Look what came in the mail

Hey look I got a package. It was from the lovely Ellie

Here is Dad helping us open it.

Here we are trying to inspect the stuff put in there for mom. She got some flavored olive oil, some Parmesan blend dipper stuff and some bruschetta stuff. She says yummy. I don't care about all that so I wouldn't let her put a picture of it up.

Here is a picture of some of our stuff. We got some treats and mom has given us some of them but not nearly enough and we got a stuffed porcupine (at least that is what I think it is) I heard my girl says it looks like a hedgehog. and stuffed monkey that makes actual monkey noises.
Well mom decided she would try and let us play with them and YOU KNOW WHAT? We didn't fight over them. The porcupine-hedgehog is already dead. I killed it within 5 minutes. Look at my handy work.

I did that to both of his arms. hahaha I am happy to say the monkey is still alive though he has lost a couple of squeakers.

On a much sadder note. We have found out the unit dad will be going to is deploying some time before the end of the year. So mom told us to be prepared for him to go also. I have to say that moving and then losing dad so soon after is going to really upset and mom should be expecting for be to be bad though I will try and be good. I just don't do change well. I am going to have to find a substitute dad (who will never take the place of my dad of course) to play with me while mine is gone. Mom just doesn't play rough enough.


  1. Thats cool, and cute and kill it, kill it, go for the eyes.

  2. oooooh Peanut, so sorry to hear about your Dad going away......he will be back I am sure beforer you know it!

    love and sad licks, Marvin xxxxxx

  3. Peanut...change is hard and I'm really sad to hear you're dad may have to go away. Hopefully not, and if so we'll all be thinking happy good thoughts for him to come home safe, sound and soon!

    Lots of Licks, Ruby

  4. Peanut:
    Why did you kill your gift from Ellie? You should have put it on a shelf and looked at it everyday.

  5. Owie, poor hedgehog/porcupine creature!

    Sorry to hear dad may be deployed. I'd miss my dad loads too. No-one can play quite the same as a dad.

  6. I'm so sorry, Peanut! I don't really know how it works though... if they deploy BEFORE you guys move down there, will your dad still have to go?

    At least you got some cool toys to play with now...!

  7. Gomer & Opie4:34 PM

    Gomer hates appendages, stuffing and squeakers in toys and won't stop until all three are detached. Opie hats eyes. So we have a bunch of flat, unstuffed pieces of cloth with no arms or legs or eyes in the toybox.

    (Dogmom said she bets that you just laughed out loud!)

    Wuf Ya - Gomer & Opie

    PS - sorry to hear about your dad - but dogmom said that we're really happy that there are soldiers who keep the world safe for us.

  8. Sorry to hear about your daddy. But its humans like him that keep our countries safe. Four paws up for your pops!!

    Wow, it only took you 5 minutes to kill that stuffie?? You're good!!


  9. sorry to hear about your daddy :( We can send ours over for a weekend or something?

  10. Hi Peanut,
    That was a record breaking time kill! Good on you!
    Hopefully you will be able to deal with Daddy not being ard. Meantime, u can find more hedgehog to kill! :p

  11. Sorry to hear about your dad Peanut, hopefully he won't be gone long.

    You really did a number on your toy! I'm a little more gentle that way mom doesn't have to buy me as many haha!

    BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)

  12. Hey Peanut. We're sorry your Dad is being deployed. Our Dad's son has been in Iraq twice. It really stresses everyone in the family. He came home safely both times and now everyone is happy. We will get to see him when we go camping on vacation next week. They live in Arkansas now. They have a CAT! How much fun is that?

    If you need some cheering up, just holler at us.

    BTW, your toy is a Hedgehog. We've been through two of them. Now we're working on a duck.
    Licks & Wags,
    Eddie & Peaches

  13. Woh you killed that porcupine-hedgehog real fast. So sad to hear about your dad. Hope he wont be away for too long.

  14. Way to go guys on not killing each other over the hedgehog!!! Maybe this is a turning point for you two. That Ellie is such a great girl! I don't mind sharing MY Peanut with her at all.

    My Mom is so sad hearing that your Dad may be deployed. He & your family will be in our thoughts & prayers every day.


  15. Awesome toys! It's really a bummer about your dad, though. It must be especially sad for your mom so you guys should be extra good.


  16. YAY Peanut and Flash! No fighting! Maybe no you guys will get lots and lots more! Stuffies are the best to KILL!!!

  17. Hi, Peanut.
    I am so sad to hear that your Dad may be deployed. We will be praing for him. Try to spend as much time with him as you can. And you have to be super nice with your mom!
    Did you set a record killing that stuffie?? I am sure you did!
    Have a nice day

  18. Good job on the killing! You're evidently very very good at it. I got a hegehog too, but i haven't managed to get off all the legs yet.

  19. Hey Peanut, You did a good number on that stuffie! Sorry to hear about your dad heading out. That's a real drag.

  20. Wow, you really killed it! Good job. :)


  21. Peanut, I think you better keep an eye on Raven.

  22. We're sorry to hear about your Dad. We hope he isn't gone too long.
    Nice job killing that porcupine-hedgehog. You sure showed it who the boss is!

  23. Very cool toy!

    We're sorry to hear about your Dad, we know it's going to be rough for you all.

    We're here if you need us.

    The Brat Pack

  24. Maybe you should find a substitute dad to send away and keep the real one at home!

  25. Cool Toys!!! I have that hedgehog too...well...I sorta have it because I sorta killed it too, but mom says that he'll survive with some surgery.
    I'm sorry to hear that your dad will be going away =( I hope he isn't gone too long!

  26. Hey, Peanut.

    Glad to see we're on the same page about the stuffies (they're easier to cuddle once you kill them). And, it looks like you a Flash are growing emotionally. I'm so proud of you guys.

    About your dad. I know it's his job and all, but I'm sorry to hear he may be deployed. Keep us posted. Anything that especially cracks your mom up? If so, let me know & I'll see what I can do.

    Goob love to everyone at your house,
