Toy Story

Our girl was very tricky with that big box of toys. She decided that we needed a lot of toys for our Christmas card this year, and then made us pose with all the toys. She won't let us spoil the "surprise" of the card by posting it here yet.
(disclaimer: no stuffies were injured or killed while making our card)

Now that are cards are printed (and she got them in the mail today so we don't need to take new pictures) were are going to give the toys to the homeless dogs at the Arizona Humane Society.

She bought 144 toys! That's almost enough for one toy for each family in the Dogs with Blogs holiday card exchange (sorry, we're one short).

We are donating these rope toys on behalf of all of our friends in Asia and Australia!

These tennis balls and stuffed bones are for our friends in the US.

These are for our friends in Europe.
BLU couldn't resist licking these toys for our friends in Canada, Mexico, and Central America.
These toys are for all of our friends who wanted e-cards only.
(Our girl was too lazy to figure out where they all lived.)

That's it!
No more toys.
Comet double checked to make sure all 144 of them were in the box.

Our girl is going to deliver them next week, so the shelter dogs will have them in time for Thanksgiving and Christmas. This is our little way of returning the friendship and kindness that the DWB community has given us. We hope all the dogs in shelters will find this kind of love and happiness!
ps. Do you know how hard it was for us to not destroy any of the toys?! Oh, the temptation!

Hi Comet and Blu,

I've never seen so many toys before! Your mom is a generous person.



What a wonderful idea!

(and we are kinda amazed that you two didn't rip any of the toys to shreds - we've seen you fine work before!)
