Bird Watching?

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Cam and I were up way past our bedtime last night, but it was totally worth it.  What were we doing?  Well, you could say we were bird watching ...

Here we are, early on:

"Is Mom watching birdies again, Mags?"
"Yes.  Both she and Dad seem pretty excited!"

It was actually another kind of bird Mom and Dad like.  We were watching the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Stanley Cup finals!!!!

"Oh, it's HOCKEY!"
"I like hockey!  They do a lot of that 'BOOM' stuff!  That gives me an idea..."

I knew exactly how to make things more exciting for us pups!  Cam saw it coming and ran over to sit by Mom.

Mom:  "C'mon, PENS!!!!  You can do it!!!"
"Save me, Mom!"
"Hey, Cam!  Let's get in a little action ourselves!"
"I'll be Sid Crosby and you can be that Subban guy!  BOOM!"
"No... I'll be Matt Murray and you try to score off me!  If you can get past me to Mom, you score!"

You can't blame us both for wanting to be Penguins!  After all ...

they aren't just birdies ...

and they don't just represent the city Mom was born in ...

they WON!!!!!!!

Definitely worth staying up past our bedtime! (And I'm not just saying that because we may have celebrated with a little popcorn!) Do your parents watch hockey? Are you fans, too? How 'bout those Pens!!!!!!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. mom is more into college sports...and she says hockey baffles her. but YAY your team won!!

  2. Our mommy and daddy like hockey too but they haven't watched in awhile. They're fans of the Colorado Avalanche since they lived in CO when that team started there. We like birdies though so yay for the Penguins!

  3. Our Mom got to see a Raleigh Hurricanes game in person once. She got some​ really good seats because the season ticket holders could not go that night. She said it was a lot of fun.

  4. I was glued to the F1 racing this weekend…Go Lewis! I'm afraid hockey doesn't get much coverage over here

  5. Penguins ruled the ice!! WTG!!
    Hugs madi and mom

  6. Dear Maggie, WE have a semi-pro team here in Windsor called the Eagles. We've gone to many of their games and they are more family oriented than some of the pro teams. In fact, the Eagles just got first place in their division or league. It's fun to watch; not sure how I'd like regular hockey though.
    It is raining here~in fact we are under a Tornado Watch, having thunder and hail. Ugh! Hope you have a great afternoon.

  7. Looks like the perfect day over there. Snoozing, TV and bitey face

  8. Congratulations to them on the win!!

  9. Yeah, Ma says she's a little miffed still from last year. The Sharks always get to the finals, butts NEVER win. She gets depressed. So no hockey for her this year! She's all into the BB and the Warriors, which are giving her a heart attack too! Maybe she should give up the sports?? ☺
    Congrats to your burdies!

    pees: Ma thinks that fishie thing is gross. just sayin'....

  10. Woot! Woot! Looks like it was a great night all around!

  11. Congratulations to the Penguins! Actually, I prefer the popcorn to watching hockey.

  12. Woohoo, Penguins! It was an exciting game!

  13. our mom used to follow the Canadians, but we've never watched hockey before. we like to play our own version with soccer balls...wait...do we have the right sport??? Concats to the Penguins! we like how you two get into the game :D
