Holy Terror? Nobody told you to name her Pip! LOL Just kidding. But yes, Carol it is a glorious name!

Looks like she's keeping you busy! It's hard work, but I miss the puppyhood sometimes. I think it's the puppy breath! Do you have any more pictures of her? I'll look at your site. Glad the paw is healing!

Hey, I got my Newman so that Pip could train him - now he barks like a lunatic too!

How are you doing Dolly?
I'm ok, just getting older and all the bs associated with that.
I think with Pippy..... what I have is a large fenced yard but I can see she is a digger, so I think I still will need to put up a run in the fenced yard, at times when I cannot keep an eye on her, like when I need to mow In the fall before winter set in, I'm looking from my garden shed and thought she looks like she's outside the fence, she was! there was a spot by my walkway where she somehow pushed the fenced and crawled under it or she crawled under the walkway to get under the fence, well then I had to go out & buy cement and some bricks! Mixing cement etc, it was around maybe 45 degrees and I was freezing and cursing.

Thank God she just ran up the hill a bit and I acted like I had a treat to give her. So I think I better start off with a run, when I brought her home first 3 weeks before it really got cold, she liked to eat a clump of dirt with grass, I think maybe that was due to being in a shelter & maybe no love there. She likes to eat snow, she follows me all around, she must think I am going to leave her, will cry when I go down to get the mail and barks when I come back (the barking is what Niki did when she was mad I was gone & didn't take her with me). I haven't taken her for lots of rides yet, she went into my trash in the car, well she's just a pup still, she don't know whats good to eat yet, I can't leash her in the car, too dangerous. I'm still leary of her trying to do a leap out of the car, Oh I don't remember going thru this with my other dogs, I most likely did and forgot as time went by.
Of course she sleeps with me, first day I got her put her in the bed so she'd feel she was safe, she probably thought what is this? since then she knows when we are going to bed and is in the bed before I am.
The Kong ball with the treats you put inside she want's nothing to do with it.

I got my work cut out for me and Pip once the weather breaks if it ever breaks, usually end of April its safe.

I haven't taken her wrap off her cut yet, maybe on weekend and I pray its healed, if it has a scab I'll have to wrap it again cuz she will chew the scab off. They just don't know we are trying to protect them.

Take care
Dolly & Angel Niki

Dolly - I get the BS part of getting older. I dread the spring because I know I've got to get out there and start working in the yard. Used to love it! What are we going to do?

I wanted to tell you that my Buddy was also an "escape artist" supreme! Always digging holes to get out of the yard. Just like Stalag 17! Eventually he stopped. But it took quite awhile. I hope that's not the case with Pip. My Buddy just liked to visit the other dogs in the neighborhood. Everytime I caught him outside the fence - I lost 10 years on my life. We just kept thinking - okay now it's secure! The dog run is probably a good idea.

I thing it's so cute how she learned to get in bed before you! They learn so fast! I am glad to read how you two are bonding. It really warms this old heart of mine!

...at times I still think Niki is laying here and there, it takes time. If it makes any sense I get sad when I go to the store where I bought her ground turkey & vegetables, I always think of Niki then,....

Dolly

I totally understand. My "new" little one (Izzy) is a rescue, and I still occassionally call her Ruffles. Guess "the Girl" is thinking of me! Izzy doesn't seem to mind, although she does know her own name because she turns her head when we call her.

You are right; it's good to have a little one to help ease the pain of loss.

Hope you and Pip are getting along well these days.

Mary

Just a Hi to everyone

The weather is lousy here as usual, course it seems to be that way all over the country, rain, rain continuous, maybe by weekend it will be nice?

Pip is doing fine and will need to get her nails trimmed again, with all the rain I can't blame her for not wanting to out very long in the murky grass & mud, she still has a habit of eating dirt, not as much as when I brought her home, can't understand why she does that and I can't remember way back if my other dogs did it.

Hi Dolly,

Nice to hear from you! We're ducking tornadoes down here in Texas. Very scarey. Toby loves to eat wood chips which I am not very successfully trying to stop. I was told once they eat dirt to satisfy a mineral deficiency. Apparently so do some children. Not sure how true it is.

Default My friend Pip

Pip's doing good, active as ever, her lil cut is finally healing and she's letting her leg alone.

She's very shy and hides when I correct her, I had read this about Brittany's, tho she's mostly border collie, I can see some of the Brittany side of her.
