Who let the Pip out?

So as I returned from the store, I let Pip and Ellie have some outdoor time as I carried in the bags.  Normally Pip stays close and herds me and Ellie back in the house.  Not today!  Pip took off barking at who knows what.  Luckily, she only went 3 houses down and came back as I finally caught up to her.  No great adventure for her!

Do these glasses make me look smarter?

In Euclidean plane geometry, pi is defined as the ration of a circle's circumference to its diameter.  In usual decimal notation it is approximately 3.1459...............
there's pie??  where??

Need a lift?

Pip has taken to sitting/sleeping on a pillow on the sofa. I guess since she's the littlest member in the family she needs a booster seat? 
Either that or she's got herself a new throne to rule the house from!

Looks can be deceiving

 Pip may look cute and trustworthy but don't turn your back if there is food out.  She will have eaten your morning bagel while you go get something to drink. Way to steal food Pip, like I never put crunchies in your food bowl!

Thunder Road

My pippy-senses are tingling! 
What is making that thundering booms I keep hearing at all hours of the day?  Oh, that's right--Heavy Company is in the field doing tank exercises. Well, I'll be glad when they stop!  I get so scared when they go boom, that I have to snuggle with mom, no matter what she's doing.

Maybe dogs aren't colorblind

Pip has turned out to be a somewhat racist dog.  Nick is over at our house pretty much every day and every day Pip barks her head off at him.  Not just regular barking...more like "I hate you, go away" barking.  Strange coming from a black and white dog.  Way to be racist there Pip!

note the terrified look on her face.  what a pinhead!

Why, yes

I am an evil bat dog sent from the depths of hell to steal your sausages!  I'm so evil I need a pretty pink leash  :)

Zedd used to love dressing up but I guess since he's a "big boy" now, he no longer enjoys it-- even if it is a shirt with a hoot owl on it!

Nap Time

Who needs a pillow?  A bag of shredded paper will do just fine.  Way to recycle Ellie!

The Bark Heard 'Round the World...

or at least Foxborough, MA.  Pip normally hates football and especially when we hoot and holler at the screen. ( It's gonna be a long 17 weeks!)  Anyways, last night Buffalo at Patriots (ptooey!)-Bills are leading 17-13 late in the 4th quarter, Pip is agitated from the cheering for the Bills-Michael tells her it's ok to get excited and bark during football, so she does.  And what happens?  Patriots come back to win it 25-24.  Damn you Pip!  Damn Patriot fan!!

Yeah, that's right, no ice cream for you Pip until you learn how to root for the Titans!!

Fashionista Pip

Here, Pip is modeling a colorful raincoat for dogs with discerning taste and a desire to stay dry while doing their business outside on a rainy day.

Can you hear me now?

Doing the doo

Not to be outdone by Elliot, Pip figured the best way for her to get attention was to poop on my bathmat. And guess who stepped in it?! Yup, I did the doo. Maybe she'll blame it on her evil twin "RoboPip"?

Lizard Infestation

We apparently are having a lizard infestation because twice last night Elliot brought in a lizard to play with. Elliot is a hunter just for the sport of it. She loves to play with her "toys" and as soon as they stop moving, she quickly loses interest. But to keep the circle of life going, I make Michael put the carcass outside for the rest of the animal kingdom to feast on :)

Sous Chefs

Any time I start preparing dinner, my lovely assistants are with me--mainly in case I drop anything on the floor!

Morning Bucky

It would be much cuter if I didn't have to get up several times a night to take Pip out or try to keep her from waking Michael up before the alarm goes off.
