Lovely photos. I can relate to Andy being your best gift this year. After I opened my gifts yesterday, all of which were wonderful, I went and kissed Tesia's nose and said, "you're still my best gift."

Love the Little Man's new sweaters - he really looks happy and at home.

Glad you all had such a nice holiday!

Lovely photos thanks for sharing! So happy that Andy was able to share a special Christmas with you all after everything he's been through, looks like you all had a great time. Aw little rescue man in his new jumper is too cute he looks like he's really come out his shell now. Keep us posted when you find a suitable name for him

A Name For Little Rescue Man

Jane and I spent some time today trying out names with different vowel and consonant combinations to see which he responded to the most positively and consistently, giving equal thought to matching his personality. He's very small but has a huge heart and very laid back way about him. Doesn't demand anything. Quietly climbs in your lap or next to you and lays down. Loves affection. He's so small I can pet his whole chest and belly at the same time with one hand.

There was one name he responds to every time: "OLLIE". It sounds friendly too ... like him.

I just now looked up what "Ollie" means and was pleasantly surprised. It fits him Peacefulness is such a good quality. Something Jane and I have always held out hope mankind will aspire to.

Ollie

The name Ollie is a baby boy name.

Latin Meaning:
The name Ollie is a Latin baby name. In Latin the meaning of the name Ollie is: Olive (symbol of peace); peaceful.

French Meaning:
The name Ollie is a French baby name. In French the meaning of the name Ollie is: Olive tree.

German Meaning:
The name Ollie is a German baby name. In German the meaning of the name Ollie is: Elf army. Can also be a Relic, ancestral heritage.

(He is small and efl-ish ... and mighty courageous, strong and well intentioned of heart. He survived and stuck up for himself with his last ounce of courage while extremely malnourished and underweight, dirty, and boney tired. But he didn't lose the peaceful and affectionate nature that is apparent as the foundation of his personality, one that only needed a gentle touch and a few hours to return. He's a lover, not a fighter)

SoulUrge Number: 2
People with this name have a deep inner desire for love and companionship, and want to work with others to achieve peace and harmony.

How do you like the name "OLLIE"?




Even in a longer maltese/bichon type hair style (poorly represented below in his bedraggled state) he looks like an Ollie:



I'm telling Jane that the day he comes home from the groomer looking like this is the day I MOVE OUT!! LOL:
