The One with Christmas in October

Everyone knows the Portuguese Water Blog pups, right?? They are not only cute but SO generous! When they reached a blog milestone - 500 posts!! - they had a giveaway contest and we were one of the winners!

Our package arrived on FRIDAY but mom made us wait until today to open it because she's mean the camera battery was dead. So this evening she presented The Box.

Cali, do you see all of these pressies???
Of course, I do! This is pawsome!Look at this one, Cali, it looks like it might be a duck!
What do you think this is with this pretty ribbon?Zona! I think there's another ducky
over here
behind the pressie with the bow!
Let's read the card - isn't it beautiful!
Sue is so creative!Mom, back to the gifts, let's unwrap them!LOOK!! It's a Flying Cow frisbee just like Samba's!YEP, it WAS a duckie!Mine is a duck too!
Wait! Cali, do you see that? We missed the blue one!A THIRD super cute duck!
Here I am introducing him to my OLD boring duck.
THANK YOU! We love our pressies!Oh, I almost forgot to tell you...
That pressie with the bow on it?

That was a gift for mom!
Isn't this amazing??
The bracelet even has a duck charm!

AND a charm for my nemesis -
you know to remind mom to be vigilant!
But the most exciting part for us was our new toys!
I clearly loved my duck!
They're squeaky!!

I spied Phoeny playing with my Flying Cow.
That's okay... for now.
Soon I will need to ask Samba for some tips
on how she gets such fantastical form!

  5. Zona and Cali and Phoenix,
    We're so glad you liked all your new toys. We think it's lots of fun to have new things to play with. Samba says practice with your flying cow and you'll get good at catching it. Those things can really fly. Mom says she's glad your Mom likes her bracelet. Thanks for being our bloggy friends.

    You asked if I'm caught up on BBT yet. Well, I've set the DVR so now I'll never miss an episode which has allowed me to watch the last two. I still haven't seen the very first one or the rest of the second one of this season though. Guess I'll have to go to or something for that. Hard to believe that it's been on for a whole month already!
