Good news!

Sarah was adopted.  And lots of her friends, too.  Our shelter has been very busy this season.  I hope all the dogs and cats there are going to homes as wonderful as mine.

Or maybe slightly more wonderful.  My home could be a tad bit warmer, actually.  Nobody bothered to tell me that Washington is COLD!  Really cold.  And snowy.  I am not a winter dog.  I think I've mentioned this before.  I thought Kentucky was cold but I stand corrected.  Actually, I burrow under all the covers and shiver corrected.

But the holidays are coming so I shouldn't complain too much.  In fact, I've been composing a letter to Santa.

Dear Santa Paws:

I have been a very good girl this year.  I don't mean to seem immodest but I do believe I have been the best dog in the house this year and I hope you find it in your heart and toy sack to reward me for that.  I hope you know how much I love a plush toy that squeaks.  A squeaky toy or three might be a good way to reward me for the good dog I have been. 

But I don't want it to all be about me.  If there are toys in your toy sack for all the shelter animals that would be good too.  Or maybe some extra kibble or treats.  Or a cash donation?  Those shelters are always strapped for cash you know.  And I'm sure I don't need to tell you that everyone there has been very good and working very hard.

Thank you very much, Santa.  Merry Christmas!
