Getting the Cards Done

The lady got all weird last weekend and told us we couldn't go out until the cards got done. No walkies, no treats, nada. She hasn't even opened any that we have received, she feels guilty about opening them when we haven't sent ours out.

"So get to it" I told her! So she did, printing, glueing, writing, folding, addressing, it was crazy, papers, cards, envelopes were everywhere. I helped by sneaking onto the table when she went to the bathroom and throwing her nice neat piles onto the floor. She didn't look to happy with that. I wonder why?!

So I told Reilly to get ready, cause the one way we could help was to lick the envelopes. Now look, you can see what naturals we would be at that.

I mean, look at that tongue!

That is one big tongue. He should be a natural at this envelope licking.

I decided it was important to get my tongue ready for the work,
So I stretched it, by doing some some curls, first to the center,

then to the side!

But ya know what I found out, that glue tastes terrible!

So I made the lady lick the envelopes.

Hi, Murphey
Like you, I left that licking thing to my mom!
You two look great with your tongues ready to work!

Mom finally did a smart thing, she bought the envelopes you don't need to lick.

Frasier said...

Yeah...glue taste horrible !!
I stepped in a bug glue tray and tracked it all over new hardwood floors and tried licking it off too!

Hi Murphey and Reilly. Thanks so much for the Holiday card that you guys worked so hard on. Good thing you left the envelope licking to your mom. We tried to help with that part to, but one lick was enough for us. ISH! We'll be by again to keep up with all your adventures! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.
P.S. We see that you guys are Texas pups. If you would like to see some pictures of the snow we got stop by our blog.

Even my hooman girl can't stand that nasty envelope glue. Nasty nasty!

Knowing all of the work you guys (and your lady) put into your cards makes me feel a little guilty. Can't wait to see it in the mail!

Goober love,

Hammer said...

Dear Murphey and Reilly
Thank you very much for your bootiful Christmas card. Our mum has been demented just like your mum, Kathleen. You should receive our card any day now. I don't lick .. I just supervise and wave the paw at my mum. Someone has to try to keep her in line.
Love from Hammer

I got your Christmas card today. I love the picture on the card. It must have taken ages to get a picture to have all 3 faces smiling together.

No wonder I can smell you, you have helped to lick the envelopes. What about the stamps?


Lenny said...

Murphey, thanks for all of the effort you and your mom put into your nice cards. I got mine this weekend! Thank you!

That is a very impressive tongue, I must say.

Blech!!! We didn't lick envelopes either (anyway, we're too busy chewing pencils).

Mom finally used the old wet paper towel method. Boy were we relieved.
