Traveling with a dog certainly has its challenges but I think Pippi is worth it. She is a very friendly little dog, minds it none to be petted, loved on or cuddled with by new people. We joke that many people asked where she is before they even say hello. Pippi certainly knows how to draw a crowd with her arroos and tail wags.
In honor of the new FDR movie coming out we have decided to let Pippi’s grooming go this month, so that she can be furry like Fala. I am aware that the film is set before Fala was born but what the heck. Pippi is usually very well groomed, we actually try different looks from time to time. She has even had a mohawk before. I don’t plan to keep her fuzzy for long but while she is in Illinois (and the cold) she will have some extra furs.
Pippi can now be given the title of Best Dog Ever, at least best behaved. Would your little furry friend stay put if you forgot to close the door and left? I’m horribly embarrassed at having left the door wide open in the first place and upon returning, seeing my mistake, nearly lost it. That was until I saw that Pippi was just patently sitting there waiting for me to return. Who knows what temptation she resisted, how many squirrels ran by or bunnies out for a stroll. So many unpleasant thoughts ran through my head and I nearly kissed the fur off of her head. We’re lucky she’s a doll and nothing happened.
Does your Scottie usually walk on whatever narrow surface they can? When we are at a hotel making “business” Pippi will walk all around a grass area on the concrete curb until just the right spot to enter appears. I have yet to spot a grass shark but she doesn’t believe me. She likes to walk the line.
