I’m Grateful for My Friends!

Oh Dog! I am the most fortunate dog!  I have the most wonderful friends!

Yesterday I got a package in the mail from my friend Kevin from Japan!  He and his family were so kind to send gifts for my Gotcha! Day!

I was so thrilled I thought I’d show you what I got!

Can we hurry up?

Cool stamps!

The card is pawsome!

Each gift was so intricately wrapped! Oooohhhh!!!

Mmmm!!! Doggie Cheese!

Guarding my cookies! Yes DeDe- MINE!

This one says To June Buggie!

June Buggie LOVES the fish treats!

Even Jen got a gift! She says it's beautiful! It looks like Graybie Baby!

We are so very grateful to friends like Kevin.  We’re also grateful to you, who support us by regularly reading our blog.  It is wonderful to know we are so loved.

Speaking of love, I support the Santa Paws Drive.  We’re not in a place where we can support financially, but we can raise awareness so perhaps those of you that are able to can give.

So far the Santa Paws Drive has raised $300 toward their goal of $5400.  They hope to send a check for $900 and lots of toys to each of the six shelters they’ve chosen to help this year.  For more info about the program, click on the icon for a link to their website.

I know those dogs and cats will be very grateful!

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  5. Wow those look like awesome presents! Thanks for visiting. Did didn’t treat the wood in the cat tree. we considered baking it like you would for reptiles, but then he would have had to cut it small enough to fit in the oven.

  7. That’s wonderful of Kevin, Rumpy! But I feel a little sorry for De-de. That’s exactly how Bruno looked when we arrived with a new dog bed for Jigs. But we’ll have a Gotcha Day for De-de, too, right? 🙂

  18. I would love to have a package from Japan too, if they have all that amazing stuff there! And puzzle* urges me to say, that it all looks so pretty – well, maybe, but honestly, to paper and stamps I did not pay attention.

  24. Rumpy, how exciting getting presents in the mail. Kevin is a pretty cool friend. My people sometimes get presents in the mail but they don’t share. One time I was upset so I stole the malt balls from under the Christmas tree. Now they hide everything from me, but at least Santa brings me stuff. -Bongo

  30. I love that you shared this! I enjoyed seeing the gifts that Rumpy and June Buggie received. It looks like they really enjoyed them! These two really grow on me! June Buggie always seems to have has the same expression as cats often do, but I’m sure she really like the gift and if she could smile she would. Rumpy is adorable. They both make me smile. Can anyone send surprises to these 2 fun furry friends?
