Sad, cute and wordy Wednesday.

UPDATE: Spice had a seizure last night and was rushed to the vet. She's resting with her missed and beloved family now. We hope her brother will enjoy the rest of his time with the waggle and not miss her too much. We are so very sad. Rest in peace, sweetie!

We're still very sad around here thinking about Patience and Bill and Spice and the Warburton crew. We have known them for years through the great whippet forum WhippetWorld. Spice (and brother Easy) used to belong to the Mountans who unfortunately passed away, leaving behind loving dogs and friends. We did not know them well, but Carolyn (coat maker xtraordinaire) was on WhippetWorld, too, plus we know how many people loved them. Many of you will already have read P's post about their arrival; http://patience-please.blogspot.com/2009/04/easy-and-spice.html but I thought I'd post the link in case you don' know them (we recommend you get to know them - they're great, and Patience is the most talented writer we know) and got a bit curious yesterday.

That said - we're all in need a pick-me-up, and what makes you better than baby animals? Here are Virus and Våfflan's babies at 4 weeks!

The boys

Boy #2 - how cute is that hind leg???

Pia - the little cutie!

Pralinë - the second girl. Cute as a button!

Let us out of here, will you?!!?

We hope this put a smile on your faces!

Bajas & Virus

We are really sorry that your friend is so unwell. We are sending soft purrs to the family.

Virus, you made some gorgeous babies. Every time you've posted about them, we think they couldn't possibly get any cuter. Then we see your next post about them, and their cuteness levels are higher again!
