Updates on foster mama Boudica and her kittens over at my place.  Before you go, though, bear in mind it’s not 100% good news.  Still, I had to share, and there’s plenty of kitting for everybody…

Hmm?  Whaa?
…Oh.  Sorries.

As the cliché goes, we’ve been up to our eyeballs in alligators.  (Hmm, maybe shoulda used that as the photo?  Dunno.  Can’t think yet.)  Wasn’t what you’d call a relaxing weekend.  Updates a-comin’ though.  This one’s from the San Francisco Chronicle again… gotta love ‘em.  Photo of Mei Xiang snapped by Ron Edmonds (AP).

Go outside! It’s Duck Day!!

OK!  Buddy check!  Does anyone NOT have BOTH field-trip buddies?  Everyone check now, left and right, human and avian… nobody missing?  Are we ready?

"How much farther?"  "I’m hungry!"  "Dewey’s PUSHING."  "He STARTED it!"
"I need a restroom!"  "You’re a DUCK, stoopid."  "Are we there yet?"

You. Will. Pay.

Well, y’know, son, there’s yer garden-variety disapproval. Ayup, there surely is.  We see a lot of that, round here.

Once in a blue moon, though [lowers voice, looks right into you] a situation demands… condemnation.

Boy, I hope you know what you’re doin’.

Willow Wabbit, post-sinkbath.  Schmoops walked in and said “Here, hold this.”
He was honestly a lot happier about it than he looks.  [snicker] – T.

Here he comes
Here comes Wet Dachshund
He’s a dolphin with a wag
He’s a dolphin and he’s gonna be swimmin’ after someone

El_perro_japan_2He’s slimmin’ on down so you better look alive
He’s faster in the water than a fighter at Mach 5

And when the odds are against him
And there’s dangerous work to do
You bet your life Wet Dachsie
Gonna hand yer ‘tocks to you
