my name is Tracy and i have an addiction to Whippets.....
actually if the truth be told the arrival of the boys is down to Stephen....
this chap is Pax - litter brother of our own dear sweet Miss Mabel Moo - he was a very lucky boy and found his new forever home with a kind couple and their two chihuahuas - shortly after his arrival he was joined by another pup - Zulu x
they have lived happily with their new owners and would still be with them now, but sometimes life is so unkind to wonderful people....
these two chaps had to find a new forever home :(
i initially said "no" as on a normal day it is i who sorts out the animals both inside and out - my mornings work cannot begin until all my animals are walked, fed and smiling happily!
i knew that bringing two pups in (both under a year old) would mean more work and less time for me and my little business.
Stephen and i talked and talked and gradually he weakened me by promising to be a little more aware of what is needed in the mornings, rather than him stepping out of bed and going on his merry way without a thought for me and the crew!!
the boys are really here because of him.....
and i am so pleased that they are xx
the girls have welcomed them in to our home as i knew they would - all our dogs are pretty laid back and friendly - they seem to take each new arrival in their stride....
Ghillie thinks that it is great to have more males around and is doing his best to welcome them in without stepping on them :)
Zulu has fallen in love with Mabel big time - needless to say a trip to the vets will be in order in the future - NO PUPS HERE!!!!
and Pax is the spitting image of his sister - same character, same need for lots of cuddles - just so much bigger!
so that is the tale of the new chaps - we are not sure if we will change their names or not - they are perhaps not names that we would have chosen so we will see.
i do keep thinking that Pax could be an "Alfie" and that Zulu might be a "Wilf"....... :)
but as i say - it is early days and they seem to be settling in but who knows?
we hope that they are here to stay x
this will be my last animal inspired post for awhile - i am aware that my blog seems to feature nothing else - so from the next post there will be other lovely things x
back soon and thank you all for your lovely words about the boys - their first owners and the wonderful breeders of Pax and Mabel read this blog and it will be lovely for them to see all your messages x
