Paw it Forward Pressies

My good pal Brind'Amour finally explained to me how Paw it Forward works and asked me if I wanted to play. Apparently you get a pressie from a pal and then you write about it and the first three doggies to comment get pressies from you! How cool is that?

So my package arrived like totally forever ago, but I only just now got to open it due to lazy people in the house.

What could it be???

A nice card with his handsome self on it!

There were many words inside, but the one that caught my attention was MONKEY!

A shrieking Lacie beast monkey to be exact! Can you see it in my large and vice-like chompers?

I took the monkey into the living room to keep it safe from Pee-Wee. I like this movie because you can hear my dainty footsteps as I walk on the hard floors (kind of sounds like a horse, huh? that must be why momma wakes up whenever I walk around at night performing my patrol).

I was kind of annoyed that Momma kept stepping on the monkey. I just really wanted to hang out with him.

There was also a Pet Brag Tag which I think is for Momma, but is small enough that I could perhaps put a picture of my darlin MJ to wear on my collar.

And of course..... FOODABLES!


Humph! Why does Pee-Wee get one? The package clearly said "Mango."

You can see on the floor there was one of those Frisbee things as well. Momma said we might "save that for later" which I think is code that we'll save it for when she is watching me so I don't accidentally eat it like I did the last one.

There were also paw print post-its which the DOH can use to write mysterious notes to herself like "9:00" Whatever.

Sadly, the first note was not too mysterious. Sigh...

Brind included a stylish bandanana that Pee-Wee agreed to try on whilst not so discreetly checking the box for more goodies.

He found this cat (hee hee, I already took it out, applied Mango slobbers, and put it back in the box - no wonder that kittie looks so grouchy).

That's OK, let the little guy have it. He deserves stuffies too, I guess.

I am just going to meditate for a while and think on all the wonderful pals I have in blog land and send giant Mango thanks to Brind.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

Mango What a Monkey! I think your Momma was stepping on it though to wear out the battery, that way she wont wake up in the middle of the night to him!! BOL If you need some pups to play with you, I would love too! I just finished playing with Ludo and it was SO much fun!! but if their are some newbies that's ok too!

That was a really great box of pressies... how nice to get you a new Monkey! AND one with a SQUEAKY!!! We LOVE squeakies, but usually end up fighting over them and then they fall apart. :(

PS. We posted 2 posts in one day and I think some readers are missing the 100 Dog Years War, one. Hope you get a chance to read it! OC

Ciao enorme Mango!

Ooooooh! Monkey!! I have a monkey, too -- the very first toy I got as a pupgirl -- and I adore him, but he just squeaks. YOURS makes an exciting and intoxicating screech ... santa vacca!!! Fantastico! How nice that your bud, Brind, sent you such a wonderful box of pressies and treats!

Tanti baci!

Hey buddies,

You have been nominated for Photo of the Month - head on over to The Bone Zone to cast your vote :)





I couldn't watch the videos but I think I can feel your footsteps here in Marlboro anyways. You are one lucky beast getting all those pressies. How does peewee always get ahold of them??? Oh by the way.. bandanas go around the neck not worn as a hat.

Enjoy the edible treats - they are always the best!!!

Hey there Mango. When we read your post our human was enjoying your monkey video so much she forgot about the rules to these paw it forwards. She just commented and never thought about that we were the first one.

We have always made sure we comment after the first three commenters before as it would cost an awful lot for you to post anything over here to us. We are very sorry for confusing you and being a pain but we were not going to take part in it, we just enjoyed watching you. Could you maybe pick the next one down on your list to play?...

Sorry again, our human really should have read everything better. She wouldn't have asked to have anything posted here because of the p&p costs if she had actually thought before she

Holly & Zac... hoping we will still be pals after our human has messed you around.....

Brind'Amour said...

Hey Mango,

Glad you are enjoying your pressies. It's very nice of you to share with Pee Wee. Have fun with everything, you deserve it big guy!
