What I Got!

A couple of weeks ago, Mom and I received an unexpected package in the mail from the bestest furiend a girl can have, Lorenza
I have to say, unexpected packages are the best!

Inside was this lovely card....

And this pretty box....

The box contained this beautiful bracelet for Mom!

Lorenza's Mom made it just for my Mom, wasn't that super nice?
Mom says it looks very pretty on her wrist.
Thanks Lorenza's Mom!

Well, as you might guess from the card,
there was something in there for me too.....

A new dress!
With dachshunds on it!
Made by Lorenza's lovely Grandma!
I wore it last time I went to the V.E.T.

I'm not too happy about going there again....

But, Daddy let me drive the car!
(Ok, I know you can see the speedometer is on zero but it was fun to pretend while we were at the stoplight)

The V.E.T.'s office has a pair of birds.

They were whistling at me.....
you know, the kind of whistle that says
"Twix, you look pretty in your new dress".
I promise I wasn't thinking about eating them.......

Oh! And here is one of my xrays....
you can't see anything on it but I sure look long, don't I?
Dr. Abby said I was full of you know what!

Lorenza and Mom, thank you so very much for my new dress and Momma's bracelet! You two are wonderful friends and we are so blessed to know you!

My buddy Joey is still in the doggie hospital but is slowly showing some improvement.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by last week and gave him some encouragement.
Feel free to send him some more get well wishes at his blog here.
 His family still prints out the comments he gets and reads them to him every day.

What a fabulous dress! I'm glad to hear that you're still doing alright.

I'd have been thinking about eating those birds, and I'm not ashamed to admit it!

A Lorenza Grandma original! You are going to be the talk of the neighborhood. Stunning!

Nice photo copy of your innards. I did not see anything unusual except for that you appear not to have any leggies. Perhaps they are removable for photos?

OMD OMD... you have the bestest dad.. mine NEVER lets me drive. It must have been that GORGEOUS dress from Lorenza's grandma. It looks wonderful on you. Perfect fit. Colors are just right for you. And.. Lorenza's mom made your mom a BRACELET !!! That is stunning. Those are two very much talented and GENEROUS ladies!!

Oh MY DOG! What great pressies from Lorenza and her mom! I have to agree with you that Lorenza is a great furfriend..me likes her too..She's got some great doggy fashion taste too, because that dress totally rocks on you! Sorrys that you had to go backs to the V-e-T! I hate that place so I can totally relate. That x-ray does show how long you are..
