One More Birthday Gift!

You're not going to believe this!

I got another birthday pressie in the mail today! whooohooooooo It's raining here and it's just soooo boring and the mailman knocked at the back door and handed mom a box from Ruby! What an awesome surprise! Thanks Ruby! You saved us from a totally BORING day! Can you see who this box is addressed to? Yup, that's right - MAGGIE!

Well, look who could hardly wait to sink his teeth into the very first thing out of the box!

Actually Ruby sent this orange ball to Mitch - so he wasn't stealing! It really was for him! Ruby wrote him a sweet note too! It says, "Dear Mitch, Hi! I know it isn't your barkday yet, but I'm so happy that we are friends and I wanted to send you something too! I hope you like it and maybe, if you're a good boy, Maggie will share some of the snackies I sent her too! Lots of loving licks......your pal Ruby!"

Snackies???? What snackies! We didn't get to those yet!

Putter gave me a pink ball for my birthday just like Mitch's orange one so now we can play together!

See that nice blue stuffy bone in Mitch's clutches? That's supposed to be one of MY birthday gifts from Ruby! hummmmmmmm

Guess who's decided that he really likes it??!!
Ruby also sent me this beautiful pink girly bandana! I've taken quite a liking to the color pink these days! Thank you so much Ruby! I love it!

She also sent a squeaky Kong ring like the one Sunshade has! This is awesome Ruby because Mitch is forever helping himself to the one mom gave me for Christmas. Now we have two of them so there will be no fighting - right Mitch!Can you see that little pain guarding my birthday stuffy bone and helping himself to my Kong ring? Does this little pest have any manners at all?!

OMG check out this bone cookie! Have you ever seen anything so big in your life?! No, you crazed dog! It's mine all mine!

And check out these blueberry bone snackies! Wow! We've never had these before! Can we open them up please mom and give them a taste? What a pretty color they are and I bet they taste even better than they look!
Ruby sent me a birthday note too! It reads, "Dear Maggie, Hi! Happy Barkday!! I'm sorry I am late sending you this package....but mom has been super busy at work! Actually, I think she's just been lazy or wanted to keep this stuff for herself! It really sounds like you had a wonderful barkday. I'm so glad..if anyone deserves lots of prezzies, it is you! You are such a good friend and always say such nice things! Lots of loving licks...Your pal, Ruby"

P(ee)S: The orange glowball......that's for Mitch. I hope it's ok that I sent him something too. I wouldn't want him to feel left out!"
You are just the bestest friend Ruby! Friends don't come any sweeter than you! Mitch and I just love everything that you sent us. You're most generous. Thank you so much and thank you for making my birthday even more special!

This morning Lorenza awarded me and Mitch the rockin dog blogger award! Thank you so much Lorenza!
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

What an awesome honor and it was so sweet of you to think of us! We need to pass it on to 5 others! We choose Faya and Putter, and we gotta do Koobuss because her mom is on a roll, and life wouldn't be fair if we didn't choose Ruby and last, but certainly not least, is my buddy Bogie!

Wear the award well! You're all such deserving doggies! Pass it on to 5 more, okay?

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

Love ya lots,



  1. Ruby sent you some lovely presents! How exciting!

    oooooh we want to know how to get the Rockin blogger image to work, we got awarded by Boo and Oscar, but it does not work on our blog when you click it!

    Usual "Jeannie fighting with technology Saga" she has tried several things but it does not work.

    She is getting the computer axe out again I am afraid! Ha ha ha! Only joking!!!!

  2. Hi Maggie,

    Happy Barkday to you and to your mom! That is so cool that you share barkdays. It's also nice that you have a brother to play with, I guess. Just so he knows who's boss. You got some great presents, too. You are a luck dog, Maggie.

    Thank You for giving me the Rocking Dog Blog award. That was very nice of you. You area great friend. My mom will work on that now and pass it on. Wish her luck!

    It is raining here, too. We got back from our walk just in time before it started to rain again. I really don't like getting wet.

    Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

  3. Wow, such nice presies! Enjoy!

    Take your time ... you both have plenty of it.
