The Snow Dog's Gift....

Some folks have a gift for gifting.....and some have that and a heart of gold to boot.  One of my favorite prim creators, Marie (fondly known as "Olde Lady Morgan") from Primitives by Olde Lady Morgan, is one those.....

A special gift arrived in the mail from her yesterday for the Snow Dog:



(He whips it from side to side so it hits him - and it's just a blur of black and white fur.....)



I never knew a dog could love a "thing" so much.....Wish I could show a video of him playing with it....oh my heck......
It hasn't left his sight....even when he went sleepy night:

....And he was still laying on it this morning.....

I thought I was an OLM addict fan....but I think, as of yesterday, the Snow Dog has me all beat in that regard....From the bottom of my heart, and the tip of the Snow Dog's fluffy tail, thank you Missy Marie!  ;o)

Happy Flag Day!

(Miss Libby is also an OLM original....Pinkeep in her lap was a gift from my dear friend Shirlee.)

OMG how sweet. My Lab had a huge furry toy that grunted. Bad enough to hear squeaks all day but that grunting was like an old man trying to get out of a chair! She took it everywhere. Oh how I miss those grunts. Looks like your sweetie is doing better and so happy with his new "buddy". Loved the pics.

My Rango has a pumpkin she plays with, that is almost worn smooth out LOL
Shelby has grown mellow and slow, she doesn't do anything but lay around and want her belly rubbed or her back scratched.
Hope Snow Dog is doing much better

What a sweet thing for Marie to do!! Snow Dog looks so pleased with his gift. I read your saga of the snakes...oh my...those look really big...we have snakes in the dry river bed at the end of my street...rattle snakes...they don't come up here normally...I don't go down there without Don any more either at this time of year...scary! Have a great day...hugs to Snow Dog!!

Hi Robin,
Your 'snow Dog' is behaving just like my snow dog 'Kody'...Yes Kody sleeps with it too and when he goes out side, he takes it with him and then back inside. I LOVE these dogs. So happy to see your wonderful boy doing so well. He is a beauty and reminds me so of my Kody.
Warm Regards,
Barb & Kody too
