Thank Goodness for our Friends!

I know we've been away furever. Mom has been doing extra sucking up for not bringing us any presents back from Utah. She says her return should have been the best present of all, but we're not buying that crap.


So, she's been taking us on lots of long walks and giving us lots of chewies to ease her guilt. Moo Tubes can buy a lot of forgiveness!





Mom also said we shouldn't feel too deprived because we got a couple of great packages in the mail from 2 fabulous ladies! The first one is from little Princess Snowball and it came all the way from Singapaw! Look at all of this great stuff she sent ME!



I got these pawesome bungee bones and TWO tennis balls! Yes, I know there is only one in this picture...the other one went to tennis ball heaven in the backyard. And the other one is not far behind. But I got hours of enjoyment from it so they served me well while on this earth.

Snowball sent me some of those famous Singapaw BURP! treats and let me tell you, they live up to their reputation! You will notice...they are all gone. There are also some cookies that we are gonna tear into this week. I'm gonna be nice & share with Penny...and maybe Sherman. Probably not, though.



And just what every Diva needs...a new purse and a GIANT diamond ring!






I think it's the pawfect amount of carrots, don't you?




Penny & I fought over the purse.





Yes, it was MY present...but Penny is older & stronger than me. Plus, I'm working on making her a little more fem. So I gave in.







We also got a box of goodies from the lovely Miss Sophie la Brador!


No surprise...fat boy took the burger.

And the football.




I think he really believes he is The Bus.



Thank you to Snowball & Sophie for such wonderful presents!! You ladies made our week!

I also had been dying to get an entry in for Koobie's Easter Bonnet contest, but we're a little challenged in the costume dept here on Jackman Ave. Asta the Fantastica to the rescue! She helped me pick out a bootiful bonnet for Easter...she even captures my love of all things tennis ball in this picture. Thanks for all your help, Asta!!!


I'm ready for Easter!! Bring on the bunnies...

Ooooh, I LOVE football! Do you think Sherman would let me play? He's kind of Steelers' colors and I'm kind of ... Cleveland Browns. Hee hee hee! It would be a great game!

Lola Girl!

That tennis ball completed the outfit, I'm tellin' ya.

Those presents look FAB and I think Miss Snowball & Miss Sophie have great taste in presents, and in friends!

You are growing up, little Lola. You're even sharing with Sherm. I'm impressed.

Goober love & smooches (even to your mama),

Ozzie & Rocky

Sophie Brador said...

Oh man Lola, You and I could really bond over that tennis ball thing.

Guess what?! I lost one of the balls you sent ... one of those light pink coloured ones .... in the big field out behind our house. That was weeks ago and I forgot all about it until me and my mom were walking through the field the other day and meet a Rottweiller named Alice with a light pink tennis ball in her mouth. It just has to be mine, because you can't buy those ones in Canada. But she was a toughie, so I let her keep it.

ENJOY YOUR TOYS ... and your mom being back!
