Purrs and woofs for a Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

This pic was taken by our talented friend Deborah Wilson of Deborah J. Wilson Photography. It was from the photo shoot we did this fall, and I may have posted it before.

Meanwhile, our newest pup Gigi is making herself right at home. Here's a picture of her in Jamaica, right after she was found wandering the streets alone at about 6 weeks of age...

Amazing that she survived!

She is a sweetheart of a dog. She does like to try to sleep on our pillows at night, though. And she likes to wake up there, too...

My new alarm clock!

My little shoulder puppy.

She has fit in like she's always lived here...

And she is definitely Daddy's Little Princess. These two kill me...

The cats are coping very well with the onslaught of dogs...

I actually bought this bed for the dogs but I made the mistake of putting it on the kitchen table. Now it always has cats in it! Amazing how four of them can squish in there.

Pip doesn't mind being on the bottom. Actually, nobody seems to mind being on the bottom.  I think it's the warmest spot!

Three Greeks and a Canadian! Left is Honey, then Annuk, the Pip, and Daisy is at bottom front.

It's really nice having cats that enjoy snuggling together. Meanwhile, I think we need to buy an extra king-size bed for ourselves...

Dodger gets very tense, as you can see.

And Gigi is now following suit!

I hope you all had a lovely New Year's Eve! Wishing you all a happy, healthy 2017. xoxoxox


  1. Looks like a very happy New Year for so many critters, thanks to your big hearts.
    Dodger really needs to learn to let it go... lol.. posing for Playpuppy.

  2. Happy New Year! May the best in 2016 in 2017 become the worst.

  3. The cats and dogs all know how to relax. We humans could learn a few lessons.

    Happy New Year to all!

  4. So much doggie and cat love! You are Blessed!

  5. Knatolee, that picture of the new pup at 6 weeks looks like Dobby, the house-elf in Harry Potter! And although I know you say you are fostering, it looks like that pup has found herself a home.

    1. Failed foster!! She is staying. :)

  6. Lovely photo of the two of you. Happy New Year to you :-)

  7. The dogs really have you tained. You buy a new bed and you buy a new bed for the dogs.

  8. People who don't have animals can never understand the pleasure it gives seeing our cats and dogs so content with life.

  9. Gigi has such special, beautiful eyes!

    Forget the extra bed, they will follow you on YOUR bed anyway... :-)

    Have a nice day!

  10. Happy New Years to you, Gordon and everybuddy at the farm. We look forward to sharing 2017 with you.

    Julie and Poppyq

  11. I really DO want to live at YOUR house. There's jus so much love!!! Wishing you (and us all) more love in 2017.

  12. Happiest of new years to you and Gordon. Love your critters! XOXO

  13. A Very Happy New Year to you, too! Love seeing all the animals lolling about and snuggling. Gigi is adorable!
