We always knew Pippin was popular.  But now?  Well, I guess we really know.

Dragon Attack!!

by IggyGirl on July 14, 2011

The other day, my sister decided that Pippin looks like  a little dragon.  I blinked at her as she described to me what about him looked dragon-ish.

“Blee’s got a long head and his tooth sometimes sticks out.  See?  Take away his ears and give him horns and stuff and he would be a dragon!”  ["Blee" is one of Pippin's numerous nicknames.  Something of a long story on how he got it, which I'll have to tell y'all someday.  :P ]

“…  Um…  Yeah, he actually kinda does look like a dragon, when you put it that way.”

She grinned and a few hours later, showed me this picture.

 

 

This, my friends, is a “Blee Dragon”.  It is very small, but has the idea stuck in it’s head that it is a very large dragon.  It has a lot of attitude and will take on other dragons three times its size.  Fortunately for the Blee dragon, the larger dragons know that the Blee is perfectly harmless in reality and so do not retaliate to its constant bickering.  If that were not the case, the Blee would have died out ages ago.  The Blee is also very social and is one of the few dragons to be quick to crawl in a human’s lap without asking.

All in all, the Blee is a very interesting dragon.  I’m glad to have been able to meet it.  :D

The Disappearing Act

June 30, 2011

Now ‘ya see him… Now ‘ya don’t. I’m not sure what it was that had his attention, but whatever it was became interesting enough for him to leap up and race off to investigate just as I began to snap this last picture.  Yes, he was in the frame when I began to press down [...]

Where We’ve Been – Part 3

June 29, 2011

As soon as it was a more holy hour of the morning, we contacted our favorite vet. He lives in another state, but a few pictures and videos later, he told us that without a doubt, Pippin had torn his rotator cuff.

Where We’ve Been – Part 2

June 13, 2011

This is the second in a 3 part series:  read “Where We’ve Been – Part 1” to see the beginning of the story Terror struck through my heart, but there was nothing I could do until the seizure finished.  So I waited until the convulsions stopped and he finally lifted his head.  He made a [...]

Where We’ve Been- Part 1

June 2, 2011

Well!  After having a long long stretch of very little happening, so much has happened lately I hardly know where to begin! Oldest news first, I guess…  Pippin’s seizures have settled down to about once a week.  According to the vet, his seizures are surprisingly mild and with very few lasting effects.  Basically, the vet [...]

The Christmas Puppy

December 28, 2010

This story has been told before, but I think it’s time for a retelling.  Ever since I was little, I have dreamed of having a puppy all of my own.  I gobbled up stories of dogs, everything from “Biscuit the Dog” to “Where the Red Fern Grows”.  I spent hours pouring over a book of [...]

The Misadventures of a Very Naughty IG – Part 2

November 6, 2010

This is Part 2 of 2.  See yesterday’s post to read the complete story! “Strider!  Stop!!”  I cried in extremely clipped tones, utterly breathless with fear.  Strider stopped dead, right at the corner of the trash bin, and looked at me expectantly.  A few more steps, and he would have seen Pippin.  I hardly felt [...]

The Misadventures of a Very Naughty IG – Part 1

November 5, 2010

This is Part 1 of 2.  Come back tomorrow for Part 2! About a month ago, we manned a booth at The Grassfed Exchange.  Sadly, Pippin and Strider could not come in the building, and had to stay outside in the car.  It was tedious for the two of them, and we felt really bad [...]
