Douglas, Fizzy and Monsieur Bob

Well every bloggie,

We have been bursting with excitement - we looked at our calendars and it has been over a month that Douglas has been in his new home - and guess what? They love him! So he is officially adopted! Yep, he has found his forever home - he lives with a lovely family and a girl Airedale named Lulu. They have been on camping holidays already - here he is sitting in the front seat with his sister - they were eyeballing squirrels. Sadly they had to share their campsite with the beasts - how unfair, we know!

Here he is with her - at a campsite - still not squirrel free!

Here he is with one of his many new toys...

We are so happy for him - and we confess - a little sad too - he is such a sweet natured enthusiastic boy - how could you not get attached? But he is where he is happy - and that made a great Thanksgiving and Christmas all rolled into one for D and C.

Now, we went to the Fox terrier Rescue and I was not amused! I still get a little worried I am being left - so I stuck by the exit or my humans - no one was going to get past me! But D explained we were there to meet Fizzy and Monsieur Bob! These two rescues came from a family whose circumstances had drastically changed and they couldn't keep them anymore. Well, Fizzy is a sweet girl - loves playing with toys - really dainty . Here is Fizzy with her new toy...(D and C brought a toy for each of them)

Bob is a very typical (boy) Wire! He is BOUNCY BOUNCY BOUNCY! He kept playing and jumping and bouncing the whole time - most of our photos are blurry - here is one of the few still moments we captured of Bob (or Fizzy for that matter)...

He kept tying to steal Fizzy's toy - he had a toy - but Fizzy's toy always appealed to him that bit more...She kept it away from him for quite a while...(the girl has got some pretty good moves)

Well, she was right to argue with him - look what he did to the doggie stuffie!!!!! Who knew he was such an accomplished stuffie surgeon?

So we gave her the other toy - a big squeaky daisy - notice Bob peering over her shoulder?

Eventually she took a break to have a drink of water and look!!!!

But how can you get angry at such a sweet face?

They are really good together and just love having fun. D and C just loved them both - they need to find a home that will take both of them and has the time for them. There are a few families interested - hopefully they will find their furever home soon.

Don't you love their woolly coats ? They came in with their winter attire and they will be 'groomed' soon - but we like them better this way - they look like teddy bears.

Now we want to wish every doggy, kitty and beasty a very Happy Thanksgiving - we would love to be with you enjoying the celebrations and food! D says please send Pumpkin Pie!

We also are very moved by an award that has been given to us from two wonderful pals of ours. But we will post that separately - big licks

Remembering Miss Snickers

So many wonderful tributes have been made to our dear friend Miss Snickers, we weren't sure if we could find the right words, but we felt it important to let her family know how much she meant to us and this community. Although our world is a 'virtual' one - our sense of loss and sadness is very real. We never met snout to snout - but we did meet heart to heart. We are truly thankful.

Our love and support to her family,

Diana, Sally and Paddy
