Beach trip and we got pressies!

Last week we went to the beach - yippee!! It isn't very far from where we live -
in fact it is where our mummy works. She tells us that her office is just five minutes away from
this beach and she often come here at lunchtime and thinks about how much we would love to be there too....

Although it is January, the beach was packed because it was sunny - but it was also blustery and quite cold - perfect for us! We just love running through the waves.

Daddy always manages to find a stick from somewhere -

he is the best stick-thrower ever.

BUT - to make our week even more special...

WE GOT PRESSIES!!

(why is it that Gertrude is always so polite and well-mannered when there are pressies going around??!)

Well, to be more accurate MOLLY got presents - but being a generous kind of gal (and because I don't stand much of a chance against Gertrude when she wants something from me...) I decided I would share the prizes from Goober Stan's 'Most Improved Beard' title.
We got a cool squeaky stuffy toy, an even cooler fridge magnet with a photo of Stan the Man himself (!swoon!) and some great treats. One was a pigs nose that was almost (almost!!) as big as our noses, but not quite (with a bit of poetic license)!
We LOVED the sweet potato chewy treats - they are just yummy and last a long time. We must try to find some over here. They look nice and healthy for the discerning girl who is watching her waistline....
Thank you Stan. Your magnetic photo now reigns over our kitchen from the fridge and has an exclusive view into our very own dinner bowls - how good is that?!
We must have been very good and very lucky girls this week because we also got some other pressies from some friends in America. A quacky duck, a frisbee that flies for miles and yet more treats!!

Here we are getting down to some serious bonding time with our new toys. That duck is just asking to be quacked don't you think?

And who was victorious.....why me of course - Molly the Marvellous!!

We are truly spoilt and will enjoy all these things for a long while to come.

Love from Molly and Gertrude

Hey, Molly & Gertie Girls!!!

Wish like anything I could have joined you at the beach. I've yet to see the ocean! You chicas sure know how to work those waves.

I am pleased you received your contest prizes, and I'm really excited that you like the treats. They are some of my faves.

My girl and I have been staring at your photos and admiring your woolly blonde curls. Bootiful!

Remember, I'm always watching over your kitchen from the fridge!

Goober love & smooches,
STanley

Hi Molly, Hi Gertrude,

The beach looks so cool. My beach is covered with snow and the water is all iced over. It's so nice to see Aire-pups romping on the beach! Your toys from Stanley's contest are super cool. Way to go Molly, and you are so sweet to share with Gertrude!

Your pal,
Kirby

Hello Molly and Gertrude

We love all your presents, it looks like Christmas all over again, those sweet potato treats certainly sounded tasty.
The photos of you running along the beach are lovely, we hope to be able to do that one day.

Your trip to the beach looks like lots of fun! We've never been to the beach, so we don't know whether we like water or not. Those are some pawsome treats you got!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy & Penny

Hey pals, what a beautiful beach. You wouldn't catch me going in the water though, it's far too cold! Congrats on your prizes. Did Stan send you Sam's Yams Sweet Potato treats? J1 tried to find a supplier here in the UK but in the end she had to get them sent over from the US. You can make them yourselves though, they're very easy. J x
