The Official Shulse Family Portrait

"The family is one of
nature's masterpieces."
-George Santayana

(First Official Shulse Family Portrait)
l to r: Daddy Mike, Mugsy, Popeye, Mama Jill, and new Baby Junior
I've been busy yesterday and this morning putting the finishing touches on our first family portrait. This is Mike and myself, along with our three little 'love children.' I think little Babycakes has finally got a name. Mike and I have decided on 'Junior,' because he looks like a cross between our sainted pug, Otis, and our little Popeye. He's like the little kid brother who tags along after the big boys. He seems to have bonded with Popeye, and Popeye is already showing him the running and jumping up on my recliner before I sit in it...stealing rawhide 'chewies' and hiding them from the others...chewing on things that aren't meant to be chewed on...begging for treats...etc. He has won our hearts, and fits in well with our little 'blended' family.
