What to do?

Master and I are deciding whether or not to go and visit mistress.

I have mixed views about it myself, although it means we will have a nice drive in my Landy.

And it has been raining here too, so I have been refusing to go out and do what dogs do. As I have said before, this dog does NOT do it in the rain.

Master tells me he has spotted a rally for Landy owners and other such people. He thinks it will be fun. Between you and me, I think he is a bit jealous that mistress had a fine time running around in silly tunnels in the middle of the Rock of Gibraltar. Anyway this rally/excursion thingy is near mistress, so we are currently considering this proposal.

Oh, and if anyone really wants to see pictures of boring old tunnels and silly stuff like that click *here* to read about mistress spending a whole morning wandering around gloomy doomy tunnels and looking at explosive stores and stuffs.

You see, I have been very firm. Hana helpfully commented that history photos are a no-no. Thank you Hana. And in fact, no flowers either today.

But I do have a lovely award from my adorable dachsie girlfriend Roxie, and her brothers Sammy and Andy. Look, a Smiley award. I was very pleased because they recognised what problems I have with Misery, and I was little bit Pippa-embarrassed because they said I wrote clever stories that made them smile. Hehe. That made me laugh because I am not clever at all. Anyway, thank you Roxie and the bros.

I do want to mention a couple of other comments that pups left on my last post.

Kathryn and Ari said it was important to herd humans - as we all know - otherwise they sit down at the computer one more time. Huh! A voice of experience there I think Ari. And why do you all think mistress is ALWAYS late when she is meant to meet Master and I on our walks?

Now, regarding my jasmine terrace. There is lots of it - jasmine not terrace I mean - so there is plenty for every single girlfriend, every other pup, and their humans as well. So that's good isn't it?

And I wanted to arooroo a couple of things following some ruff ruffs to my Post-Valentine Snooze story.

Dave from Ao4 mentioned Brazilian jazz and bagpipes. I will have to wait for mistress to come back as she knows more about that sort of thing than me. She doesn't know much, but I know even less. About music I mean.

And Comet and Blue told me that the cushion in the picture (the one on my head) is supposed to go underneath. Hehehe. I thought that was funny - definitely Bits of Witz from a Couple of Spitz. Actually, it usually ends up on the floor. But I was feeling muy tranquilo listening to the musica.

While I am on music, I did a PippaQuiz back at the beginning of this month. I asked what the funny small round black thing that spins round and round at 45 rpm on a large machine was called. I forgot to announce that Diane got it right. Well done Diane. It is called a record. I did not know that. Thank you.

There was some mention of girlfriends and my list. It is a sore point, yet again, with those pesky beautiful young huskies. No more on that one for now.

Well I am worn out now. So nighty night.

Oh no. What is this? An infiltration of my blog from hundreds of kilometres away. Apparently it is a strelitzia (two of them to be accurate) that mistress *just happened* to take a photo of when I am trying to get a post up without tedious flowers.

I think master and I need to go and keep an eye on her. Before I know it she will have taken a picture of every flower in Gibraltar.

Really tasty-looking flower, Pippa!
Congrats on the award - aren't those Dachsies the best?!?
Any excuse to go for a ride works for me. I love the car!
Play bows,
PS: Ammy sends her love!

My mom loves the orange flower! I say go for the will get you out but don't put your toes in the rain if you don't want to!

It sounds like you have your hands full between the master's Rover and the mistress's flowers and tunnels. It must be hard to keep them both in line! Sounds like you need a double dose of French toasties. Mom buys fresh Challah (sweet egg bread) from Whole Foods. And she adds ground flax seed which has a nutty flavor, and makes it good for us.

Heidi is our twirler here. She twirls up to 10 times for shrimp and chicken.

We can't to see more pics of your beautiful terrace. We love napping outside. Have un imponente semana.

Sounds like you are having a difficult time controlling your humans! Good luck!

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

(remember I am NOT one of those young, indecsive huskies. I am a mature husky who knows what she wants)

PerfectTosca said...

Hey Pippa, you handsome dood, do what I do. I make The Woman hold an umbrella over me when it's raining. Of course, I take my time too, because it's fun to watch her get all soaked.

The Brat Pack said...

You are such a handsome makes my heart speed up when I see you.


Marvin said...

Yes, it is very important Pippa, to make sure you keep your Blog focused, these hoooooomans peppering the blogs with their flowers etc are a big Nuisance.

I love the pictures of you, so I am barking.....

Less Flowers and More Pippa!

love and licks, Marvin xxxxx

Harry said...

I have to confess, I rather liked those flowers. They looked a bit like some kind of exotic bird!

Kathryn and Ari said...

You and the master must miss Mistress very much. Thanks for posting the link to her blog; I really enjoyed reading the story about the tunnels. What a place!

PS- Be sure to wear your rain/wind coat if you go visit!

Tasha & Eva said...

Darling Pippa,
We tried to comment last night but Blogger was determined to keep us from you. But nothing can keep us from our darling Pippa.

Our evil eyes are only directed at Momma and Dad. We only look upon you with love. We know that you are already under our spell.

We think you you secretly miss Mistress and trying to convince Master to go visit her.

Tasha & Eva

P.S. We told Dad about the link to Mistress expedition. He'll check it out later this week.

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...


We thought you would have blog entry without flowers but Mistress snuck one in at the very end. It is a pretty and exotic flower but we want to see Pippa pictures! To whom should we speak about this?

Roxie is proud to be one of your girlfriends because you can choose whomever you want.

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

Any excuse for a ride in the car, I always say!

Mummy likes the flower, please don't encourage her. A drive in the landy sounds like much more fun.

Hi Pippa,
Thank you for the warm welcome :)
My Mum & Dad have a Landy too!! I love going for rides in it.

My Mum thinks you are ever so handsome!! She went a little mushy when she saw your picture, so no doubt we will be checking in on you again soon.

Love Ben xxx

Sophie Brador said...

Oh Pippa, I have discovered the wonders of toast and now I know we are meant to be together in Spain. I am trying to convince my mom to buy a Landy and drive me straight over. She thinks I'm nuts, although she said she would love to be in Spain, rather than sitting in this snow bank here in Montreal.


The Zoo Crew said...

Ohhhhh, I love those flowers. I would probably have them destroyed though if they were in my backyard. I think you should go on an adventure....I LOVE adventures :)

Peace + Paws,


Ferndoggle said...

Hi my darling Pippa! I'm sorry you're having a tough time controling your people. It takes a lot of work to whip them into shape.

I'd love to go for a ride in the Landy with you.

Bella said...

Go on the Landy rally it sounds fun - but you will probably be car surfing so may need to practice.
Congratulations on your award !!
Is it really true that you don't do your doggy business outside when it's raining ??
What happens? My ma makes funny screetching & flapping with her arms if any of us even think of that !!
Thanks for saying you will play ball with me for a bit I feel much better.
