200th Post!

 This is our 200th post.  Can't believe it!  So we thought we'd just post some pictures of ourselves.

Have a Great and Spooky Weekend!

Thursday, October 28, 2010


 We have lots of places to go for walks.  Today, we're walking along the cycle track near the river.  Bella and I checked out the picnic area to see if there were any snacks.....there were.
 Then Bella took off to chase some crows that were way across the paddock.  She didn't catch any.  One swooped her when she ran back to us.
 We alway find interesting smells.  Sometimes we can hardly walk because we are too busy sniffing.
 I love getting in the high grass.  BUT I wasn't allowed.  It's warming up and that means snakes!  If you see a snake here, you can safely bet it's poisonous.
 Actually, it was quite a long walk, and it is getting hotter.  So we rested in the shade and looked across the river to OUR beach. 
Not much beach now that the river is still up.  When we got home all three of us went to sleep.

Daisy the Brave

 Hi Everybody.  Look how brave I was today!
 I've never seen these things before.

 Okay, so there was a fence; but it was only wire and they could have busted right through it and stomped on me.  Look at those HUMONGOUS horns! 
And where, you ask, was Bella?  That killer of baby birds.  That tormentor of Frogs?
She stayed WAY, WAY BACK!

Duck Pond Again

 The rain stopped and we went to the duck pond.  We love the duck pond.  I ran ahead and told all those ducks to get in the water.  There were lots of little ducklings and we had Bella the bird killer with us.

BUT, SHE just wanted a nice picture of the three of us together!
 We wanted to look at the ducks

Can we go now????

Soggy Sunday

 Rain again.  The good news is that our state has been declared drought-free.  First time since February 2001!  We've spent most of the day sleeping.     When we finally went outside, Bella spent her time.....
Looking for more baby birds.

She did it again....

 Yep, this morning Bella murdered another baby bird.  Our garden is fast becoming an avian cemetery!  I've  told her that she's acting like a cat--but she doesn't care!
On a lighter note, the callistemons have started to bloom all up and down the street, in lots of different colours.  These two are in our garden.

Bet you can guess why their more common name is a Bottlebrush.

My bird

 This morning I found this little bird between the shed and fence.    I just stood still and watched it.  It moved closer......and closer.
 We think it fell out of this nest.

 I stayed very still and just watched it.  Then in a flash, that Bella WALKED OVER me, SMUSHED me down into the fencing wire, GRABBED my bird and MURDERED it! 
It was MY bird!
Then she went back to look for more!

Wordless Wednesday--Kendra the Sticky Beak*

*Sticky Beak is the Australian term for someone who is very nosy.

Another date with Millie

 We went to see Millie today.  We haven't seen her in about a month--since before we went camping.
 She had the 'career girl' operation and only got her stitches out the other day.
 Her parents were trying to keep her quiet...............AS IF!
I played with her too; but I'm too fast, and the pictures came out all blurry.

 We ran all over the place!
 Kendra found a cool spot out of the way.
We think she should probably play with other dogs, because
She's developing SCOTTIE EARS!!!!
