for those of you sweet enough to inquire (or bored enough to keep on reading) about the state of animal relations here at the atelier, things are progressing nicely. richard has come out from under the bed, and as of last night we even had a brief episode of "getting to know you" nose touching. of course, this was followed by a hiss 5 minutes later, but still, we are pleased with the state of détente between the two little beings, and foresee full diplomatic relations in the near future.
as for ted-a-licious, he is adapting very well, thank you. he is a snuggle bunny extraordinaire, and when on the bed with me, prefers to have the entire length of his body, from nose to tail, pressed up to my side. he also refuses to let me out of his sight, and i'm cool with that, so have been doing lots of work here around the atelier or going on ted-friendly errands- he's been through a lot of strange places in the last month, so i want him to know this time, it's forever and neither of us are going anywhere any time soon. he's made friends with the other kids in the neighborhood, and we are even going to attempt runyon canyon park again soon- maybe since teddyboy is a little more comfortable, the walk amongst all those other peeples and doggies won't be quite as scary.
m21 is a gay man "d'un certain age", so of course, we've been humming this showtune classic 'round the atelier for the last two weeks; but m21 doesn't want to ruin his ENORMOUS street cred with this admission, so he'll have y'all know he's also been singing a little hip hop too: "ted doggy- do-o-o-o-o-o-og" to the tune of snoop dog's "who am i (what's my name?)". ;-)
have a great weekend, kiddos- the three of us here at the atelier sure plan to!
