Goodbye 2013

Here we are at the end of yet another year. They certainly go by faster than they used to.
It's a time to sit back and think over the events of the old year. 2013 wasn't as awful for us as 2012 but there were definitely highs and lows.

We had to say goodbye to some dear ones, both family...

and friends.

As the year comes flying to an end, we are thinking about some friends who are in need of special healing thoughts. Please take a moment tonight to send some to them.

The year wasn't all bad though. We got to make new friends, too.







We even got a chance to welcome some new family members.

So for the last time this year, all of us at the Portie Blog wish all of you a safe, happy and healthy new year. We know you'll all have lots of new adventures to share with us and we look forward to reading all about them and sharing ours with you. Thank you all for visiting with us.
Morgan, Fudge, Tess, Lola, Bailey, Noah, Norma Jean, Sebastian, Sydney and Mackenzie and of course Sue and Rob

Christmas Enchiladas

OK all you pups out there in Blogville, gather around and take notes. We had the most perfect Christmas dinner ever and I'm going to tell you how to make it so you can have some too.
First Mom cooked a big pan of rice. While it was cooking she cut up some turkey and threw the pieces in with the rice. Then she baked a sweet potato and when the rice was done she mashed up the potato and stirred it into the rice.
When it was all mixed up, she put the potato, rice mixture on some tortillas.
Then she rolled them up and put them on a pan.
She put some cheese slices on top and put them int the oven till the cheese got all melty.
When they cooled down a little, Dad cut them into slices, 20 slices.
We each got two slices of enchilada on our dinner.
The little girls ate upstairs with Dad but if you want to know how they tasted, here's a look at us eating our Christmas enchiladas.
After about two minutes here is the empty pan.
And here are our empty bowls.
Mom got this idea from Dr B. When my tummy was sick a couple weeks ago she fed me rice. Dr B told her to put a little sweet potato in with the rice. He said it would taste better and was good for my tummy. Mom thought it would make a good treat and added the tortilla and cheese. She says it's an easy and healthy treat so we can have it again soon. We can't wait.
Your pal, Fudge

Merry Christmas To Us

What a great day!!

After we all had breakfast and Mom and Dad had their coffees, we went outside to play but we knew something was up. When we came back in Dad brought our toy box into the living room and put it in the middle of the room.
Look at all those new toys.
Everybody picked out a toy and some of us picked two or three, right Mac and Sebastian?
Here's what it all looked like.
Norma Jean remembered to thank Dad.
Santa even remembered the birds. He brought them this new toy for their cage. They all sat on the top perch watching it all day. They were afraid to go down and check it out, but Mom says by tomorrow they'll be chewing on it.
We had cookies too.
We gave Dad this pillow for Christmas, but we didn't really mean it. Sebastian even took a nap on the pillow this afternoon. He said it was pretty comfy.

Mac and I had a good game of tug.

Sydney doesn't handle stress too well and Mom kept an eye on her. She got a little tired after all the excitement.
This was really fun, but the best part was Christmas dinner. It was so special. I'll tell you about it tomorrow. Got to go play some more.
Your pal, Fudge
