A windy day

Pooh. It is very windy today. Misery Master won't let me go out onto my terrace.

It is sunny, and if I lie down by my gate, the wind will blow over the top of my head.

Do I care if dust blows in the house? No. (Mistress might even clean it). Or that it is cold? No. They should put more fur on. And while I'm on the subject, Scruffy Mistress needs to wash my throw on my sofa. Of course I want to go outside because I don't want to lie on a dirty throw. Perhaps I need to have a quick vomit - that soon makes her wash it. Hehe. I am feeling naughty today.

I got master up at 4.45am. That was fun. I thought the wind was nasty and it was disturbing my sleep so I thought I would disturb master too. Then I refused to let him play on the computer because I was frightened of the noise, so I made him sit on my sofa with me. (The one with the dirty covers).

Anyway, he has obviously learned, because he has just changed them for me. It's important to train your humans well you know, because they are not very bright. You need patience, and persistence. Sometimes things sink in.

Well, that is today's moan out of the way. I can't think of anything else. Oh yes I can. My wonderful treats from Darlings Tasha and Eva are not appearing often enough. Misery gave me two this morning. I mean, I ask you. There is a whole bag there of second yummy treats just waiting to be opened and the Two Meanies are just rationing my treats.

Now, Lovely Lacy Lulu has given me an award. Thank you very much Lacy for giving me the Funky Blog award. She says I always make her laugh. And she called me Pippalovedog too. I don't know that I mean to make anypup laugh, and I don't know what to think of Pippalovedog! But thanks Lacy, that has cheered me up on this windy day.

Here is my award.

And here, master and I are together on my sofa.

Tickly ears

Tickly nose

Tickly ears again

And.. even more tickly ears

Why have you stopped?

Tired, me. Being tickled is hard work

Hi Dear Darling Pippa...Do you think I would fit on the couch with you? Would you let me tickle your ears & nose? I'll even bring you a new clean throw...

Love & Licks,

Sophie Brador said...

Pippa, I probably would not tickle your ears for you, but I might play bitey face if you let me, and I would definitely help you watch for cats.


Marvin said...

Oh I like your Funky Blog award Pippa!

Yes, you are quite right, these hoooooomans we are saddled with need plenty of training and educating in Canine Law.

You make a perfect Tutor, I hope your hooooomans appreciated your learnedness.

licks from Marvin xx

pee ess your nose looks very black and wet in the photos, you are obviously very healthy, a few more treats would be advised though.

The Army of Four said...

Congratulations on the award, Pippa! YEA!!! You totally deserve it!
I love your tickle pictures. My mom said she could almost feel your soft fur.
A normal, calm day here it at least 15 mph winds. Kansas is like that.

Momo & Pinot said...

Congratulations on the award, Pippa! Thanks for telling us how to train hoooomans! We should really try your technique!

Tasha & Eva said...

Darling Pippa,
We have determined that it is your mesmerizing eyes that have us so spellbound.

We don't get tickly ears but we do get ear rubs and silly Tasha likes it when Momma sticks her fingers in her ears. Tasha's ears, not Momma's.

Guinness & Shiloh's Family said...

Pippalovedog is a very good name for you. I wish I had thought of that myself. I do however adore your tickly ears and nose and wish that I could share your sofa and snose with you! You look so handsome in your tickly pictures. Mom loves to stroke my ears and kiss my nose - she is such a love muffin!

Love, Guinness

One of the pack said...


Great job on your award! When we want to go out and the humans aren't cooperating, we bark like crazy so they think there's something going on. They open the door and we're out before they can blink!

You look quite handsome with the tickle nose.

Happy Wednesday!

Natasha Fernz said...

Hey Pippa

Looks like you have your humans well trained!


BenTheRotti said...

Congratulations on the award Pippa, you certainly deserve it.

hmmm vomit, so thats how i would get mum to wash the throw on our sofa.. ours is dirty too.. Mum blames me for digging in the garden.. someone ought to tell her that is what dogs do.. and what mums *should* do is wash the throw and stop complaining!!

Ben xxxxx

Training a human is very, very hard work. But, it sounds like you made great progress in getting them trained to change your blankets.

Perhaps you should give lessons to other pups, because our human is sort of slow and we do not even think she is trainable.

The Husky in the Window said...

It was windy here too Pippa. I'm glad you got a clean blankent. The tickley ears had to be great. I hope you get to go outside this weekend.

Marla said...

Gus and Louie said...

Cashew said...

Hi Pippa,

Thanks for visiting my blog!

Boy you are a big dog. But, very handsome.

Most of my friends are litte like me, 'cuz I'm afraid of bigger dogs. But my Mom always encourages me to meet new dogs. Last summer I met Jupiter. At first I thought he was a horse! He was so big. But Mom explained that he really was a dog, something about being a Great Dane. We ended up playing together with a stick, so I wasn't so afraid after that!


scierzan said...

Pippa, you are so photogenic!

It must have been windy worldwide, because it was very gusty here in Chicago, too.

Enjoy your tickly ears!


Bella said...

Well if you can't go outside then the least they can do is snuggle and play scratchy ears on the Sofaw\.
You are my PippaLoveDog toooo :)

JB's Big World said...

That sure is a lot of tickling!
WE had wind here too, and so snowed again today....odd TX weather we are having.
Congrats on your award!

Bella said...

Pippa - there are now piccies on my post

Harry said...

I could have my ears tickled all day. If pa stops, I give him a good hard nose poke!

Kathryn and Ari said...

Pippa, have you considered making some training videos/dvds? Ari's had the worst luck getting her schooling to stick with me, and I'm sure she'd rush out and buy them if you marketed any such thing (she'd probably use my credit card, too).

Johann The Dog said...

Expert attention getter you are, BOL! I loved the bit about the dirty throw, we have one of those too. I love lying on it and roll around in the dirt.

Have a good weekend!
Woofs, Johann

Gus and Louie said...

Hey we have more snow pictures...

Abby said...

I'm afraid of loud thunder storms, but wind doesn't bother's awful fun to make a mess for humans to clean, isn't it?!?
Love the pictures of look like you did a lot of hard work.

The Zoo Crew said...

I am suspicious of the wind. I think someone might be coming to get my family with all that noise outside........


Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

Hi Pippa! We would lick your face if we were there!

3 Furballs said...

Hi Pippa,

I prefer to have my neck tickled for some reason. Any feet that sticks out, my neck will move to the feet hee hee.

Love your photos!
