Here's Lancelot!

It's true...the struggle to survive out here can be brutal, shocking, and emotional. However, when new life emerges, it's pretty darn cute.

Here, in a Hyena Blog exclusive, are the first photos of Archer's baby! I tried to sell them to the tabloids first, but they weren't interested. Their loss...

This tiny guy (or girl...we don't know yet) is named Sir Lancelot, and is the first in what will hopefully be a long line of Archer's "Knights of the Round Table" lineage.

After days of waiting, I finally saw Lancelot yesterday, and I can already tell he's going to be a wild child! He had no interest at all in nursing, and he certainly didn't want to be groomed. Instead, he chewed on Archer's ear, used her body as a playground, and head-butted her when he felt he was being ignored. With a gentle swipe of her paw, Archer reeled him in and he reluctantly settled down next to her.

Lancelot seems like a brave little one with a penchant for adventure...this mama's going to have her hands full!

Sir Lancelot has some growing to do before he is ready for jousting. But what a heart-throb!

So exciting! Good sleuthing Kate:) Can't wait to see how he's doing next year.
