 Sunday morning we FINALLY got in a short walk.  First one since the 'Unfortunate Incident' of Thursday morning when an unleashed pup came up BEHIND us and we lunged HER word not ours to say hi, causing HER to twist HER bad knee with a sickening crunch.

SHE hobbled home and sat most of the day with heating pads around her knee and pain killers.  

Then the rain set in, so we had to practise for our Olympic Sleeping event....Friday and Saturday.

By Saturday morning with knee bandage in place, SHE did manage to hobble to the Farmer's Market, held in a parking garage because of the rain and get a two-week supply of treats.  So we think we were forgiven.

Sunday morning there was a break in the weather and we went for a walk.  Oh, Thursday afternoon, AFTER the 'Unfortunate Incident'  Roxy's new martingale collar arrived....isn't THAT typical! 
 It turned cold, for HER.  Remember we don't have central heating--just a little bar radiator. So we cuddled up on the couch and watched--
 Naturally our favourite part is 'God loves a terrier'
 Bella watched the whole thing.  Roxy and I did some more sleep practise. 

And SHE performed some more surgery.

So look who's back!
Nose a bit  blunt, less spines BUT his squeaker still works!


  1. A morning walk, a good movie a nap and surgery--I think that's a lot for a Sunday!! :-)

  2. We so hope HER knee is better. Mom goes nuts when a loose dog comes running up on us when we are out walking. Their owners are just so ignorant. They don't understand that a loose dog is a threat to dogs on a leash.

    Wow, that stuffie sure has a lot of lives, he must be part cat.

  4. You really have a great weekends with your family! happy Sunday!

  6. OMD OMD... that poor echidna... it is a mere shadow of its FORMer Self.
    I certainly hope that your mom's Knee is better. AND STAYS that WAY.

    We have TWO Olympic Sleeping Events so far..

    2. Synchronized Sleepers It is good that your are in FULL OUT Practice Mode. So do you want to HOST another Sleeping Event? I am SURE that you would have PLENTY of PAWticipants. It is somethingy that we ALL LOVE to Do. I'm just sayin ladies.

  7. Pee S... I was thinkin that it might be nice if you would put up a BEFORE and NOW picture of your echnida. AND.. HOW can the squeaker STILL be workin? YOU are real Stuffie Guttin Specialists.

We have had to say goodbye to our echnida. Its totally kaput! Keep warm girls. This cold weather is giving our mum the grumbles. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  19. I love a bit of TB watching myself, when I'm not running around like a loon... My favourite is the weather forecast on ABC News Breakfast, always good to know what sort of day you're in for!
