: As the new kid around here, #1 thought it would be fitting for me to be the one wishing you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR on behalf of the whole Poupounette Gang.

#1 and Mr. Floppy Ears came to see me yesterday. It was a little embarrassing as Viking and I were having our afternoon nap, pleasantly sprawled on the straw.

But she said not to worry and to just relax, and that this was a good opportunity to get some close-ups of my beautiful (!) head. Do you think this is my best side?

Or should I go for the profile shot?

Anyway, back to today! You know by now that #1 has a thing about Japan. Over there, they use the western calendar in combination with the old Chinese zodiac, which means that the YEAR OF THE RABBIT starts today. So, we have a special New Year's card for all of you!

We're all looking forward to lots of fun blogging adventures in the coming year!


  1. We think the profile shot is nice but the first one is the BEST :)We know someone who was born in the rabbit year and it is not grandma..ssshhh...

  2. Happy New Year to you Vidock and to the rest of the gang. That big straw bed looks nice and comfy.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose
