PURE JOY! I loved watching them have a taste of everything they've dreamed about. What a wonderful gift to both. Thank you for sharing!

And yeah, they have physical issues for sure. But look at how in tune you are with their movement and behaviors. You know the signals, what to look for, and what to do to help them feel better. Kudos to you Sally, you are an even wiser, smarter dog mom than ever before. The Holladay Dream Team is living the good life!

  You knew I would send Christmas  pictures, but couldn't wait til the 25th!  So we've started celebrating  early!

Here are their stockings I let them have early.   Santa will fill them again Christmas Eve with treats.
Think you'll enjoy how happy it made Cash.
After he "owned" it, he took  to his ever growing piles of treasures  in the yard.
Hank just pretty much ignored it and preferred staying inside checking out some christmas decorations.  There's also a short video of him looking at himself in the mirror

Those boys sure deserve to open their gifts early! Cash fit the whole thing in his mouth? I can only imagine what he was thinking! Perhaps Hank knows the real deal is coming soon.

They SCORED! With YOU, Sally, you are the best gift from Santa that any dog or creature could ask for.

Thanknyou so much Jackie, Rene and Holly♥️♥️♥️. Your comments always are so sweet and loving.  You've followed them from the beginning  and I love that you validate the joy and happiness I see jn them too.

I am truly the lucky one.  It just fills me up to see how they've embraced being loved and cared for and appreciated  for who they are.  Before, I have no doubt  at all they were kept in pens as "hunting dawgs" and never knew anything else...little human contact , probably  income sister feeding, etc.  They just have too many issues to be have been cared for properly.   Caring for Creatures gave them a good start and now I have the privilege  of giving them a little bit of their well deserved heaven on earth.

And Myrtle and Frankie will be stylin' their Christmas fashions soon too!   SOOOOO....that means Purrkins and Saxton  and Bo and Huckleberry  have to dress up too!!!   And a throwback for Wyatt and Jerry!! 

 I'm so pleased at how well everyone gets along.  I'm allowing Hank and Cash in one room at a time, and that's  huge progress for them.  Cash doesn't  like it much though.  He just comes in a few steps and wants to go back outside.   Hank is more settled, but still a bull in a china shop.  And yeah, loved how he looked st himself in the mirror.  Even half blind he saw his handsome self. 

I think Myrtle likes Hank best.  I think Frankie likes Cash best.  I think Hank and Cash are indifferent because they are such a bonded pair.   And the same is true for Frankie and Myrtle too though.

Thanks again for sharing in all the joy and happiness Hank and Cash bring me.  It means a lot and I hope you know that.

Lots of love

Sally  and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

Just one more thing (s) and then I'll stop....for awhile😉😉

In the late  mornings, Hank and Cash like to let rogether in same certain  sunny spots in the yard where Bob and Nellie did.

One of Cash's favorite things is to take his stuff" out into the ua4d.  He always goes to the same spot and first with his stash.  Then throughout  the day I'll find that he's moved things to different places in the yard.  Yes, quite an "unkempt yard with stuff all over.  But it's their yard and he can place his treasures wherever he wants!  To some it may look trashy....to me it's "decorated"  just beautifully!!

Hank could care less about stuff.  If he can't  eat it.....not interested!

You have such a great pack there Sally. It always puts a smile on our faces to see the latest developments so please keep sharing.

I know without a doubt that all your angel dogs and cats are there for you, looking out for Myrtle, Frankie, Cash, and Hank, making sure they understand one another to ensure peace on earth and peace inside the house. And that really is what your lovely paradise of a home symbolizes. Trashy yard? Are you kidding? I don't think there is a single place on the east coast we've visited where we felt so at ease, so one with nature, than the beautiful place you call home. What lucky dogs you have to be there and experience it. Your updates and videos help us live it too! 

Can't wait to see what the Christmas party looks like at your place. It will be boring for us again this year without a pup, but as requested, I'll definitely share some throwback pics to remind us that one day we'll have more pooch parties here too.

Awww thanks Michelle.  And right back. at ya'. times a million♥️

Okay, time for Hank and Cash having their first Christmas cupcake video.  Followed by Merry Myrtle and Frankie  polishing off small amount of leftover Cool Whip.  Murtle got more on her mig than in her mouth😁  

A little bit of junk food for Christmas is "tradition" for me and for my dogs.  

Merry Christmas to everyone. May all the good memories  sustain younifnyou have Spirit Angel's now....and may you consider  to make new memories with all your earth dogs and cats.

Sally, you MUST show everyone the beautiful, magical fairyland you've created with your house, esp the one with Frankie by the fire!

Love to you, and Merry Christmas
