Another Early Birthday Gift

Mom bought me a new collar for my 10th birthday. She said that it's very special and that I would have to be patient and wait. She bought my collar from Patience and her Whippets, who we think makes the BEST collars! She has such pretty fabric choices! Mom is just in love with them all! She is forever washing my M&M collar and it still looks brand new, so they're sturdy and made to last! Sorry to sound like a commercial but we just love them!

Today the mailman delivered my birthday package from Patience.
The envelope said that I could open my package whenever I wanted to and that I didn't have to wait for my birthday! Thank you, Patience!
Now comes the part when we're blown away! Not only did Patience send mom her collar order, which got wisked away before I could even sniff it or take a peak, but she went above and beyond with more gifts for me AND Mitch AND Autumn! First you gotta see the card~

It's a bunny and she's standing at her potting bench and she's planting pansies and it's the most adorable card ever! Mom says it's cute enough to frame!
Next you just have to see what Patience and the Whippets sent Mitch! He couldn't believe his eyes! None of us could!

Does this collar look stunning on him, or what?! It has little hotdogs and hamburgers and french fries and cups of soda all over it! Mitch says that it's the Glenwood around his neck every single day! It's just awesome and it's the perfect choice and the black is just beautiful on Mitchy, Patience! Thank you so much!

And now you have to see what they sent to Autumn! It's a gardening bandana, just her size, with all kinds of gardening related things on it - clay pots and flowers and a rake and trowels and shovels and a froggie on a lily pad and bumblebees and butterflies! It's just adorable! Autumn is stylin'!

And are you ready for this?! Autumn and I match! We're twinsies! The collar Patience sent me is the very same gardening fabric in cheerful yellow! I love it!

You and your Whippets are so sweet, Patience! Thank you so very, very much for my birthday pressie! We all thank you! We are totally blown away by your generosity! We can't thank you enough! I can't wait to see what mom hid from me! I can see already that this is going to be one special birthday!

So until next time.............

Love ya lots,

Maggie, Mitch and Autumn

I'm drooling at the sight of Mitch's collar. Maggie's and Autumn's matching collar and bandanna is so cheerful. What a lovely treat!

Asta Marie said...

Wow Maggie and Mitch it looks like you two have hit the jackpot and Patience is really talented to make such lovely items...but I bet the whippets helped a little too. So you will be 10 years old... you don't look a day over 5.

Asta Marie, WFT

Faya said...

Oh Patience is a realy nice friend. Those collars are just made for you ! Maggie you are so "au top du top"!
Kisses, Faya

Niamh said...

What a fashionable pack you are!! Love the gardening collar and bandana. I bet you Airedales are great at gardening.

Your friend,

Stanley said...

Sweet Maggsie! Happy Happy almost tenth Birthday!! I'm sending you loads of birthday smooches to get things started.

Patience is so cool. Everything she sent was like you picked it out yourself, but even better, because you didn't have to. She seems to know you guys really well.

Tell Mitch he's STYLIN' for sure. Autumn is cute either way, but her bananadana is gorgeous on her. You, of course, are always bootiful! Be sure to wear your gardening bananadana whenever you go digging.

Did I see that your dad might be available for ice cream and burger runs? If so, sign us up on the waitlist for his services. We don't have a dad to do that for us, and your dad seems to LOVE going to the Glenwood.

Goober love & smooches,

Snowball said...

Wow! Those collar are so beautiful! Jie jie love the collars that Patient made but my daddy never like me to wear collar cos my tag will always knock on my din din bowl when I eat so everytime jie jie put on a collar for me, he will remove it and some got misplaced and jie jie too happy about it. hee...

I am sure you are going to have a very pawsome 10th barkday. I am sure your mummy will have something special in store for you.

happy burfday!


Patience-please said...

Happy Birthday Maggie! We just wanted to thank you three for sharing your beautiful garden with all of us! We LOVE a pretty garden, and we TRY to help our servant in her efforts. But she, truth be told, could kill a plastic plant, and the results are less than spectacular.
Sooooo, your lovely garden tours are so fun for us, and we got the servant to sew some fun gardeny stuff for you. And Mitch's junk food one was just for fun.

wags from the whippets

Toffee said...

Thanks to you all - you see I showed mom your blogpost today and she just love, love loved your new stylish collar that she is going to check out Patience's site and I KNOW she is going to buy me something special from there!...and, maybe, my *sigh* brother riley too. She only wishes that she knew about it sooner so that she could have bought our special "wedding" collars from her! Oh well.

Guess what! I saw an Airedale puppy on my walk this am!!! NO camera though, ugh!

Ferndoggle said...
