First sight I saw entering from the front door:
On my way to the kitchen:
The entering the laundry room to get the broom:
Something tells me while I was enjoying my breakfast at Denny's, MaggieMae had been enjoying her own smorgasbord from the garbage bag that I stupidly left partially open in the laundry room!! Ok, I learned my lesson there.
However seems the little lady has been quite bored since we haven't been walking in the cold and bitter weather! After returning from my daughter's house this evening, I found a pin cushion on the living room floor, stolen from my sewing room!! I doubt she hurt herself on it or even played with it much as it was full of needles and thread! I did only find one thread on the floor near where I found the pin cushion. I am sure she is fine tonight, which is more than I can say for her reaction after her garbage meal! She laid around most of the day and in the evening she was laying on the floor near me quietly "moaning". So I let her outside, "just in case". She promptly ran the entire length of the yard several times. So ok, was she faking it for attention? I guess she really had a belly full because she had not eaten her entire bowl of evening food, and did drink more water than usual that day. Also she wasn't playing with her toys as much. But please don't be concerned as she is back to normal again.
I have come to the conclusion we need to take an occasional walk again, whether it be short ones, and maybe not as frequent as in good weather. And maybe I need to accompany her to the back yard for some play, even if it's just getting her to elude me with a stick in her mouth and she may think I'm chasing her for it!
(Incidentally, the poor Santa on the floor among the smorgasbord mess is the newest one I got from my brother and sister-in-law for Christmas. It has not been totally destroyed, just missing some greenery which was glued to the front of it. It now sits on a higher shelf awaiting being put away till next year.)
I hope you Dogs on Thursday are being good and take MaggieMae's lesson to heart. Not worth getting sick over is it? Or is it???
