Family and Friends on New Year's Eve


Tom
: On this, the last day of the year, we would like to focus on the two best things in our lives; our family and our friends. #1 has been away an awful lot over the past few months and we are so happy to have her home with us. She says she is planning to be mostly home in 2011!


So we can relax!


We of course remember always those who have left us. It has been almost two years since Sen-Chan went to the Bridge. Here he is, celebrating his first Christmas, still a kitten:


Our Yuu-Chan has been gone only three short months and we miss him so terribly still. Here he is at Christmas last year:


Not forgetting Ikkyu, whom none of us met but who filled #1's life with joy for 15 years before leaving for the Bridge in late August 2007.


Our friends, including all of you whom we have met through the Blogosphere, make up our extended family, and it is a joy for us to know you all. A special thank you goes out from us today to Clive, Murray and their family from whom we received a great package in the mail this morning!


I called Bibi-Chan over to help me check the contents out:


Then Tama came over to inspect the glitter balls:


And Sei-Chan got whapping!


As for me, I just love my toy!


Thank you, dear friends, for thinking of us and being so generous!

We would like to wish each and every pup, kitty and person a joyful New Year's Eve and first steps into 2011 filled with hope!

In a short time, you have become very important to us and each day we look forward to spending time with you. God bless you but we already know your home has been blessed. So, to lovely and kind #1, the glorious Chans, sweet, dear Tommy and charming Vidock, we send our sincerest wishes for the most wonderful yet. Our love to you at the turning of the year.

  25. Hi! We just started our own blog, and we're going around trying to meet other bloggy pets. We wanted to know how you all get along... especially the one dog! The two of us dogs get along great, but sometimes we scare Sammy-Joe, who is a cat. He feels a little outnumbered by us. What do you think? Happy New Year!

  28. Happy new year my friends, I know how much you must be missing the ones at the bridge. We feel the same here, it's hard not to miss them at this time of year.

    I'm wishing you all good health and much happiness in the new year, and thank you for your kindness and friendship.
