I told my husband I was having patience problems, and he told me just to open the box without him. SO I DID! Thanks, DJ and Ashli!!!

The dogs weren't very patient either. Bonnie kept coming up to the box and trying to smell and lick it.

Both, especially Stevie, with those big ole puppy eyes begging me to open it.

The first gift- Dog treat mix with a bone shaped cookie cutter! :) So cute. Bonnie kept trying to lick the bag... lol

Then the toys! I had barely taken the paper off this giraffe when Bonnie claimed it as her own. Tags and all still attached. I couldn't get to her fast enough to take them off for a while. Every time Stevie made a move to check it out, she took it to her lair (crate).

Stevie uses that distraction for his benefit.

Next were two soft, SOFT!!! blankets. I love the colors and patterns for both of them, too. :) Unfortunately, Stevie and Bonnie were a little too busy to enjoy the blankets at first.

I particularly love the mug. I am SO not a morning person since having Evelyn! The picture frame stand is so cute too!

At the end of it all, Stevie started to dig in at the blankets.
"Wow! That was fun. Let's do this again next year. For now, I'm pooped!"

Thanks so so much, DJ, Ashli, Kaydence, and Atreyu! We loved our gifts!!! (And I might have to snuggle up next to Stevie on those blankets... so, so soft!) :)

  • Interests:My main interest is loving and caring for my 2 IG girls, Allie and Riley, as well as my cat, Sabrina. I adore all animals, but I have a passion for IGs. This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

Update: I FINALLY was able to get the giraffe away from them long enough to stick an empty water bottle inside it. They have been playing with that toy NON STOP for about a half hour now. I think they have a new favorite! lol. And they love snuggling down in their new blankets whenever they can stop long enough to put the toys down. :)

Those blankets are AMAZING. I am -almost- jealous of the dogs! I need to find one in MY size and then I would be so set! :)
