As long as we are here with the great friendships we have forged, and the love of Christmas, we already have broken all the records we need too.

hiya sorry when you said did i read your post i thought you mean the 1st one only reading this one now

Come on , i no you can do this but really you have to not get stressed, and i no thats easy for me to say , i can do very easy but i was trained for it, so what am gonna say is please try and cut the stress, and you really do not need someone shouting at you
And i no wish is stressed to but its not hurting that much it wood be the same as a human, dogs do have a thing about even a wee pain ,
My advice wood be to talk to wish and pet him make him feel relaxed show him the needle, make sure he is confortabale when your doing it, by the way where are you putting it ???. as well if you pull the skin up a little like massage it before hand, it can sometimes dumb the skin or you can use maybe a ice cube
Last resort the vet should be able to give you a wee cream or a spray that you can use to freeze the skin so wish wood not feel it going in, as i no where your coming from about not wanting to hurt him, take the needle easy i wish i you were near i wood do it for you everyday
As well i can see why your huring your stressed your trying your best and there is not way anyone should be shouting at you, it so unfair i really hope he said sorry and mean it

TAKE CARE AND HUGS

Time to bring out my new desk calendar! Every year for a Christmas present, my mom buys me the Thomas Kinkade desk calendar. I just revealed the first picture and it is pretty with lots of snow!

Speaking of snow, I'm a little tired of it here. It has been nonstop since the day after Christmas. I am not the biggest fan of snow, except on Christmas Eve/Christmas, of course. Since my dad drives for a living and my brother has a long commute to work, I don't like to have to worry about them on the roads. We still have over a foot on the ground and it doesn't look like it's going away any time soon.

I am excited for our dinner today. Anyone else eat pork and sauerkraut? This dish is supposed to bring good luck for the New Year. It was a custom started by the Germans and then continued by the Pennsylvania Dutch. And no, I am not Pennsylvania Dutch. I am just Pennsylvania I know plenty of you will be cringing and scrunching your nose at the word "sauerkraut" but the trick to make it taste good is to drain it and rinse it in cold water at least 3-4 times. This gets out all of the awful bitterness and then it tastes amazing when you cook it with the pork!

I hope everyone has a great day!!!
Same as it is every year, ball drops, everyone hugs and smooches, music that sounds extra crappy. TV host getting drunker. (Jenny McCarthy last night) She seemed blitzed by 1 am. Every year is almost like Why did I stay up and watch this?

I am very pleased to say that it is gone I have to work a few hours today as tomorrow I am going to the store for a day of stocking and rearranging. Even though it is dusty work, it should be a lot of fun! While I am out, I am going to check a few stores to see if there are any Christmas goodies leftover.

Take care, everyone, and have a wonderfully MERRY day!!
I will probably go Christmas clearance shopping on Thursday, after I renew my license.
