My opening farewell

No, I’m not going anywhere, so you can stop hyperventilating right this minute. But the real life inspiration for Princess Pinky, that American icon of the Smithsonian institute, out there in the OTHER Washington, Bao Bao, daughter of Mei Xiang and Tian Tian, has to leave for China next week. So, devastated as we are, we must say farewell to that adorable ball of fluff that we love so well. All this month, Fabulous Furry Friday celebrates her royal self. So here’s today’s plethora of Pinkys!!!!

Pinky is a STAR!!!!!

Princess Pinky helps with new years resolutions

You say you want a resolution, well, you know, it is hard to change a bear….

Bao Bao is unhappy

Could Mama Mei Xiang really be contemplating letting Pinky loose on the pandy kindy?

Sochi Winter Olympics, Pandas

I keep hearing the song “bears on the Run” going through my head…the ski run, that is!

Never say “No” to a Pinky!

Those girls are a force to be reckoned with.

Tune in again on Sunday for the rest of the Book 7 cover reveal!

Panda On!

      We will all miss her, but you won’t have to miss her here, since the cartoon Pinky ain’t going anywhere.

    Is she going away with no words of farewell?
    Will there be not a trace left behind?
    We could have loved her better; didn’t mean to be unkind.
    You know that was the last thing on our mind.

    My inner panda wants to use the magical wand to POOF something. hmmm…..POOF!!! Pinky doesn’t go to China until NEXT year. POOF! ( I know, I know, we have no choice. BooBoo needs to graduate. I just hate not being able to make it to NZ to see Bao Bao one more time. )

      Pinky is at her most fun when she is out of control. She continues to be one of my favorite characters. So much fun for me to look back on her exploits!
