The photographer at the Wag It! Games trials just posted the proofs!  I had to share some of Maggie & I!  Oh, how do I choose which one's I want!  I want them all! smile

 

http://www.john.....#h36df1ee6  look at her stride and mine.  These are from Shadow skills class.
 
http://www.john.....#h2b3f359c
 
http://www.john.....#h27076223 
 
http://www.john.....#h2d04377f  In Shadow Skills you work the dog on the left and the right.  This was the Sit and Switch sign.
 
http://www.john.....#h30a9839d
 
 http://www.john.....#h33e33173  these next one's are from the Independent Skills class
 
http://www.john.....#h26a93703  Handler exam sign
 
http://www.john.....#h356f8499  Turn the light on!  Took me all summer to teach this to her.(because she wanted to nose touch it vs paw target it…nose touch not hard enough to turn it on).
 
http://www.john.....#h2ddd4d5f SOOOO very happy she got to jump 8" 🙂
 
http://www.john.....#h236521a9
 
 
http://www.john.....#h2476aa08  down on the mat
 
 
http://www.john.....#h37b0701d  nice recall sit after mat
 
http://www.john.....#h3d0efbb5  and these next one's from No Need for Speed class.  I think might be Maggie's favorite class as it reminds her of agility.
 
http://www.john.....#h316fae63
 
http://www.john.....#h360bf83b  this is TOUGH for her..she has to squat alot due to her height and the small tunnel 🙁
 
http://www.john.....#h3ed2c545  too funny!  Look at her eyes!  She was headed for the Buja board!  She LOVES the buja board 😉  And she loves hoops 🙂
 
http://www.john.....2#h6585fe0  concentrate on foot placement Mags!
 
http://www.john.....#h13164841  waiting, waiting, for the judge to start counting to FIVE! 😉
 
So proud of Maggie and so happy that Wag It Games exists now!  We LOVE it!
Tracy, Maggie's Mom

Great photos Tracy. Maggie makes us all proud. My favorites are photos 41 (left foot unison), 8 (what an expression) and 25 ("the Tunnel") You two are really something. Thanks for posting smiley

Wow - Oh my dog!  I love her expression when she is looking at you.  That is amazing.  Holly sometimes looks at me like that and I eat it right up.  You and Maggie continue to inspire us in so many ways!  Thanks so much for sharing, Tracy! smiley

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hugs,

Holly, Zuzu and Susan

Holly joined the world of tripawds on 12/29/2009. She has a big little sister, Zuzu, who idolizes Holly and tries to make all of her toys into tripawds in Holly's honor. And she's enjoying life one hop at a time!

Thanks everyone!  Have I ever told you all how much I LOVE THAT DOG!  Yup, Maggie is my "heart dog" big-grin

And yes Susan, I LOVE it and eat it right up when Maggie looks at me like that! 

I haven't placed my order yet for photo's!  I'm gonna be hard pressed to keep the amount at a decent level! LOL!

What the heck Tracy, just buy them all. Keep the $$$ flowing. Just because of how special Maggie and you are, if I were the photographer I would give you all the photos you want for free.

Why are there never any pics of Maggie sleeping!!! Doesn't she ever quit?  How about a nice photo of a nap?

 

Seriously- she looks awesome as always.  Why choose just a few?  You must be broke already like all tripawd parents- just keep racking up the bills!!

"That was easy"

That is what the light switch looks like and Maggie made it look easy!  She's so pawsome, no wonder she looks great in every photo!

-Chloe's mom

Chloe became a rear amp tripawd on 7-29-10. Another tumor was removed on front leg 2-20-14. Found 3rd tumor on neck 2-2015, but she's still kicking cancer's butt at age 14. Chloe's blog

You guys crack me up!  Brett, I'll ask John if you can be his CEO cause you have a great idea of giving me all the photo's of Mags! winker

 

Karen - here's a photo of Mags snoozing with her little sister resting her head on Maggie's butt

 

See!  She does sleep...in fact, she sleeps ALOT this time of year! laughing

Chloe's Mom - the "easy button" was actually I think where my friend that designed Wag It! Games, got that idea of having the dogs turn a light on...she has a large photo of her BC turning on an "easy button" that Staples had done on her dog!

Tracy, Maggie's Mom

PS Maggie's not sleeping right now though - she's off hunting with her "Papa"!  Well, all that really means is riding around in the Jeep on the woods roads but she wanted to go this morning!  No snoozing for her!

WOW!! Maggie rocks. I'm so impressed, and also, glad to see she really does sleep.

Good luck picking out photos. I'd want them all too!!

She truly is AMAZING! A real wonder girl.

The WagIt! games for heart dogs will be a great thing for pups like ours. We can't wait till they go nationwide, I know this is gonna be HUGE. All thanks to Maggie and you!
