All the Way from Cali...

Cardi Claus has arrived! There was a package on my stoop with a lovely calligraphy address label. The boys and I could not wait to open it.



I opened the package and what should I find, but a lovely note from Melissa, Darby & Pumpkin and all sorts of goodies for human and canine!


The boyz could NOT wait to get their little paws on the mini water bottle crunchers!




I have to say Ike has an odd relationship with toys. Usually he will do the terrier neck breaker and then trot off to bed with the toy in question, make a nest with the toy in his mouth, and go to sleep. Not with this toy. He ran off with it and proceeded to chew and chew on it! And Bug, well, I can STILL hear the bottle crunching in the other room! I think the boys agree these toys are winners.

They caught a whiff of the Natural Balance rolls, but I think I will save those for training. I don't know about your dogs, but mine think those are pretty high value.

It is supposed to be very cold this week so the new hat is just in time (especially because I have only managed to find my mittens and not my scarves and hats)! It smells lovely, a bit like lavender, and I am sure it will be very warm tomorrow morning on our walk!

I haven't read the book (The Shepherd, the Angel, and Walter the Christmas Miracle Dog) and look forward to any book that includes dogs! :) Perhaps I will read it with a fire going by my christmas tree. With hot cocoa! Doesn't that sound perfect?

Melissa, Darby, and Pumpkin - thank you for a lovely package!

I'm glad you and your "kids" enjoyed the Cardi Claus package contents. I hope the hat fits...I knit it to the specs of the pattern. Funny thing about those crunchy-toys: I have yet to hear of a dog that doesn't like them. I'm enjoying your blog...and all because of Cardi Claus.

Melissa, I tried the hat on yesterday and it fit perfectly! You are very talented!

I agree - it's wonderful how Cardi Claus is introducing us to more cardi friends!

Me too! It is making me a nervous wreck. ETA was 12/3. Hopefully all the packages will arrive safe and sound!
