Pippa goes into politics (briefly)

As there is something called elections happening all around the place, I thought I would go into Poorly Ticks.

[No, Pippa, Politics. You were poorly when you had tick disease. Not the same, although....... there could always be something rotten in the state....]

Haroo, Paw-lie-ticks then?

[OK, near enough]

Now, seems there was an election in Spain the other week. The party in government was the PSOE.

Hmm, I thought to myself, what could that stand for?

[Partido Socialista Obrero Español - Spanish Socialist Worker's Party]

I'll ignore that. Thank you Misery. Now, it could be Pippa's Super Omelette Eatables.

[Pippa, it needs to be vaguely about politics not food]

OK, then well Powerful Siberians Overcome - er Elephants? Nope, maybe not. Powerful Siberians Overcome Everything.

Yes, that one is OK, I think. Except the PSOE didn't win. Or overcome anything at all.

Instead the PP - Partido Popular (Popular Party) - won the Spanish election. They have right paw politics.

That's easy isn't it? PP? Pippa's Pawty. Pippa's Pups. Pups' Party. Pawfect Pups.

[More than enough Pippa]

Oh well, moving onto Gibraltar. Our election is in a couple of weeks' time.

We have the GSD, the GSLP (Lib Alliance), and the PP too.

GSD is an obvious one isn't it? Clearly the German Shepherd Dogs. Or the German Siberian Dictatorship? That's good isn't it?

[No, Pippa, we aren't really into that sort of dictator idea at all].

Oh. Disarm? Direct? How about German Siberians Discuss? That's good, I think, we can be all touchy barky with that.

How about the GSLP? That's another super one. German Shepherd/Sibes Lead Pups (and People in my dreams). I'm running with that one. I hope they get in. They are the Slightly Left Pawty. Perhaps that is what GSLP stands for. Gibraltar Slightly Left Pawty.

Now, PP.

[Thank you Pippa, we had enough of Pups' Pawties in Spain, no more suggestions for that one in Gibraltar].

Haroooooo!! This is too difficult.

I think I will leave paw-lie-ticks to Turbo, who is much more astute and experienced than me in this sort of rough tough paw-lie-tickle world. I shall go back to my pharma studies.

What else? I still haven't told you the cockroach tale, but that's for another post.

And, because so many pups on my blogroll no longer update, I had a little lookie for some new pals.

So next time, I will post up some linkies to some new dogblogs I have found because it is always nice to share new friends. If I remember of course.

Now, in other news, we have pawed out of the DWB card exchange because Misery is useless at it (and the truth is, as you all know, it costs so much to send abroad). We have however, sent some cards to the pups (shock horror and a pesky cat too) who exchanged with us last year. If you want a Pippacard by email or snailmail, please let me know before the end of the month and I will try and paw Misery into action. Unlikely, but hey, I'll try.

But, I did manage to get her to put a pic of me for submission in the DWB calendar.

So here are all my pics from our rubbish shoot-out. Hehe!! Such fun. Which one did Misery choose? If any?

I am asleep. Go away.

No. Not interested in photos. At all.

Ha! Laughing, and, wolf look-a-like time.

Thinking (not about paw-lie-ticks). My studious side.

Cultivating the mean and moody look, aka I really need to go to sleep again

Ah, my friend, my patita is feeling better but still troubling me. Thanks for asking. I am going to the extra special joint vet on Monday.

That's a very full post, Pippa, so let's see if we can address all the important bits. Poorly Ticks is a bore and best left to the ticks themselves, we say. However.., we were most thrilled to hear there is a GSD party running n your elections. That IS the German Shepherd Dog party, right? They MUST win, surely!

We would be delighted to exchange Christmas cards with you. We can be contacted at tom at ikkyu dot biz.

Pippa, I thought I'd stop by since you found my blog. You're very funny with your political names. I think dogs could run things better anyway. -Bongo

My darling Pippa,
You are so handsome and SO smart! We had a local paw li tickle election in our town and our neighbor lady won a seat on the town council. Sounds like a lot of work just to "sit". I know how to do that!
Did you see the DWB calendar? You and I are TOGETHER on April's page! (and my barkday is in April)
Mom took my card for you and mailed it at work. Apparently the guy in the mailroom has never heard of Gibraltar!
Kisses to you my darling,
your Skye xxxx
