Box!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  There are some crazy things going on here on the west side of town lately!  It all started the other day when we saw that one box out in the wild.  We told you about that one, remember?  Things got even wilder a day or so later!

We were walking up the hill by the big road...

"What a great day to be in Kansas, huh, Cam?"
"Beautiful!"

Then I saw it!  In the drain that runs into Little Kitten Creek!

"A BOX?!?!?"

It was a box, alright!  And it was trapped!

"I've got to get it out of there!"

Some ne'er-do-well had tossed out this poor, unsuspecting box and it ended up in the drainage pipe!  What kind of fate is that for a box?!?!

"Hang on, box!  I'm coming for you!"

I tried, but I couldn't get to it.  It could have been the steep bank, it could have been the mud in the drain, it could have been my leash and Dad saying, "No", but at any rate, I was unable to reach the box.

"Don't worry; I'll send help."

I made a metal note to call someone about it when we got home.  I wasn't sure who ... maybe a Boxer rescue group?

I was still lamenting the poor box, stuck in the drainage pipe and all, when we got up to the shopping area.  Cam, being the stellar sister that she is, took it upon herself right then to help me take my mind off of it.

"C'mere, you little crazed river otter!"
"Ummpphhffff!" 

She's the b-e-s-t!!!!

I'm still a bit worried about the box, though.

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  1. We think the box will be fine. They tend to do well on their own. Now if there was anything inside of it, that is another story!

  2. You are so kind to be concerned about the box's fate; however, we think Hailey is right and the box will be fine. But you are doing your working breed status great honor to try to rescue it.

  10. Maggie, you need to check back in that area right now. If you had winds there like we did here, we bet that box got blown out of its trap. Who knows, it could be on its way to OP by now:)

  14. We can't believe someone would abandon that poor little box!! Maybe you should call UPS and have one of those men in the brown trucks pick it up and deliver it to you!!
