    I brought home my first baby silkie last night. I was worried at first because she was pretty stressed out but now she's doing great. I brought her to work with me and she's chillin' in an old purse thats on top of a heating pad set on low. Shes wondered out a few times but always returns and takes a little nap. So cute.. [​IMG] I can't leave the room though or she gets upset.

    Her name is Peanut and she's three weeks old. (Not sure if its a boy or girl yet of course)

    [​IMG] So cute! I adore the Silkies...their personalities are one of their best points! Remember though, they are very, very timid.
    Definitely get them a friend! Enjoy!
