A Very Merry Christmas

It is a very Merry Christmas indeed!

Ayden was taken to his new Forever Home last night. He met his new family at the rescue offices. They asked Ayden to play with his new sister in the big play pen at the rescue. The two of them hit it off wonderfully. Ayden knows how to thrill an audience. What a wonderful gift, a new, warm home for Christmas.

Snickers is settling in with us. He is becoming the house clown. First he started taking all of our toys into his "safe place". He, and most fosters, use the corner table where the toys are stored as their hiding place. Snickers comes out and plays with us until we drop a toy, then he grabs it and runs back under the table with his prize. We don't think that is fair. We expect to get some fine new toys for Christmas.

Snickers discovered a package under the tree that contained peanut butter fudge. Guess what we all had for lunch?

Today when they were standing by the organ in the living room, Snickers discovered that by running between the organ bench and the organ, you can stand on the pedals and make a fine noise. Snickers ran back and forth across the pedals several times. He did not play any song yet, but he thinks that given some practice, he could do a fine rendition of Jingle Dogs.

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Mogley, Bella and Snickers

  3. Mogley, Bella, Snickers and the People,
    We want to thank you for the most wonderful Christmas present that we got this year; the news about Ayden. We were really bummed out that he wouldn't have a home to share for Christmas but now he has his own home. Do you know of any better Christmas present? Can we possibly have a better feeling this Christmas?...we think not. Youse guys have made the holiday for us and we want to thank you very, very much. Like we read in some book or saw on some TV program...God Bless You, Everyone.
