You’re still here? Perhaps you were wondering if I went on an extended vacation?
No. It’s 24/7 puppy right now. She’s eating my hoodie as we speak. We’ve named her Pippin, Pip for short and her days are filled with long naps punctuated with huge bursts of energy. Pip is both puppy and terrier, a very energetic combination. She’s five pounds of devil in the tiniest little body.
My vet says she’ll get to a whopping ten pounds a year from now.
House training is Raaather a pain in the snow, and I never considered myself a dog in a coat person, but I had to buy her a jacket because she was shivering nonstop.
I’m alternating between total despair at ever getting anything done ever again, ever, and working away with a sleeping puppy either in my lap or next to me on the couch. At least I’m getting my writing done – as they say – protect the work.
