Misery Mistress has been taking more extended blogging holidays again.

But in the meantime lots of pups have been sending me awards, and because she hasn't posted anything up, I got them lots of times over so I am pleased about that.

So thank you to:

Jazz and Dixie
Ben the Rotti
Guinness and Shiloh

Thanks everydog for those.

Anyway, Misery wants to write a little bit about DWB today so I suppose that is ok.

Just over a year ago, DWB News was started by Greg and Brooke, and I volunteered mistress to be a reporter as she has done that sort of thing in real life, and we became News Editor. This means I supervise and mistress writes and we busily look at other blogs to see what is going on.

Not just my best pals, we visit lots of dogs we don't know. We look for news, we look to see if they are still active, and we look to see if there is anything on the blogs that doesn't meet the ethos of Dogs with Blogs, ie offensive, or overtly commercial.

We enjoy doing this, it is always nice to read new blogs and sometimes make new friends too.

Some of you dogs out there have emailed us stories which you can do on the DWB News page sidebar, or some of you have left comments on my blog. We try to remember to acknowledge anyone who has sent us news when we write up the story. If we don't publish a story, we will try and let you know why, eg mistress has been on holiday, or the emails have played up, or whatever.

Mistress has written something about it on the Bone Zone here, but she thought it would be worth a mention here too. So, if you know about any news, please drop us a quick email to either DWB News here, or leave a comment on my blog. So many pups have joined DWB in the last year that we thought some may not be aware of the News and it is a good way to keep up to date with what is happening.

Anyway, this is my blog so here is a bit about me.

Pizza that I got for breakfast. Finally. Mistress stole my jalapeno chillies though. Something about maybe they might not be good for me. Hmmmmm.

And look at my stylish pose this morning. I rather like that front left paw. I can't remember why I put it like that though.

OK, hope you are all well.

Pippa the Snoozing Nooz Editor.

Hello Pippa,
I come to say hi to you, what a pawsome blog you have here.
Now that I knew you have supervised your mistress writes and looks at other blogs to see what is going on.
Just in case you have not looked at my blog, I'm still twice weekly active and nothing on my blog that is offensive or overtly commercial, hehe!
Thanks for being the News Editor and looking after us. I appreciate your hard works!

We were getting worried where you'd gone to, you really must keep your mistress in check and make sure she keeps your blog updated before anything else she tells you she has to do.
Licks and licks,
Sal and Jasp
PS. congrats on the awards

Hi Pippa. everyone has been eating pizza, and we are soo jealous.

I think you are posing like that for a nice head shot for your next movie.

The OP Pack said...

Good to see woo, Pippa, cute pic with the paw thingie. We would love to taste a pizza like that one - look at all those yummies on top of it.

Woos and wags, the OP Pack

Kathryn and Ari said...

Pippa, we think you should withhold pizza peppers and fetching photo poses until Mistress shapes up wiht her blogging. We think this lag is unacceptable, and we know you agree. I hope she is at least plying you with LOTS of buttered toast in absolution.

Lorenza said...

Hola Pippa!
Mistress tiene un gran trabajo escribiendo para el DWB News. Visitar todos los blogs es algo casi imposible para mi mama, por mucho que trata!
Espero que hayas tenido un bonito fin de semana!

Randi said...

Awww Pippa Darling...I sure miss you...& I'm going to practice that doga pose you are probably don't even realize it ..but you are well on your way to becoming a doga guru...that is one fancy doga pose..

so happy you FINALLY had pizza...looks yummy..

I miss you...

love & licks,

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Pippa,
You are lucky.. at least you get to supervise your mistress when she is writing your blog. I TRY to do that but my mom is just beyond control.. sometimes she 'steals' my blog and write her own stuff. But I don't really mind though cos sharing is good, right?
Ohhh... your pizza.. ** licks lips**.. wanna share??

Oooooooooonie said...

Your pizza looks very tasty dear Pippa. I am glad you didn't eat the Jalepenos, take it from me they burn your mouth something awful.

I think your paw is amazing, I think from its position you do all the typing as well as the reporting.

Misery Mistress will be redundant very shortly.

Your friend

DWB News is a very good idea. You and your Mistress do an excellent job. It is good that someone is keeping an eye on all that is going on via the Dog Blogs.

Pippa Mistress is worse then my mom. I feel for you buddy I do. Oh and can we get the news thing for our blog. Mom is an idiot as you know and she is sure there is some code she needs but can't find because when she clicks get this widget it doesn't take her to get the news one.

Congrats on your award, and I know how it is getting help on our blogs....same problems I have too with my assistant. But at least you got pizza! How exciting to be a nooz editor! I am sure you are an excellent writer. Maybe you have writer's cramp in your paw in that picture??

The Army of Four said...

Hi hi, Pippa! Congratulations on the awards! You certainly deserve them!
I've never been allowed to have pizza, but Mom sometimes lets me taste the cheese when she makes it - just to make sure it's OK! :) And Davy LIKES those hollow-peen-yoes. He's from Texas. I think that explains it.

Kapp pack said...

That pizza looks really yummy! We only get the crusts around here!

TTFN, Meadow

Hi Pippa...
You are Mistress are excellent reporters. I so wish my Mom would get out and visit folks more often but she's whining about having to work or something - whatever!!! I just love that last pose of yours...have you considered a career in modeling?

Lots of Licks, Ruby
