 May the Magic of Christmas be with you each and every day in your heart, in your mind and in your soul.

This Christmas we have sponsored 6 animals at Best Friends Animal Society
~Our Christmas  wish is that all critters great and small have a warm place to sleep,
 food for their tummies and loads of loving!~

She really is an angel!
This soft, sweet little cat managed to survive a pretty horrible hoarding situation in Nevada. But even after all she's been through, she's known as everyone's gentle little friend.
She's tender and shy, so it's best to approach her slowly so she doesn't get spooked. She's still got a little emotional healing left to do. But she seems to get along with everyone in the world.
Angel has a couple special needs, but nothing too high-maintenance. She needs a little medicine for her allergies is all, and she has a bit of a head tilt.
Angel is good with other cats. (Dogs might be too scary for such a vulnerable little girl). But other cats are fine, and we think she'd be a doll with mature children, as well.

Won't you give this soft, sensitive little Angel a closer look? She's only three years old, and she's had such a hard life so far.
Amelia seems shy ... until you take her on a walk!
At walk time, Amelia is just a bundle of excitement. "Walk time is the best time in the world!" And it's a joy to see her so exuberant, because most of the time, Amelia seems very inside herself. After all, she spent her first year of life living in an abandoned trailer with her sister. When she was rescued, she wasn't sure whether the people were going to hurt her!
But today, once she gets past her initial shyness with you, you'll find that she's a dog who can really be "somebody's". Once you know her, she is truly affectionate and friendly.
Amelia is OK living with other dogs (Though she can be feisty with strange dogs when she's on her walks!) She's seven years old, a border collie mix, and in perfect health.
Is this the darling for you?

Great Christmas shot! It turned out great. We are happy that your family is helping out animals. We're going to drop a hint to John and Kelly that they should do that next year.

Merry Christmas!

Oh, we love this post. We love your Christmas card and the message that comes with it. And we are so touched by your efforts to rehome the little angels that you've featured. Fergi, espeially, can relate to the "shy dog" characterization. (Moma's been reading Dogtown, and the chapter about Bingo really hit home.) Shy dogs and kitties can REALLY make their people feel great, when tiny little baby steps are made. Please keep us posted on these two furries.

We hope your Christmas is wonderful and joyous. We all know about the greatest Gift. It is that gift that has taught us to love and cherish.

Enjoy the night. Silent Night. Full of promise.
Jake and Fergi xxoo
