Pressies for Just Me

On Monday, two pressies came in the mail and they were addressed to Maggie and Mitch.   I don't think My Maggie would mind if I opened our pressies and enjoyed them, do you?
The first pressie was from Miss Becky Bluebonnet.
She had a contest awhile back and My Maggie and I were winners.
Becky sent our mom some allyssum flower seeds and she will plant those outside in the spring and we will think about you when they bloom, Becky.  Becky also sent the most adorable Scottie card and a Scottie key chain and a peppermint tea bag to help keep mom awake and best of all she sent a fancy lollipup!  Hey, I don't have to share!
Thank you so much, Becky!
 The second pressie was from our friend, Dilly
Dilly sent us a New Year's card and Dilly makes her own cards. Isn't it so cool!
Dilly also sent treats!  Thank you so very, very much, Dilly.  You are a very thoughtful friend.
 I guess I get to eat the whole bag all by myself, huh.   I honestly wish you were here to share them with me, Maggie.  There are more than enough treats in this package for both of us.
Mom got out the treat machine yesterday.  My Maggie knew how to work it but I was lazy and never learned how.  I always figured what for when My Maggie was kind enough to help me out and give me free treats.
What's the secret to this treat machine, Baby?  Help a hungry guy out, wouldya!
 I'm still waiting...................
Mom says we'll be working on this project every day until I learn how to treat myself!

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

Love ya lots,


  1. We have one of those machines here. Brudder Max (DaOdderWeenie) knows how to work it....butt do you think he shares with me??? Of course not!

  2. Mitch, I am sorry to hear that you lost Maggie...
    But I am relieved, you are cute as usual and enjoying your gifts and treats.

  3. Okay Mitch - time to take matters into your own can learn how to press that bone lever and get those yummy treats...we just know you can ! Hmmm Mom loves that treat machine - guess we off to search online to see if we can find one :)

  4. Pssss Mom found one...and over $10.00 less than what Amazon was selling them for....we will think of Maggie every time we use it :)

  5. oh no mitch we had no idea about maggie. We are so incredibly sorry, and our hearts just dropped. we know there are no words that can stop the pain- just know we are thinking of you- and our hearts are with you during this difficult time.

  6. I think if you get hungry enough you might figure out how to get the treats out of the machine.


  7. Focus really hard Mitch!!!

    That last picture is a hoot!!!


  8. Oh Mitch, you are just a boy and boys are usually lazier then girls!!! It takes you a little longer too!!! You'll figure it out, I have faith in you BOY!!!

  9. You can do it, Mitch!! Remember when you mastered the stairs? And other challenges? We're with you dear terrier pal!

    Wirey love,

    Jake and Just Harry

  10. Mitch, we could send Ivy up to help you with that treat machine - she'd bite it in two for you and then all of the treats would fall right out.

    Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ivy

  11. WOW those are grrrreat prize pressies and the Card is super.

    I just KNOW that you will be havin snacks FLYIN outta that super Treat Machine.. in like 87 seconds. Keep us posted on how you are doing with it.

  12. You got some great presents! I'm sure it won't be too long before you learn how to get your own treats! Practice makes perfect!!

  13. I have a secret to tell you. My mom refuses to read the post from your dad. She's afraid she'll cry a river of tears. She's crying now just reading this post and the post from Tuesday.

    We know you'll be ok but we feel so many emotions for you Mitch, mom and dad.

    We are sending you loving vibes. We hope you're receiving them loud and clear.

  14. A treat machine? Oh wow that would be the best to have around here. I think Stewie would sit on the lever and fill the bowl then gobble it up...repeat till it was empty. Tucker would drag it around, demand bark at it and then tackle it.

    I bet you will get that lever working and savor your treat!

    I'm sure Maggie would say to you "you enjoy those treats Mitch"!

  15. Hi Mitch, it's'll take some time. There will be alot of "firsts" for awhile. Like the first time you get a treat out for yourself. It'll be a little slow going at first but it'll come along.

  16. Hey Mitch,

    I hope you've managed to sort out that treat machine, have you????


  17. You Will do it Mitch !!!! Muuuuahh !

  18. WOWZERS! I want one of those fancy machines....

  19. Great presents.

    That treat near and yet so far away.

    XXXoOO Daisy, Bella &Roxy

  20. Oh Mitch you will lean that funny treat machine.
    From pain and suffering Maggie has been saved.
    Don't grieve for what had be
    Who has to decide the thing to do
    You were so close--you two--these years,
    Don't let you heart hold any tears.
    We thought of you today.
    We have not left comments much, but we have read a lot of your posts.
    Sweet William The Scot

  21. I know you must miss your Maggie so much! We are all here for you & your family.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  22. I bet you can figure out that treat machine. I hope my momma don't get any ideas about makin' me work for treats!

  23. I'll if you looked at that long enough... then gave your Mom the Sad Eyes Look... that she'd get a treat for you! Not that I'd tool my mom like that or anything. Nope. Not me.
    Ha roo roo roo!
    Play bows,

  24. What a great surprise.:) We know you all must be missing your Maggie so much. Our prayers are with you. We hope you learn how to use the treat machine quickly. It looks like a lot of fun.:)

  25. Mitch,
    Angel Maggie will be so proud of you when you learn how to use the treat machine, we have never seen one like that!

    Winston, Chloe and Cecil

  26. Okay Mitch...just grab that machine and start dragging it around until treats start to fall out!! That is what I would do!


  27. Yay no need to share ;)
    We know you miss Maggie alot, every minute. Special hugs for you Mitch.

  28. Chloe says to grab the machine and throw it up in the air and the treats will fall out! We are so sorry to hear about Maggie and hope ou are doing ok.
    xoxo LadyBug and Chloe

  29. We know you can do it, Mitch! Just practice and you will figure it out! We have faith in you!

  31. Mitch, aren't you lucky to get such nice pressies! I know you wish you could share them with your sweet Maggie, but I bet she is right next to you watching you enjoy them. I've never seen a treat machine like that. I know you will figure it out. Thinking of you Mitch and so are Sugar Plum and Meeka.

  32. OMD I would love a treat machine like that! I'm sure Maggie wouldn't mind one bit that you opened those pressies. And she will be so proud once you learn how to work that treat machine!


  33. We'd have to wait a long time in this house to work that machine...we would just try to decimate it...Scruffy would try and dig the treats out...

    Good luck with that sweet boy....

    Love ya buckets....


  34. Hi Mitch, we bet Maggie would love watching you get all the treats and having a good old laugh cause you can't work the treat machine. It was great of your friends to send you a pressie. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  35. Mitch, With the intensity that you show in that last photo, I have no doubt that you'll figure it out. Or, perhaps you could ask your wonderful humans to help you...

    I'm sure that this is a very tough time for you and your humans, and we are thinking of you.

  36. You will figure it out Mitch!
    i know it must be very strange for you to not have Maggie there to look after you and to share things with, but I know you will enjoy your presents just the same.
    ~Lickies, Ludo

  37. Hi Mitch. After some days off blogging, we just read the sad news
    about Maggie and we are heartbroken. We will miss Maggie a
    lot. Our thoughs and prayers are with all your family in this
    difficult time.
    Thor, Jack and family

  38. hi Mitch, that's so nice that you got pressies and treats, but we're sad that you can't share them with Maggie. don't worry though. Maggie has all of the treats she can eat at the bridge. it's heaven where she is and everything is good there-treats and everything. we know you miss her though. so do we.


  39. It's hard when you lose a best friend. We still keep looking for our hounds who are now with Maggie. It will be fun to learn the treat machine though. You are definitely smarter than me!

    love & wags,

  40. Mitch, keep on staring at that treat machine and maybe, just maybe, one will fall out of its own accord.

    I'm thinking of you all, every day.

  41. Oh Mitch you'll just pick it up I know. I hope you get over the loneliness real soon...

    Thinking of you, everyone at home, and angel Maggie so much.

  42. Those are very nice, thoughtful gifts. I bet you get that treat machine figured out in no time.

  43. Oh, Mitch, Maggie would not mind.
    You can safely use the great machine soon.

    Nice woooh

  44. Hi there Mitch! How ya doing? You're looking good, but we reckon it will keep your mind occupied a little to keep working on how to get those treats. We're hoping things are adjusting and you are having happy thoughts of your dear Maggie and remembering all those good times. Lots of love and licks to you all, Ros and Oscar

  45. We know what a good boy you are, Mitch, and were always willing to share your treats with your dear Maggie. We think that with a little help from Maggie Angel's spirit and with your Mom, you'll be dispensing your own treats in no-time!''

    And what nice presents you and your Mom received!

  46. OH NOOOO!
    SORRRWY, we not noe that Maggie go to bridge! Not log on for long time!
