Morning Angel

don’t know if any of you remember the song “Morning Angel” or not.  some of you may not be old enuff either but i couldn’t help being reminded of it when seeing Bethany in the morning the other day.

a bit of a sleepy face going on.  just examplified how i was feeling actually this past sunday.

don’t let the pics fool you tho, in this shot she is keeping a close eye on something she spies!  what it was i have no idea!

it  moved!

morning Bethany!

The Moose

Moose is like a bull in a china shop.  if he’s headed your way, something is bound to get knocked over, sent flying. possibly even ruined.

notice the schmutz on his nose? not Moose...i removed it for him.

..and i swear he's flipping me off here for mocking him about the schmutz lol!

nothing Moose does is small.  everything he does is big….annnnd clumsy.   the same is true of his ability to love.  abandonment what’s that?  you would have thought that this kid’s start in life was heaven sent.  not so…but that doesn’t stop him from loving u, and when he does it’s BIG!  Moose’s motto in life?  “who loves you baby?  ME!!” (in a Barry White voice).

altho the obvious is he's taking a bath, i couldn't help wonder if this was a silly impression by Moose of the gun toting character on the screen.

most of the time, like 99%, you don’t even know what’s hitting you until after the impact on your arm, lap, head, face, shoulder- until a few seconds after it happens.  by that time, Moose is lavishing you in kitty drool, kisses, headbumps, and rubs. yes.  i did say drool and for a kitty it’s LOTS!  it’s on your hands…your face.  oh the kitty kisses.  MOOSE kisses.  big. wet. slobbery.  well for a cat they are! and don’t forget the fine layer of kitty hair left on you from his contact!  in  your mouth, on your face…everywhere!

one of my favorite things about Moose. his nose and the colors in his face.

armpit: check!

and it never fails.  his need for affection morphs into a need for play/bug you, whichever you prefer to call it.

here! let me help you!

let's see what happens when i hit THAT key!

as confuscious say “one must have great patience when faced with the Moose”.  ok well maybe confuscious don’t say that but still…you get the picture.

what does this button do?

MOOOOSE!!!    …sigh

Teddy B. Remember Me?

so it’s been quite some time since any news has been given on Teddy.  you remember Teddy don’t you?  well he decided he was my dog Shyler’s cat, and with no one applying for adoption, i decided to let his decision stand.  (i didn’t have the heart to seperate the two!)

well the little guy has grown quite a bit!  take a look!

there is something very peaceful and serene about Teddy.  when i look at him, i can’t help but think of Budhha and/or the serenity prayer.  he has virtually no enemies here.  gets along with all dogs and cats, and is never the center of any drama.  perhaps there’s an old soul in therebut his beauty surpasses just his looks.

he will occassionally talk and it’s usually when he wants something.  it’s a high voice and very sweet.  watching him play is a joy because he’s always 100% Iin the moment.  i’ve never seen him hiss at anyone, bite, scratch, or get angry.  he’s not a cuddler or affecionado, but will sneak up on the bed and cuddle up to you and sleep at night.  he  has more recenlty begun to appreciate a little attempts on my part at affection, such as a gentle pet or a neck scratch.

his soul is void of any malice.  just full of warmth and light.  it is truly amazing, and the calming affect when he’s near you is quite the experience.

ahh Teddy B.  what an experience.
