Dear Brittany, 

Hi! It's me Woody!  Just wanted to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and let you know how well I am doing !  It has been 8 months  since my two Moms (Marilyn and Ruthie) and Benji came to the Hollywood Feed Store in Germantown to meet me and  adopt me.  Gosh, there is so much stuff to tell you .  Benji and I are the best of buddies and I love playing with him and chasing him and following him and curling up next to him to take a nap.   Our Mom's give us both lots of love and attention and get a real kick out of watching us play together and also watching us walk on our Doggy Pacer treadmill together . That's right we have a doggy treadmill so that we can go for walks together in a nice cool environment in the summer and a nice warm environment in the winter.   We also have back pack carriers so that we can go for bike rides with them when the weather cools off and they also bought us both great new jogging strollers so that they can go for walks in the cooler weather and can take us along in safety .   

Our Mom's have been feeding me very good food and have found that I like a little coconut oil mixed with my Fromm nuggets, they bought me several varieties of nuggets. I also like the occasional small lick of plain Greek Yogurt and I have followed Benji's lead in learning to like eating small pieces of strawberries, blueberries and apple. By the way, I haven't eaten any more squirrels but I sure have tried to catch quite a few along with Benji , and between the two of us we keep a close watch on all of the local squirrel population as well as keeping a close eye on the cat that lives next door. Our Moms bought us two cots to put at the front windows of the house so that we can sit or lay there and watch the front of the house, plus they raise the blinds on all of the windows on the front of the house so that we can run from window to window and keep watch if some squirrel starts to run across the front yard we can follow him from one end of the house to the other barking like crazy which is great fun for both Benji and me.   

I have been sleeping with my Mom Ruthie at night and I try to be a good bed partner, but she sometimes tells me I'm being a bed hog. Ha! I tell her, how can I be a bed hog when I only weigh 12 pounds !  I sleep good and always like to snuggle close whether I'm sleeping in bed or sleeping on the couch I like being snuggled against either Benji or one of my Moms.  

My Mom's said they will attach a couple of pictures to this so you can see me now and you can see I have been busy !  I sure am glad that I finally found my forever family and home !  I love my family and my home and I give Benji and my Mom's as many kisses as possible every single day and they give me lot of kisses and love back too!  Just wanted to say thank you to you for taking care of me until I finally found my forever home with my two Moms and Benji .  Please say hi to any of the other rescue pups that you have that would remember me and tell them that I hope they get a great home with lots of love like I've got.  

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2018! 

Love, Hugs and Kisses

Woody Hirth

Marilyn and Ruthie and Benji Hirth too!!
