The Greatest Gift EVER!

So later I am going to post about the enormous haul of presents I am SURE to get (in addition to the haul I have already gotten!) But this morning I got just the most awesome gift from Narra, Jackson and Upchuck and Buko (in spirit).

Meet Marley! He lives at the Best Friends Sanctuary and now I am his sponsor (in a rescue kind of way, not in an AA kind of way). Thanks guys! And I know you picked out a rescue dude who looks like me so my ma ape would get all sentimental and give me loads of loving. Mission accomplished!

Here is all about my new bud Marley:

Marley's a hap, hap, happy guy! He's a 65 lb. lapdog who wants to give you all of his love. He is very joyful, and wants the world to know it. He'll talk your ear off if he can; if not, he'll happily cuddle with you. Whatever Marley does, he does with great exuberance!

Marley is a Chow Chow mix who was born in 2000. He was adopted as a puppy, but then his people moved, and his talking ability caused problems. Neighbors didn't appreciate Marley's conversational skills -- his barking was too much for them. So, Marley lost his home and came here. These days, he can talk all he wants. However, since he has plenty of company, he only talks when he wants something... food, lots of food! He's a bit of a chunk, but has slimmed down since he first came. He has a thyroid problem, so gets medicine to control it, which has helped his weight. He also adores going for walks. He gets so excited, his whole body wiggles with glee, and it can be hard to leash him. Wait for us, Marley! If you can keep up with Marley, he'd love to be friends, and have you for his sponsor.

Your friends give the best presents. How could anything else you receive top getting Marley to sponsor? He will now benefit from your vast knowledge on almost any subject know to ape or otherwise.

Woober Boy!

Your buds sure know how to give gifts! Marley looks like our kind of guy. Little does he know he has the best sponsor possible.

I'm with Ms. Brador in my wishes for the best Christmas for you and Ethel, your ma ape, and whoever that other elusive ape is! (Just who IS that other ape? Inquiring minds want to know).

Goober love & Christams smooches,
Stanley (& my girl)
