The Second Anniversary of My Blog

Yesterday was my blog's second anniversary! I can't believe that I've been blogging for 2 years already! I have blogged 449 times and this posting makes 450 times! It honestly doesn't seem possible! Gosh, have I really had that much to say?!

Mom groomed me this morning! She says that it's getting harder to groom me the older I get because I need so many sitting breaks! She says that she can't groom my butt if I'm sitting on it and she can't groom my back legs if she can't see them! Whatever, mom! This older girl gets tired more easily, ya know!We had two Thanksgivings this year! On Thursday mom made the turkey with all the trimmings and it was just dad, mom and us for dindin. Yesterday my sissy, Missy and Jim were here and we had Thanksgiving again but this time we had pumpkin pie with whipped cream and mom was nice enough to share a smidge with Mitch and I! Look what Missy and Jim brought mom! Isn't is beautiful! Poincettia's are on the poison list for us doggies so make sure you guys don't eat any part of this plant, okay? They're very beautiful flowers but deadly!
I have a mole on the side of my right eye and it's not going away! I've seen the vet already about it and they recommended that I have it removed. It would involve anesthesia because it's so close to my eye and mom is freaking out about it! We have tried to give it time to heal on its own but because I love to rub my face on mom and dad to show them how much I love them and because I love to head butt Mitch when I play, the scab keeps getting ripped off and the mole keeps bleeding. Mom says that it's time to make that appointment and have it removed and she just doesn't want to pick up the phone and make the call!
We'll keep you updated as to when this actual surgery date will happen! We sure did try hard to avoid it but it doesn't seem like it's going to happen!
On a positive note - I hear that pizza is on the menu for dindin tonight! whooooooohooooo Mitch and I will be giving thanks for that too!

So until next time....................

Love ya lots,



  1. Happy anniversary to your blog Maggie ! It is always a pleasure to read your stories.
    I hope you will have your surgery soon and after you will be fine for Christmas.
    And miam miam pizza....bon appétit mes amis !

  3. Happy Blog Anniversary Maggie!
    I remember I was so happy when I found you, which has to be 21 months ago!

    Sorry about the mole, but better get sorted - I know you will be a very brave girl.

    Love, pats & pets

  4. Happy blogaversary! We always love reading about what you and Mitch are up to!
    We'll be sending good thoughts your way when you go in to have your mole removed. I had one removed once... but it was a furry kind that was in my mouth that was running through our yard before I POUNCED it. Ooops. Mom made me put him down. I hope your removal goes JUST as easily!
    Ammy ;)

  5. Maggie, I had to do a BIG bath and grooming session before my friend Joanne gave my leash to Sherry. Why do they make such a fuss over how we look? WE don't care!

  6. Maggie,

    Your always look lovely. Congratulations on you Blogoversary. I enjoy your posts. Enjoy the pizza.

    Your friend,

  7. happy bloggieversary. We are glad you have kept bloggin, we know it gets hard sometimes, but you always have a treat for us when we get here.

    We will cross paws for you and your mom when it comes time for the surgery. Muzzer says that much as she didn't like the headache the next day, the smoothies that lacie makes helped a lot.


  8. w00f's Maggie and Mitch, congrats on ur bloggieversary...sounds like u all had a pawssome thankksgiving, how wuz the salad u made? and as fur the mole, well u no my mama, she iz skeered of that sort of stuff...ask u mama to please do blood work on u b4 they put u under anthesthetic...yummmie, pizza..

    b safe,

  9. Congrats on your blogaversary -- that is very cool! We are trying to imagine Madison in two years ... that's a lot of blogging and a lot of adventures! That mole is scarey. Living in Florida, we all get freaked out by stuff like that. Get it OFF right away. You will feel so much better and you can back to being handsome and not have an icky scab!

  10. hi Maggie, we are proud of you for two whole years of blogging. you are a real trained professional. that's cool.

    it sounds like you had a great thanksgiving, with two meals and desert. you sure get to eat good around your house.

    now we are gonna have to worry about you having surgery to remove that mole. isn't there any other way than general anasthesia? we wonder if you could get a second opinion? Bailey's vetty told him that he has done surgery on dogs that are 12 years old, but still, we don't recommend it. we are probably worriers - we know our mom is - but it's still better to be very very safe when precious dogs are concerned.


  11. Happy Blogaversary! I'm so jealous that you had TWO thanksgivings! That means more turkey right?! I will keep my paws crossed for a quick and uneventful removal of that scary mole! Enjoy the yummy pizza!

  12. Maggie - firstly get this mole removed......

    secondly - Happy 2nd Anniversary for your blog.

    I would have had my second anniversary if my J had not deleted in August this year.

    Keep safe and remember, we are the same age, so keep well and safe.

    We loved your card btw, mine will soon be on the way to you.

    My J is making it, so it will not be posh, but made with good heart!

    and love.

    your friend, Marvin xxxxx

  13. Happy Aniversary!!! Congratulations!!! I love your blog. Thanks for your x-mas card, i love it...

    Love, Chloe

  15. Two Thanksgivings??? Wow we had Steaksgiving with all the trimmings. Pilar ate to much and barfed all was baaaaddd. No she didn't get any sweets!! I warned my pawrents but they just didn't listen!!!!

    don't worry about getting the bump removed. it will be fast and you all will be so relieved when it is done.

    emmitt had a bump removed this time last year and we are so glad we did it even though it is hard to set up the appt. we know just how you feel.

    m & e

  28. Congratulations on your perseverance at blogging, Maggie! I don't usually comment, but I do visit your blog regularly to see what you've been up to. Good luck with the surgery.

  29. Wow it's been 2 years? I'm a newbie at only 1 year, so congratulations!

    Good luck on your surgery. My old uncle Nathan had dental surgery at age 15 and he had heart problems but he sailed right through it with no worries. The vet he had was a dental specialist and he was very good. My doggie mom needs a cleaning and she's 12... Crossing my paws for you too!


  30. Hi Maggie,

    Congratulations on your second blogging anniversary. That's great! It shows that you not only have much to say, but you also have an interesting life that you like to share with us. Great job!! Keep it up.

    You look lovely after your grooming, but I agree with you about not letting your mom do your back end. I don't let my mom do my back end, or front end, or middle, or...

    That mole is a cause for concern, being so close to your eye. How did you get that? It must hurt when it bleeds. Good luck with your surgery. You, and everybody else, will be glad when that's gone, for sure.

    Love and Koobuss Kisses,

  31. Happy second blogiversary! Good luck with the surgery. That mole looks like it hurts.

  32. Woo-hoo pizza and blog Anniversary :)

    Less woos about the mole Miss Maggie, I'm sure your mama and your vet know best about that and here's hoping that all is ok soon!


  33. Happy Blogoversary to you, Maggie! Your Thanksgiving dinner sounded SOOOO yummy! Glad to hear you got to taste some of those delicious food! *grins*

    Sorry to hear about the mole...hope it heals faster before your Mom had to call for the surgery! But even if she had to, we hope the surgery will go well! Keep us updated, okay?

    Hope you have a great day!

    Congrats on your smidge of pupkin pie and the pizza...and you look VERY pretty with your new Aire-do! We will send lots of Aire-zen when you have your mole removed! Our mom freaks out, too, whenever one of us has to have anesthetic for anything. Call Lacie for some smoothies!

  44. Congratulations on your 2nd year of blogging. You have a great site and we love to read it. Maggie and Mitch would have loved where my humans went yesterday- they were at a house with an Airedale (12 yr old guy). He was cute!

  45. Happy Two'th Blogivesary! That pizza sounds really good--hope you guys don't mind if we drop by and steal a slice or two...

    Keep us updated on the blemish-removal blondes sure have to exercise a lot of care. Goes with the territory, we guess!

  46. Hi.... Yalo here! When you've had as much surgery as's not sooooo scary! My mommy treats me with every treat possible and I get spoiled rotten.... hehehe. It'll be okay.
    Congrats on your 2 years!!!!

    Yalo, the BIG Red Guy of the tribe

  47. Ouch, that mole looks sore! I hope it can be removed quickly. I guess you would be wiggling around too much, that's why they'd need to give you anesthesia. Maybe you can have your teeth cleaned at the same time to get two birds killed with one stone. (CC-man gasps!)

    T-man's mom, CC-man and T-man Angel

  48. oh my dog! pizza, you say? oh wow. oh wow. our humans pizza too many times this week but we've scrapped off the begging list because a certain "girl" was being too picky with her food. so no unnecessary snackies for the meantime.

    as for the mole, maggie we are so sorry to hear that its bleeding and stuff. i could not imagine any surgery being done on your beautiful face.

    we are a little concerned about the anesthesia though.. umm.. i think the doc knows best if you can go through it.. manang's original alpha dog was not allowed to be given anesthesia bec. oh old age.. not that im implying anything. just be careful dear girl.

    We will pray that everything will get better.

    drooly kisses,


  49. we've barked too much and we forgot one more important thing:


    drooly kisses,

  53. Hi Maggie,
    Happy 2nd Anniversary!!
    Hmmm.. I never knew that dogs have mole. I really hope it isn't anything serious, surgery of ANY kind freak me out! We all know what a loving girl you are, but how about rubbing on the left side of your face for a while and let the scab heal? ** Big hugs**

  54. Happy 2nd Blogoversary! Love coming to your blog as you always have interesting things to say and all the lovely pictures!

    Sorry about the mole, hope you'll get it done soon. Keeping paws crossed for speedy surgery and recovery!

    Thank you for the lovely christmas card! We received it last Friday.

  55. You look more beautiful than ever after your Airecut dear Maggie. I hardly dare tell you how scruffy I look at present.

    I don't like to think of you having an op, but that mole does look like it's going to keep getting knocked.
