We had been on our regular mid-morning walk,
when all of a sudden
Carrleigh discovered a box
on our front porch.
We hadn't noticed it there before.

We were so excited and hurried over
to check it out.
But it was taped up
nice and tight
and Mom said we'd have
to bring it inside to open it.

Guess what??
It was full of popcorn.
Piper could hardly wait to chow down,
but he reconsidered once
he figured out it didn't smell like popcorn.

It smelled like cranberries.
And was a beautiful candle
called "Silver Bells"
Mom tried to take of picture of it lit,
but her photography skills are so lacking.

It was a gift from those sweet
folks and dogs
over at
I Need a Sugar Fix Blog.
If you don't know them,
stop by and say "hi" to
Candy and Captain Crunch
and their wonderful peeps,
Martine and Seth.
You'll be glad you did.

Thank you so much for the candle.
Mom loves the fragrance
and she says it
delightfully covers us something called
"dog smells".
Do you have that smell at your house too?

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Hi Scotties and Java,
With only one dog around our dog smalls are not to bad. I do run a air cleaner everynight all night tho.I think that does help too.
How is every one Lynn?
Love you all, Bambi and Fern

Isn't that popcorn great? The last package we got had that popcorn in it and I had a GREAT time. Me. Fergi. The doggie that doesn't play with toys. I LOVED that crunchy white stuff. But I guess I understand why the people like things like nicely scented candles better. And I'm glad you AND your moma were able to enjoy the whole experience of the package. Everybody smiles! What a nice gift!

Fergi (and Jake - now HE has doggie smells that need to be dealt with - yes, he does!)

It's always lovely to get surprises like that...and it looks sooo interesting! We haven't got that stuff around here, but Mom love nice smells. Do enjoy your gift...Mom.
(ps Please accept our apologies for giving you a fright yesterday! We got so caught up in the fun of it all that we erred in the heading! luv Max's mom)

Dog smells?? Why would anyone want to cover up dog smells?

It's a nice present anyway.
