Snooze update

Whoops. That should say News update. I think I have snoozing on the brain.

I wanted to let pups know that I have stepped down from my role as DWB Snooze - I mean - News Editor.

As Misery Mistress needs to sort out the computer, or rather the compatibility between the computer and the printer, I reluctantly decided that we can't really commit to updating the news when we don't have the time for it right now.

It's not just the News. As well as looking for news stories, we also have to patrol the blogs to make sure that dogblogs are still in existence, that they meet the values and ethics of DWB, and to check for any major changes - such as members who need to be moved to Daisy Chain status.

And I would like to apologise to any pups out there who may have sent news via the email on the News website. Misery trashed all her emails and account info the last time she uninstalled her operating system so we have not been able to check on any potential news stories that might be waiting there. Sorry about that pups.

What else? Some of you have been asking about the movie project. Well, like everything else, it is on the back burner until the hardware/software probs are sorted. Sadly.

When Misery finished her 50,000 word novel - which was NOT about me - some of you suggested she should write a story which involved me. So I am thinking about maybe having another blog to map out the movie stuff, and write a nice long PippaStory.

But not yet. Misery has far too many blogs anyway. And if I let her start another one right now, she will never sort out the computer issues. She will be tap tap tapping away merrily all day instead of getting on with fixing.

So if we aren't around for a while - we are fixing. And if we are around, that means I haven't put my paw down firmly enough, and she is still putting off the fixing. I'll keep you updated on her lack of progress.

I think every pup will understand, that is a big job for one pup to keep up on. Have a great day.

We will miss your consistancey but we understand the problem. We hope the computer problems get fixed soon and to your acceptance.

We took a break too and now Mom is getting her act together to update the Randomizer code. There are SO MANY new members!

Thank you for all of your hard work with DWB. We have been better informed because of you (and the Mistress).

You've got to do what you've got to do.

Mason Dixie said...

I'm not sure I understand? I should not post pictures on my blog of things other than me? or not at all?

Amber said...

Hi Pippa! Mom and I have been enjoying your blog! We love your GotThem Day story...we are happy you and your family found each other. Also, that is very cool that your Mom had a RR. :)

One question thoug, what is Daisy Chain Status??


Jacks, Narra, Tuchuck, and Rousseau said...

Ah, Pippa, the things dogs have to put up with... Humans can be so feeble, can't they?

BTW, Narra would love to have you and Wally both here to enjoy the mountains with her. She is tiring of her juvenile companions (the four-legged ones). ;)


Noah the Airedale said...

Oh wow Pippa, your mum sure sounds busy at the moment. We hope she sorts the computer out.

Franki V said...

So glad that I found you, dear Pippa. My human tells me that Pippa has always been one of her favourite names. My human loves names such as Crispen, Axelrod, Janetta, Marketta and Rodney.
Angus and Hermione are also favourites. The world is filled with wonderful names. Carry on, dear Pippa.:-)

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Pippa, we just saw your comment on the old blog and we have had that old address for almost 2 years. We started blogging in April 2007 and Mom typed it wrong from the beginning. Then some advertising stuff was on the correct spelling. Then Mom found it was available so she grabbed it and moved everything over there. We hope you have updated your links page to go to the new and improved Dachsies Rule!

The sooner your Mistress gets it fixed the better I guess! ;) Computers are great except for when they don't work!

I hope you will get fixed soon!

Kathryn and Ari said...

Why a novel when we can have more screenplays about you Pippa? You're far too handsome for the printed page--and I say that as a writer in love with books. We say, bring on the big screen.
