Thank you Boy & Baby

You know how upset I am at the moment about Sammy & Suzy. Well, the postman rang the doorbell & when dad went to answer it the postman passed him a parcel saying "Your dog gets more post than you do!". He went on to say that he was glad mum & dad were home as he didn't know how I would get to the sorting office to pick my parcel up, or what identification I would have to show the man there. Funny postman!

My parcel is from Boy & Baby. What a lovely thought. They must have known I would need cheering up. Thank you so much!

I could smell something really good as soon as mum gave it to me, so I couldn't wait to get in there & see what the lovely aroma was coming from.

Wow, it was a lamb bone & some dried New Zealand beef. Yummy! They had read about me drooling over the Bully Sticks a lot of you guys were munching & had tried to get me one, but the store didn't have any left (us doggy bloggers must have bought them all!), so they got me these instead. These look just as tasty, if not more so.

Mum unwrapped the beef while I did my best sit & wait whilst trying not to drool.

It was delicious! I crunched it up & ate it in a few minutes flat. Next!

The lamb was just as good. I got most of the meat off it pretty quickly. Well, I do have some big old teeth. This was the first time I have smiled in a few days, so thank you Boy & Baby.

I wish I'd taken a bit more time on it, as it was gone far too quickly. My auntie from America is coming to see me in May, so I'm going to ask her if she can squeeze one of those giant bully sticks into her suitcase!!!

Mum did manage to film me eating some of my treat. Dad's little girls were here over the weekend, so that helped keep us all occupied. The youngest (Jess) is still a bit nervous of me. I am bigger than her so she worries I am going to knock her over quite a bit. That's why she is saying to mum that I didn't "get her". They have their own doggie at home, but she is 10 years old & quite sedate, so I guess compared to her I do seem a bit big & bouncy. Her big sister (Em) really likes me, so she is teaching Jess to be less worried. Jess does like tickling me when I am sitting quiet so I think as she gets bigger she will learn that I am nothing to be scared of. I think I am pretty much grown now, so I'm sure she'll soon be bigger than me!

I'll let you all know as soon as we hear any news of Sammy & Suzy.

Suki's Mom said...

Cool, I love parcels. I actually just love saying "parcels". It makes me think of boxes wrapped in brown paper tied with string or something.
Suki and I are very worried about the little lost babies. We hope they're ok :(

Where in the US is your Aunt from? I hope she can fit one of those huge bully sticks in her bag for you!
Mommy kisses xoxo
