Mary was wild and crazy from the start. When she was merely seven weeks old, she ran away from Mum and siblings for a little exploration.
Mary: See you later!
Sofia: Calm down!
Mary: A car! A runner! A cat! A horse!
We had to sit down and hold her until she calmed down again. At the most, it took fifteen minutes.
Alexander: Mary! Come out!
Mary: Wohoo another puppy do you wanna pla...
She couldn't play with the mirror puppy, but Pietro wanted to play all the time. Sometimes we had to put an end to things so Mary got some sleep.
Pietro: Come on! Don't sleep! Play!
Mary: Uh what?
Sofia: But how? We've got a high fence?
This increases the risk for future spinal problems, but we didn't give it much thought.
She didn't become a tracking dog or search dog, just a hippie dog. But she was happy anyway.
Mary: It must work!
She also chewed up a metal fetching stick.
Man: Might it be in here, perhaps?
Mary became thrilled and tried to make him play with her. Great guard dog! She was also happy whenever the chimney sweeper, a washing machine installer and so on came to our house. New friends to play with!
Mary: Throw throw throw throw throw?
Sofia: Okay [after ten minutes nagging]
Mary: Hahaha you can't touch it!
The cats didn't agree.
Mary: Get out of here!
Dog: Okay sorry.
Mary: Look Mum! Another one!
Sofia: Stop! I have to disentangle you!
Sofia: Huff... puff... a little break perhaps?
Mary: Here you are! You get my best bone!
She became really happy when she got a little "cousin" to cuddle with.
Mary: Don't touch my car!
But it was because she didn't want people to fire towars the Ford!
Mary: I'm sceptical.
Girl: My little brother is afraid of dogs, so we figured we should go here and practice.
(Note: Completely unfamiliar children.)
Boy: She seems pretty kind. She only wants to play...
Then the children went home. I don't know what came out of this amateur CBT.
The very second the final music began to play she exploded.
When I woke up, she lay like this. After this event, she was nicknamed "Hat".
Mary: Yeeeah! Archipelago here we come!
Mary: What's this?
Mary: Can I swim?
Mary: Come on!
Surgery was scheduled. We did hard-surface tracking in the mean time, since she wasn't allowed to run or walk far.
Mary (roughly): Full speed until you pass out!
