It's Adopt-a-Maggie Day!!!!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Today is the very first anniversary of my homecoming!  My Gotcha Day!  Adopt-a-Prime-Minister Day!  Peep-a-versary!!!  Can you believe I've been here a year already?!!?

Cammie posted a lot of pictures a year ago when I first got to Ao4 Headquarters - you can see them at this link, if you'd like.  Today, I thought I'd share some you haven't seen before!  Are you ready!?!

Here I am, somewhere in Lawrence, Kansas, on my way home:

"Home, please, driver!"

This was taken immediately upon my arrival at Ao4 Headquarters:

"I thought it was supposed to be a yellow brick road!"

After meeting Cammie and Zim, I explored the lower deck:


I will admit, I loved Cam from the start ... and just adored Zimmie!

"Love you, kid!"

We all miss him very, very much.

Mom and Dad set up a nice den for me in the kitchen. We refer to it as 10 Downing Street.

"Greetings from 10 Downing Street!"

It's a nice little get-away.

Cam, Zim, and I did a lot of playing starting that very first day:

"Show me that Crazed River Otter game again!"
"Shall we, Zim?"
"Oh, yeah, Cam.  Let's go for it!!  Are you ready, Mag-a-roo?"

I showed them I was really good at play bowing already:

"Ha yip yip rooooo!"

I wanted to play all day! Here I am again with Cam:

"Let's play some more, Auntie CamCam!!!"
"Aren't you tired yet, little one?"

Cam said I was very, very active as a puppy - and that some things haven't changed.  I wonder what she meant by that?

Here are two last pictures, showing you at least one change.  Cam and me "then":

And here we are "now":

I think I've changed a little bit ... haven't I?

I hope you'll celebrate with me!  We'll be going on extra walkies, having some fruit, and enjoying special playtime with our toys!!!  Happy homecoming!!!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
