In which I get confused ...

First, a couple of news announcements. The first one is a very sad one. My beautiful girlfriend Mati went to the Bridge in June.

She was such a very sweet girl, looked after her brother Rocky, and I thought she was gorgeous. She will be at the Bridge now, reunited with Rocky who went there two years before her. I didn't realise it was so long ago until I looked back.

Both Rocky and Mati couldn't have found a better home than with Mike who gave them a super quality of life and made sure they got the best treatment possible. We send him our love and also hope he is ok after Irene passed through Virginia. We will miss their presence in dogblog world.

My second piece of news is totally different. It's about a blog that has been quiet for years and has come back again. I always keep pups on my blogroll for just this reason. Doesn't matter if they don't post for months or even years, but if one day they come back, then it is good to read their blogs again. So, if you have time, please visit Snoop, Lily and Tuppence over at Tales from the Midget Circus. They are nice dogs and they have some good pix too.

Now, onto me.

So I have discovered some new treats.

A beefy dose in fact.

[No Pippa, it is not a beefy dose - it is bifidus]

Well, that could explain why it didn't taste very beefy at all. Not even like my vegetarian beef slices which smell and taste yummy.

OK, so it seems it is yogs goats.

[No, Pippa, no goats involved, only cows, apart from when eat we goats milk yoghurt I suppose]

Go away Misery!! Whatever it is, it comes in little cartons, and Misery has been eating it ever since she got a pawly tummy a few weeks ago.

First she takes the top off and I clean that off for her. Then she eats nearly all the yogs goats herself - greedy Misery - and I get to lick out the carton. Better than nothing I suppose.

We eat the beefy dose one in Spain, and in Gib we eat one called Yeo Valley which is an organic model. Apparently this one contains beefy doses and some other bacteria. None of that is remotely interesting in my view, enough to know they are yummy and get the PippaPaw of approval.

Speaking of my paws, I have been limping a bit with my front right one so Misery went off to buy some glooky stuffs. [Glucosamine] They are not very nice looking tablets so Misery wraps them in my beefy slices, or a piece of cheese. First I get a plain treat, next I get one with the tablet inside, and then I get a reward treat. Misery thinks I haven't worked all this out - but if I get extra cheesies and beefies, who am I to complain?

OK, that's it for August. Catch you all next month.

And a close up, yes, I can recommend dust sheets for pillows

Hard work licking out the carton, I can tell you

What am I supposed to do with this? I need it to be held for me

That yog goats stuff is one of my fery favourite nom noms. My Mumma lets me lick that silvery lid too, and then clean out the container for her after she is done with it.
I stick my snooter right in the conatiner and hold it tight between my two paws. That's the best way to get it all cleaned out. It's a good trick to learn. Better than the hu-mans holding it, 'cause sometimes they take it away before I is really finished wif it.
I hope you get to eat more nom nom yog goats.

Hello Pippa. It sounds to me like I need to re-investigate that whole yog goat thing. Some of teh cats absolutely love it and get it as a treat. I had shown no interest in my younger years so #1 hasn't offered lately.

When I hurt my ligament I got some of that glocothingy too but it came in delicious chewable form, a treat in itself!

Hi Pippa,

We get that yog goats stuff in our kibble every morning, a big dollop of it, just plain flavored. We all love it except for Phantom, but you know him, Mr. Picky Boy.

We are sorry to hear about your pal Mati. We didn't know her, but she sounds like she was a very sweet pup.

Hope your glucky stuff helps your paws too.

I like your pill/treat system! Much better than Old Girl, who throws my pills down the back of my throat. I do get a treat after that, though.

Mango said...

Hey! I take the glucosamine too but it comes in nommy form that I like to eat plain nekked for sure. You should try that kind.


P.S. I am going to visit your pal. Thanks for the tip.

That beefy stuff looks a little suspicious to me. In one of the pics it looks like you might be drunk! Glad to see your face though. I hope my mom does not get any ideas from misery about doing only one monthly post.

Hi Pippa,

Hershey had a poorly tummy too (actually, make that a 'sploding bum instead) and our mom went out to get her yoghurt and acidophilus tablets. Oh yes, and I got to lick out whatever's left in the yoghurt container..

Hope the glucosamine is helping and that the limping is gone.

Pippa darling!
So good to see you posting again..I will have to do a post too! I LOVE that yog goats stuff! Mom gets vanilla or strawberry flavor and I always get to lick the container clean! She gets it in a big container, so I can put my snooter all the way in and do a REALLY good job and get every last drop. I have heard that glooky stuff is good for us. Sounds like you have the PERFECT way of taking it! Extra treats are always good!
I will try to put a new post up later today with some pics of the damage that was done by that nasty storm. For now, I am going to my bed and dream sweet dreams of you.
your Skye xxxx

Cleo and co get a big dollop of yoghurt every morning with their keeble... and they love it...

Sorry to hear about your friend Pippa but we know lots of great doggies who will be waiting for her at the bridge to show her round.
We believe the squirrels and the bunnies move slower there.
We have never tried that goats stuff ourself although Bailey has now started on 'senior' food for her poor old joints.
lots of love
Martha and Bailey xx
