Better Than A Drive-By!

Greetings to all, it's me, Maggie!  I had the most exciting morning!  It started out like always - breakfast, a short walk, playing... you know - the basics.  But then Mom let Cammie and me play on the deck a little bit.  Here we are, taking a break:

"I think the German Shepherd from next door is outside!"
"Let me see, Cam!"

We had a nice play session, THEN Mom said, "Come on, girls!" and we headed off on another walk! Now that my two weeks of recovery after my spay is over, I couldn't wait to see where we'd go! Check this out!!!

"Look up and to our left, Maggie!"
"GASP!  Aunt Cammie!  It's ... it's ..."

You all know what it was!  The Kansas Ocean!!!  I've driven past it, but I've never gotten to walk all the way there!!!

We strolled along the boardwalk ...

"This is so exciting, Cammie!"
"Isn't it lovely here, Mags?"

... stopped to take in the scenery ...

"I'll have to let Zimmie know it's still frozen.  I don't see any of his birdie friends!"

... and even crossed the transoceanic bridge!

"That was so fun!  Let's cross back over!"

Walking to the ocean was everything I imagined it would be!  I made the most of it by zig-zagging as much as possible and checking everything out, and wow, did I use up a lot of energy!  Then Aunt Cammie reminded me of something:

"You know we have to walk all the way home now, too ... right?"

I forgot.  That's OK - I'm a puppy; I have plenty of reserve power!

"C'mon, Auntie Cam!  I'm not tired yet!"
"Atta girl, Maggie!"

We went up this big, hilly road to get back home:

"You know why there's sand all over this road, don't you, Maggie?"
"Yes!  Because we're by the ocean!"

I've been hanging out with Zim a lot.  That's how I knew that.  Zim is so smart!

Anyway, thanks for letting me tell you all about my exciting walk to the KSO and back!  Mom said I'm going to get to go on a big walk every day now, in addition to my shorter ones!!!  I'll be sure to have her take lots of photos along the way!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
