Kootchi sleeps with me every night all cuddled up under the covers. Some nights she even puts her head on my pillow. Kootchi follows me wherever I go. When I take a nap, she takes a nap. When I go to the bathroom, she barges her way in the door. When I'm on the computer, she lays right by my chair. I've taken her to the park a few times with the kids I'm nannying. They absolutely love her. I frequently hold her like a tiny baby.
My family and I have come up with many names for her: Kootchster, Koocha La Smoochala, Kootcharoony, and my personal creations---Princess and my little pot-belly pig! I'm trying really hard to get her to answer to Princess. We're still working on that, although every time I call her Koocha La Smoochala she kisses me on cue. I don't know how I'm going to leave her when I move to Chicago. I keep threatening I'm going to take her with me, but I can't. Guess we'll just have to Skype!
Isn't she adorable?! Now I understand why my parents haven't given her back to my brother. She's at their house to stay.
