Christmas Day in Indiana

We went to Indiana on Christmas Day to see daddee's mommee. She was sooo surprised to see us!

We also had a good time in the SNOW! We've had a few flakies at our house in Ohio, but not as much as they got in Indiana! WHEE!!

We also had a good time meeting this alien creature. We had never seen anything like him before! His name was Bill, apparently:

Christmas is....Fun??

Gus is very interested in the gifts....

This is as close as Waldo would get.  Turns out, he's afraid of boxes and wrapping paper!  He spent the whole night in the other room, away from the scariness.

Gus enjoys the gifts, though!

Waldo got a Waldo!  Here they are, posing together...

Run Free, Chloe Amelia

Today, Chloe Amelia crossed the Rainbow Bridge. She has been in mommee's family for 13 1/2 years. She was at the doggee daycare and got stomach bloat. Mommee's mommee was able to be there to hold her paw as she took her last breaths here on earth. She's now able to run free again, sniffing the grass with her little stubby tail wagging as fast as she can wag it. Mommee's sister Ashley (shown here in the photo) bought Chloe by saving her lunch money every day for a year. She took it to the breeder in a Tootsie Roll container.

We'd appreciate pawsitive thoughts for mommee and nana today.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Great Gift Idea!

A few months ago, I was contacted by a publishing house to review a couple of new books that they had coming out by the end of the year. I'm excited to say that I received them, and they are so great!

Here are some descriptions from

"In Dog Lover's Daily Companion Wendy Nan Rees shares her invaluable knowledge gleaned from 25+ years in the pet industry. She has created a unique, irreplaceable, easy-to-use—and inspiring—handbook filled with 365 helpful tips, easy-to-build projects, practical advice, and insight into the canine-human relationship for all dog owners to use every day of the year. This book will provide you with a lifetime’s worth of practical tips for living with your dog, no matter the breed. Wendy brings her expertise—and genuine love for dogs—to every topic under the sun needed to raise a healthy puppy into a happy adult dog."

"Cat Lover’s Devotional is a unique, easy-to-use, and inspiring handbook filled with a year’s worth of insight, helpful tips, and practical advice into the feline-human relationship for all cat lovers and owners. Whether you’re a cat owner yourself or someone who just loves all things cat, this book will provide you with a lifetime’s worth of ways to enjoy and appreciate cats, whether or not you have a house full of cats, or just a shelf full of books. The format of the book—a year-long, day-minder-type book—is not meant to be read cover to cover; rather, the book can fall open on any given day and still serve its designated purpose. Cat Lover’s Devotional will be completely indexed so readers in search of specific content, not just dabbling, will be able to navigate it."

The pictures are beautiful, and the text is easy-to-read. A great daily dose of dog and cat info for the pet-lovers in your life.

I'd like to offer these books to someone as a special holiday gift. To enter the drawing, just post a comment on this post, saying if you would like the DOG LOVER'S book or the CAT LOVER'S book. I'll put the comments into a drawing, which I will draw on December 11th! Feel free to share this drawing with friends--if you post on your blog and let me know, I'll put another entry in for you!
