Who We Are

I Think We ARE In Kansas!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  This morning, before heading out on our walk, Mom checked and rechecked the radar a bunch of times.  We were supposed to get storms starting at about 4 in the morning, but they decided to go to Kansas City instead of here.  There's more to do there, so I totally understand.  Anyway, seeing nothing on the radar, we headed out!

"There might not be anything on radar, but it doesn't look real good out there."
"Yeah, Mom."
"Uhh... maybe it's just a little mist..."

We kept going.  Mom can be as stubborn as a Siberian Hu---oh.  Never mind.

When we were about 2 miles out, Mom decided to do a short video of the conditions.

I think Dorothy and Toto would have headed home.  But us?  There was no lightning in our immediate area, so we kept going!

"Hey, look!  Work Zone!"
"That must be for us.  You know - since we're Working Breed pups!"

There was no one working in the Work Zone other than us, so we powered on through.  We were just picking up speed when ...

"Hey!  What are these things?"
"Speed bumps!  Everybody slow down!"
"I think we're OK, Mags..."

Hey. Safety first -- right?!!?

Anyway, we got a good walk in, and even though Mom looked like a cold drowned rat by the time we got home, I think she enjoyed herself.  I know Ragnar and I did!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher


  1. Yep, those storms came to Kansas city but first stopped in Overland Park. We had about two hours of heavy rain, lots of wind (we heard it on its way in your video), thunder and lightning, and VERY dark skies. Then a break, and now more rain, but much lighter. The grounds are soaked. But yep, it's Kansas, so it won't be long before it is dry again.

    I LOVE hearing your little feety feet footprints and seeing you on your exciting walk!
    now if Mom just hadn't gotten soaked to the skin! glad you all got home safely. xoxo

  3. That sure was blustery in your video. You two sure looked like you were enjoying your walk.

  4. You are very brave to face the storm.

  5. Did you see any red sparkly slippers while you were walking?

  6. Walks in the rain can be nice! You should get a nice raincoat like mine!
