Darby does Christmas

Did you know that Darby has a pen pal? Well, she does. Although, you could call her more like a package pal...cuz she doesnt really wield a pen. (Tho, Im sure she could because shes a very smart little dog.)

And this Christmas, she sent Darby a package.

Which Darby is very excited about.

So excited that she has made it known that she would like some space of her own to open it.

She asks G for a little assistance.

Awwww...look. Its a little ball.

Darby loves to play catch.

Back to the paper.

You see, this package that was sent to Darby had little dog treats tied to it. Coffee cookies to be exact. And those are very, very special. Although, you cant really see them anymore because it took her all of 5 seconds to gobble them up.

But that doesnt mean that she still doesnt want to have the paper so that she can make sure they are, in fact, all gone.

She will even jump really high to get that paper.

And then pretend that shes over that paper all together.

That didnt last long....She cant fool us.

Thank you sweet Roxy for the gift. That was very, very nice of you.

Too funny! I love that big ol' jump photo...that made me laugh out loud! We (Rox and I) are so happy she likes the ball. I do suppose, though, that I should post *our* side of that package story. You know, the part about those dang coffee cookies and how they kept disappearing off the package. It was just the strangest thing....

What a great story! The photos really catch Darby's personality. She looks like a wonderful part of your family.

Lucky, lucky doggy! Just like human kids though--sometimes they love the packaging as much as the toy that comes in it. :)

Just a word of caution many Christmas wrapping papers contain toxic chemicals, I was told by a vet that presents that animals are going to unwrap themselves should be wrapped in plain butcher paper. Just sayin'.

Cute ball & cute doggies! What are "coffee cookies" for dogs? said...

Cute, cute, CUTE!!! I just love the jumps - that 3rd picture is just the best!!! Roxy sure is a great package pal. She did a great job on the ribbons - and she even bakes cookies! Darby sure is lucky to have such a great package pal.
