A friendly wager

During the first college football game of this season, Kat and Mom's Oklahoma State University Cowboys were playing Sitka and Cornelia Marie's University of Georgia Bulldogs. After studying the legality of sports betting, we determined that dogs are allowed to bet on sporting events, so we made a wager with Sitka and Cornelia Marie that if the Cowboys won, they would buy us an order of Happy Hearts and if the Bulldogs won, we would buy an order for them.

During the first part of the game, things were not looking that great for the Cowboys. Kat was pretty depressed. At half-time, Kat barked a lot at the TV and apparently the Cowboys received the message because they came out strong in the second half and won the game. Kat was so excited for her team and I was so excited for some Happy Hearts!

Our cookies arrived recently and boy, was I glad!

We ordered some of the new summer flavors. Watermelon and ginger. I have to say I give them both a big paws up.

Mom tried to get some good pictures of me eating, but you can see how well that worked.

She did get a good picture of Kat eating one of the squirrels.

I should also mention that with this order, I have become an official Happy Hearts taste tester. I am really excited to be able to be recognized in an official capacity for my favorite hobby -- eating!

So I have to give a big thanks to Sitka and Cornelia Marie for the cookies, Happy Hearts for the cookies too, the Cowboys for winning the game, and to Kat for being a fan of the Cowboys. It is handy to have a sister who's a fan of a good football team. Dad and I are in for a depressing season, I'm afraid.

Woo, Steve. We made a similar bet with the Bumpass Hounds and Kitties over the Army-Navy game. I fear we're going to be more in Sitka and CM's collars rather than yours and Kat's. Woo.
Luv,
Dave

Any wager that involves Happy Hearts is a good wager

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey Woos,
Yeah, we've got a little happy Hearts bet going with some Sibes in the Army on the Dec 12th classic between USNA and USMA. We expect that we'll be enjoying Happy Hearts while Storm, Dave, Zim and Ammy are just eating their hearts out. Congratulations on the Cowboys beating up the Bulldogs, but isn't that like cruelty to animals?

Great way to get some Happy Hearts cookies! Congratulations on being an official taste-tester. Khyra sent me over to wish you and Kat a very Happy Birthday!

Hey Woos,
WOW! Fast forward to the Army-Navy Game. We're betting with the Ao4 guys; they look a lot like you two, Kat and Steve, except for twos of them is red stead of black. Well we also bet a Happy Hearts order. Navy also didn't do to well in the first half,didn't score at all and Army had a field goal. Just like Kat, our dad barked at the TV during halftime and Navy got his nasty message cuz they overcam the 3 to nutting score an wonded the game 17 to 3. Since they game was for another 2 months yet we haven't got our cookies yet. We like betting.
