Capyboppy by Bill Peet and thinking that a capybara would be an awesome pet. We decide it doesn't look as soft and huggable as Linus, but it's still a pretty cute giant rodent.
He was a licker. The kids said his tongue was softer than a kittens. He was pretty sweet.
If I can't get a job as a baby holder, I might apply for a joey holding job.
