Wow! That's quite a recap!
All I can recall from 2009 is...well...the robbery! It was a landmark moment (if there's anything like that) in my life.

Have a great 2010.

Licks and Wags,

2009 was an eventful year for all of us. Happy New Year! Hope that you're enjoying the cold weather; it must be a nice break from the usual boiling :)

An interesting summary of 2009. We weren't aware of the 7 show dogs that died. We are guessing the 8th did too since its kidneys were failing. Very sad! And so many friends lost.
