Margaret's Adventure & The Yard

So Sunday Mom made plans to drive down to Missouri to see her friend Deb.  Mom decides its Margaret's turn to go with her cos she needs to get use to going other places besides just playing around our house.  Margaret thought Missouri is where PUDDLES her IDOL lives so she jumped right in the car and was ready to go at the crack of dawn. 

But Mom I NEED to go with you so I can get the break from the Gangsta's....see I am smiling and everything.

Please Mom take me take me, Oh Maggie quit your whining......

Gussie could care less if he got to go or not, he just wanted to stay in the yard and chew on the wheelbarrow handle. (See gussie's weird eyes, you can tell he cannot see very well by the color of them)

I reminded Mom SHE does go to CIRCLE B with Dad on numerous occasions so he can get his glass bottle of Mt. Dew.
Can you tell Maggie is starting to fill out?  She is going to start obedience classes in a few weeks, and mom wanted her to get use to riding in the car for one hour each way.  Maggie rode in the doggy car seat and Mom said she did just fine.  The only thing was she wouldn't pee outside at the other Deb's house, and she ignored the other Deb's dogs and Mom said they were really friendly.  Apparently Maggie has no social skills except with PUDDLES and MOM said that may not be a good thing. As soon as Mag's seen her yard, she peed and peed and peed. 

Anyway Mom and Maggie took off in the blue streak at 9:30 and they didn't get home until 5:30 that night.  Gus and I slept most of the day away till Dad came home from work....he let us go on a yard tour with him while he checked to see if the flower pots were dry.

This is Mom's baby butterfly stands about 8 feet tall, the old grandpa butterfly bush which is about 6 years old now only stands about 12 inches high.  We think the drought last year got him.  Mom has this butterfly bush in a bed with huge huge round rocks all around him so she won't weed eat by mistake.  She has been known to do that.

See Mean ole Cat Dietzman sneaking around the flower bed, he is hoping to get faraway from Gus!  He despises GUS!

Usually he hides under this hosta and mom has to look for him there when he doesn't come in for supper.  She worries about him cos he is getting pretty old and she notices he has lost weight this summer even tho he eats like 10 grown men!!!

Maggie shared with me later that she looked for PUDDLES under every tree and bush, in the bedroom, closet and the beer garden, although mom called it a tomato garden.... she never found her anywhere ...she did find a little doxie but his name was Charlie and he was dapple colored, he loved my MOm and even Margaret, she ignored him cos he wasn't her buddy ....Margaret is snotty like that.

  1. Yea I know what it is like to only pee, well in my case poop in only my yard. I won't do it at Bert's place. hehehhe

  2. So Maggie got to go on a cool adventure while you stayed home with Gangsta Stella Rose? Can't say we'd be too happy about that. Nice seeing photos of you all again. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Tell Maggie she needs to learn to pee other places. It is not good to not go when you need to go. She should have peed on all those places she smelt. We love your butterfly bush. Have a great day. Lee and Phod

  4. I bet you felt so special getting to go for that long ride with Mom. I haven't been anywhere since our trip to Mitten-Gan. :(

  5. HOw can mean Dietzman hate cute Gus???

    Stop on by for a visit

  6. Riding in the car sure is fun, especially if there is a chance to see the FAMOUS PUDDLES! BOL!

  7. Oh Stella Rose, Maggie sounds like a real character. Who cares she got to go right?
    Benny & Lily

  8. Glad to hear Maggie was OK riding in the car. I do much better now that I get to ride in front seat and not in a crate in the back seat. Took a while but I got my way
    HA HA.
    Greta, Bailey & Hazel too

    Pee Es
    Mom & I were at class all evening last night so no computer time but Mom has not forgot about emailing you about my CALM spray

  9. That butterfly bush is gorgeous! And it sounds like Miss Maggie needs to get out a lot more. :)

  10. Next time you should go too Stella and show Mags how to be social. The garden is so nice, hope that butterfly bush bounces back.

  11. A dawg has to be careful where he pees, you know! Pee mail is very valuable, and you can't leave it just ANYwhere.

  12. The pictures are great... it's so good to see you all... and we need to work on our social skills here, too. By the way... the garden looks beautiful!


  14. We can't believe you got left home. You should have come over here. It will be good for Margaret to learn some things then maybe you two can be better sisters!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  15. Howdy Stella Rose, jeez, totally unfair girl. Next time try and lock Maggie inside somewhere while you go jump in the car hehehe. I always try to sneak out with mum while Rory snoozes on his pillow. He's such a baby. We love your garden. Looks like a great place to play and sniff around. How come you got flowers there??? Mum is green with jelly ahahahahaha. Oooo we're bad. Take care mates. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  16. I love riding in the car and eating wheelbarrow handles..BOL Puddles is returning today, her staff are better now..whoooohoooo xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  17. Your yard looks so fun to relax in! We think it would be nice to be there rather than on a long car ride :)

    Meredith & Scarler

  18. Maggie and Gus are looking great and really growing!

    Maybe your mama will take you on the next adventure, Stella!

    Love Zoe, Peyton, Webster, Liberty & Whitney

  19. Wow, Stella! You sure are a beauty when you smile! I totally love that photo of all three of you. Maggie and Gussie are almost as grown up as you!

    Hugs from NJ! xoxo Patty
