as told to Mieke Tazelaar
For Monet’s sake, I also appeared (or rather, disappeared) at the Christmas concerts, where Judy sang a solo every year – White Christmas, accompanied by Pam on her cello. Judy has a beautiful deep contralto voice, and she brings the audience, and me, close to tears when she sings this song.
Monet was happy to be back at Arrowhead, taking a walk and greeting old friends. He has suggested to Judy that she comes back several times a week so he can ride in the basket and take a walk to sniff out the old territory. I hope so! I miss him, and Judy would like to stay connected, as well, with her human friends.
*snortle: 1) Combination of a snort and a chortle, often accompanied by a trajectory of coffee ejected from the nostrils. 2) Combination of a chortle and a snicker – not quite as volatile.
