Burrowing in bed!
Cold and damp weather
All toys, but so far, the squeaky dog I bought her
Through the woods at Ballymaloe
Coming when called, leaping like a gazelle, and snuggling
This page in anticipation of the Arrival of MOUSE!
Bree and Elizabeth are headed back to the Emerald Isle and will be returning on September 11, 2007 with the newest immigrant, MOUSE. Mouse is a Whippet, approximately seven months old, and has been residing with friends Melanie sharpe-Bolster and husband Desmond for the past few months. What we know of Mouse is as follows:
She is a BURROWER, like most Whippets.
She loves to sleep in the bed with you, burrowed as far under the covers and into your side as possible.
She is full of fun and mischief, and the only thing she loves as much as frisking is sleeping. She sleeps as hard as she plays.
We can not wait to meet her!!!
Her proposed new home will be in Montclair, NJ, with a family of three young girls who are looking to add a fourth Princess to the family.
Updates to come!!
MOUSE IS HERE!
After spending 5 idyllic days with Bree and Elizabeth at Ballymaloe House in Ireland--where she spent her time running on the beach, walking in the woods, chasing chickens, meeting donkeys, and playing with her friend Flicker the puppy--Mouse made the long journey over to JFK airport on September 11. She arrived full of fun and curiosity at her new surroundings, and very quickly adapted to the less-than-pastoral setting of our house and yard in New Jersey. She is The Most Snuggly, Cuddly, Loveable dog we have ever met and likes nothing more than to sit in your lap the minute you sit down, and crawl under the covers if you even look like you're getting ready for bed. She loves to sleep, almost more than she loves to play. She prefers soccer balls over tennis balls, as they present a greater challenge to fit into her mouth. She is very obedient and waits patiently for her meals, comes when called, and will follow your movements likea shadow. She ADORES other dogs, but is very noisy when she sees the, so she sometimes scares them off before she has a chance to introduce herself properly. Quiet as a mouse, she is NOT. She gets so excited when she sees other dogs that she barks way too much for anyone's taste, and must be taught some manners in that regard. Big dogs have actually been scared off by her vocal invitations to play!
Mouse will meet her potential new family this week, although Bree and Elizabeth are extremely reluctant to let her go. We would love for her to be a part of our own family, a playful sister for Jessie and Rose.
More updates on her adjustment to life in America to come!
I could not be more pleased with how Mouse is doing in her new home. She lives with three wonderful little girls, Isabella, Lillie, and Camilla. They live in a big house with a yard across the street from a park, and take excellent care of this very special dog. If I couldn't keep Mouse myself, there is no place I'd rather she be than with her new family.
No bed too small, no blanket too big
