Duke's Valentine Surprise

Look what came in the mail yesterday.

 
Of course I took it right downstairs to give it to Duke.


He was lounging on the couch watching TV and when I gave it to him he wanted to know what it was. I told him to read it.


Once he saw that it was addressed to him he could hardly contain himself. He ripped right into it.
  
I never told him that he had won the giveaway over at Sugar the Golden Retriever. I wanted him to be surprised and boy was he ever. He couldn't wait to try on his prize.


There was even a Valentine in the package.


Thanks Sugar, Duke loved the ruffle collar. Happy Valentines Day to all of you.

Oh how handsome you look in your festive designer collar Duke! I will [I hope] be heading to the post office with your package tomorrow. I got a teensy bit sidetracked with an idea for a little extra surprise [or two] to tuck in there for you and Duke, hence the delay :o)
