Our Cheatin' Walk...

SHE calls this our cheatin' walk.  It's just down our street  and is one of the lead-free areas in town.

We get off our leads as soon as we get there.
Roxy races off.

 It's called Redhill Reserve.
This is us heading up the HILL....BOL!
If you get out a magnifying glass and squint, you might just see Roxy up ahead.
 Now we're walking up the hill.
 Roxy of course has headed off to do her own thing.
 Bella and Roxy are at the top of the hill.
 Roxy and Bella take off at this point and race madly out one of the entrances.
 Bella saw a cat out there about 2 years ago and she goes to look for it.  Roxy just goes because Bella does and Roxy always likes to be first.
But today there's a strange man with a mower there.

 We're heading back to our get the lead on spot. 
 That's the hill behind us in case you didn't notice.
Then we get a treat and head back home.  We live between that white van on the left (look closely) and the red house.
It's our cheatin' walk because it's so close, takes about 10 minutes and SHE doesn't have to walk far.
This is usually our mid-day outing.

A new high in bird chasing!

Roxy chased a new bird at the river.

Ducks and pelican
 He's a pelican.  Her bird list is expanding....
He had to find a quieter place.

Monday Mischief

Roxy wore her special goin' steady collar to the river.

 It didn't make a bit of difference.  She was just as wild as ever.
What a mess!
 Sorry Ernie...
 But a session in the washing machine made it nearly
 as good as new!
It won't go to the river again.

(International) Thrift Shop Day

SHE went to Vinnie's to get us something.  And this is what SHE came back with....

 It just smiles.
Guess who took immediate possession?
 Bella and I didn't even get to sniff it.
 Roxy was determined to wipe that smile right off its face.
Then she took it into her hideout.
(Let's have an International Treat Day next.)

The Regatta

G'Day everyone.... reporting from Australia.

 Remember the Camel Races last month?
Well, tomorrow is the annual Henley-on-Todd Regatta.
It is a Rotary Club fund raiser held on the Todd River near
 Alice Springs based on the  Henley Royal Regatta in England.

The difference is the Todd River is usually dry, so the boats are slightly modified.  BOL!  It's a day of many and varied events.
Such as.....

The Oxford Tubs

Kayak races

The Mixed Maxi Yachts

Boogie Boards

Homemade boats.
And the finale is the Battle of the Boats!
One year the event had to be cancelled!
  It rained and the river was wet!
I'm all set! Bring on the competition!

Thursday is our busiest day!

On Thursdays we're up for our 6:30 a.m. walk.
Home at about 7:30 ready to bark at the Milko who delivers milk next door.
Then the Garbage Truck comes.
Next the man who cleans the garbage bins...(again, next door.)

We're watching a little skink skittering across the bricks.
Followed by the kids going to school.
The recycle bin truck.
People walking by themselves or with dogs.
The street cleaning truck. 
And delivery trucks.

Yes, Thursdays are always busy.
And SHE says noisy.

One spotty dog who does NOT listen and 
runs across a busy street
nearly causing HER to have heart failure.
Comes with an assortment of modified, squeakless stuffies;
beautiful dress collar and 
lead that's been knotted back together.

Yesterday, I, Daisy, was not feeling well.
I didn't want my breakfast--SHE KNEW something was amiss.
I didn't want to go for a walk.
And while they were gone, I hid.

 SHE looked everywhere in the house and in the garden.
But I was VERY well hidden.
After listening to HER yelling and whistling for ages, I came out,
went inside and got under the big bed.
SHE was going to cancel HER morning plans to take me to the
dreaded Vet.

BUT, I came out to have a snack.
(Dodged the Vet as SHE decided to just watch me.  SHE also said I was just messin' with her mind.)

I rallied for the mid-day walk and SHE noticed that I was VERY constipated.
A snack of kibble with parafin, and I'm fighting fit again.

I'm glad I didn't have the disease that this dog has!

PI's Back!!

Saturday morning we had a surprise at the river.
PI !!!
She was back after MANY weeks...
PI got out of her garden and was hit by a car.
Actually, she was chasing the car and it stopped.  PI crashed into it.

 She broke her right front leg and lost a few teeth.
She has been caged for about 6 weeks--having to be quiet!
 So she was ready to RUMBLE.
Kelly and PI, Roxy's best friends.

Roxy's in position  to pounce.
 They raced around like crazy dogs....chasing Kelly, chasing PI
 and wrestling.
 PI had no problems. It was fantastic seeing her again.

If you are wondering where Bella and I are.....
They are usually SOOOOO wild that Bella sits in Kelly's Dad's ute
while I, Daisy, wander down the beach.
