Who's A Good Girl?

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie!  It was hot again yesterday (something about "Summer", "Kansas", "thank God for air conditioning"... I'm not sure) so Mom resorted to indoor games.  Again.  Now, even though I had a good coat-blowing/Fur-nado-making session a couple of weeks ago with Mom and the Master Blaster, I still have to get brushed a lot.  Mom tries to do a little bit every day.

Since it was too hot to do the brushing outside, Mom did a little bit in the living room yesterday.  Afterwards, Mom asked, "Who's a good girl?" and I struck this pose:

"Who IS a good girl?!?"

THEN she said that I am a good girl!  ME!  It was so cool!  I even got a treat!

"Just for that, I'm going to help clean this mess up, Mom!"

It was awesome!  And I must admit, I rather enjoyed the brushing session.  I mean, I'm no Cammie -- I'm not going to fall asleep while Mom brushes me, but it was rather relaxing!  I thought since she gave me a treat, I should pitch in and help clean up.  It's only fair - right?  Like a treat for Mom.

"Mom?  Could you move, please?"

Do you ever help out with the vacuuming?  I just love it!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Keep Them Guessing

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  Like many of you, we've been dealing with temps way over 100 degrees, with heat indexes in the 120s.  Hot.  Very hot, you could say.  We exercise early, then enjoy indoor activities for the rest of the day.  Of course, we do need to go outside to "use the yard".  Cam goes on the nearest patch of grass, then turns to come right back into the air-conditioning.  Me?  I like to do this:

"Mags?  Let's go! Ready to come in?"
"Nah, I'll just sit here for a bit."

What can I say?  I like to keep them guessing.

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Serene Scenery Sunday?

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie, here with this photo for you today:

Me, watching intently!

I know. You're wondering, "Birdies? Bunny? Kit-cat?" Even better. My very favorite neighbor Tao is replacing his mailbox. I offered to help, but he seems to think he can do it without me and Mom didn't want me sitting in his driveway, watching. Fine. But I'm not giving up.  I'll stay right here and supervise from here.  You know -- in the air-conditioning.  It's hot out there!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Beat The Heat

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  Yesterday, I took a very early morning walk to get out there before it got way too hot.  To burn more energy later in the day, Mom and I played indoor Siberian Rules Fetch with my Squeaky Red Football. Here's one of the times I ran off with the Squeaky Red Football and tried to destroy it:

"You're going down, Squeaky Red!"

It's a great way to beat the heat!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Photo Finish Friday

Greetings to all!  It's me, Mags.  The other day, Mom wanted Cam and me to do some porch posing for her.  This is pretty much the best we gave her:

"Hey.  I see someone across the street!"
"Is it the new neighbors?"

Sadly, it wasn't the new neighbors, nor did Mom have treats.  It is a nice shot of the Sweet Potato Vine and all the other stuff in the porch pots, though!

Stay cool, everyone.  It's beastly-hot out there!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher

Hello, everyone! It's me, Cam. So there Maggie and I were last night, just relaxing before dinner, when I heard Mom start slicing up a ...


Quite possibly my very favorite food in all the lands.  And this one is a real beauty, too.  We were more than happy to do a quick taste-test for Mom, to make sure it was OK.

Mmm.... CANTALOUPE!!!!!!  Do you have a favorite food, too?

Wordless Wednesday


Cam and Mags

PS:  Mom says thanks for the kind words on yesterday's post.  This was for the thumb on the non-broken wrist side, to clear up any confusion.  She really knows how to fall!

PS again:  Burgers!!!
