Peeps on Parade and Pip, too.

I know we're late. In some timezones the weekend is all over already. But we figured we could just get a short Peeps post in before it was too late. Thank you to Sarge for this interesting idea.

 Now the Moms will not show up in photographs. They are either vampires or ghosts or maybe in the Witness Protection Program. Daddy doesn't mind, though. Perhaps it's because no on told him Blog Mom is posting him to the blog. Hee hee.

That's Daddy on the left. Franklin's the one on the right. I think the one who got cut off  might be my human brother. There are like a zillion pictures of him on the web. Here's one

That was when he was out on the road all the time, which he is not now. Which, believe it or not, is one of the reasons we haven't been online as much, lately. It's a long story, but the short version is he changed his life around some and now the house is more full of peeps more often, keeping my Blogging assistant much busier than she used to be. I like having more people around, but it's a bit annoying not to have my blogging assistant at my disposal. Still, things like that never stay the same for too long around here. We just have to go with the flow, is what I'm told.

Daddy's the one who's home with us the most. He's retired and not always well. But he loves us HUGELY and spends tons of time seeing to it that we have everything he thinks we want or need. He worries about us a lot, too. We're not sure why because we're fine, thank you, but he means well. Music has always been his great love. Classic rock is his favorite. He also likes sports quite well and he builds model cars as a hobby now that he's home all day.

Daddy and Blog Mom are married. Blog Mom works during the day as a bookkeeper at a not for profit organization. She loves her job. She isn't as crazy about domestic chores. Daddy does as many of those as he can if he's feeling well. Sadly, he doesn't cook. Franklin lives downstairs with them all the time and sleeps with them at night. I live downstairs with them during the day and early evening if Alpha Mom is not home.

Alpha Mom works in the same place as Blog Mom. Alpha Mom has worked there much longer. She's an attorney there. On weekends there's Sarge, of course. He's our equine brother who does not live here at home. He's a draft cross. Alpha Mom has loved all animal, but especially horses and doggies all her life. She is a vegetabletarian, too. I live with Alpha Mom when she's home, which is not as much as Blog Mom, and I sleep with Alpha Mom at night.

We still have our foster bass player.  In fact he's been here for four years, so Blog Mom is getting less optimistic about finding him a forever home. Here's a photo:

He's not only a fine bass player, he's quiet, housebroken and knows most basic commands. Franklin and I want to keep him. So far so good.

We want to say Happy Blogaversary to Mr. Pip. Looks like we didn't quite make he deadline to join in the Superhero fun. Blog Mom actually got her dates mixed up about that. But that doesn't mean we're not enjoying all the super creative superheroes who have shown up there because we are. And most of all, we just are so glad that we've had this chance to get to know Pip.


  1. Hi Lola,

    Thanks for your kind words. The party is winding down, which is good because I am exhausted! Saving the world is hard work!

    Thanks for sharing your peeps with us. My mom is also a vegetarian AND also works for a non-profit. She is primarily a grant writer, which she claims is not much fun (she has been doing it way too long).

    Thanks for stopping by the party! I am off to sleep now.

    Your pal, Pip

  2. Your peeps all sound super cool and interesting! I'm glad to know more about them!


  3. Sounds like you have an interesting and very satisfactory home set up there Lola (except for the vegetarian bit....). Thanks for telling is all about it.
    Toodle pip!

  4. You lived with interesting hoomans, Lola... and that makes it fun I guess. How nice to have a daddy at your disposal 24/7, can't really complain about that, right... I bet Franklin would agree with me too. Thanks for sharing your interesting peeps with us.

    Licks, hero

  5. Hey Lola & Franklin!
    Wow, what a great P.O.P. post! I'm so glad you made it to the event. Sounds like there is a ton of music in your lives and that's a really good thing. I'm sure that you help your dad when he isn't feeling well...that's something we pups do really well. Your mom working for a charity is a great thing too. I enjoyed reading about your human pack and thanks so much for pawticipating in this. You're in the drawing now!!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  6. Your peeps sound really cool and interesting and you live with so many humans, does it mean that you get more treats too?

  7. Hey Lola! Nice to meet your peeps! Sounds busy around your house - never dull! You and Franklin have lots of work there takin' care of everyone!! Have fun!!

  8. Lola,
    Sounds like there is always something going on at home with all those humans about, but that's a good thing!
    Maybe Blog mom can put the bass player on PetFinders website. he may find a home through there. (not!)

    Hugs Madi and Mom

  12. You have an interesting pack of humans that you're responsible for. We're happy to learn who's who.

  13. It's so cool to meet your family! Looks like there's never a dull moment around your house! Our peeps would love the music, for sure! And, hehe, our Mom is a vegetabletarian and hates to cook, too :)
