New Year's Day

It's a wonderfully quiet day here. The clouds are rolling in, but the promise of rain has thus far managed to hold itself off, which gave us time to take the Doodlebug up to the bluffs for a morning walk. It was truly a perfect time to be there --- few other folks had yet to venture out, the temperature was a walking-perfect 50 degrees and we were ready to shed the confines of the house for a bit. The dog, having had the chance to exercise his body and his overactive mind, is now as calm as a June afternoon.

New Year's Day is frequently a day of reflection, and I suppose I'm no different from anyone else in that respect. I spent time last night trying to convey to the people in my life how much I adore and appreciate them, and now it's your turn.

Whether you came by only once, pop in when you have an extra moment or take time out of your life to read what I commit to cyberspace, I want you to know that I appreciate every look-see, every time you've shared my posts or brought someone else around and every kind word that's been tossed my direction.

Going into 2011 means I'll be trying some new things on the site, so I hope to see both familiar faces and some new ones. The world of pet lovers is both wide and deep, and with each new person I meet and every new blog I see I learn something new, either about a pet-related issue or about myself and my passion.

Here's wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year, filled with love and laughter.
