one





our cricket is one today...

our surprise whippet .....

our sweet boy.....




there has been carrot cake....




presents....



guarding of presents....
whilst showing how the wind can turn your whippity ears inside out in a second....



leaping with presents.....



running with presents....



chasing other whippets that have stolen presents....



and a little time for posing.....

***

dearest cricket...
you arrived and took us completely by surprise...
and now you are one...
a whole year, 365 days of wonderful you...
we are so very glad you are here....

you are our very best boy

Aaah! He's lovely...your little Cricket. What a cool name.

Wish you could see this. 'Tis so sweet...how they wait their turn, knowing they will be fed......My daughter is presently dishing out smoked salmon to our 12 mogs and 1 dog:o) Such a kind heart has she:o)...much like you.

I'm sorry about your friend...I lost one, too..albeit by his own hand. This was a long time ago though. He was young. But I know how the emptiness feels. It does get 'less raw'...best way I can explain. 'Tis hard when you just can't pick up the phone and natter, I know. I miss that.

Anyway, here's to happier,less tough times. xxx

it can't possibly be..a whole year since he magically appeared?

He is adorable.

The Hound refers to him as the young upstart. The S-club juniors to his S-club 7. The Sebastian Vettel to his Lewis Hamilton. The Cheryl Cole to his Danii Minogue.

Happy Easter
