New Year & More

We hope everyone had a good New Year's.  We pawtied like it was 1999!

Stanley lasted longer than me cuz he's bigger so he can drink more.

I think it's impawtent to know your limits.

And now that we're headed into a new year, we just want to acknowledge 2 people who were unable to make the journey with us.  Sarah Ricca and Frankie's & Ernie's dad Butch both went to Heaven right after Christmas.

It's a sad thing to happen and Frankie & Ernie decided to wait until the howl-i-daze were over before saying too much. Butt we bet the minute those newest angels got their wings that they flew over to the Rainbow Bridge and are playing with all the doggies and kitties there! Frankie & Ernie are crossing their paws that Madi is NOT twerking in front of their dad cuz they would be mortified! (We don't worry about Sarah cuz she is used to that stuff.)

Butt anyway, in the meantime . . .

Murphy & Stanley

Dearest Murphy and Stanley
Thank you for letting everyone know about the passing of Sarah and Butch. I am very very sorry. I hsve very fond memories of meeting Butch, FnE and Lana in 2016. B and I were at the same Red Roof Inn. We had several nice meals w them lots of evening conversations.
I recall all the wonderful smile boxes Sarah made for bloggers for different celebrations.

Knowing that crazy Angel Madi I can assure you there was dancing on the blouevards and streets OTRB. I CAN only hope she remembered to be a LADY with moderate twerking...but I DOUBT IT‼️💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼
Hugs Cecilia

Happy New Year Boys! Hope 2019 is filled with lots of great goodies and fun adventures. Has it been cold at your house? It's been so cold lately that Hunter hasn't gotten out on walks and he's hoping that 2019 is better in that area. We were so sorry to hear of the losses of friends-it's always tough.
Sending you big wags and lots of love.
Noreen and Hunter

We too were very sad to learn of the passing of Frankie and Ernie's Dad Butch - he was a very good Dad to the boys and a wonderful husband to Lana. And poor Sarah, she suffered for so many years and yet she also gave so much to all those pups in doxie rescue. We sent our condolences to all of their families. Soft woos and gentle hugs from all of us.

Hugs and Woos - Lightning, Misty and Timber and Mom Kathie too

What a pawty that was! Are you all back to normal today??? (Or are your heads pounding?)

On a serious note, we knew about our dear friend, Sarah, but hearing about Butch was such a shock. We had no idea things were that serious. Our deepest sympathy to Lana and Lori.


Have a wonderful New Year.

I want to say Happy New Year... but with all that sadness, it can't really be happy.

I'm glad that the bear kept Stanley company while he partied into 2019. I hope that everyone finds some peace in this new year.
