"mr. fraidycat, tear down that wall!" (with rap and showtunes!)

there has a been a thaw in the cold war.

we CAN all get along!

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.

ted, getting to know his cousins, sam (in the back) and maria (the lil lady in the middle).

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!

Richard finally relaxing, Sam and Maria coming to visit, I bet Ted's in heaven. Actually, I bet you are too. You all enjoy your weekend!

oh...Richard is giving up. It's not fun to be under the bed alone all the time. I'm so happy that Ted is making himself at home. That's so funny that he won't let you out of his site. So sweet too.

Things are looking good. Richard just might start snuggling pretty soon. Under the bed is sooooo boring and lonely. Have a great week-end. Mary

oh, they are going to be best buddies before you know it.

Wonderful to read that Richard and Ted are acclimating to each other a teeny bit. Thank you for giving Ted a forever home, and for being so patient with him. (He's adorable so I bet that's not an issue.)
As an animal rights advocate, I read a lot of sad, sad stuff. Your tales of tails always make me smile.

My word, m21, would NEVER have guessed you were gay... Love both clips (was quite the glee club geek myself and, thanks to my three kids and my secret fantasies of being a sexy 20-something again, I love me some Snoop Dog. Though I'm careful to hide this in public, lest a girl of mon certain age appear as desperate cougar-esque suburban housewife). Huge congrats on the shelterpop mention!

I have been waiting for this update! And I am encouraged by this recent turn of events....a bit more time and they will really begin to enjoy each others company. Sweet little Ted...finally making himself at home in your life.
