Mom better type fast because the P-U-P-P-Y is S-L-E-E-P-I-N-G. (Maybe Mom should type quietly, too, huh?)
Yes, that's right. Puppy!!! The weather is supposed to get worse as the weekend starts, and Dad didn't feel like skiing today, so Mom and Dad decided to pick up my little sister Abby today instead of tomorrow. After some frantic preparations on Mom's part, we all (well, TaiChi stayed home, as she really HATES the car) piled into the Box on Wheels (not to be confused with the House on Wheels - the box on wheels is the Jeep) and drove to my very first home to pick up my little sister.
She is truly my sister because we have the same biological mother and father.
Here she is!

The fat-bottomed girl on our pit-stop on the drive home.
Our first snooter-to-snooter. (Mom has better pictures, but Abby came up to me! The little devil! But she's very respectful for a little squirt. Hopefully she'll stay that way!)
TaiChi, at the moment, couldn't care less one way or the other. (I guess that's what Bad Sports do, huh? Or maybe just OLD bad sports!)

Note from Fi's Mom: Fi is VERY excited about Abby, and Abby seems to be taking the sniffing and licking with aplomb. Actually, so far, everyone has been very mellow, although that may be that Fi and Abby are worn out from the drive. However, Fi and Abby both have tails wagging like crazy when they are checking each other out, and I think Abby has (for now at least) a good sense that TaiChi should be respected from afar. So, so far, so good. We'll keep you posted!
-Fiona, Abby and TaiChi
