Grace brings us face-to-face with aging as she relates her experiences, her memories, advice for surviving the aging process...with Grace. This is a place for humor, sharing, and learning as well as what I hope are some entertaining meanderings of my thoughts.

Our Christmas Letter


Woof! Woof!

Let us introduce our furselves…

I am Jacob.  I am 9 and the prettiest one! 
 I am Moses, the old guy at 13 & the handsomest dude! 
We adopted our new people, Pat & Walt in January after our owner got very sick and couldn’t care for us any longer.  They are now well-trained in the treat department and are very good to us.  So, we are surprising them by paw-writing this letter to you. 

It’s a good thing we were around to care for these two helpless humans!  In February, Walt developed swallowing problems.  After several procedures, and even a feeding tube for 6 weeks, his weak esophagus is under control and as long as he eats slowly and carefully he doesn’t have any problems.  We were by his feet every minute of the way, making sure he ate on time, took his meds, got enough rest and petted us from time to time. 

Once Walt was on the mend, Pat developed health issues.  For the last 6 months she has been short of breath, fatigued and a few other things.  All the tests and various doctors have yet to find the problem(s).  We can tell when she is having a bad day and we make sure to stay close to her just in case she needs to pet someone.  We heard her say she has more doctor appointments coming up. We are hoping she gets her energy back so we can play with her in the backyard again!

Pat’s been blogging for more than a year now and finds it is a good creative outlet for her.  Her Grow Old With Grace blog has quite a few followers and new-found friends reading it daily.  She uses Grace to tell stories, give advice and humor to help with the aging process.  The Green Living Thrifty Frog blog is about her journey to “go green” around here.  So far this hasn’t affected us much, but they are composting, recycling, and making homemade laundry soap, dish soap & dog shampoo.  We were the test dogs for the shampoo.  It works great!  The newest blog is Pat’s Travel Talk blog.   Pat has also written articles for Exploration Travel Magazine, an online magazine.  This was a new and exciting adventure for her!  We hope she can get back to it when her health gets better.

Wishing everyone a Merry Woof-mas and a Happy New Year filled with fun, family, friends, peace and joy!  God has been good to all of us at the Mallett household and our Blessings are many.  We count you among them.

Jacob, Moses, Pat & Walt

  3. Hi Jacob and Moses,
    I am so glad you are with my two sweet friends, Pat and Walt. It seems that you have been great for them and I appreciate the good job you are doing.
    Be sure to let Pat and Walt that we are still praying for them. We are praying for you as well because I am sure our Lord placed you in their home to let him know what is going on.
    God bless the four of you with a Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year.
