Delightful Duthie Park, and the thing

Hello folks! Woof!
Today, Eve came and dognapped me, again! (she took me to Victoria park yesterday morning too)

We walked all the way from Rosemount to Duthie Park, which is a very long way for me if you don't know what I'm woofing about!

Plus, the sun came out! Other than a few light showers, it was over all a bee-aa-utiful day.
Enjoy reading...

Yes, I am here!
I chased after someone else's football, which was slightly embarrassing...

Bandstand and Blue Sky! Woof!

I cannot tell you how many places this ball has been to
The water to-be-paddle-boat-bit!
Heeheehee, I'm laughing because the sun's in your eyes Eve, woof!

Woof, these bushes weren't here last time
A last run around...
And then we walked along the old railway line!
I am allowed to woof to my hearts content here, because it says "make yourself heard"!
Woof, woof, wooooof!!!
This is called the Old Deeside Line.
Trains don't run along here anymore, but it is a nice walk!
We stopped and read the info along the way...well...Eve did...
We went into Pet Comforts.
This is me having a good sniff around the pigs snouts! Woof!
She bought me a thingie, but I was more interested in the free treat the mannie gave me.
Let's go home and see what the thingie is!
En route, we stopped in the park on her street...
We got to Eve and Grace's house. Woof

It's a flip-out water bottle attached to a bowl!
They fold in together and the bottle doesn't leak!
Hoorah!
It even has a strap for me to wear it...well, maybe Eve actually, woof!
After playing with the ball a bit...
A bit more...
And just a wee bittie more...
It was time for me to go home.
Eve's humans are getting rid of their 12 year-old Mini tomorrow, so today was my last chance to go in it. I won't be allowed in their new car when I next come and visit them  because it will be all lovely and clean.

I wasn't going to give Eve a seat...
That sun is bright!
I sat on her knee and we drove home, with Grace and their mum in the back.
Hello Aberdeen!!!
Thank you for coming along!

I would like to know if you sit in the front or the back of your peoples car!

I prefer sitting in the front because I can pop my head out the window. In the back, I'm always sick.

Hope you had a great day!

Bye for now,
Pippa :) wuf wuf

Spring-ing on Sun-day!

Hello Folks!

Sorry for my short absence, Eve, my assistant, has gone back to school and so couldn't help my bloggy! (whine whine)

Meanwhile, I've been running about chasing my ball and barking at people, so it's all good! Woof!

Today, she popped by, and the sun came out!

We had a great time springing around and practising my jumps!
It makes me very happy!

The sun has got his hat on, hip hip hip hooray...

Ooooh, I can't woofy wait!

Today, we are just doing two. I'm almost ready to try three though!
Here is a video of our warm up/zoomies!
(Sorry for the filming issue, you will maybe have to tilt your head)

video

Let's get started! Woof!
Now, unfortunately, silly Eve did not take many pictures of my agility today! But I suppose we were working rather hard at getting it right.
Here is one alright video that she managed to get with the camera on the ground...

video


My smiley face turns into a serious face when I'm jumping!
Thankfully, my water is outside. Woof!
BUT, somedoggy has made a mess around it...
Eve nipped inside to get some food to play my snorkelling game. 

Where is she? Woof.
So, she came back, and we played the snorkelling game!!! 
It is very fun. You should try it.
You might see the bubbles I blow near the end of the video...

video

Oh, I love the sun! Woof!
Thanks for visiting today!
Is it sunny where YOU are?
What did YOU get up to?

Bye for now,
Pippa :) wuf wuf

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
Woof-wuf-wuf!

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
Woof-wuf-wuf!
etc. etc.

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.

video

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...

video

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.
Whine.

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...

MY FIRST AGILITY JUMPS!!! Woof!

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.

video

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...

video

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
