Still here....

SHE's had a cold--first one in 6 years--so hasn't been blog-minded.

We've had a great week, though.

Friday morning (because SHE was in a hurry), Dui managed to get out of the gate and spent a blissful 10 minutes harassing the cat across the street until it raced across several gardens--with Dui in hot pursuit--into a stormwater drain.  He then, consented to having the lead attached.

Saturday morning we had a record 16 dogs at the river....all racing around like maniacs, getting wet, covered in burrs and grass and barking!  Sunday we were back to the usual eleven.

We've been having cold mornings--frosty mornings--ideal for playing dog in/dog out (SHE just loves that!)

And one morning there was a kangaroo in our front yard!  First time.  But by the time SHE got the camera and coaxed us inside. (We were suspicious at HER trying to make us indoor dogs when SHE was obviously going out.)  The 'roo was gone.

We've been having mid-morning walks and lying out in the sun.  Dui has been keeping tabs on a Jack Russell that's visiting next door, and bringing dead grass and leaves inside.

But otherwise, we're just hanging around.

We always check out this pile as soon as we get out of the car for our run!
Hope you are having a good week.


  1. Oh noes...spring colds are the worst. We hope SHE is feeling much better each day. Dui you and that front yard cat are just always
    carrying on about something. I'm sure partly due to the cat being out of reach...well it was anyway. Did you show it who was boss of the 'hood?
    hugs madi your bfff

  2. I dunno,
    Sounds like you are having mucho fun.
    Love Noodles

  3. I see that Dui, being the newest and youngest, gets blamed for everything. Around here, it's the bird.

  4. Sounds like a grand time!

  10. I wish a kangaroo could jump into my yard. What fun!

  11. bob and I have had what we call sinus crud for a week, much like a cold but not... I feel for you... would love to see a kangaroo and got a lot of chuckles on Dui's escape

  12. Dear Downunder Friends,

    Perhaps we can trade some of our HOT for some of your COLD? Then things might be perfect for all of us. Also, I have never seen a Roo. My person says I would bark at one. Did you bark?


  13. Cats and Roos, what an exciting week it's been!!

  14. A kangaroo in the yard? I don't know what we would do if that happened here. That sounds like quite a bother

  15. Wow! You have had an exciting time! Roos and cats would send Bentley and Pierre out of their minds! LOL!

  16. Oh no, hope her cold goes away soon. And wow to a kangaroo. That's super duper exciting!

  17. Sorry to hear SHE hasn't been feeling well. It sounds like you all have been having a fun time.

  18. You had sixteen dogs at the river??!!
    That would have been so much fun!!! You're so lucky to have seen a kangaroo in real life! Mum and dad say they've seen kangaroos quite often but none have ever hopped into my yard!!

  19. Dui probably wonder what your cold was all about being he is the youngster. My last scot always wanted to lick my nose when I had a cold. We got rain rain rain coming up from Harvey so it will be a wet Labor Day Weekend.
