Maggie, and the Deputy Mayor

Posted by laurie on April 25, 2012

There was one beagle missing in the photos that Courtneay posted – Maggie! Apparently she was a little camera-shy. But not here, in these pics from yesterday – Maggie’s 8th birthday. Happy birthday, Maggie! Courtneay said, “These are some shots of her waiting patiently to gobble up some shredded wheat (see foreground). In the second shot, she continues to wait patiently, but the chop-licking and uncontrollable drooling has commenced!” I think that Nabisco could use these in their advertising.

The Township Council meets twice a month and they broadcast it on the local cable access channel. The Mayor couldn’t attend last night so the Deputy Mayor ran the meeting.

I’m going to ask for his autograph!

    Happy birthday, Maggie!

  2. Happy Belated Birthday Maggie ! My birthday is today, and I wish I was 8 years old again. I can’t believe how patient she is. What a well trained dog. And so beautiful too. I love the coloring / ticking on her legs.

    Happy Birthday Maggie! Our Blizzard’s birthday was yesterday too! She’s our 13 year old deaf kitty. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy Birthday Maggie, you sweet old girl! I’m going to get HER autograph along with Phillip’s!

    Happy Birthday, Maggie! I can’t imagine either of my beagles waiting for the “okay” to go ahead and eat something in front of them. And to the deputy mayor, when’s the autograph session, and how far in advance will we have to line up for it? :->

    Happy Birthday to Maggie! Yesterday was Gizmo’s Gotcha Day, hard to believe it’s been 7 years since a 3 month old Beagle puppy invaded our hearts & hearth! I want an autograph too!

    Happy Birthday, Maggie. I know I’d buy a box of shredded wheat if Maggie was their spokes—beagle. I have a beagle that could make us rich if Kraft would take her on as their Macaroni and Cheese “covergirl”. Somehow, I don’t think that’s going to happen.

    Phillip looks pretty impressive seating in the hotseat.

    Off on a total tangent here — At work, we have to take refresher training every year for compliance, and today’s topic was antitrust. Did you know that two of the Federal anti-trust laws are named after Kramer beagles? There’s the Sherman Act, and the Clayton Act. (The others don’t have such interesting names).

    Hot damn! That’s major cool. I sure wish I could say my city were governed by a beagle guy.

    And Happy Birthday to Miss Maggie. The Adventure Beagles would love to share your birthday treats with you!

    What a well trained girl! I am impressed. Mine are not at all patient. Happy Birthday pretty girl, and many more. Arrrooooooo’s from Barney & Jodi too!

    Happy Birthday Maggie!

    Hey does anyone remember Deputy Dawg cartons from the 60s? he sort of looked like a beagle. Although Phillip is much handsomer. Autograph please

    • Susan in DE said

      Certainly do! He’s kind of hefty, looks more like a beagle/bulldog cross (He’s not just a fat beagle). Now Huckleberry Hound is definitely a beagle.

  13. Carol, Eddy's mom said

    Happy Birthday Maggie. I hope you didn’t have to wait for your cake ๐Ÿ™‚ Congrats Phillip,thanks for sharing so many facets of your life with us. For Maggie’s birthday, Phillip should have let her sit in the seat next to him. She has great concentration skills and she is very cute.

  14. Baci's mom said

    Laurie, do you realize we all know how to reach Phillip by phone now?

    • laurie said

      I’ve been waiting for Phillip to email and tell me to smudge out the phone. It goes directly to a machine, though.

      • Susan in DE said

        Obviously if it’s out there on TV, it’s meant to be publicized so his constituents can reach him. Figured it wasn’t his personal number. :->

    Maggie thanks you all for the birthday wishes! She was very spoiled on her birthday (even more so than she is most other days!)…a full can of wet food for birthday breakfast and birthday dinner, double birthday treats all day long, and a birthday walk with extra sniffing!

  16. Harper said

    Happy Birthday Maggie!!!! Sorry I’m so late !!!
    Phillip, you look very good in your leadership duties!

  17. ChristyACB said

    Happy Birthday to Beautiful Maggie! She sure does look like my part-Bassett-but-supposedly Beagle named Charlie! They could be twins!

    And look at that Deputy Mayor go!
