Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. I don't know what all this talk was yesterday about "someone" being all jazzed up. Usually when Mom says that, she means me, but I'm thinking she MUST have meant Ragnar. I mean, look at how sweet I am!

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Over here.
Why? Well, as Mom likes to say, "Someone is a bit jazzed up." I think she might mean ...
|"Hi. I'm here in one of my auxiliary dens."|
I thought jazz was supposed to be sort of mellow. Maybe that's a different kind of jazz.

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Today, we left for our walk
bright and ea well, dark and early, so we could get a nice long one in. We walked up into where they're putting in a new development, which we haven't done for a while. Much to our mom's delight, the place was packed with sunflowers! We did some poses that made her happy, so we thought we'd share them with you.
What a gorgeous, serene morning! And maybe our mom's right - sunflowers make everyone smile!!!
|Me, Mags, and the sunflowers|
|Mags, me, and more sunflowers!|

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags, here with my bestest kid brother Ragnar. We just wanted to wish all of our dog friends a happy National Dog Day!

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. I figured out a way to help my mom sew even faster on the Pfaff!!!
For some odd reason, she didn't like my attempt to streamline things. Go figure.
|"OK, if I just wedge the pedal under here, it's on all the time! |
Mom doesn't even have to -- wait. Did she just unplug this baby?!?"

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. It was getting toasty on our walk this morning, so Mom and Dad planned for us to take a water break down at about the mid-way point. We were all set to drink when ...
Which just proves the old adage: "You can lead a Siberian to water, but you can't make him drink."
|"Hey! There's a guy firing up the Bobcat!"|
"Oh, cool! Let's stare!"
"Mags? Ragnar? Don't you want some water?!?"
Pretty sure how that goes. Or maybe horses are involved. Everything's better with horses! Yours sincerely,

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. We had a great walk this morning - finally got a good "over 5 miler" in. We were happy to pose for Mom when we took our break, but ...
I would have been happy to wear the shades home, but Mom said she needed them, too.
|"Smile, sweet puppies!!!"|
"How's this, Mom?"
"Yeah, how's t--wait. I'm all squinty!"
|"Here, Mags. Try my sunglasses."|
"Oh. You look cool, Mags."
"Yeah ... hang on. This is better."
|"OK, you guys! Now ... wait, where did those smiles go?!?"|
"We're doing our Tough Guy Look, Mom."

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Today, Mags and I have a few pix of some of the more serene moments from the week. Our first shot was on a route we haven't walked in a while - we get great views of the sunrises at the top of this hill:
We helped our mom do some watering in the backyard this week, which was very relaxing:
I'm not sure about her sometimes!
We're Working Breed pups; we're at our most serene when we're working!
|"Oooh, fog and the sunrise!"|
"I think we have the makings of another scorcher out here today; glad we're walking early!"
|"That bunny better not even THINK about it!"|
"Oh, bunny-schmunny, Ragnar! Live and let live!"
And of course, there is always our work in Mom's Studio:
|"Must ... hold up ... the shelving unit ..."|
"No one's getting through here!"

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. We took our mom and dad on a nice, long walk this morning, did a bunch of zoomies and Snooter Jousting, had lunch, did some more Snooter Jousting, and now we're going to do this for a bit:

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. There's a part of Hudson Trail we lovingly refer to as "Labby Road" -- you know, as opposed to Abbey Road? Anyway, you should be able to see why from this video!
To watch on YouTube, please click here.One of the Chocolate Labs who lives in the last house on the left was still in the house this morning, but I think you get the idea!
Oh. And ... truth be told, I'm rather partial to the super light-colored Labragirl who greeted us first. Tell me she doesn't look fun to chase around!!! Sköl!
Thursday, August 18, 2022
Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. On yesterday's post, our friends Millie and Walter wanted to know, "Was there a little snooter jousting going on there?". These next photos should answer your question ...

It was a dark and stormy
nigh morning ... OH! I mean greetings to all! It's me, Mags. So there we were this morning, caught in a storm on the Hudson Trail ...
When all of a sudden, Dad said, "Check out that dinosaur!" A dinosaur?!?! How scary is that?!? Being the brave warrior that I am, I leapt to our defense!
Mom and Dad kept pointing, but I just didn't see it. Ragnar looked for it, too.
We never did see what they were talking about. I guess it's true about the dinosaurs vanishing and all. Right?
|"I love the feel of the rain on my fur, Mags."|
"And it cooled down the pavement!"
|"Where? I don't see anything, Dad."|
|"Hey, dinosaur! C'mon out if you're brave enough to take on a Viking!"|

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. Despite the heat coming later in the day today, we had a great walk this morning. First we checked the park for cows, horses, sheeps, etc.
We made it back home before it got too unbearable out there - so it was a great, serene walk! Have a wonderful Sunday!
As you could almost see from the photo above, even though we left the house just after first light, it was already getting hot out there. Probably the most serene part of the walk for us was finding a shady spot and taking a water and snack break.
|"Go ahead, Raggi. You first."|
"Is she the sweetest big sister or what?!?"
|"Aw, shucks. I promised our Mama Bebe I'd look after you!"|
"Slurpity slurp slurp ..."
|"Thanks for bringing the water, Dad!"|
"And thanks for the cookies, Mom!"
Saturday, August 13, 2022
Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Some people admire Mom and Dad's garden areas and wonder how they're able to keep up with everything. The obvious answer is - they have help.
It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it!
|"Yeah? Don't you bunnies even THINK about it! Or I WILL stare at you."|
"Good boy, Ragnar!"

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. Yesterday, Mags and I were having a meeting in the Studio, when ...
The Pfaff?!? I knew Mom would need my help with that! I raced right over and got into position!
|"So, I'll keep an eye on Dad's office; you help Mom, OK?"|
"Sounds good to me, Mags."
"Oooh, if you two are in a meeting over here, I'm going to set the Pfaff back up and see if I can fix the tension!"
|"Uhh ... Ragnar?!?"|
"You adjust whatever you need to, Mom. I'll drive."
I made it to that cubby hole JUST in time! Whew! Sköl! Ragnar

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. The humidity was so thick the other morning on our walk, you could see it!
Plus, Mom and Dad brought water for us. And cookies.
|"I've got that Jethro Tull song stuck in my head now."|
"At least it's a good song!"
Monday, August 08, 2022
Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. I've blogged a couple times about our "beans" - our EicosaCap fish oil pills. Usually we just eat them, but ... you know how that goes.
After breakfast the other morning, I gave my mom the "I'm All Done" Look, but ...
I need to remember that if Ragnar can't get there fast enough to eat my bean for me, I need to put it on the BROWN part of the placemat. I forgot. It's much better camouflage!
Stay sneaky, my friends!

Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar. It's Sunday, and I'm in my serene place.
I relax there better than probably anywhere else! ... exceept maybe my carrier. I love it in there, too. Mom says I like to "den". I just know how to get comfy!
|"Ahh! This is the life!"|
Saturday, August 06, 2022
Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. Mom always says she can tell what Ragnar and I are looking at by looking through our "radar ears". Like the other morning on our walk ...
Do you have "radar ears", too? Do your bipeds use them to zero in on what you're looking at?

Greetings to all! It's me, Mags. So ... the other day, when Ragnar and I went out front to take care of some business, we noticed an entire flock of huge, exotic birds in our neighbors' yard! Being the Siberians that we are, we did what every card-carrying member of our breed would do -- we sat and stared.
They were there for a few days. We sat and stared every chance we had, then they disappeared as suddenly as they arrived. It must be migration season for them. It's funny that Mom didn't want to stay out there - I thought she was a "birder"! Go figure.
|"Check 'em out, Mags!"|
"Wowzers, Ragnar! That's a lot of birdies!"
"Umm ... I thought you two needed to go potty?"
|"I think that one on the far right moved!"|
"I saw it, too! Freaky!"
"They are not mov--it was the wind! You do know it's over 100 degrees out here, right?"
Tuesday, August 02, 2022
Hi everybody! It's me, Ragnar! I don't want anyone to think it's all work, work, work for me and Mags when we go to Mom's Studio! We do take time out to do zoomies, Snooter Jousting, play with our toys, and other activities. The other day, for instance, we played Tag. Mags was "it" and we went zooming around the Studio. She thought she had me, but then ...
I think that round went to Mags.
|"Ha! Made it! You can't get me, Mags. I'm on base."|
|"I've got you now, Raggi!"|
"Wait, you can't---REFEREE?!?"
"Foul on the play!"
|"It's the rule, Mags."|
"He gets a 3-second head start now, Mags."
"Yeah, yeah. Who makes these rules, anyway?!?"
Anyway ... I also took a minute the other day to sing "Happy Birthday" to my bestest big sister while we were down there. Here's how that went:
To play on YouTube, please click here.Mags says I have a lovely singing voice. Coincidentally enough, our voices are almost identical. We must get it from our biological mama!!! Sköl!
