long walk yesterday evening. Everyone else in the neighborhood had the same idea — get the dogs out of the house to ease cabin fever! We played with a chocolate lab mix, a little boy, and my new favorite neighborhood dog: an 11-week-old boxer puppy. He’s about 1/4 the size of Maizie, but he’s a spunky little thing. He spent most of his time literally “boxing” Maizie in the face, and she wasn’t quite sure what to do with herself — for once. His owner kept apologizing, but I didn’t mind. Maizie needs another pup to beat up on her from time to time.
