Guess what?

 We got a package today.....all the way from the UK!
 Louis and Dexter, two adventurous schnauzers asked for summer pictures.  We sent one at our 'beach'.  And we were finalists. 
 We didn't win, but look at the fantastic picture they made for us!  Isn't it wonderful?
There's a lot of work in this...
 So we just want to say.......
Thank you Dexter and Louis (and your Personal Assistant)! 
 We're going to put the picture on the wall next to our computer.

Also thanks to those of you who voted for us, too.

Kendra loves.......


ROLLING!

Sometimes she walks about 4 steps and rolls.  Shakes, walks 4 more steps and rolls. ....takes ages to get across the field.
 A true Have-Grass-Will-Roll policy.

to stand at the front gate and bark at anyone (and any animal) who dares walk passed our house!

This Week

It rained all week.  SHE disappeared every day and came home smelling of children....yuck.  We've had hardly any walks.  Only short ones.

This afternoon, the sun came out.  When SHE came home, we had dinner put on our collars and leads and packed into the car.  Great excitement.  Were we going to the river?  Duckpond?  Millie's?  

NO, we went to the V-E-T-S!  It was time for our annual check ups and needles.  What a disappointment!

Lazy Post

HOW MANY DOGS DOES IT TAKE TO CHANGE A LIGHT BULB?

(We stole borrowed this from The Scottish Terrier News...but it doesn't have a scottie response.)  Hope you enjoy it.

Golden Retriever:  The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a burned-out bulb.

Border Collie:  Just one, and then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code.

Dachshund:  You know I can't reach that ***** stupid lamp.

Rottweiler:  Make me.

Lab:  Oh, me, me!!! Pleeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh?

Siberian Husky:  Let the Border Collie do it.  You can feed me while he's busy.

Jack Russell Terrier:  I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture.

Poodle:  I'll just blow in the Border Collie's ear and he'll do it.  By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry.

Cocker Spaniel:  Why change it?  I can still pee on the carpet in the drk.

Doberman Pinscher:  While it's dark, I'm going to sleep on the couch.

Boxer:  Who cares?  I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark.....

Mastiff:  Mastiffs are NOT afraid of the dark.

Pointer:  I see it, there it is, there it is...... right there...

Greyhound:  It isn't moving.  Who cares?

Australian Shepherd:  First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle...

Old English Sheep Dog:  Light bulb?  I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb.

German Shepherd:  Alright, everyone stop where you are!  Who busted the light?  I SAID, 'STOP WHERE YOU ARE!!!"

Hound Dog:  ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Cat:  Dogs do not change light bulbs.  People change light bulbs.  So the question is:  How long will it be before I can expect light?

Us, because it's our blog.
So what do you think.....are the answers accurate?

Decisions, decisions, decisions.......

Social Saturday morning

 We had NO WALK on Friday....you read that right...NO WALK!  SHE had to drive 5 hours to Sydney for a 45 minute doctor's appointment and 5 hours back. (One of the delights of living in the middle of nowhere). Then SHE went out to dinner with friends and abandoned us again!
 So Saturday morning we got HER up very early and stuck to HER like velcro until walk time.  Kendra chose not to come.  She just watched us get ready and disappeared into the bushes.
 We had rain during the week.  That made Bella happy.  She loves puddles.
 
 Jake was already down by the river by the time we got there.
 And his brother Max.
 Bella and Jake went for a paddle until the rest of the gang arrived.
Max, Fred, Jake and Buddy (in front) Flash is missing.
 Fred was last to arrive this week.
Daisy joins the game
 Then the games started.
We raced around, paddled, explored, got very dirty, knocked over our peeps and just had a
fantastic time!  Bella got trodden on at one point, but she got up and raced on.  Those boys play wild games.
We always have lots of time to sniff around.
And it's definitely worth putting up with the bath.
Hope you are having a  good weekend.

Sugar's Barkday

 Today, the 10th of August is  Sugar's 10th Barkday! She is a very smiley Golden Revriever.
 To celebrate her birthday, she has asked for lots of smiley faces.

So here we are! 
(Bella was more interested in escaping the photo shoot.)

Two on one

We finally got some rain today....good for the farmers, but not appreciated by three scotties who only got ONE SHORT walk in the reserve across the street!

But we have some pictures taken at our friend Millie's during the week when we had beautiful days.

As you know, Millie is a wild, in-your-face doxi. She never seems to tire and doesn't pant much.
Look closely.  Can you see Millie?

Daisy, Millie and Bella

Bella, Millie and Daisy


Come on ya wimps...I'll take on all three of you!
She just goes and goes and goes!  We love Millie.
(Because it was an indoor day today, Bella watched 'Rain Man' and some cooking shows. 
 Kendra and I slept.)
