Happy New Year everyone - Liza here posting today! Thanks so much for all your super nice comments on our video. If we had known it would make so many people teary we would have bought some Kleenex and mailed them out before we posted!
I must confess today’s post is sort of like the Jeopardy! category "Potpourri", just a good old hodge podge of items.

I realized only AFTER the fact why we used the Sarah McLachlan song ANGEL for our New Years Wish video – I must have had it on my mind because she has been doing public service announcements on TV lately and that song is playing in the background. You can check out the video and more information by clicking HERE. If you are looking for a group to donate to or volunteer with this year the ASPCA, Guiding Eyes and Labs4Rescue are our personal favorite groups.

As you guys may have remembered we said we would have a LabraDory drawing to send out a special New Year’s surprise to some lucky pups who participated in the DWB Christmas Card Exchange. On Monday a friend mine drew the names of six DWB friends and we will be mailing out something special to each! We don’t want to spoil the surprise so we won’t tell who got drawn just yet.

Dory and I have made some resolutions for 2008 and we thought we would share them with you: I, Dory the Lab, resolve to:

- To counter surf less.
- To get more exercise.
- To be kinder to squirrels and cats.
- To stay more focused at CGC dog class.

I, Liza the human, resolve to:

- To be more patience when Dory has a hard time at dog class.
- To get more exercise with Dory.
- To post to both our blogs more often.
- To get more pictures of Dory and I together for our blog and online album.

So we hope every one has rested up after all the big festivities and let’s all have a great 2008!!!

You aren't serious about the squirrel and cat thing are you? Squirrels and cats are made for our amusement! What other purpose do they have?
The rest sound like good resolutions, although I'm thinking your mom helped you out witht the counter surfing one.
Your Sorta Sis

Good resolutions, except that cat and squirrel thing, who cares about them?

Gus said...

Me too, drop the cat and squirrel thing. It is not realistic.

Hey Girlies!
Great resolutions but we're with everydog else about the cat and squirrel thing.

We haven't made any resolutions really but I guess we should. I think all of us need to take more pics with our people!

My mommy is a big fan of Sarah McLachlan & that song is one of her favorites. Those are some great resolutions. Hopefully you both will be able to turn into new leaves by the end of the year!

Love licks,

Happy 2008!!! We loved your video, and Mum just loves that song! One of her all time favorites. Great to see your Mum too, Dory!

Looking forward to lots more fun and friendship in 2008!

Hi Dory!

That is a great list of resolutions....I think you'll both do great in 2008..I'm a poet & don't even KNOW IT!

Love & Licks,

Hi Dory! I liked your resolutions except that one about being nice to squirrels! I know how you feel though. My mon made me write some resolutions I didn't really want either. They are on my blog.

Wags & licks from Rusty

Do chipmunks and groundhogs count as squirrels? Hmmm? I have some of those in my yard back East. Have cats here in California, too. Used to chase them, but now mostly just chat with them over the back fence. Turns out that I have some cousins who are cats and word got back...well, you know how families are. Gotta be nice to kin folk.

Peace be with you for 2008
