Moo moo here, moo moo there...

How now, brown cow?

I made this little cow for Charlie today. He loves cows. Elephants and cows are his two favorite animals. I’m not sure why, but any time he sees a cow, a picture of a cow, a horse, or a giraffe (sometimes zebras) he’ll gleefully exclaim “MOO!” at the top of his little lungs. At first he was more interested in the drawing I made to work off of, but as soon as I put on the eyes he snatched it up and examined it, all the while ‘moo’-ing in fascination. (It was a little tough to get it back from him to attach the ears.)

MOO enjoys some sweet clover.

It was sweet, it was simple, and the cow is cute. My work here is done.

    The cow is adorable. The purple flowers are beautiful too. Are they in your yard? Or – did your cow get to go on a field trip for the photo shoot? I can just see it now moseying around Japan – suddenly – aha! the perfect shot. Broken Japanese ” no mam – I don’t want to pick your flowers, just borrow them! Not a real cow, just a little one” But then – she spies the beautiful boys, while she is distracted you quickly set up and shoot the perfect photo. Aha – yes – that must be it. :)
