It seems lately that with radio stations, retail, Internet ads, and television that we move straight from Trick or Treat to Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. With all that we have to be thankful for, it's a shame that Thanksgiving is getting lost in the Christmas crunch.

The economy has not been kind of late, many more of us are doing without or learning to live in a new normal. Most of us reading this however, are also aware that there are many others, both four footed and two who have it much worse than we do. We find ourselves being a little more generous and doing what we can to help those less fortunate and amazingly feel better and happier for it.

This year BTRNC is thankful for the many new members we have added, for our sanctuary dogs who are still with us for one more holiday season, for high kill shelter dogs we were able to save, for all our foster dogs, all our volunteers, friends and supporters.

Our foster dogs are thankful once again for warm places to sleep, laps to cuddle, human and canine friends to play with, regular meals, needed medication and surgeries, and as always, most of all LOVE!!!!

Gizmo is thankful for warm blankets and rays of sun!

Prissy is thankful that even know her Foster Mom can't imagine

why she has not been adopted, that she has a warm loving place while she waits!

ducky is thankful that when things didn't work out at his adoptive home

BTRNC welcomed him back with open arms and hugs!

Dora is very thankful to be safe and in foster care

and knows that her forever home cannot be far away.

So, please accept our thanks, gather with your families, friends, co-workers, those less fortunate, and enjoy Thanksgiving and give it the place of honor it deserves.

And of course afterward, please feel free to shop our Christmas Card, auction items, and 2012 calendar and/or check out our available dogs page. If you are able and are so inclined, please also check out our Chip In Program to help us cover the ever rising vet bills this year.

Thank you for this blog. I have two Bostons in Huntersville, NC. Chloe is in her 16th year and is legally blind, completely deaf, and has oral cancer. We are helping her along since she still has good spirit! Bella is in her 9th year - still a puppy and sweet as can be.

Boston Terriers are the best breed.
