Happy Birthday, Violette and Vidock!


#1 here. I am still stuck in the rehab facility but there's been celebrating going on where the horses are! Yesterday was Miss Violette's birthday, and today is The Big V's! Both of them are 14 years young! They have both been in my life for many years. I first met Violette when she was just four months old, and Vidock joined the Gang at the age of 17. months. How quickly the years pass! Sadly, I don't have access to my full photo archives, so there won't be any baby and recap pics.

One of the highlights of both the Vs' past year was parading down the Champs Elysées in Paris, wearing full Japanese festival costume.

Here is Violette, with the Arc de Triomphe in the background:

And here is The Big V:

In contrast, the past year has been fairly quiet. The two have led pretty laid-back lives in. their fields, with looking gorgeous being their main preoccupation.

Miss Violette:
