A Very Exciting Wednesday

Dad came home from the Transplant games on Wednesday! Mom picked him up at the aireport right before lunch. We had asked her if we could please go too and she told us that it was very hot outside and that we'd be much more comfortable at home in the house and that she'd be home in 2 hours with dad and she was!

Look what dad brought home for us! They're John Deere M&M's! I have dibs on all the yellow ones and Mitch wants all the green ones! Mom says, not on your life, guys! At least he thought of us! It's the thought that counts, right?!When mom and dad drove in there were 2 packages on our back porch and they had BOTH of our names on them! Mom and dad had lunch and then dad and Mitch went out to the workshop briefly! Mom and I took this opportunity to open the box from Kirby! It's so nice to have peace and quiet once in awhile! Bless you, dad, for getting rid of the little monster!

We discovered that there were 2 bags inside the box - one was for me and the other one was for Mitch! Mine was obviously the pink one! What a cute pillow! I've already slept with it and I love it, Kirby!And I got a birdie! Mom says that you play badminton with it! Okay, mom you bat it to us and we'll catch it! But for now, I look pretty stoopid with it on my head, don't ya think?!I love my card, Kirby and I can't wait to try the salmon treats! They smell delicious right through the bag! Thank you so very, very much!

Mitch walked though the door as if he knew it was his turn! OMG! A rope toy! How did you know these were one of my most favorite toys in the whole wide world! I'm psyched! Thanks so much, Kirby!

An Orbee football!!!! Dad and I are going to have a blast playing hup hup with this! I can't wait! And thank you so much for the blueberry treats! Mom says these actually sound good enough for her to try!

What awesome gifts, Kirby! Thank you so very much! That was very generous of you to send gifts for me too! I really appreciate it!
We also got a goody birthday bag from Scruffy, Lacie, Baby Stan and Gilbert! Check out the dead rat card! Isn't this just the perfect card choice from them?! hehehehe
They sent me a cookbook called "For the Love of Scruffy"! I had no idea you were a master chef, Scruffy!

There are lots of cookie recipes in here for doggies and even an oonie recipe and meatloaf too! There are also recipes for birds, that's you, CC-Man, cats, ferrets, Hammies (OMG, Girl girl too!) Also, horses, kittens and puppies! What an awesome gift! Thank you so much! I can see that mom and I are going to be very busy in the kitchen when the weather cools down!
And check out the fur samples! All three Terriers donated to the cause! OMG, it smells so Heavenly! Mom had to hide the bag so we'd lose interest in it! Look how possessed Mitch is!I love my green tuggie toy, guys! I can't wait to whip Maggie in the butt and irritate her enough so that she'll play with me! Hey, if it doesn't work, I know mom will tug with me! Our favorite tug time is when she's trying to get dindin on the table! I love slapping her on the leg to get her attention! Gilbert also sent Autumn a pretty gardening bandana but Autumn says that she wants to wait and model it on Wheelie Wednesday! Gilbert also confided in Autumn that he'd asked Myrna to marry him and she said yes! We were all whoopin' and hollerin' to hear the good news! We can't wait to go to another wedding!

Thank you Kirby and Scruffy and Lacie and Stan and Gilbert so very much for all the totally awesome gifts! You guys rock!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

    we think that cookbook looks pawsome - that's a good gift cuz you are such good kitchen helpers.


  17. hmm maybe I could come over and find those m&ms for you guys

  18. Hi M&M,

    I'm so happy you like your gifts. Mom and I did some hard core shopping for both of you (and we shopped for Lenny at the same time too). The blueberry treats are good enough for a human to eat. The lady at the dog store said she ate a whole bag since they are so yummy. Plus, I sent Lenny the pumpkin ones and his Dad ate some and thought they were delish. So, let you Mom eat away!

    Those John Deere M&Ms look yummers. I wish you could eat them, that would be soooo great! Enjoy all of the wonderful things you got!

    That pic of Mitch with our "furbag" with the scary eyes could win a scary eye contest! He must have been lookin' at the "rare Lakie fur" does have that effect on Dales for some reason!

    Those John Deere M&M's look delish...Mumsie sez we're allowed to have some...please share...

    (Mumsie: Lacie...that is an outright fib; those are chocolate and NOT FOR DOGS!)

    Can't wait to see you both at Butch and Snickie's this weekend...

    Lots of love and happiest barkday wishies!

    Lacie et al
