Well, where do I start? After moving out and into my own home and feeling very lonely, I went to a dog show with my parents and met this lovely Tibbie, Pippa.
Pippa was the sweetest girl but also very quiet, timid and had a tough start to life… when she was born, she was half the size of the other puppies and had to be hand reared by Jillian - you can imagine how special she is and the amount of care it took from Jillian to get her to a healthy place!
I already knew about Pippa through word of mouth and knew she was needing a home where she would benefit from one on one attention. The timing was just perfect, and I could not resist this cutest pup with the fluffiest Christmas grinch feet! I spoke to Jillian and told her how I would love to have her, and a couple weeks later I was picking her up to take her to her new home.
Pippa is full of mischief, stealing socks, playing with her toy mouse, running around crazy, she also loves cuddles and attention and needs to be attached to me all of the time. One thing she loves more than cuddles though is her food - her breakfast is her favourite part of the day (she wakes me up at 5am!!!). She loves visiting Zigs and Stef puppy (family Tibbies) who are kept on their toes with all her energy and have just about come to terms with her arrival… nearly a year later!
Recently we went on a little holiday to Loch Lomond where she learnt to paddle in the Loch (which is a work in progress, but we will get there), went on walks, and enjoyed doggie carrot cake in the cafe. She is looking forward to more holidays in the future!
We came into each other’s lives at the perfect time, and I can’t thank Jillian enough for trusting me and giving me the opportunity to give her special little Pippa a home full of lots of love!
