Ok, relatively cold. Dark and overcast the entire day. Mom and I had our hike in downtown Pasadena, thinking that maybe it would clear up - nope. At least it wasn't that hot... mom calculated today that the walk is just under 3 miles but it's a FUN walk - most people smile or acknowledge me so I'm a happy camper.
So we were coming home, climbing up the stairs to our place, and there was a package in front of the door. Mom looked a little puzzled - she wasn't expecting anything - and then she started to laugh. The package was addressed to MEEEEEEEE!!!!! Get this damn harness off of me mom, I've got a package to open!!!!
The package was from my great Aire friends Maggie and Mitch - gimme, gimme, gimme!!! Mom was going to help me open the package but I started it myself. It was a tough nut to crack. She opened it for me a bit (so I could still have the satisfaction of ripping it open myself) and while that was interesting and all, I like it much better when the package is already completely opened for me, gifts easily displayed (and reached).
Oh yeah the card - yada yada yada - mom appreciated that one (it has a GREAT drawing of an Airedale on it!), I tried to eat it.
Ohmygosh, these are the COOLEST presents I've gotten!!!!! A squeaky carrot (one of Maggie's faves) and a packet of two yummy treat sticks - one from Maggie and one from Mitch!!!!!
I was playing with all of my new stuff, especially a treat stick, and mom went to clean up the mess (I also found the bubble wrap scintillating). When she returned she seemed a little shocked that the entire stick had disappeared - yes, it's in my belly now!!!!! Mmm, mmm, good!
