To all our dear friends,
If you are reading this, or even see that we've posted an entry, it means that you are one of our friends. And, we are so grateful for that.
We joined in May of this year, never realizing how much fun we'd have, how much we'd learn, or how many WONDERFUL pups and pawrents we'd come into contact with. We never realized how attached we'd get to some of them, or how much the passing of our friends through Dogster would crush us, break our hearts, or make us cry. We never realized how much we would pray for someone we'd never meet, or how often they would cross our minds throughout a "normal" day.
We never wanted to just reach out and hug someone, whether in celebration of something, or to try to take away the pain, like we have since joining Dogster. We never realized how much joy could come from someone acknowledging our silliness, or someone congratulating us on some achievement, or the comfort in getting a "hug" back when we ourselves had a bad day. We never knew there'd be so many listening ears or kind words as we've known to be here.
We never knew we'd learn so much, whether about making our page pretty or making ourselves healthier. We never knew about so many resources to help us be the best we could be. We never knew we'd be able to share little things that others outside of this site don't care to hear, so we wouldn't even mention it to them. We never knew that what we might say might influence someone's day. We never knew we had the power to make someone smile, until someone here thanked us for brightening their day.
For listening to our silly stories...we thank you. For all your kinds thoughts and hugs when we had bad days...we thank you. For all the times that someone celebrated us, or brought smiles to our faces...we thank you. For all these things we never knew that we never knew...we thank you. For making this a wonderful 2008...we thank you. For being our friends and being part of our lives in such a special way...we thank you. For holding a special place in our hearts in a way only you can...we thank you. And we love you.
Happy New Year , dear friends, and may good times and smiling faces continue in 2009. The sad times will come, as they inevitably do. But we'll be here to hug and listen. We'll be here to try to cheer you when you need it. We'll be here...and it's because of you.
Tipper, Maxxie, Gypsy, Kitty, Sandy, and Gracie
