Something Fishy Is Going On!

Greetings to all, it's me, Maggie!  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Before I get started with today's post, please allow me to wish all of you a very happy Siber Monday from Cam, Zim and me.  Ours was very busy - lots of playing and walking and playing and chewing on everything I could find and playing and learning things from Cam and Zimmie and playing ... AND I got to have special playtime in the backyard!

As we started down the deck stairs, Mom told me something fishy!  She said we were going to play with a very special fish -- but I had left my Fishie in the house, so I was a bit befuddled.  Mom said this fish was different - and that his name is Squeaky Fish!  Oh, I just love squeaky toys, so I couldn't wait!

When we got out to the yard, I chewed on Squeaky Fish a bit - and oh, was Mom right! It's SUCH a fun toy and has the very loudest SQUEAK I've ever heard!

"SQUEAK!!!"

Mom went down to the next tier down and she could still hear my new friend squeaking!

"Maggie!  Come!"
"SQUEAK!!!"

Umm... would you believe I couldn't hear Mom calling me over the loud squeaks?

Anyway, Mom thought I might burn up more energy (whatever that means) if she threw Squeaky Fish and I chased after him and brought him back. It's a game called "Fetch".  I haven't heard of that, and don't recall seeing it as a recommended activity in the Siberian Husky rule book, but I thought I'd humor my mom a bit.  She gave Squeaky a little toss and I gleefully dove into the pool of leaves in the yard to get him!

"Whee!  Gotcha, Squeaky Fish!"

Mom thought that might mean I was ready for some long throws! We went down onto the middle tier of the yard and Mom gave SF a good toss. I flew after him!

Run, run, run!

Then I ran back up to the top tier!

"Here I come!"

Then I ran to Squeaky again, and ran back up to the top tier:

"Here I come again!"

I kept flying along the top tier -- can you see me zooming in this next shot?

Zoom, zoom, zoom!!!

I ran back to the middle tier (and remembered to pick up Squeaky Fish that time), then kept going!  Here I am, zooming on the top tier with Squeaky!

"Squeak!!!"

I had all kinds of fun running around the yard with Squeaky Fish!

Oh.  I might have forgotten about the "bring it back to Mom" part of the game.

"Zim, Cammie, and Sibes everywhere will be so proud of me!"

I had a lovely time playing with my very special new toy!  And as per playing "Fetch" the Siberian Husky way?  Nothing fishy about that at all!

Have a joyous Siber Monday, everyone!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  1. OH Maggie, I am so relieved to hear that you did NOT return the toy to your mom.

    One time tops. That's the rule. I'm sure Zim and Cam will let you know that as well in case you forget.

  2. That's how I play fetch too! I chase the ball, but then just run off and wait for dad to retrieve it.

  3. *whew* I think if you brought Mr. Squeaky back to your Mom, you'd have to turn in your Sibe card and petition to be a Lab or a Retriever or something. You had us worried until you made it clear that you DIDN'T bring it back! ;-)

  4. Well doggone it, Maggie. I was hoping you'd have picked up a bit of the adopted Dave trait to make us Labs a teensy bit proud. Maybe there's hope yet. I'll keep watching.......

  7. I think maybe we need a squeaky fish in our house! I was gonna say "A Sibe retrieving?" until your mom explained it.
