Drying Off

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie!  As you may have noticed yesterday, I was mighty wet after our pool party and my shower.  You may be wondering ... did Mom just towel me off?  ... did she let me go inside all wet?  ... did Maggie and I run around and play Crazed River Otter Games until I was dry???  The answer to all of the above is "no".  Back in April of this year, Mom and Dad sprung for the Air Force Master Blaster 8-Horse Power Dryer!

Both Maggie and I were introduced to high-powered dryers when we were tiny puppies back at our breeder's -- so we really don't mind!  And when I was active as a show dog, I certainly was fluffed and dried quite a bit!  Now ... I find it very relaxing, actually.  Take a look:

It's like a sweet, tropical breeze!

Do your bipeds use a high-powered dryer on you? How do you like it?

Stay fluffy, my friends!

Cammie!

End Of The Season

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie. Yesterday, Cam and I had what might end up being the last pool party of the 2016 season.  Sad as it is, it means SNOW is right around the corner, so that's GREAT!!  Well, OK, maybe not snow, but we're heading into cooler weather. Anyway, we played Crazed River Otter Games (CROG), had a pool party, and Cam even took an outdoor shower!  I thought I'd show you some of the highlights today.

Here we are during a round of CROG:

"Say hi, Cam!"
"Hi, everybody!"

We were playing the Queen of the Landing version.

"I'm the Queen of the Landing!"
"No, I am!"

IMG_5207CamMagsDeckPlay
"Gotcha!"
"Mrrrfff!"

That round went to Cam, I must admit.  We moved on to the pool party.  I helped Mom fill it up.

"How's this, Mags?"
"Just about there, Mom!"

I'm pretty sure she wouldn't know how to do it without my supervision.

When we got it all set, I called Cam over.

"That's good, Mom.  Hey, Cam!  Are you coming?!?!"

She said to get started without her.  Here's a little video:

True to her word, Cam eventually came down and joined me.  She ended up getting so wet that Mom grabbed our shampoo, wet her down all the way, then soaped her up!  After a nice rinse, she jumped back into the pool!

"Don't get suds in the pool!"
"I'm all rinsed, Mags!"

We played more CROG to get dried off, then raced up the deck stairs.

"I win!"
"What's this?  A bug?  Oh, wait.  Did you already get it?"

Anyway, we had great fun! I wish all of you could have joined us. And who knows. With Kansas' weather as it is, we may well have more pool parties this season!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Indoor Playtime

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  The other day, Cam and I were super bored after our walk, playtime on the deck, and a round of Crazed River Otter Games (CROG), so Mom said we could spend some time playing with our "supervised only" toys!  Ya and hoo!

Cam grabbed her pumpkin, and I went for Sneaky Snake.

After a bit, Cam moved over to the bed by the fireplace. I was starting to lose interest in just  laying around trying to rip Sneaky Snake to pieces  playing ever-so-carefully with my toy, and decided to see if Cam wanted to switch.  ... but then Sneaky is so fun to play with ... I just couldn't decide!  Here's a short video of how I handled the situation:

So, yeah. I went back to playing with Sneaky Snake.

I seem to remember Sneaky having a much, much longer tail ....

At least I remembered to spit all the snake guts out -- right?!?

Meeting Interuptus

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  I'm just here with Maggie, discussing our ...

IMG_4045CamAndMags
"What?  Who, us?  No ... we aren't doing anything, Mom."
"Ha roo roo roo ..."

Well. We had been laying out our plans for the rest of the week, but we were interrupted!

Why does Mom always think we're up to something?!?

Cammie!

TV Show Review

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  I haven't talked TV shows or movies with you in quite a while, so I thought I'd let you know about my latest viewing.  We've been watching Poldark -- no, not the new one, the 1970s version.

IMG_2243MagsTV
"Aw, the little biped's crying!"

They have some pretty good horse chase scenes, a fight scene here and there, but other than that, it's sort of soap opera-esque.

IMG_2240CamMagsPlay
"Cam, aren't you going to watch Poldark?"
"No.  I don't like Poldark!"

Oh.  Well, in that case ...

IMG_4947MagsCamPlay
"Let's PLAY!"
"Now you're talking!"

So while it's not that hot of a show, I do like it -- because rather than settling in to watch it, Cammie wants to PLAY when it comes on! For that reason alone, I give it a paws up!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  Today, for Serene Sunday, I thought I'd show you my soft, sweet, snuggly side.
