Hard Work

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Cam and I took a little bit longer of a walk yesterday with Mom and Dad.  We got going a little bit early, so we could beat the heat.

At first, we went through some of the nearby neighborhoods ...

... then walked through CiCo Park/the county fairgrounds!

We walked up the big road and got to one of the entrances to Hudson Trail, as you saw yesterday. Here's another shot of us posing:

Two things of note there - number one, you can tell we were getting a bit warm (we were about at the two mile mark by then) and number two, I like this shot better than yesterday's since neither one of us is looking at Mom. But I digress...

Next, we headed down Hudson Trail.

"This feels nice, doesn't it, Cam?"
"Yes!  Much cooler in here!"

It was nice and shady down there, and that part is unpaved, so it's cooler on our feety-feet.

Before we knew it, we were back out in the hot sun again. We paused briefly for a photo by our water tower:

"Hey, look, Peeps!  Someone's following us!"
"I wonder if they'll give us ear-scratchies?!"

Once we got to the water tower, it was all downhill and home! We got a quick drink, then it was right to work! That's right! Mom and Dad are in the midst of a huge landscaping project that requires lots of hours out in the sun, bending, pulling, sweating, shoveling, raking, moving rocks around, hauling heavy stuff, digging - and lots, lots more! It's exhausting! Fortunately for them, I'm right there with them, helping every step of the way.

"I can oversee the whole project from here.  I sure hope they aren't late with my lunch..."

Well, not so much helping every step of the way as supervising from the comfort of the bed and an air-conditioned house. But I'm with them in spirit!!!  Besides, supervising is hard work!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. How do you keep their coats so pretty and shiny? So beautiful!

  2. Now Maggie.....you just know your mom wouldn't forget your lunch or Cam's. I won't tell her you said that.....might hurt her feelings. Keep up the good work.

  3. a long walk and a hard supervising job....you deserve a treat :)

  4. We would be right there with you on the bed, Maggie, if only we could get to those darn beds:) We headed out for a walk this morning hoping to find all that cool air they keep promising us. All we found was a pretty sky and some hot, humid air:( Big rains coming tonight (just like this morning), so maybe that cool air is just around the bend.

  7. What a great day you all had. I think you have the bestest job of all. I am sure they couldn't do it without your trained eye watching them.

    Ziggy Out!!

  8. You got that right, Maggie! The best supervisors supervise from the Aire-conditioned bedroom and never miss a break or a meal!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  9. walking down shady paths is so nice when it is hot and we agree - you found the best place to dogervise the peeps while they work - tell them not to overdo it though

  10. Grreat job, Maggie. I know they couldnt' do it without you.
