Pippa's newsround

Mistress has been idle this weekend. What's new you ask?

Well, at least she usually cooks lunch. She didn't even do that yesterday. Poor master had to do it. And he roasted the pimientos for tea.

Sum total of mistress's achievements yesterday? Making the dressing, and putting a bit of salad on a plate. Said she was tired. Too busy doing nothing if you ask me.

Efforts this morning: looking at the internet to read about the Spanish election. No mistress this is not a political blog. I may be Spanish, I may have my passport, but as I can't vote, it is of no relevance to me. I can't influence it one way or the other - and neither can you 'cos you can't vote either - so take the silly politics off to your blog. Who cares who won? Let's talk about important things like TOAST.

Anyway we all had toast together today, and some left over shepherd's pie that master made yesterday. It was nice. I got most of the pie for my breakfast and then they got the leftovers for theirs and we all ate their toast.

Mistress likes her toast with olive oil. Master flits between butter one day, and olive oil, usually with garlic the next. I don't care so long as I get plenty.

I shared mistress's portion kindly with her, and totally missed out on master's. So he had to do some more for us both to eat. Yum.

Waiting for master to finish sharing my toast

Standing up - poised to leap

And in the air for the snatch and grab, I mean taking nicely

All finished. Pooh

But why am I in black and white? Are we going arty? Or was the light so bad that mistress had to put me in black and white? Hahaha.

I have a couple of news items. I forgot to say minx Sophie La Flirtador proposed to me for Leap Year. And promptly said she wasn't going to be remotely faithful and she didn't think I would be either. Huh. What sort of a proposal is that - not a serious one - fortunately. Phew. Narrow escape there even though Sophs is very beautiful. Thank you Sophs for your kind thoughts but I think we both know we have the ideal arrangement for now.

Another lovely girlfriend Ammy asked if I went to the table, scrunched my nose against it, and made a piggy-snout face? Er no, Ammy. I don't know what a piggy-snout face is but I don't do one I'm sure. Although I do hide under the table and just stick my nose out when toast and other goodies are going on there.

Anyway I never did get any of the mushroom omelette even though I sat soooo nicely at the table, and on the floor too.

And another piece of news that one of my husky pals alerted me to. It's a doggie who doesn't seem to be on Dogs With Blogs, so I haven't posted it on DWB News. But over at Magic and Georgie's adventures they have had a couple of hospital issues this past week. I know lots of you are friendly and open-minded about who you visit so if you get chance to give them some supportive barks, I am sure they would like that.

I thought it was odd that lots of you had a windy day when I did last week. A windy day all over the dog world. It is not just windy here today, it is not even a sunny day, so master called me in from my gate and I have been a sofa dog.

Me and master

Just me - and master's arm of course

Mom is going to try to get a picture of me doing the snooter scrunchie thing. She can't resist me when I do it - my great sister Jesse did it and I remind Mom of her in many ways. :)
Shepherd's Pie? I've never had that. But then... I'm not a shepherd, I'm a husky. Maybe that's why. Hee hee hee!

Geez glad sophie's proposal wasn't serious. You could have been trapped. Good job on the toast.

scierzan said...

That was nice of master to make more toasts to share with you Pippa.


One of the pack said...

Yummy Toast! You wait so patiently. We love the pic with the flower your mistress snuck in. And you look quite cute snuggling on the sofa.

Happy Monday to you.

Darling Pippa,
Lat weekend our Momma made a mushroom and cheese omelet to share with us but then Dad decided he wanted some do we didn't get any! He doesn't share with us like Momma does.

We have a new post tonight but no pictures. You'll have to look at the ones that we sent you instead.

Hey Pippins!

I bit ∆≈'s butts and got him out of the hospitals, gardens and studio and out of his stupids blog (I think he stole MY blog and changed the names) and stuffs to help me.

You've been verys busy. C-a-t-s, chickens, fast movin' airs (Like heres at times) and toasts. Groovys.

Abouts the toast... My dads likes some butters and then lots of peanuts butter on it. Then some hots chocolate to wash it downs. Kinda likes a chewys Reese's Peanut Butters Cup.

The new looks of my blog is okays but the new Bloggers is NOT COOOOLS! I can't do all the thingys I did befores. OR BIG DUMMYS hasn't fingered it outs yet. I think that's it.

Nice barkin' at ya. Hopes to come backs soon.

Sophie Brador said...

Woosh! I have to say, I am relieved you didn't accept my proposal. But I would still love to come live with you in Spain, if that's okay.


Ferndoggle said...

Nuthin' better than a good snuggle with your master. Other than a bite of toast.


Kathryn and Ari said...

Toast with olive oil and garlic? oooooohh, we're swooning here. What could be better? I think that might even top my standby of manchego cheese on toast!

Kapp pack said...

You're still my best beau! I would eat toasts with you anyday!

Woos and kisses, KA


Hi Pippa,

wally said...

'lo Pips! Good of you to keep the apes from sneaking their ideas onto your blog. Dog issues only. But what's with us not getting vote? Not even about the toast!

Reading about your food makes me sooooooooooooo hungry!

J made cheese omeletto last evening but I didn't get even a tiny piece would you believe?

She says she is not giving me cheese 'cos I am disgusting after I have eaten it.

I have no idea what she is barking about......

Blue said...

Hey Pippa!

Just stopping by to say hi, and share our wishes for much more toast for you. Please don't be too upset with us husky grrrls, Mik & I were talking about it and figured it must be part of our breed standard, that we settle down with just one boydog & mate for life, so it's really not our fault. And there are so many other lovely grrrls out there for you, you're very lucky to have both Tasha & Eva, those two grrrls are beawootiful!

Love & Licks,
