I am sure a lot of you that have been keeping up with my blog have heard about Maggie more than once. Well she has quit chewing things since we moved back to IL..It was like she thinks she got her message out about wanting to move up North.
She chewed my shoes the night before we moved and I had to go to WM and find a pair of Shoes so I could drive over 650 miles. The very day we got to this house she quit chewing...Just quit...but she still lets me know what she thinks and wants in other ways, She is actually faking how good she is going to be now that we have a fence up and she showed us that she could still jump the fence if she felt like taking a run out in the woods and she lets it be known that you can call her all you want and she will ignore all the offers of a treat or a cookie and will come back when she gets good and ready

She also considers herself a guest and goes in the guest room to take a nap when she feels the urge
And she will also rough house and play with Calli when ever she wants and where ever she wants

She will be the Co-pilot when we go in the car and have her head between us in the front seat so she can watch for a farm that has Cows...Maggie Loves Cows and she can recoganize a farm coming up and will turn around and look out the side window so she can see them. She even knows which side of the back seat to look out. I have never heard of a dog that loves to look at cows...but that is Maggies favorite thing to do when she gets to go in the car and she loves to ride in the car no matter what the weather is. The other 3 girls just lay down and enjoy the ride...but not Maggie..Its all about Cows. Has anyone ever heard of a dog that likes to do that?

She also thinks I should share my recliner and thinks if she turns her head to the side that I can't see her. She does get down when I tell her to but does it very slowly...never in a hurry

This pose is supposed to make me feel guilty and let her out in the yard and trysting her not to jump the fence..That doesn't work any more and she is now back to a chain again and can't play with Calli when on a chain
There is a hole in the kitchen door for the cats to go out and use the litter box and she thinks if she sticks her head through it that maybe she will get to go out and go in the car.

Maggie will still eat anything you leave out that she can reach. She ate 2 chocolate cupcakes yesterday and then for dessert she ate a carton of cooked chicken livers that are supposed to be to mix Annies meds in. But of course if anything is left in her reach she thinks it is for her. I wonder how many of you can name some of the things that Maggie has devoured.

You would think after 2 years Billy would remember not to leave food on the counter. I told him to put food in the microwave or the oven if he has to set it down for a few minutes. She hasn't figured out how to open either one of them....YET

I would like to share a new blogger with you and I just Love her blog..Her link is on the side bar on the left and is "I Am Art" Please go and check her out and tell her I sent you. You just have to see the Tea Wallet she made..I just Love it and hope she has some made to sell soon. I think they would make great Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers,
My daughter Nellie finally put a new post in her blog (link over on the right side bar) and I am so happy and proud of her. Not only is she a Nanny but she also writes for a newspaper in Chicago and is now producing Comedy shows for 2 Well known Comedy Theatres. If I was closer I would be attending her shows but we are just a little to far but I get to hear about her achievements every day. She just signed a contract tonight and she even has a name..The Youngest Child Productions" It has always been her goal to do exactly what she is doing now and let me say it again..I am very proud of her.
Be sure and check out my selling blog for my specials in honor of all 4 dogs needing a trip to the vet :) I have sold a few things this past week and even had a customer from Japan buy some soap. I will be in another craft show on the 12th and will be taking a lot of the things there that I have in my selling blog and when there gone...there gone.

Thank you for reading my blog and I would love to have you leave a comment and let me know you stopped by :)

So glad to hear that your daughter has chased her dreams and found them..As Linda said not many people are so blessed. You have good reason to be proud of her..
I think you save teh best part of your post for last and thats your Pride in your daughter!!
