5/25/14 A Perfect Day That Ended In Disaster

Erik came over and the humans put up a volleyball/badminton net.  I had no idea how fun badminton was until I chased that birdie all over the yard!

Dad made a delicious cookout and Mom gave me some scraps.  The day was perfect and I spent the whole day chasing sticks, balls, and the birdie.  Until I found something more fun to play with.

Mom wandered over to the badminton net to check things out and noticed I wasn’t there.  She scanned the yard and did not see me.  She eventually found me in the shade by the pool with my new chew toy that I was destroying.

Except…it wasn’t a chew toy.  It was Erik’s glasses.  They fell off his shirt and into the grass, where I saw them winking in the sun and decided I just had to have them.

I have never seen Mom go nuclear before.  But I did today.

Dad managed to get one of the lenses put back into the frame.  The lens was damaged but Erik was able to at least drive home.  Mom and Dad are buying him a new set of glasses Tuesday.

I ended up on the tether after that one.

No more catching birdies for me.  The end of a perfect day, that ended in disaster!

(droops tail) Love, Maggie

    Hi Maggie — I just found your blog and will be following it! I’m so glad to see that you have a wonderful Forever Home now.
    I also want to alert your humans to my blog, http://maijaharrington.com, where I’m posting chapters from my book-in-progress, “Funny Tails: Adventures and Misadventures in Living with Pugs.” If your humans like humorous dog stories, they should get a kick out of it. It’s a lighthearted look at life with our 3 pugs plus various foster pugs from Pug Rescue of North Carolina. Pugs are a LOT smaller than you. It took us some time to get used to dealing with the little guys, for we’d always had big dogs like you before.
    In the meantime, have a happy summer! (There shouldn’t be any more ice cubes falling from the sky, not to worry.)
    Best wishes,
    Maija (pronounced My-uh)
