Peace on Earth

“And what about other planets?” Bernie says. “Any idea of the number of stars in just our own galaxy?” I love when Bernie talks like this, but what it means – I’ll leave that to you.

Merry Christmas to everybody, plus happy Festivus (to Diane B.), and great holidays all around.

    Is that like a barber pole? Could a member of the canine nation haul it around? (The bigger the stick, the more exhilarating the retrieval process.)

    It's raining here, and warmer, so all of the snow is very slowly being turned to slush. Great fun was had in our muddy back yard– Henry didn't even want to come in!

    Merry Christmas everyone!!! Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Oh please, let it snow. (That's not gonna happen here-I live in the state just east of the state Chet and Bernie live in) Chet's new book will be arriving in the bookstores soon. That is as exciting as snow!

    Merry Christmas! (Happy Hanukkah, Happy Bodhi Day, Merry Kwanza, Hooray for the Winter Solstice! (May spring come soon!) and Happy Festivus to the rest-of-us.)

    There is a website for some company in Milwaukee – “a city known for its very high strength-to-weight ratio” – that sells festivus poles. who’d a thunk it?

    Season’s greeting to all. Just finished Dog on It and loved it, but why isn’t Chet neutered? After those horrible scenes in the animal shelter — very sad and all too true — the book ends with Chet running off to perhaps make more unwanted puppies. Maybe you’re saving this lesson for another book? Here’s my picture; I’m neutered and very happy! (My mom typed this for me.)

    Happy Whatever Nation within Nation and all human cohorts! We piled all the paper (recyclable) and boxes in the middle of the floor and let the pups in! They had a blast. Clean up took longer than usually, but we laughed for quite awhile.

    Five of the puppies went to new homes before the 25th and everyone goes to a new home by the 28th. Just as they really start using those needle teeth.

    Chet after that Mexico incident, I hope she doesn't bring you the pups to raise.

    Here's a picture.

    Merry Christmas and all those other those other December Holidays to Chet, Bernie and all! (I can never remember all those names) Here’s a picture of me in my new sweater. Mom says it makes me look handsome, but I think it’s just silly, it was alredy warm in the house too! Melanie, I like the photos of those Newfie pups, looks like they know how to have a good time! I meet a great Newf at our local dog park. It was my first time in the stream and he was looking out for me, what a pal!

    Melanie, Cosmo….great photos. Way too cute. Love them. Cosmo, you are very handsome in that red sweater.

    Diane, Your pup is one beautiful dog. Standard poodle? Great fur.

    Thank you, Ivy. Yes, Blue is a standard poodle. My husband and I are allergic to dogs, so we get our dogs from Poodle Rescue. We can't believe that all the sweet, smart, loving dogs we've had over the years were given up. That's why I'm on the spay/neuter soapbox. I also volunteer at our local animal shelter and it breaks my heart how many wonderful dogs end up there. We don't kill them unless they're vicious or very ill, so we're always growing!

    Thanks for the kind words Ivy! Diane, thanks for all the hard work you do for my kind. My family rescued me from a shelter too, and now I'm a therapy dog! This picture of me in on our first day of work. I have a great story of how I came from GA to CT, and my Mom is writing and illustrating a book about me! If you're interested check out our website. I'd love for all you guys to sign our guestbook and read some of my stories (I have two entries, more to come). I of course am neutered too (and very happy). Hopefully Chet will be sometime, it really uncomplicates your life, especially when you have lots of she dogs in your neighborhood! I hope all your dogs find homes!

    That first picture of Cosmo in his red sweater is priceless — it's obvious what he's thinking! Therapy and service dogs rule. I didn't see your URL but I'd love to visit your website.

    Diane, I think if you click on Cosmo's name, above the post his Mom typed, it will bring you to the website.
