At six months Maggie has finally learned that the swinging door between the kitchen and dining room is not a barrier for her. It happened one day when we were eating in the dining room. We saw her nose push the door and before we knew it she had joined us in the dining room. She was sooooooo excited! Happily she has been house trained and I can only hope this will continue. She loves roaming around the house and smelling things that are new to her.
On the negative side my freedom has been compromised. Maggie follows me throughout the house and at night she loves to lay in bed with me and watch tv.
It is a struggle to get her off the bed at night and put her downstairs in her crate for the night. We will see whose will is stronger, but I have a feeling I already know the answer to that!

It's been awhile since writing in this blog. Maggie is approaching the six month mark. She is acting like a big girl, really understanding what is going on around her. We have started to let her roam more freely around the house. I kinda wonder if she is thinking, where did this part of the house come from???

She certainly likes having more freedom and likes to be with us more then sitting in the kitchen by herself. We have not gotten to the point of letting her wonder the house if we are not home. I would be afraid that she might make herself too comfortable and get used to sleeping on someones bed. So I checked on her when things got a little too quiet and discovered her eating my dried flowers in the living room. I can't imagine they tasted good, but she decided that it was her afternoon snack and I had quite a mess to clean up!
So much for giving her some freedom !!!
