Khyra's Rokhs

A box arrived a while back from York, Pennsylvania from my friend Khyra! Khyra is such a beautiful girl and a good friend to so many of us. I was so excited to open this box that I actually stopped de-tailing the zebra Suzuki sent me! York is about 262 miles from my house and my mom passes by it on her way to/from West Virginia when she goes to Leah's college.
Inside was a letter from Khyra explaining that it took her assistant a long time to get the package to me. Um, Khyra, it took my assistant a LONG time to help me write this post! She kept complaining about her broken tooth and something called a roots canal. Sounds like a bunch of lame excuses to me!
Finally the box is open! I see some delicious treats in there for me and Ziggy and Libby too!
Bully Sticks for me and Zig! Libby LOVES Temptations! She's been spoiled by so many dawgs and cats during this coffee table project that she's usually the first one to inspect the packages when they arrive. She's also the first one by the treat basket when my mom leaves for work! She figured out that mom gives us treats when she leaves and she wanted in on the action.
Khyra sent us a "furry" special letter that only Ziggy and I could read. In our letter she told the story of her rock hunting expedition. She and her mom jumped into the Xterra and headed to Samuel S. Lewis State Park. Samuel S. Lewis State Park was named to honor the Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Forest and Waters from 1951-1954. Samuel S. Lewis donated 35 acres of his farm to the Commonwealth in 1954. Lewis convinced Walter Stine to sell his arboretum to the Commonwealth for a reasonable price. The Commonwealth then purchased an additional 35 acres of the adjacent Almoney Farm to complete the initial park tract. The park opened to the public on July 4, 1954. The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources purchased an additional 14 acres of land in 1999. It looks like a great place to run around and explore and, of course, find rocks! Here is a movie of the day Khyra and her mom set out in search of rocks.


Khyra is definitely KHWEEN of the ROKHS!
Besides the Pennsylvania rocks, Khyra's mom added a couple of shells from her own collection - a little white spirally snail shell and a spotted clam shell. Can you imagine a snail walking around with that tall, skinny corkscrew shell house?
All the rocks and shells from Khyra fit neatly into the corner of the coffee table. Thank you so much Khyra (and your mom too of course!) for going to the park and finding such great rocks for the table!
Here is one final picture of Khyra hunting for rocks. Can you see her fluffy tail??

Sticks and stones will - oh wait, wrong song. Those are really nice rocks from Khyra. We remember when she went to visit that park with her Mom. And the bully sticks were just such a nice added touch. Table is really looking great.

Woos, the OP Pack

My human pet says that everything from Pennsylvania is better, including rocks! I don't know if that's true or not, but she's kind of biased, being that she's from Pittsburgh.

JB's Big World said...

Khyra did a great job! I think it is funny how Libby is catching on to all the action and all the treats!
You go, Libby! hee hee

Finally! Somebody that also has this trouble with their "assistant." My sister and I are always trying to post on our blog and mom, I mean our assistant, is always "working." Please!

Rambo said...

Yeh! Me too. My personal assistant has been slacking big time and there's not a darn thing I can do about it.
The story about Khyra and her rocks was great. The table is looking more pawsome every day.
love,
cousin Rambo

Chester's Mom said...

I think everybody's assistant is busy these days. But thank goodness it is getting them outside more so they are losing some of that nasty human smell.

I thought I saw you waving on Friday but wasn't sure. Now that I know what you look like, I will wave back.

Have a safe trip!
Woofs and trippin' slobbers,
Chester

This is so cool! We honestly found some rocks, and just need to stick them in the mail for you. We should also go back to the scene of the crime to take some pictures.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

lots of nice treats don't hurt either..
