PAW IT FORWARD - Gifts have arrived

Today while home for lunch HDM had something delivered to the door by a very nice mail lady.  Of course we barked and that mail lady ran really quick back to her mail truck but at least she left a package for us.  HDM snapped a couple of pictures of the package and the mail truck leaving, but than said opening must wait until she gets home from work.

What mail for The Hounddogs, that does not ever happen. Our friends Droopy and Callie received a Paw It Forward gift from a good friend of theirs and announced on their blog they were looking for blogging buddies to play Paw It Forward with. Heck ya we signed up, because we never have done it before and we don't ever get packages. Even though we watch that mail truck come down our road everyday and just pass us up.

We received a confirmation pee-mail from The Cheesehounds - Droopy and Callie Human Mom that our package was in the mail and to begin watching for it. Which we did for few days than went on our camping trip for the weekend so we were so hoping it would not arrive while we were gone. Heck someone might have seen it on the porch and took it from us if it came while we were gone, since the House had no protectors but them silly 4 legged fur things HDM calls "Cats" outside.

Our package at the front door.

The nice mail lady leaving rather quickly.

What we don't get to open it right way, heck maybe Winston can sneek it off the counter and we will have already opened it before she gets home.  I don't think she would like that because than she would not have any pictures to post.  So I guess we will just sit and stare and dream about what it contains for the afternoon.  It was damaged on one corner but that allowed us to sniff it out really good.  We cannot wait for this afternoon to come.

Our package (slightly damaged) but we could smell it good.

Well get ready for picture overload because we are about to dig into this wonderful Paw It Forward package we received from Droopy and Callie.

First HDM let each of us smell it and sniff it out really good.  I wonder what is in here it smells so yummy.

HDM then opened the package to see what we had.  We had individual wrapped pressies and a card addressed to us.

Is this not the coolest card, doggie paws all over it.

Cleo was first to receive her gifts.  As you can tell she was more than ready to see what she got.  You have to excuse the blurry pictures because these are true action shots.

 Oh, this thing is awesome I can surely drive the humans crazy with all these squeakers in here.

Winston was next to see what goodies he got.  Again, action shots because we love to open pressies.  It is like Christmas in July.

I got this squeaky thing that makes more of a honking noise, surely to drive the humans crazy as well.

Amiee's turn, just not quite sure what to do when you give her a wrapped toy.  I know the pictures don't show it but she was excited.

It's mine and you can't have it.

Amiee got this really cool rack of ribs, which squeaks in each rib bone.  Actually I almost bought them one of these the other day because I thought the multiple squeaking was pretty cool.

There wasn't just toys in there, we also got yummy "begging bacon strips", which HDM controls the distribution of these.

Some new bandannas to wear, we will model these in a later post.

Oh, and the humans got something as well.  Hot sauce, HDD loves Hot Sauce.

Then Cleo stole Winston toy and was hording them.  Which one do I want.

Then Winston stole it back.

And Amiee just decided to keep hers tucked underneath her so nobody could steal it.

Droopy and Callie we can't thank you enough for sending us our first "mail package" and allowing us to play PAW IT FORWARD with you.  Sorry we don't have a group picture of us and all our loot, you had to stay close to your toys if you didn't want someone else to steal them.

We love our new squeaky toys, treats and bandannas, this PAW IT FORWARD game is totally awesome and know we want to play PAW IT FORWARD with you!!!
