We Got a Package from Germany

We got a box in the mail a couple of days ago from our friend, Mischka
Mischka ordered one of the leather collars that our Amish friend, Tim makes and he and his mom are so pleased with it that they sent us a gift!  That was very sweet and most thoughtful!  Thank you!
I can smell you, Mischka!
Mitch is too busy playing with our new monkey to bother with sniffing your very creative card!
This monkey makes the coolest squeak!  I can't stop laughing!
And check out our new ball!  It's soft and squishy and 2-toned!  It's very cool!
And Mischka sent us treats!  They look like white chocolate but they have all sorts of vitamins and good stuff in them!
And check these treats out!  Mom says they are the perfect size for us.  Hurry up and open it up, mom! We want to taste them!
We are not the only ones that got treats.  Mom and dad got treats to share too!
The box reminds mom of the movie "Amadeus" and she immediately started humming music from The Magic Flute.  She remembers Stanzie in the movie popping white bonbons into her mouth and thinking that she had died and gone to Heaven. These chocolates are not white but mom says they sure are wonderfully delicious! 
And that's not all! There was also another small gift wrapped up!
It's a handmade gift from Mischka and his mom!  It's a glass ball and we're inside of it along with Mischka! 
Hey, how'd you do that?!  The ornament has the prettiest beaded strand on it. Mom says it's pretty enough to wear as a necklace!
How special this is!  We need to find a place of honor for this fabulous gift, Mischka!
Thank you so very, very much!
We absolutely LOVED our special box from you!

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

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Wow - How do I get me one of those monkeys? I think I could silence the little fella with my super chew moves pretty quick! Dylan the Dog watching on enviously from England.

We think the monkey is cute too. But muzzer. OOOHHH no. Muzzer has zooooomed in on the chocolates and is sitting here drooling!

Great photos...We love the one where Maggie is laughing.

Hi Maggie and Mitch,

Thanks for asking after me. I’m OK and didn’t feel a thing (as I live in Auckland which is approx 650 miles north of Christchurch), but my mum’s brother and his family live in Queenstown (about 300 miles south-west of Christchurch) were woken at 4.30am by the earthquake. Although two people in Christchurch were seriously injured (by a falling chimney and glass) it is so lucky that no one was killed.

Woofs,
Riley

PS It looks like you got some wonderful gifts from your friend - that glass ornament with your photos is so special.

violett said...

We are glad that the package has come. Because of Mozart balls we were not sure. The import regulations forbid it. We have declared them for the customs as dog treat.
It was to us a joy to give to You a pleasure!
Lots of love
Mischka and violett
