Merry Christmas 2015!

Merry Christmas!

 We're very grateful this Christmas to have our boy Huck still with us.
He is nearly 10 months post-surgery, and going strong...!
Full of spirit... he amazes me every day.

He has taught me so much...
about life,
about gratitude
and fortitude
about making the best of things.

He has never shown self-pity.
Not even once.

We had a scare a couple of weeks ago, when we thought we were going to lose him.
We feared the cancer had returned,
but it turned out to be an awful abscess in his right rear foot,
making it extremely difficult for him to walk.  

It was a serious infection, and he could have died.
Dogs can live with 3 legs, but not 2...

Luckily he's getting better every day.
We're so incredibly relieved...!
He's such a dear, dear boy.
And his sister Clara has been such a sweet angel,
waiting patiently in the background while his needs took precedence.  

 Oh, Clara...  assuming her usual position
(snug as a big giant bug on a rug, snoring away).

We might not have snow around here,
but thanks to our wonderful Great Pyrenees, we still had a "white" Christmas!
 This is "snow" left behind from a brushing session...!

 Some people spin it into yarn, so we might check that out.
I could spin the fur into yarn and Boo could get busy with her knitting needles.
We'd have enough for a sweater in no time flat!

Merry Christmas to all!

And to all a Good Night.
