Remember the three stooges, well that is who momma, gus and mag's reminded us of on Sunday. Mom, decided Maggie and Gussie were being way to rambunctious and they needed to get rid of some energy....so she made plans to take them out to the fairgrounds for some much needed exercise. First, tho she walked me all around the yard, so i could ran around my beloved "crab apple" tree and eat any little apple that had fallen to the ground. I LOVE CRAB APPLES. Then I ran up to the big apple tree that is so loaded this year, that the branches are laying on the ground, but mom said they are not ready yet to eat. This is the second year in all the years they have lived here that there have been apples. Then Mom decided I needed to go back into the house, cos I was getting hot but I dug my heals into the ground, locked my knees up and refused to budge. Mom had to carry me into the house..bahahhaha.....
Finally, they made it to the fairground, and after a couple of false starts they started walking down the path. First, Gussie pulled Maggie to the side, then Maggie pulled Gussie to the side, then they wrapped around Mom's feet and so forth. Mom said she kept on chanting in her head, BE CALM, BE CALM, ENJOY THIS TIME TOGETHER....and before you know it, they were walking beside each other and they all were enjoying the quiet time of the walk.
Mom realized while she was watching them, that Gussie actually is taller than Maggie, when did that happen!!?? Gussie also was never nervous and actually enjoyed every minute. Mags was a little more anxious but she still had a good time. Mom and her pugs walked about 20 minutes then because it was warm out decided she had better get them home.
Once home, they both got drinks and ran around about 5 minutes, and after that they feel asleep three whole hours, and then went straight to bed for the night! Mom plans on taking Maggie back out tonight if it is not to hot BUT Gussie will be resting up cos today he has his little boy surgery at the new vet. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers today. We will let you know later today that everything went just fine.
P.S. Gussie was pretty mortified this morning when he pranced into the vet's office wearing Mag's pink harness. His blue one Mom ordered him through Mr. Chewy hasn't been delivered yet.
