Mail, Tag and more
I love to get mail. Yesterday this great package came in the mail from Addie and Lucie. For their 200th post their mom decided to donate a pound food to the animal shelter for everyone who commented on their blog. I thought this was a great idea so of course we had to comment. It turned out that we got randomly picked to receive a present for commenting.
I had to stick my head all the way in the package to check it out.
Look at all the goodies in side! Candy bar stuffies, chew sticks with chicken, a squeaky tennis ball and a lovely card.
Here is the card with Addie and Lucie's paw prints.
I love the candy bar stuffies as they are just the right size to carry in my mouth and squeak.
Since the package was addressed to me, all the presents are mine. However, generous big sister that I am, I will let Ambrose play with one of the toys and maybe have a chew stick.
Thanks so much Addie, Lucie and your mom for donating to the shelter and for my neat presents.

I sent Ambrose off to Trotter's house yesterday to play with Trotter's new little sister Scout. The puppies got very silly when they played.
Ambrose's legs have gotten so long. I am afraid that he may be part giraffe.
Scout hid in the tunnel and Ambrose did play bows to coax her out.
When she got tired of their play she rested on the broad jump.
Ambrose continued to run around the yard with a chicken stuffie in his mouth.
Scout needed to cool off in the shade of the pause table.
All this playing with Scout wore Ambrose out, thank goodness, and I was able to rest last night instead of having to play endless games of tug.
