Hot and tired

I am hot and tired. Master is hot and grumpy. It is all mistress's fault.

I am panting all the time. I hardly have enough energy to bark at the cats. OK that one isn't true. I went ballistic this morning when one went on MY ROOF.

Look, I can't even stand on my steps without falling asleep.

Thanks to those of you who have voted in my poll.

But not enough of you have said mistress is a wimp. We all know she is.

And she forget to say that you have to read La Cucaracha story to make your decision.

Next I can do a poll about how silly she is. Unless she did it on purpose, of course - not linking the poll to the story. So you wouldn't know why I thought she was a wimp.

I think the sun has addled my brain. Pufff.

PippaDog! Rocky aka Rockstar here in Washington DC. We were reading Guinness and Shiloh's blog about Misty dreaming of Pippa. You are a smart dog! Speaking of dreams, I must go check out the sofa.... -Rocky

Even though Momma would not read us the La Cucaracha story (she HATES bugs), we still think Mistress is not a wimp. She might be silly but she is not wimp.

We told Granma that we had a boyfrind in Spain and she laughed so hard she almost fell down. But we still love her anyway.

Hi, Pippa.
Your Mistress is not a wimp. Cucarachas are simply disgusting (according to my mom).
I think that we doggies simply have a different perspective!
Have a nice weekend

fee said...

dear pippa, u need some skreems, nice frozen skreems!

hope u get some this weekend!


Blue said...

Poor hot Pippa, but I do think you're being very hard on your mistress. I've voted a deffinate NO to wimp question. Well, have tried too, silly thing came back - "Cannot process request" - will try again later....

Kate, really sorry to hear wrist is still troubling you so. These things take such a long time to heal.
Fell, no actually was pushed in an attempted mugging & broke bones in my hand, TY my left, but was incappacitated for seemingly months - still get a twinge if I miss use it.

Have a good week-end. Do send a little more of your sunshine our way, as overcast this morning.

Pats & best wishes

Floss & Jez said...

we were just joking, please dont get mad


Pippa how can you call your mistress a wimp when you won't even go into the bathroom? Mom says Pot and kettle springs to mind,don't ask us what it means (apparently it's a human saying- no woofprende). Mom says Katherine is not a wimp, she understands completely.
We think your mistress a wimp but don't tell Mom

We are very hot here too, dear Pippa. We are in a heat wave, so we don't get to play outside very often. Mom & Dad have been sleepin in the living room with the air conditioning because it's too hot in their room. We all pile on the air mattress and have a camp out in the living room.

wally said...

Pippa, the photo of you sleeping while standing is fantastic! It is mighty hot and humid here, too. It makes the apes grumpy, it makes me grumpy, it's awful. I heard a rumor, though, that we are going to get some I Scream later. TASTY! You should bother your apes to make you frosty paws or fetch you some ice cream.


ps. I just ate a chilled peach which was lovely. I get in trouble for not chewing, too. The apes will never understand us.

pps. Ethel thinks you're lovely even when you're hot and bothered. Maybe especially when you are.

Hi Pippa! Princess has to live as the only female among males and she says you better be nicer to your mom or she'll swim over there and do her Xena routine on you! (see Gooberstan's video for the gory details :) Although she can't understand why a cockroach would scare your mom. Not that any of us have ever seen one. But we think insects are crunchy and delicious. Not much different than snatching a moving treat! Tell your mom to eat them!

We know what you mean about the heat! We can't stop running around but our dad makes us come in when our tongues get too big.

The Husky in the Window said...

Oh Pippa, ask her for a bowl of ice. That's fun to eat and play in. It was hot here too. I think we all need a vacation to someplace cold.
Have cool dreams. MayaMarie

ToFFee said...

and I thought the heat wave is only here in the Middle East..

I love to lick at ice.. my dad would freeze plastic bagged ice and I licked and licked on them..

mainly 5 minutes outside is enough for me to get suffocated.. or heat stroked..


HHHHarry said...

Hi Pippa,
I don't think your mistress is a wimp, but my mum says cos it's her PC she has rights over votes, and she has voted a definite NO, so she must be a wimp too.

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Reading your entry made us hot and tired. Maybe we need to get some more Frosty Paws to cool down. We were going to vote that your mom is a wimp but Mom beat us to it and voted NO. Mom says she's not going to call someone else a wimp for being the same way she is. Humans!

How did you get the DWB news to show in a window?

Dog lover said...

Hi PippaDoggy!

It's very hot in Asia, too.

Maybe you can be nice to your mistress and ask her for a little doggy size pool. Or else ask master to take you swimming.

Stay cool!

Ugh, it's SO hot here too. I'm probably gonna just pack up and head to Alaska. The humans can stay here and sweat.

Frasypoo said...

Hi Pippa
That was a funny picture of you standing and sleeping!Its the lazy afternoon sun that does us in !

Ferndoggle said...

Pippa don't melt!! It is so hot here too we're waiting for rain. I think all of my drool has dried up from panting so much!!


Johann The Dog said...

Woo, we sooo understand hot! It's 95 and humid here today. Not fun! But we got homemade frosty paws to make it all better. You need those too!

Woof, Johann

Freda said...

Hey Pippas,

Sorry you were so hots. It was 1,2 1,2 102° here Saturdays. I now have your hot and colds link for Malaga on my magic typer. But I can't find Gibs. I know it's not Spain, but the UK didn't have it either. Will have to looks on a different site. We both will have abouts the same hots mañana.

You had some very nice barks about all our buddies that have crossed the Rainbow Bridge. They were greats.

Beware of those c-a-t-s. Even a c-a-t on your hot tin roofs? Arf! Arf!

I voted in your “Is mistress a wimp?” poll. From readin' the la cucaracha bark and my dads workin' at a zoo that had lots and lots of la cucarachas, you can guess how we voted.

Dad is feelin' betters and even painted this light. He hopes to start updatin' my barks soon. He better or no treats for him!!

Keep your cooools!

Hey pippa!
Thanks for dropping by my blog. It means a lot to me! *woof*

Momo :) said...

Hello and nice to meet you, Pippa! It's very hot in Toronto where I live but I've heard the heat has been crazy in Europe. Please don't melt...

Momo xoxo

Sophie Brador said...

Hey Pippa, I'm looking for a new home. My mom has abandoned me forever. Hot and grumpy doesn't sound so bad. I think I could cope. Can I come live with you?

Bella said...

Hi Pippa,
Sooo hot is not fun - isn't there a nice big Ocean there that you can go for a swim in to cool down?
It's cold & wintery here in Melbourne - I wish we could send some your way.
Ah now I get it the vote is about the cockroaches !! I think your mum is a wimp about it coz I like to chase bugs & crunch them up !!!
(Bella mum - no way am I voting yes)

Tasha & Eva said...

Are you OK? We miss you.


dog lover said...

Hi PippaDoggy!

I hope you are keeping cool.

I like your poll and think you should do one every month! Just wanted to tell you that. ;D

Those steps look nice and cool in the shade. What a perfect place for a nap.

Your mistress is a wimp just like my mommy, she screams over ants and spiders. Sometimes ants get stuck on my lips when I eat them and she cries when she has to take them off, hee hee!
