Yesterday Flip went to the beauty parlor for her every other month foof and fluff. She didn't get bows this time but instead a sassy bandanna. I wasn't crazy about the colors but at least it has flowers on it. Above she is looking incredibly perky because I said, "Gogitthedeer!" These are magic words of action to Flippitty dippitty doo dah. She can be in a dead sleep, paws twitching and all and at the sound of these words she'll be at the door ready to persue any rats with hooves. She will even run out to the end of the lawn and bark, hop, and prance when there are no deer in sight. She aims to please but when she comes back realizing that there wasn't any deer there to begin with she can get a little pouty...
...Until you say the magic words... then she is off. She won't fall for a faked ball throw but she will go for imaginary deer every time. No need to worry about the real deer though. When she gets too close they turn around and chase her back into the yard. Nasty beasts!
