The Bah-Bah-Lamb Incident

This is Nova old guy-guy shortly after his beloved Nikki went across the Rainbow Bridge.

Nikki was a year older than Nova, and she was his seeing eye husky, kept beside him at all times, made sure he was ok. I hear that he looked at her like his mother.

In the lower left hand corner, you can see Bah-Bah Lamb. Bah-Bah lamb was Nova's toy and he didn't share it with anyone, not even Nikki. One day when Nikki's time was near, Nova went upstairs and got Bah-Bah, carried him downstairs and plopped him down right next to Nikki. The humans cried their eyes out.

After Nikki passed, Nova carried Bah-Bah with him wherever he went, and slept with Bah-Bah at night. They were inseperable.

Then I came along. Nova did NOT let me anywhere near Bah-Bah lamb, he got very angry if I even sniffed it, and he actually hid Bah-Bah where nobody could find it... and I tried finding him.

About a month after I arrived, I was playing chew on the human woman when Nova walked into the room, and in his mouth was Bah-Bah lamb! The human woman didn't know what to think of that, and I was confused too, since I had been told that the ONLY rule of the house was that I didn't touch Bah-Bah lamb.

After a moment, Nova walked over, and plopped Bah-Bah down right next to me! WOW! He accepted me, he wanted me to stay at the house, he thought I was OK!

So I ripped Bah-Bah lamb to shreds in about 10 seconds.

For some reason Nova wouldn't talk to me for a long time after that. I use to take the de-stuffed head into the yard to throw around... great fun.

(well, he GAVE it to me)

I used to have a green bone toy. But when Whiskey Girl first came she was very very scared, so I gived it to her. When she gets nervous she carries it around now. I want it back.
