We're hunting...

Oh well....better luck tomorrow.
Now that it's cold, we're allowed to hunt....
too cold for snakes.

Canine Conundrum.....

SHE would like to know WHY, a dog who SWIMS.

 AND walks through EVERY muddy puddle she can.....

 Balks at stepping in a puddle that appears.
 after heavy rain in the carport?!

This puddle--more of a damp patch--forms just next to the back car door.  Bella refuses to step in it.  She tiptoes around it, balancing on the garden hose.  She needs to go through it either to get in the car, or go for a walk.

A Busy Year...

It has been a busy year for one little scottie.....

That would be me.....Dui....aka...Duiman, Rogue, Boyo
 and other names not fit for blogging.

I've been here ONE YEAR.
Today is my FIRST Gotcha Day!

It's also our 1300th post.

Dui's Report....

I've been practising my Junior Police Skills.
I successfully apprehended and disarmed Blue Bear 
aka Big Ted aka Lefty.

I also sorta dis-eared him, too.

May 22

Yep, May 22nd!

It mean a lot in this household.

It was Kendra's Birthday......

It is the anniversary of our present car......

It was NEARLY Dui's Gotcha Day...

It is a reminder of the Great Stilnox (Ambien, Zolpidem) incident....
but that's another story......


most importantly,

when SHE got my papers from the Rescue People.....

It was MY ( Roxy) estimated BIRTHDAY!


I received  package from my ♥♥♥Ernie♥♥♥ !!!!

Happy Birthday 'To the One I Love'.....

SHE made the others stay in the house while I got to 
open MY present alone.

 It was FILLED with gifts!
 There were stuffies that can FLOAT!
 The fluffy bone, and a scrunchy pig!

SHE got a BONE key chain and a WHOLE BOX
of those SQUIRREL NUT ZIPPERS that SHE loves.
 Dui was cryin' and carrying on, so SHE let him out!  I had to protect all my stuff.
 Dui decided he wanted the PIG!

No Way, Dui!
 Then he grabbed it and gave it the Scottie Death Shake!

 Oh, for the Official Birthday photo, I wore my new STAR collar that Ernie sent me in his EASTER package
and special Roxy and Ernie tag.


I forgot to tell you that Ernie sent me SPECIAL BIRTHDAY sunnies.....just like HIS!

Muuuuwaaaaah Ernie!  I love you! and everything in my 
Birthday package.

Oh, it rained all last night, but we did get in a big walk and had a dinner with Sardines
and cheese and ice cream!

Sarge's Snicker Saturday

 This week we had extra CLEAN poo bags.

SHE found them in HER dog-walking trackies AFTER they'd been through the wash, and dried.

They were a bit damp, as they were in a wad, but perfectly useable.

Occasionally, this happens to a treat.
This is for Princess Leah who always finds beautiful Butti pillars....

 We just thought this was cute.  
Well.....SHE thought it was cute.

It just makes us hungry!

WARNING:  lots of blurred photos.....sorry.

Can you see it?
On the  right side of the track, by the trees.

 It's strange and was never there before.
 Roxy runs quickly past and barks.
 Dui investigates.
 Someone left some dangerous rubbish.
 Roxy continues to keep her distance and bark.
 Dui takes a closer look.
 Roxy keeps her distance and barks.
 Bella comes to investigate.
 They do a security check.
 It's not dangerous.

 Roxy keeps her distance and barks!

Find the Dui-man....

 Is this a bit easier?

Dui loves running through tall grass, do you?

Mother's Day.

We hope all of you have a wonderful Mother's Day 
and spoil your mums.

May 10th was Daisy's Gotcha Day.
It was Mother's Day, as well, that year.

Many of you know that Daisy was bought with some of the inheritance SHE received when HER mother died.
Daisies were HER mother's favourite flower, so Hemskirk Charisma became Daisy.

Scotties are not common in Oz, so the fact SHE found one--and a female at that--
so quickly was incredible luck.

It was also coincidental that SHE was going to Sydney that weekend.

It was meant to be.

 Daisy was outside running around with her brothers and sisters.  They'd made the whole-day drive up from Victoria the day before.

Daisy simply walked over and sat down....choosing HER.  
The siblings just faded into the background.

Then started the six hour drive home,
meeting a new sibling, Kendra, and flaking out on the couch.
Daisy was always the peacemaker.  
The Ambassador scottie, willing to allow
children and other people pat her.

She could be counted on to do the right thing.
We miss that girl.

Gorgeous days...

Usually when we have a foggy morning, and yes, that's a light covering of frost.
 The day turns into one of those beautiful days.
This is our second outing.
Those pee-mail posts are up again.
 We check out the local gossip.
Chase a few birds.....
Those are galahs.  And see our Autumn colours?
 And play some wild games.

The other day, a friend of HERS heard us playing and
 thought we were fighting.
Can you believe that?
