Is this Scotland?

Hello folks!
This happened yesterday...
And so did this.
You may be thinking "well, what's wrong with that?"
See if you can guess...

It's the weather! Woof!

Surely this cannot be Scotland I am in, for there's blue sky and sun!
The temperature has been reasonably hot too!
What has happened to the dull, dreich weather of the north-east?

Not that I'm complaining!! Woof! Look what I did!

Woof, that's right. I went to the beach this morning!
I did not see any of the usual dolphins. Whine.

But the sun was out!!
I mean, look at the sky! Not Grace's elbow. Woof!
This is very fine!
Is this Scotland?
Woof! It is!
Then I got the zoomies...
And I ran into the sea!!
I got the fright of my life...

And avoided it whenever I could.
It kept reaching out to me though, woof!
Sun, sun, sun!
There was a bit where the tide was in...
So we walked along the beach front for a bit. Woof.
The sun stayed out all the way!
And there were absolutely zilch clouds!
After a quick stomp through Fittie...
I went into Pets at Home.
I mean, you can't just walk past it, can you?
I had a lovely time sniffing stuff...
And scaring the rabbits.
(There were no crazy hamsters this time!)
When I got home, my al' folks were like "Pip, yi 've been awa' fir an afa lang time! Far've ye bin?"

And I was like "Woof!"

What's the weather like where you are? And what've you been up to?

Bye for now,
Pippa :) wuf wuf


  1. Hello Pippa - WOW, you had a great day and outing. Nothing better than a sunny day!

  2. Well Pippa our weather is most unusual this year, one minute it is 75 gorgeous degrees outside and the next day we had 3 inches of snow...no lie! Mother Nature loves to stomp on us sometimes, and remind us she is in charge.
    We loved your pictures, and breathing in that ocean air, while we were looking at them!

  3. Well you just have to take full advantage of days like that - it looked wonderful!

  4. Pippa looks like you had a fun time on the beach. Make the most the sun while you can. Looks like it is going to be a good week. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly.

  5. Dear Pippa, we are so happy for you and your human pack, that you have such a wonderful weather! My mom has been in Scotland some milions of years ago for three weeks in July and they had only one day with a little bit sun. She enjoyed every rainy day and had a lot of fun. So she can hardly immagine you have sunny weather and we sit here under clouds! I wish you this holds a long time and at the same time it could be better here too! (probably you can't understand my English, but don't worry, it depends on me!)

    1. Arno, your English is super! I find it hard to get onto your blog because my Internet can be stupid, but I do enjoy reading your posts when I can!

  6. Look at that glorious blue sky! So lovely!

    It's raining cats and dogs here in the Washington, DC area. It's going to rain most of the week. Yuck!

  7. Lucky lucky lucky luck you Pippa. Can you believe I've been stuck inside while Gail's been at work.
    OK, she home now. LETS GO OUT! (This might be the best weather we have in Aberdeen all summer....)
    Toodle pip!

  8. Hello, Pippa!
    It looks like you are in California! :)
    You look happy walking along the beach!
    Well, here in Wales, we are having a lovely day, so we went for a long walk!

  9. We are glad you had a sunny day! We have lots of them here because the air is very dry.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  10. Enjoy it! The weather here is GLORIOUS! Finally spring!

  11. We live on the North East coast and we know exactly what you mean - days like this are few and far between right?
    We love your beach, it must be beyond amazing to see dolphins!
    There is always some fun to be had at Pets at Home, and treats :)

    Of late we have had Scottish weather, dreary and cool. Thankfully it is ending this week

    We are so glad you got sun. We hope it stays. Lee and Phod

  22. What a beautiful day you had! Glad you were able to get out and enjoy it! We are trying to hurry and get out dosage of nature now before that hot Houston, Texas sun kills us soon! But we have been super lucky as we haven't had any high 90's F yet! yea!!!

  23. What a pretty girl you are!!!! Love meeting you

  24. We are right down in the South, we had some lovely weather and guess what..It's raining today xxooxxx

    Mollie and Alfie

  25. How amazing! The weather been REALLY SUNNY where I am in Somerset! I'm not fond of water (like you) in any shape or form! When I was little I tried to walk over the water of a lake and...you can guess what became of me? SPLASHSHSHSH!
    I was frantic, paddling and kicking like...how can you describe it?

  26. Enjoy the good weather while you have it.

  27. What a treat the weather was Pippa - you look like you were making the most of it. Down here normal service has been resumed with rain and wind. What joy!

  28. Such a gorgeous day! I admit I thought you never see the sun in Scotland! LOL!

  29. We've had the same weather here. It seems we went right from winter to summer. We're trying to avoid turning the air conditionner on but it's been really quite warm and sunny.

  30. What a perfectly gorgeous dsy! It looks like you had lots of fun at the beach. We had some very loud thunderstorms overnight, but we are hoping for some sun today.

  31. OMD, Pippa, we are sooooo glad for you that you got such wonderful weather - She says that She remembers some glorious days when She lived in Scotland but also some very rainy days! It looks like you had a WONDERFUL day and zoomies on a beach with blue sky - is there anything more wonderful in life????



  32. What a fabulous day, the beach pictures are wonderful. Is Fittie your town?
    Sweet William The Scot

  33. What a great day you had! I think we should emigrate to Scotland - all the rain and wind is here in the South of Germany in the moment. I am dreaming of long sunny beaches with lots of nice dogs to run with...
    Woof, Cookie the Beagle

  34. Your day looked great! Wonderful photos too!

  35. Wow, you got lovely sunshine too! and your very own beach. You will get used to the water, and then you can go swimming! Swimming be lots of fun!

  36. Hello, Pippa! We came over to meet you after reading Oz the Terrier's pawesome limerick about you. You are indeed everything he rhymed and more. Keep up the good fun!

  37. I, too, popped over to meet you from Oz's site! I live in the Pacific NW (Oregon), so we know all about rain! Those sunny days are the best!

  38. Hi Pippa - we also came by to say hi from Oz's site. We live in San Diego so my Rita gets to go to the beach a lot. It's her favorite place. We have lots of sun here. (Sometimes I long for a rainy day! Could you send me some?)

    Looks like you had a wonderful time!


Go on, give me a woof!
