Pippa goes carbooting


Well everydog, Pippa is now an official marketdogtrader.

When master and mistress had unpacked all their goodies in GibFlat, they packed up the stuff left behind by the funny woman who lived there before.

And there were a few things that came from mistress's mummy's house that they didn't want.

So they decided we would all go off to the car boot sale with all the unwanted junk.

Mistress comes from a family of market traders (food and sweeties), so she felt like she was disappearing into her past. Master and his bro did it too for a while. Mistress was surprised that master was quite good at it.

Anyway, master packed the Landy and off we went.

When we got there, I lay outside with my water dish, supervising, natch.

When I figured they had the hang of it, and it got warm, I went under the Landy for a few snoozes.

They were too busy selling stuff for 50 cents an item - so no pix. But we made enough for five sacks of PippaDogBix.

It wasn't a fortune, but we spent the morning outside in the sun, met some nice people, and earned a few dogbix, so a good result.

Pippa the MarketDogTrader

PS Mistress wants to add another Gibpic. Here are some expensive new houses on a marina. Not just reclaimed land, but stuck in the middle of the sea.

Now mistress likes water, and she swims like a fish. But she would not live there. Oh, no.

Earning money for dog biscuits! You are so clever and have so many talents! We just have to hound (ha ha) Mom to buy them for us and hand them over. She is pretty stingy only gives them out one at a time.

You are quite the salesdog, Pippa! And you didn't have to do hardly any work. You sure live in a very lovely place! We really like the first picture of you in the previous post where you're showing your tongue!! Very cute! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.

I have serious "CAR BOOTING" to do myself, later this summer. Can I borrow you Pippa to help! My One True Love was a great asset on these occasions!
Thanks for holiday wishes. My blog will continue as I'm again traveling with lap-top! So up-dates daily....well, in between sunning, drinking etc etc!

Pats & best wishes

Pippa, Those houses look bizarre and monstrous out there in the water. Rather bizarre. What happens when a big wave comes in? Do they get their siding cleaned for free?

Ruby Bleu said...

Wow...you are so talented. But I better not let my Mom read this because she might make me start working for my snackies!!! My job is to only look cute!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Good job with the selling! Could you come and sell some things for us? I need biscuits. Always.

Those houses--dunno. I'm afraid of my backyard as it is.

Sounds like you had a successful car boot. I'm sure it ws your good looks that drew in the punters.

Car boots in GIB?? Holy poodles and there was me thinking it was an "old blighty" thing.

Good going on the bix though.

Maybe we can sell some of the Dogfather's old tat and buy chews...

Way to go Pippa - we should try that maybe, since dogmom has gotten so stingy with the biscuits lately. Yeah, she says it's cuz Gomer had surgery on his mouth... but we're not so sure about that.

What's up with the crazy humans putting their houses on the water like that?

Wuf Ya!

Nice job earning snack money! We're not going to tell Mom about this. We like being Dogs of Leisure!

Hi, Pippa.
I am sure your job as a supervisor went well, because they got enough money to buy food for you!
Those houses in the water look nice but scary at the same time! Even for me who loves water so much!
Have a nice day
