My news

Here I am. Back on my finca. Lying at my gate.

We had a fine time driving up the coast in my Landy. I went to sleep in the back, it was nice and warm and sunny. When we stopped at the traffic lights at San Pedro Alcantara I had a little look to see if there was anything interesting - like cats - but there wasn't so I went back to sleep.

Just before master got home, we stopped for a nice walk by the sea. I think it was really so mistress could call at the supermarket.

I was very excited when we got home and I ran all round my house. Then I ran outside onto my terrace and ran up and down there a few times. Then I lay down at my gate. I am sure to see one of the horrid Marmalade family soon. Master and mistress think they are on the fifth or sixth generation of feral kittens by now.

Mistress has got some awards on her blog. Bloggers of the World, and Thinking Blogger. I think she should give them to ME. I am the one in this household who gets awards, not mistress for her stories about life in Spain and Gibraltar and Important Things whatever they may be. Who is interested in that? Does she have lots of dog pictures on? (although I do feature on the last post). No. Does she get as many comments as me? No. Give ME your awards mistress.

Remember the nice people who came to see us at Christmas? The woman sent some of her photos to mistress and said she could post them on our blogs. So here they are. Well, the ones with ME on. Because they are the only interesting ones.

There are only two days left to vote in my poll, and it looks as though nearly everypup thinks I need more girlfriends, so if you haven't voted yet, please put your paw on the button.

Finally, I am so sorry that one of my newest friends, Durango, has gone to the Rainbow Bridge. So this post is in his memory. Run free, little one. Dakota and Thrawn will be there for you.

Pippa. You are looking so handsome these days. Just look at your tucking your cute paws under while waiting for those marmalades to pass. I do think you need more girlfriends, but I hope that when you aren't dreaming about them, you are dreaming about me.

Hi Dear Darling Pippa -

I'm so happy you had a nice trip & here able to sleep in the back of the Landy all nice & with the sun on your furs.

My mom/secretary said she would be most honored to do Snoses with you...but ONLY AFTER I get some snoses first..if thats OK with you.

I agree with Ms. sure are looking handsome these days..the travel & change of scenery does you well.

Love & Licks,

Hi, Pippa!
I've told you this before. You can have as much girlfriends as you want and as long as all they agree with that!
have you seen mean cats over there?
I am very sad knowing about Durango. At least he had a few happy days with Maryann and the pack.
Kisses and hugs

Were you looking for cats? I am a cat. But why were you looking for cats? I hope just to be friends?

Bama said...

Howrooo Pippa,
Just checking in, thank you for checking on us, we're fine, we just didn't have a 'puter for about a week. We're sorry to have worried you.
Glad you had a good trip back home, and are comfortably ensconced in your castle.
We just got back online to read the sad news about Durango. We're sharing tears & heartfelt sympathy with Maryanne & the rest of the pack.
Take good care of yourself, handsome.
Bama, Mikki & the boyz


Hi Pippa,
Yes now that we look at those pictures of Jazz's new friend at school, we see he does look like you. Jazz generally likes to play with dogs that are her size and up so I'm sure she'd love to play with you and could maybe even be another girl friend to add to that ever growing list. Sad news about dear little Darango hey.

We were very sorry to read about poor Durango.

We like your landy pics, you look so happy in the landy!

I agree, I think your Mama should pass the awards over to you Pippa!

Love and licks, Marvin xxxxx

Marvin and Jeannie said...

Pippa! My Jeannie has updated my blog, about where our photo was taken in Yorkshire after your comment just now.

It is in a place called Hawes, Wensleydale (Wallace and Gromit country!), North Yorkshire.

One of our favourite places, the hotel is good too, it loves Dogs!

love and licks from Rainy and cold Scotland, Marvin xxxxx

I totally agree with you, you should have ALL the awards... come to think of it, ALL the food and toys too!

Tasha & Eva said...

Hi Pippa dear! It looks like you had a great ride in your Landy and had a fun time with your house guests at Christmas. Pippa, you should get Mistress to at least share those awards. Oh, and as far as your comment about me coming to snuggle with you and not be in the snow, there is nothing I would like better!! Belly Rubs, Tasha.
