Romping through 2010

It was a good year but where did 2010 go? Seriously... As I get older the faster it goes.

We had a new furkid join our family in May, Simon or "Mr. Simon" as all the children now call him. He has fit into the family like a glove.

We lost a very good friend in Sept, George I think of you every day. Don't worry we are looking after Lois and Molly!

There was new life for our family.
We were blessed with a beautiful granddaughter in November, Danika Jade Andrews. Two other great nieces and 1 great nephew all since August.

The furkids are all doing well. Chauncy had surgery to remove a tumour on his foot that turned out to be non-cancerous. Raider continues to rock our world and Addison's has not slowed him down one bit. Caley our senior lady is just perfect and wants everyone to know it. Tramp at almost 20 yrs. is sleeping a lot more but still eating and drinking fine. She put Simon in his place last week when he was annoying her.. Was kind of good to see her a little feisty.

Here is hoping next year will be as kind to us.

Christmas Eve with family and friends

We have a long standing Christmas tradition of gathering for a lobster dinner on Christmas Eve.  There was plenty of lobster as you can see.. and enough left for a nice yummy chowder.

Aselin had her first Lobster last year and now you cannot get it out of the shell fast enough for her. She is an Andrews for sure... Now we just need to work on her Daddy and get him to eat some, as you can see he sadly has "steak" on his plate.

Lois joined us this year and after dinner Aselin has her helping to put a puzzle together. Aselin told Lois she did a "good job".
Not all our family was able to be here, this year miles separate us but "miles do not separate our hearts". Love and miss you Maddie, Steven, Desmond and Danika, see you in March!!

    Hug the ones you love!

helping paws..

Well I finally decided I better get some wrapping done, I mean it is the 23rd. I got everything together, figured I would get it done quickly while the pups were all asleep in the living room.. HA... this first picture is what I found when I went to find tape.. Two dogs and one cat.. well I figured it would be ok if I could just slide Simon over a little bit..

  Simon of course had other ideas..

Ok he wants to help pick out the paper, he likes the red patterned stuff.

Well you wanted help!

Could you just wrap somewhere else please I want to take a nap and you are annoying me.

Shelter Pups

It has been a crazy couple of weeks at work, so busy in the evening I haven't been able to catch up at all.

Emma and I volunteered at the SHAID animal shelter at their Open House and she met the rats and the bunny and she was in heaven. I however left the rats along and stuck to the pups...
As I said it has been busy but today I took time out after work to go to the shelter and walk Gus.. I know I forgot my camera so no pictures. I met Gus at the Open House as he had just come in. He was rail thin, each rib stuck out with nothing but skin covering them.
He is such a nice boy. He was neutered on Tuesday so will soon be ready for a new home. He walked so nicely on the leash, no pulling at all. He will make someone a wonderful companion.

There is a little beagle there named Miles and I spent some time playing with him.. His owners gave him up because they said, "he was a handful". The only handful he is, is when he is sitting on your lap and you are cuddling him.. he is a wonderful little boy..

It was nice to take some time and just play with some pups that need some loving... I feel better tonight for it... I hope the pups enjoyed it as much as I did..

When I came home my crew all gave me the once over, and then after they ate really gave me a going over.. I think they felt I had been out cheating on them..
