November round up

Here I am with my weekly monthly update. Well I live in hopes. It used to be weekly.

Of course, Misery being the technologically incompetent person that she is, has been messing around with her blogs again. So then she decided to start another one. I ask you, how many blogs can a person have? How many neglected blogs does a poor sad Pippadog have? Huh? One. A measly one. Anyway, it is a new wordpress one - roughseasinthemed for anyone interested in reading about her utterly boring life.

Oh, but she has made me a favicon - can you see it next to my blog address in the top bar?? And I have added icons on the right in my blogroll so you can have a look - hardly any of us have icons, most have an orange B for Blogger. Come along pups, get your pix out there on your favicon, you don't even need to mess with HTML now, you can just upload a tiny pic max size 100 x 100. So go do it.

Now onto ME. I had a fine time on gate duty at my finca as usual. Then it rained and I wasn't allowed to go out and lie in the wet. OK, so maybe I didn't really mind too much, so I took me under my table den.

Table den with my head under Misery's pretentious stool

Then I thought I might practise a little for my friend Bolo's Snosevember Contest I mean Nosevember. I think these are good fun. The trouble is you have to guess the dog belonging to the nose, so now you will all know which is my nose. Maybe I need to take different piccies.

Nose and face - nope, too much of me showing there

That's better - my snose nose

Next up, I tried to eat my friend Mango. That would be silly wouldn't it - I think he is a bit too big for me. I really tried to eat Misery's mango that she had for breakfast. Look at that plateful - far too much for a person to eat without sharing with a poor starving Pippadog (well I had already had my breakfast but I had forgotten about it by then).

Yummy mango. Far too much for greedy Misery

Waiting for MY mango

I've already posed once - you want more pix?? I need mango

Haha even I can't keep a straight face forever

I could be waiting a while. I decided to lie down

Here I am later on patiently waiting for brunch

I don't know why there isn't a place set for me

Thank goodness for kind Master - he always shares with me

And in other news, I had a super cockroach tale for you, but I will save that one for next time.

Don't forget to sign up for the DWB card exchange if you like to exchange cards or emails - details on Ping's blog here. And you need to send your piccy for the calendar too. Deadline for these is November 15.

I'll finish with a sad comment - seems my scary eyes didn't scare enough to keep the lovely Claudette with us. I came back from Spain to find she had gone to the Rainbow Bridge. (Misery wrote her tribute here if you haven't already seen it.)

We had been blog friends pretty much since she started some four years ago (I was a bit surprised to discover that when I did my research), and she was always one of my first and most frequent commenters, first with Lacy Lulu, and then with Rocky.

RIP Sweet Claudette, and if you see Prince over there (he's a barky GSD) - please give him a paws up from me. Tell him you are my pal, and he won't bark too much at you :)

Hello Pippa. Thanks for the DWB reminder. We hadn't re-registered following the change, so have now done so.

Great nose (and other!) shots!


Jake of Florida said...

Hey Pippa, we're in much the same situation as you -- lots to paw about but dependent on a lazy human who can't seem to get with it.

She hasn't even sent our photo for the calendar or entered the card exchange.

What next? No kibble or water ir walkies?????

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Seems like we are all having trouble with the humans. Ours seems to be having trouble with helping with our blog since she has been reduced to the use of only one paw:(We don't know Bolo but we think we would recognize that cute snooter anywhere.

Mango said...

Hey! I have eaten the yellow false Mango myself and it is most yummers but a bit disturbing nevertheless.

I love your snooter close up photo. Makes me want to give you a smoochie.


Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

As I've pawed the OTHER Mango...good thing they work cheap!


One Little Birdie said...

Hello, Pippadear. We love your snose! It's the cutest snose I have ever seen.

And I understand how your heart hurts when you lose a dear firnd, so kisses on your snose from me.

Well aren't YOU a cutie!! Thanks so much for visiting me -- it's so nice to meet you!! :)

Woofs & hugs, <3

We all need some mango!! It's almost perfection--but not as much so as Pippa.


Natasha Fernz said...

Hey Pippa

How are you doing? Hope your paw is all better now...

We. Mom is not smart enough to know what a favicon is.
Your snose is almost as magnificent as mine! Claudette was one of our earliest blog friends too along with LcyLulu, we will miss her. She is probably tenind to all the furkids we have all lost at the Bridge.
