i can swim !!!! and tagged by billy

i am 100 percently back to my normal (or not) self !!!!!
thanks for all the nice comments :) i guess i can forgive my mom for all the bad stuff she has done to me over the years sense she kinda sorta saved my life . just think about it , what if she spent , say 1 more minute drying her hair , just that one minute would determine life or death . creepy how the circle of life works . you could eat a KOOkie , go pee , or do zoomies around the whole house all in one minute . or you could droned .
so anyhoo , my mom started my swimming lessons today . she picks up(65 lb) me up and slowly walked into the pool . i start to paddle , and paddle , and scrape moms whole right side of her body and then after like 10 minutes she lets me go ..... i swim for the first time !!!!!! i also cling to the side of the pool and do the splits with my front legs for the first time . so mom went and pried me off the side of the pool and "guided" (pull) me to the stairs . i get out , and mom picks me up and the whole process happens again ...... 14 times ..... till i finally have it down to a fine art . then she throws me in , the deep end . i go under .... mom gets scared ....... she looks down in the water ...... i plop up to the surface and swim tothe stairs !!!!!!!! yeaaaaah !!! i did it !!!! i run (jump) to mom and jump (all 4 paws) on my mom !!!!! (this is true) and she is holding me and i lick her face !!!!!!! for like 10 minutes then we jump in together !!!! we both swim to the stairs !!!! now i can swim !!!!!!!!!!! mom doesn't have to worry anymore !!!
sometime this weekend we will go to petco to get a life vest for yours truly , and hopefully go to dawg beach !!!!! (note: i still don't "like" to swim , but at least i know how to get out
today i was tagged by billy !!! now i have to post 7 (or 8) things that you probably didn't know about me !!!

1) lipstick is yummy

2) i HATE raw meat

3) i love veggies

4) when i fart I FART !!!

5) i don't drool

6) i sometimes pee on my foot

7) i love ice

more things to know

8) i have 3 black spots on my tongue

9) i went through 5 families before my mom adopted me

10) i HATE the sound of running water

11) i hate when someone blows in my nose

12) i hate the word pookie

OK , so that was a little more then 7 but its not like its illegal to post more than 7 ...... soooooooooo , i choose liberty , Maggie #1 , Stanley , and boo !!!!!!!!!!!!! get working on those numbers !!!!

my blood line !!!!!!

sooo , i was thinkin i wanted to post about my family tree .... before i magically came along my mom has had 2 Airedales , and one half Airedale . when my mom was a little kid she got a half Airedale from the pound named Sammie , Sammie went everywhere with my mom ( i mean everywhere ! Disney land , the mall etc.) he died when he was 8 , and she got another Airedale when she was 16 named jack . when she was 17 she got another Airedale to keep jack company , well it wan only appropriate to name her Jill . one year later jack died from cancer . so when Jill was 7 i came along . last year in august Jill got hit by a car and died . so here i am all alone with the Airedale killer . not one Airedale has lived past 7 . i hope to be the first , which might not happen due to the "event" yesterday (MOOOM) ooh well . well i got to go now , I'm getting sleepy !

night night !!!!

Maggie, I am so gald that you have recovered. Perhaps mom should let you have more rest first before she start to let you exercise too much.

I am sure you will live beyond 7 yrs old. The key thing about living to old age is to be happy and remain happy all the time. Do Smile more.

Luv and hugz.

I hate swimming! Glad to hear you're OK, Maggie! J X

Stanley said...

Hey Maggie girl!
You are so stinkin' brave to get right back into the water (how smart of your mama to do that for you). I want to learn to swim. Maybe you can give me some pointers. All I have in my backyard is a hooman pup wading pool. (Not quite the same thing as yours).

BTW, I accept the mission you have given to me, and will post those things no one else knows about me along with the photos of me in strange places.

Your Goob,

Asta said...

Congratulation!!!!!!What a clever Mommi you have!You better not call her as airedale killer,,she'd be pwetty hurt I think, giveh how much she looves you!!!!!!
I don't even go into the kiddie pool at my run, I sometimes go and drink from it,instead of the water bowls..but I"m afraid of it I think
Stay safe!!!I'm so relived that you're OK
smoochie kisses ASTA

I'm real glad you are feeling like your old self again, Maggie. You'll be swimming like Esther WilliamsDog in no time flat. I like the water but I hate what it does to my Perfect Fur.

Gus said...

Maggie: I am glad you are feeling better, and you should give your mom lots of kissies for saving you. We would miss you. Even Boo would miss you. Have a great weekend.

Ike said...

OMG I just read your drowning post and I am so happy you are ok and that you can swim now and I hate swimming too.

General Jackson said...

Sorry to hear about your mishap. I always said that water was something to avoid!



Bogart said...

Hiya gorgeous...

I have 3 spots on my tongue too!!!!

Glad you're ok, sweet Aire-girl...


Janie said...

Wow right back on the horse so to speak. Swimming is a lot of fun but I guess you have to know how to do it first.

My Lucky lived to be 19, if she had not been murdered she may have lived longer so I don't think I have anything to worry about.

I'm happy to hear that you are learning to swim and get out of the pool Maggie! That's great news!
Tell your mum not to worry and that all of us ADTs are different! Things happen that shouldn't and all you can do it accept it!

Billy said...

I'm so glad that you are doing well dear Maggie:) What an ordeal for sure.

So you fart...well I'm glad I'm not the only one haha! I thought all dogs were supposed to like raw meat, although I've never tried it so I shouldn't say anything.

The way you are going Maggie, you'll live to the ripe old age of 20:)

BIG hugs and love from Billy Boo:)
