Meet Piper!

March 10, 2015 {69/365} Meet Miss Piper! 
Her name reflects our interests and her own unique character:
  • FRENCH: Although I love "Coquette" and "Coco," she is also Eric's puppy and we want her name to be easy for everyone. There is, however, a French reference: Piper-Heidsieck Champagne to toast her bubbly personality!
  • TRAVEL: There are Piper GT sports cars (for Eric) and Piper aircraft to reflect our love of travel, and this puppy is fast!
  • SHOES/FASHION: Piperlimea subsidiary of Gap and Banana Republic, is a great place to shop for shoes and accessories. Piper is a pretty girl who has already discovered shopping!
  • NAUTICAL: A piper is a member of a ship's crew that pipes out different whistles to order "Hoist Away" or "Avast Hoisting", signaling the crew to raise sails. There were also whistles to announce that visitors were coming aboard or that there was a man overboard. Beagles are notorious for their "piping" (aka howling). 
I'm sure we'll be following our little Pied Piper as she discovers the world!
