Brrrr! It is extremely, dangerously cold. Hypothermia in a matter of minutes.
Jamie put my coat on me but I didn’t wear it long.
Potty is not my friend these days. I went out to pee, and my hind legs got so cold, I was dragging myself back into the house with only my front legs working. Mom ran out and got me. She screamed for Jamie and they covered me up with blankets and got me warm and happy again. Then, Jamie braved the cold to shovel me out a designated “potty area” so I don’t have to put my feet in the snow. That made things easier.
However, I’m just going to stay in with a good book and hold it!
Woof! Love, Maggie
Erik came over and the humans put up a volleyball/badminton net. I had no idea how fun badminton was until I chased that birdie all over the yard!
Dad made a delicious cookout and Mom gave me some scraps. The day was perfect and I spent the whole day chasing sticks, balls, and the birdie. Until I found something more fun to play with.
Mom wandered over to the badminton net to check things out and noticed I wasn’t there. She scanned the yard and did not see me. She eventually found me in the shade by the pool with my new chew toy that I was destroying.
Except…it wasn’t a chew toy. It was Erik’s glasses. They fell off his shirt and into the grass, where I saw them winking in the sun and decided I just had to have them.
I have never seen Mom go nuclear before. But I did today.
Dad managed to get one of the lenses put back into the frame. The lens was damaged but Erik was able to at least drive home. Mom and Dad are buying him a new set of glasses Tuesday.
I ended up on the tether after that one.
No more catching birdies for me. The end of a perfect day, that ended in disaster!
(droops tail) Love, Maggie
