Today we are joining our Blogville friends to remember Dory the Flower Friday Queen.

We don’t have much in bloom right now but one of the things we do have blooming is our cherry trees.

Dory was as perfect and sweet as the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae.

We know her three brothers are missing her and trying to figure out life without her. Blogville misses Dory and her beautiful smile too. We are sending hugs to Dory’s pawrents and hope they are feeling the love from all of us today and every day.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We wanted to make sure we got in on Dory’s “No Tricks Just Treats for Shelters” blog hop. It was kind of a trick that lead to us having these treats to donate.

Hey Millie look what Chewy.com sent us by accident What do you mean by accident?

You may remember from our post yesterday that we received our monthly treats from Chewy.com to taste test. Well the very next day we found another box from Chewy on our doorstep and we hadn’t ordered anything. There were these two bags in the box. One is Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Mixers Lamb Formula Freeze-Dried Dog Food Topper and the other was Wellness CORE Pure Rewards Grain-Free Beef & Venison Jerky Bites Dog Treats.

What do you think we should do with these? Aren't we going to do a taste test?

Our mom sent an email to Miss Sydney at Chewy.com and she said we could review them or we could give them away to a friend or shelter.

What did you say mom? We have to give these away?

Mom said that since Dory is hosting this fun event encouraging all of us to support our local shelters and rescue groups that it would be a good idea if we gave these to our rescue, Big Dogs Big Hearts.

I was really looking forward to tasting these jerky bites. Do you think the foster dogs will like these mom?

Well mom thought the dogs in foster care with our rescue would love to have these. We bet the foster pawrents can use them to do some training with them.

Okay mom.  I guess it's okay to give these away.

Okay mom. If you think that is the best thing to do we will give them away.
We know how much the rescue dogs will enjoy them although I was so looking forward to trying the jerky.

Our mom said they will be delivered to our rescue the next time she can get to one of their meet and greet events at our local pet store. We know it’s the right thing to do and are happy to join Dory in this great Halloween tradition she has.

Hi everyone! It’s Millie & Walter here. We sure have a lot of great friends that sent us some wonderful cards for the holidays.

Thanks for sending Walter & I so many beautiful cards.

Thanks for sending Walter & I so many beautiful cards.

We love all our cards whether they came by snail mail or email.

We love all our cards whether they came by snail mail or email.

As usual our pawrents came a distant second on the card count compared to us but we have to say that most of their cards came from doctors and companies they do business with.

It’s just a little pathetic what lengths our pawrents will go to up their card count. Well here is the final result.

As you can see we totally kicked butt on our pawrents. Here is a look at all our cards (including our pawrents).

Can you pick out your card?

Hi everyone! Today is Valentine’s Day and also the big dance that the Mayor Doods are hosting for all of us.

Heart to Heart Dance

I, Walter, am attending the big event with my girlfriend Tuiren.

Don't we look great!

Don’t we look great!

She sent me a wonderful Valentine’s Day card today. I hope she doesn’t mind if I share it with all of you.

I love you too Tuiren and if I’m lucky I might be able to steal a kiss later today at the dance.

Millie decided to go stag this year (since our mom never tried to help her find a date) but she heard a couple of silver misty grey guys were going together and is hoping to get a dance with both of them. She especially hopes she gets to wish Goose a Happy Birthday with a dance.

Millie is ready for the dance

Well we better get going. We don’t want to miss out on any of the action or any of the good food and fun. Check out the Mayor Doods blog for links to all the fun.

Hi everyone it’s Millie & Walter here. Today we are honoring our second Mayor Emeritus of Blogville, Miss Madi, by sharing our boxes with her. If you know any cat you know how they love boxes. We looked around our house and came up with the perfect box for Madi.

Millie Walter - with box for Madi

We think this box says it all about Miss Madi. Even though we have never met her in the furs we bet she is soft and we know from her blog she sure is a crafty cat.

Millie - sniffing boxMiss Madi will love this box. It is very roomy and she can easily hide in there for hours of enjoyment.

Walter checking inside boxIf you want Miss Madi we can even add some holes for you to look out.

Soft and Crafty Box detailsWe wanted to give you a close up of the box so you all can see what it says. We think many of those check boxes fit our Madi well. We know she has “superior resiliency”, we have seen that her furs have a “smooth consistency” and we know you are “unconditionally guaranteed” to have a good time when you visit her blog.

Sarge is hosting Madi’s Box Bash at his blog so be sure to hop on over there to see all the other boxes people have given to Madi. Thanks again Miss Madi for your great work as our Mayor for the past two years.

P.S. We apologize to all our readers that receive our post in an email for the empty post you received earlier. That’s what happens when your secretary starts to work on a post, schedules it to post, and then never comes back to work on it. Sorry Sarge but our mom deleted that first post and unfortunately your comment with it.

Hi everyone it’s Walter here. We are well into 2015 but I wanted to let you know how our final Christmas Card count for 2014 turned out.

Official Christmas Card Picture for 2014

Official Christmas Card Picture for 2014

We sure ended the year with lots of cards. You all did a great job in filling up our wall. Thanks for everyone that sent us one either through snail mail or by e-card. We printed all of those out too. So here are the final totals:

Millie & Walter

42 Snail Mail cards

22 e-cards

Total Card Count – 64

Mom & Dad

14 8

Final card count board

Mom keeps a white board with the current tally on it. The parents got a few more legitimate cards since my last report but dad tried to slip a couple of totally bogus ones in. Let me show you what I mean.

Exhibit A - New Year's Card from Driveway Sealer?

Exhibit A – New Year’s Card from Driveway Sealer?

Seriously?! First it is a New Year’s card which isn’t really a bad thing (we know some of our Blogville friends did send us New Year cards), but this one is from the guys that seal our driveway. Like we said before, cards from businesses don’t count. This last one was a real stretch.

What The Heck?!!!

Exhibit B – What The Heck?!!!

Dad tried to doctor this junk mail from American Express into a Holi-Day card. What the Heck?!!! Come on dad you really are taking this a bit too far. Millie and I just shook our heads and walked away and then made sure this so called card ended up where it belonged…in the trash!

Thanks to everyone for sending us your stamps. We have heard from a few of you that some are still on their way. If you need our mailing address just ask in the comments.

Mom wanted to let everyone know that if you want to save stamps all year you can send them to us whenever you feel you have a big pile and don’t want them around any more. That is how we got the picture of the stamps below. Those were all the stamps we collected during the past year after we sent our Christmas stamps in. We are going to make a new tab at the top of this page with all the information soon.

Thanks again to everyone that sent us a Christmas card this year and for all those stamps.

Hi everyone it’s Millie & Walter here. We were so excited to sign up for Angel Jazzi’s Christmas Gift Exchange this year. We will tell you later about the gifts we gave but today it is all about the gifts we received.

These pressies look great Millie!  Back off this is my box.

First up let’s see what Millie got. I got some great pressies from my partner Duncan from the White Dog Blog.

Look at all this great stuff!

Here is my official sit next to your pressie picture.

Mom always makes us pose with stuff.

I may not look thrilled but really I am it’s just that I get nervous when mom makes me pose for pictures. Even though Duncan is a boy he sure knows how to shop for a girl like me. He even included a gift for our mom.

Let’s move on and see what Walter got from his exchange partner Edward from Two French Bulldogs.

How do I get this paper off?

Maybe we can lick it off?

We have to admit that both of us were a little wrapping paper challenged and had to have mom help us.

Thanks Edward!  These are great pressies.

OMD look at the great pressies Edward got me. Did you notice that Millie and I got the same crinkle ball only different colors? Maybe Edward and Duncan shopped together.

Mom wanted to get official pictures of all our loot.

Those Ginger Bread Cookies smell great. Who cares about those cookies...I want that bone!

Those Gingerbeg Cookies smell great.
Who cares about those cookies…I want that bone!

All we wanted was to sample some of those treats. First up were the Gingerbeg Cookies. You did read that right, they are called “Gingerbeg” and OMD do they ever make you beg for more.

Bring it on! These cookies are great!

Om Nom Nom Nom....

Stingy mom only let us have one cookie each. Something about not wanting to upset our tummies if we ate the whole box or something. Oh well she did let us try one of the other treats we got.

Dried chicken breast strips! I love them!

This sure is drool worthy.

I’m in such a hurry to get it I’m blurry!

Both those treats were amazing. We had never had anything like them. Now we just have to get our mom to give us some more.

We can’t thank our partners Edward and Duncan enough. They picked perfect pressies for both of us. Also very big thanks to Angel Jazzi’s mom for organizing such a fun event.

Don’t forget to start sending us your stamps (some of you already have so thanks). Just leave a comment if you need our mailing address. We will give an update on our card count soon.
