Outside Fun Time!

Greetings to all, it's me, Maggie!  We all got to have some fun out back the other day, so I thought I'd share a few photos with you!  Would you like to join us?

Here's what I like to do! Before I get started playing, I like to do that "up and down the stairs" thing I told you about the other day a few times.


Go all the way up to the top, then race back down! Four is my minimum. I really enjoy it!

After that, I do some exploring:


There's a puppy over there who barks at us sometimes. That's also where Zim's friend, Fluffy Black Cat, lives. (I met FBC yesterday, by the way. Mom said I did really well with her; I got within 5 feet, then after a bit, she left to go do kitty cat things.)

After that, I like to do yard zoomies:


Mom likes to bring a toy out for me. I like to chase after the toy, then run off with it!


It's very fun! Mom thinks it would be even more fun if I'd bring it back, but I'm just not into that!

Winding down after some major toy zoomies

After Zim and Cammie got to do something fun, we all hit the deck together. Here's Cammie on Guard Duty, checking out the western front:

"Schnauzer!  The Schnauzer's out!"

Zim loves to do Guard Duty out there, too:

"Got him in my sights, Cam!  Good work!"

Me? I'd rather play!  Here I am playing Hide and Seek with Cammie:

"Here I am, Auntie CamCam!"
"Oh, Maggie!  I never would have found you under there!"

Is it my imagination, or did I fit under that chair a lot better a couple months ago?

I thought Zimmie should take a break from Guard Duty and come play with us, so I went down and got him:

"Hey, everybody.  What's shakin'?"
"Come play with us, Zimmie!"
"I got him, Aunt Cammie!"

It's always more fun with all of us!  How about a group howl?

"Ha roooo!"
"Ha rowwwwww!"
"Ha wrooooooohhh!!!"

What fun!  Thank you for joining us for some outside fun time!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. Margaret T., I (Ernie) am not into that bringing it Back thingy... If they WANTED it... why would they throw it away? RIGHT??? Why give them a Second Chance to Throw it Away and run the risk of it being LOST or somethingy like that. Just sayin.

    Love your UP and DOWN Warm up time before playing. That gets the mussles all awake and READY fur PLAY.

  2. What a fun day with mom. You must feel special being out there like a big girl. Nice view you guys have there

  3. OMD just loving the group howl. Just brill and we are howling back at ya.
    Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. Maggie, you tired us out! You are busy when you're outside!

  5. wow - we got tired just watching you run around like that. :) but you gotta get that puppy energy out somehow!!

  6. I don't bring my toys back either, Maggie. It's much more fun to make mum or dad go get them.

  7. Hi Maggie, I hope your sunny weather continues so you can have lots of fun playtime outside. Hunter is finally able to go outside whenever he wants because most of the snow has melted. Have a great afternoon.
    Wags, Noreen & Hunter

  8. You all sure look like you're having some fun! That is a lot of steps, but beautiful views.

  9. hee hee! that group howl needs a sound bite :) Thanks for taking us out to play with you, Maggie! it's always fun for us since we don't normally get to go out ;-/ hmmm...what's with your shrinking deck furniture though?

    Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie
