Another Special Birthday Pressie

I got yet another birthday pressie in the mail today! This time it was from Sunshade and Jaffa and their mom, Miss Elaine! Sunshade is a very special Airedale friend and if it wasn't for her, mom and I would never be blogging! It was our good fortune the day we discovered her blog. I didn't have a blog back then. Mom found Sunshade's blog through our Yahoo Airedale group and started to read it and fell in love with it! She would comment on the postings until one day Sunshade's mom asked my mom why she didn't start one for me. Mom gave her the "well, I don't know" answer - thought about it for a couple of days and the rest is history! Mom is a scardy cat when it comes to anything new that involves the computer. She hates to be frustrated!
I'm so glad everything worked out because we now know all of you and life couldn't possibly be any better! We love each and every one of our blogging buddies!

So back to my birthday pressie!
You have to see my new collar! OMG are the diamonds blinding you or what?! I've never had anything this fancy before! Mom says that I have to be very careful to always keep it nice and pretty and new! That means you'd better not even THINK about putting your teeth on it Mitch! Mom says all I need now is a diamond tiara and I'll be ready to meet the Queen at Buckingham Palace!
Sunshade and Jaffa also sent fancy silver photo tags to go on our collars. The photos are of us! They are SO COOL!!!

Can you see my face? On the flip side it says "Happy Birthday Maggie - Love, Sunshade" I love it and I already have it on my collar! I feel so special Sunshade! Thank you ever so much!

Boy did I ever score on the collars this year for my birthday! I love collars! Mom changes them all the time!

Jaffa sent Mitch a tag too - gosh, it's not even his birthday yet! Mitch's tag says "To My Buddy Mitch - Love Jaffa" and on the other side is Mitch's picture! Mitch has his tag on too and it looks just stunning. We need to go somewhere really special to show off our new jewelry!

And we weren't the only ones who got gifts! Mom got a beautiful key chain with our pictures on it! The same pictures are on our tags. Maybe you can see them better in this picture. This is one of the cards that Sunshade and Jaffa and Miss Elaine signed wishing both me and mom happy birthday!

You're probably wondering why the package of M&M's is there, right? On the back of the key chain is says, "Who doesn't love a couple of M&M's??" BTW, the M&M's are history at this point! Thank goodness mom already got a picture! hehehehehe And no, mom was a piggy and didn't share with us - not even one! Mean mommy!

Here's Mitchy with his tag on! Mom had a doozy of a time keeping him still for this picture!

And check out the other birthday card. This one is signed by Sunshade and Jaffa too! You can't see the picture of the Airedale because my big furry head is in the way but that's where Sunshade and Jaffa signed their names! Thank you so much Sunshade and Jaffa and Miss Elaine! Mom and I can't tell you how special your gifts are and how much they mean to us!

This has been the best birthday I've ever had in my whole life! I just can't believe yet another birthday package arrived! I'm the luckiest girl on the face of this earth! Thank you so much to all of you who sent me pressies and wished me happy birthday! I love you all! You are all just so special!

Until next time..................

  3. Wow Maggie... that collar is AWESOME! I almost was blinded by your bling, ha roooo!!! Those photo tags are just way to cool!!!

    About my new squeaky toy - Normally I squeak it to the point that it dies after 10-15 min or less. However, it is still alive as of right now. I just ran and got it, jumped on the sofa by mom and gave it a good squeeze in her ear!!!
