Friday Whippet Blog

Cone Boy only has one weekend to go, and then the stitches come out and the cone goes away. Yay!


Friday Whippet Blogging

Jason is now a cone-boy.


Here’s the stapled-up gash.


Jason needs some sympathy, in case you want to come by the nursery this weekend and give him a hug.

Travel Day

It’s been a full day of travel, as we’re going to the California Grown show this week. Maybe I’ll make a video of the show. Won’t that be exciting? Anyway, we’re in Newport Beach, with both dogs.


Late Whippets

I have been informed that I forgot Friday Whippet Blogging. What was I thinking!?!

Oy, now what will I do. I do have some leftover pictures from when Jaxx was visiting earlier in the year.


Hap is trying to get Benjamin and Jaxx to stop fighting and love each other. I think instead he’s scaring them.

Micah's Eggs

It must be spring, because Micah the Red-Foot Tortoise laid some eggs.

Benjamin likes potato skins.


First he smells it to make sure we really are giving him a potato skin. He can hardly believe its true.

Friday Whippet Blogging

We’re fostering a whippet.


His name is Chase, and he’s a little skittish, but a good boy.

You know, we used to rescue turtles because we have a turtle pond until that got over filled. And crested geckos, until we had so many babies. And tortoises. And a parakeet that came to our pond and wanted to be brought inside cause she was cold and lonely.

And now I guess a whippet, but that’s it. No more. Unless you have some baby chicks, that is, cause we’d definitely take in some baby chicks. And maybe a pygmy goat, but that’s it, just the one. Unless we got a farm up in Sonoma and then maybe 2 or 3 pygmy goats. But that’s it. No more than that. Unless it was well fenced and then we’d have to rescue a big tortoise if someone asked, but only if they asked. But that’s it. No more than that.
