So Fun!

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. Have I mentioned how fun it is to have a little brother lately?!? Take the other day, for instance ...

There we were, having a very important meeting, when Mom came up on us ...

"And so then ... oh ... oh ..."
"... yeah.  Ixnay on the ansplay ..."
"Hi, puppies!  Look at how cute you are!"

Well ... shucks.  Sweet.  But then she insisted on taking pix!

"Just ONE, then it's Raggi's turn!"
"But you look so adorable!  And regal!!"

Hard to argue with that, but I called Ragnar over to bail me out; I'd had enough of the paparazzi!

"Hi Mom!  What are you & Mags doing?!?  Can I play, too?!?  How about a close up?!?"

Having a kid brother is SO FUN!!!!!

Yours sincerely,

Sunrise!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags.  This morning we saw a glorious sunrise on our walk!  Ragnar and I had to stop to take it all in:

"Check out those rays, Ragnar!"
"WOW!"

We stood there for just a minute or two and watched our world brighten as the sky changed.

"God is an amazing artist, isn't He?"
"I'll say!!!"
"❤❤❤"

Are you enjoying awesome Autumn skies where you are, too?

Road Trip!

Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar!  Yesterday morning after our walk, we set out on an adventure!  We went to Quivira National Wildlife Refuge to see birdies.  Now, there are tons of birdies around our house, but not the kind that are at Quivira, apparently.  Anyway, we might post some of Mom's birdie pix eventually, but in the meantime, here are the highlights as far as Mags and I are concerned!

Here's what we did on the way down:

"Hey, Mags!  Let's see how many different
license plates we can see!  I see lots of Colorados!"
IMG_2781MagsHRV
"OK!  I've got Iowa ... Nebraska ... does Kansas count?"

That was a good question.  Do you count the state you're in?  We decided we would!

We took a break about halfway there. We got to walk around for a bit, and that was nice. Mom didn't take pix.

Then we got to the Kansas Wetlands Education Center:

"Have I told you there are Prairie Dogs in there, Ragnar?"
"Wait.  They're allowed in, but we aren't?!?"

That just seems wrong.  Anyway, we had a nice walk there, plus got water and a snack. The snack part was REALLY great!  I'll bet the Prairie Dogs don't get snacks!!!

After that, there were a whole lot of birdies and lots of stopping and Mom getting out to photograph them. We might have been snoozing ... I'm not sure. Anyway, after that, we drove to the little town of Ellinwood!

"Ha roo, people of Ellinwood!!!"
"Sköl!"

We had another water & snack break there, and took a short stroll:

After that, we piled back into the vehicle and headed home.

"Thanks for bringing snacks, Mom!"
"❤❤❤"

Everybody had a great time!  Mom and Dad were really happy with all the birdies they saw (plus coyotes, armadillos, and deer!) and Mags and I loved all the new sights and smells.  And snacks.

Sköl!
Ragnar

How About A Hug?

Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar.  If you're out on a walk with ... oh, I don't know, let's say with my mom ... and you want a hug, all you have to do is ...

IMG_2722RagnarMags
"Hi, Mom!  How about a hug?!?"
"   Oh, Ragnar!  "
"Get a cookie for me, too, Ragnar!"

There's a real good chance you'll get a tiny treat, too. Just in case you were wondering.  (And don't forget to ask for one for your sister, too!)

Sköl!
Ragnar
