Merry Christmas To All

My dear friends, it has been a dog’s age since I’ve written and I apologize for the delay. I haven’t been on for quite awhile so I’ve been missing all that’s been happening in your lives. I hope that you are doing well and that all are healthy and happy in your families. Please let me know how you’re doing!

In the meantime, I’ll give you an update in case you’re interested. Our dearest American Bobtail cat Tiffy passed away this summer. She had been an integral part of our family and a beloved fur therapy kitty. Honestly, we were all quite devastated when she began to decline in health, but it was age-related. Tigger, our rescue cat, stayed the course with us, snuggling when we were teary and making us laugh when needed.

We started talking about getting a puppy as my one son has wanted one since he was little. But it had to be the right one for us and even though he begged for a husky puppy, I wasn’t convinced that we would be able to handle that type of high energy. I always believe that animals come to us (and we to them) with the right timing. So I’d like to introduce Buster, our golden retriever puppy who is 11 weeks old. We got him right before Christmas so that everyone would be home to bond with him and to let him acclimate to our home in the best way possible.


If you had asked me in September if I were getting a Christmas puppy, I would have giggled, but here I am. Life always gives us opportunities to increase our joyful quotient and ours was in the form of a Golden Retriever puppy. So without further ado, welcome to our family Buster!

Shine On!

  1. Ah Yvonne, those eyes are magnets for the heart. It is a powerful thing to connect with that magic. And I have indeed missed your magic that always speaks to the heart too dear lady. I hope you and family are well and most certainly That you have had a very beautiful Christmas as well. At least one present can wag his tail at a moments notice, all for a smile. Merry Christmas my friend, may it be full of love 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋 🎅🏽 🦌 🕊 🎄 🎁 ⛄️

    • Your kindness and caring is always appreciated Mark and I wish the same for you and your family. I pray that this response finds you healthy and happy with an abundance of blessings wished for your 2022! Buster is a blessing in disguise with tons of work involved, but much love which outweighs the work. Bonding my sons and me even more than our sweet cat Tigger (because he’s so much more work)! A wish fulfilled for my older son who has wanted a puppy his whole life – a learning curve for sure as he had no idea how much work a new baby in the house is – but we are all doing it together which helps! Big heartfelt hugs to you as always Mark! xoxo

      • Thank you Yvonne, blessings received with the love they were given. As your new little tail heart wagger will be doing, spreading the love in those eyes to all 😂
        Love and hugs returned also dear lady, have a Happy New Year and may you find you a little more with that love too 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋 ✨ 🎇 💥 🌹 🍾 🍸 🌈 🕊 💫
