Congrats on the awesome work that you do

MERRY Christmas!!!!
Merry Christmas to you as well!

He's a very, very brave little boy. Running around in 30 degree temperatures and high winds with nothing but the matted fur over his bones, he kept going for as long as he's been on the streets, and at half the weight he should be. He may be small, but he has a gigantic spirit and a lot of heart. Pretty heroic if you ask me.

It doesn't get any better than this, what a wonderful heartwarming story, one that is needed with all the recent tragedy.

Matty is one very lucky little guy, he is going to thrive. You can already tell he knows he is safe and will be loved.

I love all of the pictures of Matty's Grooming Day and of Katie, and Andy!!
It choked me up when you said that Matty fell asleep on the book of Angels!!
I dare say that Matty has found HEAVEN at your house!
What could be more heartwarming than curling up with our dogs to enjoy TV or a movie!!
Kisses and hugs to Matty-looking at his face I see poodle. Many years ago I had a Bichon Frise that I think had some poodle in her and her name was Mimi!!

Oh wow he looks so much better now!! Your groomer has done a wonderful job with him. I can see the transformation he's made since been with you the past few days and how content and happy he looks on those last photos I just love his little Santa jumper, too cute!

He's definitely ended up in the right place for him to recuperate, and I have a feeling it's going to be his best Christmas ever. I'm sure it'll all work out as it's meant to and if he's meant to stay with you or find a new home, then he will Merry Christmas!

Wow, wow, WOW!!

I got all teary when I saw the "after" pictures. What a transformation. He must feel SO much better. And he looks so much happier, too. Poor dear. It sounds like he has some anxiety with men, but he doesn't seem to mind you, Danny? I guess he recognizes deep kindness and a good heart.

Honestly, you and Jane are truly special people. I feel lucky to know you, even though I only actually "know" you through this forum. But you are an inspiration.

And I am SO glad to hear Andy's ankle is better!! He'll be out romping and playing in no time!

Andy's ankle is good. Another few days and we'll start exercise. I am going to get him 10 water treadmill sessions. They may help or not, but he LOVES the water, so it'll at least be fun for him. His muscles aren't atrophied to a great degree, but with the Prednisone and now 5 weeks of no activity they do seem smaller than they were say a year ago. We'll get him built up again. Just getting out and exercising will help a lot.

Matty slept on the bed last night. Found the dogs stairs all on his own. When I woke up he was sleeping on Jane's pillow. He loves getting his belly rubbed and will roll over in a New York minute for belly rubs. As thin as he is, and with his long legs in comparison to his body length, he looks like he's walking on stilts.
