Early Christmas Pressies!

When my dog walker Jan arrived today she had gifts for me, from she and Sue and her partner who owns the walking business. Jan is a retired postal carrier and she makes extra treat money by walking a couple of dogs each day.  I just love her, she is so friendly and always has treats for me and talks to me on our walk. Sue is sweet too; when Mom and Dad both fly out to check on Mom's Dad and fix things on his house I stay with Sue and her husband and their rescue Lab in their comfy home with a HUGE fenced yard.  They let me sleep on the couch and it's just like being home! Mom promised never to "board" me after the scary high kill shelter and she's done good.
What's in the bag?   Pressies!  The beautiful canine cookies are from Sue and her business partner but there's a wrapped gift from Jan that she told Mom to open when she left as I won't see her next week as Dad has the week off.
 OH  Love the card!
 What is it Mom?   Mom said: "Jan did a 3-D painted collage of you Abby"
I love it Mom!

It can hang on the wall - isn't that amazing and clever and it looks just like me!

We have the best fur-ends.  Thank you, Sue and especially Jan - my favorite walker ever!

    1. Mom does to. We're not sure what I'm "mixed" with but I don't have exactly a lab face. I think my smoochie face looks JUST right!

  2. What a very nice person!!! We need a dog walker like that here too - Mom won't walk when it is this cold or when then is ice or snow on the ground. Bah humbug!

    1. They are sure nice to have. Mom just can't deal with me pulling on the meniscus free knee as it's bone on bone on there at certain angles. So Dad does all the walking and Mom has Jan and Sue when he's gone but she'll play fetch with me in the yard as long as I want.

    1. Much better than that 80's "Glamour Shot " picture Dad found in Mom's closet and about busted a but laughing. She has BIG hair, not just poofy hair, but "Hot Air Balloon Hair".
