We woke up this morning to a balmy measly 6 degrees AND windy!  Yuck.  I don’t like to go out in that kind of weather unless Mom goes out with me!  Later in the day, me, Mom, Papa and Haley went for a short walk in a logyard where my Mom’s lumbermill keeps their logs.  We go there ’cause it’s plowed for me to walk safely.  I still had to be careful though.  Mom kept me on leash cause the center of the road where they’d been driving over it alot was slick and she feared if I saw a deer or something, I’d fall on that slippery part of the road. 

Later in the day, we went outside again one last time for the day.  I get really crazy toward the end of the day.  My Mom always says it is when my ‘prey drive’ kicks in…that was the time of the day she and I always liked to practice agility…cause I was just full of energy then!

Because of all the wind, it has blown the snow all over the place and now where the snow remains, it is ROCK SOLID.  I was feeling pretty silly and I took off cause Mom was chasing me out of a deer poop pile ( I just LOVE to eat deer poop!) and I ran just as fast as I could thru the hard packed snow…but it got deep toward the end and I got hung up in the stupid snow again 🙁  My Mom worries so much about me hurting my one back leg.  I’m trying to be careful but sometimes I just feel like I can do anything..just like I could with four legs…but I get reminded I can’t do the things I used to do, or at least as easily as I used to.

My Mom gave me a massage later just to be sure I was OK and didn’t hurt myself….I just LOVE my massages my Mom gives me 🙂

Maggie was diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma on her left knee. She had amputation done on October 20, 2009. Four days after surgery she had a low grade fever and was off her food for two weeks! Trying times.. I am grateful and so pleased with how she is progressing now.

  1. Deer poop???! YUCK!!!!! 🙂

    Glad to hear that Maggie is having a blast!!! I think that you probably overdo it on purpose… just to get that nice massage by your mommy afterwards… You sneaky (but smart) girl, you!!!

  2. Yummmm… I love deer poop! And my peeps thought I was the only one who went crazy every evening. I don’t know about “prey drive” – I just like to drive them mad with my Whirling Dervish act. Codie Rae called it Hammer Time, I call it My Time!

  3. Hi Maggie and Mom,
    This is the first time I have run across your blog- my Maggie, a black pug, is also a rear amp, and is almost 11 years old. Right after she lost her leg a block or two was as far as she could go. Now she can walk a mile or more, and go up and down hills. So give it some time, Maggie will get stronger, and Mom may relax a little (or maybe not…).
    Looking forward to hearing about more adventures.

  4. Sounds like you are having weather like we just got rid of! I think I would probably like deer poop, I always seem to find cat poop to enjoy! It really bothers my pawrents when I eat that stuff. They should try it, they might like it!

  5. MMMMMMMMmmmm. I try to snarf up as many moose nuggets as I possibly can before my mom chases me off the pile. Moose are the largest member of the deer family, so I’ll bet deer poop tastes like moose nuggets only in a smaller package…My mom says that I act like I have found a big pile of candy when we come across a winter nugget pile. People are crazy.
