Pip and Puddles do SoCal!!!

As we're sure you're aware, Miss Puddles Duddles Rainwater is helping Mr. Pip complete his list of things to do, places to go and kittehs and pups to meet before he "kicks the bucket."  In short (sorry Pip) Blogville is celebrating Pip's life!




Today they're visiting us in the L.A. area.  Puddles and Pip arrived in style, had a small (or big) detour and then made it down to San Diego to see the seals. Let's get started...

   






Puddles:  Laaawww...Where's a gal supposed to park??

Pip:  Puddles, I don't think this is it...this isn't a house!

Puddles:  It's big, it's shiney, it's gorgeous!  Honey, I just know Bart lives HERE!!

Pip:  Ahem...Puddles, this is the Disney Concert Hall.  See the sign??

Puddles:  Well, I thought with Otto in the family, they might live across the street from the courthouse...

Pip:  Let's head toward the mountains...I gotta get outta this car!!


~~~





On the way up to our house, Puddles became distracted by all the Marijuana "Dispensaries" in our 'hood.  





Puddles:  Pip!  Buddy!  Let's go in!!  Maybe this "medicine" could help extend your life!  I'm a healthcare professional, afterall!!

Pip:  I don't know about this...


  

Puddles:  See!!  Honey, it says "Caregivers!!"  
I just know for certain they can fix you up in there!!

Pip:  I don't think smoking is good for my heart...















And so Pip got his "med card."  Sheesh.  Of course Puddles had to "test" the efficacy of the "medications" to see what the proper dose might be for Pip...




~~~







Puddles:  OH MY LAW...Pip, I feel HUGE!!!  And sleepy....

Pip:  Wow.  Dude.  I've always wanted to be a BIG DOG!!  Look at the colors of their coats...I'm not even scared of them.

Puddles:  Wow...you're all SO beautiful...








And so, Pip and Nurse Puddles, newly minted BIG DOGS curled up on our bed and slept it off....




~~~~







After an 87 hour nap, They woke up STARVED!  We offered them some of our venison canned food, but no.  Puddles wanted left over tri-tip and a margarita "for the road."  They were off to La Jolla, near San Diego, to see the seals; something Pip has wanted to do all of his life!  We didn't really get to hang out much with them.  They just kept waving their paws in the air and going, "wow.  look at the trails..."  



~~~










They were still a little large by the time they reached La Jolla, butt they didn't scare the seals.  We're so glad we could host the Pipster and his beautiful, if adventurous, Nurse on the West Coast leg of their tour!  



Good luck you two!  We LOVE YOU MR. PIP!!


Love,

-Bart, Ruby and Otto

The Boston Lady said...

Such a great trip (in more ways than one) for Mr. Pip. Looks like SoCal is just his style.

Love the new header! Ann TBL

Madi and Mom said...

Bravo Bravo Bravo!!!
OH dear goodness me I see Puddles is still struggling with her parallel parking. Maybe she needs go pop over to the 'medicinal' store before she parks. Thank goodness Pip is mature and has a level head 'cause we are sure Puddles will go a LaLa land on us before they depart.
Great Post
Hugs Madi your BFFF

Casey said...

OMD, you guys! Pip and Puddles have the munchies bad enough without your medicinal help. There won't be any Cheetos left in the whole Northern hemisphere now!

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

So the K9 Ah Bus took PIP on a TRIP did it? Better living through chemistry !!!

I suppose they are BOTH suffering a MAJOR SNACK ATTACK right about now.
There will be a HUGE Cheeto Shortage in your neck of the woods FUR SURE.

3 doxies said...

WHERES DA CHEETOS???

Two French Bulldogs said...

Crap! We should have pawticipated. You passed our house. We heard police helicopters and saw on TV there was a high speed chase. It was you!
Benny & Lily

Sweet William The Scot said...

A little weed, a little grass, a little catnip. They left yesterday behind them, you might say they were born again
You might say they found a key for every door at the marijuana.
Thanks for being a friend

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

OMD OMD Benny and Lily are RIGHT... it was just on the NEWS... Everybuddy could SEE the RED CAR that was being chased... it HAS to be Pip and Puddles.

PeeS... NURSIE PUDDLES is even starting to TALK like a NURSE... isn't she... HONEY... ????

Mr. Pip said...

You mean she is not a real nurse? So Cheetos really aren't the secret to a long life?

3 doxies said...

Snap out of it Pip...of course I is a real nurse, I has a hat.

Hey, can we goes back to da store.

Puddles

chicamom85 said...

Holy Dogs, the last thing Puddles needs is "medicinal herbs". She and Pip will eat us all out of cheetos and munchies. I hope they didn't take any for the road. It looks like it was an interesting day. I wonder if I might try some of those "herbs"?

What Remains Now said...

The Rottrover gang sure knows how to put a trip in a trip. Hope their fridge was well stocked.

Amber DaWeenie said...

Think you guys better sleep it off before you hit the road again.

georgia little pea said...

Marijuana dispensaries and margaritas? Yegawds. Why are we living in boring Sydney?

Maggie Mae and Max said...

SoCal is lookin' better and better, maybe we should come and visit you guys too!!! Great post!

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae and Max

PeeS Mom is gonna be in Long Beach in June so maybe her will bring us wif her! ;)

harrispen said...

You all sure showed P & P a good time. This adventure really cracked me up.

GOOSE said...

It was bound to happen, Puddles dispensing "meds". Bawhahhahha. I don't think they will need the red car any more, they can just fly to their next destination, which I am sure will be the Cheeto factory to cure the munchies that I am sure they are going through. What a great time ya all showed them.
Blessings,
Goose

Wyatt said...

Pip deserves whatever his little heart desires...not so sure about what Puddles deserves, but she has lots of desires! Bawhahhahha
See you soon, better take the bus...just sayin'

No In-And-Out Burgers????????? Animal style of course!

Fenris and Family said...

Oh you took Pip and Puddles to Mommy's favorite places in San Diego. Daddy took Mommy there to see the sunset.

2browndawgs said...

LOL but Pip be careful, I believe that "medicine" is one of those plants toxic to dogs. :)

Tanya Breese said...

oh my gosh, what a hilarious post this was! :D

Ruby said...

Okays, I'm a little late on the up-take, sorry guys! Sorry I missed your California 'Trip'! Oh yeah, we have LOTS of 'medicine' dispenseries here in the Golden State...maybe we need to rename it! BOL Well, how did I know Puddles would partake in our many medical dispenseries!!! Oh gurl! Nows, they do make all kinds of forms of the ganja...cookies, brownies, sprays, gels, etc (Ma, how do you know that???? Nevermind Ruby). Anyhu, I did see your high speed chase on the news....I was wonderin' if it could be you two, they were sayin' that the two occupants were throwin' empty beer bottles and Cheetos bags out the windows in an attempt to swart efforts to catch em'....I just KNEW it had to be you guys!!! I thinks it was a BRILLIANT move to hide out in the parkin' garage til' they called off the search. Thou, after you made your escape, they did find your hidin' place...they founds the empty 'dispensery' bags, and lots of Slim Jim wrappers.
I'm so glads you gave em' the slip...our jails are REALLY over crowded, and you might have had to share a bunk with 'Tiny'
Can't wait to see what's you guys git into next! BOL
Kisses,
Ruby

KB said...

Ruh roh, we have those dispensaries here too. Pip and Puddles might be making a habit of this! I was wondering when the munchies would hit.

It sounds like they had a great time!

Roo said...

BOL! You got em stoned?!!! Oh too funny - what a tour Hahahahhahha!

Waggin at ya,
Roo
