A Lil Peep Visits

I love people.  That's one of the reasons I started blogging.  People are fascinating creatures.  I like watching them.  They think they are in charge of us.  We animals know that truly it is WE who are the rulers of all....

Yesterday, one of the littlest peeps I know needed a keeper for the day, so this little guy arrived - (still in his jammies) at the crack of dawn.  This lil guy was only staying for the day, yet he showed up with SO much stuff, I thought for a minute, he was MOVING in.  His Dad first unloaded a stroller from the back of the pick-up and placed it by the outside entry.  Then he carried the lil guy in his arms to my mom and we all said our proper Good Mornings (Mine is just a tad barkier than theirs)  Then this Dad made two more trips to the truck and back with a huge duffle bag and a special seat for the car.  That contraption alone barely fit through the door!  With a kiss for luck, this lil peep's Dad was on his way to a very important job.

                  It was at that exact moment that I realized I had my work cut out for the day. 

The lil guy needed fuel for the day, so Mom got him sat up at the table and gave him some breakfast.  I had to get up close and see what this peep was getting to eat. 

We just wanted to be closer to each other, so Mom put me up on the chair right next to lil Peep.
We both thought THAT was very necessary.

Just after breakfast, I thought we both needed a game to break the ice, so to speak...

He took it a little more seriously than I did at first, but within moments, I had him smiling and laughing at our lil Tug of War

Then...Mom said we had to get ready for the day and we proceeded to get clothes and other important items out of that duffle bag.  Mainly Diapers and Wipes.
Good thing this lil Guy's Dad brought a lot of those.  We would find later in the day that more and more of those items would be mandatory.

Then I mostly was entertained by this peep's antics. 

Hey-those are MOM's shoes, you silly!

Mom thankfully decided after a little while we needed a little fresh air, so we headed out for walk #1.

I got a lil ride just for fun!

This lil guy needed to eat again and after that I hopped onto his duffle bag.  Lil Peep thought that was pretty funny and came over, whispered some secrets and then I got me some Toddler Hugs. 

Lil Peep then went down for a nap.  I  GET that.  Scrappy Truth, though.  I missed him. 

After he woke, we played more games.  Mostly I fetched.  He threw.  That made him giggle.

Following another clothing and diaper change, we ventured out for walk #2

Just look at Lil Peep's cute Lil Boots

His Mom showed up a lil after this and loaded all of his stuff into her car.  (He was pretty excited when she showed up at the door.)  I wagged for him.  Moms are just the best.

What a great day! Lil Peeps are amazing.   They live in the moment and their emotions are so very raw.  I love how the world looks through their eyes.  All new.  All wondrous
 Ever curious.  Lil Peeps just breathe Happiness


  1. What a great day you had with that little guy! I love your walk together!

  2. That sounds like a fun day. Did the little peep share any of his foodables? I've heard they are good for dropping things on the floor.


  3. Sounds like a great day and you did such a good job helping to take care of that little guy. Just loved the pictures of you going for a walk.

  4. Scrappy, we bet you were pretty tired after that wonderful and busy day with the little peep. You were very nice to share your humans with him. But you know, he looks like he was a very nice little guy too.

  5. What a wonderful, fun host you were for the Lil Peep - sounds like you had a full day :).

  6. What a great day you had with your little peep! I love the look on little peeps face during your tug-o-war. LOL!

  7. Hehe, guess you sure had a fun day with that little peep! He is almost as cute as you, but then I just love Yorkies! ( I am part yorkie, schnorky actually).

  11. OMD OMD.. You did a WONDERFUL job of taking care of the little peeper. Just the right amount of EVERYTHING.

  12. A little buddy who appreciates food, naps and walks - sounds like you've found a soul mate, Scrappy :)

  13. We will miss little peep!

    How's your ear, by the way? Are they still goopy?

    Having little people to visit you is such a nice experience.... -.- I miss my nieces.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  14. Hey Scrappy! You did a great job of entertaining the little guy! How fun!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  15. I love it when little peeps visit us too!! They do bring a lot of stuff. And sometimes they like to play with my toys. Mommy has to make sure they don't put them in their mouth. Glad you had a great time with the little guy!

    Doggy Kisses,

  16. Chester loves little peeps but none come to visit. He is jealous :)

  17. So cute, Roxy likes SOME little peeps, as long as they don't pick her up.

  18. It's always fun when little peeps come over for a visit. My person saved some of my younger person's old toys so when my little peep friend comes over he doesn't have to bring so much stuff.

  19. How fun to get to spend the day with that little peep.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  20. Hey, it looks like you had a lot of fu with your lil Peep! Did you get extra treats? I do when there are little peeps over here!

  21. There are no little peeps here. I am too big. You are a really good little peep sitter though.

  22. Oh my Dog! This is such a wonderful little story (in both photos and words) that you shared today...I absolutely LOVE it! I hope to one day meet a little peep. You are a lucky dog!
    Talk to you soon...come by and visit me anytime sweetie!
    Your friend, Pixel
