OId year, new year

Hello everydog.

First of all Happy New Year and Feliz Año Nuevo to you all. And as I hope I said earlier, apols to anydog that has sent me an ecard that rubbish mistress has not replied to.

I had a very cool Christmas. I met some new amigos. Master and mistress met some people from the Internet. They came to my kennel flat and I loved them very much. Especially the woman. She was very nice.

Naturally us machos have to leave each other a bit of space, so me and the man respected each other on my sofa, just like master and I do.

But the woman was so lovely I couldn't resist going and cuddling up to her. Of course, I never cuddle up to mistress as you all know.

Although I have done a few more snoses with mistress. Especially yesterday when we shared some fine toast. And later I got sausage and tomato.

Now, I have to confess, Pippa is not a tough dog. I was very frightened yesterday. There were some big bang noises so I quickly ran to hide and lie down in the dark next to master's chair.

Apparently humans like to do FIREWORKS on New Year's Eve. I think they are nasty, nasty, NASTY.

This was not a good day for me. On top of the nasty noises, master went to the shops and bought a nasty brush. Mistress groomed me. Don't like that. I did furly nose at her but she didn't stop. Pooh. Sad Pippadog hiding under my table.

But I will be back later in the New Year, calm and tranquilo. Posting more often when mistress gets herself into gear. I hope the nasty brush goes away though. It is hardly a fine Christmas present for me.

And today for the New Year I am going to dream about beautiful Kelsey Ann. Queen Kelsey of The Kapp Pack.

Happy New Year Pippa, Mistress & Master!!!

I hope you were too upset with those nasty fireworks. I don't like them either and kept my Mom up for a long while barking last night...oh well.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Charlie said...

Oh Pippa... I used to hate the brush, but now mom starts really really gently and I LIKE IT!! It scratches those itches that I can't reach.

Peanut said...

Happy new Year. Eat the brush that will make it go away.

Kapp pack said...

I'm sure those will be very sweet dreams. I used to be really scared of the fireworks too, but as I lose my hearing they become less scary....although I do not wish the same rememdy for you :-)

Happy New Year to You and Yours!

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

Happy New Year to you and your Humans!

Lorenza said...

Hola Pippa!
Happy New Year to you, Mistress and Master!
We had fireworks near to our house too! I barked and barked until they finished! At 3 am and my mom was not happy with me!
I know you don't like toys but sure that brush was not a nice present for you!
Kisses and hugs

Sophie Brador said...

Oh Pippa, Kelsey Ann is just about the nicest doggie out there, but can she protect you from those nasty Fireworks? I'm not scared of them at all and I would make sure to keep you safe.


p.s keep giving your mistresses those snoses. You are making her very happy, I'm sure.

Jackson said...

Hey Pips, can't you hide the brush? Or eat it? I run and hide as soon as J1 goes anywhere NEAR the cupboard where the brush and comb is kept. Happy New Year pal and I hope it's relatively brush-free. J x

Harry said...

Happy new year Pippa!

We had blooming fireworks too. I hid in the bath for shelter, but inadvertantly turned on the taps in my panic, so had an impromptu bath!!

Toodle pip,

Hi Pippa
Visitors who let us snuggle up are good sorts!!


Happy New Year Pippa.
Apart from the brush and the fireworks it sounds like you had a good festive season.

Simba said...

Thats not a present! You look very content snuggling up with your humans.

Gus and Louie said...

We don't like those nasty brushes either. Louie hasn't had to endure that much yet but he will soon learn..

Big Sloppy kisses,
Gus and Louie

Happy New Year, Pippa-girl and Kate!

We hate the fireworks and the brushy things, too. We run and hide in the sofa rather than under the table, though.

Thanks for visiting Dogs' Aye View!
Wuf Ya!

Happy New Year!!!!! Hope they only pull out that brush when they absolutely have too. Looking forward to lots more fun and friendship this year!

Woofs, Johann

Ferndoggle said...

Happy New Year Pippa!! I'm sorry about the fireworks...if I were there I would've snuggled with you to make you feel better.


WaymanWynn said...

Aarroo! Pippa. I don't mind the brush, but what I really like are the back and neck rubs me Dad gives me. When he rubs Mom's feet at night, I just scoot up to them, turn my back, and act like I'm next in line. Ha! Works every time, 'specially when I look mournful at them over my shoulder, heh, heh. ;-) WW

Maggie & Mitch said...

I hate fireworks too, Pippa! We were lucky though - we didn't get any here - thank goodness!

Love ya lots,

Kathryn and Ari said...

Hola, Pippa, and Happy New Year! Spain sounds lovely--and much, much warmer than Northern New England here in the States!

The Army of Four said...

Rooooo, Pippa! Stormy doesn't like fireworks, either! And if they're REAL close (like the nasty neighbors who set them off right when we go out to potty) the boys don't like them either. I don't mind -- but I DO mind my pack-mates being upset, so I get upset about that. I really like everypuppy to be happy. Or I stress.
PS: you sure look snuggly!
PPS: Ooooh, sorry about the brush! Brushes are EVIL!

Hammer said...

Hi Pippa
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all !!!
I LOVE to be brushed. When I see the brush, I run up to my mum. But we're all different.
Where we live there were no fire crackers this New Years Eve coz of the terrible weather. We're flooded in right now. It hasn't stopped raining since Christmas Eve.
Thanks for calling by and it would be good if Katherine could put on her news ed hat for the DWB mission to find Beau.
Love from Hammer

Kerrio said...

Happy New Year to you Pippadog... you sure are a lady's man, 4 pawed or two!

Hello Pippa

How was your New Year...

Oooh you should learn to enjoy the grooming sessions... I love it when Mommy brushes me... :)

she doesn't do it often enough in my opinion...

Darling Pippa,
Tasha and Eva haven't received your card either. It'been about a month since they sent yours. I'm sure the evil postperson stole it so we'll send another.

T&E send their love.

Happy New Year, Pippadear!
I don't like the fireworks either, but the rest of the pack don't seem to mind them, so I pretend I don't either.
We all hate the brush too, but I have to say, you look exceptionally handsome and fluffy.
