Chasing pirates - I wish

I was going to make some announcements but it has taken Misery so long to get around to writing this that I have forgotten some of them.

1) Misery is considering messing around with some of her blogs. I think instead of considering that and doing nothing about it she would be better off employed writing on mine. Anyway I know that some of your humans have a looky at her blogs, so if she ever gets round to doing anything I will put up a new linky. The Landy one will stay as it is, it is the other two she is thinking about revamping or maybe combining. Or something.

2) One of my favourite and most loyal girlfriends Randi the Lab/Newf has some nasty lumpies that need to come out, so paws crossed for Randi that everything goes smoothly. Randi also gave me a wonderful shout out on her blog the other week, so thank you for that Randi.

3) I met some super Americans the other night. They were on a coastguard ship chasing pirates around the world. How brave of them. They told master it was not an easy job at all. They knew straightaway that I was a cross-husky and immediately came to give me big hugs and kisses. They even asked if they could take me home with them, but Master was having none of that. Shame though, just think how many dogpals in America I would have been able to visit. And I would have been able to join in the pirate chase too – what an adventure. I think Master was rather grumpy not to let me go with them.

Here I am looking at a map of Africa and thinking about chasing pirates.

Here I am looking at a map of Africa and I appear to be falling asleep.

4) Speaking of huskiness, I gave a very big HAROOOOO the other day. Mistress was very surprised because I don't usually bark or woo or haroo. But she had such a nice sandwich with sage and onion slices, and artichokes and beans in mustard dressing, and lettuce that I wanted it. So I thought the best way to demand it was to Haroo. Loudly. Silly Misery said 'Was that a haroo Pippa?' Of course it was. Now give me the sandwich. And I gave another quieter but very assertive haroo. I got a little bit of sandwich, I usually get the end bits when she starts getting fed up with it. Not enough for my excellent haroos though. So I shan't haroo any more unless I get reasonable rewards.

And here is a silly picture that Misery took of me in my table den. (Note to Misery - I think you should polish my table den before you post pictures of it on the internet).

Edited to add: We have just started to go and visit some of our friends and sadly see that our friend Rocky died at the weekend. Many of you have already visited but if not you can find his blog here - RockStar and Company. Our condolences to Mike and the beautiful Mahti.

The Army of Four said...

Way to act like you're napping! We all know you were planning something really cool - you just can't let the bipeds catch you at it!
Tail wags,

Fred said...

I would like to hear one of your haroos...perhaps the next one could be recorded--with a proper reward, of course? Also, your map of Africa is very informative. :P

Princess Eva and Brice said...

Darling Pippa,
Is your inner husky starting to come out?

We are sorry to hear about Rocky. We'll make sure to stop by.

The OP Pack said...

That's a great pic of you under your table den. Were you guarding the sandals?

Sorry to hear about your friend Rocky - too much of that sad stuff going on.

Woos, the OP Pack

Guinness & Shiloh's Family said...

Oh darling Pippa,
we are very sad about dear Rocky.
I especially would like to hear you haroo - I'll bet it would just melt my heart

Love & Snoses,
Guinness Grrl - who can also haroo just as good as a husky

Marvin The Minted One said...

oh dearest Pipparoonie! I am most upset, I thought perhaps I would be first to comment!!

However, I possibly have lost track of time, having had to spend much time having my fur cleansed of a revolting wad of chewing gum. What with one thing and another just lately, it is not my summer methinks!

My J says she meant to email your Misery about the blog merging subject, she has given it much thought, in between combing out my chewing gum fur....

I am very sorry to read about Randi's probs, we are friends so I will call in and say get well soonios.

Also sorry to read about Rocky. we did not know him or his blog but every loss is a very sad time indeed.

Our condolences to Mike and Mahti.

Pirates, well I think you missed out on a grrrreat adventure. Were there any Cat Pirates, that would have been the best fun ever eh?

oh and my J and I went travelling today, and we saw a Husky running free on the streets of the Lang Toon.

I will explain more later in an email. Suffice to say, said Husky was Haroooooooing!

Lots of love, Marvin Who Tastes of Spearmint...........

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

Only speaking for ourselves, of course, we'd rather visit YOU! Even better if we can do it aboard ship! Will you HAROOOOO us across the strait?!


Asta said...

You awe looking especially handsome today!
I will cwoss my paws fow Randi and will visit youw fwiends' family
smoochie kisses

Brownie said...

Pippa, your blog is the most important one! Your mom should fugget about the other blogs in my humble opinion! It would have been super exciting to have been a pirate... maybe your Master will let you be one some day!

Lorenza said...

I'd love to hear you Harooo!
Kisses and hugs

Charlie said...

I'm sure your Harooo is quite commanding. Perhaps you should try it with cats?

Pedro said...


You should have joined those pirate hunters. I could have met you when they got back to the US! Sorry about your friend Rocky. It's so sad to lose friends. Ziggy doesn't haroo but sometime he talks which is kinda like a haroo. It usually has something to do with food too.


Noah the Airedale said...

G'day Pippa,
Crikey those Americans you met sound very brave indeed. We couldn't imagine hunting pirates. That is very dangerous work. Imagine how many pirate butts you could have bitten if you'd gone along for the adventure.
We hope you have a great weekend Pippa. We love all the photos your lovely self btw!!!

Mason Dixie said...

I too would love to hear you sing. =)

Jake of Florida said...

We would have given anything to hear that HAROO!!! Perhaps the next time, Misery can record it and post it along with a video of the sandwich. No onion though.

As for chasing pirates -- remember, we are right here on the southeast coast of the USA -- so if you do go a huntin', we'll be right here awaitin'.

Please tell Misery that our heron-cam appreciated her comments on his reportage -- and may just hop over to check out her blog-merging efforts.

We don't HAROO, but we do WROOF WROOF AWROOF!!!

Wirey wroofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Kasha said...

Falling asleep on a map of Africa? So cute! Are you looking for me?

Amber and Nala said... that would be an adventure! I think you would have missed your humans greatly though. :) Wish I could have heard your it was great! :)


Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Pippa, we are having such troubles with our Mom and getting her to update our blog too. It might have been fun to chase pirates but do those sailors have internet connections so they could update your blog? If not, maybe it is best that you stayed with Master. Eventually, Misery will tell us more about what you are doing. Hopefully before she polishes the table leg.

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

Comet and BLU said...

Chasing pirates sounds like a fun time. Too bad you didn't get to go.

Our girl has been ok (albeit a little slow) with updating our blog but has fallen miserably behind in letting us visit our friends.

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

So glad you are back. And so glad I can spell properly.

There were many times in the sentence above I could have made serious mistakes...........

If you are going pirate hunting you had better work on your sniper skills. :)
