Been Keeping Momma Busy


 One year ago today was Betty's gotcha day.  Momma took a red-eye from Los Angeles all they way to Columbus, Ohio to pick her up. Then she jumped right back on the plane with Betty and they both flew home.  

Beth and Barry were Betty's FBRN foster family. They met momma in the baggage claim at the airport.  She was so loved by everyone.

So, the Frenchie powers must know momma is missing Betty because they have been keeping her busy!!

Meet Noni, our newest foster. 

Ain't she cute as a button? She's totally deaf but has already learned lot's of hand signals from momma so she's getting around just fine. She also uses Gunther and Mac as her ears so she follows their lead a lot. 

She loves everyone, specially daddy.

Compared to the other Smushies, particularly Mac and Marge, Noni is a pipsqueak. She only weighs 18lbs. She also makes the best Wookie noises when she wants attention from momma.
It's gonna be a very Smushie Christmas around here!!

Love, the Smushies

Noni is really cute. She must be very smart to have learned so much so quickly.

Every time we visit momma says something about lumps in her throat and tears. We can't imagine how much you miss Betty. Thank goodness for Gunther and Stella and now beautiful Noni. Love him!!

Noni you are such a doll, can't wait to meet you. So glad you are fitting in so well with all the other smushies. Just listen to Gunther and Stella, they won't steer you wrong.

Little Noni is adorable! We are so happy you will have a smushi-filled Christmas. It is pretty amazing how she has learned hand signals. My two pretend they are deaf half of the time...selective pugger hearing.

Pink Thumb said...

How wonderful! Welcome Noni! Your foster mommy is the best so you're a lucky frog.

What a charming little gal. I hope you are all getting along OK. I do miss Betty and think of her often, but she is running free and waiting for us over the bridge.

Now you have a new little Frenchie to play with.

The circle of life.

Slobbers,
