Never Too Late To Give Thanks

Hey all yous out there in Blog-land... It's me, Oakley. How's everyone doing? I hope you guys are all well. My brother and I are doing great. Hope everybody had a wonderful holiday. We sure are stuffed from all those Thanksgiving leftovers.

Mom recently had an interesting trip out to one of our local pharmacy stores and left with quite the deal. We thought it was blog worthy to share with you. Mom has been on a mission to find us Sock Monkeys. Not that we don't already have enough toys (as you'll see later..), but who doesn't love a good Sock Monkey? Mom just happened to be inside the store, not meaning to seek out Sock Monkeys, but she did. No price was shown. She walked up to register, thought if they weren't too much, she'd buy us two. One for me, one for my brother. Cashier priced check it, rang up as 0.49cents. (No they were not on sale) '0.49 cents?!' Mom thought, no way! SOLD! So she got two. Thought the price was odd, but who cares? Great deal! Left the store. Should she go back? Should she just clear them of their entire stock? I mean, they're only 0.49cents! Oh alright. She goes back. Clears them out. Every last one. Later in her day, still baffled by the inexpensive toy, walks into the same store at a different location. Finds dog toys. Asks for price check. Rings up as $4.99! Ahhhh. THAT'S more like it. Mispriced just as she thought. Oh well. Good times for us! Look at what we got!!!


All kinds of them!

We were so excited, we got to work right away!

Hey gimme that back!

Dear Almighty DOG in Dog Heaven,
Thank you for this gift that I'm about to receive.
I am truly Blessed.

Ok so we're a little spoiled, but we're not selfish. Even though we loved all those Sock Monkeys, we knew the right thing was to share our good fortune with others. After all, it is a time of giving thanks. So we mailed some to my step dog-sister and step dog-mom (Swisher's birth family that lives with our Grandma), and a few others to some of our neighbors dogs.

There are many things we are grateful for this holiday aside from our family, friends and fur-iends. We're grateful for the little things too.

1.Like our toys and stuffies.

What? No I didn't empty the toy crate.

2. Mom's bed.

You can't see me.

3. Matching Pj's.

Even though we feel silly in them...

...they keep our tails warm at night.

4. The couch alllll to our selves.

5. And last but NOT least... the heater!

Mom says when the house starts to smell like bacon,
it's time to turn it off. Bol.

We know Thanksgiving has passed already, but it's never too late to give thanks right? So we wanted to say Thank You, from the botton of our lil' hearts, to all of you, thanks for being our blog fur-iends. We wuff you all.

Lots of Licks,
Oakley and Swisher
