#MicroblogMondays 26 – Happy Two Years!

I can scarcely believe it, but it’s now been two years to the day since we happily added Felix, Oscar, and Grisabella to our little family. Yes, two years already! Time certainly does fly – or, more accurately (at least in our case), race around the house in a furry frenzy.

Oscar, Grisabella, and Felix – February 23, 2013

If you didn’t happen to follow Alphabet Salad back in those days and would like to know the story of how our little guys came into our lives, I have just the post for you – check it out!

While we were heartbroken to lose our lovely Grisabella to illness this past summer, Felix and Oscar in all their fluffy, mischievous, affectionate, playful, sweet ways are still very much a central part of our lives, and it’s hard to imagine our home without their personality-filled presence.

The two of them joined Peter and I for most of last evening as we watched the Academy Awards show (the whole reason Oscar got his name!), so I took the opportunity to capture them in dramatic black and white.

They are our gorgeous boys, and we’re so lucky they found us!

    Those pictures are gorgeous black and whites. Nope we’re not pet friendly at all. Only recently have I been able to bear with dogs of friends. Allowing them to sniff and lick me is a huge thing for me. The kids love them though. Who knows one day we might get around to having one of our own.

    They are adorable, Laurel! 🙂 I thought you named them after the Odd Couple though. LOL I’m sorry for your loss of Grizabella. 🙁 Losing a pet is like losing a child and only animal lovers understand that. We had our own black and white beauty for almost 16 years – a Dalmatian named Tasha. After she died we decided not to get another dog, but thanks to my dog business, we have them in the house all the time. Best of both worlds. It’s like being grandparents. We have lots of fun and then they go home. No vet bills!

    Gorgeous pictures of your boys! Especially love the one of Oscar! We have Aldo in our life. Can’t imagine life without him. (Old English Sheepdog). He’s the last pup from our last litter and he’s getting to be an old man.

    They’re adorable! I especially like the Oscars night photo – Oscar would be a natural on the red carpet.
