How I managed to miss this one for a whole month...
Thanks for the wonderful photos and great (if sometimes sad) stories.
Our home is the realm of Pippi Longstocking
Pippi was a friend's dog, in Denmark, and when this friend decided to go back to University she couldn't keep her dog (pets not allowed in student housing).
So we drove her to England fron Denmark, and she's delighted us ever since
Now I have wanted a dog since I was about 4 - but lived in appartments and with busy jobs a lot so it would not have been fair to a dog. But in spring 2008 my mother was poorly, my last job was finished, and it was just time to get the dog. I waited over 30 years for that dog.
As things stand, she has 2 humans home with her nearly all the time, she gets to run and play a lot, she gets on long walks - and she gets spoiled (in a good way, time and interaction and training, not treats).
Pippi is a Portuguese Water Dog, but not breed standard as she has a flat coat. The result is an incredibly cute and elegant dog, by everyone's standards.
