Two admissions.......And one award, x three



Well, mistress has finally returned. Not before time.

That's not my admission though. I have to confess that master and I were bored. Not that we missed her. Not really.

But we worked our fingers and paws to the bone doing the cleaning while she was gone.

Master and I - skin and bone after our hard week


Mistress claimed she was cleaning my kennel flat in Gibraltar. As if. I don't know why it took her a whole week to clean a tiny flat. We had a house and a large terrace to clean. We had no-one to moan at and victimise. It seems mistress is useful after all.

Wait. What is this? What is this pesky flower doing on MY blog? No sooner is she back than mistress is invading my space. She seems to think it is a pretty flower and her blogging pals have told her it looks nice on her blog so she wants to add it to mine because not everyone reads her blog.

Hibiscus


Of course not mistress, dogs are interested in dogblogs, not flowerblogs or whatever you write about. Mistress tells me that it is cold and wintry in some parts of the world so this pretty flower will cheer people up. Well, just this once. But no more flowers allowed on my blog unless I am in the picture too. Huh. This is Pippadogblog not Pippaflowerblog mutter mutter.......

Admission number two. This is a difficult one. As you all know whenever I do a poll I always take your advice. Even when you all tell me not to get rid of mistress. So when I asked you for help with my dilemma about girlfriends naturally I intended to do what you all suggested and go for more.

But I am not sure I want to. Lots of my top girlfriends came back and said how much they loved me and I was very touched. Even though I have lots of Pippalove I think I should really concentrate on making these special and loyal girlfriends feel loved. And mistress keeps getting them confused.

So, I am not going to actively look for more girlfriends, but.......I do need to say that Jazz and Dixie have agreed to be my girls in Japan. (Mistress is prattling away about Big in Japan and Alphaville music here very good mistress, go away now.)

Not just that, but Narra has agreed that I can be her elevated Ethel thinker, no I mean ethereal thinker. While Wally is grounded and earthly.

Ethereal thinking


Naturally I am not going to pass up these three beautissima girlfriends, although I may need to brush up on my Ethel-real thinking, as I am usually sleeping not thinking. For you Narra, I will be a thinking dog though. And for Jazz and Dixie I will even let mistress play Big in Japan more than once on youtube - or even on that funny small round black thing that spins round and round at 45 rpm on a large machine. PippaQuiz. What is the small funny round black thing called?

Back to the girlfriends. Even though I am not going to look for more, (well, not just now anyway) I would like to say that I will never refuse anyone who asks. So, if any girl out there wants a boyfriend I will always be here. Just ask.

Finally a couple of quick comments to some of my top girlfriends. To Kelsey Ann and Roxie, I didn't know I was your only boyfriend so I will remember that and make sure I send you extra special loves. To Guinness, you will be my Valentine too and I will be thinking of you in a few days time. And to Tasha and Eva - it DOES snow here in Spain. Big time. So that is no excuse for not moving here.

To Ethel. It must be difficult for you that Wally stinks so much. I do not smell. Nor can I smell Wally in Gibraltar, or Spain. It is a shame you are not chasing fuzzy cats tennis balls on my terrace with me.

Ooops I nearly forgot. Distracted by my girlfriends as usual. I have been given the E for Excellence award. Mistress says it can't mean much because A is the top mark not E but I have told her she is wrong as usual. In fact I have it three times so I must be excellentissima. I have been given it by Lorenza, MayaMarie, and Jazz and Dixie. Of course if mistress had not been gallivanting in Gibraltar and had kept up to my blog she might have posted this award sooner, but there again, if she had done, I might not have been given it three times. I so like to get awards more than once.



Well, I am a happy Pippa. I have some new girlfriends, a nice award, mistress is back for me to complain about and I nearly had a marmalade gatito this morning but master was too fast. I was going for it for you Sophie, honest.

Mistress is back - preparing tasty food above my table den

Oh Pippa, I would have been so pleased. There's a marmalade chat down the street who stalks me. Can you believe it! The dogdamned thing doesn't get outside in winter, so I'm practicing my moves for the spring and peeing in it's front garden as often as possible.

I understand your girlfriend dilemna too, Pippa. I have the same problem with the boys.

Oh, Pippa! I think I know the answer to your quiz--because I have some too! Records! Big ones, little ones, scratched up ones...

Hope you get some extra toast this weekend!

Peace, love and pets...

Darling Pippa,
We are so touched to be included in your top girlfriends. It makes us feel special.
It snows in Spain? We thought you were to far south for that. We'll have to tell Momma. Though as much as Momma would love to move to Europe, we would probably end up in Oberkochen, Germany since that is where Dad's company is based.

Dreaming of Pippa,
Tasha & Eva

We forgot to mention the flower is very pretty.

Glad Mistress is back. I have no idea how you keep up with so many girlfriends. I couldn't do it.

JAZZ AND DIXIE said...

Hi Pippa,
Wow you got that award 3 times - see your blog is excellent! Thanks for letting us be your girls in Japan. Mum checked out Big in Japan on Youtube as she'd never heard that song before. Don't ask us what planet she is living on! We have to say thank you also for letting your mum put that beautiful Hibiscus
on your blog. It really made us think of a beach somewhere in summer while we are so cold here in Tokyo.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Pippa!
I know you are happy now that your Mistress is back! You don't want to admit it but you missed her!
That is a beautiful flower!
Kisses and hugs

Mama thinks that flower is beautiful!

You seem to have lots of girlfriends, but since you asked, I'd love to have you as my boyfriend :)

Peace + Paws,

Pippa, I love that you're showing your softer side with a beautiful picture of a flower on your blog. Of course, I prefer pictures of Pippa.

Randi said...

Hi Dear Darling Pippa,

I think you should repost about the pic & tell everyone you demanded that Mistress put a pretty pink flower on your bloggy to dedicate it to your girlfriends...if you look at my bloggy today, we were thinking the same things! But I'm IN the pic with the pink flower! We are really in sync Pippa Dear...

& I gave you a little shout out (along with Wally together) on my bloggy...about flowers...so flowers are not all bad...I bet you could get more girlfriends (even if you aren't actively looking & only actively looking for kittys) with the lure of pretty pink flowers..

Lots of Love & Licks,
Randi

oooooh Handsome Pippa! You are such a one for the girlies, I can tell.

Jeannie says to tell your Mama she loves the "Big In Japan" track......it brought back some happy memories.

I am glad Mistress is back, I had risotto tonight, 'cos someone who will not be named on here, dropped some on the floor, it was yummy!

love and licks, your friend Marvin xxxxxx

Marvin - Braveheart Hound said...

oh yes, my Jeannie says the flower is very pretty, but she loves the pics of you best.

She is a creep sometimes(!)

But I love her cos she gave me the risotto leavings on purpose......

Gus and Louie said...

We really don't care what mom throws into the water I will get it. She has a funny picture of me trying to figure out how to grab onto a liter bottle that she will post soon..
Have fun with mom being home..

Hola Pippa!!! Muchas Gracias, ya estoy un poco mejor... gracias, por cierto, tu y yo somos tocayas??? yo nací en Malaga...

Love,Chloe

The Army of Four said...

Hey hey, Pippa! It's Zim = Amber's little brother. I gotta say, your mom is right - that flower helped a LOT! It looks absolutely DELICIOUS! Living in the frozen wasteland we live in HAS its drawbacks and one is that all of our lucious landscaping treats are long gone. That's basically the only one I can think of ... but I'm sure my mom would offer up more. 'Course, she can't really type well with her hands frozen like that...
Play bows,
Zim

Natasha Fernz said...

Hey Pippa

Hmmm not sure about the flower thing... not very err... masculine...

sorry sweetie..

Randi said...

Hello Dear Darling Pippadog...

I would be most honored to be your Valentine on Thursday...could you send me your e-peemail address again? My mom/secretary is stupid & didn't write it down the first time you sent it to me...or if you want to email me, randithelabnewf@hotmail.com then I'll have your address....I have a little something to send to you.

Oh Pippa...you sure are handsome...more handsome than you'll ever know!

Love & Licks,
Randi

Jackson said...

Hey Pips, ooo, J1 hasn't heard that song for years! I'm guessing that J1 and your mistress must be a similar age.
We have one of those hibiscus things in our garden too. The only difference is that ours is dead. Yet another plant that J1 has managed to kill. J x
