It's game on after Bailey and new friend Ronin exchange greetings and decide to play together.

His new friend wasn't fast enough for him so Bailey gives her a little push.

Sunday Tribute

Breezer and Masque frequently shared a bed - whippet lovers know all about the "whippet pile".

Power Snack

Bailey has been snacking on these (Alberta Wild) rose hips since autumn. He also snags various berries off bushes on the walk to the park, plus likes carrots and oranges - quite the omnivore.

Having a Blast

Whatever he got into that turned him into a double-ended dispenser unit seems to have gone away. After a day of rest he's back to normal and blowing off steam!

Recovery Time

Bailey was sick today but seems to have settled down. Late this evening he was looking for food again so we hope to resume play mode soon.

Sunday Tribute - part 2

The other whippet who was part of our lives was the very awesome Brassy
(BIS.MBISS.Can.Sel.Am.Ch.Nasusa Raise The Curtain, FCh).

She's Breezer's dam, and though she didn't belong to us and stayed for just a short while before going back to her permanent home, she is forever in our hearts. Brassy passed on at the end of 2004 and is greatly missed.

Sunday Tribute

This is the inaugural Sunday Tribute - every Sunday I will post photos honouring the beloved whippets who came before Bailey.

In today's post are little Masque (Ch. Nasusa Masquerade) who was able to stay with us for 14 years, and Breezer, who left us 6 weeks later at 11.5 years. Despite much effort we were never able to diagnose Breezer's root problem, the symptom was non-regenerative anemia. After Masque passed he would lie at the front door missing her terribly, we can only conclude he died of a broken heart - they were very close.

The day Masque died we found out that Bailey needed a new home. His arrival cheered Breezer up and as it turned out he's a great-great grandson of Masque's, so there is still a bit of her in the household.

Portrait Session

Bailey cooperated by sitting still long enough for a portrait. It's been cold and snowy out so mostly cooped up inside. Tomorrow will warm up though, he's looking forward to running off some steam.
