Merry Christmas

This is the first Christmas that the house didn’t contain Kyla. They had the house built and moved in in the middle of April 2002. Kyla came in late December 2002. The humans here decided to blow the Christmas budget on

– donations to the National Canine Cancer Foundation

– the rescue group that saved Kali

– the rescue group that saved me.

We each got a small stuffie that won’t last long.

There were two other presents under the tree.

One was from the lady who lost her dog, Sadie, on Monday night from an unexpected heart attack. Sadie was only five years old. Diane has been busy reading your emails and answering them. It’s been good for her. I hope she read this book before giving it to us because we lost Kyla


We won’t give it back to her because she wrote in it that it is in memory of Kyla.   Thank you, Blogville. It wasn’t a great Christmas for her but you guys made it a lot better than it could have been.  She was surprised that those whom she never met and probably never will were with her. That’s Christmas.

The other present was from Easy the weimaraner from France. It’s going up on the mantle in our place of honor.

It was sent on 12/12, a week before Kyla left us, and Kyla was 12. It is going to stay there all the time because it was a gift from the heart and not seasonal. It wasn’t part of a gift exchange-it just appeared in our mailbox on Christmas eve. Merci beaucoup, Easy.

We’ve been reading all your blogs, but have left few comments. Tomorrow, we open the packet that Kyla handed pawed me as she entered the Scottiemobile for her final trip.

It is still Christmas morning here and we’re waiting for (as the song goes and dyslexially altered for our guinea friends) some Christmas piggy fudding.

  3. This was our first Christmas without Daisy, but had fun remembering her….

    Great way of having Christmas, helping others. Sadie sent us a nice e-mail. Glad we could lift her spirits a little.

    Hope you’re having a Wonderful day!

  5. That was great to help out our furfriends in need. I know this Christmas is different…hope you can spend a comfy time together with cuddles and love. I’m glad La Poste brought the little passenger to you in one piece, think they should mention this rare fact in her annual balance,. Please give Diane a big hug from me, I’m still so sorry for her and Sadie…

    • She lives about 50 miles (80km) away and we haven’t seen her since Sadie crossed. Yes, she’ll get a big hug. She gave us one for Kyla last Friday. Thanks again-not only will we think of Kyla when we see it every day, we’ll think of you.

  6. We all took a long this morning after breakfast and talked about all the Scotties we’ve known and love. Kyla was a part of that conversation. We send (((hugs))) from California to you today.

    • Kyla was there. We made a trip from Arizona to Oregon and she’s been to Palm Springs, through LA and up I-5 on the way to Oregon. I haven’t made it there because it isn’t on the way to Montana where we went in 2013. Our reason for going to Oregon and Montana moved back to Oregon and we’ll be through California one of these days.

  7. I wish for you and your family is that each day may your hearts be light and love abound. Merry Christmas

  8. Hugs guys, and don’t worry about commenting and or reading blogs. Looking forward ti Kali’s first gotcha day! 🙂
