8 months later

July 14 has come and gone and now I can say I'm one! I was 4 months old before I was adopted, though. Looking back on these last 8 months make me misty-eyed at times.Here is a picture of me and my grandma, but can you see what I'm holding? It's Mr. Beetle, one of my first toys, and I loved him tenderly and true.
He was often with me when I napped. Mr. Beetle and I were close. I even had a blue collar to match his blue skin. As time passed, I shared Mr. Beetle with Fig and Tad ~~ we tugged and pulled and pranced and danced with him.
Eight months of loving took its toll on Mr. Beetle, but I still hold the remnant of him close to my heart.
On a lighter note, I'd like to thank Girl Girl Hampster for this award!

I am passing it on to Eduardo, Jack and Patrick,Levi and Cooper, Mack, and Stanislaw. Here are the rules:
