Answers ..... and sharing

I thought I would do a bit of a round-up with news and some answers to questions some of you have asked over the last few posts.

But first of all, I want to do a mega-big thank you and lots of snoses to Tasha and Eva, and Chili, Mikki, Cracker and Bama - the River Hill Pack. Their holiday cards have finally arrived at my GibKennelFlat. Mistress doesn't know when, but she picked them up when she arrived there. Now I am impatiently waiting for her to bring them back to me so I can swoon over everyone all the time. (Except for Chili and Cracker although they are very handsome dogs).

Roxie, Sammy and Andy asked me if would miss mistress? Bah. Of course not. Who? I've forgotten her already (except that I have told her to do me a blog post). However, I know that mistress is missing me because she has told master so.

Pacco said maybe mistress would bring me back a present. I don't think so. She didn't even get me anything for my Gotcha Day.

Lorenza asked if master likes to wake up early. I've never asked him. But I do. So that's all that matters.

Charlie and Jackson asked if I would get extra toast (or less) with mistress gone. Well I certainly won't get any less 'cos she hardly gives me any. But master seems to be getting a bit fed up of toast which is Not Good News, as I can't grill my own. So I am going to have to roo roo a few times in the morning to make sure he keeps up to it.

Jazz and Dixie asked if my terrace looks down onto the sea. Yes it does. Master and mistress like to look at the sea. As you all know I am more interested in looking for catz.

Looking for catz

On the post about my den, Helios asked if I was sniffing for more girlfriends. I thought that was a good response - but I haven't had much luck yet.

Sniffing again

Pacco suggested I hold auditions. I thought that would be fun. But I would say yes to every applicant anyway. So spayed female would be very welcome if you are still interested Pacco. Especially such a beautiful agile one who seems to win lots of food all the time.

LacyLulu pointed out that I would get my girlfriends confused. Well I don't but silly mistress does. But I'm sure every girlfriend knows that is not my fault.

Wally reassuringly reminded me that Ethel is not jealous which is cool. Neither am I. So I don't mind sharing La Flirtador and Randi with you Wally. I can understand why they are particularly attracted to a Corgador like you.

Oh and earlier La Flirtador asked whether I preferred toast or butter. That's a difficult one Sophs, but I think the toast just has it. I love the crunchy toast and will eat it with olive oil on too.

And although it wasn't a comment on here, I have to mention the lovely Penny and her new collar of hearts. She gave the big heart to Peanut and there was a little one for me too. Thank you Penny.

Now on the subject of sharing, I thought I would post up my disappointment about some of my girlfriends. I keep reading that lots of them have got new boyfriends, or one special one, and I just don't think they love me at all anymore. I am just a friend. I feel so dejected and rejected.


MayaMarie said she loved Juneau because he was YOUNG and CUTE. I ask you. Do I look that old and past it? Then although Mikki and Bama said they loved me very much and liked being my girlfriends, a couple of months later I discover Mikki is Jack's girlfriend, and now Mikki and Cracker are offering Bama to Cosi. I'm not having a lot of luck with these beautiful huskigirls. Next Amber and Kelsey Ann will abandon me. A roo roo boo hoo.

I need to be clear here. I am not disappointed in them, I think they are lovely. But I feel I have failed them. So this is why I have not been looking for other girlfriends as my confidence has taken a bit of a battering recently. Otherwise I might have asked the adorable Jazz and Dixie, they have such pretty faces and they are so well-behaved, and it would be so cool to have girlfriends in Japan. And I have taken a particular liking to Narra - even though I would have to share yet another girlfriend with Wally. Again. Then there is Pacco, as mentioned earlier. (Pacco does remind me of Ethel I have to say, well they are both black and leap around a lot).

To cheer me up a bit, I will finish by adding that Gus and Louie have given me the Thinking Blogger award. This is the third time I have been given it so I am very pleased. Particularly as it now means I think three times as much as mistress as she has still only been given it once. Hehehe. I will just pass it onto Ethel this time, as she said she wanted to be a thinking blogger like Wally. Of course you are Ethel. You think a lot. Mainly about tennis balls, but occasionally about me when you remember. So I think you definitely deserve the award.

Thinking - with eyes shut


Ferndoggle said...

Ethel is definitely a thinker. She likes to think about tennis balls A LOT!!

You will always have a special place in my heart matter how many girlfriends you have. I'm not jealous either!


Charlie said...

Oh Pippa, you are so cool. What are those silly girls thinking?
- Charlie

Sophie Brador said...

Oh Pippa, I think about you all the time. Almost every other night I dream of sitting on the terrace with you, watching for cats and eating toast. I even chased a cat under a minivan today, just for you. The blasted thing scratched my nose, but I know you will defend me. It's probably still there. How fast can you get to Canada?


Randi said...

Hello my Dear Darling Pippadog...First I must say you look particularily fetching in that 1st handsome & strong...your stare could stop a kitty in its tracks...but I guess chasing after it is the fun don't stare too much..

Secondly, I am always thinking of you...once you visit Sophie in Canada..swing on down to California & then we can hang out & eat toast...& chase kitties & you can teach me some spanish...

Te amo Pippaperro,

Love & Licks,

Peanut said...

Pippa sorry you are having trouble with the women. I hope you get it all straightened out.

wally said...



PS. IF you SNIFF HARD enough You can probably SMELL WALLY even all the way in Gibraltar because he STIIIIIINKS!

Lorenza said...

Hola Pippa!
Te hicimos muchas preguntas! Gracias por las respuestas!
No mas novias??

Kapp pack said...

You are my only boyfriend as I could find no other who was sophisticated enough! I have not forgotten you!

WOo woo, Kelsey Ann

Tasha & Eva said...

Darling Pippa,
Please don't be sad. We love you and always will.
We asked Momma if we can move to Spain to be closer to you, She responded that since she can't speak Spanish and it doesn't snow there, it would not be a good idea.

Love always,

Simba said...

Toast is yummy, I'd stick with toast if I were you.

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Pippa, we are glad that you do not have to be sad and miss mistress. We asked because me miss Mom whenever she leaves. Do not worry about the girlfriend situation. You have so many that, occassionally, they find time to have another boyfriend. That does not mean you have failed them, just that they have extra time. Don't forget that Roxie is one of your girlfriends. She used to have Thrawn (of the Brat Pack) as her other boyfriend but he has gone to Rainbow Bridge. She doesn't want to take up too much of your time but you are her only boyfriend now as no one else has expressed any interest in her.

Sammy & Andy
(hoping Roxie never reads this!)

Guinness & Shiloh's Family said...

I shall always adore you, dear extra handsome Pippadog and you shall always be my valentine. Misty still holds you in her heart as well.

Snoses, Guinness

The Zoo Crew said...

Oh, Pippa...what to do, what to do! I've never had a boyfriend and my brother has never had a girlfriend. I'm afraid we're missing out but mom says we're just fine!!

Peace + Paws,


The Army of Four said...

Dear Pippa,
Please oh please oh PLEASE don't be sad! Whenever anyone is sad, I get really sad and then I horka or get my stress-induced colitis back because I really HAVE to have everyone HAPPY! Please be happy, OK Pippa?!?!
PS: You look SO handsome in those pictures!!!

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

Handsome Pippa, you have a lot going on in that head of yours! And we appreciate your sharing some of it with us.:) You know, you can be my elevated, ethereal thinker, and Wally can be my grounded, earthly one (I didn't just want to say tall and short). :)

I love your terrace and imagine the beautiful view of the ocean. I wish we could drive over there!


Marvin Braveheart Hound said...

Pippa! You must not be sad! Especially after those strong Scottish Beers I dropped off for you at the weekend, when I popped in to see you!

I can vouch that your terrace overlooks the sea, I have told my Jeannie all about your place.

She is now green wiht envy.

You are so darn handsome you could get any girlfriend you liked with one click of your paws.

Love and licks, Marvin in grey and horrid Scotland.........xxxx

Hammer said...

Hey Pippa
Have you ever thought about getting yourself a boyfriend. There are some very handsome blokes in DWB. Unfortunately I'm taken ... I've given my heart to Powder Puff. Otherwise I would have liked to be your boyfriend.
Thank you very much for showing Beau on your side-bar too and joining Stormy's mission OBBH. The blokes look even nicer in A04 Trooper uniform .. does this get you thinking ??
Love from Hammer

Marvin Braveheart Hound said...

Dear Pippa, hope you don't mind but I used one of your photos here on my blog, just cos you look so handsome.

Please let me know if you dont want to be pictured though on my blog.

licks, from Marvinxxxxx


Aww shucks Pippa we are both blushing! We would be happy to be your girls in Japan. You are such a cool pup!
Hang in there,
Jazz and Dixie

Kathryn and Ari said...

Wow--you're going to need a LOT of toast to keep up with all of this socializing. Tell the Master to get busy!

PS- We really, really love toasted cheese sandwiches: toast and cheese together in a gooey, crunchy salty marriage of bliss. I bet you have some great cheeses to choose from there, too!

Gus and Louie said...

Wow you can look right down on the ocean!! That would be so awesome. We could spend the entire day at the beach. That would be so much fun and Mom would be happy too. We would sleep a LOT!!

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus and Louie

Hammer said...

Hi Pippa
I'm real sorry, mate, for calling you a girl but it's mum's fault. She got confoosed again .. she's been a real worry lately .. in fact, it's a full time job keeping an eye on my mum. Women sure can be a handful.
Mum got confoosed with the girlfriends but the light went on and it's the mums who are girlfriends, not the doggies.
I'm sorry, mate, I'm a heteroosexuool so we'll just have to keep shaking paws and be buddies.
Love from Hammer

The Brat Pack said...

Wow you have a LOT of girlfriends, I'm jealous. Maybe you should write a relationship book.


The Husky in the Window said...

Oh Pippa, your "little black book" must be full. So many girlfriends! You got an award. Well deserved too!

Husky Hugs, MayaMarie

Pacco de Mongrel said...

Hey Pippa

Jazz and Dixie

Frasier said...

Hi Pippa thats a great picture of you lurking/sitting behind the flowers!!

Jackson said...

Hey Pippa, thanks for clearing up the toast question. I was hoping that you'd get more with Mistress being away. Having so many girlfriends must be such hard work. I don't know how you manage to keep up, especially with the fickle ones. J x
