Doggie Crack...

Mom just brought by a bag of cheese and bacon dog treats.  Maggie knew what the bag was and immediately went ape-shiat bananas. 

"Gimme, gimme, gimme," she seemed to say with her frantic little dance on the floor.

"Should I give her some?" my mother asked.

"Give her two," I replied, smiling. 

These little moments make me wonder if this is how parents feel about their children on Christmas day.  The sheer joy of this little moment with Maggie is shared with Mom and me.  Despite the endless dog hair and Maggie's incorrigible need to slumber the day away, I love her dearly.  She has brought so much joy and personality to this little house in J-Ville.

In regards to Maggie's you brush her a lot to get the loose hairs out?

my dog simon (sir poopalot on my blog) goes nuts for certain treats. he really is intolerable because he knows what cabinet they are kept in and he sits and stares at the cabinet endlessly.

Hey (m)ary,
Put a chair or sofa by the front window. Sir P. Will think he's died and gone to heaven - being able to look out at all the goings on. Maybe the lure of the cabinet will fade.

Just an idea. Dogs are good people aren't they?
: )

Toooo funny. Just yesterday I refered to Snausages as 'Doggie Crack'.
My girls go nuts when I treat them with a bag. Usually we just have the regular biscuits.
Love your pictures of Maggie.

Seeing your children fully joyful is what "it's" all about. I'm glad you feel joy when Maggie is happy. It's nice to share in joy no matter who is having it!


like a cat with her catnip.

happy Labor day!!

I'm happy to hear that you are keeping Maggie perfectly spoiled...that's what dogs are for, right?

Happy Friday Andrew---

Just enjoy her, hair and all. My cat died yesterday and even though I had him for 15 years, it wasn't long enough. I spent all day yesterday crying.
