A little info about Saba.
Saba is a rescue dog, we're not sure exactly what her heritage is, but she looks kind of like a tall Corgy. She is named after the Dutch Caribbean Island and is a allergic to most dairy and meats, so she eats vegetarian dog food. She is a really smart dog who used to take care of a cockatiel (that's a bird, not a bluish green cocker spaniel), until she passed away -- her duties included waking the bird, Dulce, up in the morning by removing the blanket on the cage and watching her intently when she was out of the cage.
Maeby also has a feline cousin who lives with Saba, Chico, but he stayed away from Maeby, they met once, but only long enough to sniff each other, then Chico took off into the garage.
Some Pictures of Maeby and Saba being cordial with one another:
Maeby decided to give Saba's vegetarian lifestyle a try and had her first taste of corn on the cob.
Maeby taunted Saba for a little while by running circles around her. Saba just growled and tried to snap at her, but was always a bit too slow.
Maeby also got to go down to the lake for some kayaking and swimming
Here she is checking out the water
Most of the time she just seemed a bit wary of our kayaking skills. She always thought the other kayak would be safer.
Then on another day we took a hike up a nearby gorge. It was a beautiful hike and the slate stream bed was amazing. Then we walked back along fields of corn, alfalfa and soy.
Maeby trying to get dry - it was a losing battle
Maeby looking out contemplatively (is that word) over the fields of green
In this one I think Maeby looks like a frog. Her legs are too short to be able to run through the alfalfa, so she had to take a series of leaps to get through the field. In real life she looked more like a bounding deer, but this one is all frog - or maybe toad.
