Please pray for us. Our Miniature Schnauzer, Schotzi, passed away on December 14th. He was almost 15 years old. This is so difficult, especially thinking of opening gifts because Schotzi opened his own Christmas presents every year.

"Now it came about in those days that a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth. This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. And all were proceeding to register form the census, everyone to his own city. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register, along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child. And it came about that while they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her first-born son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn."
For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mightly God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

I made this sweater for a Christmas present for my new puppy, Rhea.
She is a 6 month old Border Terrier. She seems to love the sweater. She doesn't chew on it or try to get out of it. Thanks so much for the super easy pattern! Happy Holidays, Diana Carlisle

Hi. Yes, I did make my dog a sweater
using a red/white/blue variated yarn by Red Heart. Her name is Buttercup.
She's a golden retriever mix, small for the breed. She always wears a scarf
of some color, but to have a sweater like her people do! She just loves her
new sweater! She sits up on her hind legs to ask to put it on before we go
for a ride in the car. She weighs 28 lbs and is about 14" high (on all fours),
so I had to make some adjustments. It's the same style as the one Shotzie
has on. How fun! I really enjoyed all the pictures of the different dogs in
their sweaters too. I got lots of new ideas. They all look very proud in them.
Thanks for having the patterns on the internet. I can't wait to make more
Lnooking for things to make for one year grandbaby and other people thanks

Trying to convince
him further she noted, "Now the mother worm is looking all

"No, she isn't," said Johnny.
"How do you know she's not?" said the mother.
"Because I ate her first!" answered Little Johnny.
There were three men sitting on a bench. Man1 asked the other two:
"What do you want your family and friends to say at your funeral?".
Man2 says, "I
guess I'd want them to say I was a nice guy and I took care of my family".
Man3 says, "I'd want them to say things like that too".
Man1 says: "That's
all nice, but me... I want them to say -

A burglar broke
into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around, looking for valuables,
and when he picked up a CD player to place in his sack, a strange, disembodied voice echoed
from the dark saying, "Jesus is watching you!"
He nearly jumped
out of his skin, clicked his flashlight out, and froze. When he heard nothing
after a bit, he shook his head, promised himself a vacation after the next big score, then clicked the
light back on and began searching for more valuables. Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could
disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard, "Jesus is watching you!"
he shined his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice.
Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot.
"Did you say that?" He hissed at the parrot.
"Yep," the parrot confessed, then squawked, "I'm just trying to warn you."

"Moses," replied the bird.
the burglar laughed. "What kind of stupid people would name a parrot Moses?"
The bird promptly answered, "Probably the same kind of people that would name a Rotweiller Jesus"!
