The Joy of Surprise Giving & Kindness

One of my favorite sayings is "Good things come in small packages". I've always thought it meant me when I found my Mommy, but it has many meanings. Last week it had a more literal context for me in the form of a package.
Choco is so pretty & has a warm smile. (Photo from her Instagram account)
My friend Choco, a beautiful chocolate lab girl, and her Mommy make pretty collar bows for dogs and cats. Choco is called the "world's friendliest dog" and with good reason. She is SO sweet and friendly. We became fast friends, especially since we both love our Mommies, we love smiling and we love pretty girl stuff. One day clear out of the blue (but during an especially tough tail nub pain time) Choco asked if I liked pink. Well of course I said yes! She asked if she could send me something. Next thing I know, a special delivery from Canada came in the mail. I was SO excited!
When I opened it up, there was the prettiest handmade card and a pretty little wrapped package. It put an instant smile on my face!
Mommy and I read the card together that Choco sent. It was very kind of her and her Mommy to send such a nice surprise. I like doing things for others, because it just feels good to make others feel special. Well this time I was the one who felt special!  No matter who you are, it's always nice to get an unexpected gift.
Inside the wrapped gift was a lovely collar bow with pink sequin and silky ribbon for me to wear.
It certainly made me feel special and look pretty. Thank you sweet Choco for my wonderful collar bow! Every time I wear it I will think of you my friend.
As you can see, Mommy took some photos with her good camera and some with her phone camera. Here's a special collage Mommy made from all the photos she took with her cell phone.

Now, I can't wait to return the favor. Why don't I start with getting sweet Choco more friends. Just visit her Twitter and Instagram pages to become a friend, and make sure to tell her I sent you.
