Katie and Grace

Hello, we are two sighthounds who like to blog and Tweet.

I am Katie Whippet - I am a brindle and white whippet, who likes to sleep and eat. I do have some duties, I keep the sofa safe, bark at the bin men, steal and hide shoes and help the puppy evict cats from our garden.

I am Grace Puppy - I am Grace Puppy - I am not actually a puppy any more, but, because I am young, Katie Whippet calls me puppy. I like to whine and play. My duties are keeping watch for cats in the garden.

We live with Mummy, and two cats, Yazz Cat and Tom Cat and like to tell everyone about what we are getting up to.

Chip(munk)s with everything

Grace Puppy

Ooo, we be quite excited!  Mummy brought some new friends home yesterdays!  The only problems is - we's not been allowed near them!

Mummy has got two chipmunks!  They do not be living in the house though - No... They be living in the Wiggy (Guinea Pig) run at the bottom of the garden. They have the old ferret cage inside the Wiggy run, which has a roof on it and is very secure.

It is good because Mummy keeps going out and down the garden to see the Chipmunks, so I can go too!  They be looking like little squirrel monsters - and they being very fast, and they be doing climbings too!  

Mummy says they are a bit frightened at the moments, so they are settling into their cage - getting used to where they are, and what food they have.  Mummy has bought them toys, so they can have a play - they are strange toys - a wheel for doings runnings - so we have something in common - we likes zoomies - but, I do my zoomies in a field! Not in a wheel.  They have a rope for doings climbings - I do not do climbings, unless it is up the stairs to go on Mummys beds!  But I does like playings with ropes!  

Mummy says they can have very small amounts of our kibble! I don't be thinkings so! It is ours! But then Mummy explains, by very small amounts she means one or two bits of kibble a day - I be thinkings that might be OK's, but will have to check with Katie Whippet.  They also bes eatings sunflower seeds and peanuts - eh? Are they beings a bird too? They can also have small amounts of fruit and veg - so they also be Wiggies!

They are also very rude! Because they poo anywhere - but then again, so does Katie Whippet, so  I will let them off..... (I hide to do my poos).

So, when I went out for my 5.30am wee this mornings, Mummy came down the garden with me - dressing gown and trainers.....how embarrassing for a Grace Puppy - to see what Chipmunks be doings!  They were asleepings - like all other sensible beings at 5.30am on a Sundays! Except for me - who needed a wee!

Mummy has been taking photos of the chipmunks - who she has named Berry and Bramble.  Berry is greedy and quite outgoing - she has even been playing zoomies on the wheel.  Bramble likes to hang upside down from the top of the cage - hence her name Bramble.  Mummy says Berry will be like a round berry if she carries on eating the way she is!

OMD, what on earth has Mummy got now?  Apparently they be called chipmunks, and they be little squirrel monsters.

We's not seen them properly!  They were taken straight down the garden and put in a cage in the Guinea Pig run!

To add insult to injury! Apparently they have been offered our Collards Kibble - I mean - How Rude!  Mummy keeps offering them fruits and various other things - eh? What about us? We just standings in the gardens whilst Mummy chirps and coos at what is basically a rodent - with a cute face and a fluffy tail! 

I am Katie Whippet, and I am not impressed! It won't be long before one bites her.....

Small World (sofa surfing)

Grace Puppy

Ooo, we's had an very exciting days today! We's met up with Sheena from the lurcher walk way back in March because she be very good at doing paintings!  Mummy wanted to have a paintings of Katie Whippet and I to hang on her livings rooms wall.

Sheena needed to get some very good photos of us, to be able to do the paintings of us, so she cans remembers what we's looks likes.  So we's be goings around to her house so we could have our pictures taken, and to see our houndy pals Eli and Loki.

When we got there, Loki was very bouncy, which was very strange because bouncing is my job! He is also bigger than me, so I did not join in.

Sheena's Mummy was there too, and they realised that Sheena's Mummy's maiden name is the same as my Mummys surname!  They then realised the had met before! Sheena's Mummy is my Granddads cousin! That makes Sheena and Mummy 2nd cousins!

If we had never gone on the lurcher walk, that rainy morning in March, we would have never have known!  If Mummy had not have asked Sheena to do the paintings of us, she would not have realised that Mummys surname was the same as Sheena's Mummys!

Katie and I are very happy because now we have an Auntie Sheena - and Mummy has a 2nd cousin!  That makes Eli and Loki our very own houndy cousins too!

Because we were houndy cousins, we made ourselves very welcome on their sofa!
