Welcome Home

2007-07-26-1620-01Well, we arrived home today, stopping to pick up Pappy before heading to the house. He had a pretty posh setup with our friends, what with kids drooling all over him and sleeping with him every night, but he at least feigned some enthusiasm about my appearance.

2007-07-26-1610-01When our neighbor later dropped off our mail, there was a special package in it for Pappy from Jackson. It was his prize for winning the World Moustache and Beard Championship for Dogs. There was an amazing Tuffy's octopus-- Pappy will eventually see the inside of this beast, but it should take a long time. In addition there were some delightful cookies-- they are just beautiful, but they do have a faint aftertaste of liver. Oh, they were for him? Seriously, I gave one to Pappy and he's been crying over it for a half-hour.

Thanks enormously to Jackson for his generous prize.

Hey Pappy, glad you like the prize. I'm sure the octopus won't last terribly long but toy destruction is what it's all about, right? J x

Wow, that Octous looks like it will be great fun - fetch, tuggie, chewing - the possibilities are endless!

Those cookies look so yummy! Have you eaten them all yet Pappy?

Thanks everyone, Jackson in particular. Pappy did make some headway in destuffing the octopus' noggin, but he has eight squeaky arms to work his way through. He's a highly motivated worker. As to the cookies, he had one. After a lengthy crying spell, he stopped carrying it around. I'm hoping he ate it.

Ya Pappy! We're glad you're back with your family and you have presents too! WAHOO!

Pappy doesn't have much choice in the matter, but I just sniffed and licked one. The icing is actually a bit sweet, and the cookie is a tiny bit cinnamon-y but hard as rocks.

Thanks. He's so happy he's crazy.
