Mammals

Our beautiful boy...
Smokey


We had him in our lives for 15 years and then quite suddenly had to say good bye 4 years ago...I think I will miss his little paws forever.

Comments

Our 4-legged loved ones are very special, aren't they?

He certainly looks a real cutie
Yes, they are. He really was adorable...and knew it. He loved to pose for the camera and would not move until the flash went off. Sometimes when I was not using flash, I would have to make it flash or he would think I had not taken the picture and would seem disgruntled.
He was beautiful.
Yes, he was...thank you!
He was very cute - and clearly a perfect model.
Thanks! Yes, he loved to pose. I have a funny story about it actually...

When he was about 3, a local pet store was offering pictures of your pet with Santa and donating the proceeds to a shelter. We thought this a good idea for including in the Christmas cards, so took him over. We got there and realized they were using a Polaroid camera (yes, I am old.) We waited in line and watched the owners of the other pets and the people taking pictures become increasingly frustrated, because the animals would not sit still, wanted to run off or maul Santa. We get to the front of the line and they ask how many pictures we want. We say "8" and they look at us like we have lost our minds...we then quickly amend it to, "as many as he will sit for." We give him to Santa, my husband stands behind the photographer, Smokey looks right at the camera, and flash, flash, flash...we have all 8 perfect photos. You should have seen their faces. It was pretty funny. My husband gathered Smokey up, I grabbed the pictures and we laughed the whole way out the door.
He is absolutely adorable.
Thank you!
