A Belated Christmas Entry..
I'm a great believer in luck, and I find that the harder I work, the more I have of it...
-Thomas Jefferson

Where do I start..
First off, I want to wish each and every one of you that read my blog a belated Christmas Wish..
A wish of love, happiness and joy to you and all your loved ones. That you count your blessings and cherish your moments.
May all your dreams and wishes come true..

Just a little update...
I got to Boston and all the animals were delivered to their new homes. I then got really sick. Cold, Flu, Sinus infection and now Pneumonia. I couldn't drive home and spent Christmas there. As yucky as I felt, it was truly wonderful seeing several of my animals in their new homes Christmas Eve. I have had several reports and all are doing great.
It was bitter/sweet in a way, my travels with the animals took me away from home and my loved ones this holiday season.
But I have to believe I was where I was suppose to be...
I have the best friends in the world, they took great care of me and I'll have a wonderful memory of a New England Christmas!!

Gwen & Nettie wrote me a letter, thanking me for their new home. They were quite the hit of the Christmas Eve party. Mingling with everyone and Suzi had to keep an eye on them, for everyone wanted to take them home.

Merlin & Majick are having fun following their new parents around, demanding attention and getting into all kinds of mischief.

JoVee is have a great time with her new owners, their kids and her sis Spaz.
I wonder if she has a Red Sox jacket yet:)

Scooter had a bit of an adjustment to the snow, he wouldn't go poop for 36 hours. Poor guy, being a southern dog, he would run out, see 18 inches of snow and then run back in.. He finally went:) But never once had an accident.
He now is doing his duty no problem, of course wearing his winter coat.

And Lexi is walking nature trails every morning with her new dad.
So all is truly wonderful for them and I will get to see all these guys again!!

I just got back yesterday, spent most of my day running around getting my animals from the vet clinic and checking in with our animal controls. Took in a few more today..
I will be getting ready to transport next Thursday and then I will need to rest a bit. This pneumonia is kicking my butt:(
I haven't been sick like this in years..

We have gotten some wonderful gifts and this is one of two beds donated. As you can tell they really love these Coolaroo beds!!
Thank you Cheryl!!

This is our Super Darling, Sweet "Hazel". She is going to have her last heart worm treatment this week and then will be up for adoption. Great dog, loves people, smart, housebroken and loves sleeping in bed. She is a Beagle/Cattle Dog mix.
Approximately 3 years old, about 35 pounds.

"Pong" is a Siamese male. Approximately 2-3 years old. He was mauled by a dog and the animal control officer called me to see if I could help this poor guy. We tried to save his leg, but the damage was too extensive and it had to be amputated.
He is sooooo loving and talks alot. Mister purr machine is doing well, adjusting to his surgical procedure.
It will be about 3 weeks before he is ready for adoption, but we are taking applications for him now.

This is "Pepper". She is a female Cocker Spaniel, approximately 3-4 years of age. Great dog, loving temperament!!
Loves to play ball. Fantastic with people and dogs.

"Harvey" is Pepper's pup. He is 7 weeks old and total cuteness!! I did not have his tail done, so he will have a long tail. I just can't bring myself to dock pups tails. I figure whoever adopts him will love him tail and all!!

"Yam" is just the coolest!! Male, Corgi/Beagle mix. Approximately 2 years of age. Super busy and loving!!

"Chi-Chi" is a female Chihuahua mix. She will be going to Georgia to my sweet friend Bella.

Last but not least, these darling German Shepherd pups. Ingrid is a female approximately 10 weeks old.
Smart and busy, busy, busy!!

"Hugo" is a male, German Shepherd, approximately 10 weeks old. Laid back and loving.

In the next few entries, I need to post some thank you notes, to some Amazing kids, and to those of you that made donations to "A Place To Bark" this holiday season.
The time has really gotten away from me.
We have taken in so many animals that I didn't even get to put up any decorations, no Christmas tree, presents or cards.
I'm not sad though, we saved many animals this season and made many people's Christmas wonderful, with new furry family members:)

More news to come, but for now I need to get some shut eye...
Much Love to you all...
so glad you are OK. you take it easy, try not to over do it!!
sending love
Merry Christmas to you too Bernie. I am sorry to hear about you being so sick and stuck away from home. I am glad to hear you were with friends, who looked after you, and shared their XMas with you. I am loving the pup pictures as usual. I would love to have Pong the cat, if nobody else wants him, who lives closer to your normal route. I am in western NJ. I currently have one large dog, one small 3legged terrier, and one cat. All get along with cats and dogs. One more cat would be fine, as long as it is good with dogs and cats. If the traveling logistics are not good though, I would understand.
HUgs for fast recouping for you...I hope the New Year is an amazing year for you!

i'm so sorry you're sick! i hope you take time to recover and recooperate. all the pups out there need you to be better.

happy holidays bernie. thank you for everything you do.
Hey Bernie,

Love the new pictures. What beautiful animals. You are truly amazing! Your loving heart and generous spirit is exceptional. Not many people would run around checking on animals being as sick as you are. The animals are so lucky to have you in their corner.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart for saving all of those animals! My two dogs are rescue dogs and had been badly abused by their previous "families" (if you can call them that) I hope to open a rescue one day when my two legged children are older.

I will continue to keep you and all of the helpless animals in my prayers every day. Many many blessings for you in the New Year!!

glad you made it home!!! called you the other day, call me whenever

and TAKE ABREAK!!!!!! the universe is MAKING you take a break by being sick so listen to them. YOu dn't want to end up in the hospital!!!!
