Working On It!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Mom is still working on her birdie photos from Saturday.  I'm helping, of course -- you know, doing things like helping with the ID, making sure she stops to take me outside every so often, or getting her to fill our Pickles up so Cam and I can play.  But anyway ... she's working on it.  In the meantime ...

Sunday, we headed out on a nice family walk.  We went up the big hill, then stopped to strike a pose at that Old Chicago place.  While we were posing, Cam and I noticed something very interesting!

"I think that new coffee shop is open!"
"It has to be!  There are people on the patio!"

Isn't that cool?  We have a new coffee shop right in the neighborhood!  We thought we should go over, order some drinks, and welcome them!

Dad ordered some stuff while we made ourselves at home on the patio.  It was sunny and mighty warm, but there were people to meet, and that made it GREAT!  We love schmoozing people!  The manager was very nice and we hope to make this a regular stop!

After coffee, we posed for pictures!

"The sun's in my eyes, Mom."
"Do you have treats?"

We posted that one to their FaceBook page.  We also switched sides, to see how that would look:

"Seriously?  Do we get the treats now?"
"OK!  Big smiles!"

That was mighty fun.  I think we're going to like having a coffee shop on one of our walking routes!  Next time, I think I'll try ordering a double shot of espresso - wouldn't that be great?!?!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. Hmm... Sibe hyped on coffee... We bet your parents will love that.

  2. mom would love to meet you girls on a coffee shop patio - but we all think maybe Maggie should be kept away from the espresso :)

  3. The coffee shops are a must in order to keep the parents moving.

  5. Seriously a coffee shop in your own neighborhood...is it near the Kansas Ocean? My mom would surely faint if we had a coffee shop here in our neighborhood.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  6. We are sure you will get more walks if you peeps can grab coffee too!

  7. We hope it is a really good place and will have treats for doggies!

    Your Pals,

  8. Coffee on the walking trail would be great. There is a little coffee shop in the village but you have to cross multiple railroad tracks to get there and Mom won't do that with me on a leash. Too many cars zipping through there as well as the trains. We'll just have to walk caffiene free.
    That looks like a GREAT coffee place though.

  9. Pizza and coffee? Lots of good places to take your peeps on your walks! Our mommy isn't a coffee drinker but she loves pizza!

  10. We hope you girls at least got a big cup of whippy cream. Did lots of people want to pet you beauties?

  11. You two know how to pose so beautifully!!!! I don't know about that double shot, Maggie - you will have the ZOOMIES!

  12. You lucky girls - a coffee stop on your walk - what fun. You look soooo sophisticated posing outside.
    There's a café near to us which is not on our regular walk, but if we ever go by, we're too early and it's never open. So I can't try a puppicino or a double espresso.
