Birthday--part 2

When we went to the river on our birthday yesterday.....

 We took cheesy, bacon muffins for everyone.
 They were greatly appreciated by all of our friends.
And we met two new dogs...
Chico, who joined in the water games

 And Theo...who is a Maremma.
He was running with goats before he came to
his forever family.
Dui liked Theo, following him everywhere.
There's an Australian film called 'Oddball' about a Maremma who lives with Little Penguins.
We didn't think Theo was odd, at all.

It was my birthday today....22nd May.

 My ♥♥♥Ernie♥♥♥ sent me a special Birthday Parcel last week.
Isn't it festive!!
 He enclosed a card with 87 Bazillion kisses, just for me.
 There's a new special red ball and a chipmunk that you can put a bottle in.
 I love my chipmunk.  I cuddled it and slept with it.
 And kept it away from that annoying Dui!

We got the ingredients for a birthday cake...
 Our favourite cake.....steak, cottage cheese, tasty cheese sprinkles and kibble.

Of course, I had to share my birthday with Bella
because we missed hers. (11 April)

The pretend rocks, and squeaky alligator are hers, and the kangaroos tail treats in the net bags, we all share.

We had a fantastic day!

I, Roxy, am eating my dinner NEXT to VACULA!
(Usually Roxy runs when Vacula makes an appearance.)

Those Darned Cats....

When we got back from our 'holiday' at the kennels.

Not only did we find CAT FOOTPRINTS on
OUR car.....including SLIDING prints down the windscreen.

look at the chair ON OUR front verandah!

One of THOSE CATS--probably that sneaky ROY,
 left POO on OUR chair!

 Or maybe hairballs, SHE didn't look too closely.

BUT, whatever, it was a definite invasion AND
showing disrespect for us!

We finally got to meet Ursula.

For the last few months, everyone at the river said,
"You must meet Ursula!"
"Ursula was here yesterday.
You missed her."
"Maybe Ursula will come today,
you must meet her."

Well, yesterday.....Ursula came to the river!

She's a Bull Arab X Airedale (?)
and is only ONE Year Old....

AND she loves catching rocks in the river.

So here's Ursula.........

Wadda ya think?

First Foggy Morning....

Saturday morning was our FIRST foggy morning this year.

We were out early to enjoy it!

Even Bella (no photo) was racing around and joining in games.

 But our friends were LATE! 
(Bella was already in the river at this point.)

Hurry up, everyone!

Finally, they  arrived!
And the sun burnt the fog away and we had a beautiful day.

We saw this on the way home...


Hope you are having a great weekend!

Hi Everyone!  We've been having computer problems.  More specifically:  Windows 10, Firefox, Norton and our server.
We lost our blog for a day....grrrrr.
Not being computer literate does NOT help.
(The air here is blue with HER swearing.)

Other than some much needed rain on Monday and Tuesday,
the weather has been beautiful....sunny and COOL!
In addition to our Early Morning Walk...mostly in the DARK,
we've been taking walks in the afternoons.

On Thursday, we returned to the southern part of our river
and walked along the Tracker Riley Cycle Way.
We didn't go in the summer.....ksa (known snake area).

Naturally, there were scents EVERYWHERE,
so it was a slow walk.

 We went up to the playing fields...
So we could race around like maniacs. 
 Then back down to the second bridge...
 And along the track to the car.

We ALL loved it--even if we had to be on leads.
And it calmed HER for the next bout with the computer.
