Works Like A Charm

Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar.  So there we were, out on our walk this morning, when I thought Mags and I could use a little snack.  I turned around, put my paws up on my mom like I like to do and ...

"Hi, Mom.  How about a cookie?  Uh ... I mean 'hug'?"
"Oh, Ragnar!!!   ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤"

Works. Like. A charm.   Every single time.  I always get one for my sister, too, so don't worry about Mags!

Photo Finish Friday - What a View!

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. We had a GREAT walk at The Top Of The World this morning! When we got over to the cliff/overlook area, we just had to stop and take it all in!
"Wow!  Check it out, Mags!"
"What a view!"

"I think I can see Oklahoma!  ... or at least our house."
"Are you getting this, Mom?"
"Got it, Mags!  

It was so clear - Ragnar may have been right about Oklahoma!  

We hope you're all enjoying wonderful days, too!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

You Know It's Going To Be A Great Walk ...

Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar.  You know it's going to be a great walk when you get to the end of the paved part of the trail and ...
"Ragnar!  Out in the field!  Can you see them?!?  COWS!"
"YES!  And I smell them, too!!!"

I mean -- COWS! And there were horses closer to the trail!  Then we ran into a Siberian friend and these two really nice Australian Shepherds we hadn't seen since last year. What a great walk!

Greeting to all! It's me, Mags! Did you know I have DSP? Dad Sensory Perception? It's true. Ragnar is getting it, too. It's like yesterday ...

We were out on the porch helping Mom figure out if she needs a bow for the porch tree (she did) when she said ...
"OK!  That's great - let's go inside!"
"Wait!  Raggi!  Are you picking up what I'm picking up?"
"Not yet, Mags ..."

I let Mom lead us as far as the driveway, then I plopped my floofy jodhpurs down and refused to move.  Ragnar laid down.

"Oh!  Oh, Mags!  I'm getting the signal!"
"Can we go in the ..."

Please note the grey HR-V coming down the street in this next shot:

"Here he comes!!!"
"How did you guys ..."

DSP.  It never fails me.

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Guess What Day It Is?!?

Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar!  I've got some great shots to share with you - Mom snapped these on our walk this morning!

Here we are in front of the beautiful sunrise:
"Umm ... Ragnar?!?  Mags?!?  Helloooooo!?!?"

And here we are posing at the top of Grand Mère Trail:
"Ragnar?  Mags?!?  Oh, c'mon, you two!  I have cookies!!!  Wait ... what day is this?!?"

Ha!  "What day is this?"!!?!!  That's right, everybody ...
"Happy Siber Monday!!!"
"Don't look too much in her direction, Raggi!"

Have a most joyous Siber Monday, everybody!  Have fun embracing your inner Siberian!!!

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags! I've been busy this morning helping my mom deck the halls for Christmas. 

"What now, Mom?"
"Would you please sit on the stack-o-beds by the snowman thingie I just hung up?"

No sweat.  I'm a Working Breed.  I was born for this kind of thing.

Oh. Ragnar? Yeah.  No worries.  He's helping, too, trust me. 

"How's this?"
"Perfect, Mags!  Uh ... wait ... what the ..."
"Hi!  What are you guys doing?!?  How about some Snooter Jousting, Mags?!?"

And just like that Mom said we should go play!  Best.  Kid.  Brother.  EVER!!!!

Talk about helping!  He helped me a TON!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
