An avid squeaky toy collector, Pippa protects dPost and dStudio from everything and anything - including solar flares and tiger attacks. How do we know? Well, we haven’t seen any tigers around here lately. Hailing from Hungary, Pippa is an international wonderdog who loves travel, hiding tennis balls under couches and laying on the ground. If Bugs Bunny were a dog, he'd surely be Ms. Pippa Marie.
