Pippa goes to Jumpers

I took master and mistress out for a walk the other day.

I thought we could do a reconstruction of the Italian where we ate the other night and I could add it to my repertoire of reviewed restaurants. (I am going in for alliteration at the moment as well).

Anyway it was shut and all the tables and chairs were piled away. So we wandered up and down the nice promenade and I did lots of sniffs, and then we explored the bastion.

Then I realised I didn't know what a bastion was.

Here we are:

a projecting part of a fortification built at an angle to the line of a wall, so as to allow defensive fire in several directions.

Yes, that describes it well.

Here are master and I practising not looking at the camera after taking our lessons from Ao4. Ammy, I hope you think we are doing ok here.

And again. I think we are learning quite fast.

We had a fine walk around Jumpers Bastion. And then we went back along the promenade.

Exploring the wall on the promenade.

Hmmm. I see a little dog.

See the peep-oo holes for the guns to poke through when people were trying to attack Gibraltar?

Happy Pippa.

There is always something interesting to look at.

No, it's not my tongue (at least I don't think it is), it's a flower.

Having a good sniff, lots of interesting smells and pee-mails.

I see mistress has snuck in a naughty flower shot for my last picture. Thought I had cured her of that habit.

Darling Pippa,
It's always nice to see you taking Master out somewhere interesting for a walk. I have to see if I can find somewhere historical to take Dad. He loves that kind of stuff.

Basking at the Bastion brings beautiful smiles to Pippa's followers.

What a wonderful afternoon stroll. Great job ignoring the camera. You look especially strong and handsome at the Bastion.

Loving Life,

Hola Pippa! Nice to see such a beautiful smile on your face. You really enjoyed that walk, didn't you? You are so bella!



Hi Pippa,
That was a great walk you had and very informative for us readers as well with the usual great pictures.
Are you sure that's a flower in that pic with you sniffing the flowers?

Hi Pippa, great to meet you.
All this blogging stuff is new to me, but I am making a list of all my doggy friends.
I will add you to my list.

Randi said...

Love & Licks,

The Army of Four said...

Oooh, I think those are perfect pictures from your promenade! :) How did I do with that alliteration thingie?
Really well done. Stormy is proud of you!

Kathryn and Ari said...

It looks like you had a fabulous time at the bastion, but we are very sorry to hear that you were not able to eat at the Italian restaurant, especially since they tend to have very tasty buttered bread there. Please tell mistress we enjoyed the flower shot. You should try to be accomodating of her aesthetic impulses now and again.

Guinness & Shiloh's Family said...

It's too bad that you couldn't review the Italian food. Our mom cooks Italian all of the time and we get samples sometimes too. Thanks for the good thoughts for Dunkin. I wish I could be there to sniff the flowers with you.

Love, Guinness

I had no idea what a bastion was. I do now.

Hi from, the social network for dog owners and dog lovers.

We're looking for members with quality dogs and 'tails' to tell to add stuff to our dog lovers site.

Hope you have time to have a look at us.


Jake of Florida said...

Thanks for stopping by. And even more thanks for letting us know about Ms. Snickers, and about the Kapp Family's new pup.

We appreciate all you do in addition to inspecting bastions reviewing restaurants, and trying to defend your blog against floral invasions!!

Woof, pal!!!

That is an interesting flower so I will forgive your secretary. You look quite dashing. I saw a dog on the teevee the other day who looked like you but I don't remember what kind it was.


ps. Ethel is enamored of her brother. I'm not sure what to make of it.

Eva said...

I just visited your beautiful friend Wilma. She is very pretty and has such interesting places to walk.
