Meet Lyra (named for the heroine in the His Dark Materials books), our 14-week-old Dutch/German Shephard Christmas puppy. She's sweet, smart, feisty, and already loved by us all... 

...even Suka.

COVID Christmas

Like many other families, I'm sure, our holidays this year were not at all what we have been used to. Things had to change. We all did the best we could. We found the magic, we made the most of everything, and we ate way, way too much. 

Santa brought us something extra special, though, so even though our hearts were heavy with the change of our long-standing traditions, there was still a little brightness... 

...and she's been good for all of us so far.
