Winter Solstice Swap

Our good friends at The PWD blog hosted a fun swap in honor of the Winter Solstice.  Our package arrived last weekend from the awesome team of Mango, Dexter and their staff.

Honestly, we would have been happy with just their card.  We’ve been begging for our own stationery for about a year now, but Mama isn’t cooperating.  Don’t they look like fun guys?!  Sis insists I may not swing about her head like that, as if…

December 2010 011They actually sent two chews, but this antler is now the prized chewing item in our house.  It’s been taken away from me (Gretchen) twice, because those who snarl and snap lose the object they’re guarding.  Hrmph.   I *AM* a terrier, after all! 

This is a wonderfully smooth antler.  Dadaw home-cured a couple for us, and has more “on order” from his hunting friends.  Ironically, time has shown that whatever Sis is allergic to in deer meat isn’t in the antlers, or the curing process fixes it…  Anyway, I don’t know if this is a slightly different variety of deer or whether they file or sand these antlers, but it’s a nice contrast to the bumps and ridges on the ones Dadaw gives us.

Mama got lots of pressies too.  She’s crazy about these fabric bags, but since there are three, I think the nice doggies and their owner meant for each of us to have one.  Sis and I inspected them, just in case we get to choose one.  For the record, I could sit comfortably in the big one.  Dadaw jokes often about putting me in his pocket and taking me along, and that big bag could make it a reality!

We’d like to thank our new friends for spoiling us so nicely.   We’re sitting here watching that cold, white stuff fall from the sky.  Mama’d best get home and shovel a path for me.  Sis doesn’t mind it, but I don’t get why Mama loves this snow stuff so!

Happy Dogs on Thursday and little friday to you!

    What a great package! Antlers are THE chew of choice in our house… whether it be elk, moose or deer.

    Mango must have read your bloggy and learned that you love those colorful bags! Their stationary is wonderful! Thor got an antler once. I think it lasted about 7 minutes.

    I love those bags!! My dogs can’t have antlers because of the expensive dental work. We have to be content with soft chews, but I’m sure they would love them. The swap packages are starting to arrive. There’s only one that I haven’t heard from and I sent a message out to make sure she’s OK.

    I am glad you liked your pressie. Yeah, those antlers ROCK!
