May this holiday season bring you great joy!
May all of your experiences, with friends, families, pets, and even enemies, be peaceful and happy.
May you finish the year 2012 doing exactly what you wish to be doing, and may you begin the new year filled with renewed energy and hope.
Let all days be merry, regardless of holiday, and may all companions in your life be as loyal and loving as my own “little heartbeat at my feet.”*
*A phrase attributed to Edith Wharton, describing her own (many) dogs.
