As always, the Patrick’s have a lot to be thankful for—our wonderful son and special daughter, our three great grandchildren, Cole, Chloe and Cameron, our many friends and our good health.
Janice and I are also thankful this year for our newest members of our family—Blaze and Pepper. They have been with us a little over a week but they have firmly cemented themselves as members of the family—all 2 pounds 3 ounces of Pepper and all 2 pounds 5 ounces of Blaze.
All three of our grandchildren have played at the base of our kitchen table so it is only fitting that Blaze and Pepper also do so. Da’Girls are a real joy. Although we have papers saying that Pepper is 100% toy poodle, I know that she is really 50% toy poodle and 50% turkey. She is everywhere and into everything. Blaze on the other hand is Miss Sweetie, most of the time. Of course there are times that Blaze thinks that she has to act like her sister. Janice and I have spent many hours playing with them and watching them run around our house.
In the photo, Pepper is on the left and Blaze, who has a little white on her chest and the tips of both of her back feet, is on the right.
Enjoy and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
