Sunday Shocker

Greetings to all; it's me, Maggie.  I'm here with Cam today to tell you something rather shocking. Mom and Beth went out exploring together again yesterday. No... they didn't get lost, dehydrated, or heat exhaustion or anything this time ! I know! But that's not the shocking part. It's WHY none of that happened that's the shocker. Are you ready? This should explain everything:

Moss:  "OK, you two!  Mount up!  Let's go!"

That's right!  Apparently Moss got to drive!

Moss:  "Do I need to herd you - or are you coming?"
Beth:  "Egrets!  I see dozens of Great Egrets!"

Mom moved in closer, which made Moss happy.  Those Border Collies have special powers like that.  Seamus and Beth were already in the backseat while Mom was shilly-shallying.

Moss:  "Good human.  Now go around and jump in the passenger's seat."
Beth:  "I see birds!  And wildflowers!  And wide-open vistas!  And ..."

Moss:  "Hey!  Arms inside the Jeep!  Don't make me come back there!"
Beth:  "But ... but ... ooooh!  A Scarlet Tanager!"


"That really WAS shocking."
"Forget about riding shotgun next time we go somewhere together.  I want to drive!!!"

I mean ... if Moss can drive, why can't I?

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. Got to drive? And tell the humans to keep their elbows inside the car? No way!!!

  2. I think your driving sounds wonderful, but you might have to tolerate a front seat driver. You know how us moms can be.
    Have a cool Sunday.

  3. Ah, now we know why the cavalry didn't have to be called in this time! Good job Moss!

  4. OMD.... Moss got to DRIVE an Boss the PEEPS around and stuffs??? He must have one of those Special Licenses...
    CDL Cute DRIVER License.

  10. Yes, those border collies are smart, but they like to go in circles! A husky likes to go straight ahead, seems better for driving. Just sayin'.
