Awww Monday: Appleblossom

Awww Monday is hosted by Sandee at Comedy Plus.  It's easy to do, just post a picture that makes everyone say "Awww!" because we could all use that on a Monday morning.

Our latest bottle baby came from Dr. Bea.  She's a fabulous vet, and i never turn her down because she does so much for us in caring for our pets.

This one was found alone behind a Target store, and the person was a client of Dr. Bea.  So now we have her.

She just opened her eyes.
