My precious Peepers…

Over the course of the last nine months, Gadora has been considerably privileged to create watercolor portraits for your loved-ones. Sadly, many requests come from mourning pet-owners. You want to remember your babies. Along with their pictures, you have offered their stories: funny anecdotes, silly situations and sad, sad endings. You are proud parents not wanting to forget. It is heart-warming to know there are so many good people.

For fifteen years I have loved a sweet and snuggly creature. Born Pepé La Pew, she’s been my dainty, happy fuzz-butt princess this whole entire time. Yesterday, my beloved Peepers, as she later answered to, said goodbye to this world. She was a beautiful, and sweet sweet kitty.

While I’ve been trying to come up with my name-for-the-day: The PEEPinator? PEEP-in Tom? SerenPEEPity? You got one for me? Hopping on my bout-fit (a lil wink to Killer Crouton here!), Gadora has procured a pair of bunny ears, and may even don a cotton-tail. Yes, I’m getting ready, folks. And I WILL do the bunny hop. In skates.

Gadora and The Pooh
