Kate’s Favorite Pics

All my favorite photos have Piper in them, though she doesn’t cooperate for the camera. Some dogs are camera hogs, but Piper is definitely not one of them. I think she honestly doesn’t know what the fuss is about, and unless a treat is involved, really couldn’t care less.

If Piper’s guilty look doesn’t give away the fact she’s been digging in the yard, the dirt mustache she’s sporting does.

My husband took advantage of the fine weather to go flying. Piper came to see us off.
