Luke Sends Ice Cubes
Marcus: Hey, is that all for me?
Buddy: No, it's for me and Merci too.
Marcus: Did Jan order these on Amazon?
Buddy: No, they came from our old friend Luke. He was renamed Benny, but you know how forgetful Jan is, so to us he's Luke/Benny. He lives in the Northeast and has a furry sister Rosie.
Merci: Why did he send us a gift box?
Buddy: Because he and his family wanted to do something nice for us canines. So they sent us some treats from where Luke/Benny's mom works. It's a holistic pet store and Luke/Benny gets to go to work with her. He picked these out himself.
Marcus: I remember meeting him before he went into rescue and was sent to the NE where his new family adopted him. Did Teresa get a box too?
Merci: I don't know. Teresa rescued him from his mean family when we couldn't help him any more because you were here, Marcus, and Teresa couldn't take in another dog either. Teresa and Jan are just so happy he has a good home, lives indoors, has a playmate sibling and gets a lot of love. Now he has a family and a job.
Marcus: Well, I am sure thankful they thought of us. Hurry up and open the treat.
Marcus: Oh, that looks good. It's a what, Jan? A 100% natural Himalayan Dog Chew made with yak and cow milk? Sounds yummy.
Merci: Thank you Luke/Benny, Rosie, Elise and Matt. We will enjoy everything, if Marcus doesn't hog the entire box.
Buddy: I was just thinking about the video we have watched several times of Luke helping himself from the refrigerator ice machine. He sure is a smart guy.
Marcus: That's right. He does filch ice. Do you suppose he included some ice in the package?
Buddy: *winks at Merci* Of course he did. Who in their right mind would ship a package of dog treats without including crushed ice?
Marcus: Thanks, Buddy. I'll just run in and make sure Jan put the ice in the freezer before it melted.
