Pip the Birding Dog

I have a lot to catch up on as far as telling about my first wonderful days with Pip. But here are a few photos from today, when we took a little time for backyard birding. She is VERY aware of bird sounds and sometimes watches finches at the feeder or flying overhead. A pair of Merlins is nesting nearby, and she pays attention to their noisy calls and tracks them when they fly over (if they're close). And she definitely heard the #42 bird on her life list, a Pileated Woodpecker. I told her that from now on, that bird will hold the answer to life, the universe, and everything for her. That made her wag her tail.

  1. Ditto on cuteness overload! This year I might be Pip watching more than bird watching.
