I’ve been busily preparing for the holidays. What specialties for the new kids for Thanksgiving? They’ll savor the smells. I hope they don’t think this is normal. Then Christmas is coming. I’ve got to finish their stockings and wrap their presents. Sans tree. (The tree has disaster written all over it.) I won’t be home Christmas day, but I don’t think they’ll really realize that we celebrate it a few days later.
While I’ve been busy making everything right for DeeDee and Craigie, more and more comes out about the special agreement

Whereas the dogs of
Macau have nothing but death waiting, ours have the potential for adoption. And for that reason, I’ll make this their best holiday ever! Of that, I have no doubt.
And for the dogs condemned to
Macau, I will help in the effort. There is no reason a young, healthy dog needs to die.
This is the picture of how they should live.
