for coming up with the idea
and hosting a gift exchange for blogging doggies.
By having this exchange,
we got to meet and make
The Richardson Zoo
(not too far away from us)
got our name.
And did they ever send
This is how it started out -
Piper and Mom and been on a walk
and were coming back to the house
when Piper (the ever observant one)
noticed there was a package on our porch.
Our Mom had ordered some Christmas gifts
so she was sure the package was for her.
Upon closer investigation
we found that Mom was WRONG!!
(well partly wrong)
The package was addressed to
The Rocky Creek Scotties and Java.
We could just smell the love
and the wonderful treats
before we could get Mom
to get the tape off.
Once we opened it we found
2 large bags of treats
2 sets of tennis ball tug of war toys
a squeaky reindeer
(of course Piper claimed that one first off)
a Christmas tug of war toyand a Scottie glass
full of one of Mom's favorite candies.
And she's claimed that for herself
and has it sitting on the shelf
in the kitchen.
We so appreciate the generosity
and we know you'd love to visit
the Richardsons -
they are even posting
a Christmas furiend of the day
and Snazzi and Piper
have already been featured.
We had more pictures of us
opening our pressies,
but Blogger is being obstinate
about uploading pictures today.
Guess what happened yesterday??
Well if you live anywhere in the United States,
you probably know that most of the
Eastern states were hammered
with a big storm.
Ours came down in the form of snow.
About 12 inches of it.
And it came down fast.
How about a snownut?
We were so glad that we had
our raincoats to cut down on the
collection of snowballs.
But it is so deep that
when we step off of our
that we just sink up
over our heads.
We're fortunate that we have
an open carport
that has very little snow
collected in it.
Mom decided that if it was going to snow
she wanted to play Monopoly
so she went out yesterday
and got us a new Monopoly game-
it sure makes those grownups
laugh a lot!
We're so glad our sissy is here -
she gives us lots of treats and snuggs.
We wish she'd stay with us.
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java
