Ups and Downs

Today started out full of happiness as I wished my Dad, Panther and all my Aunts and Uncles a special happy 6th birthday. I hope they all got lots of special treats today.

I also really enjoyed being an omnivore today - I ate wild strawberries, pears, blueberries, grass clippings, and a plum. Deeeelicious - and I still had room for my dinner.

But this afternoon, something sad happened. My whippet friend, Drambuie passed away. He was a good role model for me when I was learning to race as a youngster. His exuberance and spirit will be dearly missed. Run free Drambuie - you left us too soon but I suppose you get all the bunnies you want now and you don't have to go in that stupid starting box if you don't want to. Plus, you can steal freshly roasted turkeys off the counter all you want and nobody can stop you.

RIP Drambuie

Sorry about Drambuie. He will always live in your memory!

Someone sent me a link to your blog. I have a newly rescued half-whippet that is the most loving dog I've ever had. However, she tries to kill small dogs. This has me worried to death! She's so fast, I can't stop her once she starts running toward a neighbor dog. I've pretty much decided I'm going to have to keep her on a leash all the time. Oh yeah, she counter-surfs too, but I can deal with that.
