I will try, but it is hard to make my heavy jowels smile. Maybe if I turn my large and gravity burdened head upside down.


Madi and Mom said...

Hi Dory now this is one fine contest!!!! Kudos to your assistant. We look forward to following it this month. If I can get the Diva in a good mood, maybe I'll be able to get a smile out of her...if so I'll join the fun. Really and truly kitties don't smile as freely as puppies.
