For years we had three boxers — Jillie, Juliette, and Big Moe. After they crossed the rainbow bridge, our hearts seemed to ache permanently, and we swore we'd never replace those dogs. But, eventually, we met Fetty and fell in love again.
We weren't looking for a "Christmas Dog," but it was Christmas time, and we decided to pick Fetty up, after the holidays.
We weren't hiding him from our kids — some of them young adults — we just never mentioned it to them.
Well... they must have sensed we were ready for a new companion, because on Christmas morning they presented us with the most cuddly and friendly little black bear of a puppy — a Rotty-Dane Mix — they rescued and had been hiding at Grandma's house until Christmas morning.
When Monty popped out of the box they handed us, we looked at each other in surprise, but without revealing our secret. We decided to go pick Fetty up that afternoon and surprise those kids right back.
Needless to say, it was a Christmas to remember.
We present you with this festive blend of coffees from Brazil, Peru and India — named for our holiday surprises — Fetty & Monty.
