Mom is home!!!

Mom had quite the story to tell us about her 11:20 AM flight being cancelled and having to fly in the dark instead. She spent all day yesterday at the aireport and we hear that she had a Carvel ice cream sundae for dinner! Lucky you, mom! We had ice cream too while you were gone!

Mitch and I went with dad to pick her up last night at 11PM and because of the snow and ice all over the roads, we didn't get home till this morning at 1AM so we were totally bushed when we finally made it home! Mom says no more flying to Florida in February if she can help it!

But she did bring us a nice surprise - Chocolate chip cookies! We've never had those before! Can you see that I'm soaking wet in this picture! It's raining on top of the snow here today and it's so YUCKY! We finally got decent snow and now it's all wet and slushy! DARN!

I got to taste the first cookie!!! Mitch was out in the workshop with dad and mom opened the package without him! HAHA

Check out my new collar! It's from Miss Patience and the Whippets! Isn't it just the most perfect thing you ever saw! It was totally made for ME! I've never had a martingale collar before and mom is anxious to see how it works when I go for a walkie. I'm not really the puller anymore, mom! That would be the MitchMan! Thank you so much, Miss Patience! Mom and I both LOVE the collar a LOT!

Bogie's treat package came in the mail while mom was in Florida and dad put it way up high so we couldn't reach it till mom came home to open it for us! She told dad that the camera had to be involved so not to open it early and he didn't!

It was worth the wait! OMG, these treats are to-die-for! This is Bogie's package of beef heart! Mom cut the package open with sissors and we were both up on our hind legs trying to climb inside the package! It smelled THAT good!

This is the chicken chips! Mom says this one smells a whole lot better to her and she was going to take a bite but neither me or Mitch thought it was a good idea! Hey, the package had our name on it, mom! Please hand it over!

Thank you so much, Bogie! You are one great chef! We'd visit your restaurant anytime we were ever in the neighborhood!

We also want to thank Kirby for the adorable Valentines that he sent us in the mail! What a surprise and how thoughtful you are, Kirby! Thank you so much!

And we also want to thank Asta for the super sweet and cute Valentine she sent us online! Thank you so much, Asta! We feel so special! You guys are both too kind!

We feel like the luckiest pups in the world today! Our tummies are full of the yummiest treats! I have a brand new M&M collar that I love to death and we got mail from our best buddies and our mom is home! What could possibly be better!

See you all tomorrow at Koobie's Valentines pawty! I'm picking out my special skiing outfit today, Harry! I can't wait! I feel like the luckiest girl alive to be going with you, Harry!

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

    It must be sooooo nice to all be back together again. Your Mum had a horrible journey back home by the sounds of it.

  18. Welcome home maggie and mitch.
    It is a wonderful, new collar.
    And, Valentine is warm of the mind.
    It is a baptism of the kiss.

    from loved ume tyan

  19. Happy Valentine's Day!!
    Lots of kisses for both of you.

  20. Hi Maggie & Mitch,
    Happy Valentine's Day - wow, those treats sure look good. Our "aunt and uncle" just flew in from Florida last night for a visit, so your mom and them probably passed in the air. We're sure they're missing Florida about now, as it's only 10 degrees here. Have a great Valentine's Day
    Abby & Rosie

  21. Oh, we so missed you guys! Glad your mom's home, finally! Ooo, choco ship cookies! Sounds goood to me! Oooo, I bet Bogart's home-made treats were yummy. I want one too! Happy Valentine's Day to you both!

    Love licks,

  23. Glad your mom is back home for Valentine's day. Sounds like you will have a great one with all those yummy treats and your pretty new collar.

  24. What a grand day. It is like Christmas at your house. I have to get one of those great collars.

  25. Those cookies look yummy! I'm glad your mom made it home safely. Love, Martha

  26. We have an AWARD for you on our blog!!!
    So glad the collar fits! I only had a little M & M's trim left, but you HAD to have an M & M's collar, so the only collar that would fit you would be a martingale collar. They are VERY comfy for walks, because they do pressure evenly instead of on the windpipe.

    Happy Valentines Day to you, and we have the "You're Toadally Awesome" award waiting for you at
