  1. Those two squaries seem jolly good at chomping up their toys Parsnip.

  2. Tako is a regional item that's promoted everywhere in Osaka? Interesting. Is there anything in the area's history or geography that would explain that?

  3. oh my. you are right honey pie. later IS later. yert!

    smiles, bee

  4. Of course they'd rather just kill it!

    Can I borrow a pic of the boys for an impending blog, by chance?

  5. I don't reckon much on Tako's chances:)

  6. They're obviously good models--very photogenic and willing to pose!

  7. Hello Gayle:
    Oh, the furry little red Tako seems too good to be destroyed, and looking at the devastation all around, your two dogs are wreaking enough havoc without the Tako. What fun that each area of Japan has its own symbol. Surely each time you wash your hands in the studio it must bring a smile to your face!
