It was a pretty good Christmas season. Not once did I hear that stupid barking dogs jingle bells song or the word 'kwanzaa' so maybe both have run their course.

Speaking of Bah Humpug...err...I mean...Humbug, my daughter has this sweatshirt, along with a T-shirt and a pair of socks with a similar design.

We lost Ted E. Bear, our Pug of 16 years, last summer and this is her way of paying homage.

Have to say that is "kinda neat/sweet"... Your daughter must have really cared about him.

Sixteen years is a long innings for one's pet pooch.. I'm a cat phan more than a pooch phan; but appreciate that both pets become part of the family and so are seriously missed when they pass on to that great playground wherever... Commiserations to y'all over your loss... May 2015 bring you a happy newcomer...?

We have both a cat and a dog at this time. The dog is a pug-shih tzu mix, roughly 10 YO, which we inadvertently rescued from a bad situation about 5 years ago. My son asked us to dog-sit for Chopper while some issues were worked out at one of his friend's house and for various reasons the dog never went back.

It took a few years for the dog itself to work out its own issues. My wife never had any problems with him but with me it was different. I can now pick him up, bother him when he sleeping, etc. without him going ballistic. It took a few years of patience - something I don't typically have a lot of - but it was worth it. It used to be that the wife would have to put the leash on him before I could take him for a walk, but now he comes running to me and we walk for miles at a time. We don't let children pet him because he's still a bit skittish and we don't want to take any chances.

The cat is a mostly outdoor cat, but as she ages she likes the warmth of our blanket covered laps a lot more now. She's a PITA, especially this winter. She'll knock on one our three doors to be let in, only to want to go back out, sometimes within a few minutes. She will literally wait for us to open the deck door to let her in, walk through the house to front door and ring the hanging bells to be let back out. Why should she walk around the house. It's shorter to go through it. PITA

I've had cats all my life but was totally against dogs (fear based on a childhood incident) until I realized how much my refusal to get one was impacting my relationship with my wife. That's when I "allowed" Ted E. Bear into our house and realized what I had been missing. The next dog will be a bit bigger than the Pugs, but that will have to wait until Chopper has passed on. We're pretty sure he doesn't want a companion.
