Great Doggy Christmas Gifts

GREAT DOGGY PRESENTS - 
Rob's nephews surprised Dolly and Franklin with handpainted doggy scarves for Christmas (with their mom Sue's talents) among many other surprises. We were so overwhelmed by having hand painted pictures on scarves for the dogs!!  - There was also a card where they recorded themselves saying "Merry Christmas" which brought a tear to Rob's eyes. Wow.






WALKING IN THE CHRISTMAS SNOW FLURRIES!  - Christmas morning a clipper system brought some snow flurries to Maryland, and Rob took all three dogs out for a walk in the snow to get them in the holiday spirit. When we came back, and Tom's parents came over, we all sat around the Christmas tree and opened presents. The dogs got the most presents!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
