Mom went to the mail box on Tuesday and when she opened it, she found a package in there. She started racking her brain for what she might have ordered from Ebay or a mail order company and could come up with nothing.
She then saw a Royal Mail postage mark and a customs sticker on the package. This really got her intrigued - and the package was sent to Rocky Creek Scotties. That's us!! We got mail!
When Mom came in she put the package down in the floor for us to sniff. Due to our wonderful olfactory sense, we could smell Sally and Paddy. Had they come across the ocean to visit us?? And how did they get so flat?Mom helped us with the tape - the beautiful tape with aquatic life on it. And then we got the package open. The cardboard around it had "DUCKHAMS" written on it. It this some new strange treat we've never had - how big can a duck ham be when you compare it to one that comes off of a pig? We didn't even know that ducks had hams.
AHH! More of that beautiful tape and some bubble wrap needed to be removed and then we saw this fantastic game.
Mom helped us take the lid off and we saw the game pieces - how precious - 4 little Scotties, just like us. Can you see they are anxious to get out and play? All but one is starting to do a "Scottie Stand".
And then we saw this beautiful card - check out the glasses. It said:
Dear Rocky Creek Scotties and humans,
Well, we thought you might like this game too!! Plus there are 4 of you and only 2 of us.
We love your blog and are trying to have photos taken of our tongues, but we are proving too fast for the camera.
