On the road again

I have been a busy Pippadog travelling up and down to my finca again. I knew we were going because Misery was carrying bags with her when we went out for a walk, so I quickly pulled Master towards my Landy so we could get in and set off.

When we got there I did boundaround.

I bounded through the house, through the sitting room, and the dining room and into the kitchen. Then I bounded back through again, and back once more.

And when Misery opened the kitchen door for me, I bounded out onto my terrace and bounded up and down there a few times. Then I went to lie down at my gates.

I don't really have any space to play boundaround in my Gibkennelflat, the most I can really do is a few leaps into the air to help myself to food in people's hands or from their plates - although sadly I don't seem very successful at this.

It was very warm at my finca, so mostly I lay on my terrace in the mornings and the evenings. When it started getting towards lunchtime I went inside and lay in my den under my table. And sometimes I went to my sofa.

Misery and Master seemed to be busy doing something each morning called Paying Bills, but when they came back home from that we all went on my terrace again.

And that's it really. We didn't do any geocatzing, and I didn't manage to chase any ordinary catz either. I did eye up one of the local pups and warned him off my path. We went for some walks up the hill and said hello to the horse and foal.

It was very hot on the way back down to Gibflat. At my finca there was a sea fret and everything was very still and quiet, but as soon as we left the coast and went slightly inland onto the motorway, the sun was shining brightly in a clear blue sky. Master and Misery have started to take a couple of the toll roads as well, and they go further inland, cutting through the high mountains. It was windy too, so even though we had windows and vents open, the breeze was hot.

We stopped at one of the rest areas for a leg stretch, some sandwiches, and my favourite crisps, Lays Artesanas made with olive oil.

I howled and jumped around because Master and Misery weren't giving me enough. Misery had bought two small bags of crisps, I think she should have bought three. One for me on my very own, and then one each for them that I could have shared as well because I eat faster than them.

Then we all had a drink. But it was too hot for my feeties on the pavement so I started dancing around.

Master quickly opened my Landy door so I could climb back inside and Misery brought my little water bowl for me to drink on my Landy sofa.

When the toll road finished, we took the coast road for the rest of the journey, and the breeze was much fresher, so we all cooled down a little.

And then we arrived home in Gib.

Did you get to meet the big puppies? We've seen them on the way to grandma's house but Dad wouldn't stop so that I could sniff them!

How exciting! Boundarounds are the most fun!!!
And I heartily concur on the chip (um, I mean crisp) situation.

What an exciting, adventurous life! Sigh. And so handsome, too!

The OP Pack said...

That sounds like quite the adventurous time you had. Are those crisps like what we call potato chips? We love them and always want Mom to share hers with us.

How nice of the bipeds to put you and your water in the cool Landy.

woos, the OP Pack

oh no Cats then? I am so sorry to read this news.

your pictures are lovely, and I particularly like the one of you with the water bowl in your Landy!

Your Finca garden looks cool and delightful, do you want me to fly over and hunt out some felines for you to geocatz? I am somewhat an expert hunter you know?

Wow, looks like you had a ton of fun! Momster loved the pics of the horsies. :)

What a fun trip! We don't have those kind of chips over here...they look yummy! I liked the picture of you eyeing the local dog. ;)

Hellooooo, Pippa! You sure get around, buddy, you're soooo lucky! We love the ocean--at least we think we would. :) Do love that harness, too.

Hope you're well!

that looks like a great trip! How I envy such road trips. Our country's too small for such fun stuff... we can travel from one end of the island to the other in less than 2 hours!

Not sure what is up with the Marvin Meister, but he is not at all well this morning.

If it continues I will take him to the Vet tomorrow.
