And what did Maizie get me? She graciously allowed me to give her a bath and wash her bed and blanket. Yes, I did a lot of work. On Mother’s Day. But it was well worth it because I got the best present ever: a dog that no longer stinks! And due to all the fresh and clean excitement — in addition to a long walk — Maizie was just so tuckered out, she had to take a long nap. Which enabled me to take a nice bubble bath and have a martini. Dog Mom’s Day indeed!
