Shoes


These old shoes always cause great excitement!



BECAUSE
they are goin'-for-a walk shoes!

Whenever SHE puts these shoes on, 
we get very excited.

Roxy usually grabs a toy and shakes it.
A short ,out-of-focus video:



Do you have 'signs' that tell you something exciting is about to happen?

We have three of these

and they move around the house...

A little something....

to remind you that winter is coming!
We had a cold weekend. (continuing all week)
It snowed to the east and south of us.
We just got the freezing winds and some light rain.
Yesterday morning we nearly missed out on our 
Early Morning Walk because the gate latch was frozen shut!
Here's something you don't see every day.

Nature Friday....

Even though it's Saturday here.

Dui and Roxy had to stay on their leads most of this morning. 




 Because of:
 Roo 2


Roo 1 bounded along beside our car up the track, 
then crossed in front of us and bounded away.
Dui howled and screamed .
(roos count as nature, huh.)

Solo Ride...

You can see where I ended up.

Dui's watching a dog outside the window.
The vets'! 
Waiting for Dr Merwyn..


Heart normal
Teeth good
Ears clean
All needles done.
BUT
I'm sure the scale was wrong.
I couldn't be 1 kg (2.2 lbs) heavier than last year.

Home ALONE


Abandoned, left by ourselves.  Yes, that was our weekend.

We should have known when we got a big feed on
Saturday morning, that something was up.

We should have known when our water dish was 
replaced with a large tub, and there were
two additional dishes of water outside.

We should have known when SHE was putting that little
case in the car.

BUT, we were unaware we would be LEFT behind
for the weekend.

Yes, SHE went to Sydney for the weekend.

We had to mind ourselves all weekend until
Sunday night!

How could SHE abandon these three sweet dogs.

All this is true.
It was either one night alone or three at the kennel.
They had a very large meal Saturday morning.
The neighbours were alerted.
They had access to the back garden, the entire house,
and timed lights when it got dark.

They were fed Sunday night before the car was unloaded!

Monday morning we went to the river for a couple of hours.




So they were not hard done by!

No Mischief Monday

No mischief because we (Roxy and Dui) had on our walking strings at the beginning of our walk.

 We are sort of spoiled with all the greenery next to the river.

 Even Bella managed to stay up with us...she's usually way behind.

We walked down to a new place by the river.

 We're above the weir here, so the river looks very good and full.


 We found a very twisty tree.



After we got past the cattle, Dui was allowed to run free all the way back to our car.
And yes, we got good dog treats.

Weekly Update


We've had misty mornings at the river.

This looks like a wave.....it's not.

Lying in the sun.

Playing with friends.
Feeding the magpies.


And barking at CATS!  Just a normal week.

Calling Mother Nature...

come in Mother Nature.

Please send us some rain--not floods,
just some gentle, soaking rain.

On take-off from the Airport today.

We live about  1 mile to the east of this.

Frosty Friday

Another frosty morning....
Dui is the black blob on the left.


But the pelicans don't seem to mind the cold water.


Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Tuesday Excitement

This morning we were at the river, as usual.  
SHE didn't want to go near the water
to try to keep us clean.
BUT...
There was a bird flapping around near the big log.
Demi and Kenzie went to investigate, but didn't bother it.
SHE realised it couldn't fly and waded out to see the problem.
It was actually two Corellas, their legs entwined, stuck to the log with fishing line.
Luckily, Ron had a knife and SHE cut them free.
One fell into the river, and SHE had to get a stick under it.
It just sat for awhile but wouldn't leave its mate--
The more injured, who hid inside the log.  
(No photo was taken so as not to distress it further.)
Wildlife Rescue (WIRES) was called
and a lady arrived 

to take both birds to the zoo hospital.


This is the bird you saw,  in the bag.
The birds weren't very appreciative of HER efforts.
A few painful pecks and talon grabs...

were worth helping them though.
We hope they make it.

Stinkin' Saturday....

A dog, who shall remain nameless,
rolled in something absolutely disgusting

and got a cold bath.

Where's Dui.

Another foggy morning.  This one had frost as well.
Roxy and Dui suddenly took off racing down the track and over the edge towards the river.


 They raced back and forth, crashing through the underbrush.
Suddenly a 'roo bounded up the slope,
 over the paddock fence and into the distance.
(Sorry no photo it took HER by surprise.)

Now where did that pesky 'roo go?

Roxy is looking in the right direction, but it is long gone.
 If you look VERY closely, you can see the 'sun' trying
hard to burn off the fog.



it succeeded--we had a beautiful day!
(the puddles are from a bit of rain we had the other day.)
Do you think we look like real scottish dogs?

Wonky foot Wednesday

I still have my wonky foot.


It doesn't slow me down at all.

Weekend mischief

Did you know that miniature horses look like kangaroos from a distance, through trees?

And you aren't supposed to race ahead, ignoring all yells by your peep?

AND you're not even allowed to bark at them anyway?
Roxy and Dui who got in big trouble.

We didn't either.

Nature Friday

Flowers in the frost.



And a young magpie hoping for breakfast.
A juvenile bird.....still grey.
 He got some.
