A Jolly Good Time

Greetings to all, it's me, Maggie.  I don't think I've told you about some of my new toys yet!  They're all made by the Jolly Pets people.  I have a huge yellow Jolly Egg, a big, hard purple Push-n-Play Ball, and a gigantic Tug-n-Toss Ball!  That one is an "outside only, Maggie" toy for some reason.  Want to see it?

"Here it is!"

Doesn't it look fun? Sometimes we play Fetch with it on the deck or sometimes we play with it in the yard, which is even more fun! Let's go play!

"Got it!  Got it!  Got it!"

I can run, run, run, then bring it back!  It has this handle on it, so even though it's gigantic, it's easy to carry!

"See?  Here's the handle right here!"

Sometimes we play on the upper tier and sometimes we play on the middle tier.  Here's a shot of me down there, running!

Cool action shot!

You might be able to tell by the flowering tree behind me up there (the Yorktown Snow Flower tree) that the photo is from a week or two ago.  We've been playing out there more recently, but I have no photos.  Mom said something about her needing to focus more on training me about certain things while we play right now and less on taking pictures.  I have no idea what she's talking about.

In unrelated news, here's a picture of my training lead going over one of the retaining walls.


I have no comment on what may or may not have happened there.  I'm pretty sure that's what my mentors have taught me to say.  That ... and to strike a cute pose as soon as possible.

"Wowzers, that was fun!"

Seriously, who could accuse me of anything?!?

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  6. Jolly Balls are an all time favorite toy here.

    I cannot explain how your training lead went over the wall, either...

  7. that is one big ball - thank dogness you are strong girl!

  8. We bet the real reason is that your mom is the one who needs training so she can't handle being trained plus taking pictures, right Mags? Clearly you're trained perfectly already!

  9. Maggie, you are the picture of innocence!


  10. Obviously an evil squirrel grabbed the other end of your lead and jumped up there.

  11. Woo-hoo, Mags! that ball looks like a blast! Woo have the bestest toys! As for the training leash, well.... we'll just pretend it doesn't exist.
