Happy New Year Friends and Family,
A few photos of our little miracle to start the new year. Henri is almost off of all his drugs and his last bloodwork came back with the best results yet, his red blood cell count is now well within the normal range. Hooray!
I want to take a minute to tell you some fun things about Henri. Henri loves balls, fetching, sqweekey chickens, and playing tug. He loves to go for walks and will dance excitedly at the mention of the word. He enjoys watching TV. He has, also, learned to climb up on our computer desk, where he likes watching the screensaver, which cycles through pictures of him and Bella. He thinks his sister's crate is the safest place in the world. He loves to give kisses but you might need a towel when he is done. He sleeps on his back most of the time. If he is bored, he might dig a hole (thanks to expert mentoring by Lilli Rose), so you can't leave him unattended too long. And while he outgrew somethings, he never did nursing on his big, white bunny.
I hope each of you can meet our little miracle some day. He is simply a joy. We want to thank all of Henri's supporters this past year. A few special notes of graditude must go to Michele, Jeannette Melchior, and Sandy Davis. Michele graciously offered to medically sponsor Henri from May 2009-May 2010. Jeannette and her Westie furkids have provided a loving, fun place for Henri to visit. Sandy Davis has not only taught us about the Westie World but has journeyed with us through Henri's bad hair days, when there was hair, then almost no hair, and hair again. And as you will see from the attached photos, Henri has grown up with the help of each of his special angels to be a handsome young boy.
Happy New Year! May we all be blessed with health!

Please welcome Zoe our new 6 month old Norwich Terrier.. Zoe who was formerly known as Star because she was born on the 4th of July and her full registered name is Unique's Star Spangle Banner from Karen Whalen on Unique kennels in Phoenix Arizona will be one of our up and coming show dogs in AKC conformation events along with my Westie girl Sara who is registered as White Diamonds Sweet Sara. Though Sara is only 5 months old now she stands a little taller than Zoe but it does not hold them back from learning to play together. I will have some interesting video of these two in the near future.. so much fun to watch them play together!
PS.. the other Norwich on the couch with me is my 13 year old Peanut.

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year! We hope you and the gang are well. Winston and Augie are doing great and continue to be the best of friends. I thought you'd enjoy some of the photos from Winston enjoying his presents on Christmas morning. He continues to LOVE toys like no dog I have ever met. It is a constant playfest around here. We've moved to a bigger house (and bigger yard) recently which the boys love and they are on constant squirrel and bird patrol outside. Itching has almost completely been resolved with the help of homeopathic medicine and supplement support, combined with no more vaccines and a simple raw diet. Winston eats mostly ground raw rabbit and bones or ground turkey and bones, with some additional vitamins and minerals for balance. He remains a bit on the small side (about 15-16lbs) but is fit as a fiddle and we're happy his skin no longer bothers him. Give our best to Peanut and the kids.
