bff’s. (or lovers.)

since we spent new years day in new york city, kingsley got to have a playdate
with his new bff, dear natalie’s precious stellie (whose haircut i adore).
they hit it off nicely…
until kingsley got on stella’s nerves and took over her space,
her toys and even water bowl like a king.
(he really likes living up to his name.)

here is stellie thinking, “what’s wrong with you–spaz?”

and here is kingsley really getting on stellie’s nerves.
he was just so excited to have a female friend!

dear stellie ( and nat), thanks for playing!
we love you both.
  1. They are destined to become bbf :) They are both sooo cute!!
