Thank you Gerri and Gracie!!!!! Posted Image I was SO excited when during my lunch break I checked my e-mail and saw that the front desk of my building had sent me a notification that a box from "Gerri & Gracie" had arrived!!!! Posted Image

I LOVE the box! Check out all the stickers!!!!

Posted Image

Now... I have a decision to make... which I will leave up to Gerri to decide hopefully. My parents are out of town and won't be back until NEXT WEEK ( Posted Image ) and as you know, I live with Miko in an apartment away from them. I can open the box tonight with Miko, or wait until my parents come back and open it with all 3 pups next week. My parents don't mind either way, and Milabean & Baloopy will get whatever is for them this weekend if you choose for us to open tonight. Gerri, what do you want us to do? 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.

Even though everyone says open. I'm going to say "WAIT" sorry everyone. Their are specific gifts for each pup and I think it would be more fun for them all to get to open them together. We are all adults and can wait. Or at least I think so Posted Image

I'm so happy that the pups liked all the toys. I'm like Deb (alliesmom) I start picking up toys right after Christmas when they go on sale and buy all year. then when I get my name I get personal gifts. I never know how many toys I have till I pull them all out to start wrapping.. Posted Image I thought the mug was really neat, not sure if you were a coffee or tea drinker but hoped you were. I always do a frame for my SS. Have done so every year. It's my thing. Glad you liked everything. And that the dogs liked the dehydrated treats too. It was very fun being your SS. Merry Christmas to you and your family and the Iggies.

I drink tea every single night, Gerri. It was a perfect gift. :) When I started taking the toys out of the box, Baloo had to inspect them all first before anyone else got a chance to even look at them Posted Image Posted Image Miko is now wrapped up in his new blanket on my bed.
