Thankful on Thursday


With Christmas almost here, we thought we would show you all the cards we have received in the mail from our blogging friends. We also have several beautiful e-cards that we will try to post another day. We wish we had a better way to show you each and every one of these wonderful cards.




Absolutely amazing, more and more arrive every day - and we thank you ALL.

Last Friday the mail brought a very special card to our door. It was the same day we learned about the tragic fire that The Houston Pittie Pack suffered.





It brought tears to our eyes as we saw each of the pups in their beautiful card. But it also makes us happy to know that we now have a way to always remember the five who have crossed the bridge and the two special ones, Brinks and Bella, who survived to help Sandra carry on. Thank you, Sandra and your Pack.






Now Thunder would like to share another card we received to add a lighter touch to this post.


Thunder here today. I wonder how many of you remember the special project I was working on last summer. You might remember how I had a lot of loose fur, some Harry Potter books, some help from Ciara and the little bipeds.



You know I worked very hard to create something very special. Some of you might say I succeeded very well, but THIS -





was NOT quite what I had in mind. (Just in case Santa is reading this, the little pest has sort of grown on me.
)


But I digress from my point. We received another very special card from Reilly and Denny and their human Bree - who makes beautiful cards.


Look at this:








Wasn't that just so very nice of them to do!!!





Now THESE two cuties are much closer to what I had in mind:)

Tucker The Crestie said...

What beautiful cards you received ... and I agree, the one from the Houston Pittie Pack is very special. We're so sad that we never got a chance to know Shelby and the others who have crossed the Bridge, as we didn't learn about their blog until after the tragedy. We have been thinking a lot about them lately.

The little scarf-wearing huskies are too cute!

Frankie Furter said...

You made a PERFECT POST here my dear Furends. Just the right amount of Everythingy.

Love the little TY Woos.

Sue said...

Oh that is a very special present. Your card collection is impressive. Blogging friends are wonderful people.
Have a very Merry Christmas.

The cards are wonderful! This is our first year, and I am so loving feeling so connected to everyone and seeing the beautiful petpals in all of the awesome cards! I love how you displayed them! We've been taking some photos too, not quite sure how to do them all justice either. It's been so much fun.

Love your special card! That was so sweet and the mini-Huskies are adorable. What a lovely thought!

BOL, Thunder I don't think you're allowed to trade him in for the smaller version. But those little ornaments are adorable.

The Pittie Pack card is so cute and lets you remember the happier times. I am still in shock and can't believe. I sure hope that they are getting back on their feet and were able to have a nice holiday today.
