- Lady Maya Ravenna Haley-Rezac
- Animal Assisted Therapy Canine
Maya is an American Chocolate Labrador Retriever born 11/25/2017 and named for Cost Maya, Mexico, we love the history of this hidden city just now being uncovered. Maya in Nepali means “love”, Persian “generous”, Vedic “power and wisdom”, Hinduism “goddess of wealth, prosperity and love”. The contextual meaning of Maya in Atharvaveda is “power of creation” which is held in may Greek Mythologies and that “wisdom and power enabling its possessor, or being able itself, to create, devise, contrive, effect, or do something”. 2018 is a year believed to be strong for creating positive change and energy which is why we felt this name fitting. Her middle name, Ravenna, is from a romantic city in Italy that is known for beauty with Byzantine mosaics and rich in history and also considered a form of Raven which is a powerful spiritual symbol where it’s appearance marks times to give serious consideration to the messages coming your way. Maya has lived up to her name in every sense, showing herself to be amazingly calm, loving and healing. She is incredibly smart and learns quickly.
