Sadly, my parents did not feel up to driving down to MD for Christmas this year, so we are celebrating with my sister and aunt and with those who did make the trip from NY (my brother Barry and his girlfriend Elyse, and of course Uncle Johnny).
Then right after Christmas Florian and I are bringing Fozzie and Lamar to see my parents in NYC, then up to Ithaca, NY to see this other bohemian East Coast establishment and visit a beloved former neighbor who moved there. We are not yet sure where Star is staying. Maybe at the dog daycare where I used to work, maybe with my sister and Genghis, and maybe she'll come with us! This Christmas is nothing if not spontaneous.
We want to thank Pauley James for the great Zippy Paws toys, which we won in a giveaway! The Zippy Burrow- Sheep Pen has provided hours of amusement for Star.
And though the hedgehog did not last long, I do believe it provided great satisfaction to Fozzie during its short time with him in its original incarnation.
Santa, if you're listening, all I want is for every family everywhere in the world to have access to contraceptives and family planning services (and to choose to limit their family size); for everyone thinking of adding a dog or cat to their family to choose to adopt, rather than buy from a breeder; and for humans everywhere to realize the importance of limiting our production of greenhouse gases for the survival of our planet!
That's not too much to ask, is it?
