Meet Pippin

I decided the other day that I want to include more lifestyle posts on this blog, as a way to make it more personal and also so I can look back at these posts in the future. I thought to kick things off that I would introduce you to the most important little guy in my life, my yorkshire terrior, Pippin! This little pooch has just turned 14 years old so I thought it would be nice to share with you guys 14 facts about him!

1| We got this little man when I was 7 years old. I came back from a weekend in Wales to find a little black ball of fluff running around my back garden!
2| When he was a puppy he could fit in one hand and absolutely loved to be picked up and cuddled.
3| He also used to get as far into an empty crisp packet as he possibly could to lick all the salt out!
4 | He absolutely hates other dogs! It's so embarrassing in the street when a cute little dog wants to play with him and he's just yapping away like he wants to savage them. It's completely the opposite when it comes to humans though. He will walk up to any human and get as many cuddles and kisses as he can!
5| He likes to play with his toys by putting them on his bed, grabbing it with his teeth and shaking the bed until the toys flies off and he can chase after it and do it all over again. For many years he also tried to balance any and every toy on his back... no idea why!
6| He will eat ANYTHING. Food wrappers, dirt, hair, plastic... absolutely anything!
7| When his hair grows long it only goes curly on his back legs and bum, it's the most adorable thing in the world.
8| Every night before bed he gives me one kiss on my nose.
9| We decided to name him Pippin after the dog on an old tv show called Come Outside where this woman and her dog would fly around in a polka dot aeroplane and teach kids about the places they visited. 
10| There has been numerous occasions where we've had to literally drag his bed to the back door with him still sleeping in it, pick him up and put him outside to get him to go for a wee before bed, he's that lazy!
11| The minute you start to stroke him, he will lift his paw and refuse to put it down until you stroke his belly instead. 
12| Even though he loved being picked up as a puppy, he hates it now and it's a very lucky day if we manage to pick him up without him throwing a hissy fit. Nobody outside of my immediate family can pick him up, which disappoints many people! 
13| He claims everything he possibly can. If another dog comes to stay for the weekend, he will sleep in their bed and play with their toys!
14| When I'm upset, Pippin will realise this and instantly come to give me cuddles and kisses, probably cheering me up better than most humans could!

I love this little guy more than words could ever say. Dogs really are mans best friend and I honestly don't know what life would be like without him. There are so many other things that make this little guy who he is but if I listed them all we'd be here all day. Just know that he is the best pup in the world and I wouldn't swap him for anything! I try my hardest to spoil him rotten and keep him happy and I only hope I'm doing a good enough job for him!

  2. This was so cute to read!! I agree, I love when bloggers do personal posts. I have a tiny schnoodle dog and she sounds very similar, she also yips at all the other dogs she sees. A bit embarassing, but she's really quite friendly she just wants to be heard! :)
