Mental Health Mantra 77/365 and Dog Mantra
This is Maia who is Day 77 of 365 who lives in America.
Maia is a Blue Tick Coonhound mix - Possibly Plott Hound, Cristen tells me.
She recently turned 5.
Cristen tells me "the ironic thing is, she would rarely come near me when I would visit them in their first 8 weeks. Now? She won’t leave me alone. She is also the most vocal dog I have ever experienced. It goes beyond barking. She also talks back when she’s being disciplined. This past week I learned how in tune she is with my emotions and changes in mood. She’s always been that way, but I saw it differently in this specific instance. She will do whatever she can to get as close as possible to me and grab at my arm to distract. She will go as far as climbing on me to sit or lay on my chest. If I can’t handle her doing that, she will lay as close as possible and lay her paw on me. When it comes to other people, she is very reserved and shy."
I would love to meet Maia, she sounds like a real character, plus I would love to meet Cristen as we have been kindreds for about 9 years now.
The photo that was sent to me for Maia's Dog Mantra, captured something in her eyes, the way she looked in the lens, and her dog mantra matched it completely.
Keep making your presence known folks. Keep shining.
