So there you have it - our official International Goody Exchange list. To recap the rules:
  • get in touch with your partner soon and exchange co-ordinates;
  • the cost of your package is up to you but the average is about $15;
  • do your best to mail it so that it reaches its destination the week of June 9. If we see that there are several of you who haven't received your package by then, we will extend the deadline. We'll play that by ear;
  • hustle over to the pet store and start shopping, and
  • have fun!
After pulling an all-nighter preparing the Exchange, I am now going to curl up on a nice, comfy pillow and go to sleep. I will be dreaming of goodies, both bought and received ... zzz

I was so thrilled to get this award from my pals, Butchy and Snickers. Thank you! I love it, and I appreciate it so much.

I'd like to pass it on to some of my other friends:
Moco, Dawson and Foley, Peanut and Flash, Gunner and Ginger, Crikit and Sparky.

Speaking of awards, I sent this special award to Beasley for helping me organize the Exchange. He has worked tirelessly and did a fantastic job.He definitely deserves a l6 oz. surloin and good nap on a featherbed. However, this is the best I can do ... !!

Bease, you rock, buddy.
