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 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.


  1. Woof! Woof! Precious Amazing Happiness Indeed!!! Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  2. Good Morning Sugar! Thank you and have a wonderful day today!
    Hugs and wags, Mistaya and Maggie

  3. awww...that last part almost made me cry! They sure are lucky animals because you can tell how much they're loved. What a great family!

  4. Amen to that! Rescues are the best dogs!!
    It looks so fun to run on the beach!! Our beach is 80 miles away!! When gas was cheaper we use to ride down to the sea at times on a week-end but now we don't drive any where we don't HAVE to!!!

  6. Hi Rae, sometimes we feel we are the ones who are so lucky ones!

  7. Hi Fern, we feel very lucky to get to live so close to the sea. It is a life long dream of mine and I have never been happier!!
    Hugs, Gail

  8. Hi REmington, me and Maggie have grown very close and enjoy each other a lot! It sure is fun to have some one to run with and likes to roll around with me and pretend we are fighting!!
    Hugs and wags, Mistaya and Maggie

  9. That looks like fun! It's good to see Maggie and Mistaya getting along and having a great time.

    The fortunate works both ways, rescues are the best and their forever families are pretty special too.

    Gail, I wanted to tell you that I love that barn photo you submitted for Joan's contest. Great shot.
