Before we get to the year that was or the year that will be, here’s your annual Christmas card. Brought to you by the little dogs that keep us happy, on our toes, and forever finding rawhide chews in the strangest places.
Anyone who keeps up with this blog on semi-regular basis knows that this year has been a pretty long year here at Casa Dachshund. If it wasn’t for a couple major bright spots, this would be an extremely depressing post.
We lost Rerun, 2 Great Uncles, a Great Aunt, my sister, her dog, a friend to a heinous murder, and all sorts of other people and animals. There were funerals and burials all over the country. At one point I went to 3 services in 3 states in 6 weeks.
We gained too. We made new friends, we met wonderful people, we added a new fuzzball to the family, Geoff went to and graduated from the Reserve Police Academy, an arrest was made in our friend’s murder, and absolutely most importantly, we both got jobs at MIT which we love.
Let’s add in some photos to this review.
In case anyone forgot about this Fall… Actually, it was sort of from August onward, let us recall the Pumpkin Spice hysteria. (The forgotten Spice Girl, har, har, har.) It reached a fever pitch just before Halloween. Geoff and I saw Pumpkin Spice *everything* while food shopping. On a sort of dare we tried Hood Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream Sandwiches. They were passable.
And then of course, in the Halloween candy insanity, Cadbury’s lost their minds.
It’s probably time to wrap this up. The New Year is fast approaching and Geoff and I have important things to do. Like, read books and plan on going to Star Wars tomorrow. You know, adult stuff.
Anyway, if one of us emailed you the link to this post it’s because we want you to know that somehow you were a part of this terrible/wonderful year, that you’re important to us, and that we wish you the best in the coming year. Also, we apparently wanted you to see photos of our pets. So we’ll close out with one more.
Merry, Happy, and Blessed Everything. We’ll see you next year.
