The little hippo who turned up at our house yesterday lost his shyness when confronted with all the other hippos here and he turns out to be named Alcide. He was sold into slavery (at a secondhand store) by his last owner and was found and brought here by a friend of my owner's OH who knew that this home is a sort of hippo sanctuary.
Today my owner got a nice surprise in the mail: presents!
There was a bag of candy that was for my owner's OH, but I got to taste the candy too, it was yummy!
I secretly think it's a very beautiful kit, but I'm not telling her because I'm afraid that might mean I'll have to wait for my surfing pig even longer.
And now a sneak peak of things to come:I got an update from cousin Moira about how she's doing in Canada, so I'll be making a post with her pictures and stories soon.
