Wordless Wednesday - The Most Important Meal of the Day

Actually, Maisie considers all meals to be equally important.   Breakfast just comes first.

"breakfast.  good.  yes."

 "now I must rest and digest. wake me when it's time to leave."

Mondays Require Extra Effort

I was lucky enough to spend the weekend at a yoga/spa retreat in the Berkshires.  I was really excited to de-stress, but of course I was also very nervous about leaving Maisie. She stayed at her daycare for the two nights I was away, and it was the first time I've left her overnight since we moved here.

Of course, I called the daycare to check in and was told Maisie was doing great.  The wonderful owner told me she even slept downstairs on the couch so Maisie could sleep with her (she has cats upstairs and rightly thought it wouldn't be the best idea to let Maisie near them for an extended period of time).  Knowing Maisie was enjoying herself allowed me to enjoy beautiful views like these.

But since Maisie was on a different schedule (i.e. one not including me) for the last couple days, it was extra hard to get her to leave the bed this morning.  See for yourself...

I can't help but smile when I see that tail wagging.  She's adorable even when she's ignoring me, right?  ;)

Car Rides

Maisie has a very dysfunctional relationship with my car, and therefore taking her for a ride is always an adventure.  She is uber-protective of the car itself, and barks insanely when anyone (strangers or someone she knows well, it does not make a difference) comes within ten feet of it.  This makes red lights interesting, as Maisie routinely scares the bejeesus out of pedestrians who have the nerve to innocently walk past our vehicle.  She also barks like crazy if I leave her in the car for a few minutes, like earlier this week when I had to run into CVS to pick up a prescription on the way home from work.  I left the sun roof open for ventilation and could still hear Maisie barking while I was INSIDE THE STORE.  *sigh*  As I said, always an adventure.

On the plus side, Maisie LOVES going for car rides.  As long as we are moving, she is perfectly content to take a nap, watch the world go by through the window, or just simply relax in the backseat.

And if she starts feeling that familiar urge to chew, there's always an antler nearby to scratch that itch!
