How Strong Are You?

Today, we have a test for you. It is really simple. How strong are you? Ready . . .

Could you resist?

Could you resist this face in your lap?

Oh, sure, you thought that was the test. We will admit that Frankie can do the doe eyes better than just about anyone, but that is not the test. That is merely the warm-up. Ready for the real test?


Go ahead. Resist now.

    Their wish is granted! I have 2 Siberians all they have to do is look at me & give me that husky smile.

    Mom sez: Awww, actually, you had me at “Frankie”, being as he’s my “favoritist” since Rusty! One look from those beautiful brown eyes of Frankie’s, and I’m lost!

      I have some trouble visualizing the Queen making doe eyes, not to mention lolling happily on a lap. 🙂

    No. I’m not strong. Very weak, yes. That’s why we have our pack. Started with one, then two, another and another, four from a divorce and so on….

    When it comes to animals, I admit proudly that I can not resist. If I could I would have an animal plantation. Big hugs and kisses to the herd.
