Hi everybloggie! How are you? I'm happy as my friend Happy. Take a peek at the award Happy presented me with. Thanks a million Happy. Way cool. Like it? Please take it,from me to you. I think all your blogs are Cool. Freezing.Tee,hee!

The Royal Mail van visited me this week too. Clock the new logo on the side of the van. Rightly Royal huh?

Dropped off a parcel for Eric Square Dog. Wait up, that's me! Parcel for me? From none other than His Majesty. King Simba. A Royal pardon? A Summons? A Knighthood? (Arise Sir Eric! )

Goosey Gander what was inside?

This socking big stocking! Filled with luscious lollipops. And a pawsonally signed card. Plus his likeness. Note what the label says Mother. For a GOOD BOY. Nuff said. Thanks a squillion Simba. What a lovely surprise. Simply pawfect. And organised. Dog-a-blogging impressive. Only November! Must of got his servants permanently at his Beg and Recall. Wonder how he did that? Leggededs haven't even got my cards ready.

I kissed Simba's paw print in humble homage and gracious gratitude. As a good subject should. (Hmmmm...think I can sell the Royal Paw Print on Mr.E.Bay?)

And paw-formed a deep Royal Bow before his presence. Well, as Royal as a subject wearing one sock can manage. Haaaaaaa!

Barking of socks, I'm off to the vets again next week bout my AL. ER. GEES. To determine the next step. Either a blood or skin test. I've been feline a bit better this week too. Hooray. Not so itchy-scratchy. Hope my good pal Archie with his AL.ER.GEES is feline better too. Please wag your wig by, wish him well.

King Simba was really down to earth and you showed him your excellent deep Royal Bow.
When I saw your title of the post, I thought you had a new male member borned into your family!
In the previous post, I loved so much the picture in that you quietly standing on a fall color leaves carpet, how peaceful!

Are you sure you're supposed to open Christmas presents in November?! It's not even Thanksgiving yet for goodness sakes. But those goodies were too delicious to wait for another 33 days!

Your pal,

I love the picture of you bowing low with your one-socked paw!


Agatha and Archie said...

Bae Bae said...

Oh you can bow so nicely. It's so pawsome of Simba to send those xmas gifts

~ Bae

Mango said...

Only one sock? Are your itchies better? Royal mail, huh? That's cool.


Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

We had no idea that you had your own special royal mail truck to deliver to you. Very Cool.
Congrats on the award and like some of our pals have said, are you allowed to open Christmas pressies already?!?
We will keep all our crossables crossed that those durn all er giees are going,going GONE!

Simba said...

So glad the royal Simba mail is working well lol. Gussens road is where the humans go to the Dr's. It is nearer the town then us. We are near the hospital.

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Wow, Eric, that Simba really knows how to shop! Great gifts for such a royal doggie! We hope your itchies are all gone soon!

Jake of Florida said...

Wow, Sir Square Dog, that has a nice ring to it!!

We're glad you're feeling a bit better -- and maybe soon you'll be all done with those pesky AL.ER.GEES. We wires seem to be prone to them. So far we've escaped -- we just hope those wooly sweaters Mom ordered won't make us too itchy.

Don't tell anyone but we heard her ordering boots too... Imagine, as though we wires are some kind of wimps.

Stay cool, pal, and come visit often. We love your blog.

Jake and Just Harry

(And yes, we are going to see Gussie and Teka -- and on the way back the whippet waggle. Pretty fun, eh??)

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Hi my sweet Eric!

Oh my...we got Simba's cardie today....Mumsie hasn't even attempted to print out the addresses yet for our cards...organization is NOT her middle name! are ya comin' to the States with ur two leggeds??? Oh Eric...we could have SUCH a fab time! We saw where ur Peeps are gonna be stayin' Toffee comin' to NYC???? We saw her new she's racked up quite the little bill on it overseas!!

We all had a blast in the Big Apple at Asta's Mommi's Barkday Pawty...oh...Mumsie was a COMPLETE NUDNIK at this post tea place...I was simply mortified....go see our blog...and um...there's sort of a STAIN pic on it...I am so angry at my brothers....Asta is going to be very upset!

Love and kissies...Lacie

OH>>>Stan has this hooge hotspot on his face and he's been scratchin' like mad! Think he's been hangin' round urs and Archie's bloggie too much!

William Tell said...

How cool, having blue-blooded friends in high places send you their pawprints! Glad your itchies are better, too.

Happy Tails,
William Tell

happy said...

What lovely presents from Simba! Oh I love your royal bow, Eric!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley said...

Allergee smallergee...your foot looks great in a sock! I think that you should totally bring the sock into style! If any four legged human can do it, it would be you! Hehehehe!

I hope every thing comes back alright from the vet. I would give your socky a kiss if I could. Instead I will have to send over some of my super intense ESP your way. If you feel a shock or something...don't worry, it's just my ESP!

Gobble Gobble!

Mr. T-Bone Beasley

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Of course I went to New York, Eric...who do ya think was takin' the pix?? We had told Mumsie we were going to be very busy in da Burgh that weekend doin' more work for homeless rats...she didn't tell us she was going to New York...she said she was goin' big apple pickin'...she wasn't pleased to see us there, but after three of my as-yet-untasted-by-Mumsie smoothies, she was rather she had an attitude adjustment and thought it was wonderful we were all present. I absolutely think you should sneak over in ur peep's luggage or perhaps charter your own jet...can't you borrow one of the corgi's?

You and Asta could "do the town" up nicely, I'm sure....

Yes, Mumsie did try to read her tea leaves,...they said something like "use the strainer, next time, moron!..." That was her first "cuppa" without a of those wretched tea bags....Auntie Ami looked like she was bout to 'splode, but she managed to contain it...thank Dog Asta and I were far enuff away we could laugh hysterically without being noticed...


Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Happy Thanksgiving to an adorable friend.
I'm blessed to have friend like you and I'm so thankful for that.

Toffee said...

Oh Eric!
I am sorry to hear that those Lurgies are still bothering you! Would you like me to lick your, er, paws for you?? You poor boy!

That is a truly pawsome package you got from Simba. We received a nice card from Simba and could not BELIEVE that Simba was so "together"...I need to get on my pawrents to help me address my cards eeeek!

the 4 Bs said...

hi Eric, that's so cool that you got a christmas present in november. that Simba is on top of it!

good luck at the vetties, finding out about those darn al.ur.gees. itching is such a bother.


Eric and Flynn said...

Concats on your award Eric.
That's a great present you got from Simba, and you did a very good bow in thanks for it.

Stanley said...

Hey, Eric!

Simba has quite the staff ~ his was the first Christmas card I received too.

I like the looks of that rawhide sockie. Let us know if you will be needing any assistance with that.

Sorry to hear that Al has paid you a visit. Maybe he has gotten the hint that you'd rather not have him as a houseguest any longer and has left the building. I hope so. He makes me itch!

Sorry we've not been visiting recently. Blame our girl who has been spending too much time on her lazy patootie! We're back now, though.

Goober love & healing goob smooches,
