We first posted a picture of Icy and Dusty in Oct. 1997. Lately I've been trying to learn how to make animated movies and practicing on the Growing Up Lammy blog. While Icy and I were out celebrating at Ugly Grace's bar, a friend, Flowering Kudzu, got up on the bar and danced and sang us a song.
Bootsy watches the cat from next door, which was born about the same time. These two are not directly related, but the daddy of the yellow one was one of the fathers of Turdy, Bootsy's turtle-shell brother. Mama Noname Cat had sex with both Midnight and Morris within minutes and one of the eggs was fertilized by two different sperm. Cats are peculiar like that, maybe. And maybe not. Midnight had a yellow sub-coat, so he might have been like a brother to Morris or something. There's a solid black cat that comes around often that is the same age (6 months) as Bootsy. Icy says, Who cares?
Icy and Bootsy get along very well, considering they are dog and cat. But they have something in common. Icy recently lost her daddy, Dusty, and Bootsy has lost two brothers, Turdy and Mr. Gray. So they console each other when they feel down with sorrow and grief.
