Family Portraits--Our Ancestors

Today's post has been inspired by my loose interpretation of Bijou's Wordless Wednesdays. As you may know by now, my family consists of adopted animals; a bunch of mismatched members, picked off the streets, with little known history. We call ourselves The Misfits. Well, it's time for us to write our own history. Let's hit it, Frankie, Linguini, Bob, Jet, and Max!

We think this is a distant aunt of Frankie's. Her name was Tiny Links.
She's a chiweenie of course

This is Max's cousin, from his mother's side of the family, and his name is Mini.
The maine coon cat has not evolved at all  

Linguini's Great Aunt Ziti. 
The resemblance is astonishing. They match each other spot for spot!

Bob's relative and we'll leave it at that. 

While conducting the search for our relatives, I stumbled upon this picture. Apparently there's a long tradition of ITs terrorizing young chiweenie puppies. 

This, I can't explain.

While we're still working on verifying the authenticity of this photo, it has to be my relative. Check out the uniqueness of the leap, the grace, the determination. Apparently us Twinkersons can fly over water too. I am proud to be a Twinkerson and a tea cup chihuahua. 

I hope you enjoyed this trip down our past. If you need me to, I'll be happy to research your relatives too. I'm getting good at this.

You have a very wide and varied family tree!

Just don't stay in the water too long!

Hi Twink,

We loved seeing your relatives. They look like a very nice bunch of misfits!

Twinkie you have quite an interesting mix in your family and all very beautiful/handsome in their own way. Sounds kind of like our family.

Hey Twinkie, If I became a Twinkerson... do you think I might be able to fly over SNOW...which is really just frozen (shiver) rain (shiver).???? Well, at least we could be related that way. Right???
That one (unexplainable) pic. was kind of freaky. I'm not at all sure that guy is a member of your family. Maybe just a wannabe, like me. I'm just sayin'.
So now that you got to meet my wimmen at the pawty yesterday, what do you think? They are real babes, right? I'm just sayin'.
My tummy was still full of those delicious snacks until THIS MORNING. Fun time. Hope we get invited again next year.

You are so much fun. I love your trip down memory lane but I'd be scared to see my pack's history through your eyes!!!! :)

Great photos. Is that what they call 'sepia' effect? It looks really cool.

Pat Wahler said...

I love old photos, especially those with the lovely, ummm, tintype quality.

Everyone has such an incredibly strong family resemblence with their ancestors!

Life With Dogs said...

Great idea for a post! Makes me want to dig through old pics. As long as I can skip the cat family...

Fascinating journey through the archives. Gosh, Twinkie, does that mean there are more nutty doggies like you out there somewhere in blog land?


Taffy said...

Wonderful post, Twink! Hmmmm.... I don't know too much about my ancestors and you ARE very good at it.... and you DID offer.... I wonder if you and I are related having matching attitudes and all.
