Payton's Pink Present

I am perturbed in this photo. Notice the mouth.
Mind you, I LOVE the GORILLA!
I got a PACKAGE in the mail the other day. It was from my FURiend with wings, Angel Payton. Well, it was from her Mom who was acting in proxy for Angel Payton. See, Payton crossed the Rainbow Bridge earlier this year despite WINNING the battle against PDE. Not a day goes by that I don't think of Payton in some way because she was THAT SPECIAL to me. She was strong as they come and quite a fighter. She helped PUSH PDE research forward with her stalwart battle against it and SET BACK the advance of PDE itself by never giving in to the HORRIBLE disease (Click here for more information about this dreadful disease that attacks PUGS).

Anyhow . . . I received this package from Payton and when I opened it, there was the softest most sweetest GORILLA toy with a SQUEAKER that I have ever laid eyes on. You can see from the photo above just how adorable it is. I immediately HAD to play with it . . .  But here is the unusual part - I played with it for almost an hour straight! And the next morning, as soon as I got up, I started playing with it as well. This has gone on for quite a few days now. The toy is in my bed so I also sleep with it during the day when I am home alone. Well, not alone anymore because I feel like ANGEL PAYTON is right there with me.

So thanks Payton's Mommy and Daddy for sending me such a special and heartfelt present. I cannot wait to meet you this coming SUNDAY at Pug Sunday in San Francisco. I am gonna give you the biggest hugs and kisses ever.

This is what I WANTED to do before - NOT
pose for some dumb picture!

Hi Noodles!

Rupert is going to be at SF Pug Sunday too, and can't wait to meet you and Payton's people!

Tamara + Rupert said...

Noodles, that is one SWEET toy! Those were also some very SWEET things you said about Payton. I miss her very much, too.

You're gonna love Payton's 'rents - they are really cool and know how to make a pug feel like a rock star. I got to meet them in the fur last Christmas. I hope you all have a blast at Pug Sunday. I can't wait to see some photos.

Aww, what a meaningful prezzie you have! I'm sure it makes you feel very comforted. I don't blame you for being perturbed that you had to pose instead of play!
