its visible attitude

mr. cheevers

jean cocteau once said “i love cats because i enjoy my home; and little by little, they become its visible soul." i raise my coffee cup to that and have to add that i love chihuahuas because i enjoy my home; and a lot by a lot, they become its visible attitude.

a few months ago, boothe begged to keep picasso at his apartment. as much as i miss mr. peepers, i know that boof needs to have a little slice of home away from home with him. for Christmas, v gave me this awesome papier-mâché chihuahua that she made in honor of picasso.

we have been missing our visible attitude something fierce and adopted a fosterloved chihuahua yesterday. yes, another one. pearl is attitude galore and came home to a cat who thinks he is a dog, a cat who knows she is better than a dog and a sister and brother who already adore her.

love bounces off the walls here. the fur does fly, but that is why God made vacuums.

Oh, Picasso, I'm going to miss you and your soulful eyes when I next visit.

That papier-mâché chihuahua is incredible! Wow, what talent! And I totally get this post, and a hearty "yes" to the last line of it. Happy new year, Dawn. :)
