Indi's sister Maile lives in Hawaii

Indi's sister Maile in Kona.

This is my mom’s dog, Maile. She lives in Kona on the big island of Hawaii. Maile and Indi have never met because it is not easy to get a dog to or from Hawaii. I’ve never met Maile, myself, but I know she is super sweet and just a little bit spoiled.

My mom Dana taught me how to love dogs, and I taught her how to let dogs back into your life when I begged her to let me bring Bear home (my first dog– there is a picture of her in the photo gallery). I believe my exact words were, “Please? Just for one night.”

Maile goes on walks every morning around the golf course with mom and her other dog friends. She loves to lounge on the lanai overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and she even gets to sleep on the bed! This is a huge deal in my family. While dogs were spoiled with plenty of walks and treats they were not allowed on furniture. I don’t know how Maile wiggled her way onto the bed, but she has. Permanently.

Indi has started sleeping on the bed, too. And she never used to do that. She didn’t want to, apart from not being allowed. But I have come home a few times now to find her wagging her tail at me from the comfort of my bed. She even hopped up one night between Brad and I. And in case you forgot, Indi weighs 90 pounds, I’m 5’10” and Brad is 6’3″. Oh, the things we do for love.

    Maile sure is a cutie. Sounds like she lives a charmed life in Hawaii. It sounds like Indi is doing good. Jumping up on the bed with three legs is a great thing. I say let her get up there as long as she wants.
