Spring Routine

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Now that Mom is more or less on the downhill slide after her fall, we're getting back to our normal Spring routine!  That means a nice, long walk:

"What a gorgeous day!"
"Blue skies forever!"

Dad's been walking us when Mom couldn't go along, but we've had a lot of all-family walks!  We've even gotten to the point where Mom has walked us alone a couple of times!  She uses the hands-free belt and we are careful to be really well-behaved!

"Must ... not ... grab Cam by the neck!"
"Must ... not ... Cam-stigate play!"

So far, we've been REALLY good!

No, seriously!

Fine, there was one little incident when we just couldn't help ourselves, but we were almost home, and I just couldn't resist trying to get some Crazed River Otter action going and Cammie was game and ... well, it all worked out.  No harm, no foul, Mom's wrists were fine.

ANYway, after our walks, it's time to go relax on the deck!

"Birdie at 2 o'clock!"
"I think it's a Cardinal!"
"Good spotting, girls!"

After that, we like to do a little Siberian-style relaxing!

"Let's play, Cam!"
"You're on, Peep!"

And then, a little mugging for the camera!

"I'm glad you're getting better, Mom!"
"Me, too!"
"Me, too!"

We're all happy to be getting back to the normal routine!!!

"Show everyone how happy you are, Mags!"
"How's this?!?!"

What's your Spring routine like?  We hope you're enjoying yours as much as we are enjoying ours!  Have a happy day, everyone!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. It's good to see everyone so happy.

  2. OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH what excellent news Cammie and Maggie. It must seem like an eternity to your mom!
    I love your brilliantly colored leashes and OMCs your smiles in that last photo are worth a million bucks
    Hugs madi your bfff

  3. we are SO glad you mom is doing better and things are getting back to normal. we love spring for open windows and fresh air...though it is starting to warm up here which means back to the windows being closed.

  4. We are so happy to hear that your mom is almost there! I love my morning walkie just as much as you girls do!

  5. What fun pictures! Our spring routine involves lots of traveling to Auntie's house and playing with the cousins. We're kinda glad we're moving into summer now and get to hang out at home!

  6. We are glad that life is getting back to Sibe normal for you two AND for your Mom. Before long it will be too hot for those long walks. Mom has been trying to get us interested in the little pool, but she thinks we might need some Manhattan encouragement:)

  7. Mom's been out watering every day as Dad put in some new Spruce trees and flowering shrubs in the way back of the property where a big dead tree was taken out. The hose doesn't reach that far so she is hand carrying buckets of water. We're just happy for some sunshine as we had a VERY rainy, cold, and gray Spring.

  8. Routines are good things! Mom says there comes a point in like where changes from routine too often are not good changes. We are lost right now cuz our Spring passed by and we are HOT in summer!

    Your Pals,
