I'm Back ... and Pippin!

Wow!  I just realized that it has been almost a month since I posted.  Things have been very busy here on the Cove!  First I has held hostage by  my new loom for quite a while; weaving is totally addicting! (Photos coming soon, Laura :)  Then there were 80 pounds of tomatoes to be canned, an update/remodel of the garage pantry to make it more earthquake proof (post coming soon), planting the fall/winter garden (another post soon) and, most recently, traveling to Spokane to bring home our new puppy!

This is the photo I fell in love with when I saw it on the Silver Paw Cavachons blog.

Mike and I drove to Kristy's home in Spokane on Sunday to meet him ... it was love at first sight.  We named him Pippin (after one of the hobbits in Lord of the Rings).

Today he is exploring his new home ...

... getting to know his new best friend ...

... and just hangin' out with the rest of the pack.

I'll post about all the rest of the gardening and home keeping activities soon, but today I need to finish Pippin proofing the backyard (he's small enough to get through the fence).



  1. He's adorable, Deb! Glad you got your loom, too. : )

  2. Oh my! Pippin is absolutely adorable! Congratulations on your new family addition.

  3. What a cutie pie! Congrats on the new addition to your family!

  4. Little Pippin seems to fit perfectly into your family. I had a friend who used to weave - it is such a special form of artistic creativity - enjoy!

  5. So, you don't spoil your pups like we don't spoil ours! Hah! What a cute pile of dogs. Congrats on the new addition.
