This is my 1000th post! So I thought I’d celebrate by enthusing precipitously about my puppy-to-be.
(since I’m too busy to post dolly peektures. we’ve been preparing for the imminent arrival of mama-in-law!)
Here’s my list so far. Please feel free to vote, comment and suggest! You can kind of see where I’m going… all the little monster names I could come up with were too masculine, so if any of my fantastic friends can suggest girly ghoulie names, please do!
We put a poochie “on hold”… she needs to heal from an incision to check if she was fixed (she was) and my mother in law is coming out next weekend, otherwise I think I would have brought her home right away!
Um, not sure if she’s going to be photogenic. But she is the sweetest thing ever in person, and yes… very cute, if a bit gargoylish. Like that is an issue with me :p
Her name is currently Kanga, and she has the longest li’l chopstick legs evah! She’s about 3 years old and weighs out at about 7lbs. When she was brought to the shelter a month ago in the south bay she was way under 6lbs and had been seriously neglected. Tthe edges of her ears are all pinked. Given that, you’d never know it by her shining personality! We visited for about an hour with her and her foster mom (who is very cool). Never a peep out of her except when her stitches pinched she yipped a bit. She was super friendly, cuddly and kissy, but not freakily so. No shakes and she plays well with others. She totally made herself at home on my lap and gnawed on me a bit with soft bites.
Speaking of her teeth… I don’t think you can really see it in the pictures we took, but she has an underbite (just like Zman!) and so has the crookedest little smile. It makes me so happy! She’s got big eyes and a white, white belly. The foster says we’ll have to be careful about sunburns. Since me and the Mr. are both pale pink people I think we can relate.
Jabber-jabber. In any case, she’s ours if we want her, I just have to be patient for two weeks :p Mr. Kallisti is “a bit more than indifferent” which apparently a good thing.
Oh, and omg… I don’t know if this has anything to do with her stitches or what, but she was doing the funniest walk, like a bat, almost walking on her knees. Like an obeisance walk with a “I’m scratching my belly stictches” belly drag walk. She looks like a little creamy bat. She has the prettiest coat, white and butter.
She’s the cutest! Really!
Now I get to spend the next couple weeks doggie stuff shopping. Weee!
She was my true love, for so many years.
When she was about a year old, she got out of the house for a night and I couldn’t find her. Late in the evening I heard the howls of love and when she came back in the morning I was sure she was pregnant. She got kinda fat, but not super bloated and then, one day, she had a kitten. One. We kept waiting for more but that is all she had in her. I gave him to my roommates at the time and they named him something I can’t spell. The vet said he had never heard of such a thing. One kitten. She didn’t care much for mothering. Her brother Flea, a big black gentle dumb kitty, did all the nurturing. Zman would climb in the basket to feed and then Flea would climb in and do all the cleaning and loving. Sweet Uncle Flea. He disappeared in ’98 and I still miss him desperately. They were very close, he was the only other cat she could ever tolerate. They would curl up together, yin and yang.
2-D kitty! Soon after this she got an infected uterus and we had to have her entire womb removed, poor thing, I should have had her fixed, but I used to love watching her go into heat. After the surgery she then got fat. A tiny leetle butter ball. But before that we always called her the 2-D cat, famous for her little sticky-out chin, you can really see here. We called her Pete Puma.
She was so perky after the surgery. But has gotten more and more finicky this past week. We haven’t been able to get her to eat the past two days and she’d become a bit incontinent and had more difficulty than usual walking.
My kitty has gone to heaven. We’ve been together my whole life and I’m saying goodbye.
Circa 2002, butterball style, with her fancy blue rhinestone collar that matches her eyes. I’ll keep it forever.
Not one, but two unbearably adorable kitten peektures.
Biscuit has taken to cramming himself onto my little doll couch. I think I’ll have to buy him one of these. Meh.
I finally found a real nice vintage Japanese doll case for Gram’s ichimatsu doll on eBay. It is tagged “occupied japan” in the back so is the same vintage as the doll even! Biscuit is funny. Just like the carriage, we put him in there and he seemed happy as a clam to stay.
Been so busy, with projects, work and family. But caught Demelza looking serene this morning. For kicks I finally tried her on the SD13 body and she looks fantastic! Ondine, however, is not enjoying being stubby. Looks surprisingly ok though.
Never would have thought she’d look so fetching as a blonde. She’s also wearing a pair of lovely mauvy purply brown glass eyes I picked up from Gloria on DOA. They’re reeeeeally nice!
Also, FINALLY got the volks msd outfit from Kyoto 3. I hadn’t seen it anywhere! St. Trinian neeeeds it. Now, I need those creepers.
And yes, that is the only non-Liz thing I’ve bought since my vow! Go me.
And then there’s Biscuit. Just for hoots we put him in the doll carriage the other night, and he sat there for about 10 minutes! His butt just fit in there. Amazing. He was quite happy.
