A warm-hearted thank you to all of you who showed so much kindness and love after the loss of our beloved Eivor and Pearl last month. Your prayers and healing have brought us great comfort.

We had no intention of fostering or adopting another dog so soon until angels both in heaven and on earth brought a sweet elderly whippet into our lives whose owner had passed away unexpectedly.

We look forward to introducing her on our sister blog, Whippet Wisdom, early next week.

Wishing you all a blessed Sunday and a peaceful week ahead,

with love from Xenia xxx

  4. Oh Xenia….I did not know that both Pearl and Eivor had gone. So heartbreaking. But I see that the animal goddess has played a hand in sending an orphan your way. Any dog would be blessed indeed to have a life with you.

  5. Your images and haiku are the very definition of beauty and perfection and tranquility. When I read that a new companion has come into your life, I was so excited! I knew immediately that this new friend will be the luckiest whippet in the world to have you in her life. I have a feeling Eivor and Pearl are smiling. You bring such love and kindness to your animal companions, and that shines so brilliantly in your words and photos. I look forward to meeting your new friend. Sending lots of love to you and yours. πŸ™‚
