Here are RiRi and Nevin … happy as clams … as you can see they have happily adjusted and are posing in this photo.

RiRi the Whippet Puppy Meets Her Brother Nevin

Yesterday was a banner day for little whippet puppy RiRi.  She took her first car ride to her new home in Virginia and then she met all the members of her new family.  But best of all, she met her whippet brother, Nevin, for the very first time.  As you can see from the photo, both RiRi and Nevin have settled in quite well.

Stay tuned for all the fun adventures of this fun doggie duo … RiRi, the whippet puppy, and her brother Nevin.

RiRi the Whippet Puppy Finds a New Home

Here is RiRi … she is happy to have found her new owners.  RiRi, the whippet puppy, is counting the days until she moves to her new home with her new family.  She is anxious to meet her brother, Nevin, another whippet.

Stay tuned for RiRi’s adventures.

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!
