Embarrassment of Riches

On Friday, a package arrived for Charlie -- his MangoMinster 2011 3rd place Cracker Dog prize from Jed and Abby!

It was a box chock-full of wonderful treats, picked out just for Charlie by Jed and Abby and their mama. Charlie and I opened it together, and he checked each item out, one by one.

They know he is totally food-oriented, and they sent a jar of yummy chewy sweet potato chips. One of Charlie's favorites! Plus some Chewnola bars. He's never had them before, but he loves his after-dinner retriever rolls, so he's sure to love these, too!!

Nom, nom, nom...

They also knew that, second only to his stomach, are Charlie's teeth. He knows how to use them and make them count! So to give him a legal way to exercise them, Jed and Abby sent a Durabone!

"What's that, Mom?"

"Never mind, I know what to do with this!"

And last, but not least, there was a colorful new stuffless stuffy! Charlie has a tendency to eat toys under some circumstances, but he loves to carry them around and lay his head on them, and we supervise him pretty closely.

"Here... I'll just take that."

"How do I look?"

Master of all he surveys.

Thanks, Jed and Abby (and their mama)! You were way too generous, but Charlie loves everything!!
