My den



First of all I want to thank every dog who voted in my poll, especially those of you (17 in fact) who said I should go for more girlfriends. I think this is a top idea and exactly what I shall do.

Three of you suggested I should stick to the ones who love me the most. Now although I don't have favourites, well not really, what dog can resist the girlfriends who are always loving and tell me how gorgeous I am? I am sure you all know who you are so I won't embarrass you by naming you, but you do have a special place in my heart, up there with buttered toast.

One silly dog said I should stop looking for any more. I think that must have been a wind-up. Another one said I should should go for one. How is a dog to choose one girlfriend out of so many beauties? Too difficult for me by far.

So I will report back when I get some acceptances. If I get some, I suppose.

Master and I went for a walk down the river bed, well the stream bed, last night. Mistress eventually turned up late as usual to take some photos.

Posing. Hello mistress, late again


The river bed changes every year, depending on the rain and how much water comes down from the mountains. So each year, the course becomes deeper, or wider, or shallower. Sometimes you can't get down.

Down the river bed


But one of our neighbours with a tractor has some land down there so he has flattened it out so he can drive his tractor up and down. He has a big black dog guarding his ground. He is chained up. I am glad I am not chained up at all or locked away. It was just as well he was chained up though as he was very big and had a loud bark. He wagged his tail nicely though so I tried to greet him the same way. Master was having none of it and dragged me off.

The big black dog


And now my den. This is my very favourite den at the moment. It is just down from my gate so I can see up the street while I am hiding. But no cats and dogs can see me. Even mistress struggled to find me for the photos. Can you see me sniffing? Mistress thinks I was smelling the jasmine. Master thinks I was smelling for cats. What do you think?

I like your den, Pippa. I'll have to see about fixing one up myself.

Roxie thinks you might have enough girlfriends but Sammy and Andy think you should get all of the girlfriends you can find!

Cool den! We think it is amazing that you can get back there. We have our magnolia trees to sit under but we can only see the backyard. Chase some cats for us!

You look very comfy...that's the kind of spot I would find to hide in too! I like closed-in places...they make me feel safe.

WOo woo, Kelsey Ann

Hi, Pippa!
I've told you that you can have as much girlfriends as you want! As long as they love you too!
I'd love to have a den like yours! Here I only have a small patio with concrete!

Good luck with the dating. If you take out a personal ad, definitely include at least one of these den pictures: you look very lovely, and I can't think of any right-minded girlfriend who would pass up a chance to snuggle there.

You are quite hidden in there. I say you were sniffing for cats. Cats are evil as we know.

MaxDex said...

WOW pippa

Ferndoggle said...

I think you can have as many girlfriends as you want...as long as I get to be one of them!

I think I'd like to snuggle up with you in your den! It looks so safe and warm.

Hello Our Handsome One! We think you are sniffing for cats. You can never trust those sneaky critters! Most keep a very good guard up. That indeed is a very fine den-hiding place you have. We would love to share it with you! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.

wally said...

I do love hiding in dens as well. I'm with you--not really fair to deprive the ladies of your affection. And Ethel's not a jealous girl so it's all cool. Um, but you do have to share Sophie! And Randi. Great minds really do think alike, eh?

wally.

ps. Chained dogs always make my ma ape sad. I have a huge scar on my neck from when I had an embedded chain back in my life before I rescued my ape. Total bummer.
