My Favorite Toy

Greetings to all - it's me, Maggie!  The other morning after our walk, us girls went out on the deck with Mom, then eventually Mom took me into the backyard to play.  That sounded great, only ...

"I'd rather play with my favorite toy, Mom."

I mean - we all have our favorites, right? Mom said it was OK, so ...

"Yea!!!  CAMMIE!!!"

Cammie is way more fun to play with than any toy!

"Thanks for playing with me, Cam!"

Then I bet Cam that she couldn't grab me - 'cause I'm so fast and all!  But ... umm ...

"Gotcha, Peeps!"
"Hey!  Wait a minute!"

Wow, does Cammie have some moves!!!  And she's super-fast when she wants to be!!!

"Oh, don't worry, readers.  I'm not hurting her.  She's my little puppy and I know how to play nice."

I got out of Cam's grip and challenged her to a footrace! I mean - sure, she pinned me, but I can out-sprint her, right?

"Ha roooo!  Try to catch me, Mags!"
"Hey!  Wait a minute!!!"

She is F-A-S-T!!!

I think we are both airborne here!

And then ...

"Hey ... where did she go?!?"

Cammie ran so fast, I couldn't tell where she had gone!  I ran back the way we came - and then I saw her!

"WOW!  How did you DO that?!?!"

That's right - that's Cammie leaping up and over the retaining wall.  She had run clear around to the second tier down, then raced over and jumped UP to the first tier!!!  WOWZERS!

Mom made some note about amending the rule about not jumping off the retaining walls to not jumping UP them, either, but puh-lease.  Cammie looked AWESOME doing that - and I can't wait to try it out!

Anyway, what great fun!  We played a while more, then Mom said it was time to get busy in the garden.  Here's one last action shot of us, helping Mom while she tended the tomatoes:

"You're doing a fine job, Mom!"
"Yep.  Great job."

We were a tiny bit tired or else we would have been more hands-on.

I'm sure glad Mom let me play with my favorite "toy"!  

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
