International Goodie Exchange



I was delighted to discover that my new pal Eric the WFT was going to be sending me gifts as part of the International Goodie Exchange. My parcel arrived last week and it was ram-jammed full of pawsome stuff, all beautifully packaged.

J1 had to shut me out of the room to photograph it, cos I wanted it all RIGHT THIS MINUTE!

The bonanza box included:

2 x chocolate flavour tennis balls (one has already been eaten, thanks pal, it was yummy!)

Carrot treats (apparently they're suitable for Dogs, Rabbits and Rodents). Sorry, but I'm not sharing with any rodents! Or Rabbits for that matter.

Lamb toy. As Eric said on the label, "a lamb to the slaughter"



Dog pyramid (strangely, I'm more interested in the plastic-y deliciousness of the outside, rather than the treats hidden inside).



My own brand of Fairtrade tea for the Js. Plenty of slurps for me!



Hand made Kitty biscuits. Probably the closest I'll ever get to a kitty, unless I manage to catch one again.

Here's Eric supervising the baking:


There was even a book for J1 to read to me before snoozies, called Tips the Terrier.



Thank you Eric for your bumper box of goodies and thanks also to Mr T-Bone Beasley and Chef for the great idea of the goodie exchange! I'm going to be busy enjoying this shedload of stuff for quite some time!

Madison got me a lamb like that a little while ago. It's currently all over the living room.

Enjoy your treats.

Has it been destuffed? How how the heck did you get your own flavor of tea? I want some of that! Oh man! You are one lucky dog! Heheeheh!

Totally great gifts from Eric, Jackson! Has the lamb been slaughtered yet? He he!!! I bet you'll be busy with all those treats and toys for awhile. Maybe it will keep you out of trouble, maybe...

So Jax, are those cookies made of kitties or just kitty flavored?

J1 was very smart to shut you out of the room to take photos -- our Mom never got individual pix because we were all over everything and each other.

We square dogs know how to live life to the fullest, don't we!!!

Lots of hot and humid woofs,

Jake and Just Harry
