Unexpected Gifts Are The BEST! Thankful Thursday

Hi and happy New Year every one!

Hope you rang wagged it in, in style!! Wishing every one a pawsome and healthy 2014!

Before I lock the vault on 2013 I have something super special to share with you today and Monday too!

While going about my daily doggy tasks a week or so ago, there was a knock at the door. It was my good buddy nemesis, MR.MAIL PERSON!! He had a special package just for me!

I wasn’t expecting anything so I couldn’t imagine who it could be from, or what it could be. I opened the box and received the surprise of my life!

It seems that Santa conspired with one of my favorite doggy friends, Pepper Pomeranian, from the blog Pepper’s Paws  and they sent me a super cool gift for CHANUKAH!!  I was spinning with delight!

Look at what I got!

 It was a plush Chanukah dog toy from last season’s PetSmart Multipet Plush Chanukah line!

I couldn’t wait to put the bitey on it!

Mom tried to get a good video of me playing with it, but once I realized that once again my privacy was being violated by being  filmed, I wanted no part of it!

THANK YOU PEPPER for this most THOUGHTFUL and DEEPLY APPRECIATED GIFT! You helped to make my holiday extra special! I will think of you every time I play with it!
