What is normal?

Ah, goodbye 2009--glad to see you go. We've lost friends, and friends of friends, both human and canine. Others certainly had it worse than we did, but the year wasn't great regardless. What does 2010 have in store? We hope it's lotsa good stuff. Now that the holidays have passed, as things get back to "normal," we're wondering if the holiday season portended anything for the coming decade?

We (Jacks, Narra, Tuchuck, and Theo) spent Christmas day with Kidlat at his house. We still had snow, so romping was definitely in order. We hope for more snow in 2010--just enough to be fun--and some crazy romping, without a doubt.

That same day, however, when the humans had their Christmas party, we were sequestered downstairs. We certainly hope--nay, we demand--this practice not become a habit.

New Year's Eve was just for us, at home, together. Uneventful but relaxing and way fun just bein about us. Even though we covet each other's stuff, we know we each have ours, as it should be.

We finally got a fire built, too. So nice and warm. It also reminded us of Montana and the mountains. We look forward to being there again this year. Nothing quite like exploring mountain trails by day and snuggling by a fire at night. Road trip!!!

Is it true that how you ring in the new year is how you'll spend it? If so, our evening was about being together, a crackling fire, a pint of Guinness, and watching Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Hm, what does that portend...???

Guinness is kind of a cookieface beer, don't you think? Or are cookiefaces black and tans?

I think 2010 will be better, especially if I get bacon and scallops like on NYE.

ps. Jackson dude--no one puts the old guys in a corner!

Mom is coveting that Guinness and says it only portends excellent, malty things. She also said to tell you that she smoked a cigarette with Johnny Depp when he was shooting Fear and Loathing. She has no idea if that portends anything, but thinks it's a cool story anyway. Tom Waits was there too. She says you guys have to come back north to hear the whole story.

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!

Yes, we a lot of our internet friends have gone this year - guess that's the way with our dog friends though. :(

But your NYE sounded lovely and exactly the right way to spend it. My humans were inside with me because there were horrid noisy fireworks so we all had an early night.

Best wishes to your officially extended pack for 2010.
