Update on Maggie May:
Friday at 5:00 pm she was released from the crate.........she went wild (wrestling, running on the stairs, climbing furniture, etc) and was put in the bedroom about 15 minutes later. When her ears cock back and she gets that wild look in her eyes, there is not much time to react before she goes nuts. Jr and I flinched with practically every move she made, we did not want a repeat of the last month and a half, so we put her up. We let her back out for about 30 minutes before bed and she was much calmer. She seemed pretty sore and slept all night in the crate.
She spent most of Saturday in the bedroom while I was off on a much needed shopping trip. I opened the bedroom door for her to come out in the rest of the house, but she wanted to stay on the bed and rest. We believe her muscles were aching and sore from not being used much for the last 45 days. She slept in the crate all night.
