Freddie Gets A Hair Cut Again

Freddie loves going to shows, he loves attention.

Freddie's coat is beautiful but it's time to take a break.


Mom, what are you doing?


Hair cut time again?  I hate that.


I am not happy.


Mom, you are not a good hair stylist, I am a mess.


My fans are going to be heart broken to see me like this, Mom, you better clean me up.


Freddie, look at your beautiful wool.   Your fans will be happy to get a piece of you when the wool is made into a scarf.


OK, Ok, not too bad, it feels good to be able to run around without tripping on myself.

Mom, don't leave me.


Where are you, Mom?


Come to me, Mom.


I am waiting...


I am lonely...

News-O-Matic Publishes "Betty's Bunny Tips"

According to the description on the News-O-Matic website:
"News-O-Matic is the daily newspaper for kids on iOs and Android, an exciting and engaging nonfiction experience, and a fantastic modern educational tool. It gives young readers a window into the world — and a reason to love reading news for kids."
Betty received a message from the Guinness World Records office that News-O-Matics requested an e-mail/photo interview.  Betty says,  "I answered the questions and provided the photos as requested.    This morning Guinness office sent me the photos of Betty's Bunny Tips that was published prior to Easter Sunday.    The graphics are very cute, especially the kids' drawings.   I suspect there were more photos published as some of the drawings resemble the photos that I provided but not included in the Betty's Bunny Tips.   Have fun with the kid's version of describing English Angora".
