Hold on. Don't look away. I know it's tough. Sometimes it feels like it's going to ruin your eyeballs for any future episodes of cuteness but remember, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Pippa doesn't know the power she holds.
When she was first brought in, she was a filthy, matte covered mop who was in such a state of discomfort that all her long knotted and tangled fur had to be shaved off. It revealed a shy, saucer eyed little Shih Tzu, unsure of the world and unsure of the people in it.
I know we risk some anguished chest pounding here but Pippa has already been adopted, another one snatched up on Sunday before I had a chance to post any photos of her because, well, if you think she's a doll here, you shoulda seen her in real life all defenseless and wanting to be held and whatnot. It was probably all just an act but what an act.
