I've been very sick with a cold for the past week and a half, but Pip has been super sweet about my not being able to play with her very much. She's not feeling all that well herself--or at least, her mouth isn't as her adult teeth keep coming in. Her baby incisors seem to be all out now, and I've found two of her baby molars--one in my shoe and one on the floor, which I stepped on. Two molars are VERY loose, but her baby canine teeth seem firmly rooted still, even though the adult ones are mostly in. The tooth fairy brought her a good chew toy and a Greenie shaped like a toothbrush.

So our first four months together have been smooth sailing. I had a lot of hopes riding on this little puppy before she was even born, and a lot of people chuckled at my "great expectations" for her. But as big as those hopes were, living with the real live puppy turns out to be better than I'd dreamed.
