When I got up this morning there was a HUGE pile of packages and parcels on the table and mum and dad said they were all for me!!! I am such a lucky boy!
Lots of parcel ripping action quickly ensured!
Anyhow, I have lots of thanks to do, so I better get on with it. The first parcel I opened was from my Faya! Well...I tried and tried to open it but it was really tricky...
It smelt so good and I wanted to get the box open. Mum eventually helped me and look what was inside! A seriously HUGE cuddly bird, some tripe treats, some cheesy treats and a beautiful photo of Faya with lots of kisses on it!
I had a good chew on the birdy. The white fluffy hair on his head was particularly attractive, even more so than the eye balls which as you know are normally my first target!
Ah little birdy, I hope I can look after you as well as Faya looks after M le cochon (Mr Pig) that I sent her for her barkday.
Merci Faya pour mes cadeaux fantastiques! Je t'adore ma belle!I also had a package from Boo all the way from Malaysia! He had made me a cool card with a picture of me in my Doggles on the front. There were 2 different packets of yummy treats and a cute bookmark for mum. Thank you soooo much Boo, what lovely gifts!
I also got a package from Girl Girl in Singapore. Look, I got a very cool bandanna and a Garfield card! Mum really likes Garfield so she was impressed with that. You can see me wearing my bandanna is some videos further down. Thank you Girl Girl, and I'm glad you liked your pizza and sign too!
And here's yet another parcel from Singapore! This one arrived a few weeks ago so I have been very patiently waiting to open it. It's from Boy and Baby! It's a Petstages chew/tuggy toy and I really love it!
All the different textures feel nice on my teeth to chew on. I seem to be going through another phase of needing to chew at the moment, so this will be very handy. Mum says my adult teeth are settling into place. This toy is also really strong, so great for playing tuggeeeeeeee!
Look at my teethies! You should see how HUGE the back ones are! I hope they stay nice and white.
Next up I opened the parcel from Simba! I wasn't tiring of opening stuff at all and was zooming all over the house like a crazy as I was so excited about all my new toys and treats! Mmmm, Simba, you may notice that the original blue ball isn't on the rope any more. Well I played and played with this toy yesterday and the tennis ball came apart at the seams. I was really sad as I was having so much fun with this toy, so clever dad put one of my rubbery balls on the rope instead, cool! Thank you for my pressies Simba!
Here I am opening Simba present. You can see that although I love my Kong squeaky ring and REALLY love the ball on a rope, I knew there were treats further in the envelope and was on a mission to get to them!
And here I am playing with the original ball on a rope before my big old jaw wore it out. We have a pink toy the same as this at obedience class and I always choose it for retrieve. Now I have a macho blue one all of my own!
Can you believe there are still more presents! Next was a parcel from Putter! Look at the cool card. I am trying to learn to balance a treat on my nose then toss it into my mouth like this doggy. I got a HUGE Kong squeaky ring. Cool! This will be great to take to the lake when I go swimming. There were also 2 very fancy bandannas! You all know how I love my neckerchiefs so I was very impressed! Thank you Putter!
Here I am opening Putter's parcel. I am sorry if I kind of tossed the presents out there Putter, but your padded envelope was great fun to tear up, hehehe!
Here I am modelling one of the bandannas. What do you think? I think it goes great with my black and tan! You may also spot that I am wearing a new tag. I'll tell you about that in a minute!
Nearly there! Next was a parcel from Sunshade and Jaffa! There was a pretty pop up card, a rope toy in the shape of a doggie, some truly yummy peanut butter and kelp treats and a tag.
Mum found it hard to take a photo of the tag which did it justice as it's really beautiful. On one side is a etched photo of yours truly.
I also got a very funny card from Billy Boo! The punchline on the inside is "But it turns out, they're not very good at knitting!" Thanks for giving us a good chuckle Billy!
When I checked my pee mail yesterday I had this really pretty e-card from Ruby Bleu. She even manages to look good with a silly party hat on and a whistle thingy in her mouth! Thank you Ruby!
Here are all my cards! I was very good and none of them have any teethie marks in them!
Last but not least, here are my presents from mum and dad. Mum thought there were cool as the all had a cowboy/sheriff there, and I am called "Sherifs Sundance Kid", cool hey?
I like the cowboy horsie best. He still has his eyes, amazingly. I think I got so many toys yesterday that I was too busy playing with lots of different things to give him my full attention, lucky for him.
I'll report in a few days to let you know whether he needs a guide dog!
Once I had opened all my presents, played with the toys, sampled the treats and remembered to have some food, dad put me in my car harness and we set of in the car. I soon realised we were going to my favourite walkie spot, Nightingale Wood! As soon as we turned up the road that leads to the woods I started making my silly squeaky noises and peering out of the car windows!
As it had been raining on and off all day I think a lot of people had stayed home, so we had the woods pretty much to ourselves. I did meet a couple of dogs, but no-one who was really fun to play with. Ah well, I still had fun!
There were lots of good smells but I didn't spot anything exciting to chase. It was fun running through the long grass feeling it tickling my tummy!
We have not been here for a couple of months and it looked so different now all the grass, shrubs and undergrowth have grown over the Spring. It made it more exciting to run around now the woods are more dense.Once we got home and I'd had my dinner, a birthday phone call from my brother Fergus and a bit more of a play with my toys, I flopped on the sofa for the rest of the evening as I was completely exhausted!
