Post-Valentine snooze

I had a brilly Valentine's Day. Thank you to all my girlfriends who mentioned me on their blogs and who came to visit my post. I love you all to bits. As you know. I love you as much as toast in fact.

But I was very tired. And the silly cushion fell on my head.

So I went to sleep listening to this nice music. They go arooooroooo too. I like it. And I am thinking about all my girlfriends when I listen to it. This song is for you.

Today master went out on his bicycle. Without me.

AROOOOROOOOROOOROOOO I called. Helpfully. So he could hear me. Mistress wasn't impressed.

"Shut up Pippa."

I didn't want to shut up. I wanted to go out with master.



"Come here Pippa," she said. I went into the bedroom where idle mistress was still lying in her bed.

We did snoses and head rubbings and ear rubbings and she said sort-of nice things in a sort-of nice mistress voice.

Then I went out and did another roooroo. And mistress told me to shut up again and to go to my cama (bed). So I did.

I still don't like it when master goes out without me. Mistress is boring and she is NOT EATING TOAST at the moment so I am missing out.

I am in a grumpy sleepy mood now thinking about all this.

I need a nap. I need those Nights in White Satin.

ETA: Master and Mistress seem to think Nights in White Satin by the Moody Blues is A Classic. Whatever that means. Sounds nice though. Pippa


Classic Marvin said...

ooooooooooooooh! My Jeannie says that music, Nights in White Satin, is the most and bestest track, for romancin' and stuff. Wow! She says she may have to lie down for a while, she had forgotten how beautiful the music was.......;0D

Pippa, I am so glad you had a lovely Valentine's Day. Ain't it grand to be a Dog!

And yes, my Jeannie says it is a Classic! A bit like you!

Classic Pippa. love and licks from Marvin who can never leave a short and succinct post.

Sorry you could not go on the bike ride, my Dad takes me some times on his bike rides in the summer but it is hard work keeping up with him.

I will finish now, Jeannie wanted this reply to be long so she could listen to the end of the Classic track.......

Moody Blues......!

Marvin Braveheart Hound said...

oh it finished, that is exactly how long it took her to post this comment, the length of the Moody Blues.....

we will visit again she says, to look at you sleeping so sweetly and to hear the mooooosic.

Kapp pack said...

You look so dreamy and I like the song! AroooooOOooo! Can you hear me across the Atlantic??

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

The Army of Four said...

Woo. Mom likes that song. Siberianly speaking, I'm more into Brazilian jazz or bagpipes. But that sounds ok.

Hi Pippa,
Thanks for coming to visit Hana on my blog.
You look awfully tired. Maybe you have too many girlfriends? I hope you get some rest!

Randi said...

Oh Pippa...that pic of you all cozy on your white couch (like white satin sheets) is almost too much for my 7 year old heart to bear...oh my....I need to go fan are looking sooo very handsome!

Love & Licks,

ps...was the snoses incident with Mistress just cuz your master was biking? It was just a fluke, right?

Tasha & Eva said...

Darling Pippa,
We wish we were there to snuggle with you and take your mind off of Master leaving without you.

Eva doesn't make sound when Dad or Momma leaves but I make up for that. Don't tell Momma but I cry louder when Dad leaves. Even if he is just going out to get the mail. Someday we'll post a video of it.

Jamie & Sunny said...

Pippa, your people are quite right. That song IS a classic. You're quite the classic too :)

One of the pack said...


Hola. You are uno handsome senor. Our mistress's Espanol es malo. She only had one semester in high school. She'll try to remember a little from 10...20..we know it's more...years ago. Ha!

You look so peaceful when you are resting (es dormido).

Your terrace looks pretty awesome. We can certainly see why you'd want to spend time out there.

Thanks for popping by to visit.

You LOOK like a knight in white satin all curled up in your dog bed. Sorry that you missed the bike ride. I bet your roo-rooing almost made the master turn around, though. And if you keep it up, the mistress might buy you a sidecar so you can ride alongside the bike.

PS- Thank you so much for nominating our blog posting! We will make you dozens of pieces of buttered toast and send them your way. I personally like toast with melted manchego cheese. But perhaps that's too routine for a continental dog like yourself?

Lorenza said...

Hola Pippa!
Hablaste seriamente con tu Master cuando regreso a casa?? Espero que si para que no vuelva a dejarte!
Espero que las proximas fotos que pongas sean de Pippa feliz!

Natasha Fernz said...

Happy Valentine's Day Pippa...

albeit a bit late...

How dare you get left behind.....and without toast!!!

Maybe a Zen-kiss will make you feel better :)



Guinness & Shiloh's Family said...

Oh, my darling Pippa. I would like to curl up with you and give you many snoses and share toast with you - you look so very handsome in those pics. I roooo the best in our house, but not when mom or dad leave - they give us cookies before they leave, so it's okay until they come back

snoses & snuggles, Guinness

Guinness & Shiloh's Family said...

BTW, we have an update from MISTY! She is doing very well and plays hard with her adopted brother. However, she caught a couple of chickens that escaped the coop! The call her the Great White Hunter. hee hee wonder if chicken tastes like cat?

Comet and BLU said...

You look very cozy in your bed. Even with the pillow on your head (it's supposed to go UNDER).

Pippa! Excellent tune indeed. Sounds like you're ready to start Valentine's Day all over again! Perhaps it's better you don't go on a bike ride: have you left any hearts unbroken on Gibraltar? :) Get some rest, guapo.


Frasier said...

Hi Pipps
A cold nose on a body part usually gets my mistress going!!!

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Pippa, Mom loves your video! She has been a Moody Blues fan for more years than she will admit. She is has all of their albums on VINYL!! Then she bought the CDs when they came out.

You look like you needed the rest after your very busy Valentine's Day. Roxie thinks you look very handsome.

(another one we hope Roxie doesn't read!)


Hi Pippa,
Glad you had a great Valentine's Day but sorry to hear that your master left you behind when he went out on his bike and that you have a toast situation! Hope it all gets better for you.
