This is Tippy. She looks bored, possibly unhappy, but nothing could be further from the truth. Tippy lives in Visalia, California at a big beautiful old Victorian farmhouse. Next to the house, is a gigantic barn and another old Victorian house that are loaded up to the rafters with antiques for sale to the public.
Tippy is the Official Greeter; a job she excels at. She’s not allowed in the shop inside the old house. Her wagging tail is a hazard. She IS welcome in the barn, which is full of larger pieces and architectural antiques and other such treasures that cannot be beaten to bits by a wagging tail. Tippy was seen on several occasions trotting up to a customer who was down near the floor to inspect a piece and lavishing them with kisses! I had to wait until she was distracted before I could point the camera at her. Every time she saw me in my wanderings on the grounds, she would come along and assist me. It was difficult to get a shot with her nose right up in the camera!
She caught me out there in the yard pointing the camera at her. I think she’s posing for me.
