Happy New Year’s Eve fellow hound lovers!

Howllo Fellow Hound and NYE lovers: Well it is finally here! The day and night Devon and I have been waiting for. It is the unveiling of our FirstGiving page for the House of Puddles. It is our New Year’s Resolution to raise 10,000 for the HOP in 2008. What better way to kick off the party than with a sock hop!


I am not going to unveil the page until the West Coast, aka Devon can join us. We are having an early NYE party because the Hoppers can’t dance too long! Check back all day long for fun stuff. The video I made is not to be missed!

Devon please tell the party goers what you are doing tonight and where you will be reporting from! She is going to have a blast!

More Later…Cat, Chaps and Emma

    WOO! The Hoppers are SO excited about their New Year’s Eve party. We will be checking in all day. Post your comments – it can be like a chat!

    Oh, and please send some drool for Hermey today. It’s a big day for him, too. He’s being tutored!

    Henry sending drool for Hermey. I was so glad to see pics of him up on the website. He looks like he might have gained a few pounds too! Give Rudolph and Hermey a kiss from me!

    Hi Fellow Hoppers!

    I will be reporting tonight from Agoura Hills, CA where I will be seeing my favorite band – Cheap Trick! 🙂 I am dedicating their song “I Want You To Want Me” to all hounds young and old that we will meet in 2008!!!

    PS: Love you Hermey!!

    Rudolph needs a special HOP song dedicated to him tonight! So many people love that sweet smoochy face and are hoping that tomorrow turns out perfect! I just think that he & Gail could be the pawfect match.

    my fingers and toes are crossed that all works out great for Gail and Rudolph tomorrow. I am so very glad that I have met that smooshy old boy. Love is sitting in the middle of Marilyn’s floor and belly rubbing and getting kissed by bassets, bassets and more bassets.

    I am one sock short!! I found the remains of it in a pile of yucky stuff. No one will confess to the crime so maybe I’ll make them ALL come to the HOP with 3 socks.

    Doesn’t that seem like the only fair thing?

    And Cat – what time is the virutal Beef Wellington being served?
