Life with Mazie ~ Part 5~by Joanne Jaytanie

Hello world, it’s me, Mazie.

I’m starting to wonder if there is anything beyond the giant evergreen trees at the edge of my yard.

I share all my toys with him.

I try and keep myself busy. There’s so much I have to take care of – like barking at the fireplace when it makes weird sounds.

And keeping tabs on both of my people.

Dinner time is one of my favorite times of the day.

I like lettuce, but cucumbers are the best!

It was fun to chat with you again, but I have to go. 
Mom is doing something downstairs, and I have to supervise ‘cause that’s my job.
