Brrr! Here we are settling down for the evening on a cold wintry evening. It's December 31st, 2009, And we wish everyone a very happy and prosperous New Year! It has been snowing on and off all day, and the dogs had a blast frolicking in the back yard all day. They are all settled down in their heated kennel now for their winter's nap. They've had their Diamond Maintenance and stewed chicken dinner, their water dishes are full, and their favorite Country and Western music is playing on their radio. Now that's the life!
