Tower of Power

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  Some of you were wondering what I was up to in yesterday's Wordless Wednesday post, so I thought I'd let you know what Mom and I were up to!  We were having a little one-on-one time, playing one of our favorite games -- Toy Tower!  It's a game where Mom takes a bunch of my toys and builds a tower while I wait ever so patiently ... then I knock it over.  It's great fun!  It goes something like this:

"Ready, Mom?"
"Go for it, Maggie!"
"Hey, look!  How did that happen!?"

It is so seriously fun!  We played several rounds!

"Can we go again?"

Side note - my GoughNuts toy makes a great chin-pillow!

OK - back to the action!

"Wowzers!  Look at that - a partial tower knock down!"

It was really cool!  And look at how that ball is balancing!  It gave me an idea!

"Check this out!   I can balance the ball, too!"

As you can tell by my ears, it took great concentration to do that!  Unfortunately, it gave Mom one of those crazy ideas she gets.  The things I put up with around here ...

"Yeah.  Funny, Mom.  Fun-ny."

Yeah, so even with that "GoughNuts on My Head" pose tossed in, it was a super fun Toy Tower session!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

  6. Well, I think that looks like a fun game to play. I need some of those gough nuts too. BUT only if the Momster keeps them off my head. We also think you taught your MOm very well how to stack toys:)

  15. Love the tower. An author friend of mine in Chicago who has a dog blog asked me to share a dozen or so of my favorite dog blogs and you are on the list. You'll like his post and like meeting four-legged "Sam". https://walkswithsam.com/2019/10/13/heres-a-treat-the-best-dog-blogs/
