Mini things

I actually have quite a few 'playing' shots of the kids but I think this post should be about really cute but very small things.
First, you may have read on Gyeong's blog that he got 'minis' done of his greyhounds by Dip-Dip and the Bridge.
My mom saw the blog and decided to get one for me (and her and my sister).  So Shiloh is now miniaturized!
She got her eyes perfectly!  Shiloh seems to be holding it together. No more seizures and she has gotten some coordination back.  Still has some neurological signs, but nothing drastic.
She also got  a mini Trufflz (who is 12).  I love the fuzzy ears
And one of my sister's JRT, Tucker, who is also 15
Another cute mini thing...baby goats.  Now baby goats as a whole are cute.  But my sister has Angora goats..so now you add in curly hair.  THEN make it a runt who has been bottle fed...recipe for cuteness overload!  Kristen and I went to visit this particular goat this weekend...
Warning...it is crazy cute.
He really just wanted a bottle..but we let him nuzzle.
He would stop for a bit. He was a twin and his mother abandoned him. So my sister has been bottled feeding him.  He was even in her house for a week.  His sister is about 3 times bigger than he is and the mother is doing great with her.

He was very dog-like.  Just loved to be pet on..my sister says this might be an issue when he is a big male with horns..and still thinks he is the size of a chihuahua.
It took everything we had not to put him in our pocket and bring him home...
I love this one..we were definitely slimmed by the time we got done with him.
 I willpost greyhound running photos soon enough.  We are getting a very special visitor this weekend!  I can't wait to meet Omo and Fabian who are FINALLY in the USA and coming to see us this weekend.

The Mini-Me's are so cute. I think Mr. Angora Baby Goat should have his own Mini-Me :)

Lynne did a great job on your Mini and that baby goat is precious! He reminds me of the Beekman Boys' baby runt goat, Faintly. Have you seen her? http://beekman1802.com/is-faintly-bigger-than/
Glad Shiloh is feeling better!

Aren't those mini-mes fantastic! So much like the dogs they represent. So glad Shiloh is hanging in there. Hopefully she will get a new lease on life with the warmer weather! Angora kids are such cuties. We've got a few goats for neighbours but they aren't nearly as cute as angoras. Have Katy and family gone back to the US to live? I figure Omo and Fabian wouldn't be there for a holiday:) Looking forward to hearing about the visit ... and seeing photos:)

Hi Trina
So nice to see mini Shiloh with the real Shiloh and the 2 Truflz are adorable too!
So glad that Shiloh's health has improved.
I can hardly look at that baby goat without my heart melting, awwwwwww.

Oh my gosh, the baby goat is adorable. As are the Mini-Me's. I'm so glad Shiloh is doing well!
