Today I saw a neighbor walking his dog after the snowstorm. The dog was wearing a coat and four separate booties. Another way Maud was ahead of her time: she dressed her beloved Great Dane, Dagda according to the weather. When Maud brought Dagda with her to Donegal she provided shoes from her cobbler so that the dog’s feet wouldn’t be torn up and worn down by rocky dirt country roads. In many ways, big and small, Maud was ahead of her time.
