Maverick was a true sheperd dog. He hiked and visited most of the
eastern states and swam on beaches all up and down the coast. He even
hiked the Rockies, guiding and watching us the whole way. After a
divorce, Maverick and I moved to NYC so I could go back to school.
Times weren't as easy as before, but we stuck together in our tiny
apartment and shared our hot dogs in the park.
Most of all Maverick was a people dog. He knew his best friends by
name, would stop and wait for someone to come out a car that looked
like theirs, memorized the routes to their homes and would welcome
them ecstatically after years of absence. He wanted nothing more than
to love and protect all of his people.
