But first, I want to talk about Schmitty, The Real New Yorkie. I took the information from the label of Schmitty's beautiful plush:
Schmitty the Real New Yorkie is a five pound pooch living in the big city who's puppy love for canine couture and posing for cameras came in handy after 9/11 when Schmitty started a greeting card company to give back toher brave firefighter friends. Schmitty continues to give back 5% from the sales of her New Yorkie and Real New Yorkie products to good and worthy causes.
Wow, Schmitty has a big and beautiful heart! More information here.
Now, my gift. Mom brought this really big box and I was amazed, I love boxes. But Mom told me that the box wasn't the gift, the real gift is inside; so I went inside.
Mom and The Other One helped me take the things outside. Do you want to know what was in my gift basket? Here they are:
I told Mom I want to be like Schmitty and have my own calendar. This one has pretty pictures of Schmitty and healthy do's and dont's. Really clever idea.
In the basket came also a t-shirt. Here Mom was trying it on me. I think that my husky body (as you know, I'm not fat) will fit a little tight there.
Mom told me that, as a good brother, I have to share my gifts with the rest of the family. I don't like the idea, but I think she's right.
He decided to take one of the cards, the John Lennon "Imagine" Memorial in Central Park, card. It's just his style, he said.
Schmitty also sent me a very big and practical canvas bag. Mom loved it and said that it will be perfect to carry her books. So I let her have it; she's my Mom, after all.
She inmediately fell in love with the plush, barked at it a little and then started to play. Now she takes Schmitty's plush to bed every night to curl up with it. Mom and The Other One were laughing so much with Liah playing with the plush that they took this little video. I think you're going to laugh, too.
Note: No plush were harmed during this film.
Cokie and Schmitty, I'm deeply touch and grateful of all the joy you have bring my family with all these beautiful gifts. I'll remember this all my life.
