Back on track!

I have so much to talk about... so I hope you have some left over hot cocco from yesterday's post!

I'll take hot cocco donations, please.
First, I forgot to give everyone an update on Christopher yesterday.  Christopher came home on Saturday and has been doing very well.  The swelling has gone down a lot and he's smiling and giggling again.  He's still in pain, but he's handling it well.  The little trooper he is!!!!  He doesn't go back to the doctor until early January... so he has to stay home until then.  We're all just so happy that he's recovering so well!

News #2:  I won a contest!!!!!!!!  I entered the contest over at Rudy's blog!  Here was my winning Christmas poem:

I broke a toy that Emmett had,
Somebody snitched on me.
I brought dirt into Mommy’s bed,
Somebody snitched on me.
I drooled my water on Daddy’s floor
Somebody snitched on me.
I chewed at the rug until it tore,
Somebody snitched on me…

I’m getting nothing for Christmas,
Sandy Paws thinks I’ve been bad.
I’m getting nothing for Christmas,
And this makes me very sad.

I played the bitey on foster sister,
Somebody snitched on me.
I let a growl out at next door Mister
Somebody snitched on me.
I knocked over Mommy’s plants,
Went in the bedroom and ate her pants,
Dug up the yard to find some ants,
Somebody snitched on me.

I’m getting nothing for Christmas
Sandy Paws thinks I’ve been bad.
I’m getting nothing for Christmas,
And this makes me very sad.

So next year I’ll be good, whatever I do,
Because if I’m not, my toys will be few,
Sandy Paws won’t even bring me two!
And, again, I’ll get nothing for Christmas!

I can't wait to get my prize!!! So cool that I won!  A big THANK YOU to Rudy for having the contest!  It was WAY fun and so cool to read everyone elses entries!

News #3:  Khyra picked my name in Sally's gift exchange!  So she dedicated a transport in my name!  SO cool! Thank you SO much Khyra!!! This was a very awesome gift!  You can check out her blog post on the doggies they transported!  There were some Brittney Spaniels - which, was my moms first dog! How cool!!!  And there were some pitty's!!! Also very cool!  And what's even cooler???  The transport was done on the same day I landed my paws in my home last year!  Helping out in transports like this are so important to Mom and the rescue!  That's how my News #4 got to me!  Speaking of which...

News #4!!!!!  I got a new foster sister!!! Her name is Bethany and she's a 6 month old Yellow Lab mix (maybe with some kind of cattle dog or border collie -her brothers looked very border collie, so who knows!)

Here she is!
Isn't she beautiful!
Bethany is very scared.  She was born in a shelter in TN and lived there until she came to NY and into Homeward Bound's Rescue!  That's when we got her.  She's so skiddish and very afraid of doors.  But, she likes to follow me around, so she's learning a lot about the good life she'll have from now on.

Come on, kid... I'll show ya how it's done!

Sometimes we have to pose for pictures... you'll get the hang of it
She'll stop soon....
You doing okay????
Here... I'll cover you up so you stay warm
Bethany came up to us on a transport just like the one Khyra's mom did.  It's people like her who volunteer their time and help this great dogs out of the high kill shelters and up to the safetly of a rescue!  Bethany's sister, Avery, was adopted on Saturday. She adjusted much better than Bethany has, but we know Bethany will come around!  She's a great dog to have and I overheard mom and dad talking about keeping her... HEHE!  BUT! There's a great vet lady interested in her, and I know my mom will be very happy if she goes to that home!  So, fingers crossed that it works out!  Because we like fostering... and if we kept Bethany, that would mean THREE dogs when we get a foster!!!! hehe!  Although we probably won't keep her forever, mom is going to be very careful with Bethany's adoptors, so if things don't work out with the vet lady, we might have her for a while.  Which is okay by me!!!

Since this post was long enough... I'll tell you about my recent adventures with Emmett tomorrow!

Later, dudes!
