Rupert the deer.

This has nothing to do with anything, but in order to celebrate finally getting caught up with my blogroll (I was a full week behind!), I’m going to just sit and look at Rupert the orphaned baby deer for a little while. Awww. He looks like Fritz!



Read Rupert’s story and see more photos here.

    Wow. I was just looking at this a couple of hours ago. I can’t believe he just died. It must be one of those days, because I feel like crying.

    I was so happy to see this little angel Rupert via email only to learn of his passing moments later. At least he’s with his Mum now but we were blessed to have him even if for a short time…much love to both of them and for the caretakers who tried to keep him in this world.

    I too just saw Rupert via an email sent the other day. I am saddened to hear of his death when I googled the name. His legacy lives via the internet! Heartfelt thanks to all those who try daily to make a difference in an animals life. You are all angels. It is so sad to lose one like this. Love to Rupert
