Another fun thing for me about visiting Block Island was that I got to spend time with my furry niece, Pippa Middleton Pug. She is a picture-perfect little gal, much smaller than my Tulip, but with pug attitude. She has a bark that sounds like a sneeze, a scream she saves for enclosed spaces such as the car, and a gift for mischief. But she is also affectionate and friendly, and she put up with a lot of cuddles from Owen.
Owen thinks all pugs are named Pippa Middleton (despite the many pictures in our house of his late sister, Tulip). I predict this might cause some confusion in the future. J
