Introducing RiRi the Little Whippet Puppy

We are happy to introduce you to Timbreblue’s Dalriada Gormaine-Breagha Cu Brash, a six week old whippet puppy from the state of Virginia.  Her name is Scottish and her nickname is RiRi (pronounced ree-ree).

To give you a little history of how she got her name, there was an ancient kingdom in northern Ireland called Dal Riada, and Fergus I crossed the Irish sea from there to what we now call Scotland.  He founded a new Dal Riada kingdom in the area now known as Argyllshire, and Clan Ferguson descends from Fergus I.

The Gaelic word gormaine means blue.  Also, the Scottish saltire flag is mostly blue, with a white cross on it going from corner to corner.  You’ll notice in photos that RiRi is mostly blue with some white across her face.  We think she is such a darling little girl … so much so that we will be following the “Life & Times of RiRi”  along with her brother, Nevin, another whippet, when she moves in with the family in August.  Keep checking back, this is gonna be fun!
