Royal Mail & Made in Taiwan!

I received two packages the other day from very different parts of the world. The first package was from my friend Bobby (aka Grumpy Bobby). I know I'm really special because his package is Royal Mail! Do you think that means Bobby is related to the Queen? Bobby lives in Sunderland, UK, which is 3,349 miles (5,390 kilometers) from me. Bobby holds the record for the longest ever Foster Dawg! I couldn't verify that claim in the Guiness Book of World Records but I'm taking his word for it. Personally, I think John and Brenda should adopt Bobby because he loves them so much and it's pretty obvious they love him too. I think if they permanently adopt Bobby his name will change from Grumpy Bobby to Happy Bobby! Would everybody please go visit Bobby's blog and support him in his quest for adoption by John and Brenda??? Now, the pebbles Bobby sent me are sooooo cool! They are round and all different colors, kind of like marbles. They're definitely unique. Bobby didn't send me any pictures but I took a couple from his blog. This picture shows him running around on the beach the day Ben the Rotti brought home his adopted sister Millie. Thanks so much for the great pebbles Bobby! They look terrific in the table.


The next package I received was from my friend Dino all the way from Taipei, Taiwan. This is by far the greatest distance a rock has traveled to be in my mom's coffee table! Dino lives 7,797 miles (12,549 kilometers) from me! Holy dawg poop that's far, far away! I've noticed on the international packages I've received that there is a little description sticker where the contents of the package are declared. I know some dawgs were concerned that they wouldn't be able to send rocks or shells through the post to me but it doesn't appear to be a problem! Dino is a good lookin golden retriever!He had a great time looking for rocks for me. The first few he found were a little big to send and definitely wouldn't have fit in the table!But then he found the perfect rock! Thank you Dino! I have the perfect spot for that perfect rock and we will think of you whenever we look at it!

Hi I am so pleased you like our stones, your coffee table will be absolutely unique. You will always have a talking point. You will know there is no other table in the whole world with stones from so many places, sent by so many friends. We are a very long way away.

Hi Pedro! That table is looking really fine and filling up with beach and river wares from everywhere(s)! GREAT finds! We'll be finishing up our contribution tomorrow --- finally!

And just wanted to tell you that the V-E-T didn't shave my neck - it may look like it, cause dogness knows, I seemed to have gotten shaved every place else (!) but that "line" is where my collar is.
Thanks for asking!
With Hugs and Love,

Zeus said...

That table is coming along. It's pretty impressive that you received royal rocks. I wouldn't have known if you hadn't told me that they were royalty. Does this exchange of royal rocks make you royalty now too, Pedro? Should I now bow to you?

Dino and Family said...

Oh Pedro! I am so happy that the rock I sent you has arrived safely and in one piece! Thank you so much for posting my photos on your blog! I am very honored! I will come back often to check on your coffee table project. You rock!!!! Love, Dino
