   Leave a bone for Piper Emerson White

Piper Piper Windshield Wiper, Pipie, Pipita, Demon Spawn, Piranha, Hoover (like the vacuum cleaner), Swiffer, Angelbaby, What Were We Thinking

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Gotcha Date:
May 10th 2005

March 6th 2005

Eating anything in her path (if it fits in her mouth it's fair game), jumping on people, licking their faces and sticking her tongue in their nostrils, following Barker wherever he goes, and unfortunately -- eating bunny poop (she thinks it's caviar)

THUNDER, LIGHTNING, RAINSTORMS, and the Broom Brush truck; crickets at night -- she hears them and barks forever; having to take a bath; riding in the car (she sometimes gets carsick); and a big phobia is SHEETS -- she freaks when we fold sheets!

Favorite Toy:
Definitely LAMBIE; also Barker's ear (loves to chew on it); squeaky sneaker, squeaky mouse, small balls, beanbag, lavender rope chew toy, pink flamingo

Favorite Food:
I think we've covered that; she also likes Milkbone biscuits, yogurt and Trader Joe's chunky chicken dinner

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere is fine as long as she can eat acorns, grass, dirt, little rocks and -- did I mention -- bunny poop

Best Tricks:
"Go git it" (with the ball), coming when you whistle, sitting for treats; when I want to put clothing on over her head, I say "1-2-3-UP" and she cooperates.

Arrival Story:
We fell in love with Piper on line. We are in NJ and Piper lived in TX. Couldn't drive there, hated the idea of her being shipped but in the end that's what we did. Our big girl traveled by air to us and misses the TX weather (she shivers a lot after her bath).

We want to find a Harley costume for Piper for Halloween -- her hair gets wild and with some gel and a leather cap and jacket (and maybe a pink skirt) she will be a sight. She's totally wild and plays like crazy till she passes out, then naps like dough for a while and then starts again. She thinks her "Big Brother" Barker hung the moon, but loves Mommy, Daddy and Nanny Kathy too. Like Barker, she especially likes little kids.

Forums Motto:

Spoiled? Who, ME? by Piper

He says we are both "SENIORS" but Mommy still calls us her pups. I am having my birthday today, I am nine, is that old? I don't feel old. I am sposed to be careful of my back cuz I have two herniated discs, but even when Mommy turns the chair cushions so I can't jump on them I jump sometimes anyway -- and even if she blocks the stairs, sometimes I get around the gate and sneak up. Barker says he's going to eat all of my birthday cake but Mommy says he will have a teensy bit just like I will. We have had snow and ice FOREVER here and we are sick of it. When things warm up I will go out and smell all my smells and run around like a crazy banana. That's what Nanny calls me. Daddy made my cake and he put coconuts on top. But Mommy says if I don't like em she will scrape em off. Do I get the senior discount at Denny's now?

Turns out that I now have two herniated discs in my back -- so my Mom and Dad do NOT want me to jump up on things or go up and down stairs, because they don't want me to hurt my back. So they turn the pillows over on the chairs and make everything all messed up so I can't jump on things; but when the cleaners come and straighten the furniture up, I jump right up on it anyway -- AND if someone forgets to put up the gate, I run right up the stairs AND right back down again! They have no idea who they're dealing with. I take Chinese herbs called Mobility 3 and they are sposed to help my back, and I don't cry any more so I guess they're helping.

Mommy carries me up and down stairs (or Nanny or Daddy does) -- I get the sympathy vote from my ouchy back. And there is a ramp by the front door because I'm not sposed to go up the stairs. There is something in our driveway that Nala (the cat) killed but I can't tell what it is and I don't want to know. She's a hunter, Mommy says. I hunt for TREATS -- sometimes they hide under the furniture! Time to go up and snuggle, and then I will cry because my Nanny is at the beach, and then I will go to sleep. Tomorrow is Friday and I think maybe we're going to the park -- NOT the dog park, I hate those big scary dogs! Nite nite Nanny at the Beach, come home soon. Love, Piper

It's me Piper -- I am sleepy because Mommy and Daddy had a fire going and it always makes me YAAWWWN. Nanny was at her sister's but she is home now. Mommy gave us treats in our stockings, peanut butter and banana YUMM, and after supper we might get some more. Santa Paws did not bring us toys cuz we don't really play with them much, except I love my Lambie and I shake her. Barker is on Nanny's lap right now. Mommy is yawning, I guess the fire made her sleepy too. She is going to go up and play Christmas carols on the piano, I like that. Then we are going to snuggle and watch a holiday movie.

I hope all my puppy friends had a nice day of love like we did! Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and Happy Ho Ho Ho!
