New Friend

Hi Everyone! I hope you are all doing okay. We're trying to log into out Bloglines account to check in on everybody, but it's having issues. I hope everyone near Ike is okay. Grandma tried calling her brother last night just to leave a message on his cellphone so when they finally get signal again he'll have a message and she couldn't even get it to let her connect to his voicemail so she sent a text message and all of a sudden her phone started beeping. They got the text message! We were all excited!! They live near Houston so they have no power except for a generator but they're almost out of gas. We all felt much better when Grandma got the text. We can't believe it went through. Grandma forwarded it on to her other brother and he was happy to get it, too. Grandma is becoming the texting master! Too bad they don't have texting on their cellphone plan. I think they're going to be adding it next time it comes up for renewal because Grandma is getting pretty good at it. She'll have to teach Mom some time. lol
Okay, now to tell you about my new friend. His name is Mr. Duckie (Don't worry Flash, he's not a boyfriend, just a friend that is a boy, Mom is the one that named him so it's her fault he's a boy). Grandma knows how to shop for toys for us. They're always cool and we play with them all day long. Grandma bought us a rubber duckie family. There was a Momma Duckie and 2 babies. Sasha killed one baby and the Momma vanished. We have no idea where she went. I think Sasha scared her away after destroying her other baby. So I took it on myself to take care of this little duckie. Here is a closeup of Mr. Duckie. Isn't he cute?

I was very protective of Mr. Duckie. This is me giving Mom the evil eye for not asking my permission to take a picture of Mr. Duckie.

Mr. Duckie and I played a lot of games together. Here we are doing some roaching in the living room. The living room floor is one of my most favorite things about our new house. It's so huge and there's so much space to play!

When I took naps, Mr. Duckie was in a safe place. I didn't want Sasha to get ahold of him! Here we are napping in front of the plants in front of the big picture window.

This is what Sasha thought of Mr. Duckie though (this was taken before Sasha's haircut so she's very fluffy. She spent all weekend curled up in a blanket shivering so we still don't have a after haircut picture of her).

Last week I went to get Mr. Duckie so we could play fetch with Mom and his entire left side was gone. If any of you live with a dacshund you'll know how sneaky they are and they can destroy a stuffie, rope or pretty much anything they want in about 22 seconds. I was very upset and took Mr. Duckie to Mom to see if she could fix him and she said she was sorry she couldn't. I was mad at Sasha. I wouldn't play with her or anything. When it was time to beg for food I wouldn't let her sit next to me and I'd try to steal her share. I've moved on though. I'm nice to Sasha again, but I still don't trust her.

For now on I don't let Sasha touch the toys I really like. I don't care if we're supposed to share. She killed Mr. Duckie! Grandma says she'll look for another Mr. Duckie and I won't let Sasha near him!

I'm going to go take a nap now. I heard Mom talking about cooking bacon tonight for dinner and I LOVE helping Mom cook bacon! It's a big job helping her and requires lots of energy and focus. That means a long afternoon nap is required.

Poor Mr. Duckie. Hopefully you'll get another one soon. You'll have to guard that one real well! Bacon - did you say bacon? I love bacon!

Oh Kaos... I feel so sorry for Mr Duckie. I have a Mr Froggy that seems to belong to the same range as Mr Duckie.. Maybe I can send him to you. I am sure you will take great care of him.

We have a Mr. Ducky that sits on the edge of our bathtubs and watches me and Mitch take baths! He tried to swim with me once but I didn't like his company so now he just watches!
We hope you get a taste of that delicious bacon, Kaos!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mean Sasha.

Speaking of Bacon.. how do you get your Mom to let you assist? Mum won't let me anywhere near when she is cooking bacon!!

Hey Lady K,
Sorry 'bout Mr. Duckie. May be Homer J. stopped by your house; he's a murder. We only let him bplay with the "heavy duty" babies cuz he has razor teeth and eats all the vinyl an d rubber ones. He rips the squeaky hearts out of the fleecies. Maybe Sasha has the "Homer J. killing complex." Hopefully it won't be too difficult to find a new Mr. Duckie. Good luck.

You really like that Duckie, huh? Ladies should have ducks they can call their own and don't have to share.

Oh, poor Mr. Duckie! No wonder you were mad at Sasha.

Glad your people were okay after the hurricane!
