This is our last post before we take a short break from blogging to celebrate Christmas with our loved ones. We will continue to share adoption appeals from shelters via twitter throughout the festive season and hope that all those souls currently in shelters will find the loving homes they deserve.

We want to say a huge thank you for all the love and support from the wordpress team, our followers and our fellow bloggers and we wish you a blessed Holiday Season and a very happy New Year.

With love from us all,
Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx
