Wednesday Wishes ~ December 23, 2020

It’s mid-way during Christmas week and we wanted to send our best doggone wishes for a Happy Christmas. Christmas this year will look and feel different but our wish remain the same. May peace, joy and love of the season fill your heart this Christmas season and remain throughout the coming year. All the Ranch hands wanted to send their very own best ‘howliday’ wishes.

Norman hopes the glow of Christmas lights brighten your day and your heart.


Elsa finds this an odd time of year, because it’s the only time of year in which she can sit in front of a dead tree and eat treats out of a sock (but hopefully not the sock). She also has her paws crossed for a respite from any other photo sessions. Sorry old girl, no promises.


Angel Sam also sends his best wishes to you from across the Bridge. Miss and love you, Knucklehead.


The Ranch will be taking a few days off to relax and reflect on the season.


From our family to yours, may the spirit of Christmas shine in your heart and light your path. We thank you for being in our world.

Live, love, bark! 🐾

  1. Merry Christmas and a relaxing Boxing Day to you all. I loved the Christmas bauble with Sam inside. Very clever and touching. My apologies to Elsa but Norman is gorgeous with his scarf and lights. Very handsome. Hope he’s feeling better.

    1. Happy Christmas, dear Ruby (and to your mom. I think poodles get used to the nekked toes. If only Elsa didn’t need them trimmed every single month. She grows hair like Paul Bunyan! Norman sends sweet puppy kisses and butt wiggles.

    1. No doubt Sam is furiously wagging his tail to all our furiends at the Bridge. Merry Christmas to you and the pooches of Labrador Valley. πŸŽ„πŸŽ…πŸΌπŸŽ

  4. Beautiful wishes and photos from all. It was great to see Angel Sam again.

    A very strange Christmas indeed. Mom and Dad had Christmas in the Driveway yesterday with one of our human sisters and family yesterday, and Christmas in the Garage today with the other human sister and family. It will be Christmas on Zoom with the human brother and family in Texas. Very strange but safe.

    Merry Christmas.

      P. S. Elsa in β€˜pawticular’ wholeheartedly agrees with you.

  6. I see Norman has taken up the wearing of the Christmas lights. Angel Sam must be glad about that, and Elsa relieved. Here’s a cuppa to our friends in Denver. Kiss the pups for me. Amy
