|Okay, Yip is my character and this is my website, so I have taken
the liberty of starting at the far end of the alphabet.|
This is Kevin's interpretation of Yip's original description, which does say that the little dog has a whistle attached to his collar, but I had kind of visualized it as a bit more accessible than what is shown here... :P
You may ask why a whistle? (Go ahead, ask already!) Simple. I had
noticed pretty early on that when you use the taxi service on Furry, the
message says you whistle for a taxi. There may be other places you have
to whistle for service as well, but I forgot.
|You should have seen a slightly different version of this twice already.
Young Yip seems to be playing obedience course with himself (The caption
says "Sit Yip"), or maybe this was one of the times when the
big mutt asked him to pose...
(Yes, I call him a mutt. It is not meant as an insult. Some of my best friends are mutts! In fact Yip's "conceptual mother" is a mutt...)
|Yip in one of his favourite places at the time, Under The Couch at
the Owlhaven Literary Lounge. I think. Personally I had pictured that
particular couch as a bit bigger than that, but...
Then again, look at those eyes. Maybe it's at Fenris and he just had a tequila and a couple of hugs too much?
|Finally a variant of the first picture, with Yip wearing a plain
collar rather than his usual with the gemstones.|
I know what you're going to say - that Kevin forgot to draw the gems. But I'm not going to say things like that about someone who is that much bigger than me! (Let's face it, when you're a young chihuahua almost everyone is bigger than you!)
NEW: Last winter (February 99) Kevin did make a drawing of Yip and New (who still had his old name then) together, but noone has scanned it yet (He sent me a photocopy though) so it isn't here or anywhere else. To give you an idea, the caption is "Yip makes the mistake of putting a leash on New_Dog_Around"...enough said! ;)
