Comments: Avongara Painted Lady a.k.a Pippi the unchallenged
undisputed house princess. It could be said that Pippi is a little
spoiled, but if you were being truthful, she is a lot spoiled. She has
a propensity to tell her owner when she should get up in the morning,
go to bed and how much lap time she is entitled too. It has been
confirmed that Pippi opens the refrigerator when she wants the treats
Pippi is a capped tri, or open faced tri. Her tri coat has clear
definite lines of demarcation, with bright intense rich colors. Her
head is pleasing with well set dark eyes and mascara. Pippi has a
correct scissor bite with full dentation. She has well placed hooded
ears that are somewhat small and mobile. Her neck is of adequate length
that flows into her shoulders, slightly fuller at the throat than the
shoulders. Topline is level, she is a little longer in back but not in
loin. Her tail is well set with a full tight curl. She presents and
over all balanced outline, with adequate angulation but front and rear.
She is wider in chest, clean coming, somewhat close in the rear, with a
smooth flowing gait, better than adequate reach and drive. Well let
down hocks. She has correct compact feet with well arched toes. Her
faults are that she is a little heavy in the front and shorter on leg
than what would be preferred.
Pippi is very aloof when presented with new situations or people.
She meets people on her own terms and she makes her own judgement on
whether or not she will honor someone with her attention. Once that
judgement has been made she is extremely affectionate. Pippi displays
the typical African attention to detail when investigating new areas.
She is accepting of new animals including strange dogs, very mothering
of puppies. Pippi has an insatiable curiosity and anything everything
must be throughly investigated.
