Maggie Tales

Hi guys, it’s me, Maggie! See here I am resting by my mom when she’s working.

Did you know? I have two super important jobs. One is making sure my mom doesn’t work too long. I’m pretty good at that. I make her get up to take me on walks, get me treats, let me out back and, of course, eat dinner at 4 p.m. sharp. See my mom is not supposed to slip into her pre-Maggie days of working too long at the computer and hurting her bones and stuff.

Good thing I’m here, right???

Want to know my other job? Mom gave my a pro-mo-tion! It used to be I just played chase with my lizard friends.

But…um…sometimes I accidently, totally not on purpose, kill them. I may have done that twice this week so far.


Anyhow, Mom says I’m now the Director of the Lizard Depopulation Project.

I’m not sure what those words mean, but I suspect it’s that I’m super-duper fast and really good at catching lizards when we play chase. And I am!

Those are my important jobs, what are yours?

    You’re such a good dog, Maggie, and your jobs are super important – especially Director of the Lizard Depopulation Project. Have to keep those little buggers in check out there.

    And your Mom is so funny. ;o)

    I guess around here I’d be ‘Chief Cook and Bottle Washer’. I can also claim ‘Slave to Queen Geriatric Cat’ and ‘Head Baker’.

    Who’s a good girl?!?!?! Maggie is!!!!!!!! 💕💖💕 You’ll keep those lizards corralled and keep your mom fit, too! You have a good (and funny!) family, Maggie.

    Me? I guess I’m Chief Herder of Critters and Provider of Puppucinos.

    Have a great week, Maggie, and go get your mom up. ;)

    Hi Maggie! I love your new title, Director of the Lizard Depopulation Project. You are very good at your job and have earned the promotion! Be very proud. You may want to bury the bodies though so Mom doesn’t have to clean them up.

    You have several great jobs watching over Mom. She is very fortunate to have you by her side.

    I think my most important job is keeping this family going in all ways. The second is my job of Queen Finder of Everything. My guys can’t find anything and I seem to be able to locate things I’ve never even seen. Magic power ;).

    I hope you’ve had a nice day and that the earthquake didn’t upset you. Take good care.

    B.E, thanks, I do my bestest!

    Oh, you have very important work too. I hope your cat is nicer than Corner Cat. The dude scares me because he hides in the bushes when I walk by with my mom.

    Silver, I’m a good girl!

    Wow, you have lots of hard work to do! I know what it’s like to chase critters, you gotta me super fast! In case you didn’t know, pups love it when you provide them treats :-)

    Viki, I’m lucky, because Wizard Dad does all the cleanup. I wonder if that means he’s my assistant?

    Yep, my mom is lucky to have me!

    You must have some powerful magic to find all that stuff. Sometimes i lost lizards and I can’t find them anywhere. Yep, you are very powerful to find all the stuffs your boys lose!

    I didn’t even know there was an earthquake. Mom said it wasn’t very close to us. But thanks!
