The draft

Here I am - back with a head again, although not much else. Seems mistress can only do one thing or the other, either a head and no body, or a headless body. Ah well.

Now everydog, escucha, listen carefully, because I am going to tell you something in confidence. I have been very silly. Not naughty or anything, but I have made a big mistake.

I have been drafted. I have joined the Army of Four. But I did not mean to do this. And of course, one of the reasons I have made this silly mistake is because there is a rather beautiful redhead over there called Amber.

Anyway what happened was that I had started visiting AoF (having seen the beautiful Amber), and they offered to update their list for any pups that weren't included. Well, I thought they meant the list on the sidebar of all their dogpals, so I wrote and said I would like to join the list.

But that wasn't what they meant at all. They were updating their list of pups recruited into the army. THE ARMY. And the next thing I knew, they had sent me their logo telling me I had been accepted and I could display the Army of Four sign on my blog. All the other pups are now getting MISSIONS that they have to complete.

Woe is me. I am a peaceable Pippadog who likes to do no more than eat toast for breakfast (along with everything else of course), bound on and off my sofa, sleep all day, and go on cat hunts with master.

So my dilemma is what do I do? Let them know it was all a mistake and ask if I can resign? But then I might be dishonourably discharged and Amber and all my other millions of girlfriends would not love me.

Should I desert? But if I do that and run away - I won't be able to keep up to my blog in case they come after me.

No, I think the best plan is to lay low, and hope they have forgotten about me and then I won't get an impossible mission.

Oh dear. Sometimes these girlfriends do cause me a few problems. Anyway, today I shall dream about Amber - if it hadn't been for her I wouldn't have signed up in the first place.

Paws crossed for me please every dog.

Guinness & Shiloh's Family said...

We are in the Ao4 too, darling Pippa, so don't be concerned. You can be our moral officer and cheer us all up with toasties. The missions are fun too. The white dogs have been working on under cover tactics and Guinness helps to keep the trrops calm, along with Amber. You will be a fine, and handsome, addition to the corps.

Kapp pack said...

We are Ao4 troopers too, I'll make sure you remain safe.

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

Tasha & Eva said...

Dearest Pippa, don't worry about being a Trooper in the AO4. Just report on things that you are doing, like you cat hunts! We would liket to go on a geo-catzing mission with you! That would be fun. We loved your headless wonder pics! Eva likes to lay with her head under the bed. Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.

Pacco de Mongrel said...

The Army of Four said...

Dear Pippa!
Hi Pippa it's me - Amber - and I just read your post! Oh, dear Pippa! Being a Trooper in the Ao4 is really, really fun because we all help each other and are never snarky or anything and we support each other and things like that! I agree with Tasha and Eva that your cat hunts are exactly the type of missions we are all about! And your geo-cat-ching. We've got your 6, sweet Pippa! Fear not! Guinness and I will help you along!!!

OOOOh, will you get to wear a handsome uniform?

~ChaChi Lu who is a sucker for the guys in uniform! *wink*

Blue said...

Hi Pippa!
Joining the Army of 4 is probably better than Halloween pawtying...
At least no freaky costume, but you do miss riding my broomstick!
My own self-inflicted mission is to sneak in un-recognised... as no humans invited!

Sophie Brador said...

Pippa, I was calling you!!! I was calling you to say that you don't need to actually be in the army. You can be an entertainer, like me. I entertain the troops. That way, I'm not entirely off-side, but I don't have to complete any missions either, other than being entertaining once in a while. You want to join my AO4 show? We haven't toured yet, but maybe one day.


Bama said...

Ohwoo, Pippadear. Not to worry, we're in the army too, and so far we've been having a TON of fun trying to complete our mission. Check out our latest post. We're really "digging" being in the army, and it's grrreat knowing there are so many pups out there watching each others "sixes".

Hey Pippas,

No heads, no bodys. That's skerdys and just in times for Hallowsween.



Lorenza said...

Hola Pippa
Ya ves las cosas que haces por amor a tus novias??
Yo se que el Ao4 es divertido. No son misiones de guerra. Quiza puedas ser el cocinero de las tropas?? Seguro tus tostadas les encantaran!!

River said...

You never know the army might be kinda fun - depending on what the missions are of course!!



Hi Pippa,
Is something wrong with your mummy's camera? We seem to be getting you in bits and pieces!! Hope all is well.
Jazz and Dixie

Gus said...

Oh Pippa, do join! Our missions are fun.

I'm better now, so I can't wait for the next mission.

It sounds like it is going to work out splendidly for everyone! But, good luck anyway!

Johann The Dog said...

BOL! You joined the Army for a girl! Bet that's not the first time that has happened! You are soooooo funny. Maybe you could bring peace to everypup's world - I say stay in and give it a go.

Woofs, Johann

Suki & Joey said...

Ooooh, you're in trouble, Pippa! Just kidding! From what I have seen, the AO4 looks pretty cool, and maybe Amber will see the courageous side of you and love you even more ;)

Puggy kisses

hahaha... Pippa is in trouble. :) No, no I am just kidding! Just tell them that there was a misunderstanding so you can resign.

Frasier said...

Women will get you into trouble one way or the other!!!

wally said...

Tell them you're in the Special Forces, engaged in Project Yummus, Toast and Curries.

Plus, my sissy doesn't want to be a war widow.


Bama said...

Hi again Pippadear,
We were just clearing out some of our old emails mom let build up, and came across a comment you left clear back on the 10th about being "too late to be interviewed". I just can't imagine how we missed this comment, but it's NEVER too late, we'll be glad to interview you, if you still want to, and we girls will try hard to think up some very good questions for you. Just let us know if you're still interested,
Bama & Mikki
(the boys say "hi" but they're not sending you kisses, silly boys)

Ferndoggle said...

Oh we're all in the Army! Some of the missions involve hunting down sources of meat! You definitely should stay.
