Pip is still a puppy—only 11 months old—but in the studio you'd have thought she was a well-trained, Zen-like adult. First of course, she loved meeting Larry—but who doesn't?
- 1000 Canada Geese
- 150 Tundra Swans
- 1 American Black Duck
- 70 Mallards
- 75 Sandhill Cranes
That was astonishing for December 9. But I don't know if I was more surprised by the birds or by Pip's reaction to them. She was transfixed! A small plane went by, and the birds started calling loudly—I thought the whole mass of them were going to explode in flight, but they just chattered for a minute or so and settled down again. Throughout the time we were there, even when they were just calling quietly, Pip could not pull her eyes away.
What a splendid day, and all because of Larry Meiller. I hope you pledged!!
