Smile Thanks and Happy Holidays from Marko!

On behalf of Dave (The other admin) and myself I'd like to wish all our members and guests amazing holiday wishes and a happy new year.

I've said this before but on a personal level, this forum is one of the most satisfying parts of my life. The spirit of giving and community is so strong here. The selfless advice that comes from members is INCREDIBLE.

Thank-you many many times over for providing such amazing pet information to pet lovers from around the world. One by one, pet by pet we ARE making a large difference in how individual people see and treat the dear pets in their lives. I'd like to send out a special thank-you to all the regulars that drop by daily or almost daily to share information and pics.

....and speaking of pics - my wife and I do take some kooky pics with Ziglet...here's one that I wasn't sure of because I look like so nutty, but what the heck, it seems to have become our holiday pic for 2007...happy holidays everyone! Only the best for 2008!

What do you mean kooky, If you were not kooky at some point in your lives then you would not be who you are today

People who own pets are at one time or another kooky (in a very nice way)...

you do an amazing job Marko, and (the other admin, mods)

Happy hoildays to your family from mine and of couse Bree

A big thank you to you Marko, I think everyone would agree that this board brings us all together and lets us share our ecperiences, ups and downs with people who understand! I love this board! I love being able to talk about my critters without feeling shy or silly about how much I love them!

So big cheers to you and your family!!!

And Happy Christmas to you, Marko, we know you and the other mods work hard to fight off hackers and hawkers, so we can have this everlasting conversation on our favourite subject.

Ziglet doesn't look too thrilled. Bet that pose didn't last for long lol.

Merry Christmas to you as well, Marko and family. I love Ziglet! Thanks for making a newbie feel welcome.
Assumptions do nothing but make an ass out of u and me.

We can stick our heads in the sand for only so long before it starts choking us. Face it folks. The pet population is bad ALL OVER THE WORLD!

I think we are all a bit kooky,at least I've been told I am
But that's what makes your Forum great,a whole bunch of kooky animal-lovers,who understand our worries and often-times paranoid concerns.
To you,Dave and your families

Merry Christmas! I love the picture, btw. The hat is awesome. And I'm glad to know we aren't the only ones who dress up our cat.

The reason a dog has so many friends is that he wags his tail instead of his tongue.

I believe there is something in the rules about solstices that require some nuttiness...at least, that's hazel's story and she's sticking to it!

That is a dynamite picture, marko! Happy Holidays and thank you to you, Dave, and the whole board. This place is absolutely amazing!

Lettin the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin it back in.
