Monday's Hope and Thanks


We received this comforting award from Dennis the Visla , the Never Give Up award for encouragement or help in getting through a rough spot. Thank you, Dennis, for thinking of us - we are doing OK, but we are still very sad. Dennis shared this award with a few other of our furiends who are having some tough times and we wish them all well.

We have fallen behind in thanking some very good furiends for some lovely gifts we have received. In the displays below of our lovely presents, we have showcased them on a beautiful gold pashmina scarf of Mom's to symbolize our hope for the safe return of Laska. The boys took turns modeling it for you.

First, we received a huge box of Happy Heart cookies from the Honorary Siberian Husky Huffle Mawson and her Mum. Look at all we got!!!

There was a big thank you cookie and three smaller ones personalized for each of us. Dakota didn't get a chance to have hers, but Mom is going to eat that one since these cookies are just so delicious. All of our treats in the box are the very yummy blueberry-banana ones.

A couple of the bags have squirrels in them. Since we don't get to see very many squirrels in our yard, we are thrilled to have a chance to sink our teeth into these.
Thunder can't take his eyes off this one.

And Phantom is checking this one out very closely, for some reason,
he doesn't think it smells like squirrel:)

Next are some treats we got from Eva and Brice for winning the contest to guess Bricey Boy's weight.

Mom has been very careful about rationing out all these tasty treats. You can bigify this photo to see them more closely. One bag is full of Plato Duck Strips and the other has Dog Nip - can you believe it? - Catch of the Day Pollock Skin Twists and Sushi with Sweet Potato - how yummy does that sound? C'mon, Mom, open the bags.

And last but not least, Ginger Jasper and his Mum sent us a package filled with wonderful things for everyone.

There was a beautiful and soft and cuddly blanket for the newest grandbaby Brady, a stuffed Husky key chainholder for Mom, and a fantabulous bag of beef jerky for us.
There were also two cards, one with a great photo of GJ himself, and another handcrafted one in celebration of the new little guy. Take a closer look below.

Such a lovely blankie.

And let us both tell you that this beef jerky is the BEST - we had never had any kind of jerky but this stuff is soooooooooooo good. We wish the bag was bottomless.

So much to be thankful for - great awards, beautiful pressies, and wonderful furiends. Once again, Mom sends thanks and hugs to ALL for your love and caring during this time. Please keep hoping for Laska to be found.

Woos, Phantom and Thunder

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Those look like yummy treats -- it seems a lot easier to eat squirrels out of a bag than to try to catch them!

Joe Stains said...

omdog guys LASKA IS HOME! We did it!! Those cookies look so good I am drooling all over the place here!

Princess Eva and Brice said...

A great selection of treats and your mom's pashmina is the perfect golden shade and looks great on the boys.

We hope the little biped is doing well.

What a grand prize of treats. Did they have to back the truck up to your house to unload it like they do when they deliver our dog food?

And great news on Laska, isn't it?

P.S. - Our hu-dad is waiting to view all of the howling videos until we get home. Something about not wanting to get us started in a campground. Why not?

Mack said...

You know... when we go to the vets, they dilate our eyes during our exams. I'm thinking if Mom just brought along some Happy Hearts Cookies, they could skip the drops. Looking at Phantom, we think you guys could try it, too! Ha woooo!

Amber-Mae said...

Hey guys! Woah, look at those cookies! I bet those squirrel cookies taste better than the REAL squirrels! The real ones taste like poopies. Right? Heehee!
