Chilling in the SUV with my human mother’s driver, Dan. The set is so stressful. I can never get high enough to see what’s going on except when I’m on my chair, but then everyone’s just sitting around gabbing or doing a jigsaw puzzle, when I need to get on the phone and connect with my office. You may think I’m sleeping, but I’m brewing up plots that have decent roles for someone other than a mutt! Us purebreds are usually cast as snobs or bad guys or clueless idiots. Some of us deserve it because they are happy to be type cast, but others of us need to develop as artists with a brain that doesn’t want to be wasted. #havaneseofinstagram #havaneselovers #havaneselife #havanesemoments #havaneseoftheworld #havanesedogs #hillbillyelegy

And mine is higher than hers!

If I could, I would pick up my magic baton and conduct a great chorus of barks, meows, neighs, bellows, trumpets, chirps and roars that would stop mankind in it’s tracks and lift it out of its misery. But since this is just a bully stick, I’ll just stay here and stop the heart of the human who loves me.

Into the camper at 6:30 am.

So...I know they’re props, but this is cruel and unusual punishment! Maybe if I stare at them long enough, they’ll fling themselves into my mouth...I’m very patient and EXTREMELY focused. #beggingdogs #beggingdogsofinstagram #dogsbegging #dogsandbones #dogs #havaneseofinstagram #havanesebegging #havanesestaredown #havanesedog #havaneselove #filmingingeorgia #georgiamountains

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY, POP. I’m proud to be your son, even if you still have your balls and I don’t. And even if you haven’t been totally faithful to Mom and I don’t know any of my full siblings, let alone my half brothers and sisters. It’s the loving personality that counts. You make me proud. 🐾🐾❤️🐾🐾❤️🐾🐾Pip #havanese #havanesemoments #havanesemoments #havanese_dogs #havanesepup #havaneselove #havaneseloversofinstagram

Cocktail hour and I’m trying to stay cool. I can hear the squirrels clinking their stupid, beer mugs and can smell their disgusting peanut burgers from here. Now I think they’re singing “From the Halls of Montezuma,” but it’s hard to understand their annoying, squeaky voices. One of them must have had a relative who fought for our country, so I’ll declare a truce for Memorial Day. Tomorrow, however’s another story. For now, remember with gratitude.

Afternoon vigil.

PIP QUIZ #8 What is THIS?

sirpippinofbeanfield

I’ve been in a bit of a hiatus. And I realize I never revealed the answer to my last PIP QUIZ #7. Probably none of you remember, but here is the image of the quiz and what it was actually a picture of. Many got it right. It is of bath water laced with lavender bath oil. Bravo to all you sybarites who got it right.

It’s a dreary day. I’m going to just wedge in and meditate on the state of the world. #havanese #havaneselove #havaneseofinstagram #havaneseoftheworld #dogsonpillows

sirpippinofbeanfield

What? Ya, I see them. They’re very pretty, but I’m a little too busy right now to pay them much attention. #daffodils #dogsandflowersodinstagram #dogsandflowers #spring #havaneseofinstagram #havanese #havanesedog #havaneseoftheworld

My human Mom is working hard at her desk. I’m working hard, too, believe me. In my mind’s eye, it is a bright, windy day and I am in sniff heaven, sussing out the outrageously insulting squirrel who thinks he’s so smart because he can climb trees at the last minute. He’s a scaredy-cat in a squirrelly suit! What a puny, little coward! One of these days I’m going to have a face-to-face “chat” with him and we’ll see where his fancy tail gets him then!!! Man! I’m exhausted!

PIP QUIZ #7 WHAT IS THIS?

Heaven is a new-mown field in Spring! @havaneseofinstagram @wallythehavanese @maggie_havanese #dogsinfields #springfields #bluebirddays #happiness😍

This chair is my world. If you have a day outside sniffing and rolling on worms and sniffing and getting a few barks in to tell everyone what’s going on in the neighborhood and running and sniffing and keeping an eye on your human, you need a version of this chair...and a hedgehog squeaky toy.... @havaneseofinstagram #havanese #dogsinspringtime ##sniffingdogs #havaneselove #waggingtails #dogsonwalks #dogsofbroadway

SOLUTION TO PIP QUIZ #6 It’s dew on a leaf.

sirpippinofbeanfield

Sending love and deep sympathies to all those who lost their lives in Christ Church, New Zealand and to their loved ones whose family universe has been so brutally transformed, in an instant, by an unspeakable act of violence. I’m taking time today to ponder the loss, to let it sink into my consciousness, to let it affect me, to mourn all those who’ve been the innocent victims of this kind of toxic hate. Through the phenomenon of social media connectedness, we have the capacity to FEEL as one entity, together. We need to be aware that we can be connected by darkness as well as light. May we always turn to the light. May what is good in us prevail over what is hateful and destructive. May we instill love, empathy and moral courage in our children. It’s the only way we’ll survive.

PIP QUIZ #6: What is this?

sirpippinofbeanfield

Mixed message kitsch! The message says “Welcome to Montana”. The horse’s expression say, “But if you move here, I’ll kick your ass into the next state!” #instagramkitsch #madeinchina #truckstoptrinkets #horsekitsch #horseart @mtstateparks

I’m a leopard, lying on a branch of an acacia tree, in the vast African savannah, waiting to drop onto an unsuspecting gazelle. I’ll rip out its jugular and keep a death grip until the light goes out of its eyes. Then I’ll drag the warm carcass back to my hungry cubs and watch contentedly as they eat their fill.....or...I’ll just have a little snooze on the back of the sofa.

SOLUTION TO PIP QUIZ # 5: It’s the tip of one of the toes in an amazing set of armor, displayed in the summer castle of King Carol I of Romania. I visited the castle while making WHAT HAPPENED TO MONDAY.

SOLUTION TO PIP-QUIZ #5

sirpippinofbeanfield

On the back of a very big, tall actor called FRED JOHANSON, who played MAX in the latest Broadway revival of SUNSET BLVD with my HM (Human Momma). This is a special trick of mine. It makes everyone laugh, but I’m dead serious. “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog!”

My human Momma is having something done to her fingers and toes...while I doze.

PIP QUIZ #5 What is this?

sirpippinofbeanfield

On duty during the shooting of CROOKED HOUSE. You can’t speak to her before speaking to me! She’s going over her lines for the next shot. That’s not her real hair! My body-wig IS real and extremely comfortable.

sirpippinofbeanfield

At my desk, in my trailer during the shooting of CROOKED HOUSE. I kept things running smoothly, especially around the Craft Service tables! @havaneseoftheworld #dogsonlocation #havaneseofinstagram #cooldudedogs

Solution to PIP QUIZ #4: This is a black and white image of RUST ON A DUMPSTER!!! I was being given a tour of the venue for the Vanity Fair party and spied it on a dumpster. Fabulous!

Trying on dark glasses for the red carpet. I picked the last pair. I am one cool, chill dude. #dogsinglasses @havaneseoftheworld #havaneseofinstagram #cooldudedogs

PIP QUIZ #4 We’re proud of this one. WHAT IS IT?

sirpippinofbeanfield

SOLUTION to PIP QUIZ#3 So many guessed right. It is the bark of a tree on Burton Way in Los Angles. Sadly, I don’t know what kind of tree. I bet one of you does. Cheers!

Introducing the great game of HALL BALL.

PIP QUIZ #3 Guess what this is. It’s the true color.

sirpippinofbeanfield

SOLUTION TO PIP QUIZ #2 It is the center of a picture I took of frozen dirt on a flagstone path at home. I did mess with the color. Those who guessed anything to do with sand, stone, ice, etc. came closest. I love all your guesses! Very creative. Cheers!

With my home mini-pack, Dalai and Snoop-Dog. I grew up with them. They are my best friends. Snoopy is getting old now, but he still can boss me around...when I let him. @havaneseoftheworld #havaneseofinstagram #redcarpetdogsofinstagram
