His name is Imago and he was about to be hitched to a cart to take some people from Paris around town!
So, given the weather, #1 decided to go back to our archive and find a nice sunny, and very manly, picture of me!
Now #1 keeps telling me that being manly is not just a question of leaping about catching Frisbees and tennis balls. She says, in fact, that the most important thing is to be a gentleman! For example, she has been teaching me to be respectful of all creatures and things, starting with pussycats. No chasing, although an offer to play is OK. I used to have so much fun last summer playing outside with my brother Sen-Chan. Here is an archive shot of one of our adventures:
Of course, the hardest thing is birds since I was after all designed to "spring" them. The other day, I heard a noise in one of the hedges and quickly "sprung" a half-grown thrush. #1 was all over me, telling me not to touch it. It was cute as a button:
And I was congratualted for being such a gentleman because I sat there, next to it, and just let it be. #1 loves birds, and I need to please her!
