Just Snoozin' into a New Year


Alias, who was said to be "aggressive" is far from that.   He's a teddy bear.  He's a loving, funny, and hug-able pup.  He's a wonderful watch dog too.  He may be about 13 years old, but he sure doesn't act like it.  He loves my blankets.  In fact, the higher the pile it is, the more comfy he thinks it is.  He had his first Christmas with us and really liked those pig's ears he got.  I think he's enjoying his new home quite a bit.


Jesse and Tiger curled up together, and Winston was not far away.  Aren't they cute?


Happy New Year!

You say you think Alias is enjoying his new home quite a bit. Does this mean . . . you've found a way to work things so you can keep him??

Alias was definitely adopted into our family. It's Winston (the stray cat) that we are still not sure about yet. We still have to put him in a kennel at night, to keep the cats from fighting.

Oh dear. Please ignore my first comment of this morning. I KNOW you've adopted Alias and it's Winston, the stray cat, that you've been "fostering" and trying so hard to find a good home for. Blame my momentary brain malfunction on too much spiked egg nog (;o]) over the holidays. Or perhaps our cold, cold temperatures have frozen necessary cells in my noggin. (Or maybe I'm just loosing it.) My New Year's resolution will be to put brain in gear before putting fingers to keyboard!

Mama Pea, you cracked me up. Ha ha!
My 19 year-old, soon to be 20, and off to boot camp in the spring, is trying to con me to keeping Winston for her when she gets a new apartment - a year from now....sigh. Not sure about it yet.

They look so cute together. We have adopted all of our animals ( 2 dogs 4 cats). They make the best pets.

What a cute family of pets you have.
I think Alias has found the right people to love and to love him back.
