Our Girl, Maezy!

By Georgia Osten
All her instincts come alive. I swear she must wear a watch. She can tell when it’s time to go to the beach each evening. Morning is a no-brainer, as soon as it’s daylight, she’s ready to go. All you have to say is “Let’s go.” She’ll head straight for the garage where we keep the golf cart. During Spring Break, we couldn’t take her down to the beach in the evenings – too much traffic. That’s okay, she dealt with it, she adjusted. We call it “checking off all the boxes.” As we sit on the sofa in the evening, after dinner, there’s one more Outside Call. That doesn’t count the Outside Trip right before we go to bed to read.

There’s always a SNACK after dinner, we’re ready, we know what it means when she comes over to look at us with those big brown eyes, because we can tell time too. Lately, now that the weather is getting a bit nicer and warmer, we enjoy our coffee on the deck. The other morning, she heard a familiar sound. It was Ed’s SUV barreling down our road. Oh my goodness, she turned inside out. She ran to the stairs and watched longingly as he kept on going. She ran back and forth on the deck and back to the stairs – “Is he coming back to see me?” I texted him, but he said there was some sort of disturbance he had to attend to. Ed is with the Crystal Beach Fire Department, it must have been some sort of emergency.

Maezy loves Ed. He and Ange take care of her when we have to go out of town. We think she loves Ed more than us, but we tell her she’s stuck with us, she just has to deal with it. We worry from time to time, because if someone should stop in front of the house in their golf cart, she’s aboard immediately. I think she would miss us eventually, but who knows??

Okay, we admit it! Maezy rules our lives (and we love it!)

A dog is the only thing on earth who loves you more than he loves himself.
