Nala Paws It Forward

There was excitement in our house today when A Paw It Forward parcel arrived from Nala (with a bit of help from her mum, Amber) all the way over in America! Jana and the paps couldn't wait to investigate, as you'll see from the photos below, some of which are a little blurry I'm afraid but that was down to the flurry of activity!

Jana's keen to get unwrapping

There was a lot of interest in what was inside!

There was this great hedgehog toy, complete with furry, squeaky eggs which you stuff inside and which the dogs have a fun time trying to remove..........

..........I've never seen anything like it before and the dogs loved it!

There was also some very tasty salmon treats, the perfect size for training

There was a lovely card and photo of Nala and also some scrummy blackberry tea cookies for LSH and me......I can't show you those because they were so nice that we ate them all!

Louis has the hedgehog whilst Rosa gets one of the eggs

Pansy thinks the eggs are just as good as her green ball

I hate to say it but the hedgehog is looking a little alarmed

Jana couldn't wait to have a play........

...........and she managed to get one of the eggs out!

I think she has a taste of those salmon treats

Hebe checks to see if anything got left in the parcel

Mmmmmm! Yummy salmon!

Jana practises her catching skills with the treats. Click on the photos to see in more detail

Sucked in cheeks just before her mouth opens. It looks like she has no teeth!

Caught it!!
Although she is quite good at catching them, I had to take many photos to get this sequence. Jana wasn't complaining as it meant she got more of the treats!
The dogs really enjoyed them, if I can't find them in this country then maybe I'll have to look into getting a supply sent over!

Thanks very much Nala and Amber for the lovely gifts, they've gone down a storm!

Would you like to join in for Paw It Forward? Here are the rules. "The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and 'paw it forward' in their own way. This is how it works...we are going to agree to send something fun, inspiring or uplifting to the first 3 blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn you will then post about this on your blog, link to us, then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog. There are no cost restraints, BUT don't go crazy! The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. No biggie, just a gift that will make the person smile. Maybe something unique from where you live? And, remember that kindness doesn't have to involve money; there are untold ways to help others every single day, everywhere you go - just look around." SO PAW IT FORWARD...

If you are one of the first three to comment and would like to take part then send me an email with your address. My profile contains a link to my email.

Lovely idea! There are so many little random acts of kindness and it makes the world a better place for everyone.
Love the photos of the dogs - gorgeous and obviously much-loved.
Our Frodo (Frodo the Faller) is epileptic and incident rather than accident-prone - usually engendered through his greed!

It looks like Hebe wants to return to sender. "There has to be more squeaky eggs and salmon treats over there".

Amber and Nala said...

Do you have your 3 yet??? :) Ya know, we would be happy to send some more of those treats if you can't find them. :) They have a few different flavors too. I also love them for training.

Suki said...

I would like to take part.
It's such a good idea to make somebody else, you don't know in person smile.

Hilary said...

Great collection of photos! I love the ones of Hebe in the bag. Made me laugh out loud :) Good to meet you.

Helen said...

Those are great photo's. It looks like a fun toy and the treats went down very well by the looks of it. :-)

Ooh - what a lovely package with so many wonderful things inside! Loved the pictures of all the doggies playing with the things - especially the one of Jana getting the ball out...and the one of all the papillons standing up to get a salmon treat!

What a wonderful idea! We're a bit late this time but hope to get to join in sometime!

I don't have a dog, so no "paw it forward" for me, but I enjoyed this, nevertheless.

jabblog said...

Still getting used to the Blogosphere so by the time I'd worked out where I was supposed to be and doing what I missed the boat.*sighs*
I'm sure those who take part will enjoy it.

Kimberly said...

I'm sorry thank you for offering to include Bell and I in your game.. unfortunely we have a lot going on right now. I would love to see what puppy gets what treats next though - super fun!

Carla said...

Very Vute! They all look like they are having great fun!

Esther Garvi said...

Oh Gennasus, that was brilliant! Sheba is still waiting for her package!

Suki said...

We got our package today and are very happy about it! Akira can't stop to play with the wild hairy haggis. She loves it!
Thank you for all the lovely things!

What great photos ... capturing the excitment of the moment.

You all certainly enjoyed yourself with the presents and treats. :)
