"Play safe: let sleeping dogs lie, and let lying dogs sleep."
-- Anonymous

Hi dear friends,

When I told the Mommy, my idea to do the Strings of Friendship feature, I told her I wanted to pick some new doggies we had never met before, expect for one. I already knew who I wanted for one of my "V" doggies. My "V" doggie was the doggie that got my name in the goodie exchange we had last year. I was so excited when my goodie package came on June 4th of last year. My package came with all this stuff in the box below.

Mine all Mine!!

My most favorite thing was the stuffie below. I think it was a kitty cat. All I know is I loved that poor stuffie for the longest time. Everywhere I went my stuffie went with me. It lasted for a long, long time and then one day it just exploded. I cried and cried but the Mommy let me keep the carcass and I still played with the carcass, until it got so dirty that the Mommy finally but it the washer. I still have it but it's just not the same.....all those good smells got washed out. The Mommy tried to find me a new one but she never could. Oh well. Other than my flea flea it was my favorite stuffie ever. OH WELL!!

I got so tuckered out playing with my stuffie, that I took a little nap lying in the sun the first day I got it. Notice how I was holding it with my paws!! Me and my kitty cat took lots of naps together.

Strings of friendship "V"

My Goodie box came for my first "V" doggie.

VELCRO the Australian Cattle dog from California

Velcro & Mom walk a whole lot....miles and miles on end. And then there is practicing sheep herding and traveling around too. I never get to go to work with my Mommy but Velcro does.
Velcro has a kitty cat sister, named Blossom and she travels too.

Velcro saying hi to Mom

Velcro has beautiful eyes.

How come Velcro gots snow---traveling I bet.

Velcro and Blossom on a road trip....looks like somebody is snoozing and somebody is keeping guard. Looks comfortable and in the front seat with Mom too!!

Since I already knew Velcro, we decided to find one we didn't know and we found this tiny little baby boy.

VODKA the miniature Schnauzer from Singapore

Vodka is just a baby. His hair is the same color, as mine used to be, black and silver. He is about the same size as my cousin Tippy, a miniature poodle. He looks like a very playful fella and I bet Tippy and Vodka would have a ball playing together and I'd like to join in too. I've posted pictures of Tippy before... but she has blond hair.

This ball is almost as big as Vodka is.

You can visit Vodka at: http://babyvodka.blogspot.com

The Mommy was gonna show pictures tonight of all the lucky Dachshunds that got adopted during January but said there were so many, she wouldn't have time to load them before 9pm.
Just what is happening at 9pm that she can't share the good news. Because at 9pm there is a new show that started last week that she just has to see. It's called Trust Me. Doesn't this woman know what her priority should be?
Live, kisses and (((huggies))) to all.......Mona
PS.....I sure hope we have the goodie exchange again this year.

Hi Mona,
I can see why you loved Kitty cos she is cute! I have a stuffie (Elmo) from my puupy days and he's lost his eyes and some of his limbs have gone through surgery cos they came off, BUT I love him still!
