The Daily Pip

As many of you know, I have struggled with how to continue the blog since losing Pip last October. Although I love and adore our new dog Ruby, it just hasn't felt right using Pip's blog to tell her story …and yet starting a new blog for Ruby doesn't feel right either.

Well, I think I finally have a solution and it's called The Daily Pip. As I mentioned in my post last Wednesday, I started a Facebook page and Instagram account about two weeks ago called The Daily Pip. Each day I post a picture with a life lesson, funny caption, or "pip-ism". Some posts feature Pip, some Ruby, and some guest posts by other dogs and cats. After much thought, I've decided to try The Daily Pip on the blog. 

Today I am posting the first week of Daily Pip posts as they appeared last week on Facebook and Instagram. Friday I will post this week's Daily Pip posts and then next Monday, I will start posting one picture per day on the blog, Facebook, and Instagram.

Once we get going, guest posts will be welcome. If you would like to featured on The Daily Pip (picture and life lesson), let me know. 

I hope this will be a perfect way to honor the past and celebrate the future!

Since the polar vortex has returned to much of the United States, I thought it would be a perfect time to share some pictures from my first family trip to Northern Wisconsin.

Note the sunlight on my fur ...not much of that happening right now.

Pip left me notes on a magical place called Wisconsin where my family vacations in the summer. He said there were lots of trees to smell, rivers and lakes to swim in, deer to bark at, picnic tables to sleep on. 

Being a city dog, he assured me that Cousin Wrigley would show me how to hunt ...

or maybe just hunt for both of us while I sunbathed on the dock

Notice the mysterious beer can behind me …it appeared out of nowhere just as the burgers went on the grill. We are not sure how it got there, but five minutes later two cheeseburgers disappeared. Strange things happen in the woods. Pip? 

Most of all, Pip promised me that I would spend many magical hours with my sister gazing out at the river, sharing hopes and dreams ...and he was right. 

Summer 2012, Pip's final trip to Wisconsin

I have started a new Facebook page and Instragram account called The Daily Pip where we will be sharing pictures of Pip (and other dogs) with some of Pip's life lessons and one-liners. If you are on facebook, please visit us!

With our crazy work and home schedule, facebook is a little easier to manage. However, we are also going to try and blog every Wednesday.

We Are With You, Macey!

A dear friend of ours hasn't been feeling well and is having some very big (and scary) tests today. Our paws are crossed tight for you Macey! We are with you in spirit and we know you will be OK. And if you smell a little cheeseburger in the doctor's office …never fear Angel Pip is near!

Comments are off. You can leave good wishes and messages of support here.

Remembering Pip ...

A year ago yesterday we lost Pip …he was truly one of the most loyal, funny, stubborn, compassionate, loving, determined, accepting, generous spirits I have ever known and I'm so grateful for our 13 years together.  

Rest in peace sweet Pip …miss and love you, always.
