Feeling a Little Blue?


So, here's my dog, Pippi, sitting by her stuffed moose, Retrievering, as usual.  All in a day's work.


My daughter and grandson left this weekend after visiting for two weeks.

Pippi was very fond of my grandson's toys, though the books were of very little interest to her.  This twinkling ball was wonderful, and she also kept sneaking off with a small, blue stuffed whale of his. I discovered that she enjoys retrieving paper airplanes, too.  Fortunately, she is a Golden, so her mouth is very soft.  We get her chew toys, and she keeps them for years.  I think she still owns every toy we've ever given her.  We try to only give her children's stuffed animals, as she doesn't like the squeak in all the dog toys.  She hardly ever makes a toy squeak though.  But if we accidentally step on it, and it squeaks, she gets concerned for its health and well-being.

Pippi has enjoyed having this cracker dropper/toy hauler around.
I think she misses him, almost as much as I do.
The cat...not so much.

Bye-bye!  Thanks for sharing!
