Today is the last day of the year and each member of the Poupounette gang is posting a photo from 2015 and their thoughts and thanks for the year.
Tommy: It has been a wonderful year for me, except for when #1 was gone (well, except for when my sister and niece came to stay). I think I loved my time on the beach in the summer the most, but the Japanese festival was pretty cool too. I am thankful that I can go almost everywhere with #1, including the pizza rsetaurant!
Tama-Chan: I am thankful to have a wonderful home and a #1 who spoils me, including feeding me my meals on the windowsill in the cat run when the weather and time permit. I am also thankful for all the lovely spots in the house where we can enjoy sunpuddles.
Sei-Chan: I am thankful that #1 still loves me even though she couldn't catch me to take me to the vet for my shots this year. I love crawling into her bed when she is asleep and cuddling up against her. I am also thankful for my woofie Tommy who is always there for me.
Da Beebs: I am thankful that #1 still loves me even though I have left unwelcome deposits in various places in the living room over the past few months. I am thankful that she tried to understand and talk to me about it through Fern, a nice lady animal communicator. I am thankful that my Mama Tama and I are having a truce but most of all, I am thankful for my #1.
Da Genj: I am thankful that the world is full of people who love me and want to cuddle me. I am thankful for each and every cuddle, and for all the yummy food I eat, and for all the cuddles.
Vidock: I am thankful for the amazing year I have had and all he fun stuff I got to do with Uncle E, Mr. I from Japan and Mr. JPD, my dressage teacher. I am thankful for my #1 who always wants the very best for me. I guess one of the high points of my year was when I was part of a guard of honour at the exit of the great mass at Chartres Cathedral.
Violette: I am thankful for all the great moments I shared with #1 in 2015. I had fun when we took part together in the World War I commemorative parade, but I have to say that the absolute highlight of the year for me was taking part in our version of the Japanese festival, Chagu-Chagu Umakko. I was so proud to be wearing that finery and I know #1 was very proud of me, and I was so thankful for all of that.
Trav: I am thankful that I have found a safe place to be, with good food and a warm and dry bed. I know I am still not letting #1 close to me, but I am thankful nonetheless.
#1: I am thankful for an amazing year filled with adventure and the companionship of Tommy, Tama, Sei, Beebs, Genji, Vidock, Violette and Trav. It is a privilege to share my days with them, and also to share them and their adventures with all of you.
