#1 here. We had already prepared the post below when we found out that sweet NIGEL from Cory Cat Blog had very suddenly left for the Bridge due to congestive heart failure. This is such a shock for everyone, starting of course with his loving family. Nigel had a hard early life and hung around the yard for a couple of years before he allowed himself to be trapped. He had just celebrated his fifth Gotcha Day. Nigel, we are so glad you were Gotcha'ed by such a loving family, and knew nothing but love for the five years you shared with them. We will miss you, sweet buddy, and send our softest purrs, woofs and neighs, as well as our biggest hugs, to your whole family.
Tom: Fair's fair and today is definitely my turn to go first in Manly Monday. And I have a very manly activity indeed to share with you. I went logging!
I really love to go logging but this time was a little less fun than usual because, after we got there, the guy organising it said I wasn't allowed, so I had to be locked up in a car most of the time. But #1 didn't dawdle and, on the way back to our car, she disobeyed (!) and let me off leash for a while. I thanked her by posing nicely for her.
And, by the way, one of the horses logging was the Big V's Daddy, Orgueil. Isn't he handsome?
Vidock: I am very proud of my daddy and hope to be just like him one day. For now, though, I am still considered too young to pull heavy weights like that. Maybe I can get a start on it next year.
Don't you like this photo? I love the way there is a ray of sunshine that comes across my head!
And a little close-up, just for you:
Genji: I think this photo shows off the glorious colour of my furs beautifully, don't you?
And here, for your viewing pleasure also, is the perfect Genji Sleeping Circle!
Da Beebs: I never seem to get mine quite as tight as Da Genj. Maybe it's because I am a lot longer?
But here is my latest handsome boy shot for you:
Wishing you all a happy Monday and a great week!
