Ooh, A Big Parcel....And Where's Petey?

Remember this? Mason Dixie's contest to design a blog award? Well, this was one of our two entries, The High Five Club award featuring Snoop's furry cute paw....and it won! Thanks once again to those who voted for us and to Mason for running a cool contest :o)

So look what arrived this morning....

....a huge parcel of loot from Mason! Come on, let's see what's inside....

....an envelope to us from Mason Dixie, looks like she signed it with her own paws too, she's so thoughtful!

Inside the envelope a very cute picture of Mason....stop drooling Alf, you'll get it wet!

Literally millions of treats....WOW!! Stop drooling Gabbi, we'll open them soon!

Mmmm, sweet potato chips, Alaska Salmon bites, (love the Sibe packaging :D) some Goodlife chews and oh man....Pup-peroni! We got a little taster of everything....

First the Pup-peroni....oooh, so good!

Next, the Yummy Chummie fishy bites....

....they were so good we got two tastes :D

And then we each got a sweet potato chip to chew on....yummy....Gabbi drooled on Mum's sleeve, haha!

So what else is in the box? Well, we got these beautiful handmade glass magnets and pendants....and they've got us on them! The top two are magnets so we can put notes to Mum on the fridge, like "steak for tea please" or "remember to go to butcher"....special walkie requests....stuff like that.

The one at the bottom is a cool pendant with all of us on it and the two bluish coloured ones are special pendants, one with Alfie on it and the other with dear Mason Dixie on it....Alfie wore Mason's one on his collar for a while but Mum took it off before we went out incase he lost or broke it.

And the piƩce de resistance....a beautiful photo collage of Mason, she even put a snooter shot on, we love it! (We may have to laminate it for Alfie though.)

Thank you sweet Mason for all the wonderful gifts!


So, after all the excitement....Rosie settled down at the window....moping for Petey. Alfie tried to console her, but no.

Can we go and look for him Mum? He said he was going to the country....maybe he meant this country? Well, okay...but it's warm and sunny outside so i'll have to dress for the weather. Shorts? Check. T-shirt? Check. Shades? Check. Shadow? Yep! Right, let's go....

Oooh, tennis ball fuzz, this looks promising....

We seek him here....we seek him there....

We looked in the woods. See how we're doing our best AO4 walkin'?

We even asked the ants! (These anthills are all over the woods, they're like mini volcanoes and when the sun shines on them they erupt into busy life. Alfie likes to extinguish them!)

We scanned the beach.....nope, he's not here! Maybe he did a detour to Florida to pick Jake up....Gabbi lives in hope! Ooh, perhaps they're waiting for Mason to catch up....she said she'd try to swim to Alfie!

We looked in the sea incase he's trying to swim to Rosie.

We even scanned the skies for AireRuby....but all we saw were some geese....

....and the moon! (The trees provided a lovely natural frame but Mum's daft camera didn't pick it up well!)

Hmmph! No Petey. No Jake. No Mason. Dangsarn it!

Alfie gets frustrated when the girls are on leads, no-one to play with....

....he torments and taunts them with play bows and noise....

....and then loses his marbles!

The OP Pack said...

Mason Dixie really out did herself this time - look at all that loot. Which one of you was the Chief Box Investigator and who was your assistant - we are trying to sort you all out. That last video with the treat lineup was awesome - you are all so patient waiting your turn.

Great pics at the beach again.

Happy weekend.

Martha Basset said...

Great parcel guys - you have so many treats you will be able to hold your own doggie party!
Well done again on winning the competition.
We are sorry you didnt find Petey although you did look really hard.
He will be back soon. There seem to be so many romances in bud this spring among the DWB community!
Loving your pictures - you always have loads and loads!
The two bottom ones were partiularly funny.
Have a great weekend.

Brillant post - fantastic photos on the beach again and what lucky dogs you all are - receiving such a fantastic parcel from Mason.

Have a great weekend - enjoy all your treats.

Jake of Florida said...

Oooh, Gabbi, I repeat -- we are so jelly!!! We have an ocean just a few miles away -- but do we get to go in it, No!!! Lots of rules about dogs on beaches. And lots of sharks in some waters. And our mom is a worry wart.

Gabbi, your mom takes the bestest photos and videos. When she turned up the sound on your treat video, and I heard you all barking -- well, I ran from the other room and started barking myself. Did you hear me?????

I'm making reservations on Aire Ruby for us for Myrna's wedding. Shall I ask Asta's mom what she thinks you should wear???

Wirey love, my sweet!!


The Army of Four said...

WOW, what a post! LOVE the shot where you're walking like us. Ha roooo! And wow, wasn't Mason Dixie generous?!?! She's so sweet! Are Yummy Chummies the stinkiest, best thing EVER!??! I love those!
So... did you find that "da---- elusive Pimpernel"!?!? Mom's got that "verse" stuck in her head now! Ha roo roo roo!
I LOVE Alfie's play bows!!! He's my kind of guy!!!
I saw gooses, too. I wonder if they were the same ones?
Play bows!

LizzyBean said...

Wow, that was a great box of treats from Mason Dixie -- she IS very thoughtful! I think Alice might like to try some of those sweet potato chips, the beagles really looked like they were enjoying them; she's really into those duck strips! It looked like a sunny, warm, and beautiful day at beach & woods. Why were the girls on leads? What a really fun day!

Hi guys,
Wow this was a great post! First with all the great pics and vids of you all eating your yummy treats from Mason Dixie and then off for walks in the woods and the beach. You guys have the life! Mum said that lots of things in the videos reminded her of us - like the big begging eyes looking up for the snacks for instance!

Carolina said...

Well, that was a box of goodies! Yummy and lovely.
Great videos and beautiful photos. Love the collage with the headshake and ears flapping. LOL

Pamela, Kira and Scampi said...

Now, Snoop, it broke my heart to have to let you go, and the.....

"Waaaaaawahhhhh......sob sob sniff....aaaroooooroooroo....slam!"
from you, well......wooooooooooooooooooo

Now Kira has thrown herself into the bathroom, heart breaking, as she knows she is way to old for this darling little dear!

Ludo van puppy said...

What a shame you didn't find Petey. :( You all need an extra treat each to make up for it. What a great post it was, it had everything!! Great haul from Mason Dixie too.

Tell Gabbi not to feel bad. These things happen sometimes in love, so I is told. I'll keep looking out for Snoop. Who beed his mystery snog?
~lickies, Ludo

GoldenSamantha said...

Hi Beagles all! What a gorgeous pkg from Mason - Mason Dixie is such a precious pal and it looks like you all loved opening all the fab goodies! And the pix are all beautifully taken, as usual - love stopping by to gaze on them! Hope you're having a wild and wonderful Sunday and I wanted to add a big thankyou for the award! You are all too sweet - you pretty pups!
Huge huggies and Love xo

Stanislaw said...

You hit the jackpot! Mason is a generous pup!

We love those shaking photos.

Petey said...

My Sweetie Rosie-Pie!!!!

I'm back! I had a wonderful time but I kept looking for you - I was in the country, after all, and I thought perhaps it might be YOUR country, because there were trees and grass and all sorts of wonderful smells. And I had a spare tennis ball just in case I found you.

I'll post some photos very soon. There's even a movie so you can see me in action!

I was hoping your big parcel might be the one that I sent but that will just have to be your Easter treat!

Smothering you with countrified kisses,

Your Petey

Hero said...

Those were some amazing gifts! Pup-Peroni is my favorite as well! The little pendants were so cute. It was wise of your hoomans to take them off before your big adventure. You wouldn't want to lose such a precious gift. Sorry that you didn't find Petey, but it looks like you all still had an amazing day.

L.E.W. said...

What a great cool package you guys got. And love really seems to be in the air, but that how it is around spring time. Alih has always remained single (not that women hasn't chased him 'cause believe you me, they have ;). The only woman in his life is his mommy. :) James on the other hand is a player. He has one girl who's extra special to him, and thats Vilma. A very beautiful Kerry Blue Terrier.... but he says, he's not ready to settle down yet. He's too young. :)

Hope you had a great weekend! Happy Monday!

Stinkin' kisses from Sweden
