My in-laws are in Arizona for the week, and we're looking after their chocolate lab, Maggie. Maggie is the daughter of Katie and our departed yellow lab, Max. So, in essence, she's my granddog.

Yes, I realize I've gone off the deep end. But I love these dogs. (And people are a bit silly about their pets, aren't they?) Maggie is 6 1/2, and Kate is nearly eleven, so they're both laid back and groovy to hang out with.

....Until it's time to go for a walk. Man, there is NOTHING like being dragged through the neighborhood by a hundred and forty pounds of labrador retriever.





Here are the girls recovering from their morning exertions. Maggie appropriated her mother's dog bed, and Katie curled up on Maggie's less plush one. Is that maternal instinct, you think? Giving the kids the best and you take what's left over?

Aw. What beautiful dogs.

I have a Maggie myself, well, more or less I do. My neighbors have her now, but she's a mutt. But a beautiful mutt none the less. Her pups were HUGE, plus, she had a dozen of them. It's wasn't cool.

I think moms, no matter what species, give up stuff for their kids. Even their bed. What a cute Mother's day Story and picture these could be.

Grand dog. *snorts*

Maternal instinct, propagation of the species, love--take your pick.

Granddogs
Granddog, hm? When Suzy and I married, I could never decide whether her cat was my Cat-in-law or my Step-cat.
