Meet Piper The Pin!


Piper The Pin's Official Introduction!


 Hello all, Dana here and I want to officially introduce you to my new little sidnekick Piper the Pin! She’s a minpin just like Nunah, but she’s red instead of black. We drove 9.5hrs (4&1/4 each way) to pick her up from Washington Pennsylvania. We got her from a breeder named Nancy, she was very nice and sent me picture updates of Piper on a bi weekly basis via email all the way up until the week before we were set to pick her up. She was one of only two little female pups. Her sister was a real pistol, her name is Lily. We were very excited to finally be going to get her because of the many weeks waited for her to reach 12 weeks old so she could leave her mother and come home with us. We also got to get a gander at her father, and wow was he gorgeous. I have to say Nunah and Piper differ in a many ways, one being Nunah was of the bigger size, Piper is a toy so her max weight will be 8lbs, instead of Noons max weight of 15lbs. My noodle was a little chubster but as I always say, it was just more of her to love ❤️..I miss Noon terribly!! I know I’ll never replace her, and I’ll forever have her in my heart. We got Piper to fill that empty spot in our home that Noon filled. I have to say though Piper is so crazy full of energy and doesn’t sit still for a minute, she keeps my mind more than occupied so that I don’t have a second to think otherwise. Once we got her home we rolled up all of the oriental rugs from the living room and dining room, then we just put them in the garage. Then we got a puppy play-pen and placed it in the center of the two rooms, and lined the hardwood floors with pee pads. It’s great because she already knows to make on the pads, not the floor.

She does do funny things like look down at the paper with her tiny hiney hanging off the edge so she goes on the floor...lol, it’s so funny but at least I know she’s trying. We also go two baby gates to block the top of the steps and balcony railings. We have a split foyer so there’s an over hang at the top right side of the steps on the second floor, and that had to be covered so she wouldn’t have a fall risk. Then we had to puppy-proof the doggy door and ramp so she can go outside on her own to make once she gets a little bigger. Rob made the spaces in the fence border smaller so she can’t squeeze through, and also built a little wall on the one side of the ramp that leads from the porch down into the fenced in yard.  It to was a fall risk and I definitely didn’t want her falling off the ramp or porch. She is so dam tiny (only 3.2lbs) and her little legs are so small that she could hurt them very easily. When we went to pick her up Rob and I literally looked at one another with a surprised face when we saw how dam small she was. 


The other side of the ramp is up against the wall of the house, that way she can run up and down safely. She even got the hang of coming in and out of the dog house and doggy door. She so smart for a 12 month old, she already fetches toys and she has this little walking thing that she loves to do, she pops up on her two hind legs and just walks across the floor. She has great balance really good concentration for her age, so I’m hoping to teach her some fun and cool tricks. I was thinking about taking her to some training classes and seeing how that goes, I definitely plan on training her to be a service dog like Noon was. I can’t wait to share our life together and all of the fantastic adventures we go on. We have some fun photo shoots and adventures planned, not to mention some super cute mommy and me looks, y’all are gonna love it. If there’s anything that you would love to see us do, or a place you’d love to see us go feel free to share it below in the comments, we would love to know what you want to see!! 
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for allowing us to share it I lives with you!! πŸ’‹
