Pip's Bucket Tour at MY house

Hellos and welcome to da final destination on Pip's Bucket Tour.

I, Puddles Duddles Rainwater was most honored to
helps Pip cross off stuffs on his bucket list...I was his nurse just in case anything 
went wrong. Well I tooks really good cares of him...I swear, I really did.

Anywho, today Pip is coming to my 'hood in SC.
Pip knows what a good huntress I is and he has alwys
 admired my huntin' skills so he wanted to try his paw at huntin'.
So I thoughted I would show him hows it's done by a professional.

Ahem...okays then.

So then I thunked maybe huntin' wasn't such a good idea.
Some dogs just ain't natural born hunters...hehehehe.
I promised him I wouldn't mention havin' to console him fur missin' Big Foot.

Then it hit me...we could go DIGGIN'.
Every dog likes to dig.

ummm, I'll just write da instructions down and him can practise at home.
So we done dat and made a luvelry hole if I do say so.

Puddles: So whatdaya wanna do nows?
Pip: Well gee Puddles, I am getting a little tired now from all that hunting and digging
Puddles: Oh lawd has mercy Pip. Okay then, I has a splendid idea.
Pip: Is it better than your mum's ideas?
Puddles: (rolls eyes) of course it is.
Pip: Okay then....what is it?
Puddles: We is gonna go gets some Starbuck's coffee at da funeral home and rejuvinate.

So to da funeral home we went to gets coffee.
Yes, our local funeral home has a Starbuck's...don't ask.
We boff had a cup of Coffin Cocoa.
It was most delish.
We sat and talked bouts world domination peace, squirrels politics, and udder worldly things.
And then Pip telled me he was bored.

  Pip: Puddles this is a little boring.
 Puddles: How wells I knows, it is kinda weird talkin' bouts educational stuffs.
                So what do you wanna do?
Pip: Well, I have always wanted to go to Vegas.
Puddles: Alrighty then, let's go!
Pip: Please tell me you aren't going to fly.
Puddles: Okays then, I ain't gonna fly...bwhahahahahaha!

Soon we hads made our way to da plane.
We even brought a little souvenir from da car...hehehehe.

Puddles: How comes thre is no steerin' wheel on dis thang?
               OMD, theres no feetsie pedals eithers! And theres LOTS of buttons and switches too.
Pip: You know Puddles, your ideas are worse than your mum's.
Puddles: Hehehehehe, I reckon you is you might wanna buckle up now.

Then we landed in da most beautiful place evers....LAS VEGAS...withs just some minor turbulance.
I said it was MINOR, no fault of da pilot.
Puddles: We should really jack dat sign.
Pip: Do we have room in the car for a HUGE sign?
Puddles: Hmmmm....we'll make some room cuz it's beautiful.

Pip wanted to go to da furst casino he saw so of course I obliged him.

(hey you, person I do not knows...can you takes our foto?)
So, nice person tooks our commemorative foto.
Dang, should has sent these out as post cards. Oh well.

Then...then...then we found da SLOT MACHINES!!!!!!!!!
But unfortunately we was tooooo freakin' short.
Fear not, we broughted supplies just in case.
See, we is smart likes dat.
(Thanks Jazzi and Addi!)

Afters dat we headed to da bar cuz we gotted awfully thirsty.

But furst, I had to stop and tell these ladies a joke...they laughed.
Seriously it WASN'T THAT funny, geez.

Finally we made it to da bar.
Like dat took fuuuuuurevers, like 87 steps at least.
Pip and me ordered 87 beers...

...and I tolded da bar tender to put it on Frankie's card.
Score one fur me...or 87 but who's countin'?
Frankie won't mind, it's fur a good cause and he is such a givin' furiend.

Pip gotted hungry and I had to pee.
So while I went to do my business him found some food.
Okay so he found somebuddy elses food but Pip is nice and letted her shares with him...hehehe.
Of course Pip wanted all da fries.
Woman done eated da burger!
But Pip is old and achy...dats what he tolded hers anyways.

Seen these men when I was coming back from my pee.
They was playin' craps or sumptin.
They totally sucked at it too.

We decided to head out to da pool fur a little relaxtion.

Pip:I....I....I think we just found the Fountain of Youth at a hotel!
Puddles: Okays, you gets in da pool and rest your achy bones.

Pip: This is more like it.
Puddles: Watch dis...I is gonna do a Canon Ball!
Pip: Must you?
Puddles: Yes, I must!
Pip: I should have known this wasn't going to be realxing.
(little Puddles splash...splash)
Puddles: Your turn Pip!

But then afters all da fun, it was time furs Pip and me to head
back home befores it gotted dark, it was sad and I thinks I even gotted a little
teary eyed but I will nevers admit to it.
Since we tooks da beautiful, famous Las Vegas sign we had to has da car sent to us.
We does like souvenirs.
So far we gotted...
Hilary's wine
Bertie's Licker cabinet
Gracie's big ear
Bunny's martingale collar and crown
Jazzi and Addi's cushions
Sasha's neighbor's mailbox
Casey's bull and horns
money from NY dat we gaved to underprivileged doggies and kittehs
da Las Vegas sign

Not a bad haul huh?

 We was on da road to home and it was indeed gettin' dark and then it was dark.
Pip started yellin'...
I slammed on da brakes (sorry bouts dat whiplash Pip) and we boff gotted out...and sat.

We sat togedders and looked at da moon... rememberin' our beautiful furiend Remington.

Finally we ended up wheres we began....
...on da couch.

Baahwhahahahahahahahahha will have to excuse me for a second, my assistant seems to have fallen off her chair laughing ...Get up, woman! I have things to say!

The Daily Pip said...

OK, first of all, just to set the record straight ...I gave Bigfoot quite a chase. I decided to let him get away cause you know I am a humanitarian and there aren't many of his kind left. Besides whoever heard of big foot burgers

3 doxies said...

Imagine da BIG, HUGE burgers we could get out of it though.

Then again I reckon all them Big foot supporters would be afters us...oh well, whats new?

Anonymous said...

Hooray! Hooray!! Oh I love a good trip to Vegas, and I love how you charged it all to Frankie's card. hehehehe, I won't tell. What a great end to the tour!

The Daily Pip said...

(Insert light bulb over head) You mean all this time all you dogs have been digging in dirt. I have done all my digging on the couch (which ain't too bad either) I never knew dirt could be so much fun

The Daily Pip said...

Big foot = big burgers ...on second thought ....

3 doxies said...

Did you sees Gracie's ear in my yard?
I think it makes da perfect yard ornament.

Oh Pip, one foot and then da other and then you goes REAL REAL fst...just watch da worms.

Marg said...

Oh you two are just the funniest. What great great ending to the big long trip for Pip's bucket list.That whole thing was so much fun. We loved it all. Glad Pip got to dig in the dirt. Anyway, everyone take care.

liparifam said...

Cowspotdog said...

You guys have just had the best of times....but how will peeps know there are in Vegas now without the sign to tell do know that peeps are not very smart and need signs to tell them what to do!

The Daily Pip said...

I want one for my yard!! Should we go back and snatch the other ear?

Ranger said...

BOL. What an PAWSOME road/air/boat trip you 2 had. I thinks you may need a nap. Perhaps the Betty Ford clinic has some beds available for youz.

houndstooth said...

I KNEW you had my collar and crown! I think this was one great ending to your big adventure. Any chance you can get me one of those fancy bedazzles signs? What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, I hear!

The Daily Pip said...

No worries that red light is just to tell us the coffee is ready. I am making coffee in that tube thingy that says "danger" . Your welcome!

3 doxies said...

Oh well dat sounds perfectly legit.
It is suppose to be smokin' right?

GOOSE said...

Puddle I have no doubt that without you by Pips side there would have been many many things left of his list. And all the memories you helped create is just beautiful. What a way to end the tour. So is it true what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas? I suspect there was more mayhem err I mean memories made there. I hope you two have a good rest now after this huge adventure. Thanks for taking care of our Pip, don't know what he would have done without you, well I guess he would not have run from the popo, but that is good exercise I suppose.

OMD OMD.... I just got a call... WHAT did you two CHARGE ??

My FLEZA Card was just CANCELLED !!!

3 doxies said...

Oh not much...just everything we saw we liked...bwhahahahahaha!
Oh and 87 beers.


Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

HI you 2... Its ME Ernie... FRANKIE is UNDER THE BED... CRYING...
I keep telling him it is OK... Now he can get one of those
MerryCan Butt EXPRESSED Cards to replace his cancelled FLEAZA card butt he isn't lissening to me.
I think that you had a grrreat time butt I am really sorry that you didn't get to deaded the Hoooge Foot guy.
You sure did get a BUNCH of souvenirs... Like 87 of them.
OH Squirrel Snot... Frankie is HOWLING now... He is such a poop head.
I'll see if I can get him a Starbucks Mummy Mud Latte.. That will cheer him up.

3 doxies said...

I hears da MerryCan Butt EXPRESSED card has a lower interest rate so tells him we done him a favor.

The Daily Pip said...

(Slips cheeseburger under the bed) we are sorry ....

Would you happen to have another card ....we are a lttle short on cash

Lovable Lily said...

We gotta say, Pip has just the best furends in the world!

Puddles you did yourself right by helping Pip and escorting him on his Bucket Tour. We had so many laughs along the way. We shared some tears, we learned alot, we travelled to places beyond our belief and learned that laughter IS the best medicine along with eating 87 cheeseburgers!

We absolutely love the picture of you two checking out the full moon and remembering our much loved furend Remington.

To all of your host's along the way we say BRAVO!

Get in a good rest you two. You deserve it!

Lily Belle & Muffin

3 doxies said...

Splendid idea Pip...bribe Frankie with burgers!

The Websters said...

Now that was the very best visit...I mean...from a funeral home to Vegas.

Oh...Puddles, you forgot that what happens in Vegas...

I'm trusting you left all the best parts of the story out.

Those photos are beautiful b/c Mrs. Master had nothing to do with them. Master's mom took them but I'm sure you knew that already.


Sketching with Dogs said...

What better way to end your bucket tour than hunt big foot, go for coffee at the funeral home (you really know commercialism has taken over when there is Starbucks at the funeral home, BOL), commit identity fraud with Frankie's card and get sloshed in a casino!
We have loved all your and Pip's tour posts with our pals, so funny!
Dip Bridge and Elliot x

Unknown said...

Oh and Pip had such a pawesome time together! And how nice of you both to stop and think of Rem during the Remington moon.
Happy Friday!

My Mind's Eye said...

Brian's Home Blog said...

The Daily Pip said...

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

{{{BURP}}} Scuse me... I guess I ate that Cheeseburger too fast.

OK... now I (Frankie Furter) gotta tell this on MYSELF...
When I saw that you two had my FLEAZA Card and were spending me into the poor house... I sorta
CRAPPED on the Craps Table...

Hope no dice got stuck in it.

The Daily Pip said...

Isn't that what it's for???? The Craps Table is for crapping????

WFT Nobby said...

Pip, I just can't believe that you and Puddles acutally arrived safely in Vegas. Nothing else ever will surprise me after this.
Toodle pip!

Angels Amber and Max DaWeenie and Mom said...

Dis was da bestest tour ever! Me waited wit baited breath every day to see what you's was up to. { trip to Mars)???

Maybe you's can get anudder FLEAZA card and have dis tour made into one of those cutsy books. Bet it would do GREAT in a Blogville raffle.

3 doxies said... does you gets dis handle on da slot machine down?
Crap, I think my arms are too short...I needs MONEY!!


Millie and Walter said...

You two sure know how to wrap up a good time. I had so much fun having you visit me and seeing all your adventures around Blogville. Thanks for sharing.


The Daily Pip said...

How about we use Sasha's mailbox and hammer down the arm on th slot machine - that ought to get us some cash

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

You should have gotten some of those nice soft pillows.. from the Starbuck's and ETC. Place..

The Daily Pip said...

You mean like THESE pillows??? I pulled them out of one of those decorative boxes at Starbucks. I was going to use them to my winnings in

3 doxies said...

Yes, yes...dats what we done. We tooks them from da decorative boxes.

3 doxies said...

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Good heavens! What a trip. Where are you going to keep the souvenirs? Going to divvy them up?

Can't believe he missed the BIGFOOT!

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

How special for Pip to conclude his big trip at Puddles' place. We still can't get over that you have a Starbucks in the local funeral home - very bizarre.

Too bad you didn't wait to go to Vegas until next week because our Dad is going to be there. We know he would have love to have helped you two with the slots.

We especially loved your special moment for Remington.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

Matilda the Boxer said...

OMD... Pip, Puddles, you two have had SUCH an amazing trip and seen such totally fangtastic things! I don't know how you can go back to living an ordinary life now.

I hope that you find a nice place for the longhorn to live. He needs a lot of space to graze, but he can manage on a lot rougher forage than regular cows.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Puddles, you sure gave Pip a grreat time. We've heard about Las Vegas so thanks for showing us around. Mr Frankie is soooo kind for letting you use his card. Glad you had such fabulous times mates. Which beer did you like the best Puddles??? No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Duke said...

What a great time you had! We love Remington's full moon picture!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

Sweet William The Scot said...

Oh Pip and Puddles ~ I think I just heard a ADB (All Dog Bulletin) for you two, something about drinking and driving, stealing, identity theft and more. Hope you both get home safe and sound and the Popo don't find you!
I think it was great you stopped and remembered Remington on your drive home.
Thanks for being a friend
Sweet William The Scot

Ziggy Stardust said...

Puddles and Pip, my sweet pals, that is about the most perfect ending to your amazing and sometimes frightening tour. I will always think of my Remington when I see the moon cause he loved me to the moon and back.

I am pretty sure they are gonna want that sign back in Vegas, so I would hide it pretty good if I were you.

Loveys Sasha

Two French Bulldogs said...

Love your adventures. Wish we were there sippin coffin cocoa with you
Benny & Lily

Dougall-the-Scottie said...

Geez, you guys certainly don't need Somedoggy to get you into trouble!

GizmoGeodog said...

What an absolutely wonderful end to the tour...You two are the definition of the term "pawty animals" Really...I saw your picture in the dictionary...oops,my bad... momz sez that was mug shot book muaaa ha ha...Any time ya'all want a little weekend adventure I'd love to show you around my part of the world

Anonymous said...

You took the SIGN?!!! OMD

Can't believe Pip missed Big Foot - y'all might have to make a trip to the Northwest to give it another go ;P

Your funeral home sounds like something out of a Janet Evanovich book BOL!

Glad y'all had those pads so you could play the slots and give to the less fortunate ;)

Great tour my furiends!

Waggin at ya,

ShellePenn said...
