Life Savers!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Wowzers, what an exciting walk Cam and I took Mom on this morning!  It started out like any other ...

"Hey, Mom, we should jog!"
"Yeah, Mom, we should do some jogging!"

We had fun weaving through neighborhoods, meeting and greeting lots of different people. It was great. We also saw about 752 squirrels ... but I digress. We had reached about the halfway point, when Cam and I spotted it!

"Cammie!  Look!"
"Oh, my!  It might be hurt!"

The poor thing!  Laying there, right on the sidewalk.  It couldn't even move!

"Are you alright?!?"

It was a butterfly.  A rather large one.  And despite the smile on its face, I could tell it was hurting.

"I've got this, Cam!"

I tried a little CPR while Cam stood by, ready to assist.  That seemed to help.  But I couldn't just leave it there - right?!?

"Come with me, Butterfly!"

I thought I'd take it home and set it free in our Butterfly Garden!  Mom thought its family might be missing it though, and she suggested we leave it there.  After I administered CPR, it seemed strong enough to make it on its own, so I figured it would be OK.  

Cam said I probably saved its life!  Isn't that cool?!!?  What an exciting walk that turned into!  I can't wait to see what the rest of the weekend holds!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
