    As we bring 2007 to a close, we'd like to say thank you to each and every one of our readers, our contributors and the members of our forum family. It's been a fabulous year in miniatures and 2008 promises to be even better.

    From all of us at Greenleaf, have a happy, healthy and mini New Year!

    Pet friend of the Month The Critter Corner!
    A House that's Juuuust Right!

    Mama Dot seems to have found the perfect sized house for herself. She seems to be considering the interior design and décor. I'm sure Shaci, her helpful human decorator will work with her to come up with the perfect little home.

    Thank you Shaci for sharing such a great picture of Mama Dot with us! Mama Dot will receive a $25 gift certificate from Petsmart for being the December Critter of the Month.

    If you'd like to submit your pet's picture for consideration for the Critter Corner, you can upload pictures in the "Good Pets acting bad!" or "Good Pets acting cute!" galleries at the Greenleaf Forum.
