Post Christmas Post

My mom came back on Saturday. But before she could get home there was a call from a rescue friend with an emergency. My mom went to help and came home with two new doggies.

We have Dottie with the laser eyes. She is a wiggly, sweet girl.Look at the dots on that girl!! And here is Brinx. He looks like a sad, little lion. He has severe heartworms so he has to stay in cage rest for a long time. Right now he needs a good brushing. And he is already better--he is coming up to my mom for attention.Meanwhile, over Christmas my mom went to Smithfield, even passed by the ham (Gwaltney, Smithfield and Edwards) place. Here is a cool Victorian house.
Here are shops on the Pagan River. Pagan means 'little fish' in Indian language.This is St. Luke's, an old old church, like from the 1600s. That's my grandmom in the picture.Boats on the river were decorated for Christmas.
My grandmom had a money tree for her 2 girls. My mom got some cash!She bought me a wubba!! Here is Georgia checking it out, too. It's mine! All mine!
And more cards came today! From Homer in Rotterdam and Togo and Tagar in Malaysia, beautiful! Thank you all!

I practiced the command FOOT while my mom was gone and had to show her how good I was at doing it.

I got this great award from Kess and her mom. Thank you! The award, which was started in Portugal states that "This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships!" In other clearer words, "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

We are supposed to choose 8 but all our friends deserve it!

The Christmas card exchange was terrific. BUT, we know we need to start several months in advance to get ready for it. We would like to try making cards ourselves. My mom hopes to join the chat tomorrow night for New Year's Eve.

Hope you had a great Christmas!

Mom got a call about fostering an emergency pup too, but had to decline because we were traveling to my grandparents. Mom was a little upset, but I'm sure he got fostered by a nice family while waiting for surgery.

Poor Brinx, we hope he feels better soon, he looks so sad.

Dottie does have lots of dots, she looks a sweet girl.

We hope you all had a nice Christmas. We love those kongs, they are great.

We wish you and all your family a very happy new year.

Looks like you had a nice Christma. It is nice that you could take in the two doggies that need a place to stay. The one with the shinny eyes is kind of scary, be careful that he cannot put a hex on you.
Wishing you the best for the New Year 2009!

Where does one get a money tree? My mom is pretty good with gardening, do you think she could grow one??? I hope you have a very Happy New year!

It was nice of your mom to take in those 2 dogs for her friend. It's hard to think there will be more pets needing homes because of the economy.

We hope you have a great 2009!

Mango said...

I have to do that foot thing too. The things we do for our peoples!

Dotty is way cool. I hope Brinx gets out of jail soon.

Hi River,

Your mum's a real great person, taking in two dogs on top of caring for all of you. She is indeed a kind soul.

Meanwhile, we'll like to wish you a Happy New Year. May you and your family have a wonderful year ahead.

Sweet Licks,
Sugar & Posh
