Fluffy Blast From the Past

Pearl here!

We met a new friend this week named Rusty, a Yorkie who reminded Mommy of her childhood dog, Bonnie. Bonnie wasn't a Yorkie but she looked a lot like one. She was actually an Australian Silky Toy Terrier.

Mommy dug out some pictures. This is Bonnie in her wicker basket bed. She looks cute but I sure wouldn't like a wicker bed! I like my beds as soft and squishy as they come! Bonnie, Mommy tells me, loved her bed though.

This is Mommy and Bonnie - notice Bonnie's hair? Yeah, we did too. Let's just say we're glad we don't have long hair or you just know we would have spouts.

Bonnie had two litters of puppies. Mommy doesn't remember which litter these little cuties were from but she does remember everything about them - from the way they came to be (a Yorkie male came over one day. Mommy wasn't alllowed in the basement), to the litter box Grandpa made to the way they scrambled around the kitchen floor. Mommy didn't want the puppies to ever leave but if they didn't, Mommy's family would have 7 dogs!

This is Mommy's bike and Bonnie's puppies. Hmmm...I think they are little to young to go riding, Mom!
