This has been one freight train of a week... I did do my best to keep passengers limited to puppies, rainbows, and an abundance of awesome - and great joy of joys, this magnificent beast joined the party. Apparently "caribou" is just a North American term for "reindeer" (I'm desperate for a little taxonomic history on this), but to me, he's decidedly not a Rudolf, so I'm sticking with Boo. And I'm in love. I want to stare at him all day long, interrupted only by stroking his super-soft nose. After years of collecting skulls, bones, feathers, shells, and other assorted natural objects, this shoulder mount is my first purchase of the taxidermied variety... no surprise, I'm hooked. Now, everybody putcha glasses up - cheers to the freakin weekend!
