Several new mice coming from the wonderful Little Bud Mousery up north. Hannah has sent me four does and a buck via a friend. These are some update images on them, as last time I posted they were tiny. They're now 7 weeks old:
This is the buck. In memory of my dear old chum Basil, all future solitary bucks (as far as possible) will get a name starting with "B". Think of it like the characters who get to be "M" in a James Bond movie (Olivia Mansfield (Dench), Gareth Mallory (Feinnes). Daft I know, but anyway, let me first of all introduce Benjamin, the new "B":
And now the does, not yet pre-named, in part because I suspect I'm going to have a handful with this first one and so her character needs to be allowed to come out first. So, first the blue:
Then the sealpoint doe (I am in love already!!):
And lastly, the bluepoint does, plus the blue (I think):
I'm so looking forward to seeing them. It's been a difficult few months one way and the other and some light relief in the form of comedic mouse antics will be most welcome.
Ask not what your rodent can do for you...
