Happy New Year

I wish I could have stayed home today and enjoyed a day off, but retail is retail. I do work in a fabulous fabric shop, and enjoy my work, but it was dreadfully slow today, boring.

I am missing my dog today, this was the first Christmas without a dog since , well, I can't remember one without a dog. My 16 year old border collie died in March, and I am not ready to replace her yet. I have the two blonde monsters to keep me amused, but even though Trouble thinks he is a collie, it isn't really the same. Ever see a CAT try to strong eye someone? He is a hoot! She was his role model growing up, and has taken on many of her roles. He even sits at the table and begs, though it is more for attention than food. She was special, but aren't they all.

May we all have health and prosperity, good luck and increased skills in the coming year, but also lots of ART!

I'm so sorry about you losing your border collie this past year....these precious pets make their way into our families and into our hearts. I never realized that until we owned our cats, Chester & Thelma and now Ellie, the super dog. I hope you soon heal and will dive in again and open your heart to another pup...have a wonderful new year, Kim ~ xxoo, Dawn
