Furball Friday

This past Sunday, Hamlet's former family stopped by for a bit on their way to visit a local winery - they wanted to bring us this book.


It's a book with photos and information about Hamlet's life before he came to live with us.  There are a few puppy pictures (OMG!), as well as all of his travels, here and abroad.  Yes, abroad - Hamlet has been to Europe 4 times, and has gone on 2 Viking River Cruises!  (And this weekend we're taking him to Baltimore ... yeah ...)

Anyway, it is probably one of the biggest surprises and best gifts we have ever received.  It takes a lot of effort to put one of these together, and this one is so well done, besides being such thoughtful thing to do in the first place.  They said they put one together for Karma and her new family too.  :-)

Of course, their current guide dogs, Oakley and Mike, came along and oh the hilarity!  All three dogs had so much fun chasing each other and "fighting" over toys.  After they left, Hamlet was wiped out for the rest of the day and evening.  But such a happy pup.

And on that note, Hamlet and I send along best wishes for a good weekend, whether or not there are any surprises.  Happy February!

Sure, Hamlet has traveled extensively internationally and written a book, but you and Tim will be the people who take him to Baltimore for a great weekend with wonderful people and his favorite treats and toys. He'll love it!

Oh, Bridget! This is just such a wonderful gift! Although, I am not quite sure how I feel about a dog that is better traveled than I am! Haha

Hugs to sweet Hamlet! Have a great weekend!

I just love this so much. Such a treasure! I hope you've all had a great time in Baltimore. (Which is kind of like going on a Viking River Cruise, I'm sure.) (At least . . . to a dog!) XO

That is the best gift!
I made one for my daughter about our trip to Eastern Europe last summer. I'm not sure she appreciated it as much as she should have!
