Canadian Rocks

I got a package from my Boxer friend, Chef, this past weekend. Chef lives in Montreal, Canada. My mom went to the University of Vermont (back in the Dark Ages) in Burlington, Vermont. She says Burlington wasn't all that far from Montreal and one of the things they liked to do was drive in to Canada to buy beer. When I asked why she said something about Canadian beer having a higher alcohol content than American beer. This didn't sound good, so I changed the subject... Montreal isn't really all that far away from me - 326 miles or 525 kilometers (as the crow flies - it is actually 435 miles to drive).I wonder why it took 18 days for Chef's package to get to my house? Maybe it went by Pony Express? I think I do smell some ponies on here. Oh well, I'm just happy it did arrive!Chef searched in his own garden and found three awesome rocks to send me. He was so excited and tired from the hunt that he had to take a nap with the rocks before packaging them up for the long journey!When I opened the package there was this great card inside. Chef is that you? Besides being an award winning dawg, are you a model dawg too?
Libby read the post card and letter for me. Chef invited me to come visit him in Montreal! Too bad I don't have a passport since as of June 1st you have to have one of those to go to Canada from the US.Libby says I should go tomorrow before the passport rules take affect. I'm getting the feeling that Libby is trying to get rid of me!
The table is almost full! Thanks Chef for the perfect Canadian rocks!

That coffee table is coming along nicely. Canada does indeed rock, and my human pet also enjoyed crossing the border from time to time for some good beer. Great minds think alike!

Hallo

Pony express? perhaps snail express...
We would love to visit your country and Canada, too. But they're so big..., and very far from us.
Nice weekend.

Great rocks, Pedro. Sorry, but we can't view most of your pictures on your post today. Maybe blogger is acting up again.
Guess what? My mom got you some shells from Florida! She will bring them to your mom to give to you.
Hope you get lots of treats this weekend!

Hi Pedro,

You are filling that table up fast. You'll have to buy another so all the other doggies can send more rocks and shells to fill it. BOL

Wags & wiggles,

Chef said...

Pedro, the rocks FINALLY arrived! I can't believe how long it took. Can you imagine that our tax dollars are paying for a mail system that's so slow? We could have had those rocks at your house faster if we'd brought them over ourselves! Ack! Your table sure is looking fantastic!

We need to get you some rocks before that table is full.

The OP Pack said...

Pedro, it is really getting time for our Mom to get something done about our rock sharing. We are just going to have to do what Chef did and find some in our own yard.

Woos, the OP Pack

You are getting sooooo many rocks, Pedro! Too bad we can't get our lazy mom to package some up from us! I think we'll bite her until she does it!

Wow, your coffee table is looking great, Pedro! That was nice of Chef to send you those rocks! We never knew that about Canadian beer - dog blogging is very educational.

See ya!

Hi Pedro,

Wow those Canadian rocks are really pretty.
Too bad you need a passport to go there now. Though you should go get one so then you can come see me too.
