Prizes, Goodies and Beans Galore

Wow, I don't think I have ever been silenced for this long!!

Firstly, my apologies for not getting around everyones blog much recently, my two little beans have been on holiday from school and Mum has been pretty busy with the three of us so blogging got waylaid.. well thats her version of events.. I just think its inexcusable and outrageous and that she should get her priorities straight.

anyway, enough of all that,

Wow, I have so much to tell you that I don't quite know where to start..

Firstly I had my photoshoot for the newspaper, I was as aloof as ever faced with a camera and the whole thing took about an hour.. I ensured that the photographer got plenty of "rump" shots. She finally managed to get some half decent shots and it appeared in the paper a few weeks ago.. I'm officialy a "bit" famous!! I've been recognised a few times! Mum got my prize through the post today £50 of vouchers for Trophy Pets... thats one heck of a lot of toys!!

Next was a parcel in the post for me!! ... My name was on the envelope!! What could it be??
It was from my friend Grumpy Bobby.

A T-Shirt.. and.. thats ME on the front!!

Now Bobby says that it's for Mum as they didn't know my size.. hmmm.. BUT... it's MY name on the envelope .. sooooo... we shall see just who it fits!!

hahaha.. sorry Mum, but that looks pretty conclusive to me! It fits me.. it's MINE!!
Thank you soooo much Bobby, you made Mum's eyes leak at your kindness! Mum says she will wear it with pride... when I let her!! hehehe

oh and lets not forget the International Goodie Exchange.. I took a parcel to the post office for Molly & Taffy

and today.. another parcel arrived for me!! Yes.. this was my International Goodie Exchange parcel from Harry and Cassidy I was soooo excited!

Hmmm how do I get in here?

Oh my doG.. something smells GOOD!!

Get the labels off Mum I wanna play!!

and a letter.. for me!!

Where do I start??

Cranberry Treats!! Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Oooh and Chicken and Veg!! Mmmmm.. chill out Mum I will be cleaning all that up.. with my mouth!!


THANK YOU Harry and Cassidy for sending me such a great parcel, I'm truly over the moon with it! and BIG THANK YOU'S to Mr T-Bone Beasley and
Chef for organising the International Goodie Exchange and for all your hard work to make this happen. You can visit the Goody Exchange Album and see other doggies enjoying their goodie packages too.

oh and also.. I was accused of a crime today.. a crime I completely DENY being involved in. I stand accused of digging up the garden.. but I ask you.. does this face look guilty of such a crime??

I mean.. look a little closer, do you see the innocence shining from my eyes??

and last but not least.. since my brush with fame as a Pet Idol, I decided I would quite like to become a Rock Star or something.. I reckon looking at this next shot of me I have what it takes.. if David Bowie can get into the business with two odd coloured eyes then I guess I'm halfway there.. one brown/blue eye.. one brown/green eye.. I was born to be a SuperStar!!

Love, Licks and Tailwags,

Ben xxx

Tracey and Huffle said...

Ben, I was wondering where you'd got to! I'm very proud of you with the photo effort, does your mum have some from the paper that she can scan in to show us all?

And by the way, you look totally innocent in that shot and there is no way you could have been digging in the garden. I will give your mum a reference if you need it.

I don't know why but you look guilty in those pictures!

Peanut said...

My mom says she's been busy with my two kids also since they are on holiday too. What a great package you got. I know you would never ever dig up the garden

Tasha & Eva said...

You look perfectly innocent. Don;t let them frame you.

Maggie & Mitch said...

Digging in the garden? Those are cookie crumbs all over your nose and mouth, right? What a nice gifty box you got from Harry and Cassidy!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Snowball said...

Dear Ben,

You look so adorable in all those pictures. You totally demolish the scary thought people has for Rottie. But you are still very handsome.


The Zoo Crew said...

Love the shirt....I do think you should share with your mum! And the goodie box is most excellent :)

Maya and Kena said...

Hi Ben!
Sorry we haven't been barking in a while.. the humans are just always SO busy these days!
Great stuff you got there! And we like your post office! Perfect size!
Also, we think you couldn't look more innocent! How could your human accuse you of something like digging in the garden?
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena

Sophie Brador said...

Wow Ben, great stuff! And you look fabulous in that t-shirt.


Noah the Airedale said...

Hi Ben
You sure have been busy lately. I've had my photo in the paper too, it's great being recognised isn't it?? We voted for you in the idol comp, we're glad you won.
You're parcel from Cassidy and Harry looks great matie. Have fun with it.

Hugs and tail wags

Thor said...

Hi Ben!
You look great in your t-shirt!
And you got cool presents from Harry and Cassidy!
You are totally innocent!!
I hope you have a great weekend!


Bobby said...

I am pleased you like the t-shirt, you have got a lot of great presants. The Haircut says he thinks you are guilty of digging in the garden he says you can see the evidence,what does he know he plays with toilet rolls.


Wow Ben youve had an exciting week! Looks like you really enjoyed receiving your goody exchange parcel.
Is that sand on your nose or are they cookie crumbs?

Georgeous said...

Hi Buddy!
I've missed sniffing your posts, glad to see you're back!
Your goodies look great & I definately think the t shirt is for you. A little hot weather advise: wet your new t shirt and wear it when out in the sun, it's a great trick for us black and tans.
Love the post office picture!!
Lots of Love 'n' Slobber

Mack said...

Wash your nose - quick!!
Before you get accused of anything else you didn't do!!

What a wonderful box of pressies you got from Harry & Cassidy! Are they from the UK too???

And what does your TShirt Say? I saw a pic of a Rottie on it - so mom instantly loved it!

See ya!

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

Pawsome gifts!

Pippa said...

Hiya Ben
Have you got that t-shirt on the right way round? Doesn't the picture normally go at the front?
Anyway I know you are innocent too, and even if you weren't, I am sure you would have been doing it for a good reason.
Remember, there are no bad dogs. Only bad humans.

Lady Kaos said...

Wow! You've been busy - opening mail!!!! Glad to see you back to posting!! Oh, and the only thing I saw in those pictures was innocence!! Let us know if we need to convince your Mom of that, too. :)

Charlie Daniels said...

G'day Ben

You look innocent to be buddy!



Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Ben the Rotti!!!! Welcome back! I've missed you! Those kids can be a handful. My human takes me to work and makes me play with them, and I feel you man, it's a lot of work!!!

Anyway! Whooooo for all of the awesome presents you got! Those look like so much fun! I don't even wait for my human to take the label off. I do my own's faster than waiting for the human! Hehehehe! Harry and Cassidy found some good stuff...what good friends!

As for that's what I think. I think that someone got into your garden, like the kids...and when you saw the mess you tried to fix it so that your mum wouldn't be mad. I can totally see the innocence in your eyes. I believe you! Hehehe

Mr. T-Bone Beasley

happy said...

Those are some great goodies and pressies, Ben! Hmm...your eyes sure shone with innocence but err...your nose is showing something else though.

Mango said...

You look fantastic in your Ben shirt. How did that dirt get on your nose?


Molly and Taffy said...

Hello Ben

Your Goodies from Harry and Cassidy look wonderful.
Thank you for posting such an excellent parcel to us, the PIG... woohooo he flies!!!!!!!!! he gets tossed in the air and then flies, so you see piggies do fly! tee hee.

Our hooman is always so busy at the moment as well, so unfair that we have to suffer isn't it.

Wow - you made out like a black rottie bandit with the gift exchange!! Have a great weekend!

Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Ben, you're innocent until PROVEN guilty. That's Shiloh's philosophy. Congratulations on becoming famous. Next you'll be on "Britian's Got Talent" like that border collie Gin. If you do, watch out for that Simon guy, he does "American Idol" over here and he barks a lot at contestants; someone needs to bite him. We put your link on our Bumpass Blog Buddies list cuz dad says we don't make no money and are just friendly mutts; not smart friendly mutts.

Molly and Taffy said...

Hi Ben

Have posted a video of Taffy playing with the pig you sent us. It is a marvellous toy.


BWTH Dog House said...

Ben oh Ben!!!!!!!

Hmm...its kinda weird calling myself...

slurpy licks,

Jackson, Narra, & Tuchuck said...

Hello, Ben! What are we going to do about our humans? They're always making excuses! Rest assured, you're handsome as ever--love the t-shirt! The only thing you're guilty of is being so good lookin'!

Wuffstuff said...

Great stuff from Cassidy 'n' Harry. Cassidy's sister Roxy is very jealous.

Wow Ben,
You rock with the presents. They were great(especially the shirt, don't let your mom wear it, they never take care of their stuff)
About the garden, always deney and look innocent. To bad that dust storm came by when you were out side, and got dirt on your nose.

Cookie and crew

Dear Ben
Congrats on being a Super Star Rotti. It is pawsome you were featured in the newspaper. I think the T-shirt looks better on you, and wow did you receive a lot of presents and treats. I met your Rotti mate, Georgeous George today too.
Love from Hammer
