We got mail yesterday! It was our prize we won in Boy n Baby's Paw Contest.
Butchy: Here let's see what's inside of this envelope...
I can hardly fit my snout down in there.....
Ooooh, look at the pretty card.....
Look what I pulled out of the envelope......a nice new plush squeaky toy!!!! and there is a pretty pink book marker with a butterfly on it for Mama!
Now how do I get this darn plastic bag off of the toy???
Snickers: Get out of the way Butchy, I'll show you how to get the wrapper off...
See, nothin' to it....
Oh boy, squeaky time.....
Here is a video of me Snickers playing with our new toy:
Here is me Butchy, I really know how to play with a toy. Keep watching, I get really goofy in the middle of the video & start jumping around really strange:
Thank you so much Boy n Baby for having the fun contest for everyone! We love our prizes!!!
Ok, now for some more koi pictures. Remember some of these pictures aren't very clear. Some of the colors are really hard to get a good photo.
This is Boo Casanova: Solid white! His Mama fish is Peaches, one of Mama's biggest & oldest female fish. See how he is stuffing his mouth with food? hehehehe!
This is the lovely Chiyo: Solid Metallic Golden Yellow.
This is Opie & Gomer: Opie is the top fish, Gomer the bottom fish. Opie is Metallic Golden Silver with Black edges on the scales. Gomer is Metallic Copper with Black edges on the scales. Both Opie & Gomer's Mama fish is Silver. These colors of fish are gorgeous outside in the pond, especially when the sun is shining. A photo just doesn't show their beauty.
This is Jasper: Metallic Black with Silver Metallic edges to some scales in a pattern on his back. This is another fish that is really neat out in the pond.
This is Sherman: White with Orange on Head & Cheeks & on his left side, there is a big red spot! Can you see it??
This is Marvin, the bottom fish in the picture: He is a very unique color. It is becoming popular over here in the US. His colors are still changing too. Right now he is light charcoal with bronze/orange pattern all over his body. He could even end up being white with orange spots. It will probably be another year before we know his final colors. He is swimming with Momo on top & Peanut right above him.
This is Kuki: Kuki is Metallic Yellow with Silver Edges to the scales. His Mama fish is also Silver.
The bottom fish in this picture is Kobe: He is the same coloring as Marvin, except he has a different pattern to the copper/orange. He could change quite a bit in the next year also.
Tomorrow we'll still have a few more fish pictures to post, but we're getting down to the ones that we don't have pictures of yet. TinTin & Teka seem to be the most shy. Luckie, Bella, Wally & Pippa just aren't posing good for Mama, hehehehe. Maybe she'll have to give them some mandarin oranges tomorrow, then maybe they will show up for pictures!
