A box and a Mission

It came!! It came!! The big brown truck stopped at our house and gave us two packages! Some of the contents like the new clickers were more interesting for Momma than for us.

Normally, we wear chain collars when we're out on a walk but they have been damaging some of our coat so Momma ordered new limited-slip collars and matching leashes from White Pine Outfitters. These collars are suppose to be really good for long-furred or dual-coated pups. Since we are both, they should keep our neck fur long and lush. We'd post a picture but since you can't see collars on us, you wouldn't see anything different.

Some of the other items were much more exciting. There were dried anchovies and a backpack for Brice. He doesn't know it yet but there is also a new Wubba in there for him too. Momma is saving it for one of those rainy days where Brice is bouncing off walls and needs something to do.

Dried anchovies are really little but very tasty! I always take treats gently.

Brice is always ready to perform for his treats.

Brice is modeling his new backpack.
He's my new pack mule and has to carry my water when we go on walks.

It's going to be a big weekend for us. We're pupsitting Molly and Linus from down the street and Sunday is the one year anniversary of Tasha going to the Rainbow Bridge. We'll be making a special trip to Tasha's favorite dog park on Sunday morning to spread some of her ashes. Please give your pups an extra belly rub on Sunday morning in Tasha's honor.

Woof ya later,
Princess Eva

Where to start???


I do hope Brice The Handsome and Powerful shows The TH is SOOOOOO not what they've decided he is!

PeeEssWoo: Mom knew what Sunday is - oh how I would love to be there with all of woo!

The Thundering Herd said...

Natasha says of course Brice should carry your water, Eva. That is the way it should be. And we like White Pine as well!

I am sure Sunday will be a bitter sweet day, but a great time to remember the happy moments. We will be thinking of you.

Anchovies?!? Isn't that stinky fish? I'd LOVE that!!!
Speaking of love, Ammy nearly passed out when she saw how studly Brice looks in his backpack. That's great that he's going to carry stuff for you, Eva. As it should be!
Sweet Tasha! We will think of her on Sunday!
Tail wags,

You have been nominated for Photo of the Month - head on over to The Bone Zone and cast your vote :)



The OP Pack said...

Anchovies are supposed to be really tasty - hope you enjoy them. TD says to tell Bricey that he will LOVE the extra surprise Mom got him - he has a bunch of them and gets wild and crazy with them.

You and Tasha will be in our thoughts this weekend. We fully understand the loss you have felt.

Woos, the OP Pack

Brice looks most handsome in his new, blew backpack!
I have never tried anchovies but my Mom said they are on pizza sometimes and I would be willing to try that.
We will think of your sweet Tasha Sunday morning and hope she has met our dearest scottie, Otis, who could charm anyone he ever met. Thats what my Mom said!


Allison (Dog Mom) said...

The backpack looks great! Let us know how it works.

We (ie Misery) forgot Tasha's anniversary, and she hasn't been keeping up with my friends. Doesn't mean we think any less about the loss of such a sweet friend though. I'm giving her a special glare right now for being even more incompetent than usual.

Cool stuff! Steve had a similar problem with the chain collar and so we had to go to limited slip as well.

How does Brice like his backpack? When we got ours, Steve wouldn't even move. It was like he was paralyzed by the backpack! That is until Mom go the treats out.

We are playing catch up.. LOVE the backpack! And loved the photos in more recent posts of you both wearing them :)
