Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

  Maggie and I woke up to an email from stating that the Kindle edition of our 1st children’s book MaggieMooseTracks® MakingFriends is available on their website! OMD! (Oh My Dog in Twitter language.) We wanted to write a book (series) that children and adults can enjoy. We wanted stories that encouraged kids (or adults) to feel good about themselves no matter what they look like, how they act, or how different they feel from others. After all, living the life of a puppy with moose antlers isn’t an everyday occurrence. Our feedback so far from our free preview of Chapter 1 posted on our website tells us we are spot on. Adults and children both love our book! Big WOOF WOOF from Maggie as she wiggles her bum. 

The paperback edition will be available after the Amazon approval process which can take as little as 2-3 hours or 5-7 days from today. We’ll keep you informed. WOOF! WOOF! Maggie asks if our readers would please help us out and WRITE REVIEWS? This will help the success of the book globally. We’re also posting a free PDF version of our book on our website. MaggieMooseTracks® MakingFriends is the change we want to see in the world where every one is precious.
OMD, Maggie wants her bedtime story read now before her nap…..
ENJOY Maggie’s tails, gotta go!

MaggieMoose: I’m Somebody Loved Up

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives.”

  Maggie was listening to Dean Martin‘s song You’re Nobody Till Somebody Loves You. She decided to cozy up to her human uncle John or UJ. I could tell she was starting to melt with affection as he stroked her back over and over again. Maggie absolutely felt like somebody-somebody loved up. The seal of happiness came when she melted off into loved up land….somebody loved up!

MaggieMoose: Chocolate Moose Joy

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.”

Maggie’s rich, velvety coloring reminds me of chocolate moose. As in chocolate mousse. YUM. I’m a lucky girl to have such chocolaty love in my life. Others are lucky too, because Maggie exudes sweetness. For those out there that think she’s a marshmallow push over- beware, her bitter chocolate side that makes her so sweet will come out gnarling. Miss Maggie is very protective of her human family. The other 99.9% of the time she’s like having dessert without the calories. I recognize how good things are with Maggie’s chocolate moose joy of in my life. Have a WOOF WOOF wonderful day world!

MaggieMoose: Warm & Fuzzy Family Love

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.”

  Maggie is feeling her warm and fuzzy best. In between having love and affection from family she caught up with some Zzzs as she slept next to our family members. They huddled together while they surfed online. We have family here this week for the weekend’s upcoming college graduation event. CONGRATS Patrick on your Masters! WOOF WOOF! Maggie is over the moon with everyone here. While we celebrate this upcoming happy event we also take a moment to paws and celebrate another family member who in affectionate terms went ‘over the rainbow bridge’ this week. Aunt Donna Pat we loved and adored you. In spirit, we’ll remember your smile and sweet laugh forever….

Meanwhile, back on the couch the surf fest continued as a new passage in life was unfolding. Apartment hunting online…. Grandma, Julie and UJ (Uncle John) looked at many apartments online; carpet, no-carpet, bay window, first floor, second floor, laundry facilities, no facilities, etc. I think their apartment hunting banter put Maggie to sleep. But, I could tell she loved having their arms around her before she curled up…. 

We close our post sending our blessings to our Texas tribe. We’re with you in spirit as we remember your wife, your mother, your grandmother and so much more…loving Aunt Donna Pat we miss you. HUGS.

MaggieMoose: Sprouted Bouquet Of Little Cookies

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

 “If we plant the right seeds, tomorrow will be better. If you put out good things, then you’ll get good things back. That’s part of our responsibility as entertainers.”

  Once upon a time there was a dog named Cookie. She had a litter of 13 puppies. This dog was part of the family of English Springer Spaniels that Maggie came from. I remember telling the breeder ‘Wow, 13 puppies is a baker’s dozen. And your dog’s name is Cookie!’ Too cute. Maggie and I thought this is a great seed of an idea for our first kid’s book MaggieMooseTracks® Making Friends. The next ingredient we wanted for our first children’s book was a feel good message for all the kids and families. Maggie, being part moose really understands what it means to be different in a normal dog world. Our goal was to promote the preciousness for being different in a child’s world. Many families are different too. Maggie and I celebrate diversity in life much like a mixed bouquet of flowers. All flowers are wonderful, all are beautiful, and all are a pleasure to appreciate. After all, Maggie is not your typical dog. I ask myself how many families have dogs that bring in twigs for show & tell? And with such pride! Maggie is a diverse world unto herself, making our family different too. Her responsibility as ‘twig’ entertainer prompts Maggie to promote something of value for the wee ones through her children’s book series MaggieMooseTracks®. ALERT: For those that already read Chapter 1 online and LOVED it, there is Book 2 in the wings…

Yesterday’s twig ‘catch of the day’
Back at the ranch, Maggie and I are counting the days down (it’s down to days) until our 1st book MaggieMooseTracks® Making Friends is published on, Kindle, iBooks and PDF on our website While we impatiently wait, we wanted to share the real dog Cookie with her baker’s dozen of little Cookie puppies. Such cute little sprouts! 

Since MaggieMoose is quite the globe trotter in friendships around the world (blog read in 87+ countries), our book MaggieMooseTracks® Making Friends is currently being translated into Japanese. It will be ready for purchase right after our 1st book is out in June 2013. We have the Spanish language in the pipeline too. Living life with moose size pawsabilities around the world! WOOF WOOF

MaggieMoose: Scarlet In Gone With The Woof

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“I’ve always said to my men friends, If you really care for me, darling, you will give me territory. Give me land, give me land.”

  Last week Maggie had some shots to get at the Vet’s office to keep her current with her immunizations. Unlike a lot of pets, Maggie likes going to the Vet’s. She gets treats, loved on and meets new furry friends. Then she met Scarlet, the little French bulldog. It was like Scarlet cast in a movie called Gone With The Woof. Feisty little one!

Scarlet didn’t hold still for my camera-blurry alert
Maggie, as usual, wasn’t the most tactful when she, in her 50 lb body, lumbered over to meet little Miss Scarlet who was maybe below 10 lbs? ‘Woof Woof’ from Scarlet. Whoa! Maggie put the skids on! She backed up right into me either shocked or scared for her life. LOL

Scarlet in her fierceness (such a cutie)-blurry alert
Scarlet taught Maggie a big lesson. One must use polite manners when greeting others. Maggie encroached onto Scarlet’s territory and she wasn’t having any of that nonsense. Scarlet gave a woof about her personal space at the Vet’s office. Give me land! Give me land! No problem Scarlet, take all the space you want. Maggie will let you go first…. We love you Scarlet! You are too cute!!!

MaggieMoose: The Best In Me

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.”

Henry Ford

  Maggie was laying next to me just looking into my eyes. I looked into hers. Best friends. She’s my bestie, my gal pal, my inspiration and so much more. MaggieMoose in her subtle way has rocked my world into my own revolutionary shift. Quantum leap. The children’s book my kids were always bugging me to write (for years) was written thanks to my muse MaggieMoose. The children’s book Maggie’s breeder kept suggesting me to write was written. Life in MaggieMoose world is filled with wonder… I credit this wonder to my best friend Maggie who brings out the best in me. Secretly, she brings out the best in others too. My world before Maggie was in tones of black & white. Now it’s in full, living color. Our children’s book with Maggie’s fictionalized character will be published within the next two weeks on paperback & Kindle, iBook & PDF format free on our website. Keep checking our website because it might be out sooner…. Maggie’s CALL TO ACTION is to: Subscribe on our website for news and updates!
