Thanks on Thursday

Here we are resting yesterday after our big day at the spa.  Ms. H., our groomer, said we were excellent for her and that she could have made at least four more puppies with all our fur.  We were really wishing she had sent us home with at least one.

For the third day in a row, we have hit the jackpot with boxes from  But what we are going to share with you today was THE BEST delivery ever.

Remember this guy?  Not a day goes by that we don't all think about dear Phantom.  It is still hard to believe that he has been gone for more than four months.  Well, and that kind lady Sydney added some joy to our home with the loving package they sent.

When Mom opened the box and saw this, there was another flood of tears but also lots of happy smiles.  Look at that amazing portrait of our sweet boy that their artist created for us.

Here is a closeup - the artist did a wonderful job of capturing our handsome boy, especially those mesmerizing blue eyes.

And the lovely notecard from Sydney and The Chewy Family.

But WAIT, there is more.  

Our dinosaur bones, gnawed to smithereens - now whose paw could that be?

We have both thoroughly enjoyed our dinosaur chews that we also received from a few months ago.

Ms. Sydney must have noticed how small they were getting - look what we got!

A new one!!!

Mom says we will have to take turns and share this one until she places our next order of kibble. Then she will get at least one more.  We don't mind sharing at all.  Besides there was something else in the box.

Blue Buffalo Wilderness Grain-Free Turkey Recipe Natural Crunchy Dog Biscuits.  Sydney even remembered that most of what we eat is either chicken or turkey based.   Thank you, Ms. Sydney.

Can we please have one or two of those crunchy cookies now?

We have had two very nice days here in OP, nice sunshine, temps in the low 80s, and very little humidity.  So we let Mom get a couple of shots of us outside so you could see how nice our furs look after our spa day.

We always complain about not liking B.A.T.H.S., but even we have to admit that we feel really clean and soft and free of all that dead fur.

So thanks AGAIN to and Super Sydney for being so kind and thoughtful to us.
