Arwen's Pack was so awesome this season by thinking about our troops and the dedicated K9 soldiers stationed overseas, that they sponsored a care gift package drive that we participated in. "These men and women, far from home and family, need all the support we can offer," said Arwen's Pack hu-mom in a blog post. "They're risking their lives each day, while caring for and working with their dogs, just hoping to make it back to their families intact. Please consider them while shopping over the next week. Along with the stress and uncertainty of living in a merciless and unfriendly environment, these handlers and their dogs deal with boredom and homesickness."
So we hope we can help by bringing a little Christmas and holiday cheer to the troops this year, too, by joining Arwen's Pack in their gift package drive!

We had tons of fun, too. Me with the shopping for items, and the Sibes with helping me fill the stocking and treat bag with all the goodies (and maybe sniffing out a few items for their own Christmas list!).

All five Huskies even gave the box a good once-over before it went to the Post Office to be shipped out. We sure hope a little box of "thanks" from home will cheer up some of our troops, two- and four-legged this season, and let them know we are thinking of them and appreciate their sacrifice.
|"Are we delivering the package by sleigh???" asks Wolf.|
|"No," says Gibson. "Mom says the Postman is bringing it."|
Thanks, Grace and Arwen's Pack, for doing such a thoughtful thing. We were very happy to be part of it! And thank you to all our men, women, and K9s serving our country. We will be thinking of you this holiday season.
