Our first winter with Pippin, in photos
An early morning run on the 22nd of December, 2023. It was the first time Pippin was allowed off-leash in a woodsy, unfenced area and the first time Leif and I realized how fast Pippin could run, even through relatively dense and icy undergrowth. Beautiful to watch, if nerve-wracking in the moment because I quickly realised while taking this photo that I had not proofed his recall for this environment at all. (Photo also shared on Instagram)

I took thousands and thousands of pictures of Pip this winter. Some of them are so cute, they really deserve their own post, especially as puppyhood is such a fleeting whirlwind of a time, you barely register the cuteness until it's past. (I do recommend looking at this post from a larger screen than a smartphone, if you can!)

All of these photos were taken with my iPhone 12, unfortunately the old adage "the best camera is the one you keep on you" keeps being all too true.
