Merry Christmas

Well, everypup, I hope you are having/had/will have a good Christmas.

I had a fine Christmas Eve. Master came home from the supermarket with some provisions and mistress helpfully left them on the bread board.

Naturally when she went out for a few other things I jumped up and found some nice wholemeal rolls.

I took them down carefully and put them on the floor, and then took them out of the plastic bag and started to eat them.

But I realised something was missing, so I jumped back up again and found the butter dish. I carefully took that onto the floor too, without breaking it, and licked it out.

What a treat.

Mistress came back in after about half an hour and thoughtfully took away the plastic bag. So then I decided to lie down and enjoy my last bread roll in comfort. Yum. Yum. After all, it wasn't much use to them full of Pippa slobber, was it?

Santa helps those who help themselves, say I.

Oh and we went out for a walk this evening, but I didn't feel like posing.

And no, Mistress has still not sorted her computer or done any holiday cards.

Christmas Day morning. Snooooooooooze.


Best foot forward for my Christmas Day photoshoot.


Where is master?


Oh. Here he is. Have we finished now?

Hello Pips!

So thoughtful of you to prepare your own Christmas dinner. I am sure Santa will reward you heartily.

We will be posting about our X-mas dinner spread soon. Tastyables! Well, the apes ate mostly fruitables and vegetables but your mistress might be interested in the rabbit food.

Merry Christmas Pippa! Rolls and butter (or at least butter) sounds like a delightful treat. We hope you and your family had a wonderful holiday.

It's too bad you didn't live closer Sweet Pippa....we could have had
'a tete a tete' over the big bird my mom roasted over here yesterday. :)

I'm so happy your mom & you rated my blog. That meant a lot to me.

Big smooches,

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

Pippa! How clever of you not to break the dish! That way tey can refill it for you. The first time Tank counter surfed he broke the dish and got yelled at so now we are very careful with the dishes as well.

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

My Ma had a friend once, he was called Roland Butter.

She tells me she is a woman of many personages.

I am pleased you grabbed some good stuff from your counter surfing.

I managed a particularly tasty sausage outside of the butchers shop on Christmas Eve....it was yummy. My Pa said I looked like a dog with a cigar hanging out his mouth.

My Jeannie says she loves Fleetwod Mac track. Also she has a friend called Russel Sprout.

I say her jokes are wearing thin.

Love and late Christmas Licks, Marvin xxxxxxxx Who has a lot to bear, or is it bare, well whatever, I have to suffer in the name of art.

Marv xxxxxxxxxx

Scarlett said...

I would have a flounce Pippa!

Happy Christmas to you and yours.

I will reply later to the emails, my computer has been totally occupied by alien people who are visiting Taramasalata Halls.

Rhett (Butler) said...

If you are referring to me, as an alien, frankly my dear I don't give a damn.

Hi Pippa!

My ma ape says that the wheat meat WAS seitan. A mixture of seitan (wheat gluten) and tofu wrapped around a stuffing of squashes and fruitables. She said it was tasty but then she's fond of the non-meatables and eats quite a bit of seitan.

ps. Ethel thinks you're quite lovely in those pho-tos.

Oh Pippa, You live the most charmed life of any dog I know. Maybe I can move in with you.

Huskee and Hershey said...

I must say that I am impressed!! Your mom should be so proud of you that you know how to prepare your own dinner! Some peanut butter would be nice too...

Marvin said...

er....Pippa, she has come to terms with spiders, but flying cockies, oh dearie me, she thinks they sound rather interesting if not enjoyable......

She needs explanation otherwise her mind is going into fantasy mode!
