Happy Birthday, GrandDanny

Happy Birthday To Woo...
Happy Birthday To Woo..
Happy Birthday, GrandDanny...
Happy Birthday To Woo!!! Woof, Woof, Woof!

Today is a very special day. It is my GrandDanny's birthday. I don't know if I am supposed to say how old he is today, but I am going to anyway! HAHA! He is 62 years old. This is a big birthday for GrandDanny because he gets a new "paycheck" next month. This is good for Maggie because he will buy me treats! At least I hope he does! :-)

The family went out to celebrate last night. They went out to eat and then to Aunt Jennifer's house for birthday cake. I am very mad at my family because I did not get to go to Aunt Jennifer's house. I am not talking to any of them. Well, I will talk to GrandDanny because it is not his fault. But Mommy, Daddy, Momma Gena, Aunt Jennifer, Uncle Paul and even Noah and Jake are all on my list! I missed a trip to the doggy park. Trust me, I knew what I had missed as soon as Mommy and Daddy got home last night!

GrandDanny is at my house with me today! He is working on the boat! We are going to Oak Mountain on Saturday for a day of fun to celebrate Uncle Paul's birthday. (Uncle Paul also has a big birthday on Friday. Again, don't know if I am supposed to tell you how old he is, but I will on Friday!!) I am so excited about Saturday! Me, Daddy and GrandDanny are going to go fishing in the putt-putt boat. (that is as fast as it goes, putt, putt, putt putt.) I am going to have So much fun. We went to Oak Mountain 2 years ago to celebrate GrandDanny's 60th birthday. I barked all day long! I even went into the water... it required a bath when I got home, but it was worth it! I will probably play in the water again this time, and again, the bath will be worth it! You will have to check back next week for some funny stories from my Saturday adventure!! The weather is supposed to be perfect!!

And that's just the dog's life!

I am such a BIG girl

Mommy is so proud of me!! I have stayed out of my bedroom 2 different days this week. How good am I? Mommy makes my bed on the couch and she leaves the small window blinds open and leaves the tv on and I am set to go. I like to watch people walk up and down the street. I like to keep tabs on Dusty and his afternoon walks. I occasionally talk to people as they walk, but I have not torn anything up. I am such a big girl now!

If I could just talk Daddy to giving me a "doggy door" so that I can go to the back yard when I want, but I do not think that will ever happen!!

This weekend is Memorial Day... and my GrandDanny's birthday! Mommy has to work at the store tomorrow but Sunday and Monday will be good restful days at home with the family! Stay safe and enjoy your holiday weekend. (I gotta go clean the house real quick... Momma Gena and GrandDanny are coming over for burgers tonight!!)

And that's just the dog's life!


A Tribute to Maggie!!

Did you hear my tribute from Rod Stewart on American Idol on Wednesday?? It was awesome! He sang it just for me! :-)

And that's just the dog's life!

I am SO sorry...

I have fallen so behind on my blogging. So much has been happening that I have not been able to keep up. Where do I start...

Well, everyone has gotten just about settled in to the new office locations. I have only seen it once, so I do not know. This is just what they tell me. Aunt Jonica is getting very excited about her bakery, and so is everyone else. The health inspector is coming out on Monday and hopefully she can open soon following that!! I have heard a rumor that she is going to be selling homemade doggie treats. I think she needs a professional taster!

Mommy, Daddy and Papaw had their booth at Dog Daze in Trussville last Saturday. I had so much fun. I had to talk to every dog that walked past me. The weather held off for us!

Noah was dedicated at church last Sunday, Mother's Day. I did not get to see it, but I heard that it was sweet! Everyone came to our house for lunch afterwards. I got to see Momma Gena, GrandDanny, Aunt Jennifer, Uncle Paul, Jake, Nina, Papaw, Aunt Dorinda, Uncle Jamie, Meghan, Nanny, Grandma, Aunt Audrey, Barney, Tammy, David & Dianna. Aunt Jen and Uncle Rob even came. Did I tell you that Aunt Jen is going to have a baby? Mommy is SO excited. I am going to have to pass my words of wisdom to Charlie and Lady!!

I also celebrated my 3 year "Gotcha" Anniversary on May 6th. I can not believe that has been 3 years since I joined Mommy and Daddy's family. It has been the best 3 years of my life! While we were at Dog Daze, a man from the Pell City Animal Shelter, my former life, came by. And guess what - he remembered me! Mommy told him that they called me "Shania" that Saturday but I am now Maggie! I think Maggie fits me much better!

Well, now that I have written a book, I think that sums up everything from the last week. See, I told you that we have been busy! Mommy has a wedding this weekend, so we will not see much of her. I have to take care of my boys this weekend (Daddy & Noah are my boys!)

And that's just the dog's life!


Welcome Baby Lexi!!!

I want to welcome Miss Alexis Faith Day to the world. She was born on Monday, April 27th to the very proud parents of Jennifer and Sean Day!! Mrs. Jennifer is one of my Mommy's best friends and Mr. Sean is my friend (he comes over to play with ME!)

I am very excited to have Lexi in Noah's life. They will play together all the time and hopefully not pull my ears too much! It will give me a break from playing with Noah. But wait... this means that there will be more little fingers to help feed me under the table! Hum, this could be a good thing.

And that's just the dog's life!


Kayleigh Update

Mommy and I are sad to say that Kayleigh has passed away. I say that we are sad, but it is actually a rejoice for Kayleigh. Mommy says that her little body had been through so much in the last 11 months that it was tired of fighting.

Mommy keeps reading Kayleigh's blog updates, and it appears that her family is holding their own. They say that they have their good moments and their bad moments. They are having a memorial service for Kayleigh on Sunday in North Carolina. Mommy wishes we could drive there, but we know that it is not possible!

Here is the link to her blog again. There is an address where you can mail cards to her family!

A note from Mommy

Hey Guys,

I want to ask prayer for a little girl. Her name is Kayleigh Ann Freeman. She is 10 months old and is very sick. She was born very premature and has never left the hospital. When she was born, she weighed 1 pound 1 ounce. Kayleigh has endured many surgeries and come through with flying colors when the doctors never gave her hope. She has gone through more in her short lifespan than many people go through in a lifetime. Kayleigh's last surgery was supposed to be a fairly easy one and would give her the opportunity to go home following it. Instead, Kayleigh suffered. Her brain was deprived of oxygen leaving her brain dead. Her brain stems are still going which is allowing her heart to pump and letting her breath but there are no emotions from Kayleigh. Her family feels that this is the beginning of the end for Kayleigh.

Her mom, Amiee, posted a very sweet post that truly touched my heart. I pray that you take the time to read it. She posted it on May 1st.

Please keep this family in your prayers. They have gone through SO much this last year and have so much more to go through!

Their blog is listed as one of Maggie's Friends, but it is also http://www.kayleighannefreeman.blogspot.com/.

Thanks everyone!


Happy Odd Day!

That is right... today is Odd Day. Today's date is 05-07-09, so HAPPY ODD DAY!

Mommy and I heard this on the tv this morning. We forgot how many they said, but supposedly this will only happen 2 more times this century, but we do not know what the dates are. Oh well!

And that's just the dog's life!

Momma Gena and GrandDanny head South

Momma Gena and GrandDanny left without me. I did not get to stow away in the suitcase. I know that it would have been ok with Aunt Vickie and Uncle Brownie for me to visit too. But they did not invite me. :-( I could go fishing with GrandDanny and Uncle Brownie. I could ride the boat and go to LuLu's for dinner. I would be a good girl... I promise (yeah, right!)

It would have been ok with Aunt Vickie and Uncle Brownie, but it would have required Momma Gena and GrandDanny to take my bedroom with them. It would have been a big hassle, plus I would really miss Noah.(Actually, I would really miss my mommy!) I guess it is ok I didn't get to go this time and I sure am looking forward to all the TREATS GranDanny will be bringing me back *hint* Daddy actually mentioned something about GranDanny bringing back some fish but that doesn't sound as good as TREATS to me? Mommy and Daddy promised me a trip to Orange Beach one day. They really want to see what I would do in the sand. Plus, I really do want to ride on Uncle Brownie's big boat. I think there would be tons to smell.

So, Aunt Vickie and Uncle Brownie (and all of their friends who follow my stories) -- I will make it to Orange Beach one day. I promise. And we will make a party of it too!

And that's just the dog's life!


Dog Daze of Trussville

The wedding dog is going back to work... well, for 1 day at least. Mommy, Daddy and Papaw are going to have booths at the Trussville Dog Daze Festival this Saturday. I am SO excited about it. I do not know if I will stay all day (9 am - 4 pm) but I sure am going to try! It going to be tons of fun. Come and see me!!

So, the big moves are over. I would not say complete though. Everyone is in their new offices but not completely organized yet. Mommy's store is back open and looks great... from what I could see from the car. I have not seen Papaw and Daddy's office yet, but Mommy pointed it out to me. I still don't understand. My "desk" (aka - bed) is now at my house. Should have seen the look on my face when Daddy brought it in the other night. I am very excited for my family, but sad that I do not get to go to work anymore. Papaw thinks that he is going to sneak me to work one day, but we will see.

And that's just the dog's life!
