Mom introduced Kali and I to a furry, bucked toothed animal with a fat flat tail. She told us she was here to be friends with us and to play when we got tired of playing with each other. Ya, OK mom…this should be good. Where’d you meet this funny lookin’ gal, mom? Mom said she picked her and her brother up from the slough, not far from us.
This beaver had gone all over the southern states with mom and dad. Her brother wanted to stay in the southern states so went to the Thompson home to live with Bacon, Houdini, Mouse Girl and Hemi. The evening the Thompson’s and Neilson’s got together was a fine night as they had a ball. Billy, the bro, was drinking and chomping on the table…throwing bark over to his sister for a great meal of Teak bark, a rare delicacy. Billy went wild! His sister thought he shouldn’t really drink cause he tends to get into trouble. Later that evening came the good byes and many a tear was shed as they hugged and went their separate ways. Promising to stay in touch. Sister beaver headed back up to Canada with her new mom and dad.
When she got to her new home….Kali greeted the furry creature….Kali knocked her sideway and took a long sniff…”hey this is a Canadian beaver…I’d know that outdoor smell anywhere.”
Kali welcomed the new addition to the family with open paws and nose bumps.
The final test….what about me I don’t just welcome anyone into the family. I approached the beaver and Kali was right she smelled so good. A Canadian if I ever saw one. The beaver says she has lots of stories of life in the slough too! Wow I love stories mom. Let me get up close and personal with this gal.
“Is she your beaver, mom” asked Shoko. No, not really Shoko she belongs to this family though. What’s her name mom or do we just call her B for beaver.” I don’t know what her name will be. “How about we ask our friends to give her a name. they probably have lots of ideas. Sounds great. She is rather feminine and keeps talking about getting false eyelashes…seriously? Sounds like she wants to be a fashion plate.
