Happy Hoildays to all and all their precious Labs...I know my Christmas is a lot merrier since I got Mercedes... I got her in 2004 Oct...so this is her 3rd Christmas with me>> must admit >> I went overboard on toys this yr. so I packed up a lot of her toys that were still in good shape ( she is bery good with her toys) and took them to our local animal shelter, they were really so glad to get them. At least on Christmas Eve , a poor lonley dog will have a toy to cuddle with. My one wish for 2007 is to hit the lottery and build the best dam shelter money can buy for the homeless animals. and then buy my Mercedes a Mercedes :P
