In Memory of Maverick (2003 – 2016)
Maverick, my Heart Dog, was my one constant through all my ‘adult’ changes in life – jobs, apartments, relationships, etc. He was my outlet for laughs, fun, entertainment, and unconditional love. To top it off, he was as cute as a real life teddy bear. I would often look at him with awe that he was real and all mine.
It wasn’t just me that loved Maverick. He was the type of dog that people remembered and fawned over because his personality and temperament were so extraordinary. Shelties are characteristically shy and timid but Maverick was far from it. He would whimper until I allowed him to greet every dog on the street, and he would say hello to all people without any qualms.
There was “something about Maverick”, people would say, which is a grand understatement. He will always be remembered and loved.
