Omigoodness, those photos with Tammy just melt me. She has untapped her maternal instinct big time! Toby may just be the world's cutest puppy. I'm sure you agree!

Precious! Looks like everyone is getting along just fine! Tammy is such a good guardian for Toby! Don't tell me King Toffee has let his guard down!

My sweetness, your Aunti Mimi wishes she could be there with you to snuggle into your chubby tummy and give you kisses and play tug with you and cuddle with you when you nap.

Tell your momma that she is a furry special PURRson to send so much love out into the Universe over here to Michigan. Watching you grow into a big boy is going to be so much fun!

Hugs and kisses and oodles of love,

Your Aunti Mimi

We have an "Auntie Overboard" here too. They are they bestest kind. Lady gets spoiled and loved to her hearts content. Toby, you are lucky to have such an awesome Aunti.

Mrs. JP said...

That Puppy Book is so cute.
Look at Tammy being the mommy, I knew she'd be great with him. What was a pleasant surprise is to see King Toffee at the other end of the towel playing. GO KING TOFFEE!! He can't resist Toby's cuteness either.

Um, okay, so my mom just melted into a gooey puddle on the floor. Moms are such suckers for cute little fluffy sweet furballs like you, Toby!

You sure do have a sweet Aunt Mimi to send you such beautiful pressies! And it was very much nice and considerate of you to thank her in such a prompt and adorable way. I bet she's got a smile on her face as big as all of Collie-rado! (and that's pretty big!)

Amy & the house of cats said...

Oh boy we are so behind - I can't believe we missed that Toby is home! How awesome is that - and oh my gosh what a cutie! I went through all the posts since he was there - oh, it looks like he is fitting in just perfect, and the picture of him with Tammy just makes me smile! What a cutie he is - it sounds like he is such a happy little guy, and we are so glad he is with you in his forever home now!

This is one of the best things about having a new arrival, the great welcoming gifts that arrive to make the new addition feel that much more welcomed!! I really love Tammy with Toby and it's great to see that even the King has found a soft spot for the new prince! :-)))

sprinkles said...

What a cool idea! I've seen baby books, of course, but never a puppy book! It's going to be fun filling that up.

I'm so glad to see King Toffee playing with Toby. Hopefully in time he'll let his guard down more and maybe they'll even be friends.

Golden Samantha said...

Oh how sweet of Auntie Mimi to send such luscious toys and book! I must say too that those photos of Toby and Tammy are just so sweet! And the first page of the book your Mom helped you make are wonderful! Even the towel tug game with Mr. Toffee is just wonderful! You are so welcomed, Toby - and we send you hugs and love too!

You are the cutest, cutest, cutest little puppy! You are very lucky too, with your mom, Tammy, and the King all watching out for you.

You learned English so fast. That's impressive!

I saw a yellow lab puppy yesterday. Oh my... someday one will join us. Just not quite yet. I'll watch you grow up instead!

Well hello Toby! It is nice to meet you. We have missed so very much in the last few weeks.

Watching Tammy-girl take care of you is so wonderful. It seems here heart needed a filling as much as Maxmom's did.
We look forward to reading about your adventures. You have a whole big world to explore and loving beings to go with you.
Our hearts feel a little fuller as well!
