    When I got home from work today my mom said, "if there was ever any doubt about Nelson being a boy..."
    and went on to tell me about how she noticed him today "standing tall" in his food dish... "and it was SO GROSS and so big!!" :rolleyes:

    NO, I don't have pictures of that! But I do have some pictures from a few months ago.

    Nelson is THREE years old now!

    i love your pics and I want to let you know, that you and Nelson have really inspired me! I have looked back through all your Nelson pics. I hope I can give that same level of care to my Russians! Nelson looks great!

    I'm glad to hear that "Nelson" is really a "Nelson." :D I'm still trying to figure out Ruby and Little Eddie. It's hard sometimes. I love Nelson! :)

    I just want to point out, that when EVERYONE else said that Nelson was a girl, I totally stuck by my boy Nelson and never doubted for a MINUTE that he was all man!!!! ;)
