Iíd like to introduce you to Basil Bear - Roxilyn Rocket Racer Very Happy

I was a little hesitant about his name being similar to Bax but I like it Confused

This was at 4 weeks..

Image

He says hello to his big brother Hobbes 🐾

Image

Image

Itís taken me a little while to pluck up the courage to get another beardie as I wanted to give myself time to grieve and the thought of getting another boy scared me Embarassed you all know how much Bax meant to me and I still struggle some days Crying or Very sad I picked Basil up on Sunday but the day before, my emotions were all over the place and I kept bursting into tears Embarassed

But now heís here Iíve calmed down Very Happy he is adorable and has stolen my heart Very Happy heís sleeping by my feet at the moment Smile

Image


I havenít got any decent pics of him yet, only a few snaps on my phone...

His favourite toy so far Laughing

Image

Heís got the beardie eye already..his eyes are lovely and dark Smile

Image

Heís so good and sleeps all night. Smile

Doris isnít keen on him yet, and has gone into hiding upstairs, but Iím sure sheíll come around as we have made progress already Very Happy

Image

Excuse the state of her but Iíve been a little busy Wink

Oh Basil, you are one beautiful boy Laughing Laughing Laughing
Don't worry too much about Doris Sandie, her mothering instincts will take over and she will love him.
I am so pleased for you, please give both Doris and Basil big hugs from all of us here xxx

Ah Huge congratulations Sandie and a big welcome to little Basil.

I know how devastated you were to lose Bax, and this little fella will help mend the hole left behind, and be a little brother and companion (in time) to Doris.

He is just gorgeous (as all Beardie puppies are Smile) and I wish you all the very best.

Look forward to watching him grow up.

All our love xxx

hey Basil. Lovely name and you're looking really cute and lovely little brother. I'm up in North Berwick on holiday now discovering this stuff called a beach and the sea. Thought you might like these photos. I like your photos. Haven't seen mum and dad for a while but when we get home I will because I will be going to Karens for another swimming lesson Shocked
