Busy, busy, busy and National Day

I have been sooooo busy, what with printing my business cards, decorating my GibKennelFlat and - National Day. Anyway, more of the other stuff later, here are my National Day photos.

Oh for any pup who doesn't know, Gibraltar celebrates National Day on 10 September and we all dress up in red and white, which are our national colours.

Normally I don't dress up. At all. But I don't like to be upstaged and it seemed that rather a lot of pups were getting into the swing of it all. So not wanting to be left out, I donned a rather macho vest of master's.

I think I will have something more discrete next time though. Perhaps a red harness, or a small red and white scarf tucked into my harness. Wearing vests indeed.

Ah yes, discreet, this is what I like. Subtlety. Nothing over the top. Tasteful too.

A flower - of course, any excuse to put flowers on my blog. Even if it is red.

A car seems to have found its way in here too, just because it is the right colour is no excuse.

You look very nice and distinguished in your vest...and much more macho than if you'd chosen the fairy wings that little girl was wearing.

That's alot of red & white! You look really good in your vest! Your National Day is my mom's birthday! Now she will always remember National Day on her birthday :P

Oh, PIPPA! I think you look VERY handsome in your vest! VERY handsome, indeed!
I sort of celebrate Gibraltar's National Day every day... what with being red and white myself. Hee hee hee!

I like the fairy wings but then I am a princess.

The vest does make you look very dapper.

I hate the whole dressing up scenario Pippa, but sometimes a Dog has to do what a Dog has to do!

I thought you looked very smart in Master's vest, although I wondered whether Misery Mistress had shrunk it by putting it into the tumble drier!!

My J liked the photo of the Mini, she has a history of owning Minis, too boring for my comment, suffice to say she has owned four of them in the past. Although not all at the same time. ;0D

Thank goodness, the garage bills were enough for one of the bloomin' things.

I agree with Momo and Pinot - that could have been Canada Day! Master's vest doesn't look too comfortable but you look very handsome in it! It's great that you celebrated your National Day. What's a national holiday without the local dogs joining in the festivities?


Amber and Nala said...

Very cute! Love all the ladies with white pants and red shirts walking their dioggies with red vests! :) Your vest looks so fabulous on you Pippa!
