Our Journey...

Think we forgot to tell you a lil bit about what sort of vacay we're on! Last September of 2011, Dad retired. He and momzers got an RV and decided to plan a trip across the country, visiting national parks on the way to Maine (where's that?) for a family reunion. That's a long trip from northern California! Anyway, this blog is now a record of our travels across the good ole U.S. of A. and even Canada - plus all the things we get to do and see! We started our journey mid-March and hope to be back in NoCal by mid-October - yeah!

Dogness! Pressies from Mason Dixie!

You can't imagine my surprise and major tail wagging joy when I got this amazing box from Mason Dixie yesterday. It smelled soooooo yummy. Mom and her grandpeep brought it outside, where I investigated the box and then got some help opening it up. What DELICIOUS SMELLS snaked out to my nose - much better than G-L-O-V-E, that's for sure!

Here I am investigating what the contents could possibly be!

Urging little grandpeep to "GET IT OPEN!!!"

OHHHH! Sniffs - Mmmmmm - smells sooooo yummers!


And look at THESE! Made with WILD salmon - can you imagine? And there's glitter all over the package, like shiny fish!

And here are some MUDDY MUTTS - Peanut 'n Carob cookies that have little balls and bones with a ribbon on the tag - these are soooooooooo cute and never mind that... smell DELICIOUS!

Here are some cute little packages - one has a pumpkin cookie (ohhhhh I love pumpkin!), and another has a beautiful chicken (my faaaaave!) goodie in it. The last has a couple of fortune cookies (man, I'm ready for a great fortune about my future!) and I begged Ma to give me one - NOW!

So Mom agreed to feed me my first "hard" food since the operation! But first...

My grandpeep read me my fortune and it is such a great one: " You care not where your human lives as long as he lives with you." Isn't that the truth? Now give me my cookie!!!!!!!!

Snarf! Got that down very quickly and OOOOOhhhhhh - so, so good after a week of baby (yuck) food! My teeth loved knashing and crunching (crunch, crunch) on something so delectibly yum-alicious - more....more!

Then, I got a couple of carob peanut cookies too! They are also so amazingly good - grandpeep wanted one, but the directions tell humans that my cookies are not to be consumed by them! Good! All the more for me! I am so grateful that Top Dog Bakery exists to make such great treats with such delicious and heathy ingredients - Wowzer are these cookies fabulocious!

Thank You SOOOOOOOO much, Mason Dixie! I prize your gift, as you can imagine and it DOES make me feel very, very happy! As you know, I love to eat - anything, apparently, but your contribution to my diet makes my mom and dad very thankful that it is so healthy and good for me! Plus, I love, love, love what I've sampled so far!
And I AMMMM feeling so much better - each day a little spunkier and moving a little better! I get to have my stitches out next Friday and cannot wait for that day to come!
With Hugs and xxxxxx,

I am so glad you are getting better, and even more happy that your first piece of solid food was from me!!! I am so glad you like your surprise. The post was great. Can not wait to see that wicked scar you are going to have and be able to tell stories about years from now when someone says "Sammie where did you get that scar?" oh to the future. =)
