A New Friend

Hello Friends.

When MOM and I got home there was a package on the front step. I noticed it right away.  Woo Hoo a package for me.  But MOM said it was for her.  WHAT?  No way!  So she took it in the house.  Instead of doing my normal patrol of my yard, like I do every time we get home, I just sat in the kitchen staring at the package on the kitchen table.  Finally after 87 hours MOM opened it up.  And would you lookie  here.

It's a Platypus!  
I knew it, it was for me.  OK to be fair, there was a book in with the Platypus, I guess I will let MOM have that.  But it does look real good, it's called "Start Something That Matters".  But back to the Platypus (I love saying that word) ....Platypus, Platypus, Platypus, Platypus...  Oh that is fun.   hehhehe

Ewwww, what is that smell?  I did not fart... it was the Platypus.   hahhaha.  Makes it even funnier.  

I have named him Jeremiah.  
My most beautiful friend LYDIA sent it to me.  Jeremiah squeaks when you squeeze his legs AND he makes this honk like sound when you squeeze his tummy, just like a real life Platypus.  Hahhahah Platypus.  "Hey MOM I think I would like to read a book to Jeremiah."

"Oh yes Jeremiah, MOM and I read a book almost every night.  This one is called "Dog Loves Books."  

"WOW Goose I never knew reading could be so fun."
"I know, right?"
"I bet it is even funner than say... oh I don't know... funner than chewing on my legs and tummy."
"Well lets not get carried away little buddy."

Thank you Miss Lydia, I LOVE IT!  
And oh how you made my MOM smile.  :). 


  1. I am so happy for you Goose!!!
    You know when I look at you I see Zoie!!!!
    I MISS MISS MISS her so!!!!!!
    Love you Goose!!

  2. That sure is a cute platypus! I like saying that word too.


  3. What a thoughtful gift for you and your mom. Gotta love those platypuses... or is it platypi?

  4. You have the most wonderful friends! What cool gifts.

    A platypus, now isn't that something? Did you know they are one of only two mammals that are born in eggs? AND that the male has poisonous stingers on his back legs...so beware!

  5. Wow, what an amazing gift Goose!! Hehehe, I love the word Platypus too!! I hope that you have a great time playing with Jeremiah and reading with him too! :-D

  6. Oh how cool is that?? Have fun with your new friend!!

    Goose! All these years in OZ I never heard a platypus honk. Jeremiah is very special! Well done on teaching him to read. You be sure to keep an eye on Menosukhi Monday at my place, 'cos I will get round one week to telling you about Jade and a certain not-beaver...;-)

    Here in India today is Holi - festival of colours. It always happens the same week as Easter as it is tied in with the full moon. Very joyful. Wishing you all happy preparations for Maunday Thursday. Hugs and wags, YAM_aunty

  9. Wowserz! That's an AWESOME toy! I bet you're having loads of fun with it! :)

    Woofs & huggies, <3

    Mom LOL'd and her eyes watered when she read, "I didn't fart... it was the Platypus."
    Dang that is on honking big yellow Platypus, he kind of like Big Bird got squashed by Godzilla.
    Mom is still laughing...If you say Platypus farted 3 times fast, your tongue will get wrapped around your eye teeth and you cannot see what you are saying.
    Hugs madi your BFFF and Mom

  15. That's a great name for your Platypus Goose! We just love it. We have a little problem spelling Platypus. It's like a whole bunch of letters all scrambled up together. You're right, it's a fun word to say tho. We're so glad to see that Jeremiah enjoys story time as much as you do. I hope that he can stick around awhile in one piece.

  33. Platypus! Platypus! Platypus! Platypus! Platypus! Platypus!
    You're right - that's very fun! He squeaks AND honks?!? That is totally cool, Goose.
    One question, though - I thought Jeremiah was a bullfrog? Ha woo. At least according to some song on my mom's iPad that's like 87 years old.
    Platypus! Platypus! Platypus! Platypus!

  34. Wow, a farting Platypus! What could be better???

  35. Dear Goose,

    You must be good to your Platypus and love him. Do not ever bit him hard or tear him because moms always take away torn toys and you never see them again.

    PS. You look smashing in those photos!
