The whole family is feeling happy today as in the early hours of yesterday morning our whippet gave birth to six puppies! They are all blue with white bibs and are utterly adorable.
The birth was straightforward and Tara didn't yell and scream and say "no one told me it was going to be like this" like I did when giving birth.
Oh Oh Oh I'm REALLY happy because someone else on here has WHIPPETS *YAYYYYYY*
I'm in love with whippets and have THREE, two of which I bred myself and celebrate their eleventh birthday next month. (I also have two Italian Greyounds and a labrador that was brought up by whippets).
Oh and "blue with white bibs" sounds utterly heavenly... I have one fawn with white trimmings, a blue brindle-parti, and a silver brindle who has faded to nearly white now (we call him Snowball sometimes). When my whippet gave birth she didn't yell and scream either but just said 'lets get this overwith so I can have my breakfast and a piddle'
I used to have five whippets but two are at the Rainbow Bridge now and I'll never forget them
I love them when they're babies - you can sing them to sleep just like this chap does... http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=jCnAjel02lM
(okay I know they're not whippets but you get the idea) Baby puppies smell heavenly and the little squeaky-snoffly sounds are unbelievable cute.. and they suck your pinky and pee on your jeans... *sighs with happiness*
Whippets, that's what's made me happy today *nods*
