A few answers

First up - a response to some of the questions from my commenters.

Inquisitive WFTs the handsome Floridians J&JH want to know how I am doing, as did the gorgeous husky Op Pack, and M&B sent their good wishes for my health too.

So, the tablets have finished which is a shame in a way as I was getting extra tasties before my breakfast to - supposedly - disguise the tabs. But Misery had the bright idea of adding slices to my food anyway even when the tabs were finished. Kind Misery.

But for some reason I seemed to develop a nasty sore at the top of one of my back legs and tried to yank out my fur around it. Master and Misery put some anti-septic spray on it and yes - promptly drove me back to nice Pedro.

He cut off my fur, sprayed the icky bit, and then rubbed some cream on. He gave Misery the spray, and sent her off to the pharmacist with a prescription for a small tube of ointment. It is drying up now I think, but I have included some pix of it looking nasty. And of me looking nice of course.

Pedro said I was looking better and had put on some weight, so he seemed pleased with my progress. I will have a blood test in a few months time and see if those nasty e-things are gone.

Quick reply to JB - seems HULA operatives can be any breed. Or, gasp!!! even - CATZ!! So go for it. But you have to provide evidence that you fulfil the criteria. I bet you don't. I ask you, CATZ get everywhere!

Now Randi asked if I got her holiday card. Well, I hadn't when she asked but it arrived only the next day. What a coincidence. And in the same week, I had received a card from JB and her feline family, and the last one to arrive the other day was a wonderful one of Santa Umbrella in Florida from Jake and Just Harry. That was two cards in one as it had a pic of them inside it too.

Now, I have a theory. I think that cards posted to me from America go to Gibraltar in America. Gibraltar is in Michigan on the Detroit river, I didn't know any of that. But I think my cards go there first and then when there is no Pippadog in Gibraltar MI, they get sent on to me in Gibraltar, Gibraltar. If any of my pals want to send me cards again, perhaps they should add two Gibraltars to my address.

Misery did not print any cards this year so I did not send any. But I would like to thank the friends I have mentioned above for thinking of me and remembering me, (Misery and Master too) and those friends who sent cards that arrived earlier.

Thank you for answering our questions, Pippadog. You're right -- when she's not telling us what GOOD DOGS we are, Mom is always telling us -- me (Jake) especially, not to be so NOSY. She said if I was a person (you mean I'm not?), I'd be a concierge.

Sorry about that nasty sore - but at least Misery is being more generous with your treats. And we hope that even nastier e-stuff has gone off to never never land.

Stay cool, handsome pal!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

Pippa, we are glad to hear that you are feeling better and have finished your meds. That hot spot isn't a lot of fun, but we think your furs will grow back. If not, we will send you some to cover that patch:)

Stay well.

Hello there Pippa,

We are very pleased to hear you are a lot better now. Apart from the sore, that looks like it was nasty. But good to hear it is healing up. :)

Good luck for the blood test, we have fingers and paws crossed here for those nasty bug things to be all gone now.

I am glad you are feeling better! Nothing to do with being sick is any fun, so glad you are getting well.
So, ah ha!!!! I can HULA too! I just have to get my terrible secretary to help me with it. I am getting ready to fire her as she works way too much.
Glad you got my card, and that is proably true, that we should put two Gibraltars on it next time.
Your bestest CAT friend,

Hi Pippa,

Hope your leg is getting betters.
Saw your peeps' finca gardens. Looks very nice. Assumes that you are guarding it from vermins and yummy chooks. We are in the middles of a strong moving airs storm. It freaks me outs when I try to pee or poops.

Take cares of yourself and your peeps.

Suzy :o))
