3/18/14 Busy, busy

I’ve been very busy lately!  Let me be the first to say, I know nothing – nothing at all – about the 50 pounds (and then some!) of dog poop that the melting snow uncovered in the backyard.  (Gives most innocent look)

Mom and Jamie went out back to take advantage of the nice weather – umm, clean up the landfill of poop – while I sniffed at the remaining ice-packed snow and kept a lookout for That Rabbit.  After the massive cleanup, showers were had by all.  The stinky humans needed it. 

This weekend, Mom, Dad, and Jamie headed out for some real rest and relaxation at The Herrington Inn, Geneva, IL (check out the place at: http://www.herringtoninn.com).  That means I headed out to Canine Obedience College in Alsip (to be fair, http://www.canineobediencecollege.com) for a rousing weekend with The Alpha Male.  It was a play-hard weekend for me, and I came home with my tail wagging and happy to see my chair.  Nothing like the “take me a week to recover from one night” at PetSmart.

While Mom was out, Laurel swung by and caught me napping in the crate.  She took me out for a long walk to the stables and gave me a relaxing massage afterwards.  Please don’t tell me I’m spoiled.  I know that I am!  We went out back and I saw the rabbit.  I laid my ears back and went to give chase when – yank! – I realized I was still on a lead and attached to Laurel.  Foiled again!

Mom and Jamie are putting me out on the tether now.  I guess I’ll have to get used to it.  Mom says there’s no keeping me in the yard when that rabbit is around!

Spring is coming…I can feel it!  And I can see its bunny ears!

Woof!  Love, Maggie
