Monday missive from Avalon!

Avalon,  " Hello friends! I thought I would give you an update on my progress here in my new home. Since I came all the way from Spain, there were a few adjustments I needed to make before I felt completely at home in my new home! At first I was really scared and I didn't know where I was and what had happened to the people who had been taking care of me or what had happened to all my doggie friends from my rescue in Spain! "

Avalon, " But I quickly realized I was on a new adventure and that my new family was very loving!" 

Avalon, " Wilhelmina was kind to me right from the beginning. She let me take her bed, and her bones and toys and she even let me monopolize LP. Here we are scenting together. "

Avalon, " I found a stick!"

Duffy, " My sisfurs get along very well and love to play together. Wilhelmina has been very patient and kind with Avalon. I am proud of her. As her big brofur, I feel I have taught her well! Avalon and I love to snuggle together! Malou and Levon have also been accepting of  Avalon and she of them but we don't have photos of them snuggling together. Yet!"

 Bedheads snuggling together in front of the heater.

Avalon, " I love my toys and I love my bones. I especially love antlers and yak chews!"

Avalon, " Don't tell Santa, but I am not always nice. Some times I am a tiny bit naughty. I have redecorated,  destuffed a few toys and had some accidents inside the house. Also, I some times have selective hearing when I am outside. But LP says I am doing very, very well all things considered!"

Avalon, " Here I am jumping for joy. I am happy!"

Have a Marvelous Monday!
See you soon.
