Someone kidnapped my Mom!!!!
Apparently THIS is the guilty party. Her name is Magnolia Marie - known as "Maggie". Here's what happened...
Just a few days before Christmas...Mom disappeared.
I knew she wouldn't leave me on her own accord - so the only thing I could think of was she must have been kidnapped. She was finally returned (unharmed - and maybe a few pounds heavier...) in the early morning hours of December 27th. I grabbed her camera and look what I found. Every picture is of this OTHER DOG.
After some investigating on my part - Mom fessed up that she went to see HER parents (Tutu & Huni) for Christmas - in southern Utah - which is why I was left behind. You must take a plane to get there - and until Mom gets me my own private jet so I can travel in the main cabin - I only travel by car! (I think the private plane in on the same fantasy wish list as that townhouse off Central Park and George Clooney)
One has to ask WHY would anyone in their right mind leave NEW YORK CITY for Christmas,
then I found this picture of the view from Tutu & Huni's living room.
I guess it's nice if you like that "nature" sort of thing - but where are all the big buildings? All that light must be blinding. I understand Mom had trouble sleeping her first night there - it was too quiet and she missed her lullaby of screeching tires, honking horns and the occasional siren! - Ah....New York.
So back to the Momnapper - MAGGIE. Seems she even has a job! Every Wednesday she goes with Tutu for a Pet Therapy session at the local assisted living facility, Ridgeview Gardens in St. George.
She loves to snuggle with the residents.
And they snuggle right back.
She gets belly rubs...
And even tried to go for a ride!
Back at Tutu & Huni's she supervised the preparation of Christmas dinner. Now I don't know what fennel is - but apparently it was "fabulous" in the sausage/fennel stuffing that was part of the big meal!
This MAGGIE dog was everywhere - in every picture. I hear she even SLEPT with Mom. That is just unacceptable.
Sounds like Mom had a lot of fun visiting - but I'm not happy about this OTHER dog!
Now just because Mom left the big city for the holiday - doesn't mean I had to suffer. In fact I got to stay at Due's! We got to go on long walks, and take even longer naps. We even got to check out the snow in Central Park on Christmas morning.
What's better than a snowman? A snowman with his DOG!
There was still lots of snow to play in!
And we stopped to check out the windows at Ralph Lauren (Madison Avenue) on the way home!
Thanks to Due (and Tom & Deborah) for taking great care of me while Mom was gone. And Maggie - I guess I should thank you for taking care of my mom - just remember - she's MINE!
I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday and your travels were safe.
Until our next adventure....
