The Great Expectations Litter

photos by Ágnes Szilágyi
Charles Dickens had a Havana Silk Dog, and Pip's breeder liked the idea of naming this litter of puppies for characters in Great Expectations. Herbie is named for Herbert Pocket, Pip's best friend, who was ever sweet and affable. Joey is named for Joe Gargery, ever loyal and protective of Pip. And Pippi is named for, well, Pip!

Julie writes that the little family passed their vet exam with flying colors. The puppies are robust and healthy. I'm 500 miles away, and so SO antsy to actually see and hold Pip. How am I going to last two and a half more months?
