Change Is Good, Right?

Thanks for all the suggestions on ways to help me adjust to my new yard. It's just so BIG and OPEN and there are all these crazy birds chirping in the trees! I've lived in the city my whole life - I'm not bothered by sirens, fireworks, car alarms, or even loud neighbors coming home at 4:00 a.m. - but these birds are driving me NUTS! 

In addition to the noisy birds big yard, the new house also has this great bay window where I can sit and watch the world go by.

So this is life in the suburbs ...

 Wonder where a guy can get a decent cheeseburger around here?


Hey papa, throw me the car keys I want to take a spin around the new neighborhood!

Oh Pip life in the Burbs isnt all that bad :) Now you can get use to kids, bicycles, strollers, mail men :)

I love your window seat! Finn is right 5 guys burgers - yummy or if you have a mighty fine :)

Anny said...

Living in the burbs should not be all that bad lil Pip... You could start to go out for a walk... and mark allllllllllllllllll the trees and christen all the tires along the way. That would be fun.

Regarding the big yard and the chirpy birds... i guess the birds are just too excited you are finally here and giving you a rousing welcome. The yard might be a bit big.. but we will all know where to hold big paw pawties when where to grill cheese burgers next :) Its a beautiful house. Hope everyone and everything gets settled down soon.

Madi and Mom said...

Good Morning Sunshine!!
Oh Mr. Pip I absoltely adore window seats. You my, handsome BFF, are going to love that window!! When Mom saw it she squealed. Just think of all the sights you can see. Also you'll get used to the chirping birds from inside then they won't bother you so much outside. I bet you will be elect Neighborhood Watchdog! I'm so excited for you and your family to start your life in this beautiful home. We look forward to more pictures.
Hugs from your BFFF,
Madi

You are going to love watching the world go by from that window. I'm jellyfish!

:o)

Shawnee the Shepherd said...

You need to get you one of them BEWARE OF DOG signs with a pikshure of a big, drooly, fangy junk yard dog on it - that will show those birds who they be dealing with.

Tucker The Crestie said...

The new house and yard look awesome, Pip!

Julia Williams said...

Pip, you have a great window seat AND a big yard -- some day you'll come to see what a lucky doggie you are!! P.S. I also think you'll be able to get used to the noisy birds just like you've gotten used to sirens.

Sarge said...

Hey Pip!
Wow, I think your new house and yard are just incredible! I bet you will really love it there. The yard will be your own personal private park and that window is totally amazing! Keep those pix coming. Enjoy!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Daisy said...

What a great bay window to sit and watch the world go by! I think you will enjoy your yard once you get used to it.

Tank said...

Watch for kamikaze birds in the spring Pip. They hurl themselves against your windows... over and over and over. Doesn't matter how many times they do it, they never figure it out. I think birds are really stupid.
Congrats on your new home!

rottrover said...

We love your bay window, Pip, and agree with Frankie and the Woos that you need some comfy cushions to sit on up there. You and Rosie can rule the world!!

Brian said...

Looks like a nice place Pip! Hey, we can come take care of those silly birds for you!

Monaco said...

But this bay window is amazing, I love to look outside! SO this is quite amazing!

Schnauzer Days said...

Hiya Pipster!!!

You really are a city boy aren't you, but you'll soon adjust. We must say the country air must be doing you good because you're looking very perky!

Look forward to reading more about life in your new home, has your Dad found the local pub yet, that's where you'll get all the neighbourhood gossip ;-)

Have a great week and hope you get to meet some new doggy neighbours, Dex and Lou xxx

sprinkles said...

I didn't realize you had moved. Congrats to you and enjoy that big yard. It may take some time to get used to but I bet in time you'll really come to appreciate it.

Sorry I haven't been around for awhile.

Elyse and Riley said...

Ooooh, life in the burbs looks awesome!! What a cool window! Riley says she hopes you get to bark at people/birds/mailmen/dogs/cats/etc that go by out there!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi Pip, glad you are settling in a little. Soon you will be a laid back country bumpkin. If its anywhere like us, you have to drive half an hour to get a burger. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

KB said...

That window is soooo great! We have windows that are at "dog level", and our dogs love looking out them. Isn't it fun?

Before too long, you'll think that the birds are making music... And, you'll have a barbeque in your very own yard, cooking up some cheeseburgers!

Kristin G. said...

Welcome to your new home Pip!! You'll get used to the birds, and I bet you'll find a new cheeseburger joint in no time!! xo

Zona said...

What a beautiful window you have!! And, trust me, you will get used to your yard and will hardly remember what it was like not to have so much zoomie space!! You're going to love it! I just came from Frankie's blog... maybe you need a new brudder or sister to share it with you?

Wags,
Zona

Oh my goodness! What a window seat you have!! I am so jealous! I miss being able to sit by the window and look out... can't wait for our new couch to be built... *sigh*

And what an awesome backyard you have! I'm sure you'll get to love it as soon as you get used to it. :)

Woofs & hugs, <3

Hey Pipster....just hang in there. After a bit, you are gonna wake up one day and think


WOW this is great. Really

I promise, you'll learn to love it. True it will be hard to find a good burger, most of the really good food is in the big city....but there are a bunch of things in the suburbs that will help you forget about them

Keep us posted

My dear Pip,

Your new house looks great and beautiful! I'm sure those birds are over excited at your arrival and are looking forward to see your handsome face every day :)

Change is good cause it comes along with plenty of adventures that will draw out your courage and strength which at times you never knew you had it.

I'm looking forward to read more of your exciting adventures. Suburbs will never be the same because Pip & family is here!

Once the boxes are unpacked and your familiar things once again surround you, it won't seem quite so different. Time, dear friend, I was pretty scared when I moved froma farm in Kansas to albuquerque, NM...and imagine how Quinn felt coming from LA! I bet there is a perfect place to get a good cheeseburger nearby.

Jazzi said...

Aww....the burbs huh?? You will get used to it Pip and you will scare those silly birds away. Your window looks pretty Snazzi, you can really keep an eye out there. Hey forget the hamburger, you need a Taco my friend, yep, that will make everything all better. Do you get your own room in that house??
Looks pretty nice!!

Whisppy said...

I would love to live in the suburbs, away from the hustle and bustle of city life AND a huge yard with birds to chase! You're so lucky, Pip!

Love, Whisky

Looks like you have found a simply super spot there to watch the world go by.

I don't like change either but I think you are going to love your new home when you get used to it.

I'd LOVE to do zoomies on your big new lawn and help your folks get some air into the soil!!

Love and licks, Winnie

Ryker The Tonkinese said...

Congrats on your new home! Wooo Hooo!

mayziegal said...

Well, I'm not really the right dog to ask abouts this cuz, well, I myself am what my momma calls "change-averse." What I have found really helps me whenever there are big skeery new things is CHEESE. Yep...cheese sure changes my mind abouts lots of stuff. And if it comes on a burger...well, that's even BETTER!

I bet before you know it, you'll feel like you lived there all your life!

Wiggles & Wags,
Mayzie

PeeS. Thanks for being excited abouts our Rescue Me Week! I'm SOOOO super happy you're gonna pawticipate!!

Glad to hear you are loving your life; seems like you are truly enjoying yourself!

P.S. Don't forget to stop by our blog THIS week and enter the "name game" contest I'm hosting, for my newest guide dog puppy - it only takes a few seconds to do... and you may end up being the winner!

Peggy Frezon said...

You're going to love it there Pip! There is lots to explore in a big yard.

Sagira said...

How nice of them to buy a house where you have a great view huh :)

road-dog-tales said...

Pip, buddy, you will get used to the birds. If not, have your Mom get you one of those sound machines - do you think they make one that has "city sounds"??? BOL!

And, um, we think you need a nice comfy cushion for that window seat. Just sayin' . . .
