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!

  4. 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.

  13. 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

  22. 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.

  23. 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!

  24. 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.

  25. 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!

  26. 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!!

  29. 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

    Sorry I haven't been around for awhile.

  32. 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

  33. 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!

    ReplyDelete
  34. 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

  35. 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?

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

  40. 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

  44. 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.

    ReplyDelete
  45. 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!!

  55. 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!

  60. 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' . . .
