Cold Feet and Fat Eric

We love this Italian Greyhound's solution to cold feet. We think Merci and Buddy could manage this, but not Sam.

Just as we were going to publish this, the CB's Wednesday news posted.  And as we feared, Fat Eric has left the UK for the bridge while his mom is visiting in the US. It was very brave and loving of her to have given permission to do what is best for Eric, rather than try to prolong his suffering until she returns home. We send her purrs and tail wags and hugs.  We will miss him.
