Faster Than a Speeding Bullet

When she unfurls her legs, it reminds me of unfolding a paper clip. They are ridiculously thin and long. Her skinny frame gives the illusion of daintiness, but don't be fooled. Rather than daintiness it represents speed and agility. She moves gracefully and bolts sharply like a fawn at an unexpected noise. She's a head taller than Dudley but weighs less than half as much.

She came equipped with at least two vital skills: how to politely share a bed with humans and how to do her business outside. The rest we'll help her figure out. She's quite adept at dispensing snuggles and puppy kisses. I'm not a major fan of the puppy kiss, but Wendy adores them.

Meet Pixie, the spritely sweet girl who has adopted us.
She fits right in.

Sweeeeeeet! Your other pups is saying,'Uh, what's up with this? Was I consulted? I don't think so." That's what our two are asking. But really...ya gotta love the puppy kisses. They smell so...puppylike.

Glad you are able to fatten your vet folder.

What a precious photo!

Pixie reminds me of my baby with the thin legs, and great speed. Even at 13, she still goes like a rocket!

How did you get Pixie? She is a VERY LUCKY DOG. DUDLEY IS SO CUTE!

People who don't like puppy kisses are going to hell. Buh bye Career Guy. Suzanne is already going for not liking mashed potatoes...ya can't go for two things, that would be double jeopardy...oh wait, she's going cuz she's a homo too. Satan never follows the rules.
