All the Way From the Philippines!

I received a package in the mail from my friends Sweepy, Sumo and Bogart. They're also known as Hounds in Heaven and they live in the Philippines. I never realized the Philippines were so far away from me - nearly as far as Singapore! Sweepy lives approximately 8,500 mile or 13,700 kilometers from me. Wow!
Inside the package was this very artistic card that the hounds made for me.The letter explained that the pieces glued to the front of the card, with the exception of the slivers of shell, were from their personal collection.
Bogart's job is to guard the rocks and he takes his job very seriously!
First they spread out all the rocks and glass pieces onto the floor for closer inspection.
Sweepy went through the collection, viewing each piece one by one and chose his favorites.
Sumo chose the rock he wanted to send and carefully placed it on Sweepy's nose while he was sleeping!
Even though the shells were part of the card, we took them off and put them into the coffee table too. The shells, brightly colored glass and smooth and shiney rocks really added some pizzaz to the table! Thank you Hounds in Heaven for sending such great things!!

You're right. Those shells did add some color to the table. It looks pawsome!!

That was a good idea your Mom had. Collecting rocks and shells from all over the world was fun, huh??

Hi-ya Pedro! What beautiful shells-and from so, so far away!! They are experts at picking out good rocks! Mom is fascintated by the leafy lookin' shells. The table is coming along beautifully. My rocks should be arriving any day now. You will have to pardon the lack of surprises for all your furry family-I didn't realize until after I sent my package that there are more to your pack than you and Libby. My bad. Please share if you don't mind.

Woofs and bad slobbers,
Chester

Those really are great things for your table. My mom is amazed at how many participants there are in building your rock table! Who knew this idea would take off so well?

We'll pass through Utah,Nevada,Montana & Idaho on our way up to our cabin (leaving on the 14th)...that's a lot of rocky area!

Hi Pedro. Incredible stones and shells from Philippines! Very beautiful.

Sweepy said...

Woof Pedro!
I am glad our rock collection got to you! You should see the way the postmaster eyed the rocks. Methinks she wanted one too! Keeper said it was part of the card design otherwise she would charge us extra for it!

I am now thinking of what to share with you next. Hmmm, we are doing art sessions this weekend. I'll make you a mural if it is possible and if Keeper won't freak out.

Droolingly happy,
Sweepy
