Some pretty pictures of Vivien taken last night!  She was gazing at the candles in the holders that I keep in my fireplace.  She always turns out to be an elegant silhouette in photos... in this case it's particularly pronounced because of the lighting. 

Here she's looking at the camera (but you can hardly tell!).

And, here she's being pensive, looking at the candles.

She's definitely my little Halloween cat!

I got a whippet.  Ten years old.  Sleeps a lot.  :)



Her name is Madison, and she's a real sweetheart.  She loves the sofas and the beds!

This morning I said goodbye to my sweet girl.  Her advanced age (13) and IBS were seriously affecting her quality of life, and I decided it was time to end her suffering.

Rest in peace, Madison.

Fran, this must be a sad day for you. We are with you, friend. I know Madison had a sweet life, a sweet and long life with you and your family.  :-*
Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

{{{{{{{{{FRAN}}}}}}}}}}

She looks like she liked you to kiss her face.  :)

They are part of the family---it's a sad time.

Bless your hearts---I'm thinking of you and your family.

Thanks for the kind words, FRiend Lee and Shasta.  We're doing OK, all things considered.

Oh, this is so sad. It's such a hard thing to make this decision and say goodbye to a beloved pet. They're family members.
Madison looks nothing but gentle. She must have been a sweet dog. Poor Fran.

So sorry to hear about Madison, what a gorgeous dog!  I'm sure she had a charmed life with you though, so that's a bit comforting.

This will cheer people up.  A friend of mine just recently set up house with her lover and they bought this cute miniature Deer-Head Chihuahua.  His name is Newt and I consider him my nephew, lol! :


(That's me holding him.)

When she said they were looking at Chihuahuas I just groaned thinking of all those awful nervous yappy things I've seen all my life.  Anyone see that "devil Dog" episode of Caesar,the Dog Whisperer featuring a nervous yappy fat chihuaha from hell and he was still awful, although less so, after Ceasar did his thing?  Well that dog perfectly personified (Doggified?) my opinion of this breed.

Well that image left the second I met Newt.  That pup singlehandedly redeemed his whole breed.  Although he IS nervous (!), he's not yappy and he's incredibly social.  He seems to love me for some reason. (and the poor thing is living with two lesbians, lol!  ;))

Here are a few more shots, including one of him at a Doggie Halloween Party (!?)
