Happy birthday to Maisie!

Yesterday was Maisie’s 3rd birthday. We’ve had her more than two and a half years now, and we still love her to bits (well, not literally …).

She’s grown up quite a lot in the past year, but especially in the last six months. Everything we’ve read says Old English are puppies until about age 3. There’s still definitely puppy in there, and I’m glad. But having a baby in the house has been a huge adjustment for her. She’s very gentle and caring toward little ones, but she’s likely to flinch and/or walk away when he touches her. All that hair is such a temptation! (We’re working on it.)

Thank you, Maisie, for understanding when you have to wait a bit longer sometimes because the little one needs me. I soooo look forward to the days when you and he can run and play together.

Happy birthday, Maisie! Hope you had a good day, and many more.

  1. What a lovely pup! I can only imagine how tempting it is for your little one to tug on his fur. My littlest one has taken to rubbing our Sadie’s ears (she’s a Rottweiler lab mix) and she is so tolerant.

  2. Love it! She’s such a great dog.

    awwww she’s so cute but I don’t understand how she sees.

    • Well, she’s a little iffy in the seeing department sometimes. If she’s running, the hair flaps up and she can see. Or if she’s outside in the bright sunshine, she can see. Sometimes we use a little butterfly hair clip to pull back the hair over her eyes so she can see more easily (especially in dim lighting). But the hair over their eyes is apparently supposed to help filter the light, to help prevent cataracts (like sunglasses for us).

  4. Happy Birthday Maisie!!!!!!!!! You are such a good puppy…… Glad you are turning into something less puppified!!!

  5. What a sweetheart! Dogs are just the best.

  6. Aw, happy belated birthday to Maisie! She’s a cutie! 🙂

  7. I hope Maisie and Asa grow into great buds!
