2011 has been a very different year for my family. It all started with my Dad having colon cancer, then Ted becoming a tripawd, in the spring Dad lost his Mom then his cousin then his uncle then his sister-in-law. In June we lost our beloved Ted E. Bear. Dad went through chemo treatments for 6 months. Mom’s Mom got remarried in October (we lost Mom’s Dad to cancer in 2006).  November Mulligan joined our family. Whew what a year.

Just about a week ago, Dad was in the hospital for a reversal of his colostomy. He is now home and recovering nicely. For Mom, this is the first Christmas in her entire life not to be with Mom’s Mom. All is good though, Mom’s Mom is having her first Christmas with her new husband, and Mom is having her Christmas with Tom and all of us furbies.

All is right with the world in our family.

Until next time,

      Wowie Kazowie, that is quite a mouthful for me. Oh yes, our whole family took a medicinal nap this afternoon. Here is the funny thing, Mom got on the floor to cuddle with Mulligan, he stayed still for like 30 seconds, then he got on the couch. Mom giggled and said, “Hmmm what is wrong with this picture. ”

    I am now tired from reading that, Izzy. I know how happy you must have been to see your dad come home yesterday. And even though your mom won’t be with her mom today, she knows that the new family are happy together and that’s really important. Besides, she has you and Mulligan and Hank and Missy. Why in the world would she need anyone else?

    Love, Dakota

      D Dawg,
      Exactly what more could Mom and Dad want, they have all of us and we are pawfect. I heard many phone calls being made and all were very happy. I know all is right with our world.

    Yes, we did have a lot of things happen this year. These things have helped Mom and I become a registered therapy team. We work well together and get each other through tough times.
