International Package Exchange!

Hi everybody! It's me, Poppy! I am really excited today because Mr. T-Bone Beasley and Chef have come up with a great idea. It's an International Package Exchange for all of us DWBers that want to participate. You can get all the details at either of their bloggies! I am hoping to get a new stuffy and Penny is trolling for eatables. (Like either of us NEEDS that stuff)! It's going to be so much fun trading packages with our pals! So head on over to T-Bone's or Chef's blog and get signed up to participate.

We are really sad that we missed our play date with Ezzy Rider on Saturday. His mom was feeling kind of "under the weather", so we are going to reschedule for some other Saturday. If we wait long enough, maybe Jagger can come too!

Mom and Dad went to PetCo, yesterday, to get meal wormies for the Bluebirds. Those bird puppies sure are hungry...they are eating 1,000 meal wormies in about a week. Dad figures that the babies should fly around May 27th. We haven't seen them yet, but the mommy and daddy are hanging around the house almost all the time and they are feeding them so much that we are afraid the babies will be too fat to leave the nest. Oh, yeah...all they got US was some doggie toothpaste. It tastes good, but we would rather have treats or stuffies!

This last picture is Queen Pockets. She was our mom and dad's very first Airedale and she went to the bridge 6 years ago on May 8. Tomorrow would have been her 11th barkday. Every year, on her barkday, Mom used to take her to the pet store and let her pick out her own present. Mom says she had her lips on every toy in the place! I never got to meet her, but Penny got to spend almost two years with her and she learned all of Pockie's Aire-head tricks. She still uses a lot of them on ME!
By the way, our mom's finger is almost all better, except she still can't bend it all the way. Our dad's spinal cord stimulator was unsuccessful. After 8 days, he had it removed. He said the pain wasn't worth the tiny little bit of pain relief he got from it. We don't know what they will try next, but he's going to go see an orthopaedic doctor as soon as he gets over the pain from the spinal cord stimulator. We sure hope the new doctor has some tricks up his sleeve! We want our dad to be pain free!
That's all, for today, so head on over to see Chef or Mr. T -Bone if you want to sign up for the International Package Exchange!
Poppy & Penny

Hi Guys...Sorry to hear that your Dad is having pain problems but glad yer Mom's finger is getting better. Just wanted ta let ya know the little cow huts are ony for the babies when they are little...on the dairy farm they don't keep any males...they sell 'em all when they are a little bigger and then the little cow girls go into a special barn until they are able to be bred and produce milk. None of the cows there are butchered for meat at all...Uncle Shawn bought one of the boy cows ta raise himself or he woulda been sold long before now. We have to read more about the International Package Exchange...guess we should visit around some more....

You guys sure have interesting lives. I'd like to hear more about your toothbrushes. Do you get to go to the pet store on your birthdays too? I always took Cooper, and now Levi, to the pet store after every vet appointment.

Hi Penny and Poppy...It is always sad on the anniversary of a friends passing. My mum says she has felt that pain so many times but she also is happy in her heart that she was able to be a part of their lives. I have not had to deal with that yet so I don't know how it feels...I sure hope those birds don't get so fat they weeble wobble out of the nest and take a nose dive...maybe you should put some pillows under the nest for cushion... I am glad your mummy's finger is better, you never know when she will need it...and I sure hope your dad gets pain free really soon..I bet he is miserable.
