Even though most of us look forward to the holidays, sometimes they can be stressful and depressing. My dad has dementia, and as if that were not enough, we are a large blended family of jews and christians, carnivores and vegans, red and blue state people, the observant and the “who cares”? But one thing that makes everyone feel good? – puppies! So here is a moment of zen to brighten your holiday.

Feel free to share profusely. Life is so much better when it’s shared.

So Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and festivus for the rest of yus.
