Unexpected Surprises from Wild Dingo and Aunt Linda!

We were incredibly surprised and delighted when a package arrived from the Country Corgi crew. Mum asked me if I had sent them a Christmas card but I could not remember, besides wasn't that Dottie's job this year? Cooper said it had to be food because it smelled like food. Dottie just wanted to eat the padded envelope. Mum carefully opened the package and what do you think Aunt Linda had sent us? Nothing, she sent it all to me! Okay, she sent it to all of us, I was just checking to see if you were really reading this.

Aunt Linda (Grammy) drew this picture of me. Can you believe it? Mum was stunned to say the least. She kept looking at it and simply was amazed at Aunt Linda's talent. Well really folks, look at the subject matter - how could she not draw a little piece of perfection when it is a picture of me? Mum put the picture on our old fold-down desk by the lamp, so its light falls on the picture just so. Aunty Linda, I have Mum making you a thank you card but we wanted everyone to see your talent. (There were some chicken chewies too but unfortunately we tackled Mum and ate them all before she could take a picture.)

Those fun folks at Wild Dingo sent us this consolation prize for their contest which was one of the funniest experiences we have had on the Net. The answer to the contest was that those guys are moving to Switzerland - we guessed they were selling women's lingerie with the Swiss Miss lady as the model - so the fact that we even were close to being remotely correct by any stretch of anyone's imagination was a miracle. We also won a pair of Wild Dingo pantaloons but we have to find an appropriate picture to get our panties. Cooper says my butt is big enough for two pairs but we won't go there.

Thank you for our gifts, especially the edible ones! But more importantly, thanks for being our pals.

Linda has many talents...writing, painting, thinking, and living her life. You're lucky to be a recipient of her work! It's terrific!

Sorry for not visiting sooner...Hope you had a great New Year's celebration!

Wow, that is such a cool painting of you, Dozer! I think you would look cool in those pantaloons! Do show us the photos! *wink*

Oh, I'm so glad that you liked the picture. Mom wasn't sure as if every hair isn't right, she doesn't think it's good enough. She hoped that your Mom would like it and that you all would enjoy the treats I told her MUST be included because she was sending something to a CORGI, for crying out loud, and she didn't want to embarrass ME did she!

Your other treats look pretty good too, and we have been trying to convince Mom to get us some of Yassy's Surf & Turf Jerky which has salmon in it. Hope you are having a great start to your New Year, everyone! OC
