We had visitors! One furry and one not so much!

Hi everybuddy! It's me, Poppy! I know, I know...I don't get to blog much anymore since that blond dog, aka Patches moved in with us! She's always hoggin' the 'puter! Anyway, I wanted to tell you all about our visit with Sally Ann. Yes, Sally Ann of Mack and Sally Ann! Oh, yeah, and Sally Ann's mommy came too! Well, someone had to drive! I don't think Sally Ann is old enough to get a driver's license.
Sally Ann and her mommy came to our house and gave us these really yummy dog cookies called Toggens! Oh my doG! They are soooooo yummy! They also brought each of us a toy and believe it or not, they have not yet been destroyed! We can't show you pictures of the toys, because, well...because Mom can't find any of them right now. Oh, they're still here, but they are probably under a bed or behind chairs or something. Anyway, they also brought our dad some really cool peppermint foot soak and our mom got a really cool Airedale pillow! Boy, that Sally Ann sure knows how to shop! Thank you soooooo much for all our great presents!
We sure wish they could have stayed longer, but our dad started having some problems so they had to leave. We wanted to go outside and play with Sally Ann in the back yard, but it was soooo cold, that day, and our wimpy mom didn't want to go out. Also, our mom was worried that we might think Sally Ann was some kind of prey. Well, we WERE bred to chase small furry critters! Patches and Penny were very nice to Sally Ann, but I, being the Alpha around here, kind of worried the peeps so Sally Ann stayed safely in her mommy's lap. I told them that I would be nice to her, but Mom wasn't so sure she could trust me! We sure hope they come back again someday when it's warmer!
Poppy (and Penny and Patches too)

My oh My...we think Sally Ann might have made your guys rething the prey thing...she seems full of molasses and vinegar to us. But we are glad you got to visit...she is one of our favorites, just like you guys.

(who says, if I (Teka) were Furry, me and Sally Ann could be twins.)

One of us (ahem, I think he goes by the name JH) has a thing for small furry critters too -- so I appreciate your concern!!

The pillow is adorable -- and those cookies sound yummy. Not that we ever get cookies, sigh.

We hope your dad's incident wasn't too serious.

Wirey love,

Jake of Florida (until we hit the road!)

I so glad the toys are still intact. I hope your daddy is feeling better, and I'm so glad your Mommy likes her pillow.

Dexter said...

You met Sally Ann??? Wow! She is totally a snappy dresser, right? Miss Poppy, I hope you weren't huffy because you were jealous of her outfit.

And she brought great presents too. What a fun visit for everybody. I hope your dad got to enjoy it a bit too.

We think it is pawsomely wonderful when blogging pals get to meet! It sounds like you had a good visit with Sally Ann and her moma. That's special by itself, and then you get pressies and treats as well. Perfectly picked ones, too! And, Poppy, we'd like to think that you were modeling good hostess behavior for Sally Ann. Not that she's not a good hostess. We're sure she is. But we are also confident that she respects and admires you, and was watching carefully to know what proper behavior looks like. And leads to. We're guessing there'll be a return visit someday!

Enjoy those treats, toys and memories.
Love to your family. We hope your dad is doing better by this reading.
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Hi, Poppy! You guys sound like you're having as much fun as ever--guests, gifts, wow, who could ask for more?!

Sorry we haven't been around too much, but we've been thinking of you all. We hope things are good with our Aire-girls and their humans.


Sunny,Scooter, (sometimes Jamie) said...

How cool was that!? Visiting, pressies and food! We hear ya on it has been ENTIRELY too cold in the south. BRRRRRR
Hope your Daddy is having some better days. This kind of weather can be so hard on COPD/emphysema folks. Mom helps the man next door when it's so cold because he has the same thing your Daddy does. So she gets his mail so he doesn't have to get outside in the deepfreeze!!
Hugs to all of you. Take good care of yourselves, all of you.
Sunny,Scooter,Shamus & Jamie
ps Thank you SO much for sending a card. You sure made our Christmas merry & bright!
