Social Saturday morning

 We had NO WALK on 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.


  1. With all that fun in the mud and the water you had with all your good furiends, we guess Mom made up for Friday. We had a very rainy day on Friday but managed to squeeze a few short walks in between raindrops.

    Hope the rest of your weekend is great too.

  5. All of you had lots of fun!!! We wish we lived in the middle of nowhere instead of a rather bad city!! My mom went out today and left me too but at least she brought me some pizza back home and I got to out run outside in the yard with Blue. It's raining again which is good because it's so dry but I want to go to my Rock!!! Lots of love, Holly & Mom

  7. As I was readin' this post somethin' was goin' round and round in my mind.....bath.....bath......bath - coz there was no way I would get away with standin' in that puddle with a bath happening! Let alone the rest of that fun time stuff!
