    They're all looking great LadyHawk! None the worse for wear from that long journey in the spring. Call me woman! I assume you still have my number. I've just gotta tell ya all about my Brutus and Chief! They're Thor wannabe's! [​IMG] Certainly in the spoiled rotten category, and definitely headed that direction in the cuddle up with momma department too!

    Lovin' that Athena girl, but I'm really nuts for Severus's colors and patterns! You can keep Thor though. It's not that I wouldn't love to have him, but I love life to much to jeopardize my own in trying to take him away from you!! [​IMG] What a big sweetie! [​IMG]

    Jeeper - Thor is a Splash Orpington his parents are both Blue Orpingtons. [​IMG] I will try to get a pic of him beside me but I am usually the one taking pics. hahahaha But this will give you an idea of his size...this was him at a little over 3 months old...and me holding him...he is a real armload now.

    [​IMG] should just come on over here and get Severus...I will send him home with you. He is a handsome boy for sure. He and Cheyenne are having problems right now...he attacked her yesterday after he attack the little cochin girl. I was the one shoving him back and pulling him off the baby but he went after Cheyenne. I stepped between him and Cheyenne and passed off the baby...Severus was bowed up but did not charge me. Not sure if it was because he knew I would stew him or because Thor jumped him and beat the snot out of him before he got the chance. Thor was ticked off when he saw Severus all puffed up and facing me...he just charged over and jumped on Severus and whipped him good. He was as sweet as pie to me today so who knows...I think Cheyenne babies the roos too much as babies personally.

    CoyoteMagic - Thank you for the compliments...Athena is certainly her mother's daughter....she just thinks she is too good to be touched or handfed. She waits for Thor to give her the treats...rotten girl.

    Thor has the most perfect comb until he was jumped by 2 male broodermates at once. One of them took the blade off his comb...needless to say I have neither boy now they were rehomed for their tag team efforts.

    This is when I was cleaning him up from that sneak I was ticked off the whole blade was ripped off by Draco while Thor was facing off an attack from Sirius. They both went to new homes for that.


    Serrin I am ashamed to say...I cannot find your number [​IMG]

    Kathy - Fattie and Cannonball were in the back up on the second floor deck where they are not supposed to be. Bad children those two are. I will gladly add Zane to my flock. *snicker* I would take Fern too. Cyn, best keep both eyes on me when I go to pick up my baby(ies) and DeeDee. muahahahahaha

    Cetawin- those are great pics. I hadn't realized Thor was so tall! I have got to go measure Ultrasuede and see if I can figure out a way to weigh him. He HATES being picked up, and I don't like to do it because he and Luke think it's a disciplinary tactic and Ultrasuede does NOT deserve to be humiliated. How the heck do you weigh Thor?
