2010 What a Year!

We drove to our home in Puerto Rico as fireworks displays lit our way. Falling in love with the street dogs of the island led me take an animal control course in San Juan. A chance to experience San Juan and make friends opened a new door.

This is the year I officially became an animal activist and animal control officer #10. My cause became Spay Is the Way Puerto Rico.

Four months in our tropical home gave us an idea what it would be like to live someplace other than our home of almost 30 years in Yorkville. January to April could not have been better.

Our golden puppy, Shaker grew into a handsome dog. He lived with a couple of rottie ladies, but remains a momma’s boy.

Summer in the Midwest hanging with the dogs under the trees, can’t be beat. Best party of the year honor goes to Jim & Teresa re-nuptials on the shore of Lake Michigan. A perfect day to celebrate love.

A week on Norris Lake we were happy and in love again. Kirt’s family reunion is always a highlight of the year. Missed his nieces and nephew this year; It would be a joy to have the time to get to know them better.

Once back home in Illinois, work began and never stops. Personnel problems were the bane of my existence. Now, we have 2 new guys, who are doing fine. We miss Linda, who has been here for 6 years. Pray for her health, a big battle looms for her.

Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad,

God bless, best wishes for you and yours in 2011.

2011 Imagine that. Xoxo Tricia and Cool Dude Kirt
