3/25/14 Nice While It Lasted

Well, the squirrely-squirrel is no more.  It was nice while it lasted:

All That Remains!  Jamie saved the squeaky part.

I had a lot of fun today with my new toys, despite the destruction of the squirrel.  Dad played “chase” with me, and I ended up in a tug-o-war with him over my new bone that left him sprawled face down on the stairs.  Muahahaha!  I win!  Score one for Magzilla, the Hairy Bullet!

Mom and I played “hide and seek” (I love that game!)  Mom hides, I go find her, then she tries to snatch my toy, and I scramble all over trying to evade her.  Then she hides again, and repeat.  I can play that all day! 

Mom and I went to pick Jamie up at school.  Had a quick brisk walk (only 26 degrees out) then back in Zeus to wait for Jamie.  I was so happy to see him!  And I was proud of myself that I didn’t barf in the car.  Mom had put towels down just in case.  Zeus is little and bumpy!

Ah…all in a day’s work!  Today my humans wore me out!

Have a good night, everyone!  Woof!  Love, Maggie

5/31/13 Race Track

If you can believe it, it’s STILL RAINING, and we can’t play outside!  Jamie is pulling out all kinds of toys to amaze and confuse me today.  First, he brought out a little whizzing mechanical bird called a “helly-copter” and landed it on my crate!  I tried to snap it up, but I couldn’t catch it.

Later, he brought out two of the tiniest cars I had ever seen before.  I have never been one to chase cars until today.  He put the cars on the little table in the living room on a black curvy track and they started chasing each other around.  This got me VERY excited, so I jumped up, putting my front paws and legs on the table, barking and trying to snatch the cars off with my teeth.  But they were going too fast!  I was only able to get in a couple of sniffs, and they smelled dusty.  After a few good sneezes to clear my nose, Mom finally stopped laughing long enough to say, “She’s scratching up my coffee table – put that racetrack in the kitchen!”  So Jamie moved all his toys to the other room.

I’ll be very glad when it dries up enough to play catch again, without getting soaked!
