Pippin makes a great photographer's dog * we both like it best when he can be off leash but when he's on leash he's pretty good about waiting while i take a picture * he seems to understand that pulling my arm leads to an upset mommy & nobody likes an upset mommy so he sits down to wait ...most of the time * of course it's his motion that provides almost half of my inspiration *

our home beach, destination of our easiest walk out across the headlands, is junk beach -- or glass beach, depending upon whom you ask * after years of calling it junk beach my sister & i discovered that our parents had a name for it too * (i remember another place we were proud to name on our own, the lovely Silver Creek in Oregon * turned out we got that one right so i guess we musta heard it before naming it but that didn't make the name any less perfect) * the water on some days is so crystal clear that i've resolved to get a wetsuit so i can get in there with him * some days it's still too but those rocks & those waves can get mean at the drop of a hat (that ocean was named on a rare day 'cause it ain't pacific) * not to mention the shark attack just up the coast a bit -- a guy out 100 feet from shore, diving for abalone in 15 feet of water...

nothing sends off a day in the proper way like a little game of hurtle, maybe a couple rounds of body slam...

ways that Pippin is like the hobbit:
* he's always concerned about second breakfast
* he has big hairy feet
* he seldom wears shoes (he has been known to wear a slipper on his nose)
* he's a total fool (but an honest fool)
* he's got a goofy loveable face
* he's intensely loyal but also makes new friends everywhere he goes
* he likes to go walking, but home is best of all
* he loves to sleep in a nice soft bed
* his speech is very rustic
* he squeals like a girl (just like Billy/Pippin does several times in the movies

ways that Pippin is not like the hobbit:
* he doesn't really smoke too much, Pip
* he doesn't like beer either
* he swims like he was bred for it (funny, that)
* he'll never be able to have 13 babies (in fairness, that was Sam -- as far as i've read Pippin only had the one he named Faramir)
* he's missing his Merry
* he makes a lot of noise walking through the woods
* he doesn't sing (well, not exactly)
