WOW WOW WOW! As I pulled into the garage this afternoon, I thought, "Well, someone got Alessia's package today. Could it be me? IT WAS!! OMG Alessia, you were too kind and generous. The box is so cute, with the Florida to Kansas drawn on the side. Izzy is a very good helper and danced around me as I opened things. Every stuffy that came out she immediately snatched up and raced off with to hide in her crate. Jet was a little more laid back and watched from the couch, but once he realized some of the packages had treats in them he became very interested!! Spike was very impressed with the box and his catnip toys. We tried the outfits on them and they fit great! So many stuffed toys, squeaky balls, great treats, 2 sets of outfits, rope toys, dog bed, food mat, wet wipes, a set of dog playing cards...whew! I was especially excited to see the large stuffed dog in the box. Izzy had one like it and LOVED it a few years ago, but a foster peed on it so much it had to go. She loves the giant stuffed toys, and was super excited to see that one. I've got several pictures here, and a video I'll upload. I'll get more video on here later. Thanks so much, this just made the week!

Oh, Karen! In 2 of the "stocking" gifts (the dog and kitty stockings that had several toys inside them) have $40 worth of coupons/discounts in each of them to use at Petsmart. I hope you can find what I'm talking about. I should've mentioned that in my card Posted Image

  • 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.
