The postman calls three times

I'm the kind of dog that loves postmen, mainly because just recently they've been bringing me some lovely goodies.

First of all came a surprise package all the way from Scotland which contained the items the Lady Of The House bid for in an online auction in aid of RoyalHeart Greyhound Rescue and run by the lovely people at the Living with Pet Bereavement forums.

It wasn't just paper,like it looks in this picture, honestly. In fact there were two parcels. Once had some boring stuff for the LOTH but the other had two collars for me, a big bag of rawhide chips and a special chewy shoe from my great friend King Presley.

Then there were some packages of posters and a big banner from the Retired Greyhound Trust for the event the LOTH and her friend Alyson are doing in April (of which more on another day).

Then this week, the postman rang for a third time with a big box, and this is what happened next:

It turns out that the LOTH and I had won a competition we entered in the magazine that comes from our pet insurance people at PetPlan and we'd won a leather lead, a non-slip water bowl, a furry bed an a lot of dog food from Natural Instinct - who pride themselves on dog food as nature intended.

I am planning to share with food with my good friends Biscuit, Fender and Revel who live nearby but I've made myself at home on the bed already.

Hope you are lucky too in everything you do this weekend. Have a great time.

Oh my dogness! I would leave a trail of breadcrumbs outside every day so the mailman never misses the house! That is some fantastic loot! Winnie, you hit the jackpot. I am so happy for you, and you look adorable with your stuff!

Great parcels. Those are the kind we like; but we have to confess that we bark at our postman. He comes on a motorbike.

Wow, I won't tell Frankie and Beryl about this cos they'd be wanting me to enter competitions so I could try and win them some great gear and food too!! Although living in New Zealand the opportunity to enter competitions like yours are pretty much non-existant:)

Congratulations Winnie!!

Lucky you! & you are very good at opening parcels!

My dogs like parcels too - esp the ones form the pet pharmacy because they put in bonus biscuits for good dogs!
