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

It was a good and sad year--but most are like that. We're hoping the good outweighs the bad in 2014.

All the best for the coming year.

Mom has been very sad this holiday, but we are all getting her to be upbeat for the new year. Hard to believe how many losses there were and how many pups are in need of the POTP from among our small group of pals. We thank you for remembering both Thunder and Ciara.

Happy New Year and all the best in 2014.

Sue, I have been having these same thoughts all day about the additions and subtractions, not just in our household, but in others too, and the other bloggers who may be facing a loss too. Thank-you for remembering our crew in your post today, it means a lot to have them remembered by someone like you (and others) who know how precious each 4 legged family member is.

Here's to a good, or maybe a better year for you, me and everyone!!

PS: THANK YOU for the great card you sent at Christmas too! :-)

Hi Sue what a wonderful post of remembering. We missed so much this year with not being able to blog using my laptop. I tried using my new phone and who Ohio it worked. Joe to try and catch up. Wishing you and yours a very special New Year. I think you were one of the first to visit us. Thank you.

It is always sad to see our friends leave, and frightening when they are ill. But the love we share keeps us moving forward.

Thanks for remembering those we lost and thinking of those who are struggling with illnesses, Sue.

Thank you for including Wrigs. He is feeling a little perkier after having a blood transfusion on Friday.
