A Whole Handful Of Handsome

Hu-Dad muttered something about a whole handful of handsome running around Chez Herd which led to lots of posing and preening.

Pick me. Pick me.

Pick me. Pick me.

As beautiful as they are, the girls of The Herd never worry about beauty contests. Miss Kiska concentrates on her role of Chief of Security and Miss Cheoah has entirely too much fun playing in water buckets.

The boys, however, are constantly strutting about the yard. So when Hu-Dad said something about the boys being handsome, the poses were being struck.

Not a chance, Q. Pick me.

Not a chance, Q. Pick me.

Just one minor problem. Hu-Dad said the boys were being a handful.

I still win! handful and handsome

I still win!

    They are all extremely handsome and it would be hard to pick one – but if I had too, Landon with his oh-so-fluffy-tail would win by a tail.

    Oh Qannik! You get my vote! You’re gorgeous sweet fella ❤️

    LOL Landon is definitely the most striking of the Herd – his extra floofy tail, his coloring, those piercing blue eyes – just don’t tell him I said so.
