At just four inches tall, four-month-old Pip is no larger than a can of Coke and could very well fit inside a gravy boat. She only weighs a pound and four ounces, about as heavy as a bag of sugar. When she needs to go on walks, she doesn’t.
Previously, comedian Jeff Wysaski trolled a local bookstore by replacing genre labels with his own hilarious signs. Now he’s back, and this time he’s hitting up the pet shop.
