#RememberMeThursday with Miss Maizie

 Mom Kim here - linking to the 
#RememberMeThursdar Blog Hop and
wanted to thank
for hosting this blog hop that is
bringing awareness to Pet Adoption.

For those who have not heard this story before-

When Miss Maizie Became a Kansas Pup
In late April of 2017 a Facebook friend- 
some of you may know "Flea"-
first contacted me about a Beagle in need of a new home, asking
me if I knew of someone in the Tulsa area who would be looking for a young, female Beagle?
I had been looking for a female Beagle puppy and in fact, at that time I had a tentative adoption contract on one in another state.
HOWEVER - there was already a contract on that pup waiting to be approved and as luck would have it, 
that first contract WAS approved.  So there was some more discussion then when I saw this picture-
I knew I had made the right choice.
By the age of 8 months, Lucy whom I renamed
Miss Maizie - a pup getting a new start in a new home deserves a new name - knew how to use those beautiful eyes of hers.
Ok, so I didn't go to a shelter to adopt Miss Maizie but I have very few doubts that she would have ended up there or worse.  
And I have no doubts at all that I did rescue her.
Even though her first family took good care of her, because of  their family situation, they eventually became desperate to rehome her.  Lucy/Miss Maizie knew some basic commands and was even potty trained very well but she had that unruly Beagle puppy side that I knew what to do with - that side of her is what could have landed her in a shelter.  After Flea agreed to bring the pup to meet me and my sis in southern Kansas -
Miss Maizie moved here to Topeka with me'n Lady Shasta.

Now for those who may be new since then, here are the
first two posts from when Miss Maizie first moved in.

I also want to thank
for first reminding me of this most impawtent event.

Miss Maizie, we are so happy to read about how you were rescued and now live in your furever home. That picture too would have made us want to rescue you also. Such sweet eyes you have. We hope the word for today is spreading around for Remember Me Thursday. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful day.

What a great story! My sister Jasmine and I were rescued in California and we then moved to Idaho. The other three tribe members are Idaho rescues.

Miss Maizie sure is lucky to have found you and Lady Shasta. She landed in the perfect home for her.

I absolutely love Miss Maizie's story. She is such a beautiful dog and her eyes have me melting.Such a lucky girl to have been found and given a wonderful home.

We had a Beagle named Archie. He had terrible health issue from the start but he was always a happy energetic puppy and full of mischief, as you've experienced I'm sure being a Beagle mommy yourself. He would have never survived puppyhood if we didn't take him and even though he only lived 6 years, it was way more than we expected. I started this blog because of him. I just had to document his goofyness. He taught us so much on how to live life even through adversity.
