1/24/15 Big Toy

Mom and Jamie went out and bought me a Big Toy. It’s a very large tennis ball on a tough, knotted rope. I am loving it and having a fun time!

We got up to the 40’s the last couple of days, and most of the snow melted. Then it froze, so now the backyard has a thick coating of ice in spots.

I could hear a cat in the woods meowing her head off. I’ve seen her around lately. She’s a feral cat, and we think she is in heat. Mom throws chicken scraps out for the cats. I get jealous of that.

Anyway, I could hear her before the humans heard her, so I pretended like I had to use the bathroom. Once they opened the back door, I ran out through the sweet spot in the fence and into the woods to give chase to the cat.

Jamie jammed his shoes on his feet and tried to catch me, but the ice in the yard confounded him. He was persistent though, and found me on the other side of the swamp. Foiled again!

Mom was angry, and told me to lie down. She says that in the spring, they are going to reinforce the fence.

I am going to lie down for a while and then try to coax Mom with the Big Toy and a friendly game of tug-o-war.

Woof! Love, Maggie

PS – I think I frightened off the cat.

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
