Chips And Tip

Guest simile

Recommended Posts

I went to Oregon this weekend and met up with some lovely folks from the Oregon Greyhound Association who introduced me to some wonderful hounds that were looking for homes. Tip said he wanted to come to Alaska. He's 2.5 years old, and just wonderful. So, here he is, BB's Inside Tip :


The day I met and fell in love with him, and he let me know a new sister, unlimited treats and couch privileges sounded pretty good






Out on the deck - he mastered the stairs, both inside and out, in no time at all. My boy's a genius.




Sweet, sleepy guy




Napping with his new sis on our bed. Genius, I tell you!




Mom, we're trying to sleep here. Yesterday was a really, really long day. Can you stop with the flashy thing, already?




Yes, dear, I'll stop - for now. Yep, yesterday was a long day. We didn't get in until 1:00am this morning. When we got home, DH brought Chloe outside for introductions. She was so excited to see and meet Tip, she didn't really care that I was back home :P . Introductions went beautifully, including the cats. He's not too sure about this "snow" stuff - his feet seem to get cold pretty quick, so we'll be booting him up a lot sooner than we do Chloe - but otherwise he seems to be enjoying himself. And we love him to pieces!

While he's most definitely genius material, and while I'm sure Mensa accepts members with eccentricities (they have to, they're geniuses, right?), I don't think eating cat poo is an oddity they'd welcome into their ranks.


More genius activity update: In addition to the above, he 1. figured out the sofa the first night 2. understands that the fridge is where all the REALLY good stuff lives - you should've seen his eyes light up the first time I opened the fridge door and he realized what was in there. He was sure he'd hit the mother lode :lol 3. figured out that if he lays down and waits, he'll get a treat or a bit of whatever I'm cooking.


Yes, I'm impressed with my boy. We had a housefull yesterday, and though he and Chloe were crated for the main part of dinner, they both came out for dessert and family time afterwards. He was sweet and gentle with the kids and babies (they were just fascinated by him - couldn't stop petting him), and friendly with everyone else. And he likes pie.
