Adoption day presents early!

So, I got a box in the mail just now from Ruby because it's almost my adoption anniversary and my dad thought we should wait to open it until the 2nd, but my mom said no and I said hell no and I got to open it and I got LOTS of cool stuff including a personalized hand-knitted bandanna!
So this was my haul: one bag of delicious Newman's Own peanut butter treats (Ike's mom here - thanks Ruby for healthy treats and no junk food!), one red, squeaky Popsicle, one blue Wubba and best of all, my tough-guy cool-ass bandanna! Oh and she also sent me a really nice letter that I am going to keep forever and ever and ever and ever.
This is a picture of me trying to tell my parents to cut the damn tape!

And this is a picture of me and all of my awesome new stuff (and Odin trying stealing my treats)!

And this is a picture of Duncan trying to convince me to send him to Ruby because she has such good taste in presents but I didn't because he was too big for the box.

And I'm not really sure what's going on here.

princess sparkle only gets to eat the meaty parts off the outside, then the bones get thrown away. so I guess king sparkle is kinda mean too since he gives to her then TAKES AWAY!

Joe Stains said...

now to the important stuff, you look TOTALLY bad ass in that bandana

Balboa said...

OH WOW, how nice of Ruby. SHe's so sweet.

What great gifts. Even better what a great family. Speaking of family, I tagged you, check it out....
