Our Little Shelter


The Board of directors of the Humane Society of Allen County with Santa
Hi kitties - I wanted to show you the board that makes sure the animals at our little shelter are well taken care of. Mommy is the lady standing to the left of Santa. She says her work there makes her heart sing. They are a great group of people and they all have one common goal - to improve the lives of the animals in our county. Mommy says that they are what's called a "working board". That just means that they clean kennels, do adoptions, paint walls, scrub floors and anything else that needs to be done. They also run the shelter on a skinny shoestring. Anyhow, I just thought I'd share this with you.
I'm so very, very tired anymore. I have enjoyed getting holiday cards from all of you and I want to say thanks. I nap most of the time. When I'm not napping I am eating. When I am not napping or eating I am sticking close to the 'rents. Mommy is calling me her Christmas Miracle because I'm hanging in there. No pain and no complaints, but I am slowly fading and sometimes I dream about the Bridge. I'm not scared and I feel surrounded by love. I will try to post more this Christmas week. Mommy has time off from her other job, so maybe I can convince her to help me.
Big smoochies to all of you - I love you all very much and realize your prayers and good thoughts are keeping me going...

You have a great bunch of people on your shelter's board. I am sure their efforts are appreciated by many of the residents there.

I am sorry to hear that you are slowly fading away toward the bridge. I know that you will be well, whole, and happy at bridge; but, please don't be in a hurry to go there---at least as long as you are not suffering. We, your friends, fans, and family will miss you terribly when you do go.

May you and your family have a great Christmas,

Dee
