Out with master

Off we go for our lunchtime walk.

I get so excited. When we are lying at my gate master will say:

"Come along Pippa, time to go out."

I run inside. When we get to the kitchen he picks up his keys and I do a vuelta or two.



And right back in position and poised

Then master and I run through the house. Well, I run anyway and then I get in front of him so I stop, do another vuelta, and wait for him to catch up, run behind him and then stay very closely by his side.

When we reach the patio it is time for another vuelta while he picks up my lead and his stick (to beat off any nasty attackers of whatever type).

Waiting patiently by my lead

Nearly off now

And off we go.

I have some good news.

First I have an award. Thank you Momo and Pinot.

Toadally awesome. Hehe. I like that.

And second, Misery Mistress is off on her travels again for a few days. She wants to go on some silly history outing with her heritage society group.

Let's get this clear mistress. When you come back - I do not want history pictures on MY blog. Put them on your own. Look how more and more flowers have crept onto my blog. I have decided to allow one or two occasionally because some of my girlfriends have said they are nice.

But I am not, repeat NOT, having history pictures on here. So you go have a nice time mistress, and master and I will do macho bonding on my jasmine-filled terrace.

Congrats on your award, Pippa--it is much deserved.

Both Ari and I are admiring your pre-walk routine. It's always a good idea to herd the humans around to make sure they get out the door. Otherwise, we might be tempted to sit down at the computer one more time!

Pippa, If I come to visit, can I macho bond too?


Ferndoggle said...

Oh Pippa, I think you're TOAD-aly pawesome too! What a great award. I also spin when I'm getting ready for a walk.

A vuelta is a twirl? I like that word!
By the way, my mom likes the flowers on your keep sharing them!

Frasier said...

We can almost smell that jasmine !

Tasha & Eva said...

Darling Pippa,
Please tell Mistress that our Dad likes history pictures. He's always watching the history channels.

Look at Master with puppy dog eyes and maybe you'll get extra toast while Mistress is gone.

I liked reading about your getting ready for walkies routine, very similar to mine, apart from the Vueltas.......

Hope your Mistress has a good trip away and doesn't bring too much history back with her,

Much Macho Bonding is to be recommended, love and licks, Marvin xxxxxx

Marla said...

Walks are the best. So cold here they are not as much fun right now. Beautiful flowers.

Gus and Louie said...

Louie and I get really excited when Mom gets out our leads. We jump and carry on until Mom gets us to sit so she can put them on. Then we drag her out the door to the truck, since we are going to the Lake. ya

Big Sloppy Kisses

Jackson said...

Hey Pippa, hope that mistress has fun on her history trip and you have macho bonding fun with master. I do sort of vueltas before my walk but I also tend to play snatch and grab with the lead. I like to keep them on their toes. J x

Hana said...

I vote No on the history pictures too! As for your walks, wowie, you sure are very patient! I'm jumping out of my skin just waiting to GO!

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Congratulations on your award! You ARE totally awesome.

Thank you for support while we tried to find out what was wrong with Roxie. We hope she is on the road to recovery.

Come by our blog and see what we gave you!

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

PerfectTosca said...

Hi Pippa, I might add you are looking exceptionally handsome in these photos, as in Hubba Hubba!

Contrags on the award, you deserve it. I may not be todally awesome but I am living with a very larg frog right now, does that count?


Hi Pippa,
You look so wrapped to be going out on a walk! We love being outside too but hate putting on our jackets or harnesses so we don't get excited when mum says its time for a walk. We can smell the beautiful Jasmin from here. Thanks for letting your mum put in the occassional flower pic - we do love flowers.
