Ben, Pip and a Cheeky Monkey

I’ve got some big news to tell you… but first… look at what Ben got rid of!

Is this for real?! Did you really take it off or am I just dreaming? If so - don’t wake me up!
Ben

Yep, Ben got his lampshade off, and he was very happy about it, too. It had gotten all dirty and just a week after it was put on, I decided to take it off him. The sheer excitement on his face was plain to see, and he celebrated his freedom with a few laps of the farm.

But back to the big news (yes, even bigger that Ben getting his Cone of Doom off). I went to see the puppies again yesterday. They are now six weeks old and running around the yard like pros. They were so playful. This puppy was shy.

You scares me!

They were running in and out of the coal house, so they were a bit darker than usual.

I’m black. I eats the coal. *Nom, nom, nom…*
Puppy

There was one really bold puppy nicknamed ‘Monkey’. she ran towards me on the ground with gusto!

I see human!
Monkey

She was so sweet! I was really tempted to take her instead of my original choice. She was bold, ate my trousers and climbed onto my lap - who could resist?!
Monkey

There was only one problem, I just couldn’t resist Pip (who could, really?). I had to find her first, though, because two of the female puppies were very similar.

This wasn’t her.

But this was (the giant puppy next to Monkey):

That’s her, that’s my Pip…

…and here she is at home! (Didn’t see that coming, did ya?!)
Pip

Well, neither did I, to be honest - but it was a nice surprise! She even has some coal left on her nose.

I let her out for a little wander - here she is, being a natural poser:

And she even managed to climb up onto a step all by herself:

I’m in love already.
