The Photo Shoot



My pet sitter, when I go out of town, is also a talented professional photographer (Progressive Portraits). I asked her to take some photos of Chou Chou. Like children, puppies grow up so fast!

Chou Chou is Growing


She keeps me busy and follows me around the house like a good herding dog. The breeder said to feed her chicken and rice for 10 days, so I got Empire kosher chicken for her. I am a vegetarian, but I am cooking chicken for the puppy. She's a big eater and I hope this expensive chicken diet won't last too long. ("Mmm. It's very tasty!")

What's in a Name?


This pup isn't a tricky Trixie. She sits around all day like a cat. I expected the wild creature the breeder told me about. No, she very calm and sweet! So, she is Chou Chou. It is fun to say it (shoo shoo). She seems to like the sh sound.

What is Puppy's Name?








Yellow Ribbon went to the vet today. The breeder's contract said she had to be checked when she arrived. She weighs 14 ' 11". Too big for the scale!

Yellow Ribbon Puppy Arrives


The puppy is here! The couple who brought her to me kept her overnight, bathed and cleaned her from being on a plane all day yesterday, fed her, played with her. They were so kind to the little puppy! They have several briards -- how can anyone manage more than one?

"Trixie"






The breeder described Yellow Ribbon puppy as the alpha in her litter of seven. The pup likes to follow her around the yard, she says, nipping at her work boots.
