For the past few days a cloudy, gloomy weather system has been stalled over the east coast. It rained all day yesterday which meant that we had to tire Piper out indoors rather than in our soggy, muddy back yard. I took the opportunity to take a few indoor shots of Piper with my 50mm lens.
As part of Operation Exhaust the Puppy Matt and I introduced Piper to our second floor great room which has a big area rug and lots of natural light. Pipe typically slips and slides all over the tile floors downstairs so I think she really enjoyed the traction she was able to get on the upstairs rug. She transformed into a wild little maniac, diving into Bailey’s old toy bin to rummage around for the absolute noisiest, most annoying squeaky toy, then zooming back and forth across the room with it at breakneck speed. She’d then grow bored of that particular toy and go back to the bottomless bin for another squeaker and repeat the whole process over again. (Luckily Bailey had a ridiculous number of toys so Piper will be able to keep unearthing new toys for the foreseeable future!)
Here are a few of my favorite pics from yesterday. Keep in mind that Piper was only stopping for 2-3 second increments before zooming off to the other end of the room… that’s why she looks so devilish in a few of these! 🙂
As is becoming her nighttime routine, Piper is now stretched across my lap, making sure even while sleeping to keep one paw close enough to my keyboard to hit a stray button every now and then. I love this little pup! 🙂

I really enjoyed your photos. He looks so happy and you sound happy.
Thank you! After losing Bailey in January I now realize how uninspired I was all spring and summer… I hardly took any photos at all. It is wonderful to be able to enjoy Piper’s personality and puppy snuggles now. 🙂
