IT CAME IT CAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It came ! It Came!! Our International Exchange goodie bag came!! Oh the excitement!! Oh the fun!!!!! It came from our pals THE FOUR B'S!!!!!! All the way over in Washington!! On the other side!! With the other ocean and everything!! Oh my!!!!!!! So of course I had to check out the box first...........and on further investigation called in Archie to help......




We both tackled it together but alas did need a little help from PL1+2 as it was a very well packaged parcel........




OMD!! There was a WHOLE page of stuff WITH PICTURES of the 4 B's . and poems and all kinds of stuff. And they rubbed themselves all over it too....We both read it together ......and guess what????Because our barkday is coming up THEY PUT EXTRA PRESENTS IN IT!!!!!! OMD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Archie was so touched by all of this he wanted to sit and read the letter by himself....




So once it was open we poked our heads in........





Now you may notice that I am gone in this picture...In fact when you watch the video you have to look closely for me because I had already grabbed A STUFFIE AND RAN WITH IT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Listen to the squeekie in the video that's me( I learned these stealth maneuvers from my earth dog adventures......)








Is this the best!!!!! It looks like a RAT!!!!!!!!!! WHOA!!!!!!!(PL2 had to take it from us so excuse all the slobber......)


AND A SQUIRREL!!!! Archie almost had a nervous breakdown when he saw it( his enemy......)





OMD I was SOOO excited my toy still had the tag and paper on it( and notice I am on top of the bomb shelter not under,don't believe everything you read.....)





Pl2 wrestled it from me to take the paper off.....



Again don't believe everything you read....here is Archie playing WITH HIS TOY by HIMSELF....get the picture?????? ( the bizarre noise you hear in the back ground is PL2 playing with me and the rat toy. ShHe is throwing it all over the place and at the same time making that noise....She must think this is fun and I didn't have the heart to stop her...)




And then???She had THE NERVE to put the box on the kitchen table!! Is she crazy??WE WERE NOT DONE!!!!!




Can you see me trying to squeeze behind the chair to get to the box??





I even called in Archie for reinforcement....




BUT WAIT there was more!!!!
SALMON!!!Of course!!! Salmon is FABULOUS over there!!!!!


Here we are waiting for a piece....DELISH!!





AND MORE!!! Look,and notice that it is really really good for your bones and stuff!! Isn't that SOOOOO thoughtful of the 4 B'S!!!!!!!




OH man oh man oh man






Here is Archie snorkling his down.....


But WAIT!!! MORE!!!!! Check this kid out..........




WHOA!! It is a fish/cat!!!(another enemy) and next to it is a toy that Benson says will last at least a week!!!! We haven't played with these yet as PL2 is saving some of the loot.......

And look at this cool magnet!!(PL2 says that they've got this right and we should really really pay attention to it....)



You can not believe this....thess WICKED cool squeekie balls were in here too!!!!!

Well it is all too much really..........Archie here ,would you kindly notice what it is "hidden" next to her left foot??)



I also snapped this photo of her crate...look closely... and you will see not one but BOTH of those squeeky balls..she is very cheeky about it too.....not even in her bomb shelter...



And then PL2 put the box on top of the washing machine.......well as you all know this will not stop me and I will just start my jumping bean routine any minute......





Thankyou thankyou 4 B'S!! You are the best!!!!!!!!!!! WE are sooooo happy!!!!!!!

What a delight...mmmm...I could almost taste those salmon treats...now do you end up looking like the dog on the package after a few of them? They must have some really special ingredients...if u know what I mean...

Hey pals, what a pawsome shedload of goodies! Does your mum always make that funny noise when she's playing with you? It's good of you to humour her like that! Hehehe! That rat toy is funny, how long will it last for? J x

The rat looks fantastic. Don't let it fall into the bunker!

Has your PL2 gone cracker dog? What is that noise?

P.S. I am totally lovin the rain because as long as I am wet, mom can't use the evil furminator on me.

Hero said...

4xBs said...

oh we are so happy that you like all of your stuff. it was a lot of fun to shop for you kiddos. mom let us do the "one for you-one for me" method, so we got some salmon treats for us too! yummmm....

we hope that ugly rat/oppossum thing will remind Agatha of the earth dog stuff and those little fur balls are just good for chewing and squeaking, doncha think? we will be interested to know how long the yellow ring lasts. we still have ours, but then Benson has been ripping apart other toys recently.

have a lot of fun. and happy barkday to you!!!! YIPPEE!!!!! it's almost here!!!!

woofs.

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh you guys...WOOOOOOOTTTTT!!!!! Those 4 B's sent you a wicked package!!! (We're tryin' to use those Boston expressions, so you can understand us....!!!!!)

WE ARE SOOO JEALOUS.

You see...ur box that came...and WE KNOW IT'S THERE...

Well, Mumsie won't let us have it till we go to the pet store and get our stuff for the Goodie Exchange..something bout it being better to give than receive??..WHY?? WHY DO WE HAVE TO WAIT?? AND...she was on call last night...got called in twice and didn't get to bed till 6AM (and she went to work at 1:30PM...)So...you think we'll get to the pet store in the next hour...??? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Darn those appendixes anyway....

Scruffy has stopped sobbing bout the Penguins and has decided to sue the Red Wings. Um...Dee Troit was the better team...even I could see that. But, ya know Scruffy.

Oh...Aggie...Mumsie wants to know if PL2 is a closet Atlanta Braves fan with all that caterwallin' in the background of that video...she said she just need a tomahok or something. I honestly don't know what she's takin' about.

Hot Barks...it's roastin' here...

Eric said...

Wow! What a load of stuff n stuffies!! Rats, squirells, fish, salmon, duckie have you chomped 'em all yet? Loved all the photos, wasn't the goodie exchange the best? And Agath JE, the capturing and retrieval of Mr Ratty into your crate is truly worth another ribbon.

That package was out of control! You are two lucky dogs. I may have to have a martini just to cope with the idea of it.
