Literacy Maizy


On Saturday Maizy and I headed off again to the library so that children could practice their reading with her. Three kids showed up and Maizy heard a variety of books and especially enjoyed the attention of the library staff who fussed over her for several minutes before and after she went to work. It was great. Additionally, she acted like a big sulk when I made her go sit by "her sign" instead of letting people pet her for a minute. She refused to look at me or sit right. This is the best picture that I got. She is a pain in my butt.

Good for me, also, because I left the library with the new addition of a library card! I will go back sometime soon without Maizy so that I can browse. :)

Maizy has a vet appointment tomorrow so that her knees can be checked out. She is having some mobility issues that we are hoping to find a solution for. Maizy's unofficial (since we don't know the real date) 5th birthday is this week: January 15th! She is an ol' lady.

I love that literacy program. I wonder if one of the libraries around here do anything like that... I think I'll have to do some research.

I sure hope that the mobility problem has an easy fix. Yikes. Good luck at the vet tomorrow.

I think Dannan is about five, too. Hard to believe!

It is hard to believe how quickly pets get "old"!
