little(er) me

Massah couldn't sleep last night, so I stayed up with her. I'm not sure she appreciated it, but I was just trying to help her. We laid in bed and I stared at her all night long. She kept glancing at me out of the corner of her eye, trying to see if I was still staring at her. And yep - I was. All night. She'd try to move me so I couldn't see her, but I'd just move my head so my beady little eyes were boring into her. And then she'd turn over so she couldn't see me, but every time she looked back, there I was - staring at her. Eventually, after a few hours, I moved on to licking my arms. She didn't seem to like that any better than the staring. I wasn't bothering her - what was the problem?! She was just being difficult for some reason. I don't know why. *shrug*
Anywho, there's another game going 'round where we post pictures from our puppy-hood. I didn't find Massah until I was older, so she doesn't have any pictures of me as a wee pup. But here are some from our first 2 days together:

I think I've posted these before, so bear with me if I'm repeating myself.... You'll notice Fig is right there beside me. She didn't like me. At all. She actually tried to eat me through the crate when she first saw me. She got used to me though. Hee! Here's our first "family picture" from the day after I came home:

You'll see that my skin looks really different - I was never outside before I found Massah, so as I was exposed to the sun I got more and more tan as time went on. When I first got home I was whiter than white! And no freckles!

I had sores and infections on my skin, so thankfully Massah doesn't have too many pictures from those first few weeks! I was a mess! But I sure was happy!


How time flies... it's been over 9 months since I've found her!

Tad, you look great with a tan & freckles!!

And it's so great to hear what an awsome family you have found. The last human you lived with didn't sound very nice at all. How dare she treat you like that!?!?!

But Massah obviously takes super care of you! Just look at your smile!

As for Fig, well, siblings aren't suppose to like each other. At least that's what I've been hearing. But deep deep down inside, Fig loves you to death!! They just don't like to show it.hehehe.

Luv,
Tobes

So glad you have such a great and loving home Tadpole:)

Mom tries not to let me go out in the sun too much especially when it's really hot out...not sure what she expects, I do have FUR to protect me! Mom overly worries about me!!

BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)
