Patience Pays Off

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  The other day after lunch, Mom went downstairs to work in her Studio for a while.  I decided to help her.  Well, not so much "help her" as "set up an ambush", hoping Cam would join us.

♫ "Oh, Cammie?!?  Why don't you come on down here?!" ♫

I waited.  And waited.  And waited.

She didn't come down, so I gave up after a couple hours and moved over to lay on that nice, cool tile in the Library.

The next afternoon, Mom and I headed to the Studio once again.

"Do you think it will work today, readers?"

Once again, I waited patiently and quietly.  Before I knew it, Cam had trotted down the stairs and was in the Studio!

She knew I was laying in wait for her, so I didn't have the element of surprise or anything, but it was still great!  We had an excellent round of Crazed River Otter Games (CROG)!


We played and played, then took a short break.

Me and Cam, catching our breath.  Or breaths.  Whatever.

After that, we raced up and down the stairs a bunch of times together, played another round of CROG in the Studio, then Mom said it was time to head upstairs.  We raced up and down a few more times, then grabbed some water in the kitchen.  After that, we settled in like the good puppies that we are:

"That was fun!"
"Gotta get our exercise in, Mom!"

Since we can't go on afternoon walks due to the heat, Mom is happy that we can exercise each other!

Did anyone notice I'm laying on the air conditioner vent in that last picture?  Stay cool, everyone!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. Looks to us like you got the best spot in the house.

  2. MOL MOL Cam and Maggie after years and years of observation it has become clear as crystal to me that the rules for CROG are..........
    there are no rules it is just placed with Sibie abandonment and glee.
    Your mom has a very nice studio set up.
    Hugs madi your bfff

  3. We're glad your patience paid off, Maggie! It's gonna get up to 82 a couple of times this next week so we'll be sure to stay cool until it goes back down to the 70s on the other days.

  4. I bet it's nice and cool down in the studio for CROG!!!! Way to be patient, Maggie! I hope that you stay cool. Share the AC vents!

  5. You girls are so sweet together. Stay cool!

  6. We have been doing our best to find ways to get our exercise indoors. But our ideas and Mom's ideas don't always match up:)
