Who We Are

Saturday, November 16, 2013


Greetings to all!  It's me, Margaret Thatcher.  Both Cammie and I went to see our vets this week, and while at the Veterinary Health Center, Mom had us pose for pictures.  Are you surprised?  We weren't, either.

My trip was very interesting this time!  And the planning started the day before ...

Mom was talking about borrowing Dad's SUV, when to load  my carrier  10 Downing Street into it, and something about a long run for a short slide.  THEN there was some speculation about whether something would fit me!  The next thing I knew, I was wearing this:


Mom was "squee-ing" up a storm, going on about how grown up I look and how she couldn't believe it - and Daddy said she should take me for a test drive.  Yes, a drive ... without mobilizing 10 Downing!

Mom opened the door to the Celica and I hopped right in.  She buckled something called a "seat belt" through my new harness, and said we'd take a short drive!

"Ooooh!  Feel the breeze!"

Mom popped open the sunroof and we drove past a body of water with ducks and everything!

"Driver?!?  Was that what I think it was?!?"

Apparently, it was the infamous Kansas Ocean!  I thought at first it might be St. James's Park Lake, but I was mistaken.  Either way, it was very exciting and I just loved riding shotgun, as Zim calls it!

The very next day, I got to go in the car again - this time, to the vet's!

Me, outside the Vet Med Health Center

All I had to do was sit on the scale to get weighed, so they could give me the right amount of heart worm preventative.  I'm growing so fast, it's best to check!  Did you know I can do "sit" now?  And did you also know that at 15 weeks of age I weigh 22.9 pounds?  I'm going through something called a "growth spurt". Mom says I'm still her little girl, though, and seems to pick me up more than ever. Something about "not being able to do this much longer". Hmm.

Anyway, here's my impression of a Steiff stuffed toy:


Pretty good, don't you think?

As I said, my Aunt Cammie went to see her vet, too. I didn't go with her this time, but she did some posing by the Mosier Hall sign, too:

"I  Dr. B! And not just because she gave me treats!" 

She's smiling because she didn't have to have her ear flushed out this time and her ear infection is WAY better!

Wait a minute. "Treats"!?!?  I didn't get treats!!!  "Treats"!?!?  I need to ask Dr. A about this when I go in for more boosters next week!

Here's Cam by the "A Kind Touch" statue:


It's a lovely statue, even if I did buff at it once. Please follow the link provided to learn more about it.

That's about it.  It's a big step for me to be able to ride in the car now, instead of in the carrier inside the SUV!  Zimmie and Cammie said it means really cool adventures are right around the corner for me!  And we're sooooo happy Cam's ear is doing so well!

Have a lovely weekend!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
