Maisie The Cuddle-Doodle

by Kris Phillips

After growing up with pets Meghan developed an allergy to them. Talk about heart-break! I truly can’t imagine a life without dogs. Being a life-long animal lover Meghan refused to accept a fur-free life and set out on a mission to find a way to share her days with a sweet fur-ball.

Lucky for Meghan there are a few breeds considered “hypo-allergenic”. That’s when the real challenge began. She combed shelters and rescues but found the hypo-allergenic rescue dog market to be about as hot as the Denver real estate market. So after much research and some social media semi-stalking she found a reputable breeder of the ever-so-awesome Goldendoodle!

Little Miss Maisie was born just after New Years. And when Meghan went for a sneak peak of the litter the other pups were too busy having fun to notice the interesting stranger. But not Miss Maisie! She strolled right up to Meghan, rolled over and said “pet my tummy! You’re my human now, let’s go home”. I’ve always been a believer that in one way or another pets choose their people and even as tiny as she was Miss Maisie made it clear that she chose Meghan.

While she’s still a playful pup, I was amazed at how well mannered and gentle Maisie is. Ever the cuddle bug.

Always ready to play, this cutie-pup bunny hopped all over the lawn in pursuit of the ball. 

I’m not going to lie, this may very well be one of my favorite Fall photos I’ve ever taken! 

Maisie is such a teddy bear of a dog, who would be enamored with that adorable fuzzy-butt.

I think it’s safe to say that Maisie chose Meghan and has no interest in ever leaving her side whatever life throws at them…unless it’s tennis balls. And then she’ll be right back.
