..and special people like you.
We're hoping that everyone has a grand Thanksgiving! Thanks so much to our pals 'Sampson,' 'Tommy Lee,' and 'Gina Marie' for sending us this nice Dachshund Hallmark card in the mail. And there's some truth there - "It's all about the thanks."
We're incredibly thankful this year that your 'Long and Short of it All' host 'Joey' is still with us to celebrate this holiday season. It was so touch and go with him and his medical issues this year - a virtual rollercoaster of emotions - as regular readers of this site know. And thanks so much to everyone for all your support during those troubling times. It was all your well wishes and prayers that helped pull him through to recovery - we honestly believe that, and are forever grateful. And also thanks to our local friends who helped out with Joey or offered support - again, we are eternally grateful.
Thanks to all of our regular readers who have stuck with us over the years, and those who share the site with other folks; thanks for all the comments on the posts, and thanks for all the reader submissions. We're incredibly behind with submissions - there are probably 40 or 50 in line for posting - we're hoping to get to each and every one in the near future. We're also incredibly behind on hundreds of e-mail replies for the site - but appreciate every letter that we get. Joey and Maggie need an Administrative Assistant sometimes!
And finally, thanks so much to the lovable Dachshunds who fill our lives with such pleasure and joy. Remember to keep those chairs pushed in at the dining room table tomorrow to avoid any jumping up of the little beasts who would love to take their turn at that turkey! But surely the little ones deserve just a little sample (or two!) at some point during the festivities.
Have a great Thanksgiving - may you and yours be healthy and happy. What are you thankful for?
