Here is Maya, aged 4 days old.
She looks so tiny and helpless, it's hard to believe that one day she will have a huge responsibility, in watching over my son. Border Collies have been selectively bred to become working dogs and instinctively want to please their owner, so I already know she will be a wonderful diabetic alert dog.
I can't help it, but I am going to be one of those bloggers who obsesses about their puppy, and thinks their dog is the cutest and the smartest in the world. I'm really looking forward to having a little baby in the house again.
