This is what Sen-Chan and I looked like back then:
Alas, our wise and sweet Sen-Chan is no longer with us, but his spirit of reaching out and befriending everyone remains central to the Poupounette, which was originally named for him, as his nickname was "Poupounet."
And we are so happy to have now with us our two beautiful girly girls, Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan:
But more than anything else, dear friends, we are happy to know all of you, and for the windows into your lives you have opened up to us. Writing this blog has been a rich and fulfilling experience, and we look forward to much more of the same in the coming years.
Finally, we would like to pay a special tribute to our first blogging friend who is still blogging. We did not know him then but he came to visit us and left a comment, and he still visits us regularly. Thank you, awesome-pawed ANGUS MHOR, for being our friend!
In conclusion, as it is Monday after all, I thought you might like a Manly Monday photo of me looking all grown up and seriously manly...
PS: WELCOME HOME, LASKA!!!!!!!! HURRAY for the Power of the Paw!
