More Pressies

Mom and dad were worried about me on Sunday because I was distant and I spend a lot of time upstairs by myself.  Mom didn't know if I was grieving for My Maggie or if I was hot. We did have a fire going in our fireplace all afternoon for the Superbowl.

Yesterday morning mom gave me a hAirecut!
 And after groomies, I got to go to the bank with her and the nice lady teller gave me 2 cookies so I'm feeling a lot better.

When we got home from the bank, a box was on our back porch.  It was from our friends, Aunt Lydia and her Aireboy Dave.

 Mom let me open my package all by myself because I'm not a paper eater.  My Maggie loved to eat kleenex and paper towels and she didn't care if they were clean or used, but not me.

 I have a new warthog and I think I'll name him Dave. I think that's the perfect name, don't you?
 Aunt Lydia sent me homemade duck ball treats! She makes the BEST cookies!
 They sure are yummy and BIG!  Thank you so much, Aunt Lydia!
 She also sent the most gorgeous Ann Curran card called Guardian Angels.   It's just beautiful and it made my mom cry. 
 She also sent a glass stone with My Maggie's name on it.   Mom can slip into her pocket or keep it in her purse.  The design is an open heart so the love flows both ways.  It's just beautiful and mom loves it.  She'll keep it with her always.  
 And she also sent a hand blown glass Airedale that mom immediately hung in the window over our kitchen sink.  It's just fabulous and so very special.  You are such a thoughtful and considerate friend, Aunt Lydia. Thank you so very much! 
 She also sent English pecan toffee, which mom won't share with me.  She told me that I can have the duck balls and she'll share the candy with dad. 
Thank you so very much, Aunt Lydia and Dave.   You are so kind and your thoughtfulness touches us deeply.   The two of you are such wonderful friends.

Love ya lots,


  1. How sweet of your friends to bless you with wonderful treats. I am sure that you are missing your sissie sooooo much, Mitch. We think of you each day and pray for your peace.

  6. What an awesome package for everyone! Grief is tough, isn't it? I'm sure your Maggie is ever-present, but it's not the same as having her right there with you. We're crossing paws and sending good thoughts your way.

  7. PERFECT name fur him!!!

    Oooooh all that great stuffs in ONE BOX? I can see why your mom loves the stone and I guess we all KNOW why she is keeping the Sweet stuffs to herself. at Least you got the Duck Ball Snacks!!! AND a new Furend.

    I think your furs cut looks super.

  8. It's okay to be sad, Mitch. I think my sisfur Abby especially still misses my Brudder Cap'n Ripley a lot. But it's getting better.

  15. The glass airedale is beautiful. You are blessed with wonderful people in your lives. I know you miss Maggie, sweetie. Tell mom that maybe you just wanted to be alone for awhile to "feel" Maggie with you. Mitch, you are so precious.

  16. You got some pawsome presents. I'm sure you're missing Maggie a lot. Sending you big hugs!

  17. Cool pressies and I hope they make you feel better. Dave is a perfect name, he looks like a Dave. Yummy treats too, I hope you are having a good day. I am sending a hug for you.

    What wonderful pressies you, and your mom received. We especially like the open heart and the glass Maggie!! Such thoughtful gifts to make the day a little more bearable!

    Love, Love , Love your new Airecut, you look very handsome. Mom took me to the groomers yesterday...she isn't too happy because I came home looking like a Schnauzer! Is that a bad thing?

  28. Dear Mitchy boy,
    We hope you are slowly adjusting to being the only pup in the house and not having your big sister around to play with you. She's watching over you from 'up there'.. :)

    Those are wonderful gifts from your friends... we love the crystal Airedale!! Too lovely for words.

    Love you lots, Mitch..

  30. What really great presents! Mitch, it has been my mom's experience, that we doggies grieve for about 3 months. Sometimes it's off and on, but we seem to act strangely for just about 3 months!


  31. A couple of tears escaped my eyes too when I clicked on the picture of the Guardian Angels to make it bigger.

    Just beautiful.

  32. Wonderful pressies, Mitch- I hope they have helped to cheer you up. You look really smart. Hugs to your Mum and Dad- hope they are doing ok x

  38. hi Mitch. I just came back over from Violet's blog to check up on you again and to see how you were doing. Looks like you're getting lots of love and attention. Im glad. When we lost our Abby airedale my Shug put her tags on his key ring. (I might have already told you that) Just seemed to help the hurt, kinda felt a little closer to her that way.
