Good and bad, happy and sad

I met Santa Paws this weekend!

I have been a little bit naughty so I tried not to ask for too much. :) Plus I look like a devil dog with those eyes! My mom was not Santa at the event; she got to be the "line coordinator" - boring!

I also got some sad news today. My old friend Tobie, who used to be my neighbor, is crossing the rainbow bridge today. She got bone cancer that progressed really quickly. Five years ago, she was diagnosed with salivary gland cancer, which went into remission, so I am glad she had those extra happy years with her dad and brother Stoney.

I wish I had more pictures of us together. She is on the left in both pictures.

Have you seen this video on YooToob? My mom and dad BOTH cried. It is a really nice doggie story.

I finished my DWB Christmas cards yesterday and put them in the mail! I hope you get them soon!

Lenny. Santa understands terrier behavior. We're sure he does. He'll bring you something on Christmas morning, we're sure.

We're sorry to read about Tobie. This has been a sad month for us. Lots of friends and friends of friends have left us. Thankfully, we believe they are romping together at the Bridge and we know that their memories will always be with us. Please send our condolences to Tobie's family. We know they are hurting. As are you.

Lenny...good to hear from you. We are humbled and in awe of your mom, who is working, going to school, and still ready to mail her DWB cards! We have our photos taken, so that is better than this time last year, but.....

We are sorry about Tobie, we hope she remembers all of us to Miss Snickers.

Dear Lenny,

We're always so happy when we see WIRE WISE pop up!

We're sorry about your friend, Tobie -- so many of our friends and acquaintances are newbies at the bridge -- they must be sharing lots of stories.

As for that video -- what an important message for us all!!

Our cards are almost ready to mail -- and we'll be looking forward to seeing yours!!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry
