Manly Memory-Lane Monday!

Tom: We thought it would be fun to run a series of "then and now" photos for our post today. I shall kick off with this photo, taken in May 2008:

And this one, taken in April this year!

It looks like my ears have grown, doesn't it?

Let's take a look at our big V, VIDOCK, in May 2009:

And in April this year!

We think he wins the prize for the biggest growth spurt!

Next is The BEEBS. Here he is in April 2010:

And in March this year!

And finally our little GENJI in July 2011:

And in April this year:

We hope you enjoyed this little stroll down our memory lane. We had fun looking through photos! We also wanted to include our three "Memory Boys" who are no longer with us.

IKKYU, #1's first-ever pet, and first Aby, who shared her life for 15 years:

SEN-CHAN, aka "Poupounet" who gave his name to this blog:

And YUU-CHAN, the sweetest boy ever:


  1. Oh my gosh! How fabulous are all of these! Although I must say seeing Tommy's head only floating in a sea of tall grass is too fabulous!!!

    Have a lovely day, everybuddy!

  2. We loved all the before and after pics. You men at Poupounette central are all gorgeous.

  3. Aww, such great pics to have around. The Poupounette has no shortage of manly handsomeness!

  4. I think those pictures were precious. Mommy does too.

  5. Oh those pictures were a lot of fun. It was great seeing the difference over the years. It is great how foals are one color and grow up to be another color. Have a great day.

  6. We enjoyed seeing how you had all changed - we were surprised how much lighter Vidock's coat is now. We didn't know Ikkyu or Sen-Chan but we do remember Yuu-Chan - it was very sad as he was far too young to go to the Bridge.

  7. We love strolling down memory lane with you. Grete is laughing because she says she can imagine Tommy popping up out of the grass and then disappearing...begging for a chase!

    We remember your precious bridge angels.

  8. Such a lovely stroll down memory lane. Thank you!

  9. We live the photos. We think Vidock is eating miracle grow

  10. J'adore les poulains et Vidock était .... craquant au possible.
    Genji .. joli petite frimousse de fripouille..
    Ikkyu ... je ne sais pas pourquoi, mais je trouve cette photo trés émouvante. Ce chat semble dégager une impression spéciale. Une sorte de paix, de sérénité.
    Une belle idée ces photos.
    Bonne soirée.

  11. I love these before and after photos! I remember Yuu-Chan... he was such a special kitty.

  12. So fun to see the then and now, especially the HUGE change in Vidock. We know how special Yuu-Chan was to you too.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  13. All oh so sweet and amazing! Thank you for posting them!

  14. It was so fun to see the before/afters - and we are so glad to have the opportunity to meet the ones who came before. We know Ikkyu must hold a very special place in #1's heart.

  15. We loved seeing how you've all changed. Vidock definitely had a very impressive growth spurt.

  16. Oh! Oh! Oh! Mommy is squeeing with delight!
    (And so is me)

  17. If you Aby's had that big of a growth spurt, #1 would need a much bigger house!

  18. I have to say the teenie tiny Vidock made my mom go squeee! What a difference a few years can make.
