Now that the holidays are over I, like you, am looking forward to a new year. But before we say farewell to 2014, I would like to thank all of my friends that went out of their way to be kind to me and the animals here at HSNY.
I hear a lot of talk about people rushing out to return their gifts. What is an ugly Christmas sweater? If a sweater keeps me warm, I’m happy.

I didn’t get a PlayStation, but I love to play…especially with the homemade dog toys that Hannah and her class made for me and the other dogs here. Her brother Moses helped her deliver them….thanks guys!
You should see the cozy beds and blankets that my dear friend Nancy donated. They are so soft and warm. I wish that every dog and cat had a nice clean bed to sleep in like I do.

In our HSNY hospital, we go through a lot of bedding. Thank you to Kim, for the sheets and pillowcases, and Annye and her mom Sharyn, for the many boxes of blankets, towels, bandanas and harnesses that you’ve sent over the years.
Even though I’m not allowed to drink eggnog (eggnog??), I certainly enjoyed the delicious dog cookies that Sassafrass Jones sent over. What fun it was to hand out treats to all my buddies!

The cats told me that many of you donated cardboard scratching posts from The word is that they love them, and could always use more.
We are very grateful for all of your love and support. That’s a gift that nobody will ever want to exchange.

Happy New Year one and all.
