2020 in Review

We wish all our cyber-paw pals a Barky New Year.  We hope 2021, "The Year of the Ox" is a whole letter better than 2020.   It was a year dominated by COVID, pawlitics and far to many bridge crossings.  Gemini look forward to teaching Normandy the way of the collie.  Since we returned to Angel Paws in August there have been a lot of new friends we have met.

Barky New Year to all,

Gemini & Normandy

Hi Collies. I'm Joey. Mom just updated our password after a zillion years so she could get back posting and get reacquainted with old pals.

Wishing you a happy new year, safe and calm.

Happy New Year to you, Dog Dad, and your fur kids. Yes, 2020 was very strange. Let's hope 2021 is more normal, whatever that means!

Yep, 2020 was a very trying year. 2017, 2018 & 2019 were also traumatic for me for various reasons and then 2020 hit with Coronavirus and then 2 hard-to-deal-with health disgnosis. Actually, I dealt better with stuff this year....maybe cuz I was so used to crisis. I'm just hoping 2021 will give me a break here. I'm looking forward to a world free of Coronavirus after everyone's vaccinated, but this event will have long-lasting effects on all of us...leaving a black splotch on our hearts, minds and souls. I was extremely sad to learn that Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann on Gilligan's Island died of Coronavirus at age 82 just before New Year's. Tina Louise, who played Ginger, is 86 now and is the last remaining original cast member from that zany sitcom comedy. May God truly have mercy on all our souls and bless us greatly with His grace!!!!
