We've Got Puppies

I had another post scheduled for today, but it can wait.  I received something special this week, and am excited and want to share it with you all!

This beautiful, hand-knitted, stack of pups was sent to me by Sue from The Portuguese Water Blog.  She sent them to me in celebration of Marge's big 2010, where we accomplished a lot of great things.



There is some backstory, here.  I thought that Sue was sending me a simple Christmas card.  However, it never arrived.  So, I asked Sue about it, and she told me that she did, indeed, send a package.

But, before I alerted her to the fact that I hadn't received anything, poor Sue probably thought that I had received it, but made no mention of it to her (which I would have never done - how incredibly rude that would have been!).

Anyway, long story short, the mystery package finally got here, somehow, after several weeks.  In the box was a nice card and a cute disc toy for Marge (which she will sample when the snow melts), along with my personal favorite item, the hand-made pups.  I think they are absolutely adorable, pudgy little guys!  And they are SO soft.

Marge was interested in them, too.  She thought that they were for playing.  She promptly knocked the poor guys over.


They're too special for her to put her grubby mouth all over, though, so they're safe and sound, high up where she can't reach them, on display (see the first photo).  Of course, I did pose her just once with them before moving them to their new home:


Thank you so very much, Sue, for your thoughtful gift.  It's so nice to have such a caring (and talented) friend.. and proof that blogs can far transcend the pictures and posts.

I'd better go sneak in a snuggle with those pups now.. it sure is cold here in NY.

What a thoughtful gift that Sue gave to Marge and I love the fact that Marge looks like she's sitting on top of the threesome in the last picture! Sue is a very thoughtful person and her blog is very sweet as well. We are lucky to have her in our world and we are lucky to have you in it too!

These are so so adorable. What a thoughtful gift!! I am so glad you finally received them. Poor Marge looks very sad at not being able to chew them to bits. :-)

It is true. Blogs are far, far more than posts and photos. The people I have met online have been an amazingly supportive foundation.

Yay for puppies!

Sue January 26, 2011 at 8:41 PM  

I'm so glad they finally arrived. Just remember that you have friends who appreciate and support you. When you're going into the ring and the nerves start acting up, remember that we're all with you.

That is wonderful! Those pups are so cute. Sue is right - you and Marge made huge strides in 2010. How very nice of her celebrate it that way!

What a wonderfully thoughtful gift - I'd love to be talented enough to make goodies like those. I think stuffies must be hard to make...

Such a nice "thank you" post!

Those are adorable!!! Did Sue make them??? I don't blame you for cuddling up with them in the cold we're hearing about back there! You DID have a huge 2010 - and it's wonderful to make a different sort of connection with blog pals besides pix and type! You're absolutely right!
