A Package Much Bigger Than a Jelly Bean!

Guess what? I got a package from my good friend Deetz and his mum, and look how big the box was! It was much bigger than a Jelly Bean! It had stuff in it called peanuts. At first I was scared of them, but then I tried to eat them. After all, they are called peanuts....aren't they?

After my post about my friend the Toad, in my Big World blog, Deetz and his mum told me they had a Toad House that they wanted to send me. I was super excited! I will show you some of the preparations Deetz did when packing up the Toad House.

Deetz gave the Toad House a good sniff and a good luck kiss that it would house lots of Toads for me. Little Gizmo, Deetz's little bro, got in on the action too!

When Deetz was certain that the Toad House was packed properly, he told him mum it was time to go to the UPS store.

Who knew Deetz was such a good driver? Looks how focused he is, checking his rear view mirrors and all! The package was mailed safely, thanks to Deetz's care and attention!

~~~~And now back to my house, where I became SUPER excited, because I don't get packages often!~~~~

After realizing that the peanuts were not for eating, I got the stuff in the package out. Look at how neat this house is! It even says "Toad House" on the front of it, so the Toads know where they are supposed to live!

Deetz and his mum also sent us some housewarming gifts like a birdhouse for all my birdie friends and also a calendar with pictures of Cat and Dog Buddies in it! That is just like me and Deetz are, buddies! We will find the perfect spot for the birdhouse near our bird feeder, and I will hang the calendar where I eat my breakfast, so I always know what day it is!

There were also some great sniffing feathers.......and you know how I LOVE feathers!

Feathers are great for playing "Attack!"

I always win the feather attack game when my mom plays it with me. I am very quick and agile!

Deetz! These feathers are really swell! Thanks for the super package!

Deetz did not forget about PooPoo either! PooPoo got a special pink catnip present "For cats with an attitude"! PooPoo was very happy with her present, and she thanks you too, Deetz!

(If you are wondering where Misty is, she gets scared of toys, so she did not come and play.....silly Misty!)

~~~~On a sadder note~~~~

Deetz's little bro (little in size, not in years or wisdom), Gizmo's health has gotten much worse. His mum has been asking Gizmo if he needs help getting to the Bridge, and for him to please help her to know if it is time. This is a very sad time for Deetz and his family. Please click here to go give them some love and support.

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my BIG WORLD too, thanks!

I loved all those photo's of you and poopoo and opening your pressies. I sure hope the toads like there new home. Great big kisses and paw hugs, my lil kitty friend...for mentioning Gizmo and letting all my other friends know. So many ask about Gizmo because he has become a part of everyone's family and mum has been unable to talk about it, right now anywaz. I love you, JB.

That was a fun package! Something for everyone, including toads.

It is sad about Gizmo. 17 years is a long life but never long enough when you're loved.

Man , that box was bigger than u!! Such cool stuff!!
Poor little Gizmo. I always wished for the gift of them leaving on their own, without my help. I got it a time or 2. I hope Gizmo can give that gift, but dang, chihuahuas seem to always need help to the bridge. :(
pee ess guess we'll get a bit of rain and gusty wind,hu? we're just starting to get a little wind

the 4 Bs said...

hi JB, that's an extreme package with all of those wonderful pressies for you and your family! that Deetzy Boy is such a thoughtful friend.

we're sad about Gizmo too. we hope that he can tell his mom when/if he needs help to go to the Bridge. humans can't stand to see us dogs be sick and they can't stand to part with us either. we know it's difficult for Deetz and his mom. we're holding them close in our thoughts and prayers right now.


Rambo said...

Wow JB!!
You got a box full of presents! How neat is that?? Hope you have fun with everything. Deetz is a nice guy. We are sorry to hear about Gizmo. We'll say some doggie prayers.

Lorianna said...

Hi JB! Your friend Deetz is so nice. what a cute little house for your toad friends and the other pressies are great too. Even one for PooPoo! She's so pretty in her lounge.
I'm so sorry for Gizmo. He's adorable and his family will be heartbroken when he decides to go to the Bridge. I will keep them in my thoughts. I wish we didn't ever have to say goodbye...
Is Ike affecting you? I'm not sure where in Texas you are, but I have been worrying about you.
Take care okay?
Hugs and Smoochies,

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

That toad house looks really cool. We have lots of toads in our backyard since it has been raining. Of course Mom and Dad try and keep us away. Louie likes to bite them and then starts foaming at the mouth..

Hey JB!

That is an awesome gift! I never knew that Toad Houses even existed!

And thank you for letting us know about Gizmo, as no animal deserves to feel pain (even if it's natural). We'll purr/ay for him.
