What A Walk!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Cam and I took Mom on a GREAT walk this morning, and I can't wait to tell you about it!

It started pretty much like any other walk ...

"Huh.  'Road work ahead'."
"We're doing some road work of our own, right, Mags?"

I'm not sure what they're doing there; they hadn't started work yet.

At the entrance to Hudson Trail, we ran into our Bichon friend Dexter and his mom.  That was pretty cool; he's a nice little guy.  After we visited for a couple minutes, we decided to turn right down that part of the trail for a change.

"This is great!"
"We haven't been down this part of the trail for quite a while!"

We did two legs of the trail, then stopped to pose for pictures.

"How's this, Mom?"
"Yeah, whatever..."

Then Cam told me Mom had some treats in her pocket, so ...

"Smile, Mags!"
"Ha roo, Mom!"

We had about 3 or 4 people come by during our shoot.  They loved us!  One lady said we looked like a picture in a magazine.  Obviously, she reads great magazines!  Another lady stood there talking to Mom for a long, long time.  She couldn't keep her hands off us, and kept saying how soft and sweet and well-behaved we were.  She asked Mom if we were that calm all the time.  Once Mom stopped laughing (nice, Mom, real nice) ... well, you know.  Though I must say, I'm not sure she believed Mom.  I mean the proof was right in front of her!  ... getting ear rubbie-dubbies and sweet-talk and ooooh, it just felt so good!

Anyway!  Eventually, we double-backed down the trail, and headed home.  We were just about to start the downhill stretch when I saw it!  A CAT!  A huge, black cat, right there on the sidewalk!  He was taking up the whole thing, just acting like he owned the place!

Seriously!

Brace yourselves!

It was HUGE!

A huge CAT!!!

With an attitude, I might add.

Take a look!!!

Cam went in first to check it out:

"Seriously, Maggie?!?"

Well, it seemed huge at the time.  I got a BIT closer ...

"Ha roo, kit-cat!"

Oh.  Umm... yeah.  You can't see him there, as he might have been in my mouth.  I just wanted to bring him home, but Mom said someone might be looking for him. I haven't seen any posters up saying anyone has lost a kit-cat, but still, Mom said we should leave it there. Or she might have said, "Leave it." One of the two. Sigh. He seemed like a pretty cool kit-cat.  I set him down in the shade.  It's going to be in the 90s again today; I'd hate for him to get over-heated.

"See you guys!"

Anyway, what a great walk! Thanks for coming with us! The drinks are on me!

Yours sincerely,

  2. aHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH GALS THAT WAS A MEGA WALK FULL OF FUN THINGS. WONDER IF THAT CAT IS PART OF THAT CRAZY POKEMON STUFF WHERE FOLKS LOOK FOR ITEMS? IF SO, he is small and I hope they win something big if they find him.

  9. You do look like magazine dogs! That kitty looks a little strange. I don't think it's real.

  10. What a very fun walk, especially the part with all the compliments and nice pats!!! We have one of those black cats next door who likes to tease us and digs up all the flowers in the front landscape beds. Mom isn't too happy with him - should we send him to you?
