Surprises and Thank You's!

This past week we have received a few surprises in the mail.  Each one has brought tears to my eyes as I just  get overwhelmed at how genuinely thoughtful and caring people are.  Our first surprise came from our extended hound family at Autumn Blaze Bassets.


Becki donated half of the sale of her last puppy from her last litter to the Freddie Fund! (The puppy flew to sunny California to his new forever home.) She would not take no for an answer and said it could help with Freddie's meds.  It will help out immensely and we can't thank her enough for her thoughtfulness!

Then we got a surprise all the way from Nebraska from Gracie, Schatzie and their Momma, Val over at My Girlz Got Paws!


We were so touched by their donation that came with a cute little card and a thoughtful note with a great reminder.


Now there was one condition. If you noticed on the envelope it said , ATTENTION: Gloria.  That's because they figured since Gloria is the serious one, she should handle the funds.  Great idea Val! After all we don't want Freddie squandering it! 


So Gloria dutifully put the money into the Freddie Fund jar (just ignore the cheese stuck to it, I had to do something to get her to touch it!) and  now it's official.
  

 Gloria will be treasurer!


"Go ahead. I don't give a rat's a@*!"

Fred obviously is milking this whole hip thing to no end.

Then our mailman brought a parcel for me from Utah! It was from our good friends Goose and his Momma Michelle over at Gospel of Goose.  Fred and Gloria were quite curious so I let them help me with it.


 "I think I smell a Goose!"


They had lots of fun with the paper.  Even Gloria got right into it.


"What is it Freddie?"
"Duh, I don't know Gloria. It looks like some kind of bowl or something."

Nope!  It is the most wonderful wine holder I have ever seen!  I just can't believe that Goose's Momma parted with this for me. Look at the card, it's a Zentangle by Reilly's Momma at Cowspotdog that has Goose on it!


You can see the wine holder in Goose's taco post if you go here and in his Potential Mischief post here. But here is the very first time I saw it on their blog and fell in love with it and the way Goose is looking at it is priceless!  It does look like Freddie! I think I have commented on how much I love it every time I see it in one of their posts and I can't believe they remembered!! How sweet is that!  Thank you so much Michelle and Goose I will always cherish it!

We thank all of you from the bottom of our hearts!!


This was the best picture hubby could get of the three of us! lol

  1. We are soooooo happy that you got it AND it is in one piece. It was a funny story trying to get it to you. In short never tell the postal worker that it is a wine holder. I think all she heard was "wine" and proceeded to tell me it is against the law to ship alcohol in Utah. MOM kept saying, "No it holds the alcohol. This went on for 20 minutes. Finally my MOM left with the package and went to a different post office and when ask what it was she said "a bowl". Which came the reply "what kind?". hahhaha So again we are thrilled it actually made it to you. Seeing ya all's happy faces makes our day. Nose pokes to all of you.
    Blessings,
    Goose

  31. How fun! I think it is a stroke of genius to make Gloria the treasurer. She will make sure Freddie gets the most out of his fund. Wine for you, cheese for Gloria and Freddie can have the paper from the box.

  45. Hey Fred, Hey Gloria, Jet here. Hi Miss Janet.

    We here at Casa Jet believe that you receive the energy you put out. Miss Janet, you are so kind, thoughtful, caring etc... so, like a boomerang, you deserve the exact same right back. These three examples serve as a reflection of you.

    Gloria will definitely make a solid, trust worthy treasurer. :)
