We Won a Donut

Our friends, Emmitt and Melissa had a "Sweets in September" give-away and guess what? 
We were the winners!  whoooooohoooooooooo

Our package arrived in the mail in record time!  Our Puggie friend, Emmitt is 14 years old and for a Senior, he sure is quick!
This is Emmitt!  Isn't he a handsome boy - only he doesn't look like he likes donuts!  Go ahead and take a lick and we bet you'll smile, Emmitt!
We only get donuts once a year in April when dad has his Tour of Barns so we think this is so neat that we have our very own strawberry donut with doggie friendly chocolate frosting and sprinkles!
Emmitt's mom, Melissa made this by hand, which makes it even more special because our mom is new to the crochet world.   Heck, all she knows how to crochet so far are granny squares!

Melissa is a most talented artist!   There is nothing that she can't do! Mom says that she is by far the best Pug artist she has ever seen. 
Check out this beautiful bookmark that she sent mom.
So Mitch - do you choose the donut or the ice cream for your treat?
Good choice, Mitch! That means that I get the yummy donut!
Thank you so very much, Melissa and Emmitt!  We absolutely LOVE our donut!  Mom says it's extra special because it's the calorie-free kind!

You better not touch that if you know what's good for you, Mitch!

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

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
