Puppy, Claire

[Puppy] First Market, and more pics

Today, Claire got taken to the Fremont Sunday Market for the first time. She also met the Gypsy Trader folks (who gave me a flex-leash for her), and the Cookie Lady, and the Peet's folks (who came outside to say hello), and so on. It was a little much, 'cause the cars kind of scared her, but she was in a puppy-carry the whole time and was very friendly (though a little shy) with the people who came up to say hello. When she got home, we went and played in the yard a little bit, and then came inside to play, and now she's all tuckered out again and curled up in her place at the end of the couch.

I did take a few more pictures, in the yard and with her playing with her favorite toy in the world, her furry squeaky chew-raccoon. So there's about five new pictures on the end of http://www.noderunner.net/~sparks/gallery/claire

I also took two short movies of her playing with the raccoon, both about 4 megabytes in length and in Quicktime format. They can be found here and here.

technoshaman and jenkitty are about to head by to drop off some books, and will meet the puppy as a result. But right now, she's aaaall tuckered out still.


I looked over and saw Gypsy Trader's sign as I was headed out of your neighborhood, and wondered: what *is* that? I take it it's a cool place, given that you trade there, but in what, other than leashes?

Puppy that young, I'm surprised she doesn't sleep more.... she was pretty well flat. But very cute. :)
Gypsy Trader is a consignment shop. They have old books, unusual toys, tons of clothes, furniture, etc. They have the Gypsy Trader 'Java Cafe' and Home Improvement store just across the street, too, where there's more stuff and a little cafe. :)

The Gypsy Trader folks are dog people themselves; they used to breed German Shepherds, and still have two. One of the two, Mischka, is pretty much always in the store. :)
She's cute. But with those short legs, half the time it's hard to tell if she's standing or laying! :)
Your puppy should be registered as a deadly weapon for the UTTER CUTENESS that she presents! She's so adorable. The lost, forlorn look that she had exploring the living room. The FEROCITY that she shows chewing on the raccoon and the fact that she and Brent looks SO MUCH alike...hmm
scratch that last statement.

Congratulations Puppy-Mommie!
