MARCUS: Hey, Jan, what's this? Is this all for me?
SAM: You lay a paw on anything there and you'll have to answer to Merci, Buddy and me!
MARCUS: But where did it come from? Did Jan order it for us?
RUSTY:: No, Jan was surprised to find it on our porch when she came back from the meeting last Thursday.
MICAH: It was funny. You dogs are doing the 30 day I and Love and You Challenge and she wondered what could be in a box from them.
CYNDI: When she opened it, she found dog goodies and socks. Organic cotton socks. 15 pairs.
PERCY: That's enough she could wear two pairs on her feet, a pair on her hands, a pair on her ears, and a single sock on her nose this winter to keep warm, and she would still have leftovers.
BUDDY: Okay, I was with you right up until you hung one sock on her nose. She'd need two socks, one for each nostril.
SAM: They wouldn't stay on and her nose would freeze anyway.
BUDDY: Not if she anchors them with a clothes pin. That's what she does with the new drapes.
MICAH: To get back to the subject, Jan started to write an email to Miss Sydney at Chewy to ask if she knew anything about the box.
RUSTY: She happened to look down at the box and noticed a slight problem.
CYNDI: The box was sent to our address but the addressee was not Jan of Jan's Funny Farm. It wasn't even close.
MERCI: She emailed the sender instead. As it turned out, no one was more surprised Jan had received an unexpectedly gifted box than the sender. Jan was sad she would have to return all those socks.
SAM: Socks? What about all those dog goodies?
PERCY: A clerical error giveth and the right thing to do taketh away.
MERCI: That's easy for you to say since there wasn't anything in the box for you cats.
PERCY: I and Love and You had partnered with the Wearpact sock company for a "Socks and Paws" contest.
BUDDY: The lady from the company was very nice. We get to keep the box. Oh, and everything in it too. When the winner receives a replacement box, we are sure she will enjoy it as much as we are enjoying this one.
MARCUS: You mean this is all ours? How generous! So when does Jan intend to start passing out the treats?
NOTE: Just for the record, this is a true story. We are grateful for the unexpected gift. It will in no way affect our 30 day I and Love and You challenge. Both they and Chewy are expecting an honest review of the product we are testing.
