The Watchers...

Know what we're watchin'?

Dui and Roxy.  Bella is watching from the front window.
 That CAT!
He was in OUR front garden and we yelled at him to go home.
This is what he looks like close up.
One of the three front yard cats sitting next door and nearly in our garden.
 Well, we survived yesterday.  It got to 44°C/111.2°F.
After our early morning river run and clean up,  
we slept in the A/C and
had some cold treats.
Kibble frozen in Vegemite flavoured water.
It's supposed to get cooler as the week goes on.

Give Sarge the Bird...

Warning: Long Post
We thought we'd join Sarge's reminiscence of  Giving the Bird....
for Thanksgiving.

If it's one thing we have around here, it's birds.
Here are a few.

Every day, everywhere birds.

Sulphur crested cockatoo

Red-rumped parrot

Black Pacific duck



Sometimes birds...
Eastern Rosella

Little Corella


Superb Fairy Wren



Kookaburras--Very Rare to find five together, we mostly hear them.

We chase them all.

"Do I have to come up there?"

It's 11 a.m. and already 39°C/102.2°F. 
SHE says you've seen enough photos of us at the river and sleeping, so we thought we'd do the birds.

For Our Friend Bertie

We were just reading Bertie's post about his winter coat
 that turned into a beanie.

We wanted to warn him that patterns like this are circulating
 on the internet.

We're sure he doesn't want to end up looking like a sheep.

However, knowing about his interest in everything scientific,
 we think he (and the knitter) might like to sport
 beanies like this during the cold weather.
We can just picture them  walking through Duthie Park together with matching beanies.

And now a warning for you guys who are
facing the Polar Vortex......

Look at us!

We are being FORCED into being outdoor dogs!
Now, don't get us wrong, we like being outdoors
and we like being indoors.

We don't like being FORCED to be one or the other.

We think we should be able to CHOOSE.

We don't like closed doors.

Especially, when there's a stranger IN our kitchen, doing stuff under the sink,
 near our food bowls.

The ring-tail scottie!

Dui has a light, brindle ring around his tail.

Of course, after some wild games at the river

Dui, Chloe and Roxy

it's hardly noticeable!

After several days of hot weather, we awakened to a cool, rainy morning.
We still got to go to the river.
