Pipette at the beach

Pipette and I went to the beach on Friday with Sirius the Cocker puppy and his mom!

There is no puppy here. Srsly!

Silly Pipette would walk on tippy toes trying to reach the toy.. and if it was too deep to reach without swimming she gave up and turned around… and swam back to shore. Yes. She’d swim back, but not to get the toy. Silly dog!

Sirius was supposed to be her instructor, but he was sleepy and not in the mood for swimming.

He was darn cute, though!

Relaxing and watching people bathing and walking by.

She was a really good girl! I hope to take her swimming again next week and hopefully she’ll be more inclined to swim if I do so too!

Update – meet the budgies

We’re so very far behind on our blogging! There’s just been so much else going on. Instead of starting with the beginning let’s start with the more recent news. We’ve been adding to our zoo lately – two guinea pigs and four budgies!

Meet the budgies 😀
