I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving.  We all have a lot to be thankful for here.  I know I am very thankful for this site.  I was talking to Rene last night in the chatroom and I have been on here 5 years.  Sassy’s journey started right before Halloween in 2012 and ended in August 2013.   

Five years of great friends and family to be Thankful for.  I want you all to give your furbabies a big hug and kiss.  And for us whose babies are at the Bridge I know they are all having a big feast and watching over us. 

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving Michelle and thank you! I have not been here nearly as long as you but I appreciate all of you. It’s the first time in a long time that I feel like I have met really genuine good people. I hope your day is a good one, giving Huck a gentle hug so he doesn’t smack me laughing

Lots of love and hugs heartheart
