This is what has been finished thus far on the hippo...his middle and back end! The next parts are for his legs in front, and I have one of those about ready to add. He is really cute, but next time I make one, IF I make one, I will not do the color scheme like this. Will make it two-toned, or three-toned, I think.
While the heat was up so high along with the humidity, and because the Fourth was fast approaching, I brought in Tommy Socks and stashed him in the spare room. As you can see he thought he was in heaven....in a/c, on a bed, and in the house with food, water, and a box. He never made a peep for two days!
