cricket.......

lots of sleeping with his mama.......





content after another good feed.....



sneeking a quick cuddle when mama is out on a loo break........




and then being so very carefully placed back in the nest so as not to worry the returning mama.......




yesterday he realised that he could climb.....
just a little........




by this afternoon he had mastered the art and made it to the top :)




where he took his very first rooftop nap...........





very, very pleased with himself.......



however....
this is his most favourite sleeping spot....
very close to his mama...
and very close to his food.......





we and his cuteness thank you for your lovely messages......

OMG he's so very very adorable, I'm so in love and so are the cupcakes. Lots of awww's everytime i show them the photo's. Can't wait to show them these ones tomorrow. they're all safely tucked up in their beds now, while I'm here trying to paint.
I'm so glad you can raise above other people mindless comments honey. I just don't understand why they do it! Yours is a fabulous life and you give nothing but the best to every last one of your animals, if only they'd take the time to sit and read things properly before judging you.
We support you sweet friend and take our hats off to all you and Stephen have and will achieve.
Many hugs,
Much love,

Hi Tracy,

I have just got up in the middle of the night as I need your advice, if you wouldn't mind, my friend has just phoned me desperately needing me to look after her dog for maybe a week while she visits her brother who is gravely ill. I am going to email you now for some tips. i hope it's okay.
I also got the bonus of being first on your latest posting. He is big already. I'm just loving the colour x

Cricket is adorable!. I don't know how you will ever get anything done with him there to watch, cuddle, and love. I know I would spend all my time with the sweetie. I never had a puppy - all my dogs were strays that arrived at my door half grown. Keep the pictures coming, so we can watch as he grows and discovers the world.
