We also got a package in the mail from Yoda and Brutus yesterday. Betty was especially excited because it was her first package with her name on it! Well, you'll have to trust us on this one...

What'd we get?!

Gunther, I'm pretty sure Yoda and Brutus sent something besides newspaper...

Eh, he's a simple man with simple needs.

Hmmm, what's this? Obviously more than just newspaper. Looks promising.

Oh crimeny, really? I'm sure Yoda and Brutus didn't intend for their pressie to wind up playing horsie. I'm a puglet, not a jackass.

Sorry Yoda and Brutus, but I'm gonna have to have a few words for Gumby. This might get ugly. Uno momento...

bleep, bleep, bleep...

Yo buddy, you okay? Poor Gumby, he didn't stand a chance.

Thanks for our new toy Yoda and Brutus! We've already had a lot of fun tossing Gumby around the yard and even had a great game of tug-o-war with him! Oh, and Gunther thanks you for his newspaper too. bol!

Lot's of smushface love to all our friends,
Stella, Gunther and Betty

I'm just going to grab those pug-cheeks and squeeze! You're too cute (and I'm being redundant, but I love the photos). I was on my way here to ask if you wanted to help my family with the catervention, but your post distracted me. Plus, yay! Thank you for the award.
Betty got her first present...I have a soft spot for the girl and I'm really happy you shared the moment :)
Thank you again for allowing me to brighten your day, as you do mine, Gunther, Stella, and Betty-boo
