Friday Favorites

From reading this blog, you may get the impression that Maisie cares for only three things...antlers, food and her mom.  And it's true that there are things that Maisie does NOT like, such as sitting outside in the hot sun.

 And this dog (who she lunged at during our walk for no apparent reason).

Plus of course, being forced to "wait" before eating a treat!
She also REALLY hates being left home alone, thunderstorms and right now, the Chicago Air and Water Show because it means very loud fighter planes are flying overhead and scaring the bejeezus out of her.

However, I now offer proof that Maisie does take pleasure in other things...some have already been covered here, some may be new information.  As previously mentioned, Maisie loves constantly unmaking the bed.

She also thoroughly enjoys a good belly scritch.

As well as lounging on the futon while her mom works.

One of Maisie's most important jobs is working security.  She prefers to guard the deck while soaking up a sunbeam whenever possible.

Maisie also looks forward to resting in the shade during our walks.

In addition to frogging out on the cool wood floor, post-walk.

And finally, getting to eat that treat for which she waited not-so-patiently!

Happy Friday, everyone!  : )

p.s. for daily Maisie updates and pics, please "like" our Facebook page if you haven't yet...and if you have, thank you!!!

Oh, Maisie...we have SO much in commons! I also like resting in the shade on walks and eating treatsies after being made to wait about 100 years to eat them. AND I like soaking up sunbeams, too! Wow...we could be twins!

Something else...did you see on my Facebook page today about Pit Bull Frogs? (http://pitbullfrogs.blogspot.com/) You totally GOT to get your mom to enter you cuz you have the froggie pose down pat!

Wiggles & Wags,

Sweet Maisie we are wondering if you and Chancy come from the same ancestors. You are a whole lot alike in your likes and dislikes. We really enjoyed reading and learning more about you. You are looking so good with your beautiful shiny coat and bright eyes. Hugs and nose kisses

Maisie is SUCH a sunbeam lover! No dog is as expressive in her face!

I was thinking the same thing about the pit bull frogs! Maisie definitely needs to get in on that action! Thanks for showing us Maisie's likes and dislikes - I was worried that antlers and her mom were the ONLY thing she liked ever. That's a pretty one-sided story so I'm glad you set us straight! ;)

Lucy went away to doggy camp for a weekend while we were out of town, and came home with the knowledge of how to maneuver herself under the covers. Is this what Maisie does? Lucy noses under the covers until they are on top of her, walks part of the way into the middle of the bed, turns around, and walks back out so that the covers reach up to just under her neck. I have never had a dog that did this, and it freaks me out (in a cute way)!
