Back from hols

We have been on hols. But actually I don't think I understand what that means. Master took a week off work, Mistress took a week off faffing around on the computer, and we went back to my finca.

Life seemed the same as normal to me. Walks, no cats to chase, food, and lying on my terrace.

Master and Mistress spent all their time tidying the garden and painting the outside walls. Now Master normally paints during the week, and gets paid for it, so why would he do that on 'holiday' for free? Humans are beyond me. Mistress even mopped out the house.

They went geocatzing one morning. Apparently it was too hot for me to go so I stayed inside my cool house. Mistress may write about it on her own blog. She is still toying with starting a new one.

Oh, and it was their birthdays too. There were some nice messages from some DWB friends on FB so Misery says thanks for that.

Now we need to spend the rest of the week visiting friends and catching up. I was so sad to read about Dakota and our hearts are with the Op Pack. JB and her family are also in our thoughts with their sad story about Bear. And to end on a good note, my good friend Randi had some good results with her surgery. I guess there is more to read on all your blogs so this is a short post today with a few pix from my 'holidays',

At my gate with some of Misery's pretty flowers. No more flowers on MY blog - the rest will be consigned to hers.

Me again, happy.

Me supervising Misery painting while Master was out.

Oh, look, my walls have been painted here. About time too.

A rather nice profile shot I think. (I look even better bigger)

Gosh, it is so tiring lying on my terrace.

Just surveying my terrace and feeling important.

Having a good sniff to see who - or what - is around.

Come on Master, give ME some cheese on toast.

That friendly face didn't work. A more assertive one was called for.

Lying inside my cool house while they clear off cycling, or geocatzing or something.

Stopping for chips/crisps/patatas fritas at the rest area on the autovia on the way back to Gib. YUM!

Sometimes it is OK to just relax on holidays, Pippa. You are looking very content and beautiful in all your photos. Nothing wrong with adding some flowers, they just enhance your magnificence.

Hope some one of your faces got you some treats.

Thank you for your kind words for Dakota.

Oh, handsome Pippa! I missed you! You look quite wonderful in these photos.

I was going to ask what the blue flowers were, trailing over your patio wall in that first shot...

....but I better not.
Hee hee hee.

What a lucky guy you are Pippa! We're having a crummy summer here in Canada. Lots of rain. Lots of bugs. Not swimming as much as I should be.

Keep smiling baby!

Marvin said...

Welcome baCK Pippa!

I have sorely missed you and your tales, or even your tail. Oooops sorry I am in somewhat a frisky mooderoonie today!

I think you are possibly the most hnadsome dog I have ever seen, you get better with every passing blog post picture.

Belated Happy Birthdays to your Misery and Master, how organised of them to have their barkdays together.

I have been feeling very tired just lately, due to the unaccustomed heat we are suffering, no sorry, enjoying here.

And have been quite decorative in the house, a bit too decorative for my J's liking though!

You look fit and well, and the suggestion of cheese on toast has now taken a hold of my J who is off to make some right now!

lotsaluv, Marvin xxxxxx

Happy belated birthday to Misery and Master.

Brownie said...

Pedro said...


It looks like you had a nice and restful holiday (even if your humans painted and mopped!) You should teach them how to relax on vacation!


Scarlett said...

Hola, or whatever it is Pipparoonie!

Hope you are having a great day.........

Things here in the deep South are troubled.

As dear Rhett says, a computer keyboard without the ass, (please bark between the lines here dearest Pippa) is truly the.....I see I need say no more.
