Did you gorge yourself as much as I did this past Thanksgiving? I’ll admit, I was a bit of a downer–my dog went missing the day before and sadly is still missing. We are on Winnie Watch, and even sent out a Pet Amber Alert for her (didn’t know they had those!). Fingers crossed and hearts open that she comes back to us safe and sound.

Missing dog aside, I do have a lot to be thankful for this year, and one of those things is you guys. Without you, I wouldn’t be writing this blog. I’d probably be jotting mad thoughts in a diary only to forget about it and never finish them (like all of my diaries of childhood). So thank you for being there–for being so supportive–in commenting, sharing, twitter-ing, and facebook-ing. You’re wonderful and I feel like I’ve gotten to know so many of you regulars. I’m blessed to have you as a part of my life.

    Oh, so sorry. I have two dogs I love. Can’t even imagine how I would feel about that. I love that sweater over the shirt. You look very nice.

    I’m sending positive thoughts your way! I had a cat run away once — she was spotted 7 days later only a few blocks from the house. It was the huge posters hanging around the neighborhood that helped. (And Happy Thanksgiving!)

    I’m not sure what part of Houston you live in, but my neighborhood (Braeswood Place/ West University) has a person to contact for lost pets and he sends out emails with the lost pet info. If you are anywhere close by send him an email. He is amazing and works tirelessly to help reunite lost pets. TIm Hebert: Email me if you want more info or his phone number.

    I hope WInnie is home soon.

    I’m so sorry about your dog… how awful. My heart would be broken and I just saw your status :( :( :( I wish there was something I could do to help, I would be lost without my pup. Glad to hear you had a good Thanksgiving regardless. Keep your head up sweetie.

    Wow I really hope your dog makes it back to you guys!! I am a pet owner and I would be devastated. Even though you are probably sad on the inside it doesn’t show in the photos you look amazing. You are in my prayers.

    We think that my boyfriend actually does have “Holiday Heart” – he gets intense heart palpitations after a night of drinking so he has to cut alcohol out of his life. I had never heard of it before until he finally read it in one of his USMLE study books haha.

    I hope your dear pup comes back to you soon. I couldn’t even imagine :(

    I hope Winnie comes home : ( I can’t believe someone had the audacity to take her! Have faith & you will get her back.
