Just Try and Stop Me!

Why do I look so happy? Because I outsmarted the silly humans - AGAIN!

My parents recently replaced our ancient appliances with fancy new ones. And because of my so-called fondness for the refrigerator (not talking food here), I was banned from the kitchen! They even put up some rinky-dink barrier to keep me out - AS IF! I will let these pictures tell my story.

And that my friends is how you stick it to the humans! Feel free to take notes and by all means, do try this at home!


  1. Pip, you sure made short work of those barricades. Good job!

  2. Awww man thank you much for the demo! We are def taking notes on this one! Good Job by the way hehehehe

  3. MOL Pip I believe you must have feline DNA running through your veins!!! Way to go my man keep the peeps on their toes.
    I'm very very proud of your accomplishment.

  5. Way to go, Pip! Uh, er, do you pee on the fridge???

  10. There was never a doubt in my mind Mr. Pip, never ever!!!

  11. What a clever little Pip! Good thing your parents haven't figured out how to make a good barrier yet!

  12. Oh Mr. Pip you ROCK! I could just hear you telling them a thing or two....

  13. LOL...why am I not surprised you were able to navigate your way around the barricade. We're thinking of you all while you get your place ready. We hope it goes quickly!!

  14. Pip, I love you! This reminds me of when I first got my dog, and we were training her. We kept her in the kitchen behind a baby gate. However, every time we got home, we found her at the front door waiting for us. We didn’t think she could jump the gate, and there was only a tiny hole she chewed through. We knew she couldn’t fit, because if she tried, her head went through but her body got stuck. It was a mystery. So one day, I had a friend peeking through the kitchen window and I left the house. He watched her get so upset and determined that she constricted her body and charged through the hole….. It was so cute!

  15. Pippy... your peeps must be kidding.. *LOL* tat ain't a barrier man.. hahhahahaha.. so.. didya didya didya did the official christening yet?

  16. Pip, we are so very impressed with your escape skills!!! Those humans will really have to put on their thinking caps to stop you, Super-Pip.

  21. Pip, my dad tries to do this with the kitchen chairs to keep me out of the kitchen when they're moppin' up the floor... they really think I'm stupid. Of COURSE I get around them! Good Job my furiend!

  22. That's what they call a barrier? Wowzers!

    Good for you for showing them (once again!) who the boss is!

    Sam and Pippen

  23. Thanks for the tips, Pip but I usually just barge right through things! It is THAT easy!

  24. You are a brilliant thinker, Pip, the humans are never going to win!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  25. You are way too smart for their puny barrier!

  26. Hi Mr. Pip! Thanks so much for stopping by after Frankie's blog. I am always looking for new furiends. Keep in touch! :)

  27. That barrier is a joke! Thanks for the demonstration of how to get past a pathetic barrier like that...I'll be sure to NOT let Riley see this!!

    Chloe is off of crate rest! Hallelujah!!!!!!! :)

    Elyse (and Riley)

  28. Okay, wait, can you go back to step 3 and do it slower for me? I want to make sure I gots it right in my notes.

    You are MOST clever, you know that, Pip?

    Wiggles & Wags,

  29. Love it Pip!! I knew you could do it and you didnt let us down!! BOL

    Jazzi and Addy

  30. Dear Pips!
    Yous is WAY to smart for them!
    Are you sure yous is not a cat in a dog suit?

  31. Pip, I don't think there's anything you can't do! BOL! You're like Superman!

    Morgan is laughing because Dad tried the same thing in our kitchen to keep her away from the window with the chairs. Can you guess how well that works?

    We'll wave at you tomorrow! We're hopefully driving through Chicago!


  32. Who needs a flying pillow? :)


  33. Pip,

    You are da man! :)

    Woofs and Licks,
    Maggie Mae

  34. Pip you certainly are a PIP!

    But, really, have your hoomans ever heard of a GATE? BOL

    woo woos, Tessa

  35. Mr. Pip!!! Us Yorkies are very smart ... we figure things out ... and nothing will get between us and where we want to paw our way too!! ... you deserve a high paw-five!! tails and wags, Dolce..

    P.S. when Mommy first put the boots on me I walked a little wobbly and funny .. but after a few minutes I started to get the hang of it. I have runners, boots, water/sand shoes and sandals ... I think Mommy forgets I'm a furbaby sometimes... woof!! woof!!

  36. No barrier is hard enough to you, right?
    Good job, Pip!
    Kisses and hugs

  37. You just look so pleased with yourself, Mr. Pip!! Gotta agree with Miss Puddles, though -- not a real strong barrier! We've got gates and screens and all kinds of stuff to dissuade us from going where we're not supposed to go! Good job, though!!

  38. Is your middle name Houdini? Master escape artist.

  39. Oh Pip, you are just too slick for those silly humans. You know we just never seem to learn!

  40. Pip!! You are my inspiration!

    I shall call you Mr Motivator for today because you have shown me how to outsmart my people too.

    Love and licks Winnie

  41. LOL> Oh, Pip this brings back a memory for me when we just got Gracie and tried to confine her to an area in the kitchen so she wouldn't potty all over the house. She pretty much outsmarted us at first but... well... it's all in the book. haha.
    Pip, you are adorable. You look like one of those Russ stuffed animals... But obviously the only thing you're stuffed with is that prescription dog food, right?
    Gracie said to tell you thanks for reminding her that she is the boss and not us. Errrrr...

  42. Thanks for the tips Pip! I'm so clumsy I usually just fall through any barricades my humans feel the need to put up.
    Lotsa Licks

  43. You're really a smart pup, Pip!

    We do hope we can learn from you when ever we are faced with those 'obstacles'.

  44. Pip, you're spunky, determined and clever, but above all, you're just so awfully cute.

  45. I am not showing this to the Duo, never! You are too much, Mr. Pip!

    We discovered that our dogs had a "fondness" for a corner of our loft with nice carpeting. Now, some stools are blocking their path up to their favorite spot. Nope, they ain't reading reading your post!

  46. Ah Pip, you're a very strong dog,
    you don't stop in front of nothing.
    And you think a lot of things to get out of trouble.


  47. Omigosh Pip! Your humans are gonna have to come up with something better than that to keep you from your beloved fridge! Hey, we think you should totally put that last pic on the real estate website for your house listing! That would attract buyers WITHOUT any danger of them trying to make you part of the deal. Think they call that a "teaser" in marketing lingo :)
