We received a gift...in more ways than one....

The doorbell rang 452 times yesterday and the dogs barked 455 times just to be sure we knew the relief UPS guy had left a package.

What we found was a letterbox that held a gift from our daughter Christine. She had designed and made a book for us about our Peteylove.

It's a lot longer than these few photos pages, but you will get the full flavor of her love for Petey, Violet and us. There are times when the love I feel for Chris is overwhelming. Everyday her thoughtfulness and tenderness is with me in large size and then she goes and jumbos these qualities.

Petey has brought so much joy and love into our lives and we wouldn't have him if it wasn't for Chris. Kiss, kiss my sweet girl.

What a great gift! You know, I think Petey is more Bichon than Poodle. He's got a Bichon face and tail. He's a cutie!
