Jip

Finally, some photos of the new pup. He's turning out OK, if a lot more aloof than our other terriers ever were. He's also got a skin thing which looks as though may never go away. But he's a good boy!

Notice his intense concentration in this shot. He really couldn't care less about the mail I'm reading. If you look closely, you'll see I have a small dish of chocolate chips in my lap. That's the draw!



Isn't he a cutie?



He's got that terrier attitude, though. You can see, in this video Mary made, that he is stubborn about breaking eye contact. You do know not to lose a stare-down with your dog, right? Direct eye contact from a dog is a challenge, and, if you want to be the Alpha in your dog's pack, you'd better not give in on that one! He won't make long eye contact with John or me, but he and Mary are still working out that pecking order thing.
