Twice As Precious

Merci:  We love Thankful Thursdays because we get to tell something we're ... well, thankful for, of course.

Sam:  This week we would like to give a special thanks to our dear friends Miss Pat and her canine Satch who sent us a wonderful gift box.

Buddy:  Monday afternoon the mail carrier caught Jan just as she was leaving to pick up some food and gave her a very heavy package.  This is what she found when she opened it.  Can you believe all this came out of that skinny box?

Marcus:  Is this where I say I don't believe it?

Buddy:  Yes:

Marcus:  Okay.  I don't believe it!  How did she fit it all in?

Merci:  Miss Pat just knows how to pack a box.  All those cans are dog food.  We don't get canned food any more unless someone gives us some.  We love canned food mixed in our kibble.

Marcus:  So what are all those other items?

Sam:  Dog treats, hip and joint chews, some odds and ends Miss Pat threw in for Jan - tea bags, chewy bars, popcorn, even some postage stamps. 

Marcus:  Wow.  Is it Jan's birthday?

Merci:  Not for a couple of weeks. And even if it was her present, she'll share the canned food with us.

Sam:  Are you sure Jan will share?

Merci:  No, not really.  She does have an appetite. I hope she doesn't get the urge to snack in the middle of the night.

Buddy:  We are grateful for the package and it is twice as precious to us.  You see, that food was intended for Satch, but he hadn't been doing well for a while.  He and Miss Pat realized he wouldn't be able to hang around long enough to eat it, so they sent it on to us.  It arrived just a few hours before he was helped to the bridge.  (We posted Saluting Satch on Tuesday.)

 Merci:  Miss Pat took good care of Satch and we know it's a big adjustment to be without him now. 

Sam:  *removes his straw hat and places it over his heart*  We will think of Miss Pat and Satch as we eat the food they sent.
