Pippin’s First Day at Doggie School

September 20, 2010

Dear Fans,

Pippin started school today with a big bang – literally.  He saw what was happening inside the glass door and went crashing into it in an effort to get through it faster.  But his bravado was short-lived.  With puppies ranging from a lab and a husky, to a Dalmatian, he soon saw that his macho demeanor didn’t stop the bigger dogs from sitting on him, biting his ears and boxing with him.  Finally put in his place, he soon went after the Pomeranian, who was more his size.

It was hard for him to concentrate on his lessons, but he was one of the few who didn’t have a toileting accident, and when we heard about some of the problems others were having with their dogs (eating their poop so they wouldn’t get in trouble for doing it inside, or biting their owners) it began to feel like we’re pretty lucky to only have the problems of our thumbtack eating, cigarette smoking mascot.

Thanks for your interest in Pippin’s educational adventures.
Have a good weekend, everyone,



Pippin: The SCI Mascot

September 16, 2010

The White Plains office has a new mascot, Pippin, or Pip Perelstein… or Pipspeak! Pippin is named after the play Pippin, which happens to be Dan Perelstein’s musical debut.

Pippin is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and he definitely fits the typical temperament of the breed, “highly affectionate, playful, extremely patient and eager to please.”
