Playtime!!!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Sometimes, after our morning walk and zoomies session, Cam and I play together on the deck, then we get playtime in the yard with Mom - one-on-one.  It's great fun!  I had a really good round of Siberian Rules Fetch the other day and thought I'd share some photos!

Mom gave my Tennis-Ball-on-a-Rope a good toss up on the top tier of the yard.  I ran after it, scooped it up, then ran all over the yard with it!  That was awesome!  Here I am, coming back up from the middle tier:

"Wheeeeeeee!"

So.  Much.  Fun!

I gave the toy back to Mom ... eventually.  She chucked it on the top tier again and ...

"Mom?  I think you might want to put that chain saw Dad just bought for you 
to work before we do much more throwing up here!"

So... after Mom got my Tennis-Ball-on-a-Rope out of the tree (ahem!), we went down to the middle tier.

"C'mon, Mom!  Throw it!  Throw it!"

It's more straight and open for longer throws down there!  I love to run after it, then bring it up to the top tier.  After  she got tired of having to run up the hill after me   she figured it out, Mom walked up the hill after she threw it so she could take some action shots of me running up the hill.

"Got it, Mom!  Here I come!!!"

I'd give it to her up there ...

"Give, Mags!"
"Here you go, Mom!"

... then we'd run back down to the middle tier and start the fun all over again!  (Mom and I play very LITTLE tug, as apparently I'm still learning to actually give the Tennis-Ball-on-a-Rope back.  Whatever.)

Cool action shot of me!

GREAT fun!  Oh - and tomorrow, Cam will show you what she got to do!!!

Do you get cool one-on-one playtime with your mom or dad?  I hope so - and I hope it's as fun as what we do!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  3. Hawwooo Miss Thatcher! A lovely day there indeed, great pictures~ pops says it's very important to spend time mano-a-mano with each pup, we all have something we do and enjoy really well- like Isis get's to play off leash. Timber and I would never be allowed off leash. Play bows,

    NukNuk,

    ps pops got a handsfree belt and lines ordered for us! We can't wait to try it out,
