Pippi settles in

We've finally got some good pictures of Pippi at home with us now, and I thought I'd share them. None of them quite does justice to the color of her fur, but they're close.

Day 1: checking all the perimeters and discovering good windows to look out of. So exciting! --


Day 2: getting some snuggles (her belly's still shaved from her spaying operation) --


Day 3: sacked out in Dr. V's study -- must have been all that excitement! --


Btw, note the framed X-Files trading cards in the background of that last photo. My roommate from my first two years in grad school bought that for me at a sci fi convention years ago. Hey, why didn't we think of naming the dog Scully? Oh well.

She and Callie stretch out the same way in a chair. I think they need to meet. Congrats. She is even prettier than the pictures on the rescue site. And she sounds like a terrific dog.

Oh no, she and Callie can't ever meet. Pippi's prey drive is very strong and it includes cats, I'm afraid.

Pippi is beautiful and looks supremely comfortable on the chair. Ozzie and Goldie are jealous. They only get up on the furniture when we're out of the house!c

So cute! I love the laughing smile of that first picture --- it makes the name work.

Hey, she almost looks like a different dog than in the earlier photo I saw... she was so pensive then, but now she's got that "oh yeahhhh, gettin' a belly rub on the easy chair" look of pure bliss. Has Bulloch cooked her bacon yet? Congrats to both of you and to the luckiest dog in Rust Belt!!
