This morning muzzer pulled my barkday pressies down from the refridgederador, and said we could open them! I picked Faya's to open firstest, because it came such a far way! Faya and her muzzer sent it all the way from Switzerland! My dad is jealous. No one sends him pressies from Switzerland! Plus, I got more cards for the Christmas celebration holiday thingy than he did. Terriers RULE! Anyway, we took my pressies into muzzer's office, because it was sunny and bright. Here I am trying to open Faya's package all by myself.
I tried and tried, but couldn't get it opened. Muzzer offered to get the scissors to help, and I said "yes, yes!" But I wouldn't move away while she was cutting. I was helping and making it all go faster. (yeah, and risking your terrier nose too, kiddo!)
So, while she worked on the edges, I chewed on a corner.
When the top popped open, this is what happened!!!
Muzzer made me back off, and she showed me all the pressies. There were two bandanananas...I wonder if I am sposed to share? Two Stuffies, one a really neat cow that you can see me eyeing right here. Two containers of "Pralines", one tripe flavored (yummy, we tried them!) and one labelled "chicken." Then there is something called "Doggy Gum." I wonder if it will blow bubbles? And there are fishy snacks and bones that look like Dingos, in 8 different laguages.
But I decided that the cow was my most favoritest, and went right back to play with him.
Here is a picture of the fishy snacks, with the loofah doggie, and the lovely card from Faya.
I played with that cow for quite some time, and I have not made it stop squeakin' yet.
But muzzer was not her usual careful self! She left the package from Asta (NY) on the trundle bed so we could open it later and she could get pictures! He He!
I opened this one myself! Thank you Asta for your exceptionally fine packaging.
Muzzer heard me rip! and grabbed the camera, but by that time I had this super Ace of Hearts stuffie out of the paper and on the couch in the TV room. I pulled out the rubber tire too, and chewed on that quickly, but decided I would concentrate on the Ace of Hearts. So muzzer went back to her office to take this picture of the cute card Asta and her Mommi made, and pick up the pieces of envelope and paper I left lying around as incriminating evidence!
And so, now I think my Barkday will last forever, almost. I still have a supply of cookies from Miss Snickers and Mr. Butchy, including the BIG BONE! And the BEEF TENDONS! And now I have international gourmet treats from Faya too. Oh, and stingy muzzer has put all the toys away except for Ms. Cow and Mr. Ace, so she will be doling those out periodically too.
Tomorrow, we are taking my new Kong Wubba from Butchy/Snickers to work to play with and muzzer is taking the camera to take pictures.
So, tomorrow we will also make some donations for Faya and Asta and Butchy Snickers, cause that is what I said I would do. Gotta see if I can find a good Airedale rescue site for Faya, locked in to the terrier thing cause they found my muzzer. hehehe...muzzer would never let me spend my pay pal funds on treats like this, but she is OK with the donations. I think I made out on this one!
