Last week, Madison and I went shopping for a holiday gift basket for the pupperoos who belong to our friends Todd and Julie. We found some great Milk-Bone®, Milo’s Kitchen and Pup-Peroni treats as well as a few other goodies to add into the basket. Zachary helped me assemble the basket, and off we went to visit Leo and Abigail!
Tah dahhhhh! Our finished basket – placed exactly as Zachary wanted it all (no, really – the kid is picky and likes things just so).
The pups knew something was up, because they kept running around excitedly – or, maybe they just knew how awesome I was for being there, and couldn’t contain their excitement.
Okay, not really.
Anywho – we set the basket on the floor, and let the pups run over to check out their goodies!
Leo is on the left, Abigail is on the right.
They were truly overjoyed with their gifts. They ran around the basket in circles a few times, until Todd finally pulled out the toys and nommible goodies for them to enjoy.
Laser beams set to…stun!
Leo claimed Maddy’s favorite plush of the bunch all for himself….
…then he went for a hedgehog.
Treat time! Todd cracked open the box of Milk-Bone® treats, and the pups eagerly awaited their snack.
We even received an impromptu hind leg jig from Leo for a Milk-Bone®!
Milo’s Kitchen treats really seemed to interested the pups. All puppy eyes were on Todd as he opened the package – and then Leo jumped up for another treat (I promise Abigail received plenty herself – Leo was just crazy happy)!
Zachary came over and gave Abigail a treat – well…he was a little overcome with their excitement and was happier sitting on the couch watching everything.
After a few more treats, the duo started playing tug of war with the yellow dog, making the squeaker sound like it was dying an uncertain death.
Poor Abigail was just plain tuckered out after all of the excitement.
But Leo? Well…his face says it all.
All in all, the Milk-Bone® treats and gift basket was a HUGE hit with the pupperoos – you can practically hear them telling you THANK YOU!!!, can’t you?
A huge thank you to Milk-Bone® for allowing us to get these special pups an amazing holiday basket. And a super duper huge thank you to Todd and Julie for being so awesome for knowing me! Oh, okay – for being awesome yourselves and having the world’s super cutest dogs ever.
