Reynaldo D. Reyes 2/29/2012 8:29:02 PM

It made me look sideways too Mary. Love the colors here, so elegant with the colors and details. I can understand the quizzical look with the Leap year as it is difficult to explain the extra part of the day we have to account for during the last three years. Great capture! #10014745

Ann Coates 2/29/2012 8:47:58 PM

I can see why this is a favourite, it is absolutely adorable. #10014767

Laura E. Swan 3/1/2012 2:09:52 AM

HeeHee...Gotta love it, Mare! :))) This is so darn precious! When Pookey was young he used to do this same thing! Except h';d keep going and roll over! It was part of his cute little begging "act" for food an treats. He GOT them too. He was clever! lol...

Happy Leap Day To You, Too! :)))

Mary K. Robison 3/1/2012 3:26:58 AM

Thanks very much for taking the time to comment, Pom and Heather.
Pom, if Pookey did this whenever he was hungry, I can believe he ALWAYS got something nice to munch on from you. Irresistible maneuver! #10015080

Laura E. Swan 3/1/2012 3:35:15 AM

Oh yah!!! He was a rascal! :))) So darned cute, too. I miss him so much Mare. xo

Thanks for the big smiles before bed time for me. Night night! (Or is that morning morning?)

-Laura :D #10015099

Mary K. Robison 3/1/2012 3:54:51 AM

Pom/Laura, I hope that soon you'll think of Pookey with more smiles than sorrow...if photos like this help, I'm glad.
Get plenty of beauty sleep! :-D
