hey, hey good looking......

make yourself comfortable.....

here comes a huge Cricket update :)

i will not waffle on as i know all you want is pictures of his royal cuteness... so lets begin....


**************

he loves and adores his auntie mabel and great auntie bean x



and they love him....



he has the best time playing with his daddy and mabel.....



and they are both so sweet and gentle with him whilst still managing to teach him all the tricks!



after a rough and tumble he spends time cuddled up with whoever has a little spare room in their bed....
he has become quite a bed hopper.....
he is not fussy ;)


he is also quite a fan of crochet...
good boy!





the first sign of sunshine and he is at the back door....

nothing better than being a whippet puppers running through the long grass....




watching whilst i garden...
no doubt planning his attack on the chives or onions (both are slightly shorter than they once were...)


but who could be cross with a puppers as cute as him?



you can see the whippetness starting to show....
the long legs and long pointy nose.....
i love this age


and finally, for today, a few shots of Cricket in the evening sun....

he melts my heart....


he is not camera shy!



and sometimes, just occasionally, poor auntie mabel finds puppy sitting a little too much :)



more soon

Thanks for knowing that a picture is worth a thousand words. What lovely creatures these dear whippets are! They seem so sweet and gentle with one another. I'd love an invite to the sea. How do I sign up? Thanks for sharing.

please may i be invited?

Jan said...

Oh please, let me be one of those special people who get to come and visit the sea house blog.

I'm so enjoyed visiting with you here as well, but my husband is afraid to let me look at Cricket because he says 4 dogs are enough here, especially when two are English Mastiffs!

All the best,
Jan and friends

patrice said...

weebug said...

awwwww, he just melts my heart! i would love to be included on your sea house invites! that is, if you would like me to visit occassionally!

Pipany said...

Hi Tracy. Invite please (and now the paranoia begins! What if I don't receive one?!!!). Cricket is just gorgeous, but then all your dogs are. No pics of Tallulah? Hope she's ok too x

Henry the Leaphound said...

Oooh I LOVE him! He's just soooh gorgeuos, I even got Other Half to take a look because he is so cute. I think the way he snuggles in with anyone is so funny, oh and the chives, thing, now our pup Badger keeps biting the heads off of ours, and laying in the middle of a soft sage bush, very odd.

April said...

He is so gorgeous, glad to see him growing well

Oh my Cricket is just an amazing looking pup. So cute but with a little hint of cheeky in those eyes lol
LOL a bit like our Daisy.
How he has grown in the last few weeks. From tiny little pup to handsome little lad. He's going to break a few hearts hehe!
Turning the computer on and seeing those photos has brighten up our grey old day here. Thanks honey.
I popped a small email off to you last night, wishing you well and asking for an invite to Sea House. Please can i come and join in, I'll wear my best dress for such a posh occasion lol
Many hugs, have lovely weekend.
Speak soon lovely lady.

He is sooo gorgeous. I'm so glad for you that you can have this wonderful experience of seeing him grow up, and so glad also that you share it all with us. Thanks.

Pat said...

Little ones kind of break into your heart and take you hostage. I have two gangly kittens that I am the victim of, so I know the feeling!

Alexandra said...

Hi there! I am really new to this blogging malarky but really enjoy reading your blogs. I would really love to be able to continue to read about your progress with your house, but understand if you do not wish to invite me! I live in Scotland and you are living my dream! Only my fave place is on the West coast!!

Cathy said...

Gosh, he is growing! My husband kept asking me when is his nose going to start growing and his legs. Now I can show him! I keep your boy as my backdrop. All six of the kids have enjoyed watching him grow. No puupies here any time soon so we have to enjoy vicariously thru you. Plus our four would be sooo jealous!
My garden seems to be sufferinf from cairn terrieritis. They are only peeing on things I bring in for cooking! Chives, Mint and Dill are not happy right now.
I would like an invite! Please! I'm not a crazed person and with six kids in this house I'm not getting overseas any time soon :( so I won't happen by in a vehicle!

Elizabeth said...

Please invite me! I love reading your Cricket updates and everything else. Thanks :)

Padamae said...

Wow... he is getting so big!
I'd love an invite to your blog.... I love following your craftiness and stalking your fabulous dogs. My husband won't let me have whippets at the moment so I am making do with yours for the moment.

Sandy Shirley said...

I would love an invite to continue viewing your Sea House blog. I live in Alabama in the U.S. and under no circumstances will I be lurking around your home peeking in. Just through the blogophere with your permission.

Katie twinkles said...

I tried so hard to get Cricket in my Rucksack, I had a littel space in one of the pockets, but I couldn't get his whippety-long- stockings in so I was forced to go home alone :-((

acrossthepond said...

What a BEAUTIFUL post and a beautiful puppers. I can honestly see why he melts your heart. He is soooo sweet.

I really look forward to the Sunday portraits and you regular updates. I do not go over to Sea House as often but would be very sad if I did not see it's progress. Please send me an invite. I would be very honoured.

Janice said...

I would love to continue 'lurking' from Canada. I love following the progress of your home.

Lyn said...

sue15cat said...

I would love an invite to read your blog, I'm many, many miles away and wouldn't dream of driving slowly past your house to peek inside (unless you leave the light on and the curtains open of course!! Lol.

I would hate to miss out on your lovely puppy growing into the handsome dog he is promising to be.

The Odd Bird said...

I WANT this puppy.... Oh, he is sooooo cute. Love him, love him, and all the other puppers too. I follow Sea House so if I could have an invite I would so appreciate it. I live in the US so I won't be driving by taking pictures... lol..

Flourish and Blossom said...

Bobo Bun said...

They're all so gorgeous Tracey. fantastic shots of them all. Hope I can still read all your adventures, the Buns love when I show them how Cricket is growing and what he's up to.

Tracy
I know JUST how you feel about the house. We get all sorts stopping and gawping - and when they see us, it actually seems to make them gawp more rather than move on! Have they no shame?! So I do understand - I think Frank is with your chap on the inside of the house, and it has begun to bother me, too. But if you are happy with the faithful few being in on it, I would love to continue to look in at Sea House as well. Love that little Cricket! Happy dog....
much love

periwinkle said...

he really is the most adorable little thing

Red Telly said...

I've followed with great interest both your blogs and would love to keep up with your progress at Sea House. You have such an interesting life there and I love seeing all the cute pics of your animals, especially Cricket! I would love to live near the water, but for now I'm landlocked here in Wisconsin in the USA. What a wonderful view from your house!

dinsdaledogs said...

Sad you feel it necessary to take it private,hope you are not being trolled. I am a fairly new visitor but have enjoyed Cricket & Crew and would love an invite.

Dawniella said...

Please could I have an invite too?
I'm a regular visitor to cupcakes and seahouses. I'm a great fan of the pups and reading about your lifestyle.
