Macie, My Sweet German Shepherd Dog Grand-Puppy!

I thought my daughter Cari was completely out of her mind when she decided she had to get a German Shepherd Dog puppy! Why? Well, she was in a Masters program at the time, she worked full time, and was on-call all the time. Oh and did I mention she was living back at home for awhile? She talked a good game and we agreed to help her with the puppy. She went on a trip to meet the breeder and picked out a nice little puppy which she named Macie. At the time, the puppy was only 10 weeks old so she was in pure puppyhood!

I'd been around large dogs with not a lot of success in the past. I have very bad balance and large dogs tended to be rowdy and knock me over. Not good! But little Macie never, ever jumped up on me roughly. She is one of the gentlest, sweetest pups I've ever seen.

By the time Macie was six months old, she didn't leave her Gramma's side whenever her mommy was gone. When she is staying with me now, she still doesn't leave my side. She follows every step I take. I don't think she would let anyone dare to mess with Gramma!

Her favorite toys are any stuffed animal, her ball, and anything that squeaks! One of her favorites is my son's ancient baby toy, Chime Bird, which is a hard plastic bird that makes a musical sound when it's tipped.

Tell you one thing, Macie has one scary bark! Nobody would come into MY house uninvited, that's for sure! She is one very big girl now! When she stands up now, she is as tall as her mama and me. She has a nappie kennel that's the size of a small playhouse!

Her mommy has been teaching her tricks! She can shake, double-shake, and lie down then roll over. Very smart girl! Now if I could just teach her to retrieve dropped objects! I taught her to catch treats in her mouth.

She's gramma's and grandpa's baby, that's for sure! At least when her mommy is away, that is. We adore Macie!

Cari moved into her own home some time back, and Macie is now almost 3 years old! She has turned into an incredibly beautiful and smart dog. Unfortunately she has some issues – she is very afraid of children (for no reason we know). She also does not get along well with large dogs, but does fine with smaller dogs (like her sister Winnie the Schnauzer and all three of my Miniature Schnauzers, who helped raiser her!)

If I could have another dog, I would go to the breeder and get one of her relatives for myself! Now I just get to see Macie and Winnie when I go to visit my daughter and I miss them both terribly! But occasionally my daughter goes on a vacay somewhere far away and Gramma gets to watch the furry kids! It's a huge treat for me to spend time with them.
