Representing 6 States!

Back before my mom went on her vacation, I received a package from my friends Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie with rocks for our coffee table. BRD and Hootie are like my friends Faya and Dyos, one is an Airedale Terrier and the other is a Welsh Terrier. Like a Me and a Mini Me (except not a Me Pedro cause, as you know, I am Chihuahua).Sometimes these dawgs live in Arizona and sometimes they live in Northern Idaho. A while back BRD and Hootie, along with their parents, left Arizona to go back to Northern Idaho. I think maybe they fly North in the summer and South in the winter, except I'm pretty sure they drive. All along the way they picked up rocks for me! Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. I'm not sure about the order but it sounds like a lot of driving! All of these places are very far from my house - 2,432 miles to Arizona, 1,857 to Colorado, 2,206 to Utah, 1,813 to Wyoming, 2,116 to Montana and 2,620 to Northern Idaho. Whew! By my mom's calculations, BRD and Hootie drove 1,144 miles between Arizona and Northern Idaho. They are true traveling dawgs!
The rocks came individually wrapped and labeled so we'd know exactly where each came from. So organized! We carefully unwrapped them and put them with their labels for a photo documentation of their origins.
Also in the box was this very interesting dawg toy. I had to check it out right away because it reminded me of someone I know. The yellow cat stuffie made me want to shake it and bite it and rip it apart! Hmm, I wonder why. Even Ziggy got in on the action and stole it away from me...

Oh, wait a minute. I see the resemblance now! This stuffed yellow cat looks strangely like my yellow cat Tommy. Tommy is an ok cat but he can be a bit of a bully! I guess I just need to take out my yellow cat frustrations on the stuffed cat. I think it's alot safer - no claws...
The rocks from the 6 states are now at home in our New York coffee table. Thanks so much Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie for taking the time on your long journey North to think of me! We will think of you every time we look at the coffee table and I will definitely think of you every time I beat up the yellow cat (the stuffed one that is)!

Great rock additions fur sure! And that cat toy is so cool. You and Ziggy sure had fun with that cat! Nice to see a pic of Tommy today too. He is very handsome.

Zeus said...

I think that's awesome how your friends collected rocks from all across the US for you. I like how they labeled them as well. It's like having a piece of different states with your coffee! ;)

GoldenSamantha said...

That table is looking just pawsome! Wow - rocks from six states, all labeled plus a cat toy (that was obviously so popular!) - cool package! Sorry it's been so long since I've visited - nice to see you again and check in!

Howdy Pedro! We enjoyed that video of you and Ziggy. BabyRocketDog always takes my toys from me too. I liked the way you stood there and watched over it once you got it back. Very menacing!! Tommy would look funny in a tutu...better get right on that. he he.

I don't ALWays take his toys. Sheesh, little brother! Glad you like the rocks. Hope that table doesn't colapse from the weight.

HI Pedro!
Those are some cool things you got in the mail! I have collected some wonderful rocks to send you but my lazy owner girl hasn't brought them to the post office yet. If they allowed dogs in the post office I would send them myself but I must wait for the lazy peoples.
