Beds and boats

Mistress says she has been busy.

I don't know what that means except she has not done Pippadogblog.

Master and mistress have swapped sides of the bed ie the floor that they sleep on because mistress still hasn't bothered to buy a bed.

Hardworking-master found it hard to walk over mistress in the morning to get to the door.

Myself, I didn't find it a problem. Hey, if mistress is in the way I just walk on her legs, or whack her on the chest, or just do a few bows to master generally on top of her.

But master decided he wanted to move sides.

So now, I am very careful because naturally I don't want to walk on master. I tippy toe round the side to do my good morning bow down greetings.

Mistress of course has lost the picture to go with this. Perhaps it is on my other computer. But she has found some others that she had forgotten about.

So first here is a picture of my friend who went to the Rainbow Bridge a few weeks ago. He was a GSD and he lived with Penny and Ian. Master told Penny and Ian that we would put a piccy up to remember him.

You can see what a friendly dog he was and he was quite old too, I think he was 15.

When Penny and Ian went away for a little holiday, he became poorly, so they cancelled their holiday and went straight back home to look after him, but it must have been time for him to go to the bridge.

Pooh. Sad Pippadog.

Mistress also found a couple of cruise ships.

Here is one.

And here is another.

I think I would like some close-ups please mistress to decide whether or not they would be suitable for my film project.

I have also had lots of ace suggestions from you all so I will put those up next time, so that everypup can see how things are developing.

While on the subjects of ships and boats, master and I went for a nice long walk down to the marina without Misery.

Master got himself a beer and we sat outside in the sunshine for ages. Lots of people came to talk to me. All the people I had met before remembered my name and walked over to speak to me.

"Look, there's Pippa," said one group and dashed across. Master couldn't for the life of him remember seeing them before. Silly master. Of course we had seen them before because they knew me.

It just goes to show how important us dogs are when people remember our names and want to speak to us.

Here is a shot of the marina. You can't see me on this but it is a nice picture so I will allow mistress to put it up and it shows where we sit on the opposite side where the buildings are.

And here I am sniffing the flower beds and looking.

Making sure Misery isn't sneaking up.

Pippa! Maybe you are already famous, even before your film premiere, and that's why everyone knows your name.


Randi said...

Hi Dear Darling Pippadog...I've missed you...& of course everyone knows your are the FAMOUS SPANISH PIPPA...Your master is very silly...& mistress even sillier for not taking more pics of you.

I'm still thinking of the best way to do your PR for the big movie...I'll work on it more once my mom/secretary returns from her trip.

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend who went to the bridge...he was beautiful...Please give my love to his peoples.

Love & Licks,

Dear Pippa,
Another news-packed blog post! We're really sorry to hear about your friend; that must be very sad for you and the humans. We always take it very hard when one of our animal friends dies. It sounds like you have been finding good solace in all the activity at the house and around town. Maybe you would consider sharing your very roomy sofa with the mistress so that she no longer has to sleep on the floor?

The Army of Four said...

I'm SO sorry to hear about your friend, Pippa! Mom says we never have enough time with our loved ones. :(

One of the pack said...


You are looking dapper as always. What a lovely tribute to your friend. Much sadness befalls us as we lose our playmates. You have a beautiful walking area, and the boats are definitely cool (even from a distance). Of course the humans remember you! We know who's the important one.

So sorry to hear about your friend.

Sometimes mom wishes she lived closeby to the water...those pictures are beautiful :)


Jackson said...

Hey Pips, how's things? Sorry I haven't been by for a while but J1 is being very lax about typing for me lately. If only I had her as well trained as you do your Mistress. Very sorry to read about your pal. J x

Tasha & Eva said...

Darling Pippa,
We've missed you so much. Mistress shouldn't stay away for so long. We also found a yacht for you that we showed a picture of a few post ago. But first I think you need to come over and hold Tasha's paw. She's having a ruff time right now.


Lorenza said...

Hola Pippa!
Me da mucho gusto verte de nuevo!
Siento mucho lo de tu amigo!

Orable & Charlie said...

Flowers and ships are good things for melancholy. Looks like you have some good diversions. Don't be too sad about your friend. I will tell him you miss him when I see him. (I'm fourteen)


Kapp pack said...

You look very handsome and wolf-like in that last photo!

Woo woo, Kelsey Ann

JB's Big World said...

Oh Pippa,
I wish your mistress was not so busy. I miss you! Those are nice cruise ships....just make sure they are not the kind that sink....I don't like getting my furs wet. Mom says that is a beautiful marina. You live in such a great place!

JB's Big World said...

Oh, I wanted to also say that your friend looked super friendly and I am sure you miss him.

Helios said...

Your friend looks very nice and friendly. So sad he had to go to the bridge, but my M says 15 is a very good age for a dog, although she hopes it can be way longer than that.

PS: I don't see no problem in stepping over human bodies. I don't know why they like to make a big fuss about that.

Simba said...

Sorry to hear about your friend. The cruise ships are huge.

Peanut said...

Hi Pippa

So sorry about your friend. I am sure he's in a better place now


wally said...

Hello Pippa,

I am very sorry about your friend. He was quite lovely and I always like to hear stories of dogs who are much loved by their peoples.

My ape has been terrible about helping me to blog and to visit my friends which makes me SO MAD. And Ethel has been pining for you.


Marvin said...

They were lovely pictures of your friend Pippa. I am sorry he went to the Bridge. I hope he is running free now.

love and licks, Marvin xxxxx

Cara said...

sorry about your friend.
The ships are a bit bigger than the boat I have just been on for my holidays.

Johann The Dog said...

So sad to hear about your friend, Pippa!

Woofs, Johann

Charlie said...

Your friend looks like he was a very handsome GSD, Pippa (but of course not as handsome as you.) It was very thoughtful of you to remember him on your blog!

Freda said...

Hi Pippas,

Soo sorrys to here abouts your GSD friend. He looks like he was a reeeallys cooools "c-a-t". If you knows what I means.

I wish my peeps slept closers to me. No... maybes not. Then ∆≈ would be hoggin' MY beds! Ya, betters he stays where he is. He's a stupids sleeper but he does give me a bellys rub every lights. Guess he's not so bads.

I'd get soo confused if my peeps traded sides. How do you copes?




Hey Pippa we know the feeling! Our mum has been too busy with work so we haven't been able to do our blog or visit our friends for about two weeks! Sorry to hear about your friend. He looked like a gentle old soul.
The marina looks fantastic in that photo - maybe you will have to include that in your film.

Chef said...

Hola Pippa. I'm sure you miss your dear friend but he is happy now and jumping over clouds. It must be so nice to live so close to the water. Those are great pictures.
xoxo Chef

P.S. Have you heard about the International Goody Exchange. Check out my blog... maybe you can post something to help spread the news. Thanks, Pippa!

JB's Big World said...

Hi Pippa,
My mom has been busy too, or so she says. But if you give a great big pouty face, maybe mistress will help you blog? That is what I do to my mom.

Chef said...

Pippa, have you heard about the International Goody Exchange? Go to my blog for details and see if you want to pawticipate. Beasley and I have organized the biggest goody exchange in blogland.
