Thursday Thanks

We got MAIL!!!

Well, Ciara got mail, but there was something in there for everypup!!! Puddles is the BEST!

Here is a preliminary peek, but there is a lot of stuff in there.

Ciara is cautiously checking out her new monkey. He is quite colorful and very lonnnnnnnnnnnng.

Hey Ciara, you can have the monkey. I smell something really yummy inside here.
Puddles and her Mom sent some special foodables for Picky Boy Phantom.

First, there is this can of Merrick Harvest Moon with duck, pheasant, quail, and all sorts of good stuff.

Now doesn't that look just wonderful!!! We have a video of Phantom eating it but we will show that to you another day.

Then there is this bag of Grammy's Pot Pie with chicken and delicious veggies and fruits. You just have to mix it with water and voila! yummy chicken pot pie. Phantom hasn't had a chance to try this one yet, but TD and Ciara are hoping it happens soon so they can have some too.

AND there were some special treats from Gourmet Tails.

Here is a close-up - we thought they looked like little cupcakes.

Ciara still looking a little suspicious of this monkey who claims he loves her.

He has a special pocket for a water bottle that makes him all crunchy-sounding when he is squeezed and chewed.

Puddles, I think this was just such a special gift from you and your family.

I am getting to be best pals with Mr. Monkey.

And now for a video of us getting to finally taste those yummerlicious treats.

I won another monkey, a sock monkey, a while ago from Emmitt and his sweet Mom. This is what he looked like when he first got here.

Isn't he so cute? Or maybe we should say, wasn't he so cute?

Oops - he is now the headless and unstuffed sock monkey! But he still tastes good to me :-)

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Happy Birthday, Ciara! It's cool the way you all separate yourselves so there will be no incidents while you are enjoying your cookies.

Thunder, we sure hope your surgery went well and that you are home and being spoiled. Are you going to have to wear Phantom's Cone of Shame while your ear heals?

Phantom, we sure hope you enjoy the delicious noms sent by Puddles and that they stimulate your appetite. It can be tough to find the right taste sensations sometimes.

Those Merrick foods are pawsome. Back when K had all her GI issues, that was one of the foods that worked for her. They had so many options that we could rotate among them... The dogs think they're super!
