New Year - New Beginnings

Out with the old in with the new. That's what Mom is doing. The divorce finally came through and now Mom has a whole new perspective on life. Raffles, Maleka and I are so happy for her. We always keep an eye on her from the Bridge. We know Priscilla and that imp Quigley are doing a great job keeping her in good spirits. Dad still has a lot of stuff at the house but that should be out soon and Mom won't have to deal with him any more. She can get on with her life. Grandma now lives upstairs so with her and the Bostonians, Mom is always busy.

Sad news about our old friend Chewtoy (our cat brother). He's been on chemo pills for a month and blood work this weekend showed that it has not helped. The protein levels have gone even higher and kidney stats aren't good. The doctor suggested another medicine but Mom says she just can't put Chewie through this any more. Chewie is not in any pain at this point and it's very stressful on him and Mom to give him medication, so they talked it over and decided to let Chewie live the rest of his live in peace and tranquility for as long as he has left, without giving him medicine that probably won't work anyway and will stress him out. Chewie is such a mellow boy and now he runs when he sees Mom because he's afraid she's come to stick pills down his throat. He ran this morning but Mom went to him and explained there will be no more pills and he started purring and rubbing against her again. Who knows, he could have another Christmas in him.

Maleka is still on her Husky trek. We miss her but know she's having a grand time with her friends. We get word of her once in awhile so we know the pack is having quite the adventure. We heard yesterday that they were chasing rainbows.

Raffles and the gang and I had a wonderful Christmas with all our friends. The boys did a surprisingly great job on the decorations for the party and pretty good on the entertainment although the Miss Christmas Beauty Pagent took us girls by surprise. Guess who were among the judges. You got it. Pongo, Raffles and Striker. At least level headed Striker was there to keep them in line. But everyone had an amazing time. Us gals baked for weeks on our new bone dishes. The Boys loved them and of course want us to make more. We told them that old parable about "give me a fish and I can eat for a day, but show me how to fish and I can eat forever" I think it loses something in the dog translation but I think you catch my meaning. So us gals are going to show the boys how to make these dishes. We're pretty excited to see how they do. Arianna has been giggling all morning thinking about the comedy that will almost definitely abound. I'm thinking I have to put my paws on a camera so I can get photos of the guys in aprons. Not publishing those in our newsletter would get me a lot of things done around the place. I am devious.

Well gotta run. Have to go check on Raffles.

Love you Mommy.
