He's doing very well, thanks. He's the perfect house guest. Looking especially good in one of the two new jackets he got for Christmas.

They all spent Christmas dinner laying by the table. No one was rude. No overt begging. They all had turkey and some green bean casserole. Little man loves all the food that's around. He's livin' the life!! LOL

I hope you and Tesia are having a great day together. How wonderful she's feeling better

Have just been reading the last few pages of your thread, Danny. So having a catch up on a thankfully cooler Boxing Day here in NZ .....you guys will still be enjoying Christmas Day. I an so pleased to hear that Andy is doing well. I bet he will be totally exuberant when he has his first walk outdoors again. Loki has not been able to go for walks this last few days, due to a Hotspot on his throat ....so vet did not want him wearing a collar or harness for a while. His lovely little ruff has been shaven off, but thankfully he has nice feathering coming out on his tail & legs, so still looks handsome. We took him to the park for some off-leash roaming on Christmas Eve with our two sons visiting, & again for a quiet walk around the neighbourhood at 11pm last night, when our meltingly-hot Christmas Day had cooled down a little bit. Muggy today, but will drive over to a forest we haven't been to before, & give his legs a stretch in the cool of the trees.

Heart-warming story about young Matty. Thank heavens for people like you & Jane. I have a feeling Matty just might have found his forever home, but if not, he is certainly getting a taste of what it is like to be loved & wanted & cared for. Imagine what he would be doing right now, if you guys had not gone all out to rescue him. It doesn't 't bear thinking about. I saw the body of a young dog just thrown into a ditch a few days ago .....horrifically thin & abused. It made me cry, but my DH, who has rescued in the past, said "be happy that no-one will ever hurt him again".

Hope you all have a wonderful festive season. We are looking forward to our young Gordon Setter joining us in three days .....I guess in a way we can look upon him as a rescue. He has not been starved or neglected, but he has spent most of his seven months living in a boarding kennel, not knowing the love & joy of living in a family situation. Will keep following this thread.

Thank you Mission Accomplished! It's raining now, may turn into snow of sleet. We're all cozy inside. Everyone had a little bit too much to eat

He's gonna just melt into your arms. Yes, you are rescuing him from a bad situation. I'll bet once he gets a taste of your family's love his tail will never quit wagging. He's a lucky, lucky boy Can't wait to see pictures.

Scenes Of Christmas Around Here

We had our Christmas, then my mother-in-law and brother-in-law came over for presents and Christmas dinner this afternoon.

We're so blessed to still have Andy with us this year. My best present Last year at this time he was having serious issues early in chemo. This year he's doing well. Just as we were heading out to go to Centennial Park for a walk it started raining, so that idea went kaput. Andy was just as happy to munch on turkey. We'll give it a try later in the week when it's supposed to be dry again.

PICS:

Andy hanging out in the kitchen at 5 am. He 'supervised' all the cooking. He was licking his chops so loudly and giving me 'the look', so I made him an egg to go with his breakfast.



Little rescue man waiting for breakfast at 7 am



Katie catching a treat before dinner



2 seconds later she dashed out the dog door after seeing the camera. She HATES cameras. Who knows why?



BIL, Andy, Jane, and MIL. Jane is opening a jacket my MIL bought for little rescue man.



Little rescue man in one of his new sweaters



Golden puppy throw over the couch in the den



Andy arrives for Christmas dinner. I tried to get his face, but he was in a hurry to find his place next to me for dinner. Paid off for him LOL



I hope you all had a nice Christmas Day. Having Andy with us still was my best present.

BTW, we're holding off naming little rescue man until we know his personality better.

Great pictures, I am glad you guys had so much fun.
Little man looks like one of the family.......
Hm, I understand about waiting for his personality to come through before naming.
I kind of like "Little Man", lol. I had a guinea pig with that name, he was one of my favorites

Been snowing here and we have a dusting, I guess it is heading your way.
