MaggieMoose: Bullet Train Choo Choo

Maggie’s pawsability thought for the day:

“I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.”

  Maggie and I were watching the first night of the Westminister Kennel Club dog show on television. We were really into it. The Toy breeds were on. Although Maggie’s a Sporting dog, we have fond memories of our beloved 3 lb. Annie (Yorkshire Terrier) and our Scotty (Maltese). Our attention was glued to the tube. We got a text from Maggie’s human sib Julie stating that she was on the bullet train. Great, no wait at the train station, a quick in and out. We should’ve known when we got the next text “one stop away” that it was too good to be true. We were at the train station in a bullet minute. The bullet train’s minutes seemed like hours as we waited. Maggie kept looking out our Subbie car window. Patiently she waited as she scanned every human that walked by. Where was her human? After all, she had a Twitter pawty chat (#WKCdogs) going on back at home. And Maggie wanted to see JULIE!

Wouldn’t cha know, the bullet was late for the train station! Me thinks bullet train means fast, minimal stops…. It looked like once again the old train pick up meant we needed to bring a Kindle to read the night away while we hurried and waited. Instead we broke out in song “She’ll Be Coming Around The Mountain When She Comes…. Choo Choo!” Singing entertained us for awhile. Finally the 2nd trained stopped in front of us. We were hopeful. The train left again. Oh no, false alarm… then SURPRISE-there’s JULIE! WOOF WOOF! Our life of what seemed like imposed servitude melted into joy. A very good feeling indeed seeing Julie’s smile while Maggie wiggled her bum back and forth. All worth it! CHOO CHOO
