"A dog wags it's tail with it's heart" --
Martin Buxbaum

Hi dear friends,

Look what came today for me!! I was sooo excited!! The mail lady brought it this morning and since the Mommy wasn't here she left it on the big patio chair on the patio. She waved at me through the patio door but I had to sit there all day waiting for the Mommy before I could get to it. Thank his DOGNESS the Mommy didn't have to work late today.

Look, the package says MONA c/o Sarah Ann Ricca.....mine all mine!!

As soon as The Mommy opened the patio door I ran to the patio chair and hoped right on it next to my package......Hurry Mommy, we gots to open my goody box!!

The contents when we opened the box.

All my goodies & a note from Velcro. Ya gotta blow it up to see the writing.

Me and my box with all my goodies. Can you believe she only let me play for an hour with my stuff then made me put everything back in the box cause she said had a surprise for me.

This is my very favorite stuffie. It squeaks so cute and it fits just perfect in my mouth as you will see in the little video the Mommy took. Look real close cause it might need some surgery in the morning but I promise to be gentle.

I played & played with my bestest stuffie friend after my dinner and my surprise, that I got very sleepy........

And then this happened.

Here is the video, the Mommy took after we opened my box.

And this was my surprise........a T-Bone bone with meat on it. Off course the Mommy had most of the meat off it but that's OK, I love to chew on the bone the best.

I want to thank Velcro for my goodies. They are the best ever.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, a thousand times Thank you!!!!
Just to let everybody know there has been an album setup where Chef and Mr T-Bone Beasley will copy everybody's goody post so we can see what goodies everybody has gotten. Just leave Chef or Beasley a comment to let them know when you have posted your goody post and they will take it from there. The website is to see everything is:
Gotta go get my stuffie and take it to bed with us so that's all for tonight.
Love ya all.......Mona & the Mommy too!!
