That doggy in the window

Ruff Ruff.

When mistress goes shopping to the Moroccan man up the back from my kennelflat she never takes me.

I think that is a shame as I would like to go shopping, she brings back tasty olives and Moroccan bread and all sorts of other yummies.

And when she walks up Town Range to the shop, she often sees this doggy in the window. I think we could be friends.

Mistress usually says "Hola perro'" or "Hola chico". Sometimes she adds "Eres muy guapo". He is a Gibraltarian dog so mistress speaks to him in llanito/español. He has barked back at her a few times, but she isn't sure whether he is really barking at her because he recognises her now, or whether he is barking at other people walking past.

I think she should take me so I could go and bark at him, or rub pink noses or something. I am sure there would be nice cats up the back street too.

Poll results

Thank you very much to every dog who voted in my poll "Does Lava look like me?"

Nearly half of you said "sort of" with ten votes. Then six said "I have a longer pointy nose (and it's pink)", hmmmmm. And four said yes, and two said no. I think I will go with the ones who said "sort of" as it is a nice sitting-on-the-fence result.


I wanted to add something about girlfriends but Misery Mistress has put her foot down saying I mentioned something in the last post, and I am just not allowed to talk about them in every post. Pooh. I don't see why not, there are so many of them I need to talk about them in every post or I wouldn't get round to mentioning them all would I?

Perhaps I should choose a girlfriend for each post. At the bottom of every post I could write which special girlfriend I am dreaming about. And that means I could talk about at least one girlfriend each post. Or would the others get jealous? What do you think? That can be my new poll. Fix my poll mistress.

Edited to add: mistress is improving - she has made it a multiple choice poll, so you also get the chance to say I have too many girlfriends. Actually that is not such a good idea. Why did mistress add that? Please don't tick that box.

dear pippa, hey i love where you live! it looks really quaint and i'm sure it is suitably peppered with nice eating places and friendly doggies.

how is the poll doing so far? i can just see every one of your many girlfriends ticking that last box, so be prepared for the results. don't bode well, my friend. misery m is getting too smart for her own good!

Hi Pippa dog!

My mama is thinking about visiting Europe next spring and especially Spain. Heard you live in those next of the woods... do you think that it will be a nice time to visit... before the bus loads of tourists arrive? Also I just notice omelets are your fav. food... MINE too! Handsome doggins think alike!

Pippa, I'm sorry about the whole Patti Smith thing, but your mistress really has to come back and see the video. She reads Prelude to Howl, which is pretty great in a church, and then plays the clarinet. It's pretty good. I am truly very sorry to have subjected you to all this, although Chrissy Hynde is tres, tres cool!!!! And you can use it all as leverage for girlfriend postings. Let your mistress listen to Chrissy or Patti in exchange for girlfriend updates. Not a bad deal, I think.

Pippa, you know a boy can NEVER have enough girlfriends... especially a boy as handsome as you.

That was flattery by the way .... did it work?

Snogs from the dogs (but especially Meg & Cleo)

Momo :) said...

Pippa!! We want to try those olives, moroccan bread and other morrocan yummy things!!!

Do you think you'll meet up with that white doggie? We've never seen Gibraltarian dog. He's a bootiful doggie!

Momo xoxo

Hi Pippa! I think since it's YOUR blog, you should be able to blog about whatever your handsome heart desires.
That white doggy looks sweet! I'd love to meet him. I'm a very friendly girl and I love to make friends with everypuppy I meet but not everypuppy speaks Siberian and so when I say "rooooo!" to them, a lot of them get scared! And then like Dirk the 120-pound Black Lab hid behind his mama and I said "rooo!" and he got scared again and somehow only other Siberians seem to understand me! Except for Zim's friend Ralph who moved away. He didn't mind that I like to say "roooo" and we were friends, too. Zim said maybe I talk too much but I don't think so, do you?
PS: Yes! We're putting you on the list to be a Trooper in the Ao4, OK? Shoot us an email at SibeTracker at Yahoo dot com -- you know what I mean, right? We'll send you the cool code for your side bar!

Jackson said...

Hey pal, I didn't think it was possible for a dog to have TOO MANY girlfriends until I met you! How are you going to keep them all sweet? You're going to have your work cut out for you pal! J x

wally said...

We need to plan a shopping trip there so we can visit that shop and that muy guapo dog.


ps. I am very sad about Buko, too. And very sad for his human who is the greatest thing to ever happen to dogs. He loves all his dogs--no, all dogs--so much.

Guinness & Shiloh's Family said...

Darling Pippa, thank you for reminding me of my forgetfulness. Of course I want to interview YOU, my handsome boyfurrriend!

Now, let me see, hmmmmm

1. Darling Handsome Pippa, we have heard how you master & mistress found you and took you in, but how did you get you very interesting name?

2. How did you become boyfurrriend to so very many grrrls?

3. If you could, how would you come across the big ocean to be with me and snuggle noses?

4. If you had to choose, would you rather have all of the grrrlfriends that you want, or all of the toast that you want?

Is there such a thing as a toasty grrlfriend?

wally said...

I voted for you to talk about your girlfriends. You do NOT have too many! It would not be fair to the ladies of the world for you to 1) limit yourself to just one (or one dozen) 2) stop heaping your bloglove on them.


Frasier said...

If you blogged about all your GF' s you would be blogging every hour!!!

Lorenza said...

Hola Pippa.
Frasier tiene razon. Si hablas de todas tus novias, no terminarias nunca! Pero, esta bien, te queremos tanto que puedes hacerlo!
Ojala que puedas ir a saludar a ese simpatico perrito! Seguro serian amigos!

Bama said...

Don't worry Pippa dear, we're honored to be on the long list of grrrrlfriends. We dont' mind sharing, and you're much to handsome to keep to ourselves.
Bama & Mik

Hey Pippa - there's no such thing as too many girlfriends!


Simba said...

What a great place to go shopping. I think you should go along too.

Max said...

hey pippa, I am a boy too and I am growing. Can you please leave me some girls so they can be my girlfriends next time? please?

Johann The Dog said...

I think your Mum should take you with. Getting out is good for the soul and nose! Woofs, Johann

Ferndoggle said...

I never get to go along with Mom on her shopping adventures. It's totally not fair.

I like hearing about all of your girlfriends...esp b/c I'm one of them!!


Balboa & Mommy said...

this is YOUR Blog and you should talk about whatever you want!!!!!! I'd love to hear about a girlfriend each post.

ROSSI said...

And am bet that doggie can be ur friend too..


Tasha & Eva said...

Pippa, you should be able to go with Mistress every time! Its not fair that you are left out. We think that Mistress is just jealous that you have so many girlfriends. We don't mind that you do! Have her take you shopping next time and don't take no for an answer!! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.

Kapp pack said...

That is so not nice that you don't get to go along with your mistress. I don't mind how many girlfriends you have as long as you don't forget about me!

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann
