She's fluffy and cuddly, but she rules with an iron fist.
Maci let's the others exist only to serve her own purposes.
If she feels like playing, they play.
If not..... the dogs walk away with scratched bloody little noses.
and a little wounded pride.
If she's feeling especially generous, she may let them share her elevated throne.
But not for long, and not often.
This is funny because the dogs, Zeeke & Zoe, came before Maci.
She was the last pet that we fostered for a great animal rescue in Arkansas.
We couldn't part with her.
She will let no other come after her, we've tried a few times.....
Zeeke used to love to run and play in our huge backyard, but he's getting older.
He's VERY high maintenance.
13 years old and loosing control of things that leave us all a little crazed at times.
But when you see this face you tend to forget all the messes.
My little guard dogs!
At 11, Zoe is still...... strangely....... all puppy.
They are a bit spoiled.
But only as spoiled as Queen Maci will allow.
They all have their own beds (...and blankets...)
But for some reason Zeeke preferred Zoe's little pink bed.
And yes, this is how he always sleeps, it's weird.
I feel a little embarrassed every time I walk in a room and find him sleeping.
Zoe will forgo a bed every time. She prefers the warmth of her human subjects.
Who could turn this face away!
In order to get rid of the pink bed Zeeke prefers, I made them one very large dog bed.
Garden Ridge had fleece blankets for $1.99 the day after Thanksgiving.
I measured out the size I wanted (35x35) and sewed all the sides, leaving a enough room on one side to insert stuffing.
And they LOVE, LOVE, LOVE their $4 dog bed.
Here's the part I love, it was $4
These dogs, for being so tiny, are notoriously rough on dog beds.
They go through them fast.
This one I won't mind replacing.
I cringe every time I have to throw out a $15-$30 dog bed.
