Something's Fishy!

Greetings to all! It's me - Maggie.  Cam and I got to have special toy time the other day.  This is when Cammie gets to play with anything she wants to and I get to play with one of my "can't leave down all the time" type of toys.  Mom and I actively play a game with my toy (either Fetch or Siberian Fetch or maybe Tuggy-Tug) and Cam does anything she wants to.  Hmm.  Something about Cammie being more gentle with her toys than I am.  Whatever.

Mom let me choose my toy this time from the secret stash of special toys!  It was so exciting!  I chose my Fishy!

I haven't played with Fishy for a long, long time! I first met him when I was a little puppy. He's been through a Fin-ectomy and a couple minor surgeries.  Something seemed a bit different about him now ... something was a little ... fishy!

"Something seems a little fishy, Fishy!"

I couldn't quite figure it out at first ... but then it hit me.  Compare us in the photo above to this FLASHBACK PHOTO!!!

Me and Fishy in October 2013

Do you see what I see?  Clearly Fishy SHRUNK!!!

I still really loved playing with him, though.  Mom and I did some Siberian Fetch, then moved on to Tuggy-Tug:

"I know, Mom.  'Keep it gentle', right?"

I had a great time - and I think Fishy did, too.  He got through the play session without needed any more surgeries, so that's a good thing.  I can't wait to play with him again!

I just wonder ... isn't it fishy that he shrunk?

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. Wow he may have shrunk but you still got him looking like a fishy unlike my bunny which really looks like a voodoo doll. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Oh yes, smells very fishy to me, maybe we should get one of our blogsville detectives on the case?

  3. OMC - did your mom stick him in the dryer??? mom says her t-shirts shrink sometimes in there....

  4. maybe you forgot to feed fishy

  5. Fishy certainly DID shrink.... Maybe your mom took too many stitches when she had him in fur the FinEctomy Repair...

  6. Hmmmm, did your Mama put him in the dryer for too long?? He does seem to have shrunk...a lot!!!

  7. Do you think he got in warm water and shrunk? Surely YOU couldn't have grown bigger !

  8. Ha! Fishy definitely shrunk. Maybe you need to get a bigger fish?

  9. Fishy sure did shrink! He must have been depressed being stored on that out of the way shelf, Maggie. Do you think he'll start to grow now that you're playing with him?

    Love ya lots♥

  10. He did shrink! In another few months he will be nothing more than a guppy!
