A Surprise

Hello Friends.

On Thursday when MOM and I got home I jumped out of the Blazer and head to the back door.  On my way I skidded to a stop at the garage door.  There sitting against the door was a box.  It was to big for me to carry it off.  I pawed at it and then MOM picked it up.  When we got into the house MOM said, "Not this time Goose, it is addressed to me."  But I did not think this was so.  I knew that smell, and it told me it was for me.  And sure enough, when MOM turned the box over there it was.

See right there, it says "To my bu (I think that suppose to say 'buddy') goose".  It's from my pal, and Valentine companion to the Valentine Ball, EASY.

I'm so excited.  Let's see what's in here.

Look at all this GREAT stuff!

See it really is for me.  The envelope and card say so.

Easy sent me a frog that croaks, some yummy treats, a really cool ball, a plushy heart pillow that says "King of Love", a camo leash, a pink doggie, the DVD of me and Easy's favorite movie "Best in Show."

And there was this.  It's a dog coat.  But it's not for me.  Easy wants me and MOM to give it to Norski (a dog at the Homeless Shelter who is just a pup).  Easy you have a heart of pure beauty.  So giving and thoughtful.

Oh I LOVE this ball!  MOM put my new camo leash on and asked if I wanted to go for a walk.  But I wanted to play with my ball.

And hold my frog.

And play with my ball.

And eat a yummy snack.

And play with my ball.

And hold my King of Love pillow.

Why did Easy shower me with all this wonderful stuffs?  The card said it was for my birthday.  When MOM read me the card she said I would have to put it all away until my birthday.  WHAT?!!  But then I gave this look you see above and she could not resits and said I could have it all now.  What a wonderful early birthday surprise.  See my birthday is on the 14th of February.  That's right friends I was born on Valentines Day.  I will turn 13 years old this Thursday.  And from the looks of things 13 is going to be a very good year.

THANK YOU EASY!!!!!  I am overwhelmed by your thoughtfulness.   I love ya brother!  And not for all this super cool stuff, but for being my good friend.  I can't wait for the Valentines Ball where I can give you a proper sniff of thanks.

Oh one last thing.  It is snowing again and is suppose to keep snowing through Sunday.  Rest assured Easy I will keep plenty warm in my very warm and water proof coat.  And of course I will look handsome doing it.

  15. Very good blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little
    lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free
    platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

    OMCs Goose King of Love that is such a great title for you especially since your b-day is on
    Valentine's Day. The local Country radio station has a fun time with V-day. Last week they took requests from folks who want to send a special Valentine greeting to a loved one. One of the dj's dresses up as the Love Meister. He goes to visit folks during the morning show. Too funny.
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  20. I'm so glad the postman has found you with all those snow :o) and I'm happy you like it. btw: If you can find out the phone number of Beatrice (the weim-girl in the movie) please let me know ;o) Have a wonderful weekend and give Norski a kiss from me ;o)
