But Gingerbread Man moved to Belgium, met two gorgeous Belgian champs (Fiesta and D'vanya), and our great-sisters were born! We've shared some pix of them before (here and here), but we tasked Mom to scan some more! They're less than 6 months old in the pix we're sharing today! In this one, they're probably 10 weeks old, at most.
They were both bi-eyed, like all of us except Dave. They taught Mom and Dad a lot about Sibes and trained them very well for those of us to come. Jesse was very sweet and kind, like someone else we all know and love; Lucky was very much the smart, sassy, black and white alpha like someone else we could mention. In fact, here's Lucky, challenging our dad to a game of chess.
Excuse me, I believe that's CHECK MATE!
On Belgian Independence Day of 1983, they were invited to the home of some Belgian friends of Mom and Dad. At the tender age of about 3 months, they made a very important discovery. Seafood.
Crab leg? What is a 'crab leg'?
Yes, you may peel one for me. Je t'en prie, Sarah...
This was Lucky's reaction:
Enough with the cuddling and sweet-talk, Sarah! Where's the rest of the crab?!?Even though Halloween isn't celebrated in Belgium like it is in the States, that didn't stop Mom from trying to dress them up. Here they are as Little Red Riding Hood and the "Big Bad Wolf".
Not only do think Jesse was type-cast as the so-called Big Bad Wolf, since her coat was registered as "wolf grey" but... shouldn't she have her jaws wrapped around "Little Red" instead of the other way around? Ha roo roo roo!
Tune in next Sunday as we once again salute our great-sisters, Jesse and Lucky.
