Toalla dog

We, ok, not we at all, but mistress has been taking a break. Myself I think it would have been helpful if she had posted up that she was going to take a break, not that she has taken one. You can all work that out because we have not posted for a week.

And now she wants to say that we are having another break. WHY? Because she has some stuffs to do in Spain and she can't promise to write up every few days.

So first off, Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays (depending on your preference) to our pals, and a very Happy New Year to all of you.

We have tried to send our email cards to everyone who has sent to us and all the ones who are on our immediate list, but we keep getting some "can't send" messages back. We will have another go before 25 Dec. After all it is raining here so what else does mistress have to do?

Thank you to everydog who has sent us cards, old pals (well not in terms of years) and new ones too. I have got some adorable cards from some of my girlfriends and just can not decide which cards I like the most. I think I like all of them equally. I am not going to list them because I am bound to miss out some girlfriend and then I will get myself into trouble again.

Which brings me onto my Christmas/New Year poll. I have very sadly noticed that a lot of my girlfriends are happy to be sort-of girlfriends but they really want a special boyfriend of their own. Master says women are like this. I thought it was nice to be friendly to every beautiful dog, but he tells me life doesn't work like that.

So, I have been thinking. Should I stop looking for more girlfriends? Should I ask just one beauty to be my very special girlfriend? (like Charlie and Freda are juntos) And how on earth would I choose? Or should I go for the ones that love me the most, and still be pals with the others, but sort of have a more discrete list?

What a difficult one. Any views, pals and girlfriends? Please have a look at my new poll, top right, and it is a multiple poll by the way - so you can answer yes to all of them if you really want although I am not sure that would be helpful.

I said earlier it was raining. It has rained for three days. I DO NOT LIKE TO GO OUT IN THE RAIN. I hope I have made that one clear. Nor, when I come in, soaking wet, do I like to be dressed up like Toalla Perro, or Toalla Dog. Mistress thinks this is witty because it sounds like Koala Bear. Do I look as though I think this is witty? For any pups who don't speak Spanish, toalla is Spanish for towel.

Mistress, I am not Koala Bear, Toalla Bear

Or even Toalla Perro or Toalla Dog

Just go away - Pippa the Headless Wonder again

If I get chance, I will get mistress to post a slightly more festive photo over the holiday season than Toalla Pippa.

Have great toallaless holidays.

Master and I - happily, without toallas

And today I have to dream of Sophie La Flirtador because she has been poorly, and even though I know she is a terrible flirt, I think she is beautiful and I love her lots. Get well Sophs. But don't laugh at my toalla pictures. Please.


Edited to correct spelling of toalla. Thanks Lorenza. Silly mistress. Dresses me up and can't even spell right.


Sophie Brador said...

Oh Pippa, I would never laugh at you. Only a dog worthy of my heart (and you can have my liver too, if you want it) would stand to be photographed with a toala. I think you are stunning and brave. Thanks for dreaming about me.

Your Flirtador,


p.s. Those humans know nothing. I think you should have a whole bunch of girlfriends, unless there is more food involved with having just one.

Randi said...

Hello Dear Darling Pippa,

I, too, am agreement with Ms. La Flirtador...because there are so many of us beautiful girls who want to be able be a girlfriend to the handsome Pippa dog...So you musn't listen to the humans...because all doggies sniff butts & I know that kind of behavior usually gets humans in trouble..not us superior pooches...

Don't choose just one, Pippa...we'd all like to share you.

Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Love & Licks,

ps...You look very sweet in the towels...

Buko (in spirit), Jackson, and Narra said...

Hello, Pippa!
Narra finds you quite fetching in your toala. And like the other girls, she feels that sharing indicates a higher level of evolution. We say go for it--the world awaits you, handsome Pippa!

Holiday Cheers!

Hi Friends

We saw your posts about Thrawn and wanted to tell you please don't worry about it! Chances are Mom hit the wrong button during those few days, she wasn't thinking clearly. We dearly appreciate your friendship, just can't tell you enough.

Lorenza said...

hey, this spanish "toalla" somehow made it to singapore! a towel's been a toalla for the loooooongest time, used by some chinese from different dialect groups, as well as the malays!

and merry christmas, pippa! may the day be filled with love, peace and much feasting for you and your family! (and perhaps many girlfriends, still!)


Harry said...

A very happy Christmas to you all!

Gus and Louie said...

Yepper rain is bad but Louie doesn't think so. I guess being a puppy he just doesn't have any sense!!!
We love the picture of you all wrapped up in your towel.. That looks so cozy!!
Merry Christmas...Gus and Louie

Charlie said...

Merry Christmas, Pippa. I say 'go for as many girlfriends as possible'!

Tasha & Eva said...

Darling Pippa,
We've been thinking about your issue. One hand, we'd like you to limit yourself to two girlfriends but on the other hand, we see the advantage of having a lot of girlfriends. Hmmm. we're going to vote for many as you want. We just want dear Pippa to be happy and loved by all.


P.S. We received your lovely e-card. We've asked the Momma to print and frame it for us.


Merry Christmas Pippa. Hope you have a wonderful day today. By the way the toalla is quite fetching!
Jazz and Dixie

The Army of Four said...

Merry Christmas, Pippa!
I don't mind the rain itself, I just don't like getting my feety-feet wet. Storm said I don't make any sense, but I know what I mean!
PS: Girlfriends are a touchy thing. Just don't hurt Ammy's feelings!

PerfectTosca said...

Dear Pippa, I wish you and your humans a very Merry Christmas and wonderful health and happiness in the New Year. I woud also like to put in an application to be one of your girlfriends. Do you like Big Girls?

The Husky in the Window said...

Oh Pippa, you are too much with all these girlfriends. You remind me of that james bond guy, so many girls to choose from.

Merry Chritmas to you and your family.

MayaMarie, Missy and Bella

Hope you had a Merry Christmas. I don't like to get my paws wet either! We could curl up and stay dry together.

WOo woo, Kelsey Ann

Jackson said...

Hey Pips, Hope you're having a great festive season. As to the girlfriends question; have you ever thought about branching out and having boyfriends too? That way you could keep EVERYDOG happy. It seems to work for Simba & Boo Casanova. I suppose it might be hard work keeping up with them all though. Sometimes it's easier just being single! J x

Marvin - Braveheart Hound said...

We are severely belated with our Christmas Wishes Pippa!

But here goes, Happy Christmas, and a Guid New Year as they say here in Bonnie Scotland!

I hope you had a wonderful time.

love and many licks, Marvin in Rainy Scotland !!!!!!

wally said...

We have been thinking about poor Sophie, too. I think our healing vibes helped. I see no problem with spreading the love. Go for it, my friend!


ps. ssssssmooch! you were under the mistletoe!!!!! -ETHEL!

Freda said...
