Maggie Is 7!!!!

Hi everybody!  It's me, Ragnar!  Today is a very special day here at Ao4 Headquarters -- it's my big sister's birthday!!!  Everybody, help me wish Mags a happy birthday!

Polargold's Margaret Thatcher!!!

There's been all kinds of singing and special hugs & kisses and lots of happy stuff!  Oh.  And a treat or two -- that's how Mom got that picture up top!

And presents!!!  The best gift so far is cool weather!  We had a ton of rain, and then this morning it was breezy and cool!  We celebrated by taking a nice, long walk!

Maggie and me!

Mom and Dad surprised us by taking a turn down a road neither Mags nor I have been on!

"This is exciting, huh, Mags?"
"It's GREAT!!!"

We got 5.25 miles in!  When we got home, it was all we could do to get a drink ... then do zoomies and play, play, play for a while!  Then we went out on the deck and played some more.

Mom took us out front for a birthday photo shoot.

"Man with a truck in the cul-de-sac, Mags!"
"It's the FedEx guy.  He's really nice!"
"Look this way, puppies!!!  Maggie!  Ragnar?!?"
"I ... think ... she might have treats, Mags.  Let me peek ..."
"Still not gonna look!"

We got treats anyway - since it's Maggie's birthday!  Is this a great day or what?!?!

And here are a couple favorite pix of her, just because!  Here we are at the top of a hill in CiCo Park:

Me and Maggie!  She's doing her Prime Minister Look.

She's very regal, isn't she?  Err ... I mean "prime ministerial".  Whatever.  Like a chieftain or a carl, as we Vikings say!

And here she is on one of our local trails:

The Mag-star!

More celebrations to come later on, according to Mom!  Please help us celebrate!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAGGIE!!!!!!!

  2. OMD, Mags, are you really 7 whole years old?!?! You're so grown up and mature now!
