Maggie Has Another Story

Hi, it’s me, Maggie! I’m here blogger-talking to you all cause my mom is sulking.

She’s kind of mean when she’s sulking. You all see that picture of me? I think my mom photo-magiced it cuz I’m not that gray. Honest-face, I’m not!

What mom? Photo-magiced is too a word. I’m google-pawed it, so there. Can I get back to blogger-taking?

Anyhow, so I have this story about my mom and me. See I’m super friendly like, and I try to make friends with all the lizards. We play chase, and it’s like super fun.  Then the lizards love to play hide and seek. One of their favorite hiding places is outside under the big trashcans. They wait and wait for me to find them.

When I find them, we play chase again. It’s the best game ever! Except mom is always yelling at me, “Maggie don’t eat your friends!”

Mom just doesn’t understand that I tag the lizards with my mouth. Sigh…she’s a good mom but sometimes, I wonder what she does all day when she doesn’t even understand the easy stuff, you know?

But back to the story. I can’t move the trashcans by myself. So I get my mom to do it. I go to the door, I wait for her to open it then I run to the trashcans.  That’s how we’re supposed to do it. But last Saturday, I didn’t even have to tell mom, she went out to the trashcans all by herself. Cool! It was hide and seek time! She must have known the lizards were hiding, and wanted to play. So I went with my mom, and at the trashcans, I went into my Seek Pose. I was all poised and ready to pounce and as soon as mom moved the trashcan.

Only she doesn’t move it. Instead she opens the lid, which is weird cause she wasn’t carrying anything to put inside.

Then she pulled a bag out of the can.

Even weirder. Mom never plays in the trash, and she won’t let me do it either. That’s the rule.

But then…PLOT TWIST!! Really, guys, you’re gonna be so surprised. Mom opened the bag of trash and pulling out all these ripe, wet, smelly things. It was like awesome gross, and mom was making all these shrill human noises. Totally hi-lar-i-ous!! I laughed and laughed! Finally mom got a small bag out of the bigger bag of trash, then she put the rest of the yucky-good smelling pieces back in, tied it up and put it back in the big trashcan.

Then she ran in the house and washed her hands like seven or thirteen times. I’m not sure exactly how many, I’m not as good at math as I am at playing chase, and hide and seek.

As it turns out, Mom had bought some gold chain and shiny stones for her jewelry making, then after showing Wizard, she accidentally threw them in the trash and didn’t remember until the next day!

How funny is that? Guys, when mom buys me something, like a new bone or toy, I never, ever accidentally throw it away and have to dig in the trash a day later to find it.

Do you?

P.S. Mom says she’s letting me play on the Wednesday blog for now until she works out what she wants to do for sure.

    Good save! Usually I don’t discover I’ve accidentally thrown something out until it’s too late.

    And good Maggie for keeping your mom company and sharing her stories with us from your perspective. Such a smart dog. Thanks for filling in for a while. =o)

    Maggie, you are the best lizard-tag doggo in the world! And your poor mom. I’ve had to go through the trash for a time or two. You and my boys might find the smell enticing but trust me, moms don’t! ;) Really glad your mom found her treasures. And good lizard hunting to you!

    PS. You can blogger-talk to us anytime you want. :D

    Maggie, you have one funny mom. I have to admit that I have been known to throw items away without ever taking them out of the bag too. I think it just may be a busy mom thing.

    Playing lizard tag sounds fun for you but are you sure the lizard enjoy it? They may not like the inside of your mouth as much as you may think ;).

    I will stand with you on the photo magiced. It’s a great word. Unlike you, I can actually have my hair colored so no one sees my white hair :). Maybe you can get mom to put up some photos w/o the gray next week. By the way, you’re still one beautiful pup!

    Thanks for filling in for mom again. I love your blogs.

    B.E. Maggie is preening under your praise, LOL! I only realized it was missing because I used my jewelry making tools for something else, and noticed the bag of new pieces wasn’t there. Otherwise, I’d have completely forgotten about it until too late.

    Silver, Maggie says thanks! She doesn’t quite get why we humans don’t enjoy the smell of decaying trash, but she’ll take your word for it. She really was confused by what I was doing, LOL!

    Maggie wants to blog all the time now. Every day is an adventure to her :-)

    Viki, I agree, I get busy with stuff and don’t pay enough attention to the task I’m doing!

    Maggie’s says thank you! She was pretty insistent that photo magiced is a word. But I didn’t do any magic, she really is that gray. It’s kind of weird, but she’s still perfect in my eyes.

    I haven’t yet been able to convince her not to “tag” the lizards with her mouth. I read her your question, but she suddenly had to go see what Wizard was doing, and didn’t answer. :-)
