Good morning all! Have any of you had your COVID shot? If you want to feel like twice baked crap for 2 or 3 days go ahead! Usually I'd be below convicts and and above homeless in the tier system but since I work with snot nosed brats and their lunatic parents I'm in the next tier. I digress. Someone asked for pictures to see if Pistachio - whose name I will be changing to Archie/Edith Bunker, Eddie/Edith Money or any other suggestion besides Speedy, Tortellini, Shelly.... I am a bit worried about the pink lines. Growth or infection?

The pink lines are growth, that good. I'm taking a guess that your Sucata is a Female.

😃 no worries. I wasn’t second guessing anyone I was just wondering 2 things; how you can tell illness vs growth lines so I can learn and how you can tell sexes apart so I can learn that too. I’m sure poor Tom and Yvonne are probably pretty tired of this. I’ve seen posts about it but not really how you can tell the difference so I don’t go to a vet freaking out about it. Thanks for your quick reply 😃
Morning

And buy the was those pictures are fantastic! I love his little face already!
He doesn’t look too shabby might I add.
I am looking forward to your life together!
Don’t worry, they probably ARE just growth markings anyway.... that’s because of all of the great care you gave him at that school.

I think it’s a “she”too. Is her tummy flat?
Flat tummy = girl
Front (under face) piece “wide”= girl
Tail swept to one side= girl
Eye lashes= girl 😉
Pink lips= girl

Dented in tummy= boy
Front ( under face) long and straight =boy
Tail (showing his ...junk=boy (as usual🙄)
Tattoos of battleship = boy
Beard = boy
Spits on floor = boy
And finally....
Lip stick = 🤔😧.... boy trying to “find himself”.. 😑😬🙂

Hahaha you’re killing me! Why are they always showing their junk? It’s rude, crude, lewd and socially unacceptable. Maybe I’m just old fashioned that way. So is anyone gonna help me with a name?

When you say “drives us all crazy”—
Do you mean in a “GOOD” kinda way?
Or in an annoying kinda “Shut the h*ll up” kinda way? 🤔🤔🤔
Well of course itʻs ALWAYS a good thing. When I want you to shut up Iʻll send you pictures of my neighbors dog. Constantly. Everyday. Test me if you like. 🤣 🤣🤣
