What a Day / Sing-a-long with Pippa: Mr Blue Sky

Sun is shining in the sky
There aint a cloud in sight! (maybe not)
It's stopped raining,
Everybody's in the play
And don't you know?
It's a beautiful new day

Running down the avenue
See how the sun shines brightly!
In the city,
On the streets where once was pity
Mr Blue-
Sky is living here today
etc. etc.

Mr Blue Sky by ELO

Hello folks!

Yes that's right, there can be blue sky in Scotland!

And what a day I've had! I am seriously pooped out.

You see, Eve came and kidnapped took me for a looooooong walk. 
Don't get me wrong, I do love her very much!
Have fun reading...

We played with the ball at Westburn park
In this video, you can see my new habit of forgetting to bring the ball back to Eve.

I splooshed around in the water! Woof!

And here you can see the fun we had jumping over the burn. It was preparation for what I had in store later...

We crossed the road to Victoria park (the one with the crocuses)
And we played with the ball again, woof!

Until my tongue stuck out like this!

At which point, we decided to run home and get dinner.

Then I had to walk a veeeery loooong way to Johnstone gardens.
I was so tired, and the sun was blazing down.

Then we went to Eve's house.
No, she doesn't live in here! Woof!

I needed a rest, alright?

Then, they drove me back to my house (hooray), with a mysterious BIG BLACK PACKAGE...


Eve had bought me some lovely jumps with money that she's saved up since Christmas! How kind.

Tired though I was, I had to try this.

We went into the whirlies and set them all up. Woof!

This is how I got on.
Eve was coaxing me with my ball. Cheeky.

Not bad, eh?

And you can weave through them, if you take off the bars!

My first attempt at weaving, but with treats this time...

Okay, so maybe I do need a bit of practice!

I was very excited, because I like it when Eve uses the clicker!

So, how was YOUR weekend?
Oh, and do YOU agility?

Bye for now,
Pippa :) wuf wuf


  1. Phew - we are tired just reading of your adventures....what a day you had and now you have agility things to play with too....you are going to be one happy puppy

  2. You had some amazing adventures!!

  3. Wow Pipa, I am very impressed. And look how much fun you had on your walk. I must say though that I would not have jumped over the water, I would have waded through it. I kinda have to be in water whenever I see it.
    Can't wait to see more videos of your weaving and jumping.

  4. Wow... you were really good with the agility course for the first day! Well dome Pippa, Boris (and I) are very impressed.

  9. Oh wasn't it just wonderful, just wonderful, to see the blue sky today! Oh and Gail and I are very impressed with your efforts at agility. You have no idea how long it took me to execute a successful weave. And you do know that if they put the jumps up too high you can always run underneath...
    Toodle pip!

  10. PIPPA..... those were super videos.... in the furst one you ran FASTER than the WIND.

  12. No, we don't do agility, but we like to sniff all the apparatus at the park. You're going to have lots of fun jumping over that stuff. Our computer wouldn't download the videos, but we can imagine. That was lovely of Eve to save her money for you.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  13. WOW! You did EXCELLENT! We have weave poles but haven't put them up yet. You should be proud!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  14. I don't do aglity. But wooo you sure do. What a great day!

  15. Pippa - you did very well with your agility. Our Mom would love to do agility with one of us, but she says she is too old now.

    We aren't much for chasing balls and bringing them back, but as Mom says, if you don't go get it, then your human can't throw it again:)

    We loved hearing Eve's lovely accent.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  16. Jumps that turn into weave poles. Genius. I thought you did quite well at the jumps and weave poles.

  17. It seems you had a fun day with lots of adventures!

    Many of my friends do agility and they love it so I am sure you will love it too. I don't do agility due to my weak hindlegs so I always just stay at home :(

    ~ Eva

    Jimmy and I are big-time agility addicts!
