Who We Are

It's Christmas in July!

Ha roo, pups and kit-cats! It's me, Stormy! Before I get started on today's post, I would like to take a moment to thank our friends over at the OP Pack for presenting all of us with the Cool Cat Award! Thank you so much! We are truly honored!

Yesterday was such a great day! True, our temps topped 100, but we celebrated Christmas! Ha rooo! Our sweet friends Kat and Steve (how come Steve always gets top billing?) sent us some Christmas in July presents!

Zim helped Mom open the box!

Zim unpacking!

There were REALLY cute pictures of Kat and Steve in the box - obviously, they helped their mom pick everything out! There was a bag of SOS-SRF Husky Java coffee beans for Mom and Dad (and Zim!). Mom's having some now and says, "Yum!" They picked out a blue Wubba for Zim (just like his girlfriend Sitka has!)...

Zim and his cool new Wubba!

...an Air Kong football for Dave (it SQUEAKS!)...

Dave - a real football kinda guy!

a Kong Wubba for Ammy in her signature green...

Ammy and her Wubba - thinking about Brice, no doubt

...AND a cool Jumping Jack Kong toy for ME! It's RED like my collar! Here I am with it!

Me! Storms! And my cool new toy!

Every time Mom turned the camera on, I stopped playing with it. Ha roo roo roo. I made her take about 100 pictures before she even got that shot of me sitting by it. That was pretty exhausting, so when my Zim asked me if he could try chewing on the toy, I said he could.

He really likes it a LOT! That made me so happy. He doesn't really play with too many toys!

Dave, on the other paw, LOVES toys. Ammy turned her back on her Wubba for a second and he snagged it.

See the rip marks in the top of the toy? Jaws of Steel strikes again! Mom thinks this is going to be the perfect outside one-on-one toy for her and Ammy. But not a laying around ripping it to shreds toy. She did that in a matter of minutes. She and Brice really DO have a lot in common!

Kat! Steve! Many thanks to you and your mom and dad for the wonderful gifts! The best gift of all, of course, is your friendship!

Tail wags,


  1. You're so welcome! We're glad you like all those toys. We don't actually have any of those items, but watching you play with them makes us want to go get Wubbas, jumping jacks, and footballs for ourselves! We do have some other AirKong stuff, just not the football. Have tons of fun!

    Look at all of those KHOOL pressies! The Kong Football looks KHOOL. Can I come play with Dave with it??? I have an Air Kong tennis ball and barbell, but the football looks so neato! And WUBBAS! Cornelia Marie LOVES hers.

  17. GREAT toys, we have a wubba too but it is not THAT big! You'd probably swallow ours whole!!
