Squirrels, squirrels and more squirrels….

Or was it the same one only seen on three different occasions?

Maggie, I have to tell you, I have seen on three different walks over the

weekend, three squirrels. And they weren’t on their designated “Squirrel Trail”

They were on YOUR trail! I think they know you aren’t around anymore

to keep them off YOUR trail.


When I saw them, I remembered back to a time you did a very bad thing

trying to get one at our house. Now, that said, you never, ever, EVER tried

to destroy or chew anything that you weren’t supposed to. Even as a pup!

But this one occasion, it was a squirrel that put you ‘over the edge’. You were

very much an adult when this happened too but if I recall correctly, you did

have four legs then, so could really

run fast! You chased that squirrel around

and around the garage, then thru the flower garden next to the house. Until

it finally scurried up INSIDE the corner of the house trim. I was in the house

watching you. And then, all of a sudden you started ripping apart the vinyl

sided corner of the house after that squirrel! Good thing I was watching you

and got you to stop!

I don’t know if that squirrel ever did come back out. I think he waited until

you came back in the house!

Just thought I’d show everyone how C-U-T-E you were as a pup…here’s a

great one. See, you didn’t even chew my boots as a pup! Missing you….

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. Awww Maggie you sure were a cute pup and cute as an adult too. You better make your presence known on your trail to scare those darn pesky squirrels away. At least you never chewed up anything. Snickers just chewed a hole in my carpet in my bedroom. Good thing classes are in order LOL

  3. C U T E is an understatement!! Waaaaaaay beyond cute and adorable and precious…..just no words to describe that kind of cute!!

    I love it when I see your post come up because, not only do we get to see her sweet avatar picture, but I know we’ll see more photos and get to hear another great story about our beloved Agile Cow Dog Maggie! And you did not disappoint!

    I think those squirrels on the trail are probably beingled by that “house” squirrel! I also think you sent those squirrels there just to give your mom and “wink” and a smile! I kow her walks n yur trail are bittersweet, but I also know youmleft her with soooooo many happy trail walk memories for her to surrou dherself with. Bet you ut so e stickson the trail where she least expects it…yep…that’s just you saying “hello mom” and reminding her of the great times you had!

    Thank you sooo much for giving us our smiles today! We ALWAYS love hearing from you two! “Good girl Maggie! Good girl!!”

    Love and hugs!

  4. PS…..Not sure if I mentioned this before…but I actually read that article on Maggie in “Animal Wellness Magazine” long before Happy Hannah and I started this journey. Was impressed then and even more impressed now!!!

  5. I guess you are so right…same “look” as a pup! I never really saw that in that picture until you said it… Bad Mom! 🙂
