Today is Pinky’s Birthday…oh, and some other stuff happened too

What week we had! We could almost (almost) ignore the rantings of HWMNBN while we basked in the good feeling glow of the Democratic National Convention. And if that was not enough…

We…have…a…new…baby PANDA!!!!!

Pinky: ahem

Yes, Pinky, we KNOW today is your birthday.

While we wait until I have a chance to create the introductory ‘toon to welcome our new arrival, we do have one or two (ahem!) more ‘toons to celebrate the birthdays of Pinky and Bubba. Mei Xiang, panda mom extraordinaire, had her fourth surviving cub* on Friday, August 21st at 6:35 PM.  Do you think she planned so that these 3 siblings would have their birthdays on three consecutive days?

Happy Birthday Pinky and Bubba! Happy Birth day XT4!!!!

The Spirit of Halloweens yet to come is not a spirit to be messed with, right?

What the well dressed panda cub is wearing this season!

How IS this different from Pinky’s normal bossiness?

Bubba is having so much fun with his new friends!

Hey! Where did Bubba and Mr. Bun go?

Pinky is just so sensitive….

Oh, Mr. Bun! Where have you been?

Did Unka Justin write this letter?

What goes around, comes around…

Pinky, do you really think that Bubba will fall for this?

Mommee Mei puts her foot down.

Oh those red pandas! They are such characters!

The following group of ‘toons were written more than one and a half years ago. They don’t seem quite so far fetched NOW, do they?

Who would ever imagine Pinky would do something to offend someone? #ClapLouder

Mebbee Bubba and Ping Ping can help…

Mittens can’t really do that, can he?

Mittens did WHAT??????!!!!????

Dis. Will Not. STAND!!!!!

I don’t want to end on this somewhat depressing note…off to look for one more ‘toon about Pinky and Bubba!

Watch out, Bubba! Pinky is on the loose!

Panda On!

  • Mei Xiang had a cub that only survived a few hours in 2012, a still born twin to Pinky (Pinky: it was NOT my fault!) and a twin to Bubba who lived 4 days.

    A ray of sunshine in the darkness! A new cubbie! Aunties again! A welcome addition to the wonderful cubbies Tai Shan, Bao Bao, and Bei Bei! So happy and excited! The liddle one has powerful lungs! Mommee Mei is such a good Mom! I am so happy. Also, it seems that the aunties kept watch through the night for Mei and the new baby. That makes me tear up!
    I can imagine your new story lines are running through your brain! This really is a miracle cubbie! Stay safe!

      I am definitely thinking about where this cubby fits into the story. Lucilla pointed out in her welcome to the world story on FB, that XT-4 was born on the same day as Hua Mei, who was the first surviving cubby born in the US, and Qi Ji (miracle) is the last of our cubbies born to the first US Panda Dynasty. I like to call it the golden age of pandas!
