I have had Melvin for just over four years and have been asked several hundred times about what’s behind the sad face. I always say, ‘that’s just his face’. When I first got him, I fell in love with his sad expression. I had met him, I knew how exuberant and outgoing he was, so I didn’t feel too terrible about enjoying his weepy expression. In fact, his mopey face, is part of the joy of my every day.
