On Saturday a big box arrived for me, only the human woman had gone out of town to Kansas City for the weekend with her friends, and dad decided to let it sit and wait for mom to get home!!! I kept seeing it sitting on the counter, and knew if was for me, and I was getting very upset that I couldn't open it!

Then, mom finally came home on Sunday afternoon, and she was very excited to see the box too! So, we tore it open. Here is nosey boy Samuel with his face stuck in the box. Those are my feet you see on the right side.
As you can tell by the extremely happy look on my face, there were some GREAT presents in the box!
There was a great magnet for the magic cold box that said "Bad to the Bone" and a cool Husky/Malamute pin which mom is going to put on her jacket. And, do you see the red thing? That's a mini hanging quilt with my sweet, adorable, darling Dave's eyes! And, it has a saying on it, "Ask not at whom the Siberian stares....The Sibe stares at you!" Mom hung it on the light dimmer knob which is on the wall right by the corner of my couch were I sleep. I can can now look up and see those be-woooo-tiful blue eyes looking down on me any time I want!

In addition to all those presents, there was a little package with something verrrrrry interesting in it. Can you see what it is?

That's Dave's fur!! And, it included a personalized note from him too!
Dave's mom even included a great present for my mom! Some cool earrings with pretty blue beads and a doggie bone hanging off them, and a be-wooo-tiful beaded bracelet to match! She loved them so much she immediately put them on and said she would wear them every day!

Finally, here is the main reason for the other really cool presents. It all started with an e-bay auction to help MaPaw Siberian Husky Rescue raise money for some rescued Sibes that needed medical attention. As soon as I saw the be-woo-tiful quilt and matching pillow, I just knew I had to have matter what the cost. Good thing the mom doesn't care if I steal her plastic to buy things!!!

So here are some pictures of me enjoying my new gorgeous quilt and matching pillow. Don't you just love it?

I sure do!!! You can see how comfy and relaxed I look.

Thank woo sooooooo much to my sweet, adorable Davy, and the rest of the Ao4, and especially to their human woman for such wonderful gifts, and the be-wooooo-tiful quilt and pillow. I absolutely love everything!!!!

(having sweet dreams tonight)

Awwwww, how cool! Now you have a picture of your sweetheart! Woowooo!

I like to stick my head in boxes and bags too...must be a Husky thing.

Princess Eva and Brice said...

Good Golly Miss Holly, what a haul!! All that stuff is just super! Looks like you really enjoy all those great things. Your human woman is so special for buying you the quilt and pillow. And Dave's mom too, for the earings and bracelet! And who can forget the Dave fur!! How special is that?!?! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.
P.S. The reason for no leaves on the trees in our Few Words Friday post is that picture was taken early last April. We'll get pictures of what the park looks like now and post them soon!

You look so comfy - hey and it even sets off your colouring too. And for an excellent cause too.


Peanut said...

Look at all that stuff. Great box you got there.

Holly, I should have known it was you running up the price of the quilt and pillow! ha rooo!! Those are awesome little gifts that Dave's mom tossed into the box for you!!! You are one lucky Mal!

Woooooo, Hollybollyboo! Did you like the sniffie bag best?!?! I took a brushing just for you!
My mom and I are really, really glad you like all the things! And we thought since you ... borrowed your mom's credit card, we'd buy you some good will with the bracelet and earrings! Woo.
Your post made me and Mom very happy! I hope she'll make me a comfy pillow like that one ...

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Wow, those look like great presents! You really need to post instructions on how to steal your mom's plastic. I would like a new bed that Steve didn't pee on as a puppy (I don't care if it's been in the washing maching, it's still icky), so I need some money. I know where Mom keeps her purse, so maybe if you gave me some hints, I could order a lovely new bed.


Marley said...

Wow, Holly, what awesome stuff! My mom loves the quilt that the AO4's Mom made for the auction...and you look absolutely beautiful laying on it!
I got a hold of my Mom's plastic, but all I thought I had to do was eat it, and then I could get whatever I'd want. Apparently, that was not true, and Mom was MAD!
Maybe when you tell Kat how to use it, you can fill me in as well?

I'm so glad you all like my presents. I sure love them LOTS!

Sitka - was that YOU I was was bidding against? Sorry to disappoint you. Once I saw it, I was dead set on having it, and once I make up my mind about wanting something, I GET it! I guess I'm lucky my human woman is willing to spend her money on us (what with vet bills and food bills, and treat bills and all) and doesn't mind spending all that money for a good cause!! She likes being able to help the rescues with their fund raisers, so this was my chance to REALLY pitch in!

S&K and Marley - the trick is to grab the plastic out her your humans purse/wallet and then hide it somewhere they usually don't look. Then, when they are sleeping, or out of the house, get on the computer and buy, buy, buy!! NEVER look at the price, just look at the thing you want and say to yourself, "I want that, so I'm going to buy it" and then just DO IT! That's what I do!

Dave, mom did put some of your fur on the pillow for me. That's why I have such a contented dreamy look on my face!!!


The Daily Echo said...

Oh Holly....that's the beautifulest quilt I've ever seen! I have to find my Mom's plastic cards to see if I can trade one for something cool like that. Who knew that's what they were for! And all those other presents that came in the box were great too. What a great guy that Dave is!
Thank woo everyone for helping out my buddies Dawkin and Jasper.

You are a lucky Mal to get so many gifts from your love. I just knew you would get the quilt and pillow.

Hope said...

Hi Holly! your blog site is very cool. I especially love your new quilt & pillow. I wish my mom would get me one... but then Sammy would probably steal it and use it himself! Oh, you are sooo fluffy and soft looking, do you let your mom brush you? and do you use an special shampoo to keep your fur looking so marvelous?
