The two shells on the top were so delicate and beautiful that I'm grateful they made it all the way (9,539 miles or 15,349 kilometers) in one piece! As you can see below, the rocks and shells were carefully packed up in the cute little box. Princess Snowball also sent two "Milk Spoon" treats. Ziggy and I each had one and they were unlike anything I've ever had before. Ziggy finished his right away but it took me a long time on mine. In fact, I got one end chewed off and then the whole thing vanished! Hmmmmm...... I'm thinking Ziggy stole it when I wasn't looking. I'm telling Mom!!!!!!!!!
I asked Snowball where she found such beautiful rocks and shells and she told me she set out on a quest.First she jumped into the sea and swam and swam and swam for a very long time. Until at last she spotted a picturesque beach that seemed like it might have hidden treasures waiting to be discovered! The name of this beautiful place is Changi Beach.So she made her way to the shore and collected the awesome shells and rocks to send half way around the world just to be in my table! I am so impressed with Snowball's long distance swimming abilities! She should definitely be in the next Pawlimpics! I definitely see GOLD medals in her future. Thank you, Princess Snowball for the spectacular rocks and shells and for the delicious, strangely disappearing, treats!

Here is a video of Faya looking for rocks at the lake where she lives.
As you can see in this picture, the box was full of all kinds of surprises (not only for me but for my mom too)!
The first thing my mom noticed was that Faya used corn starch peanuts. Those are the best kind of peanuts to use for packing boxes. If you've never tried it, put a cornstarch peanut in water and watch it melt away! Unlike traditional packing peanuts, cornstarch peanuts will be gone with the first good rain. Faya you are truely a Green Dawg!
Look at this cute stuffed dawg. According to Faya, this is a typical Swiss dawg - the Bernardiner. We call them St. Bernard's. I think it looks alot like me with it's bandit eyes! My mom said they carry alcohol in the cask around their neck to warm up cold skiers.
Inside this pretty little bag was a whole bunch of Swiss rocks for my mom's coffee table.
Whew! I am tired from all this excitement. I think I need to take a nap but first I need to put all the rocks in the table. Wow! They look great!
Thanks, Faya, for your additions to the table and for all the treats for me, Ziggy and my mom!!!
