My Mabel had two beautiful little babies today! One bi-color blue/cream Van and a blue tuxedo with a white ringed collar all the way around his neck. I haven't wanted to jinx anything, so I have been keeping contact at a minimum. I was starting to get that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach-they didn't seem to be feeding...so I didn't want to get attached just yet. But I went in there a minute ago and HURRAY!!!!!! They were each blissfully attached to a nipple and suckling. Finally a new reason to smile. I have named them Noel and Eggnog. Now i just have to keep my fingers crossed that all goes well. Merry Christmas from Mabel, Noel and Eggnog, Habibi, Mahmoody Blue, Othie Marie, Dulcinea, Pruney, Boo, Lulu, Bertha Rose, Beanie the beagle and me!
