Goodbye 2009 and Happy New Year

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass,
It's about learning to dance in the rain."

Hi dear friends,
Well 2009 is almost gone and Mommy can't wait for it to be over. 2009 was not a very happy year for the family. We lost 5 dear family members and the pain is still with Mommy and she prays that 2010 will be a better year. We are going to end 2009 with my bestest city friends and start 2010 with my country friends. So bye bye 2009 with a dachsie playdate and hello 2010 with a really big dachsie playdate tomorrow.
The decorations have all come done a work except for the reindeer on Mommy's desk and she said she's not taking it off. She is kinda strange like that.

My sweet Mona had a wonderful year. She made lots of new friends through DWB and spent many happy hours playing with her bestest friends, George, Harley, Bandit and Brooklyn at Judy's where we have both been treated like part of the family. We were able this year to visit Mona's boyfriend, Sammy, and his family in the country many times and that rocker on the porch always makes me perk up. Strange but then you gotta take pleasure where and when you can. Mary, Dachsie Rules Mom, told us about DWB and made it possible for us to have you, the wonderful DWB family, on our side. DROH volunteers stick together and thanks to their support I have not gone totally mad this year but as important as them is you. I appreciate every kind work from everyone of you and your families. All it takes is reading a few blogs and I smile again.

Be safe and see you next year!!!

Love, kisses and {{{huggies}}} to all........Mona and the Mommy, Sarah too

Here's to another year of friendship and smiles and holding up each other through the trials. Over the past year you have brought us many giggles, some laughter and always a feeling that the world is a better place because you are in it.

I have a feeling that 2010 will be a good year for you! Sometimes this bad luck stuff happens all at once, and when it's over, then you can relax and enjoy happiness and peace.

Hope this new year brings you good health, happiness and wonderful times with family & friends!

2009 was definitely not the best year for most of us around DWB. Here is hoping 2010 will be great. Maybe in 2010 Mom will finally get a Tanner flower pic for you! ;)
