Aby-a-Day – July 6: “The balloons only have one life and the only way of finding out whether they work is to attempt to fly around the world” (Friday Flashback)

I’ve been thinking about Gun-Hee a lot lately, which isn’t that surprising considering the anniversary of his death just passed.


These photos were taken just before his first birthday. I had gotten some balloons at a work function and brought them home to see what he’d think of them.


The didn’t think much of the balloons themselves…but he was fascinated with the curly ribbons that the balloons were tethered by.








Compared to Jacoby, Gun-Hee was much more of a jumper. Gun-Hee could jump almost as high as the ceiling with a good leap. It was amazing to watch. Compared to his brother, Jake’s kind of a klutz.

Abys in Need – Cricket in Lousiana needs a home

This comes from the Aby Rescue list I’m on.


Cricket is a eight year old Aby. Very sweet, gentle and loving. Needs lots of attention and indoor environment. She lost sight in right eye after receiving a vaccination at age 6 months.
Would appreciate any help you could offer.

She looks like she still has her eye (unlike Angel), but she can’t see with it.
If you know anyone who can give Cricket a home, contact Mary by email or call 985-796-8161.
