We got our package today. Our SS was PerformanceDog. She put together a most stellar package for the Curly Tails.

I posted the pictures of them opening their box on my blog as when I try to post pictures here though photobucket the results are gigantic pictures...

So click the link to see the party: Secret Santa Party

Thank you so much Mikaela! You did awesome shopping for my guys :)

Yay! I am glad you guys liked it! I wasn't sure what kind of work to eat toys you had.. so I got you a bunch!

I am glad I got the Bison Jerky correct! It's the only bison jerky I could find!

I am also happy the moose was a big hit! It was so adorable! I had to get it.. and christmas themed! And the green balls matched the whole Christmas theme for Watson that likes squishy balls! Not sure if they are soft enough for his liking though!

But yay! Thank you for taking all those pictures!

Also, for a minute I was mystified and wondering how you knew it was from me, since I forgot to put in a card. Then I looked at the photos and saw that I put my name on the box!

Also, I don't remember your name also being Michaela (though spelled differently) from when I met you at the Chaz meetup? Did you tell me (I have the worst memory)? I think of you as your facebook name!

I might have introduced myself as Misha, which is what all my friends and family call me. Which of course is also what I use on FB.

Menchi has actually been the one to go crazy about the balls this time because these are really bouncy. She was running around with the squishier one of the two in her mouth, bouncing it and then catching it again last night.

The moose is losing his beard... they are plucking the poor guy bald :D

I'm so glad everything got there ok! He looks very handsome in his collar, and I hope you all enjoyed the edible goodies. I had a lot of fun shopping for you guys, and thanks for the photos!

ETA: Just wanted to add that he has the cutest little corgi face ever- reminds me a lot of Fable's.

Hudson says, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! to Paige & Finn Terri says, I really hope Hudson stops running through the house with one of those bully sticks. They don't fit through the door.

I come home, and I was expecting 2 boxes from Amazon. I was not expecting two Amazon boxes and a Chewy Box. I looked at the box for a little while, trying to figure out if I hard ordered something from Chewy, all while being very concerned because Chewy orders normally deliver 2 days after ordering and I didn't think my memory was THAT bad. Then I looked a little closer, "UPS store in MS. That's not Chewy." Slowly it dawned on me, SS time!!



opened the box and the first thing I saw as the bag of Jolly Ranchers. Now, this may not seem like a big thing to many people, but I had JUST gotten back from the store, where I had forgotten to buy Jolly Ranchers. I've been wanting a hard candy to keep at my desk, so this is already in my work bag. Sorry Ben.


Next I opened what I am now calling "Jake the Truth Snake" a snake that I think is bigger than my dog and full of squeakers. This is staying in hiding until Christmas, sorry dog.

Up next, the worlds longest bully sticks. They are as long as my dog from nose to tail. Of course, he does have a short tail so....He tried to run from the kitchen into the living room with his bullystick, it ended in hilarity because the bullystick doesn't fit through the door way


Next was a bee collar & bow tie. That immediately went on. Sooo awesome!


Next is a West Paw Bumi. Hudson stopped playing with the wrapping paper to come play with this toy. He loves it.


Last was a Chuck It frisbee, squirrel, thing. This will be fun outside, if it ever becomes light out again.

We received our gifts today! Thank you soooo much Ken & Ashley, Crossbone & Smallpox!
I posted pictures on Facebook, I'll see if I can share them here but I'm only on my phone because SOMEONE *coughBailey*cough* chewed my laptop charger cord :(

Maddie has been through several Chaz secret Santas before so I could hardly keep her out of the box! lol. She immediately went for the treats and the hooves, they took turns stealing them from each other for the rest of the night haha.

When I opened the gift that was NOT for the dogs ;) I cried. With Maddie getting older the portrait just meant a lot to me. It's so cute! And perfect! And I love it!


Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Oh, and the email I got from UPS I thought it was a scam so I ignored it LOL!!! I wasn't expecting this today at all :p

We received our SS gift in the mail yesterday! Thank you so so much to Cynthia and Morgan for everything- it was great to come home to such a wonderful and thoughtful package.

Fable has a lot to learn about present opening since she's never done it before last night, but she really got into it once she figured out that there was food inside.

She got pretty annoyed when I made her wait to dig in

But I let her have one of the chews after a few photos.

And she tried to run away with another one before I could unwrap it

Human presents:

And here's the whole thing!

Fable ended up with 2 squishy balls, a bag of treats, 3 Morgan Collars, and 3 beef chews. And I got stickers and lip balms from Allie Pets and a cute t-shirt. Thanks again for everything- Fable and I both loved all of it!

Yayyy! I'm glad it got there all safely! And I'm glad you like it all. I had a bunch of fun putting that together. I know the t-shirt was a little goofy, but I saw it shortly after signing up for SS and I was just like I DON'T CARE WHO IT IS I'M GETTING MY SECRET SANTA PERSON THIS SHIRT. :p

Merry Christmas!

Our turn!

Our packaged arrived from LostAndConfused earlier this week. (PS: I am so so so sorry it took me so long to update here about it. I have been so crazy busy it's not even funny.)


ANYHOO. PICTURES.

"Is it for meeeee?"


"Definitely thinking these are for me."


"Halp plz."


Momdog to the rescue!


He very much wanted to help unwrap the presents. And by help I mean watch me do it REALLY REALLY CLOSELY.


And then Ticheli got all up in our business, as is his way.


"Want. Treats."


AWKWARD PRESENT POSE. (Sorry it's kinda lousy. I've learned over the years that trying to stage it all just makes Morgan nervous about it, so I was trying to go for the quick-shoot-the-pic!! method.)


Finally, a chewing dog is a happy dog. <3




Total loot: one box of organic peanut butter biscuits, one squeaky purple ball (which my kids keep stealing), a fluffy white squeaky stuffy, a big ChuckIt kick-fetch ball, a Kong tennis ball toy (the squeaker has an off switch!!!), and an antler for chewing! Plus, there were some cute little decorative stockings for me with really nice handmade soaps and lip balm.

THANK YOU, TERRI!! :) We love it all!
