    Default Lawdy this lil sucker was cute

    One of the less common 'chids I see at shows, this was at the small show I attended over Mem. Day Weekend. Very cute mini, IMO, though this shot doesn't do it justice.



    Guess I need a tripod ... just couldn't hold quite still enough for a sharp shot. So here is also a link to a much better pic

    Way too cute.

    Hey, I could try taking a better shot of it for you. No, really, I wouldn't mind at all!

    They are super cute which is why I couldn't resist getting one a few weeks ago. It's teeny but seems to be doing well for now.

    I thought about this guy at one point, but it's so small, and still quite pricey. I just wasn't sufficiently in luv...
