Chris, Teddy and I wanted to send you both Christmas wishes and to say thank you again for putting Teddy in our lives. He is quite the boy and keeps us both occupied as we continue to work from home during this crazy year. He's learned about work breaks and definitely understands when it's lunch time! He also has the knack for deciding that it's time to play with his squeakiest toy right when either of us start a conference call! Course that has only helped him become well known throughout our business community.
Here's Kimmi in some festive garb...She frequently goes outside with our cat, Molly. They're best buds. She definitely can hold her own with Huckleberry.
Sharon wrote about Chance: "Speaking of blessings, that's what I consider Chance to be. He has such a sweet, affectionate, calming spirit and we couldn't ask for a better dog. Chance seems very happy and content. I don't know if I've ever gotten so attached to a dog so quickly before, he's exactly what I need right now with all the chaos going on in the world. I hope he feels the same about me and about Jim, who is equally attached to him. He loves the yard, and the numerous squirrels who make their home there have to be on guard at all times.
Jane wrote about Greta: "Everyone is doing great! ...especially GRETA! she got your hug and kiss and "good girl" many times over. She is having a ball with this cold weather, our property has a lot of land on it, so she is learning the layout on a leash, and then when we are about 50 yards from the house, I let her off her lead and she runs straight towards home, twirling and jumping and really REALLY going fast. Then she'll stop let me catch up with her, and off she goes! Her coat is nice and furry so she keeps warm, plus I have a fleece lined winter jacket for her...She now sleeps with Joe on the couch!!! doesn't run away from him, and is considering the idea, he may be an ok human. We love her bunches. She fits in with us perfectly. We also take our time getting to know people. Greta the Supriser! lets us see more of her personality every day. My laundry is in the basement, so she sits and waits at the top of the stairs for me, and grudgingly lets me back up. Our little silly game. Plus all our other goofy stuff. Lots of car rides, walks, treats."
Judy sent this photo of her Izzy, who recently had a 14th birthday.
I heard from Molly Anne about Luna (who is Biddy's mom). "We take a walk in the woods every other day & Luna gets a 'play day' at a small day care. She gets personal attention and is happy to go. I groom her myself all the time now. Every time she gets a compliment (often!), I parrot back what you said, 'she's beautiful on the inside and the outside"--so true!"
Sally sent pictures of Ginger - before the snow and after the snow!
Here is part of a card from Kathleen that features their Beau.
