Maya came from a local source – we were ready for another Shi Tzu after loosing our long time companion Sammy (a 15 year old Shi Tzu). Maya picked us – She is very well loved and loving. As we are getting to know each other, we spend alot of time together. I noticed that as I observe her the stories that come have a teaching to them. It occurred to me that perhaps this could help others like children. I have been inspired as I watch her to write poems about her activities, that have a moral component to it, and I have begun sketching Maya to perhaps move in a different career direction with Maya’s help and inspirations. We are starting to compile a package to see if there is interest in this idea of using Maya and her adventures as a children’s book or some other medium to allow children to learn from her as well as feel good about themselves.
Maya is so special that I believe she can help many people and I want to help her in this effort.
