hope everyone had wonderful holidays! Mine were very busy visiting you!
But I'm not complaining because I had a blast with the fluffy buddies
I spent time with. Christmas Day wasn't much fun driving-thankfully I
have my 4x4 & I had no trouble. One good thing about working on the
holidays is there isn't much traffic on the road! Then I would come home
& in my mail were lots of cards & notes from all of you! So many!!
You guys-you all spoiled me with my gifts & warm wishes & I thank
each & every one of you with all my heart!
read an interesting article in the December 2002 issue of Dog & Kennel
magazine- The ASPCA has a new phone in line
with "recorded information on more than 125 medical, behavioral,
nutritional & a variety of other topics". And it's Free! It's
called ANI-MED (tm). You can get a free copy of the topic directory by
calling 610-254-7963. You can also access the information on their web
site www.aspca.org .
We added to our family already for the new
year! I'm currently visiting with Jody
while mom-Kim is in China! Not to get excited tho because she is there
working & she told me not a lot of time for site-seeing & not
the best places in China either. Jody who is 14 ! is having fun staying
safe & warm right in his own home.
I only see him in the AM & he has other friends who then visit him
thru out the day. I started Shelby
this past weekend. Maureen warned me ahead of time that Shelby was not
very nice to strangers coming into his home & I may not want to take
on the job! Well- as Shelby & mom now joined our buddy family &
will be reading the newsletters she will soon see that I am quite used
to kittys like that-- eh hem- Max,
& others will attest too! Besides-it turned out Shelby is not that
bad since I was already petting him on my 2nd visit! :) As long as we
are on the subject of the
not so co-operative kittys--Mickey!
Yes, another new one who is diabetic & wanted to make it extremely
clear to me that no one could give him his shot better than dear dad-John.
Not to worry tho- I managed to get every injection he had coming without
being torn to shreds! It took some coniving on my part but we got it done!
We have another Rotty joining our family- a 2x a week walk I take with
Sabrina! I've only been walking her for about a month but she sure knows
my name & when I get there she is bouncing & ready to go! Her
mom Bernice is home
when I go walk Sabrina so I have someone I can share our adventures with
right away. hehe Penny added a kitty to her
& Shaq's home! Fozzy
was found wandering around her neighborhood & she tried to find his
people but no one claimed him so he has a new
I also got a note from Arlene that her Freddy
passed away. But she already went & got 2 older kittys Lili &
Lizzi !! How nice that adult cats found a great home.
Well wishes go to Hollie who had back surgery-ouch!
I saw her a couple weeks
ago since I was going to give Yummy her fluids while Hollie was in the
hospital. Both Yummy & Hollie are doing
wonderful! Hollie also announced sheis getting married ! & then I
found out so is Lucky's mom Sherry! Best wishes for Sherry & Walt
& Hollie & Steve!! And recovery wishes to my Mom who has been
in the hospital since 12/9. So to those of you who may have had to wait
a little longer for a return phone call or email-I apologize. I've been
stretched a little thin with everything going on with holidays & hospitals
& working! Hopefully everything will settle down soon. Because of
all this I seem to be having a mental block on anything to write for this
months newsletter so sorry that this is short. But I will end now &
get this posted on the web before the 2nd half of the month passes me
Stay warm everyone! Looking foward to seeing
you all in this upcoming year!
