We don’t post many photos of a dry Maia, or a clean Maia, or a Maia standing up, or of Maia not in the pond. It’s not a decision that we make; it’s just because she is usually covered in mud or lying down in the pond. We love all those things about her, and we hope you do too.
But look! It’s a photo of Maia, standing up and pretty clean. She doesn’t even have (visible) food in her mouth.
Maia has a presence about her that arrives before her body does at times. We just talked today about how she often feels the most ‘elephant’ out of the girls. Like all of them, there is something very special about her.
