The Postman Cometh!

OMD!  You will NOT believe what happened yesterday!  Mom and Dad did their long run so they were just relaxing and me and Stanley were too.  Then the doorbell rang.  Me and Stanley went berserk and started barking our fool heads off thought we should go to the window to see if it was friend or foe.  So we rushed into the office to bark out the window, then ran back to the door because we saw . . . THE MAILMAN!  Yes, that is right, the mailman came to our house!  And he brought a package for me and Stanley.  Not mom and dad but me and Stanley!  And guess what, it was a big package too!

So dad brought the package in the house and mom said, "Oh, that must be the package from Mason!"  You see we won a contest on his blog and his mom said the package should arrive on Monday.  Then mom saw the condition of the package and she got scared.  She was scared because Mason's mom said it was fragile.
This was the sticker on it, proof that it was delivered in bad shape.
It looked like it had been run over then dragged behind the mail truck!
It was in very bad shape.
So mom was VERY nervous but she gave it to me and Stanley because after all, it was OUR package, not hers and she didn't want to commit a Federal offense by interfering with the delivery of mail to the proper recipients.
So we started to open it.  "Carefully!" mom warned us.
We got it open and Stanley stuck his head in to get a better look.  "What's in it brother?"
"OMD!" Stanley barked, "there's cool pressies in here!!
 So we started taking out all the pressies, one by one, and checking them out.
We got a Cycle Dog Flat Tire Flyer . . .
We also got Himalayan Dog Chew Treats
And we got 2 Smart Tags in case we ever get lost (and we hope we never do).
And a ball that floats.  Perfect since we love the water and I love balls!!
We also got Howloween rawhide chewies (regular and granulated - once I saw the granulated one, the biggest one, I was in love!) and some Sam's Yams
With everything we pulled out of the box our paws were shaking because we knew there was a fragile item in the box somewhere and by the way the box looked we were just scared!  Then we pulled the last thing out, the custom made, fragile item Mason's mom had made special just for us.  We were so afraid that it might be broken.  With that messed up box it was practically guaranteed!  We only hoped we could glue whatever might be damaged cuz we knew Mason's mom was worried about it and would feel bad.  So very carefully . . . we pulled it out . . . unwrapped it . . .
It survived!!!
Mason and his mom got us ceramic wall hangies with our names on them!!  They are so cool!
 We got so many nice pressies, and a nice card, but to be honest, I was sort of distracted . . . 
I gobbled down this big ol' Howloween granulated chew.  Yup, the whole thing!
I let Stanley have the smaller one.
And of course mom is deciding where to hang up our ceramic name hangies.  She has it narrowed down to 3 places.

Thank you so much Mason and Mason's mom Tiffany from the Big Stinky Dog Blog!  We love our pressies!!

Murphy & Stanley

My mommy has a confession...she MADE them signs all by herself! She is just APPALLED at the shape of the box. It even had FRAGILE STAMPED ON 4 TIMES!! She read dis and sayz "Oh geeze lets just stamp 4 fragile stamps on it and throw it around, must not be breakable items inside!!"

Mommy says when the chews get to small you nook dem in the micro machine for 37-40 seconds, let cool and then TAHDah!! you have a puffy treat!!

OMD! What great pressies you got!! We love the name signs!! We are also friends with Bert and Goose so we thought we would stop by and say hello! You two are CUTE!! Looks like you have had quite a few adventures lately...it must be pretty cool to live near Bert and Goose. We have a question for you two...since you are "minis"...how big does that mean you will get to be when you are full grown? Our mama was just wondering! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

Murphy said...

At 8 months we are almost fully (physically) grown. I am just under 18 pounds and Stanley is 29. Our peeps say I probably won't hit 20 pounds and Stanley SHOULD finish around 30.
