Unless You're The Lead Dog ...

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  Mom likes to take pictures of Maggie and me out on our daily walks.  The only problem from her perspective is ... her perspective!  You know the old saying, "Unless you're the lead dog, the scenery never changes." Whatever. It's not like the scenery around us doesn't change, but apparently a couple weeks ago Mom wanted photos of us on a walk from in front of us.  

It was weird - she kept trying to run ahead of us, but I kept pace with her.  I like to walk either beside her of out in front.  I didn't like this popping out ahead thing!  Eventually, I stopped to sniff something and she made her move:

Me and Mags.  From the front.

It seemed to make her happy.  I was unimpressed.

Does your mom do weird stuff like that?

Making Plans

Hello, everyone! It's me, Cammie. Maggie and I are here firming up our plans for the week ...

"... and then we could do neck grabbies---"
"Shh!  Mom's right there!"

...which would be a lot easier to do if Mom wasn't listening in!

Serene Sunday

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags.  The other day was so serene!  It started out like normal -- breakfast, walkies, Crazed River Otter Games, and then ... I got a bath!  A shower, actually.  And.  I.  Liked it.

I know. Strange.  It felt really good, though.  Serene, even!

It was warm out, so after my shower, Mom and I went out on the deck to do the drying off part.

Here I am, all wet:

Me, looking quite wet and non-fluffy

I look grumpy there, but I wasn't really. The sun was in my eyes!

Mom used the ol' Master Blaster on me for probably 87 hours.

Can you tell how thick and lush my coat is?

Fortunately, she let me take a couple breaks!  I was super good - Mom said throughout the shower and blow-dry I was almost Cammie-esque!  That's quite the compliment; Cam is so super-good about stuff like this!

Anyway, eventually, I was all fluffed up and dry!

Me, fluffiness restored!

I'm just now starting to blow my Winter coat out, so the real fun hasn't started yet.  When I get to full coat-blowing stage, I'll get Mom to shoot video while she uses the Master Blaster on me!  I'm going to cause quite the fur-nado!  

Do you feel all serene now?  I do.  I'm not sure why.  But I do.

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Ho Hum

Greetings to all.  It's me, Maggie.  Cam and I had a lovely breakfast, went on a nice walk, and had a great round of Crazed River Otter games this morning.  Now we're just kind of ...

"Ho ... hum."

Yeah.  Not much going on.

Are you all doing anything exciting today?

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  Mom asked Maggie and me to do some stair landing posing the other day.  Being the ever-helpful Siberians that we are, we were happy to oblige ...

"How's this, Mom?"
"Yeah.  How's this?  No messing around or anything!"

... because, let's face it, there were treats involved.

"You DO have treats, don't you?!?"
"Yeah, Mom!  Don't you?!?"

Don't worry. She did!  Whew.

I Think It's Working

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie.  The other morning, Maggie and I took Mom and Dad on a walk and we did this:


When we got home, we did this:


And eventually ...

"Cam, I can barely keep ... my ... eyezzzz..."
"I love it when a plan comes together!"

That's right.  All part of my plan!
