Yes, Little Maggie has learned all her tricks from Miss Mistaya!
And she works them very well.
Maggie knows how to work those pretty little eyes and that very expressive face of hers.
We took a drive to the ocean on Monday to hunt for shells and to let the dogs play.
It didn't take Maggie long to make us realize she wanted to be off the leash just like Mistaya was. Since we were lucky enough to be the only ones on this sun filled beach we turned her loose.
She and Mistaya raced up and down the beach, over the driftwood logs, into the waves...at least Mistaya tried to get her to follow her. But Maggie just isn't ready to face the water and waves just yet.
Occasionally, Maggie had to make a rest stop to catch her breath. Mistaya's legs are a bit longer than little Maggie's but she tries so hard to keep up.
Several times Mistaya finally realized that she had left Maggie behind and would come back to us to find her. And Maggie was wonderful about returning to us when she felt left behind.
Finally they both seemed to run out of steam and wandered back to us.
We packed up our shell treasures and headed back to the car to fresh water for the pups and a soda for us.
Little Maggie was so tired she couldn't even make it all the way into her bed before she was deep into her sleep.
And Mistaya found herself a sunny spot to make herself comfortable as we headed back home after another wonderful play day at the Sea.
We feel so fortunate to have 2 such amazing little animals live with us and bring so much happiness into our lives.
Rescued dogs are the best.
