Weekend Part 1

Roxy and Bella

On Friday morning we went to the Sports Grounds and chased the birds.

This thing was mowing the Cricket grounds....Look Frankie and Ernie...It's a John Deere!!

 Saturday morning we went to the Devil's Elbow as usual.

Kelly was allowed off the truck so she and Roxy could race to the river.
 We saw lots of these little Red Rump Parrots.
 Went swimming...
 Kelly and Roxy raced around like maniacs. 
 They were crazy girls.  Roxy finally just lay down exhausted.  She had bits of fur missing from her neck, and on her legs.

For the first time, she didn't try to get out of a bath.
Then she slept for a long time.
We think she may have hurt her leg, she favoured it.  She was very subdued all day, looking pitiful 
 and didn't jump around as she usually does.
We just let her sleep and watched her.
 She was back to her usual self this morning.


  1. Poor Roxy, totally exhausted.
    I bet she was dreaming sweet dreams!

  2. Poor baby... Y'all sure have cool birds to chase...Ginger and Hatari would love it

  3. Howdy Mates, grreat chasing of the galahs. We love to chase them on our oval too!! Roxy we're sending you smoochie kisses even though it sounds like your leggie is ok now. Take it easy. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  4. Woof! Woof! FUN weekend part I and you went swimming. Can't wait to see part II. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  5. Take it easy Roxy, nothing worse than a sports strain. Love your parrots. Have a super Sunday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. Did you catch a bird yet? (It's not fair that they can fly away is it?)
    Toodle pip!
    PS Glad Roxy's better.

  7. Sounds like Roxy over did it. We are yet to figure out how to tire Floyd out, he's like the energiser bunny! He just keeps going and going and going!

  8. Wow, looks likes lots of fun. we are glad Roxy's injury was temporary. Have a great day. Lee and Phod

  9. What a great weekend! Glad Roxy is feeling okay, sometimes things get a bit crazy and a long nap makes it all feel better. Nice picture of the parrots, I like seeing the different types of wildlife you have there.

  10. Oh Wow, Running, swimming (any barking, Bites wants to Know) with pals, then a bath and sleeping all day, what could be better!

    PeeS... Mollie and Alfie seem to need a BIGGER picture of you in your Gown... If you have one... could you send it to her?

  14. The rumps on the birds didn't look red to me, but I'm a dog and don't see colo(u)rs well.

  20. Sounds like Roxy was having waaaayyyyy to much fun !

  21. How fun! OMD! Glad Roxy is feeling better and Mr. Fox once tried to attack a machine like that John Deere in the park. Even though he was on the leash, I walked over to the thing and the man on it was laughing at the sight of such a little dog trying to take on the big machine. You girls are so well behaved being able to go off leash and have fun like that. Wish we could come play with you!
