Merry Christmas to All!
Merry Christmas everyone! Things here are slowly becoming normal. We've decided that since Barney is gone, we're going to start taking Java with us when we go places, like to family's houses for holidays. She was always a good traveler, unlike Barney, so it's pretty easy. When it's time to eat, we put her in her travel crate and she goes to sleep. She did very well last night at Sarah's with Elizabeth the human niece and Katie the dog niece. Java growled at Katie once in the beginning of the evening, so we just let them be in the same room together without getting too close to each other. After a while they got used to each other. Elizabeth was very excited to have a new black doggie come visit and she spent a lot of time petting her, not always so gently. Java reacted very kindly and let Elizabeth do her thing. This morning Robert and I played Scrabble and watched "A Christmas Story" a bunch of times. I made green bean casserole for the first time; it was a special request. So we're relaxing and having a pleasant morning. Best wishes to all of my readers for a happy, healthy and prosperous new year!
