we now have a date.
mirra will be spayed on 6 January 2010.
her mom is a nervous wreck, so any Pawrayers you have for our sweetness would be greatly appreciated..
we'd like to also thank the team players in PAWticular for remembering mica's quest too over the HOWLidays and keeping hope afloat by way of donating dollars for research FUR our companions with IMHA or other immune-mediated disease..
those who face this illness know all too well how devastating it is.
Bless you for caring enough to try and help others.
many of mom's friends make a donation for mica's work in lieu of sending gifts.
it is greatly appreciated. now and then, we all like to be treated, right? sometimes, the best way is on behalf of others.
we'd also like to say we hope that many of our mates that have not heard from us in awhile know that you have been on our minds and in our hearts, and we'll do our best to catch up when we can.. we hope that no one takes it PAWsonally that you haven't heard anything..
those who have reached out to us have made a huge difference to us too. thank you for that effort too guys.
we wish everyone the best PAWsible New Year. You know who you are-(we sincerely hope) those of you who remain in our best thoughts and prayers.

Definition of Boxing Day:
What is Boxing Day?
Boxing Day is a day the higher classes gave gifts to the lower classes. Before or on December 25th people of similar class would exchange gifts to celebrate the Christmas season. Gifts were not exchanged with the lower class until the next day called Boxing Day. It is also known as St. Stephen’s Day.
Why is the holiday named Boxing Day?
The holiday is named Boxing Day because the tradition of giving gifts of cash, food, clothing and other goods to the less fortunate were placed into boxes for easier transportation. The goods were distributed based on the family needs and their services to the giver.
Who celebrates Boxing Day?
Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Britain, and other Commonwealth Countries celebrate Boxing Day on December 26th.
Purpose of Teaching the Origin and History of Boxing Day
Boxing Day officially began in England in the middle of the 19 century under the rule of Queen Victoria. However, many adults and children do not know the true meaning of Boxing Day and its reasons for celebrating. It was a day to thank the community for all their effort throughout the years. The maids, drivers and other service workers were thanked with gifts of food, money, clothing, and other goods. It is important to teach students how they can contribute to society and to understand not all families are able to provide for their families all of the time.
It was also the day local villages staged the finals fights of the local champion pugalists !
I am sending you the power of the paw. Mommy wanted to let you know that a handsome Belgian like you was taking money for Salvation Army Christmas Eve--and Mommy told him and his human about you. Flicka, it was nice to learn about Boxing Day. Mommy had never heard of it even though Mommy's family is mostly from the British Isles. Of course, they left there about 300 years ago. Perhaps that explains it. LOL
We are sending POTP to you all. Oh and Annie found a shiny beautiful rock just for you as a get well present.
If your Mom needs anything- please let us know-ok.
