Indoor Soccer Arena

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  I still had oodles of energy after yesterday's walk, a Crazed River Otter Games session with Cam, Pickle time, more CROG, zoomies, etc. ... so Mom decided we could turn the living room into an indoor soccer arena.  Awesome!

She shared this photo with her FaceBook friends, with the caption "Indoor soccer with Maggie. There IS no getting the ball past her!":

Mom's foot, my ball, and me!

Lest anyone think she was exaggerating my soccer skills, check these shots out!

"Got it!"

Oh.  Yeah.  You may have noticed I may have found a slight rip in the cover for my ball.

"Ha!  Got it this time!"
"I don't think so, Mom!"

... And that rip appears to be getting bigger.  Crazy, huh?  What can I say?

I don't always depend on grabbing that, though.  I mean, it IS soccer, so ...

"Gonna get it past you this time, Mags!"
"No chance, Mom!"

Gotta be quicker than that to get one past me!

I think the final score was Mom -1, Mags 87.  She got a point subtracted for kicking the ball onto the dining room table.  That's not only out of bounds, but she could have broken something.  Sheesh!  Don't bipeds know to be careful during indoor soccer?!!?

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
